When she’s not writing or working, Jeanette spends time with family, hikes, reads, makes decadent brownies, buys kille...more


So if you follow my twitter feed or my tumblr, you know I love me some Sleepy Hollow. And since Halloween is my favorite time of the year, I thought I'd give everyone who loves this holiday a gift. So head to my tumblr blog and check out my story, The Perils of Headless Dating, in which the Headless Horseman tries to woo a young lady with mixed results.

“Cormac smiled at her, but it was Finn who spoke. "Can I ask you a question?"

She turned to Burke who was smirking at the look on his brother's face. "Is he always like this?”
