With one grown son and living in San Diego, fall is pretty much a non-event until November when I get out my sweaters and think about Thanksgiving. Same for my writing schedule though I do lose time to write with the holidays.
The two things I'm looking forward to: In October, I hope to have a new puppy (I lost my Golden in July at 16 years and this time I am looking for a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon.) In early November, I will have out a new book, a holiday story, A Secret Scottish Christmas.

But this month, I have out a new boxed set for the award-winning Medieval Warriors series. Find it here!
“This series captures the Medieval era perfectly, creating the true sensation of traveling back in time to experience epic, riveting love stories that ignite the imagination. Beautifully written, perfectly paced and action-packed with passionate love affairs... What more can you ask?”
— The Book Review
Since the children have flown the coop, I don't have to hit all the the back to school stores. (I do miss picking up notebooks and fun paper supplies.) But fall means two things: 1) closing the cabin and 2) University of Minnesota Football. SKI-U-MAH!
It's always sad to close the cabin. The dock needs to be hauled in along with the jet ski and boat lifts. And of course, all the food needs to come out. But fall does mean we can head to University of Minnesota, my alma mater, football games. I love sitting in the stands on beautiful sunny autumn days. NOT so thrilled in November, when it gets terribly cold!
But this fall I will be buckling down to work on the revisions for Book 6 of the FITZGERALD HOUSE series -- TO CATCH A THIEF due Sept. 15th. And then I will submit POETIC JUSTICE due Sept. 30th.
Book 5 - UNDERCOVER WITH THE HEIRESS has been getting great reviews. I hope you've had a chance to check it out. Buy links can be found HERE.
But to a known Lothario like him, how will Lane ever measure up in the bedroom? With just one disastrous sexual encounter to her name, Lane knows she needs help in that department, and fast – before David loses interest.
So when Adam, her best mate’s brother (with his own impressive reputation), agrees to her bizarre proposal, she’s ready to learn everything he has to offer about how to please a guy in bed. But as she soon discovers, there is no textbook for love…
Sarah’s brother Adam has been educating her best friend Lane in the arts of the Kama Sutra for weeks, all in the pursuit of Lane’s real target, David Bennet. So when Sarah finds herself alone with David at an exhibition, weeping over her own terrible dating history, they strike up a conversation. A budding artist, he wants to paint her, so she agrees in return for a guarantee that he’ll find her a relationship that can last more than three weeks (her rather dismal personal best).
She reassures herself that she isn’t betraying Lane. After all, Sarah wants marriage and 2.4 kids, and David has made it more than clear he will never want that. Plus he’s going to sleep with Lane any day now. Isn’t he?
Although summer is by far and away my favorite season because I am a heat freak and LOVE being warm!, September (which is often the precursor to fall) still holds the potential for warm Indian summer days in Minnesota and the chance for last picnics and outdoor get-togethers. I'm looking forward to sitting on my deck with paper and pen and fleshing out some story ideas that came to me on my recent vacation to Scotland.
While that's happening, I'll also be working on three other super-fun projects. My fifth "Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys" book should come out by Christmas or New Year. In November I'll be releasing "Missing By a Heartbeat"--my debut book with a wonderful group of writers who've created the Chandler County series. Watch for more on that.
I'm also starting work on a short short story for a fantastic anthology benefiting The PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Rider Relief Fun. E.E. and I will have lots more info about that to come, too!
Right now, if you haven't read my current novel "Betting on Paradise" I'd love for you to discover book four in the Seven Brides series. Then, when you're ready for slightly quicker fare, I have a Kindle Worlds novella "Going Zero to Sixty"(part of Erin Nicholas's Sapphire Falls series) also out now. I think you'll love both these stories!
Check out these two fun stories here:
