Breathe Me to Life in the Once Upon A Twisted Time box set has been out for a little over a week now. It’s now available on Kindle Unlimited, so if you have a KU membership and have been waiting for it to switch over…your wait is over. 😉
So, what have I been doing since release day? There is no rest for the weary, wicked, or authors. I’ve been working on Celine and Coipeail’s story. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a shortish story, but who knows…characters sometimes throw you for a loop and insist certain events that weren’t initially planned happen. I’ve also agreed to do a short story anthology…and there may be another project in the works…I’ve also agreed to do an anthology that isn’t going to be released until next year. In other words, I’ve been presented with a writing challenge that will not only push me, but will introduce my writing to different audiences. Of course I answered that challenge with a “yes”. Pray for me and my sanity. I promise to let you all know what is going on with these other projects as they come up.
In the meantime…I need to get back to Coipeail and Celine.
Until next week…Happy Reading!

Spring has finally sprung in my neck of the woods. Did I tell you that Spring is my favorite time of the year. Everything is fresh and new, brimming with the promise of new life, and eager to bring color to a landscape that was brown or bare.
That promise of blooming beauty, brings pollen with it, which brings itchy, watery eyes and lots of sneezing. Yay! Yes…Mother Nature has a wicked sense of humor. She is going to show you all the pretties…but there is a payment for your enjoyment. It reminds me of that scene in one of the Harry Potter movies when Ron is trying to interpret the leaves at the bottom of Harry’s cup…”You’re going to suffer, but you’re going to be happy for it.” lol. This is what Spring is for me. Which when you think about it, in a convoluted kind of way, that could be said about writing, editing, and publishing a book. You’re going to suffer through the process…but you’re going to be happy once it’s all done.
Once Upon A Twisted Time is springing forth on Tuesday, May 8th. I hope you will consider buying it for your reading pleasure. If you hop over to my newsletter, you can see the covers and read the blurbs of the stories included in the set. You just may find at least one story you’re willing you just have to read. I hope one of them is mine. 😉
Until next week…Happy Reading!
It’s a bright, beautiful morning…well, not really. Daylight Saving Time is in full effect, so it’s still dark, but I’m hoping it’s going to be a sunny day. I saw my first robin yesterday. A sure sign that Winter is on the verge of being kicked to the curb. What signs of Spring do you look for?
Soooo….I thought I’d share the blurb for my story in the fairytale boxset due to come out in May.
Ailsa was biding her time when the call of the music floating on the wings of the night’s wind led her to a moonlit glen and another world.
Kellan, Prince of the Fae Court, was tired and bored with things as they were until a young woman not only sparked his interest but his desire to finally claim a mate.
Two souls find in each other a connection unlike any other.
A chance encounter brought them together. A dream created a bond. Will the jealousy of one who was scorned tear them apart? Or will love’s kiss breathe life into a sleeping beauty?
From the days of old, with the twist of new, these fairytales are just for you.
Drawing from a well of myth and legend, each of these 16 USA Today and NYT Best Selling Authors, has put their own twist on a story from childhood.
Modernized tales of love, war, oaths, and curses, uncover the secrets in Once Upon a Twisted Time. We promise you a Happily Ever After…
You can pre-order your copy for only $0.99.
I’m going to be honest…I am exhausted. The the winter crud has struck again and sleeping sitting up is not as easy to do at night as it is when you’re sitting on your couch watching tv.
Sooooo….instead of whining about how miserable I feel, I’m going to give you a little snippet from Breathe Me to Life, my contribution to the soon to be released but available for pre-order for only 99 pennies.

Breathe Me to Life Snippet
A year after the veil between the Fae and human realms fell, she’d started seeing Kellan in her dreams. Only there did she know the feel of his hands against her skin, the never satisfying hunger for his kiss, the taste of his sweat, and the musky scent of their bodies made as they rose to the pinnacle of ecstasy and shattered together. There she knew the feel of his arms holding her tightly against his sweat-drenched body, as she reluctantly fell into an exhausted sleep, just to wake to an empty room and bed, with only the phantom touch of him upon her skin. Those nightly visits came to an abrupt five days ago. Her heart ached at the pang of loss even as her brain railed at his disappearance without out a word of goodbye. In the light of day, she knew they were just dreams. What she shared with Kellan in the recesses of her sleeping mind was not real. But it felt like it was, or had been.
The sound of a throat clearing brought Ailsa out of her out of her reverie. Looking up, her breath caught in her throat. Before her was Kellan dressed in black leather pants that hugged hips and muscular legs like a second skin. A white tunic tucked into his waistband with a V at the neckline offered a teasing glimpse of the chest it covered. The man who had been her dream lover and ruined any attraction to other men was now standing in front of her. Mouth open, she stood staring at him in shocked surprise. A smirk tipped up one corner of his full lips.
