Why Women Read Romance

Posted Jul 13 2015 in , ,

Romance is in the news a lot lately and much of the coverage is snotty and demeaning. As a writer, I hear the remarks all the time (even in my own home). Because of this, I wrote an article that has been published by The Good Men Project. I suppose I’m preaching to the choir […]

Hero Vs Hero

Posted Feb 6 2015 in , , , , ,

Next week, my publisher, Kensington, is hosting a March madness style competition pitting romance heroes against each other. There will be two voting round each day (with a couple of days having an extra round due to President’s Day).  I chose to use Ryan O’Leary as my ultimate hero. Voting day for Ryan won’t be […]

Cleaning Up Characters on Copper

Posted Jul 30 2013 in , , , , ,

A few months ago, I wrote a post comparing Copper to Ripper Street. Of the two, I prefer Copper because I found the characters more engaging (read that as more fucked up). I’m a couple of episodes behind on the new season, but one thing that I’ve noticed is that the characters have cleaned up […]

Arrow – Another Tortured Hero

Posted Oct 18 2012 in , , , ,

I said on Tuesday that I’d be scarce for the next couple of weeks because I’m on deadline, but I had a really, really productive day yesterday. I got my page proofs for More Than This in the mail back to Kensington and I got through the first 100 pages of revisions for book 2. […]

Longmire vs. Justified

Posted Jun 14 2012 in , , , , , , ,

(Let me start with an apology if the formatting of this post is wonky. I’ve been fighting it all day and finally gave up) When I first talked about new shows starting for the summer, I mentioned that I hoped that Longmire would fill the gap left by one of my favorite shows, Justified. I […]

Who Do You Love? Alpha or Beta Heroes?

Posted Jun 5 2012 in , , , ,

I wasn’t really sure what I was going to write about today and then I read an interview with Ruthie Knox. Ruthie’s new book About Last Night comes out next week. I thought the release date was today, so I was quite disappointed to find out I’m a week early. If you’ve been reading my […]

Friday Favorites – Hello and Goodbye

Posted May 11 2012 in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’m running late with today’s post because my modem decided to go crazy yesterday. Just stopped working (while I was in the middle of finalizing lesson plans for last night). Then it started working again hours later. Needless to say, a new modem is in my very near future. So many good things to read […]

Men Fall in Love Faster than Women – Really?

Posted Apr 10 2012 in , , , , , ,

Recently I saw a news article on the topic of men falling in love. I went to find the original source and couldn’t find anything from the past couple of weeks, but I did find this one from last summer. Why it took Yahoo 9 months to run something similar is beyond me. Basically, a […]

Before I get to my mash-up of awesome links this week, I want to tell you about a book I just finished: A Little Night Magic by Lucy March. If any of you have read my Friday Favorites posts, you know that I’ve talked about Lucy March (AKA Lani Diane Rich) before. She’s a great […]

The Broken Hero

Posted Jan 24 2012 in , , , , , , ,

It’s after nine p.m. Monday night and I realized that I had no blog post for today. Nada. Usually I have something at least drafted, even if it’s just a title and an opening paragraph. But it’s been one of those weeks where a lot has been going on (mostly good) and I’ve been wrapped […]
