I write steamy paranormal romances and wickedly fun romantic adventures, stories that crackle with action and love. Challenging, smart alpha men—and women not afraid of a challenge. Oh, do the sparks fly when he meets THE woman guaranteed to infuriate and inflame him most.

In real life I'm a USA Today bestselling author, a spouse and mother, a flutist, a computer geek, and a binge-TV-watcher of The Flash, Elementary, NCIS, and Wynonna Earp.

I'd love to hear from you!

I just double checked and Bad Boy Billionaire's Lady (Lovless Brothers) has no graphic sex. Also, while my upcoming Playing With Fire: The Battle of the Bands (A Starstruck Novella) has a physical culmination of love, it's only a couple paragraphs of metaphor. Hope that helps! ~Mary(less)

Hi Goodreads! My favorite fictional couple...does anyone have just one? lol.

Of the couples I've written, one of my favorites has to be Julian and Nixie, because they're so utterly different (tall austere powerful lawyer vampire, tiny punk rock mouthy human musician), yet they find a special shared wavelength.

Of those I've read, top of the list is Amelia Peabody and Radcliffe Emerson. Next is Harry Dresden and Karrin Murphy, though I'm not sure they'll get their HEA. And what is happening with Bob Howard and Mo O'Brien in the Laundry Files? *bites nails* Favorite partners include Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin and Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Television's Phryne Fisher and Jack Robinson are amazing.

I have tons more favorites, but these are the first to come to mind.(less)

3T Writing Tidbit - story structure part II

I've been reviewing story structure lately. Despite what the pundits say, there's more than one way to tell a story! You have your 3-17 step hero's journey, your 5 plot-point, your 3 act, your 2 step scene/sequel. Let's start on the far end and work our way in.

Last month we did the hero's journey. Today, let's discuss my favorite, the 5 plot points.

There are changes in a novel. Lots of them, or t

“Since a cold shower wasn't handy, I decided to walk my squishy off." - Nixie”
Mary Hughes, Biting Nixie

“I cringed as the band oozed into the next chord. If notes were cars, I think there was a D major under the wreckage.”
Mary Hughes, Biting Nixie

“A friend said to me, “Hey you need to grow a pair. Grow a pair, Bro.” It’s when someone calls you weak, but they associate it with a lack of testicles. Which is weird, because testicles are the most sensitive things in the world. If you suddenly just grew a pair, you’d be a lot more vulnerable. If you want to be tough, you should lose a pair. If you want to be real tough, you should grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.”
Sheng Wang

“The most enjoyable book in the world is the phone book, because think of all the sex that went into creating the content.”
Jarod Kintz, 99 Cents For Some Nonsense

“I won't bite."
"Are you sure?" My voice was rough.
"I won't bite right now," he said with a ghost of a smile.
The soft expression bemused me enough so that the gentle patting lured me to the recliner. Logan wrapped strong arms around me and pulled me into his lap.
My butt fit him like we were interlocking puzzle pieces.”
Mary Hughes
