Get Ready for Hockey Holidays!

It's November! And while I usually refuse to celebrate the holidays until after Thanksgiving (which is my favorite of the US holidays, and I think it's truly underappreciated!)—but this year is different. Why? Because 'this the season for Hockey Holidays!

He's sooo pretttyyyy...

I've joined a team of hockey romance authors to bring you this epic anthology. And my contribution is "Christmas Crosscheck," which tells the tale of Georgiana and Bryan's first Christmas together. And—spoiler alert!—there's a proposal. You'll have to read it find out the rest!


The anthology, for which all proceeds will be donated to a hockey charity, will release on November 13, so there's still plenty of time to pre-order to make sure you get this book on your eReader ASAP on release day!

And we'll be celebrating like crazy next week. First up, on the 13th, we'll be in the L. Woods PR Romance Room starting at 7. And then the party continues on the 14th in the Reader's Lounge. If you're not already in these Facebook groups, you're gonna wanna join so you can party with us!



It's been a hard week here in Pittsburgh. I was in Squirrel Hill Saturday morning at the time of the Tree of Life congregation shooting, and I've been taking it especially hard. I've had different friends living in the area throughout the years, and my days and nights there were always fun. The best part about Squirrel Hill is the diversity and open-mindedness. I hope we never lose that.

It's not easy choosing to set aside the heartbreak and look toward the good. But it is a choice to celebrate all the good coming down the pipeline, including this anthology.

I'll still need time to grieve and get over this, but we are Pittsburgh Strong, and steel is stronger than hate.

My 2020 Vision

What am I doing writing about 2020 when we’re already one week into February? Well, y’all, let me tell just how crazy everything has been lately! Let me just recap my January for you: On Friday, January 3rd, I had my on-site interview with a company down in Pittsburgh for an open position. On Tuesday, January 7th, I got the offer from HR that, pending a satisfactory background check and drug test, I was hired. On Friday, January 10th, I got the call from the hiring manager that I cleared everything, and we scheduled my first day of work. On Monday, January 13th, I turned in my two-weeks notice at my now former job. And on Tuesday, January 28th, I began my first day of work in downtown Pittsburgh. As you can see from that list, this all happened so fast . My last two weeks at my prior job were spent trying to get the entire  office organized and everyone informed on my responsibilities and what they’d have to take over. After 11 years, 7 months there, the list was long. Bu

Kissing 2018 Goodbye / Bring It On, 2019!

Listen. New Years always  freaks me out. Any occasion that encourages me to look back at the past while simultaneously looking toward the future is just... super stressful. I've said it before (I say it at the end of every year!) that December is crazy between work and the holidays and social engagements. My natural tendency is to think about all the things I didn't  do and chalk it up as failing to accomplish my goals. As I reflected on my 2018, I went back to read last year's blog post about my 2018 resolutions, and I kept it simple last year: rein in my spending. And, in some aspects, I accomplished that. I cut down on ordering pizza when I felt too lazy to cook, I didn't add (very much) to my TBR pile by buying books I knew I wouldn't immediately start reading, and I only saw a handful of movies in the theatre (of course I made exceptions for Marvel movies, and my mom and I went to see Book Club  because it looked too good). But I totally fell flat on the w

If April Showers Bring May Flowers, Do May Flowers Bring June Bugs?

Y'all. May was a crazy month. I had so much fun in Niagara Falls and Gettysburg, attending those two author events (Romancing the Falls and Rockin' Romance Readers, respectively). Mama J came with me, and we had a blast hanging out with  Lisa B. Kamps  again, meeting Christine and Victoria of Sweet & Sassy Reads , and loading up our shelves with books by new-to-us authors! Oh yeah, and I had a book come out, too. :) So even though May was awesome, I'm a little bit glad it's over. I'm still celebrating my latest release, but I'm also getting to work on what's to come. Things I'm up to: Proofing the paperback copy of  Dump and Chase  before announcing that paperbacks are for sale! Working on getting the paperback for  "Christmas Crosscheck"  up and hopefully available for pre-order (I hear it's kind of complicated; for those in the know, Amazon changed their paperback process and I hear some people aren't able to have pre
