I appreciate your comments. I do plan my stories...somewhat. I like to outline and have an idea how it will end. I do character histories and like to establish major plot points. In romance, we know the boy will always get the girl, but we have to make it look like it's possible for them NOT to end up together. They have to surmount obstacles. I do like to leave room for exploration in my plot. Sometimes characters do tell you where to go, and it's not always where you expect. I believe in leaving myself a little wiggle room. Thanks for your question!(less)

My next Gemini Island Shifters book comes Sept 8 and features hero/heroine couple Killian Moon and Nina Suzuki. Killian is a jaguar shifter who has worked at the Ursa Fishing Lodge and Resort for years. He mentors troubled teen shifters but comes from a wild and wicked family past, himself. Human Nina comes to Gemini Island in search of answers about a friend and encounters the gorgeous Killian. Although they both distrust each other, for their own reasons, the attraction is instantaneous.

Beyond that I plan a final installment on the series and am currently working on an incubus book featuring a Canadian soprano heroine, a dishy conductor and a ghost who won't take no for an answer. :)(less)

My house is currently full of raging teen and tween hormones. It occurred to me the other day that it won't be long before my sons want to date. I've already spotted the interest.

My first reaction, of course, is to cry like a baby because my boys are growing. However, at 11 and 13, I think they'll still consider me their main gal for a little while longer.

Even still, I couldn't help but try to... Read more of this blog post »

Hi Sarah! I had a look and realized afterward it's just about 50 Shades. I'll be honest, I've never read it and it isn't on my TBR list. I should probably bow out, as I won't be able to contribute much. My apologies- at first when I read the description, I thought it was about books like that one. So sorry.

Rosanna Leo Hi friends. There are still book pirates out there. I just spent the past while sending take down notices to a pirate who had almost all my books, equaling tons of illegal downloads. What can you do when you see your favorite author`s book on a pirate site? Tell the author so she can contact them. Report them. Hit them where it hurts (their wallets) by refusing to download from them. It may not seem like a big deal, but each illegal download hurts authors, whether small-press or indie.
