I’ve sat on this news for several months while things got hashed out–legal contracts take some time to negotiate and get sorted out–but I can finally announce my exciting news to the world!

Are you coming to see me in the UK??? READ ALL THREE PARTS! 1. If you want to purchase books from me to sign, you must preorder them. Shipping expenses are very high so I don’t want to ship books that I don’t sell or even worse, not have enough books to sell by the time I get to Cardiff. The only way I know to make sure everyone gets the books they want is to have you preorder them. You can preorder them from me OR you can purchase them yourself. They are available on Amazon and last time I checked, Forbidden Planet in London has...

ROSE AND HELENA SAVE CHRISTMAS is  here! Jana Deleon and I share a lot of readers. We’ve both planted things about each other in our books, and readers have loved it. So we thought it would be fun to collaborate on a novella together. The result is ROSE AND HELENA SAVE CHRISTMAS! If you’ve read THIRTY-THREE AND A HALF SHENANIGANS, you know that Mason gave Rose an early Christmas gift–a trip to New Orleans with her best friend Neely Kate.
