Regency Ristrictions

I love Regency romance and one day I will write a true Regency era romance, but I have become quite found of the freedom I have with Sci-Regency. I’ve talked before about how I ended up with the Sci-Regency because gay relationships were punishable by death at the time and I did not like the […]

Awesome Dinner Rolls

I know I’ve been posting a lot of recipes lately and my apologies for that. I promise to get back to a variety of blog posts. I’m always on the look out for bread machine recipes and I found a really good one. Oh my golly goodness! I made these the other night and all […]

Chewy Coconut Cookies

I made these yesterday because I was out of chocolate chips and my youngest was dying for some cookies. They turned out really well.  Nice taste.  Like a butter cookie with a little extra.

My Digital Art Journey

I’ve bought myself a pen tablet with the display—it’s like having my very on sketch screen—and I’m finding that it is a great way to let my brain rest from writing.  Not only that, but it seems to be helping my writing. It’s like one form of creativity boosts the the other.  I had never […]

Whacky Research

My critique partners and I have a running joke that the FBI has us on a watch list because of the things we lookup in the name of research.  I certainly hope that isn’t the case but I have to admit I’ve looked up some pretty strange things for research.  Here are just a few. […]

Seven Things About Editing

I just finished my first round edits for the rerelease of My Fair Captain, and as some of you may know it’s been awhile. It felt great to get back to it after so long. It reminded me of all the things I like and dislike about the editing process, so I thought I’d share […]

I Don’t Read Gay Romance

I know, I know that sounds like a strange confession for a gay romance author, but it’s true. Obviously, I have no issue with gay romance, since I love writing it, but other than critiquing for my critique partners, I don’t generally read it. Most of my pleasure reading is done in the historical romance […]
