I'm fervently working toward a March 2021 release of book 4 in the DCYE series (' Dangerous Games '). I'm also working on getting book 2 'Complicated Moonlight' to the publisher for a March release in paperback. I'm dedicated to releasing a new ebook every three months, with several more volumes in the pipeline. The saga is complete at 1.2 million word count in rough draft, but I don't want to rush to release a book I'm not absolutely satisfied with as a reader and editor. (I want to give you the best book hangovers I can craft.) Expect at least 10 volumes and as many as 14 when the dust settles.

Thank you for joining me on this rollercoaster ride, Laura! ;)(less)

I have a short story coming out in Writer's Digest this month that is actually a feel-good mommy story from my pov. Kind of breaks my mold a bit. There are also a couple of YA romance novels that have infancies I will be at liberty to expand once more of my projects are completed. I'm pretty excited for those.(less)

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
Dr. Seuss

“The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it.”
Jordan Belfort

“Never complain, never explain. Resist the temptation to defend yourself or make excuses.”
Brian Tracy

“Uncomplicate it. Don’t make excuses. Some of life’s biggest heartaches come from missed opportunities and lame excuses. Don’t miss out on what could be the best chapter in your life because you’re too busy rereading the last one.”
Kandi Steiner, Song Chaser
