HELLO EVERYONE & HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
It's that time of the year again. Gift buying, wrapping, parties, family gatherings, eating (eating, eating and more eating...). Yes, it's the holiday season! I've spent most of the time since Thanksgiving sick, but I'm hoping to get over this nasty sinus infection soon. In the meantime, I wanted to thank all of you who stop by and visit my blog. Huge thanks to the booksellers and reviewers who get the word out about my books. And the biggest thank you goes to my readers. You pick up my books and write wonderful emails. It's special to hear from all of you. It's an even bigger thrill to know you like my books. An author can't ask for more than that!
The great news is that I have several releases scheduled for 2009. You'll get two new Hawaii-based single titles - IT'S HOTTER IN HAWAII (April '09) and HOLDING OUT FOR A HERO (Oct. '09) as well as a Hawaii Christmas novella in the anthology, KISSING SANTA CLAUS (Oct. '09). For those who missed YOUR MOUTH DRIVES ME CRAZY (July '07) the first time around, you can read that first Hawaii-based contemporary when it's re-released in March '09.
Until then, have a safe and happy holiday season. We'll chat again in 2009!
After twelve years as a divorce lawyer specializing in unhappy endings, I am now writing books for a living. Before everyone starts thinking that you can sell a novella and an anthology and then afford to give up your day job – STOP! No, no, no. That's not what happened. And, unless eating and paying the mortgage are not high priorities for you, I wouldn't recommend that sort of drastic life (and economic) change. My sudden career switch resulted from my husband getting one of those "can't turn it down" job offers.
With only a few months' notice, his work took us from Maryland to our current home in California. Instead of days filled with court, clients and a great deal of whining and complaining (by them and me), I now write for a living. Well, I'm supposed to write. Some days that's a bit more difficult than others. Let's say that theoretically my days are now filled with writing.
When not working on something, writing or otherwise, I spend as much time as possible with my supportive and adorable husband James. Think of me as a recovering lawyer. And, really, if you're going to recover from something that exhausting, then San Diego is a good place to do it.
