New Book: Annual Leave

I have a new book out! Annual Leave. It is about a young, frazzled soccer mom who goes on vacation and meets a man who challenges all her assumptions.

Happily married, with three kids under six, a dog, and a house in the suburbs, Heather has all the trappings of a conventional soccer mom. She’s also slowly losing her mind. Her husband convinces her to take a “momcation,” three days at a sunny resort with nothing to do but sleep late, sip margaritas, and get work on her tan.

It’s a great plan, but it doesn’t take into account Damon. Handsome, funny, and sarcastic he has an uncanny ability to get under Heather’s skin, an ability that turns into the basis for an unlikely friendship and, maybe, just maybe, a whole lot more.

I don’t want to oversell this… but if you don’t fall in love with Heather and Damon, there is something horrible wrong with you. 😉

No, but seriously, this is one of the best things I’ve written. If you like my stuff generally, you’ll love this.



Long Delay Explained

I haven’t had a new book out in quite a while. It is hard to explain precisely why. I had some changes in my living and work situations, which were disruptive to my life, but even more to my writing routine. It was just hard to get pages out, and what I was writing was weirdly uneven. Part of my problem is that in some ways I am still trying to figure out what kind of writer I want to be. I get bored easily, which means I sort of need to evolve over time to stay interested. I think, though, that over the past few months I was trying to force it with the consequences that nothing was quite coming together as I wanted.

In any case, I do finally have a new book complete. It is currently being read and edited. It should be out in the next few weeks. Hopefully, my fans have not forgotten about me in the meantime.

I’m also excited about a new project — well, and old new project. I’m revisiting Bill and Terri from Two Sides of Terri ( That one won’t be done right away, but I have a really fun and sexy direction to take their story.

Stay in touch. I love hearing from all of you.
