Someone's fate in my hands? No, thanks!

Last week, my kids and I were swimming and, as we usually do when we’re in the pool, listening to the radio. Our favorite afternoon DJ happened to be off the air that day, because he was at the courthouse for jury duty.  It brought up an interesting discussion between my oldest and myself. He wanted to know if I […]

Labor Day (and a sale!)

It’s only Tuesday, but Labor Day is already on my mind. The weather feels a little different around here the last day or so. It’s not fall weather, exactly – the temperatures are still hot and we’re still jumping in the pool – but there’s a different feel to the air, if you know what I mean. There’s that fall-like […]

The book title that had nothing to do with the book

So, I’m reading this book, The Coach House by Florence Osmund. I’m 200 pages into this 351 page book (57% of the way through), and here’s the thing that is really standing out to me: there has yet to be a single mention of a coach house. In fact, I don’t think I’ve even see the word coach by itself […]

Thank you!

So, starting Sunday (the 18th), I noticed a very interesting trend in my sales: they skyrocketed in the UK. I’m not sure what happened, but I wanted to say thank you for buying my books and I truly hope you’re enjoying them. Things are starting to settle down a bit here.  We’re getting close to starting our school year, and […]

The Original Sinners Series – A Review

The Original Sinners is a series of four books by Tiffany Reisz. The individual books in the series are (in order): The Siren, The Angel, The Prince, and The Mistress. I was initially introduced to the series through the Tell Harlequin book panel. They occasionally send me full books, or samples of books, which I’m to read and then complete […]

The heat is melting my brain!

It is so hot here! All week, the temperatures have been in the upper 90s, with a heat index of at least 103 every day, usually 105 or higher.  There’s no other way to put it: It sucks! I wouldn’t usually be wishing for fall or winter, but after this week, I kind of am. I love to swim but […]

Ripped Away is FREE Wednesday and Thursday!

I mentioned this last week, but since I was making website changes, and had some downtime, I thought I’d mention it again in case you missed it or forgot. I’m offering Ripped Away, my most recent release (which came out in April of this year) for free this Wednesday, August 14th, and Thursday, August 15th, 2013. In Ripped Away, Laurel […]

Is sadism fun? Maybe!

I bet that got your attention, didn’t it? lol Okay, so before I start, the disclaimer: I’m not into sadism, masochism, or any of that other kind of stuff. Not in my real life anyway. But, I’d say about a year ago, I got this email from Harlequin, a book publisher. I’m a member of their Tell Harlequin panel, and […]

Back in business!

It appears the downtime happened overnight and was fixed this morning. There may be some of you that had to wait a bit longer, and I do apologize for that, but it looks like everything is all set now. I believe I’ve got all the major things set up again – purchasing links, book excerpts, the blog, and links to […]

Farewell, Dorothy Parker – A Review

I was recently given the honor of receiving an advance copy of Ellen Meister‘s book Farewell, Dorothy Parker. I must confess that, although the name Dorothy Parker was familiar to me, I didn’t know much of anything at all about the woman. Therefore, when it came time to read the book, I waited for about a week. During this week, […]
