Time for the Insecure Writers Support Group, when we vent our troubles and encourage each other in this crazy thing called writing. I appreciate Alex Cavanaugh for his brainchild! Please join us if you dare.
How's your work-in-progress coming along? I started writing the sequel to my college volleyball romance Blocked. This one's titled Aced, and features the romance between a 24-year-old Mexican American med student and a 22-year-old African-American volleyball star.
I'm rather conflict averse, but I find myself exploring some controversial topics in these novels. Blocked battles political differences, and Aced explores racial differences. Though I feel uncomfortable with conflict, discussing opposing points of view can be an enlightening experience in real life. I hope to offer a balanced take on touchy subjects in my writing.
Does your first draft feel like utter crap sometimes? I try to trudge through but writing can feel so difficult some days!
Congrats to my pub sister Debra Anastasia for the success of her crazy-ass comedy Fire Down Below! She has the wildest, dirtiest sense of whack ball humor!

Happy March! I'm excited the days are getting longer--nothing cheers me up more than leaving work and playing in the daylight.
In the mood for some romantic suspense? Simon & Schuster has slashed the price of With Good Behavior (The Conduct Series #1) for a limited time. Get your Mafia psychology prison love story for only $.99! The Conduct Series is a complete trilogy.
In a world gripped by organized crime, family dysfunction, and dim hopes of redemption, can true love persevere? For Sophie Taylor, a beautiful psychologist who lost everything when she violated an ethical boundary, and Grant Madsen, a handsome naval officer who sacrificed everything to protect a loved one, finding that love may carry an unbearable cost.
Starting their lives over in Chicago, both are fighting influences from their family and running as fast as they can to escape the past. When their paths cross outside the parole officer's door, the attraction is instantaneous. But a hidden connection may not only shatter their fledgling love, but prove deadly to them both.
