Have been working as much as time allows on the next book in this series.

Made it to the last chapter, but nearing the end, the story took on a life of its own. Although exciting, is was an unexpected turn.

However, I did finish that one last night, and am again trying to write the last chapter...see what happens this time...

Will it get finished? Or, will there be another surprise hidden inside my head?

Stay tuned...Cutter's Revenge is in the works!

I know it has been a long wait since I first said this next book would be out in a couple of months.

Well, we hit a bit of a snag with the cover art -- my artist went and got herself pregnant! Her and her hubby are very happy, as am I, but this has slowed things down just a bit.

If all goes as planned, the cover will be done within the next 5 weeks.....just before baby makes her arrival.

So, dear friends and fans, hang on just a while longer. It is a book worth the wait!

In the meantime, if you haven't read the first two books in this series, you have a little longer to get that done.

I've lost a bunch of reviews on Amazon, all written by people who bought signed copies of my books from me instead of buying from Amazon.

I salvaged some before all got deleted, and these are now on my website.

For the ones who wrote a review and it has been removed, if you'd like to write another one, send it to me via Facebook or by email, I will gladly add it to my website.

If I can help it, Amazon is not going to stop me from posting what my readers share after reading my books!


Website to see the reviews, and all my books:

If you'd like to sign the petition to try and stop Amazon from removing honest reviews, follow this link:

Thank you to everyone who signs, and you can also share this link with your friends.

The Bitterest Taste in Your Mouth, November 20, 2012
By Amelia - This review is from: BITTER MEMORIES: A Memoir of Heartache & Survival (Kindle Edition)

If anyone ever had any doubt about the possible ugliness in the world, they need only read "Bitter Memories" to look into the cruelty that is capable of beating in the hearts of people.

There is no rise and fall of bad events for Sarah's life. Nothing gets better; the little girl's life merely continues to spiral with a hurricane of grief, abuse, and a loveless life. On a journey with her abusive Daddy, who she can't help but love and trust, Sarah is constantly meeting new friends and relatives of her father who only add to her misery. Starvation, beatings, molestation - it seems nearly everyone Sarah meets wants to abuse her somehow.

With no one to turn to, what else is a little girl to do but make up her own heroes in her head? Readers may interpret the people Sarah sees as imaginary friends, multiple personalities, or guardian angels. Either way, the only escape afforded to the little girl are friends that no one else can see. In times when she can't take anymore, her other personalities take to take, acting as a shield for Sarah. What may seem as a side-effect of Sarah's torment may actually be what saves the pure girl.

Though there is no upside to the story of an abused child, reading a book like this will at least motivate more people to become more aware of child abuse. It is nearly impossible to ignore that inner mama bear, or papa bear, that roars against injustice for helpless children.

Excerpt from Bitter Memories: A Memoir of Heartache & Survival --

"My name is Sarah, a little girl kidnapped by her father, trying to survive in a world of abuse, hunger, neglect, and terror.
This is a gripping, unforgettable, emotional journey.
This was my life..."

You can also go to and read the first 3 chapters, and part of the forth for free.
