Coughing, calculating, and celebrating a NEW BOOK!

Things you should probably know…

1. I’ve had the plague for a week now and my cough is now annoying the dog. I’m pretty sure I’m going to live, but the dog may run away from home.

2. I’ve also had a big-ish work project that I’m trying to finish up…and that requires math, which is hard.

3. I also need to fix a synopsis and come up with a new one this weekend, but what’s really important is…

 I HAVE A NEW BOOK OUT TODAY!!! A Minute on the Lips can be yours at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Harlequin, and…I’ll bring it by your house if you’ll put up the protective cough bubble for me! Here’s the link with all the pertinents. A MINUTE ON THE LIPS.

A Minute on the Lips (February 1, 2014, Harlequin Heartwarming)

A Minute on the Lips

There are no secrets in Tall Pines… 

Sheriff Andrea Jackson can’t afford to become the subject of small-town gossip. With an election coming up and her job on the line, public opinion is crucial. That means keeping her distance from newspaper editor Mark Taylor.

Effortlessly handsome and dangerously charming, Mark is hard to resist, but his sudden interest makes Andi wonder if his dinner invitations are for business or pleasure. Andi has to admit she could use his help in solving a local theft, but working with Mark would make her the talk of the town, or worse…it could land her on the front page.

Sweet (clean) romance from Harlequin Heartwarming! Print copies available through, ebooks at online sellers.
