I just finished the first draft of the first book in a new series. Don’t worry, The 7 Deadly Sins will still be arriving on time—with the exception of The Sanctity of Sloth. The original release date of this book was at the end of August. For an exciting reason I’m not at liberty to divulge, it will be a little late. I’ll keep you posted.
The Writer's Life
Everything was new.
I’d never been to Texas before. I’d never met my publisher before. I was teaching two workshops I’d never taught before. You get the idea.
The first thing I did upon arriving was what most of us do after a long flight and ride from the airport. I asked where the restrooms were. Someone pointed the way. [Read more…] about Walking into the Men’s Room

I traded novels with Kaira Rouda at the Ladies of Intrigue meeting this past October.
She and I were on a panel of thriller authors together. The more I heard about her book, and her perspective, the more I thought we were kindred spirits. I was right.
If you enjoyed A Margin of Lust, I think you’ll love Kaira’s latest novel. It’s a true domestic suspense story.
The book is told from the point of view of Paul Strom, loving husband, model family man, and killer advertising executive. He’s taking his wife away for a romantic weekend in the country and is planning the Best Day Ever.
I’m not going to give any spoilers here, just suffice to say the story layers peel away like the layers of an onion. The farther in you go the more uncomfortable you’ll be. It’s written in true Alfred Hitchcock fashion with that subtle, but increasingly disturbing narrative style that ropes me in.
And, bonus, Kaira is a sweet and lovely woman. It’s always the nice ones who have the most demented imaginations!
I thoroughly enjoyed losing sleep over this one. Give it a read, and let me know what you think.
