The Story Behind the Story

on January 16, 2018

BREAKING POINT is out in two weeks! I’m really excited about this book for several reasons. 1) The cover. I LOVE this cover. It hits all the right spots for me. It’s suspenseful, big, different, and I think it stands out in a sea of other great thriller and suspense covers. 2) I introduce a new character who is one of my favorites … she’s dark, she’s dangerous, she’s different from most of my characters. I love Bella Caruso, and hope you do, too. 3) BREAKING POINT tackles a difficult subject — human trafficking — but through Bella’s eyes, I… Read More

Another One Bites the Dust …

on July 7, 2017

Well, that sounds pessimistic! Truly, I’m jumping up and down for joy (well, sagging tired in my chair) because I’m DONE with BREAKING POINT. I sent the draft off to my editor at the same time I lamented my miserable process. I love my muse, but she’s a total bitch. It took me more than two full months to write the first 85,000 words of BREAKING POINT. And 3 days to write the last 25,000+ words. I have had some 10K+ days, but they are few and far between and NEVER two in a row. In fact, usually when I… Read More
