(RITA Awards at the Romance Writers of America Conference in Orlando)
After a summer that was filled with way too many commitments, things are slowing down a tad in September. I have plenty of writing to do. Currently I'm working on a book that should be out sometime next summer.
Just finished up copyedits on my March 2018 book, KANSAS CITY COP, and I'll have AA's (author alterations), which are final galleys, to proof soon. KANSAS CITY COP features a hero many readers have asked for--Mike Cutler, Jr. He was a troubled teenager going through physical therapy in my book TAKEDOWN. His father was the hero in that book. But now Mike is all grown up and butting heads with a sexy Latina cop who needs his help.
Beyond writing and editing, I'm starting to put together my promotion work for my November 21st (December 1st in digital) release, MILITARY GRADE MISTLETOE. I absolutely loved writing this book! And I'm really proud of my Marine Corps hero who's coming to grips with his PTSD while he's home for Christmas. He's hard-wired to be a protector, and when he meets his longtime penpal, Daisy Gunderson, in person and discovers she has a stalker, it's Master Sergeant Harry Lockhart to the rescue. And yes, sharp readers, Harry is Hope Lockhart's brother from my book, TASK FORCE BRIDE. If you love a Beauty & the Beast story for the holidays, I think you'll love this one.
