DYING SCREAM’S NEW LOOK!

Dying Scream landed in stores and online May 29th, with a brand new look. I hope you like the latest art as much as I do. I’m still so appreciative of the wonderful reception the book has received through the years, starting with national bestselling suspense author, Lisa Jackson, calling it “A twisted tale” and saying “I couldn’t put it down.” And a shout out, of course, to all the readers who have read and shared it with others. If you haven’t read it yet, I hope you’ll have a chance to enjoy it soon. Ready to enjoy an excerpt?

Happy St. Valentine’s Day

Image of red heart

It’s such a wonderful excuse to spend time thinking about people you love. For me that includes some of my favorite couples–real and fictional. Kate Hayden and Theo Mazur from my recent novel, THE LAST MOVE, are two I rooted for the entire time I was writing their story–even when it seemed impossible to work around their disparate lives. They’re that good for each other. Do you agree? If you haven’t read THE LAST MOVE, enter now for a chance to win a copy. I’ll look forward to hearing what you think.
