About this author

Reader Profile: First and foremost, I am a reader. From the moment I could hold a book, I've been fascinated with the written word. I enjoy almost everything, but lean toward romantic-suspense and magical realism. If you're looking for poor reviews, you won't find them here. The reason...life's too short to read bad books. If a book isn't at least three stars halfway through, I stop reading, and therefore, don't feel as though I have the right to review it. That's my policy! Please don't send me requests, though. If you are one of my cyber friends, I will eventually find you. :)

Author Profile: A writer of modern-day fairy tales, I write stories that overflow with romance, mystery, suspense, a hint of paranormal sometimes, and of course, tra

I'm looking for Amazon's explanation right now. I tried to have them send an email to all owners of the eBook set, but they refused. I've received updates on other books for years, so I assumed when I updated a new edition, they would inform readers. Evidently, that's not the case. They'll only notify readers when there's an updated book due to errors.

I'll be back shortly with their instructions. It's actually pretty easy, but you as the Kindle owner have to request your book be updated. :)(less)

It may sound like a simple answer;but in my case, it's because I want you to read it.
In general, authors write because they love writing. Most of us didn’t just decide in college that this was ourcareer choice; we’ve been writing as long as we could hold a pen.
We were great pen pals, kept diaries, didn’t mind writing our grandmothers a thank you note, passed messages back and forth in school,... Read more of this blog post »

Carmen DeSousa is 46% done with The Best Medicine: ...and I'm loving every second of it! OMG! Tracy Brogan cracks me up. If you've ever been on a cruddy date, you will love this book. I don't -- can't -- write chick lit. I'm too serious, I guess, so I write romantic-suspense novels. Maybe that's why I love to just sit back and enjoy a funny novel. And even though I enjoyed the first book set in Bell Harbor...so far, this one exceeds it. Full review when I finish.

Oh, and sorry it took so long to reply; I just found this section of comments today. Now I must go apologize to people who left comments in the last year. I do see my mailbox though. Have a great day!

I think it means you're a realist! Most of by books usually start with a tragedy, and though I usually have some form a tragedy in the end, I will always leave you with something to smile about. I books that make me happy and sad, because it's real. Mix that with a little make believe, and I'm all in. So you're not alone, my friend. And that is why Sparks sells so many books, but I'm doing my darndest to catch up to him. Wish me luck! :)
