Sacred Treasures? What the heck are those?

Sacred Treasures? What the heck are those?

My newest novel (which launches on Wednesday, November 16!) is titled Circle of Nine – Sacred Treasures. It’s the final installment in what turned into the three-book Circle of Nine series. But what the heck are these treasures and what made them so sacred? Let me tell you . .

Two Down, Two to Go—Book Festivals & Conferences

Did you know that we are smack dab in the middle of the fall book festival and writing conference season! Yes, that’s a thing—but I didn’t know it until I made writing my primary profession. I was thrilled to be a guest author at the Sheboygan Children’s Book Fest—especially when they were kicking off their new TEEN BOOK FEST. What a blast!

August Reads

I am a huge Outlander fan—and not just because the Starz series is crazy great, I have read all of the immense books by Diana Gabaldon, too. So, I was feeling a wee bit dowie (that’s sad for you non-Scots out there) when the most recent season ended. I found myself aimlessly scrolling through my Facebook feed when BAM! an advertisement popped up.

July Reads

July Reads

It seems that I only have two books to share with you from my July reading. How is that possible? Oh, yeah. I was finishing writing the rough draft of my current novel. I did read one unpublished novel for a writer friend. (It’s really, really great, but I can’t talk about it yet!) And I read two Celtic mythology books for research, but those are likely not going to be of general interest to you all.

June Reads

I hit the local library for my June reads . . . I love to buy books and I buy a lot of them. I would never say too many, but I do have a bin of books in my closet waiting for me. We will not talk about the size of this bin—that is irrelevant (at least to me, possibly not to my husband). Anyway, in June I decided to save a few shekels and request some books from the library and utilize the daily bargains from Bookbub. 

May Reads

May Reads

I am finally recapping the books I read in May! There were a lot of dead bodies in my May reading. A LOT! The murder and mayhem began with Prime Time by Hank Phillippi Ryan, definitely continued with A Winsome Murder by James DeVita and The Obsession by Nora Roberts, and finished up with just two in The Flood Girls by Richard Fifield.

April Reads

April Reads

Strangely enough, three out of the five books I read in April were set in Door County, Wisconsin, and they were all very good stories, but that is definitely where the similarities end.

Celebrating Ostara with a Book Release

Celebrating Ostara with a Book Release

Growing up on a farm and in a climate with very distinct seasonal changes, I had always been aware of the rhythms of the earth as we progressed through the year--particularly when what often seemed like the never-ending winter finally gave way to spring and the first good-smelling days had us cracking open the windows and shedding our winter coats.
