About Me

My photo
I grew up in Colorado at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, then lived in Denmark and traveled throughout Europe before coming back to Colorado. I have two adult sons, whom I cherish. I started my writing career as a columnist and investigative reporter and eventually became the first woman editor of two different papers. Along the way, my team and I won numerous state and several national awards, including the National Journalism Award for Public Service. In 2011, I was awarded the Keeper of the Flame Lifetime Achievement Award for Journalism. Now I write historical romance and contemporary romantic suspense.

June is National Audiobook Month — Fun events!

June is National Audiobook Month, and to celebrate AudioGals and Tantor Audio put together some fun events for romance listeners.

The first went live today. It’s an audio interview with me, Julie James, Anne Stuart and Jennifer Ashley talking about what it’s like to have our books published in audiobook format and what that process entails for us.

You can listen to that interview or download it by clicking here.

For those of you new audiobooks, Tantor has all of its titles in all of its formats priced at half off this month.

The next fun event will be an interview of me and actor/voice artist Kaleo Griffith, who very sexily narrates the I-Team series, talking about our collaboration on these books as well as the soon-to-be-released MacKinnon’s Rangers series, which Kaleo is currently recording.  (He must have boundless energy because he’s also in the midst of filming a movie.)

Don’t forget about the big RWA “Readers For Life” Literacy signing in Atlanta on July 17. I’ll be there. And on July 20, I’ll be having some kind of reader/listener get-together in Atlanta. All fans of the I-Team and MacKinnon’s Rangers are welcome to come and meet me and Kaleo, who will be there also. Some of you emailed me to let me know you wanted to be kept abreast of our plans. I’ve got your emails and will be in touch.

In other news:  I turned in a 467-page manuscript to New York this morning for Striking Distance, (I-Team #6). I still have the last chapter and the epilogue to write, but the bulk of the book is behind me — and closer to being in your hands. The released date is November 5. Mark your calendars!

I can’t believe I’m almost done with this book! I’m very excited to share it with you.
