Writing Update

I must apologize for my silence of late. There has been a lot going on in my personal life, but I am still working.  I’m doing edits on My Highland Laird, the next brand new book in the Sci-Regency series, and I’m working on self edits for The Tin Star in preparation for its re-release with […]

Happy 4th of July!

It’s been a little hectic around my house lately, but I wanted to take the time to wish all of you a wonderful holiday weekend!

So going along with my daydream, being a vet is out. The closest vet school is  A&M.  Can’t […]

The Amazing Kimber Sauce

I’ve been promising this recipe for a while now and I finally remembered to ask Kimber if I could share it.  This is a family recipe from my good friend and critique partner, Kimberly Gardner.  My boys fell in love with it and named it Kimber Sauce so it had become a staple in our household; […]
