This is a great question - I've actually had a few requests for a book about Lauren, and I'd definitely consider it. I'm a big fan of redemption in books, and I'd like to see Lauren make a turnaround. Another of my books featured a former Mean Girl heroine, and she remains one of my favorite characters ever. At the root of the bad behavior of people like Lauren is insecurity, and I like the process of exploring where that comes from and what can diminish it.
I'm working on a novella for an upcoming anthology, and then I'll be starting my new On the Line hockey series. But if something grabs me, I often work it in somehow, and it's very possible that could happen with Lauren. I'm also considering a short work with deleted and bonus scenes from all the Fire on Ice books, and something featuring Lauren would be a great fit there.

I have a few other projects I need to get to first. What do you think, does Troy need a story of his own? He's got plenty of demons, which always makes for a strong story.(less)

Easy is here!

Hey guys! I know this is an unprecedented start to summer, and I hope you're staying safe and healthy while still getting in some sun and fun. One upside of quarantine is that I've been reading a lot more. My current read is Chosen Ones by Veronica Roth, and I'm loving it.

On Tuesday I released Easy, the sixth book in my Chicago Blaze hockey romance series. This is a second chance romance set in Ea Read more of this blog post »

Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Ernest Hemingway

Colleen Hoover, Slammed

Brenda Rothert Thank you! It's exciting to see so many reviews coming in. I'm anxious to get started on the third book, but have to finish the one I'm working on first. I'm almost halfway done and may send you the first half when it's complete. I think you read the open of this one, if I remember right.

Carrie I feel like I'm seeing more and more reviews of one of your books in my feeds lately. And even better, everyone seems to like them. Congratulations! : )

Thanks, Michelle! I'm a big fan of Layla myself. I knew her and liked her in my head and hoped I could bring that out in writing this book. Layla's the kind of girl I just wish I could hang out with.


Michelle Brenda- So far I'm loving Now & Again and I only finished the first chapter... From the first book, I know everyone thought of her a villain but I liked her..Layla''s character seems more realistic than her sister Emma. I just love how fierce and independent Layla is. =)


~ Stephanie Lynn ~ Thank you for the add sweetie. Looking forward to your books.


Brenda Rothert No cliffhangers from me! When I write series I still like the books to be fairly standalone. I've been left hanging too many times as a reader. :)
