The Makeover Challenge has been getting some really great reviews! I’m super happy, because it’s one of my all-time favorite novels I’ve written ❤ If you’ve read it, would you consider leaving an honest review on Amazon (linked above)? It doesn’t have to be long or anything. All reviews support authors and help us reach our audiences!

I’m hard at work on my next book, which is tentatively titled Saving Serena. It’s going to be action-packed 🙂 I’ve written a couple of mystery-themed romances before, specifically my paranormal romance Hereafter and my very first novel, Heart of Glasswhich reached the #1 spot on Amazon’s Best Sellers in Lesbian Romance. I’m super excited about adding another to my list!

Winters tend to be kind of hard for me, so I’m working on learning to love the snow and coziness that we can find when the earth starts to hibernate. I hope you’ll all have a peaceful, love-filled holiday season ❤

New lesbian romance audiobooks!

Hi everyone! Audiobook production of my novels has really started to pick up over the last couple of months. So far, every single one of my novels has been made into an audiobook, with the most recent (The Secret Admirer, written with my wife Ruby Grandin) currently in the works!

I’m consistently blown away by how beautifully the narrators bring my stories to life. I can be pretty hard on myself (aren’t we all?) and hearing my own writing read aloud in such heartfelt ways… It makes me really proud of my work. Listening to a book is a whole new experience, because the emotion and nuances of tone are right there for you to hear. The actresses who perform my audiobooks are incredibly talented, and they’ve made my characters even more relatable than I wrote them (not to mention sexy, omg).

Give them a listen! I know you’ll be glad you did ❤

#1 Best Seller!

I was beyond stunned when my editor texted me early Wednesday morning to tell me that HEART OF GLASS has reached #1 on Amazon’s Best Sellers in Lesbian Romance list — and I’m still floating on a cloud.

In all honesty, I never expected my first novel to be this popular. I adore HEART OF GLASS. I love the characters and the mystery and the chilly, mystic atmosphere of Wavestead, which has become like a daydream home for me. But I had so many doubts when I was writing it. Was it too slow? Was it as romantic as I hoped? Did the characters and their emotions ring true?

From the reception it’s getting, I know at least that I’m doing something right. It’s an immense, immense confidence booster for a person who knows she needs to work on her confidence. I’m so humbled and delighted by the support I’m getting from friends and fans, and I’m so grateful that my editors introduced me to this world and are helping me through it every step I take. My heart is overflowing.

I’m in the middle of writing a new novella, RESCUE ME. It’s about Elise, a woman who gets tongue-tied when she tries to speak to anyone she finds attractive, and Sasha, Elise’s beautiful and confident mentor at the marine animal rescue where they both work. Elise and Sasha embark on a rescue mission save a humpback whale who’s gotten tangled in fishing line. Along the way, as Elise tries to get her courage up to ask Sasha out, she learns some surprising things about Sasha’s past girlfriends.

I’m having a lot of fun writing it (I love whales and seals!) and I hope that those who’ve enjoyed HEART OF GLASS will look forward to it 🙂

HEART OF GLASS is here!

I’m more delighted than I can say to announce that HEART OF GLASS is available on Amazon in Kindle format and as a paperback! It’s also available to read for FREE on Kindle Unlimited!

HEART OF GLASS on Amazon

It’s unbelievably thrilling to have a novel published. When my novella, LOVE BIRDS, came out, I was so stoked, but a full-length novel is a totally different story — and HEART OF GLASS was with me through some very rough parts of my life. Writing it helped me pull through, gave me something to look forward to when very little else could. I’m so utterly delighted to share it with you.

And — this has utterly blown my mind — HEART OF GLASS has been at #3 on Amazon’s best sellers in lesbian romance list for several days now!

Here’s the description:

Clara Duncan is adrift.

She’s always been a loner, so she never suspected that her breakup with her first love would leave her this hopeless. Clara abandons her old life and moves to a quiet, coastal New England town, where she looks forward to days of aimless wandering, like a seagull on the wind. She’s convinced herself that this is good enough, until she finds an antique porcelain urn washed up on the beach–a discovery that leads her to a beautiful historian who literally falls into her lap.

The warm and enthusiastic Ginny is everything Clara could hope for, but their budding relationship is fraught with doubts. Clara is afraid of repeating the mistakes that led to her last breakup, afraid of losing herself in passion. And as if things weren’t complicated enough, the mysterious, charismatic Autumn has her eye on Clara—and some disturbing words of warning where Ginny is concerned.

Can Clara and Ginny be together while still staying true to themselves? And why does Clara feel that unraveling the mystery behind the urn will answer the questions her own heart is asking?

I’m just vibrating with excitement to share this story. I hope from the bottom of my heart that you love it as much as I do!

HEART OF GLASS is coming October 30th!

I’m so, so excited to share with you that my novel, HEART OF GLASS, will be released this coming Friday, October 30th!

HEART OF GLASS book trailer!

I’m bouncing in my chair with excitement to show you what I’ve been working on for the past week! I created a book trailer for my upcoming novel with Rose and Star Press, HEART OF GLASS. Ruby and I took the footage for the video at a local beach with the help of one of our photographer friends.

I’m really, really pleased with this, so I hope you enjoy it! And please look forward to the release of HEART OF GLASS soon!

HEART OF GLASS mock up cover reveal

I am super, SUPER excited to reveal the mock up cover of my upcoming novel, HEART OF GLASS. My publishers, Rose and Star Press, created it for me this past weekend. Their covers are always SO lovely, and I’m really delighted by this one — it’s simply perfect.

HEART OF GLASS is set in a coastal New England town, and follows Clara Duncan as she tries to rebuild her life after the crumbling of her relationship with her girlfriend, who Clara was sure was “the one”. She meets Ginny, a sunny, beautiful historian, and together they set about unraveling a love story that stretches through decades of time.
