Happy (Book) Birthday to Me!

Eight years ago today, I brought my son home from the hospital. Here’s one of my favorite shots of that day.

Seven years later (one year ago today), I hit the “publish” button on my first novel, Forever a Bridesmaid, and rushed out the door to take my son to swim class. Later that night, just before midnight, I got to see my listing come up. One of the biggest thrills of my life.

To celebrate my first anniversary, I’ve put three of my books on sale for 99 cents, just for today. So, fill up your e-reader and scoop up some gifts for all your friends.

In this first year of publishing, I published a total of 10 books (3 full-length novels and 7 novellas). In addition to that, I’ve got one boxed set, three audiobooks, and, just this week, agreed to have Forever a Bridesmaid translated into Spanish.

Thanks to the support of my wonderful readers, I won a contract with my second novel, The Lost Art of Second Chances, and officially became a hybrid author. I am the luckiest author in the world.

In the next year, I’ve got five more Cupid’s Coffeeshop novellas, two novellas in two different anthology boxed sets, the final novel in my Bridesmaid’s trilogy, several more boxed sets, and audiobooks to come. It’s going to be a busy year. Stick around for the ride!


Cupid's Coffeeshop

Are you ready for some Fireworks Frappe?

Happy release day! Fireworks Frappe, the seventh book in the Cupid’s Coffeeshop series, is available today. I’m delighted to share Ava and Duncan’s story with you. Ava is Amy Lane’s twin sister. Longtime readers might remember Amy from the first book in the Cupid’s Coffeeshop series, Java Frost. Amy and Ben are tying the knot and Ava is home to do maid of honor duties.


When Ava was a teenager, she couldn’t wait to leave Ashford Falls for the bright lights of New York City. Now, she’s just lost her high powered career and come home to lick her wounds. Since she’s identical to her sister, I imagine Ava looking  just like Amy Schumer and Amy Poehler.

When she walks into Cupid’s Coffeeshop, she runs into her high school boyfriend, Duncan Knight. Duncan looks like Jensen Ackles, with hazel eyes. How handsome is he? I’ve never written a firefighter hero before but Duncan came complete with a whole crew of sexy characters to write about. So, now I’ve got a whole second series to set in Ashford Falls–just need time to write it! 🙂



Ten years ago, he stayed. Ava left. Though he’s risen to second in command at the Ashford Falls fire station, Duncan’s never gotten over Ava. Can they resurrect their love from the ashes of their dreams? Find out in Fireworks Frappe.


I also made my first ever book trailer for Fireworks Frappe. So fun! Check it out!

I’m super busy with the release and planning my (book) birthday celebration for the end of this month. I can’t believe it’s been a year already! Keep your eye out for a new pre-order for Pumpkin Spice, the tenth Cupid’s Coffeeshop book, and my first ever audiobook announcement.
