Hard to believe it’s been so long since I posted. The good news is I’ve busily had my nose to the grind working on Frozen Sky 3. Getting close! In other good news, super genius Jasper Schreurs has also been a busy bee. Here is a sneak peek at his upcoming artwork for FS3. ;)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I've read several Wodehouse books at this point, including the Psmith series up to this entry, and this has to be the strangest one I've encountered so far. Wodehouse shows a darker edge than usual as the unflappable Psmith encounters th... Read more of this blog post »

I have been lucky enough to count five years of writing MM Romance and along those five years I have seen quite a lot.

I probably shouldn't write this, because it's very early days yet, but I've started jotting down notes for my anti-romance story. It won't be a novel, it will be really short, but I'm thinking of getting a cover for it and selling it for ninety-nine cents, with part of the proceeds going to an or...

Tigers on the Run originally started as a novella called The Tales of Jasper Brunswick. This was meant to be a filler release between books, to ease me back into writing on the whole.

I guess this means someone's nemesis is going to play a pretty big role in this story.
