#EveryBodyIsBeautiful is here!


I got an exciting email a few months back inviting me, as a long-time customer of Woman Within plus sized clothing, to participate in their ‘real women’ campaign! Their plan is to feature women who actually wear their clothing and that is me! I posted informal photos on my Facebook page when the photo shoot happened in February and I have to say it was so much fun and such a fun day being treated like a VIP.

The #EveryBodyIsBeautiful campaign went live today! I hope you’ll stop over and take a look at the other talented and wonderful women who are featured – and thanks to Woman Within for such an opportunity!

50 Shades of Greener – The Return!

Three years ago, I joined authors Eileen Dreyer, Loralee Lillibridge and Laurie Kuna on an adventure visit to Ireland. It was my first trip there (in spite of my mostly-Irish DNA, I was never truly drawn to it before!) and I planned to do some on-site research for the fourth book in my WARRIORS OF THE STONE CIRCLES series which must end in Ireland.

It was grand! It was brilliant! It was lovely! (those are the Irish triumvirate of exclamations I discovered!)

Highlights – Cliffs of Moher, Poulnabroune Tomb, The Burrens, GREEN, Drombeg, Dublin, Newgrange, GREEN, Ashley Park Manor House and grounds, fairy hills, Book of Kells, GREEN, Dingle!, ArdMor stones, Isabel Bennett (archeologist), laughing like loons, GREEN, getting lost and having an amazing experience!!



So, we’re returning to Ireland for the next two weeks and I’ll be posting photos and videos over on my FB page – stop over, comment, ask questions or just laugh as we will be doing!

The STORM is coming!

A while ago, I wrote a dark, STEAMY series of romances for Kensington’s Brava line. They are different from my usual Harlequin Historicals – there are paranormal/fantasy elements and are much darker, much steamier, erotic historical romances where the story and characters develop through the sexual journey…and, of course, get their H-E-A.

Well, I got the rights back and will be releasing these books in early 2018…. To tease you a bit…. Pre-orders available soon!

Celebrating THE CALL!

  It was twenty – that’s 20 – years ago this weekend that then editorial assistant Cindy Hwang called me with the news – Berkley Jove wanted to publish my book – A LOVE THROUGH TIME – in their time travel line!  It was an amazing feeling when she called. Made more exciting was that I was in a hospital bed in my family room, recuperating from fracturing a spinal vertebra! (for the second time!)…. The physical therapist who was there had no idea of what was happening but I expressed interest in the offer, told Ms. Hwang that I would need the weekend to consider and that I would call her back. . . .

Cue the hysterical screaming!! I scared the PT so badly she left. I called my hubby and all my friends in NJRW and then began the process of getting an agent. Did I mention this call came on the Monday of Thanksgiving week in 1997? Yes it was! With the help and advice of my NJRW writing colleagues, I contacted prospective agents, sent out the manuscript and signed with Linda Kruger (at the time with the Fogelman Agency). Within weeks, the contract was signed and I was about to be a PUBLISHED AUTHOR….a real published author!

Now, 20 years and 45 publications later, that call, THE CALL, still brings back the memories of the excitement of the day.  To celebrate, I’m doing a giveaway over on FB –



If you stop over my FB profile  or  my FB author page – you can leave a comment that puts you in the giveaway – the gift includes a copy of the original release, the newest edition, a lovely Scottish-themed handbag and two time travel romances from my wonderfully talented friend Ceci Giltenan! I’ll pick a winner at random from everyone who comments on either page on December 1.

Won’t you please come over and help me celebrate 20 years of being a published romance author!
