Since I'm still working the day job and have several other balls to juggle, the first is simple exhaustion. It's hard to be creative when you're dead tired. At that point, I have to step back and assess priorities rather than stress out.
The second is the dreaded, what happens next? Fortunately I don't hit this one often, but when I do I brainstorm with friends. Sometimes it gets completely out of control and leads to great ideas for future books. :)(less)

Hi Janet ~
I'm so glad you enjoyed So About the Money. The chemistry between Holly & JC was a lot of fun to write. :)
I'm working on Book2 and recently finished a novella that's out with beta readers. Hopefully everything comes together for the scheduled fall release.
Both my website & FB page have a sign up link for the "new release" newsletter if you'd like for me to let you know when it's available.

Pugsy the Rescue Pug

For many years, I had a muse. She was perfect. I called her Lucy Laptop and she was a Pug. A Mother's Day gift, Lucy was a puppy at the time. Her job was to sit next to me on the couch and inspire me - something she did for thirteen years. 
Sadly, Lucy died of cancer two years ago. And for the last two years, I'd see Pugs everywhere I went - from the grocery store to vacatio... Read more of this blog post »

“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.”
Alan Bennett, The History Boys
