Two Xmas Favorites

Was your holiday an enjoyable one? I hope so. Our Christmas morning was filled with surprises and good cheer- and I felt like a spoiled kid. 🙂

Here are two gifts that I adore; a Scentsy Burner that is absolutely gorgeous- from my son and daughter-in-law, and a novel- from my sister, by author Nadia Hashimi called, The House Without Windows.


This photo doesn’t do this burner justice. It is so lovely.


We enjoyed “Tea & Comfy” at 8 am on Christmas morning; I highly recommend it. That’s the book mentioned above. It hooked my attention straight away. 🙂



Well, there were a number of surprises along the way as I wrote my story, Left. In fact, although the story centers around Phia, her friend Sabi has become a new inspiration for a new story line. Her character has been a lot of fun developing and I certainly think she deserves her own piece of the pie.

Sabi’s life is percolating in the background as I finalize my current projects. I’ll keep you in the loop as it evolves further. 🙂

The View From Here

Paper. That’s what the view is from here. The good news is that the pile is getting smaller each day, so the books are coming soon. My novella, Left, and two Kindle Short Reads; Awake and Just Call Me Spy, will be available for purchase, on Amazon, this fall.

Also, I’m thrilled with the twists and turns my story, Left, has taken. Wait until you meet Sabi. 🙂

In the mean time check out my Facebook page for updates or join me over on Pinterest.

Enjoy your fall!


Just Call Me Spy

To be released very soon:


Sarah has finally reached a place of contentedness in her life. No, it may not be what other’s think she should be doing, but it is working for her, at least for now.

Will a surprise visit by her old colleague threaten to change the life that she has built up around her, or will he retreat back into the far corners of the world as he usually does?

This Amazon Short Read will take you on a fast pace journey through blueberry fields, secret rooms and ultimately the final discovery that will unlock the key to Sarah’s heart.

Sadly, some times the legal thing to do, isn’t the moral thing to do.

Current Reads

Life is very busy and the Christmas rush doesn’t help the endless to-do list. When leisure time calls, I have been opening Antony Millen’s latest novel, The Chain, and stepping into his protagonists’ story.

His words have taken me all around the globe on every adventure as the characters seek answers to their father’s controversial past. I enjoy the young fellows that he writes about, but as a woman, I wish to relate to female characters as well. He delivers.

Enter Julia and Avis. The first, a gun slinging alpha female (who’s a good shot), and the other, a northern woman who holds the clues for the boys’ next adventure. Both women are connected by the boys’ father. I’ll share more once I complete this excellent piece of work. Until then…

The story is taking me to India. I’ll be in touch when I return.
