On Wednesday, I’ll be heading out again – as usual in the springtime for me — but this time it’s a first — I’m going to Ireland for the first time! Although I’ll be on my own for a couple of days, I’ll be meeting writer friends in Dublin and then traveling south and west and out to the Dingle peninsula to spend a week writing… A dream trip for certain.
And, as I did on my last trip to Scotland in 2009, I’ll be posting some touring, traveling and research tidbits here on my website blog….and photos, of course!
These photos are not ones I’ve taken but I hope to have some that will rival them…..and remind me of the magic and mystery of the place long after I arrive home. So, cross your fingers and wish me luck as I set out alone….in a car…on the other side of the road!! Talk to you soon!!
I’m heading to Milwaukee for Barbara Vey’s weekend of fun to celebrate romance readers. Although the actual luncheon sold-out in TWO WEEKS, there are two events that are open to the public — the Authors’ Q&A on Friday at 6pm and the booksigning on Saturday from 3:30-4:30pm. These events will be held at the Clarion Hotel on Howell St. near the airport.
There are more than 60 authors attending – take a look here for a list of all of them!
So, if you’re in the area, please stop by!

March is going to be an exciting month for me — but it’s not going to come in like a lion and go out like a lamb — it’s just going to ROAR all the way through. Why? Because, after almost a year of waiting, I’ll have 2 new books – each one beginning a new series — out this month!
RISING FIRE: A Novel of the Stone Circles — will be released this week – on Tuesday, March 3 – and it begins my paranormal/fantasy series about the human descendants of ancient gods who must battle an evil determined to destroy humanity! William and Brienne will become the first of the Warriors of Destiny, setting themselves on a path that will force them to choose between good and evil, between humanity and gods and between love and loss. The first book in a four-book series, it’s my first venture into an alternate history set in Scotland (and Orkney), England and Ireland. Book 2 – RAGING SEA – will follow in October! Here’s a link to pre-order or buy it or to read the excerpt!
STOLEN BY THE HIGHLANDER – will be out in print on March 17 and in digital on April 1st and it’s the first in my new A HIGHLAND FEUDING series. Set in medieval Scotland and based on a true clan feud that lasted more than 300 years, STOLEN is a sexy story about honor and disguises and deception. . . and love. Brodie Mackintosh is one of two contenders for the chieftainship of the powerful Mackintosh Clan and, if chosen, he would wed the most beautiful woman in Scotland — Arabella Cameron. But murder comes between them and only love can show them the way to peace — if they survive the feud! To pre-order or buy or to check out the excerpt, visit here!
I hope you’ll give them both a try!! And if you do, please post a review in your favorite review place! (any retailer or GoodReads, etc.!) Thanks!
