Anna lives with her quietly funny Canadian husband and two less quiet children in a century-old house in Seattle. She writes paranormal romantic suspense and award-winning military romance in the spaces left after dealing with kids, laundry, crazy volunteer commitments and internet distractions.

Her lifelong passion for new places (and a need to pay tuition) led her to become an army officer en route to visiting four continents and twenty-two countries. Now the places she goes are more likely to be field trips than trips to the field, but it's still fun.

I like to plot out a story on index cards before I write, in order to see if I have enough scenes for a whole book or if I have a big mess of not much. Years ago I took a Blake Snyder "Save the Cat" workshop, and that's the system I've followed ever since.(less)

SO GOOD! This was recommended on twitter, I think by Alisha Rai, as an example of a white author "getting it right" and writing sensitively with a character from an ethnic group the author doesn't belong to. That recommendation sold me, and also I'd ...more

Books 1 and 3 of this series are among my favorites - I regularly reread them if I can't find something else on my kindle - so I decided to complete the series and bought #2. It's fine, but didn't grab me as much as 1 and 3. Start with them.

DNF for Audiobook. I gave it a good try, I guess -- about 10% (almost the whole first CD, out of 11 CDs). I didn't connect with the narrator, and quit part way through the long (really, really long) scene where she's picking up a stranger in a bar. C ...more

Sisters by Lily Tuck

Audiobook was DNF. It wasn't my cup of tea, too mannerly and disjointed and I'm not a fan of unreliable or unlikeable narrators. I didn't like the protagonist, and I felt like it was a writing exercise stretched out to a novella. Perhaps it would wor ...more

I usually like the FATAL series, but this one just didn't click for me. Some of that may be because I read it during a week of crappy news re the Brett Kavanaugh hearings (and non-investigation) for the the Supreme Court. It was a really crappy real ...more
