Plus I've resurrected my Romantic Suspense series, based in northern New Mexico, on a ranch where veterans can ease themselves back into society. Boy has my writing changed! I'm still writing tough heroines who are dealing with a less than perfect pass, and heroes who are willing to do whatever it takes to keep them safe, and to convince them they are loved. (less)

“You must be excessively hungry, Mr. Merritt,” she said
graciously. Mademoiselle would have been so proud of her.
“Perhaps you are not a morning person?”
He smiled, finally bringing his devastating sky blue
morning gaze fully upon her face.
“I thought perhaps if I filled my mouth with biscuits, I
might keep my foot out of it for a while.”
Mona Karel

“After a long pause in which he took the time to blink several times, he asked, "You named your breasts?"

I turned my back to him with a shrug. "I named my ovaries, too, but they don't get out as much.”
Darynda Jones, First Grave on the Right

“Readers have the right to say whatever the fuck they want about a book. Period. They have that right. If they hate the book because the MC says the word “delicious” and the reader believes it’s the Devil’s word and only evil people use it, they can shout from the rooftops “This book is shit and don’t read it” if they want. If they want to write a review entirely about how much they hate the cover, they can if they want. If they want to make their review all about how their dog Foot Foot especially loved to pee on that particular book, they can."

[Blog entry, January 9, 2012]”

“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.”

“Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?'
Jace said, "Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself."
..."At least," she said, "you don't have to worry about rejection, Jace Wayland."
"Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting.”
