M.J. O'Shea's Blog

February 24, 2016


Hey There!!

I’ve had a busy month (or so) since I last blogged! I’ve been working on a lot of projects both writing as MJ and not!

One of the things I’ve been working on setting up (or reviving) is my old Salad Gourmet blog. I moved my old recipes to a new, easier to read format, started a facebook page, and am getting ramped up to start adding new recipes! They’ll be mostly healthy, a lot of family favorites, and maybe a sneaky treat here and there. Eventually The Salad Gourmet — which is me and my mom writing together– will publish some books of recipes and guidelines and eventually some cooking videos as well:) It’s a fun project if you want to check it out —



Facebook Page


In more normal MJ type news I’ve been working away on a few books —

A Little Bite of Magic will come back to me in a month or so when I get the contract back. It will have a new cover and be available on the usual distribution sites.

Pawsitively In Love  Is coming out next week (yay!!!) That one is already up on Amazon and at the moment, I’m working on a blog tour for that so check out blogs starting next week for info and excerpts.

Later this spring, I’ll be releasing a companion book to A Little Bite of Magic, called A Little Taste of Magic. There will be cooking and witches and definitely some magic:) I’ll put out some excerpts here and in my newsletter!

That’s all for now folks!!

When I was planning The Millionaire Upstairs, I knew I wanted it to take place in some fabulous settings that might be a bit unrealistic for us normal folks

I figured it was past time to reinstate an old tradition! Back when Piper and I used to run Babes in Boyland, Music Monday was one of our staples (along with tattooo tuesdays but I digress…)

Since today is rainy and yucky in Washington, which it will be until summer basically haha, I decided to go for peppy two of the songs I tend to bop around the house to.

First one from one of my all time favorite bands:) The lyrics are a little bitter but if you ignore that it just sounds like summer


Second is a bit newer and definitely more pop…but also really fun to dance to. Makes doing dishes go a bit faster for sure!


That’s all for me today! I’m off to work on writing:) Have a great Monday!

Hey there everyone  

This is the first real blog post on my new and (hopefully) improved website:) I’ve been pretty busy the last month or so visiting with Poppy Dennison and Charlie Cochet, visiting family in California, and now I’m home and getting back to work! You can always check my brand new Current Projects page if you want to know what I’m working on!


I’m getting ready for my next book, The Millionaire Upstairs to come out January 1st:) One of the first new Dreamspinner babies of the year and the first of the new line called Dreamspun Desires. I’m super excited for these ones. They’ll be the size and length of a category romance and feature lots of tropey fun — millionaires, cowboys, cops, tycoons, rock stars, movie stars, and royalty — you name it, I’m sure a Dreamspinner author is cooking it up as we speak
