I’ve just returned from a visit to one of my favorite places, Maine! Well, Portland, Maine that is.

I was lucky to attend the Maine Romance Writers annual retreat, and to get to give a workshop titled REDEEMING DESPICABLE CHARACTERS. The workshop was well received and the weekend retreat was really fun and informative. IMG_3321


I especially liked the workshops on self-editing and writing the male point of view. I met lots of great ladies and got to talk with a few I already know. Had some good laughs with fellow Harlequin author Terri Brisbin (Historical line) and Luanna Stewart from Entangled.

This is the picture everyone liked the most from my presentation. Sexiest of allI wonder why?

The coordinator, Marianne Rice, bent over backwards to make everyone happy, and she did a phenomenal job! IMG_3324


What more can a lady ask from an author retreat, you may ask?


Well how about this?

And what about this? IMG_3365IMG_3369IMG_3353







New York isn’t the only place with a flat iron building!

Portland, Maine at its best.



I’m also super excited that today is release day for my contribution to the Hollywood Hills Clinic series – HIS PREGNANT SLEEPING BEAUTY is book #6.  I hope you’ll consider reading it.


Until next time, make it a great one!
