Hello Sinners!

I'm home from New York City with the best souvenir I could ask for -- a shiny new RITA statue for THE SAINT, Best Erotic Romance from the Romance Writers of America.

It might surprise people to know that, of all the things in the universe, the question I get asked most often is about love. Around 98% of my clients -- yes, really! -- want to know where their relationship is going, or are trying to manifest a new one.

The sun is not mysterious enough
To rate writing about
Moon mystique is endlessly
Fascinating
Appearing in the darkness
Drawing our blood, tides

Just there
Even if it seems invisible
