Powell’s Pics

My dear, sweet pal Lisa sent me some pictures from the Powell’s book signing on the 18th.

I may not have had a sign, but I did have a kick-ass hat. Compliments of the lovely Lisa (again). (And yes, you can call me Dr. Jones for short.)… Read more »

Some nights, a woman just wanted to bash her brain against a wall to keep from screaming. For Casey Simopolous, this was one of those nights.

“Yo, sistah. My tongue’s not getting any wetter over here by itself.” The blond frat-wannabe at the other end of her section threw his arms out wide with a could-you-be-more-stupid? look on his face. “We gonna get those drinks or what?” The two idiots seated next to him at the small circular table laughed and slapped him on the shoulder in … Read more »

He stepped under a streetlight for a brief … Read more »

All things considered, she looked pretty good for a six-year old corpse.

Katherine Meyer checked her reflection in the bathroom mirror one last time and smoothed a few wild strands of hair back from her face. The black slacks and matching jacket were perfect, not one thing about them the slightest bit memorable. No one glancing her direction tonight would ever see anything other than
the professional assistant … Read more »

Speaking of HEAT and Backstory…

It’s quite ironic I was talking about the backstory for STOLEN HEAT yesterday. This review of HEAT just went up today, and I couldn’t be more tickled at what the reviewer had to say not only about the book but about my characters and their “past relationship”. (And the fact she launched a whole new feature on her blog with my book!) I forwarded the review link to my CP who emailed me and said, “I love the way she describes it in her own words, but they end up being just how you were thinking when you Read more »
