The second thing I'm working on is the 3rd book in the Souls in Bondage series. And I'm working to revise the middle part of Out of the Pocket, my award winning manuscript and sequel to Scrambling. I may also have an idea for a short story that might fit the 2nd RWA anthology, if they'd have me again. ;)(less)
Lex Valentine Yes. I have Ray's story started but I've just not been in a stable situation long enough to finish it.

Lex Valentine, Christmas Hookup

“Micah snorted. “Yes. But I’m a growing boy. I’m always hungry.”

“You’re twenty-six years old. I think you’ve grown all you’re going to,” Nick said with a chuckle.

Micah walked over to the stove and looked down into the pot of stew Nick was stirring.

“There’s a part of me that always grows when I’m close to you, sir.”

Nick’s chuckles turned to a laugh. “You’re incorrigible!”
