Brief #history on #ValentinesDay

Today I’m bringing you a mini history lesson! Time for a pop quiz. Do you know the history of Valentine’s Day?

I remember making my own valentines for friends and family when I was a child. I’m not sure many people do that much any longer. It is so easy to just drive … Continue reading

It had said that Midnight Heat was my newest release and that came out January of last year! Oops. Updating my website was toward the top of my list of New Years Resolutions. It feels good to say I can already check that off my list and it isn’t even the end of January yet. I switched to the Parabola theme and love my new slider. I always wanted … Continue reading

My Goals for 2015 #newyears #resolutions

It was no different when I wrote In Too Deep, book 1 of my Tybee Island Shifters. I knew Drake Randolph, the alpha, and Emma, the sweet human, would find a happy every … Continue reading
