rone-badge-winner-gold-2016AMAZING NEWS! Lorelei’s Lyric won a RONE award from InD’Tale Magazine, Paranormal Category! Thank you so much to this wonderful magazine, to the staff, and to the reviewers, for being such advocates for Independent and Small Published authors. I thoroughly enjoyed the 2016 InD’Scribe conference. From the workshops to the social events (e.g. I got to dress up like a mermaid at the costume ball and dance, dance, dance) to the RONE Awards gala, it was a wonderful Con that I plan to attend in the future!


Here are some pictures! Me with authors Mary B Rose and M Pepper Langlinais, plus an EPIC photobomb by author Catherine Bybee!




And at the Enchanted Ball with a hot, hunky pirate!


Not to mention a supercool (and maybe a little scary) dragon!


Of course, he’s a little more friendly with the lights on (see below).



Take home message from the Con? Write the next book! I’ve taken that message to heart, dear readers, and will be writing more, more, MORE!


New Releases! Coming Soon!slide1

MakingWaves_SEG 0.5_FinalECvr_RGB350dpiFor disgruntled Celtic sea god MacLir, nothing beats the solace of Atlantic waves and mortal women. Disguised as captain of the luxury cruise ship Wave Sweeper, he gets his fill of both.

Until babysitting duties get in the way.

MacLir is charged with ferrying a pair of troublesome Rhinemaidens to the Americas, giving the mermaids their first taste of freedom. All he has to do is deliver them safely to their chaperone in the New World. Easy, right?

Unfortunately, Lorelei and Ilsa have a lust for adventure and a knack for causing problems. From full fins moonlight swims to bacchanal parties crashed by nymphs and satyrs, Captain MacLir has his hands full. But when the mermaids conspire to reunite MacLir with his long lost love, the sea goddess Calypso, they set off a storm fueled by old wounds and passionate desires.

Will love calm the waves, or will all on board perish in a fearsome maelstrom?
