When I have a new release I like to write about my inspiration for the story. It is a question that comes up all the time so I make sure I have an answer ready. Alpha’s Voodoo is my first historical paranormal romance, and it wasn’t inspired by reading a historical account. Magic is to blame.

Like many children, when I was growing up I went through a magic phase. I bought a deck of cards and other cheap tricks and tried to learn how to preform them. I think I drove my family crazy. Magic has always fascinated me.

I got burnt out with my historical romances. I decided rather impulsively that I wanted my next story to be a bit different. Why not… Continue reading

Banshee_Seduction-Diane_Saxon-500x800Sweet, shy librarian Ginny has a problem. Whenever passion strikes, so do the weeping, wailing voices in her head. Being half banshee, she’s already run screaming from the underworld and her female relatives, believing love will find a way with patience and faith on planet Earth.

The trouble is, humans just aren’t man enough, and every time Ginny shows interest in a male, she makes him bleed. It’s going to take more than just a simple human being to get past Ginny’s defenses.

Matthew, “The Dane,” fullback for the New York Chameleons, knows the moment he meets the little fireball that she’s his mate. For two hundred years he and his dragon have waited for a female capable of setting their world on fire. Problem… Continue reading

Did you know every minute in the United States, a woman dies from heart disease, stroke or another form of cardiovascular disease (CVD)? (Source: American Heart Association,


Every. Minute.


According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death for African American and white women in the US. I could go on and on about statistics, but I won’t. What I will do is encourage all of you to be aware of the symptoms. The American Heart Association offers great information to get you started. Click here for more info.


Cardiovascular disease runs in my family. More than that, I’ve felt the pain of losing a loved one to this dreaded and deadly disease. One of… Continue reading

Thank you so much for having me, ladies!

I’m so excited to share with you all my new contemporary romance. Right up until last week, I was hashing out the genre of The Road Leads Back. My editor insisted it is women’s fiction. I was certain it is romance. We went back and forth. Finally, I embraced the women’s fiction aspect.

I joined a women’s fiction group. I networked. I plotted and planned. And then they told me, “Oh, no. This is romance.”

Ahhh!! Hair pulling, teeth gnawing frustration commenced.

Then I decided it doesn’t really matter does it? It’s contemporary. It’s romantic.

And it’s now available.

Yes!!! My contemporary romantic women’s fiction hybrid of a story is now available.
So whether you enjoy… Continue reading

The Wyatt brothers trilogy is about three men and the women who make their lives complete. Of course, it wouldn’t be New Adult without some angst and drama, so I have the brothers emerging from a very dysfunctional past and grasping at better lives and even love.


Blind Passion_500x750At first I found myself coming at this series much more from the female POV. You’ll notice the first chapters of Blind Passion are from Leah’s viewpoint as she negotiates her freedom from her… Continue reading
