Dodo Birds and Purple Iguanas

It’s Thursday! Excited at the prospects, I’m sitting over here patiently awaiting all the goodness that Thursday tends to bring and working on submissions.

Dirty Words…

I remember when I first came into this industry several years ago, I hadn’t even considered using a pen name until the editor who’d decided I was worthy of a try at this thing contacted me and asked me what name I’d be writing as. I felt rather pressured to come up with something on …

A Few Good Men Looking for a Few Good Wives

Since I’m currently working on a military romance to be released later this summer, I thought I’d recycle an old post I came up with many moons ago when I first began this career. It was appropriate then, but times have obviously changed and we now say spouses rather than automatically defer to the “wives” …
