I've decided to begin doing some Facebook Live videos, in which I will answer questions, on my page! I've received a lot of inquiries over the past few years, and I'd like to get the conversation going in my videos.
Please send me your questions, and I'll write them down and answer them in a live video! Your questions can range anywhere from my life as an author and mom or being a mom of a child with Tourette Syndrome, to my writing process or general interests. I'm happy to answer it all!
There are several different ways that you can ask me a question. There is the contact sheet on this website, through Twitter or Facebook DMs, or by commenting on this post.
I look forward to hearing from you! Happy Thursday!
I'm Seeking ARC Reviewers!
I'm seeking ARC reviewers for the fourth--and final--novel in the Mason Siblings series, Final Battle For Love!
If you're interested, you can contact me over social media, or through my contact page.
Thank you all so much!
Lady Emaline Mason has dedicated her life to the rescuing and healing of animals. She has no expectations for finding love as her sisters have before her, but after a shocking experience with the family’s doctor, every exchange between them feels different. She is determined to despise the scoundrel, but somehow that fiery disdain is turning into a burning desire…
Dr. Lord Simon Claridge, heir to the Earldom of Merrington, has known about the Mason family’s involvement in spy activity for some time and has gradually become their personal physician. After an incident with one of the Mason sisters, things changed. His rapport with Lady Emaline became strained, and as much as he tried to stop it, the woman was suddenly everywhere in his thoughts.
With the increasing danger surrounding Lady Emaline and the very real threat to their mortality, will Simon and Emaline have the opportunity for their budding affection to grow, or will they discover their love only to have it ripped away from them?
Join them in this concluding novel in the Mason Siblings series as they fight together in one final battle for love…
Marrying Winterborne by Lisa Kleypas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As a reader of historical romance, it's not often that I come across a novel in which the hero and heroine are on good romantic terms from the start, and circumstances/events/other people are their obstacles throughout, but Lisa Kleypas pulled it off. I absolutely loved Marrying Winterborne.
Helen is shy and kindhearted, and Rhys is a lovely mix of power and gentleness. These two worked wonderfully together. Their passion for each other is electrifying.
I think that my only criticisms would be that I wish the year was posted at the beginning of the first chapter, and there were several proofing errors. Otherwise, this was a thoroughly enjoyable read! I'm looking forward to the others in the series.

This morning, the cover for Final Battle For Love, Book 4 in the Mason Siblings series, went LIVE! I'm so thrilled to show it to you!
Final Battle For Love is coming soon! I'll be sure to post announcements here.
From what I understand, this might be the last artist-drawn cover that I have, as the next series will likely be changed to altered photographs. I'm so thrilled! I hope you all enjoy it!
Thank you for reading!

Chimera Catalyst is an engaging and exciting read that kept me reading until the end. The voice was highly entertaining, and the plot kept me eager for more. Susan Kuchinskas wrote characters with depth that were fun to read.

I've received a lot of messages over the past month about my post on Scary Mommy regarding my 8-year-old son's Tourette's diagnosis... Yesterday, I was responding to someone and it hit me that the school year starts in five days. I mean, I knew that it was coming, but it really hit home that I'd have to have a sit-down chat with his new teacher and explain my son's tics. I've never done that before.
When he had his diagnosis, we were in the middle of the school year, and I was able to explain things piece-by-piece (as the information came to me) to his teacher. Having this discussion for the first time with a new teacher is, quite honestly, very daunting to me.
I want my son to be accepted and understood. He's developed new tics over the summer, and once school (and the accompanying stress) starts up, I expect there to be some fluctuation and possibly new tics to deal with. My goal is to minimize these stresses for him in this transition to Grade 3, to let him know that he's loved. My worry, however, is his school environment. I trust the teachers' understanding, but patience and peer support is so important.
My husband and I spoke with our son yesterday, asking him if there's anything in particular that he'd like us to say to his teacher. He shrugged, shook his head, cleared his throat, and said "not really." He's so brave and strong, so friendly and outgoing. The logical part of my brain tells me that he'll do just fine, but my sensitive mom side just wants my baby to be safe and happy.
I've had a lot of support and reassurance that it will be fine, and I'm sure that it will. But I'm still worried.
