A Paranormal Period Piece

Bewitching_LI love dark things, and I love period pieces. I love the paranormal side of life, and I love the Victorian era. I love intrigue, and I love romance. So what did I do? I incorporated all that wonderful stuff into my latest series: Tales From Hawthorn Lane, a sensual saga that takes place in the dark and magical village of Hawthorn Lane – a sanctuary for the fey.

Although it’s modern day, the villagers live as though in another time, with long dresses and twirling cloaks, crackling fires and fancy carriages. Trouble’s always brewing in this beguiling world, where light and dark are in a constant battle for control. Lorelle Gragan, the main character, struggles to find herself, to shed her mask, to believe in love in this strange and chaotic world where nothing is as it seems. Beneath the facade she wears to protect herself lurks a powerful sensual force that’s just waiting to break free, and when it does, nothing will ever be the same for her or the residents of Hawthorn Lane.

Take a look at the synopsis for Bewitching Hawthorn Lane, the first book in the series…

The Next Big Thing

THE NEXT BIG THING is a chain of book and author recommendations. Each author answers some questions about their work, then recommends other authors…


1. What is the working title of your next book?


The Chronicles of Anaedor: The Lost Ones. It’s book three in a series of four books. Books One (The Prophecies) and Two (The Return to Anaedor) have already been published. If they weren’t, I’d be annoyed if I were you.


2.  Where did the idea come from for the book?


I was living in the city at the time, which was not my favorite place, being that I’m a country girl at heart, but it had this wonderful park full of ravines and streams that totally saved me. One day I was walking through the park, contemplating life, when I imagined that a creature was peeping out from beneath a rock, watching me pass by. Kind of creepy, I suppose, but it jump-started my idea of the hidden, underground world of Anaedor.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Going the Whole Hog! – Part One

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

I absolutely love the Harry Potter books and movies.  They capture all the wondrous things I dreamed about having and doing as a child, and still dream about as an adult, from the bountiful feasts to the castle looming over the loch, from the possessing of magical powers to the partaking in amazing adventures.  So it won’t surprise you that ever since hearing about Universal’s new Wizarding World of Harry Potter (WWHP) theme park, I started plotting ways to get there.

Where I Got My Love For Fantasy

Prophecies_SMy mom has the best imagination! She’s always making unique things for my kids, or coming up with fun games for them to play. I love that she has passed along this part of herself by instilling in her kids (all five of us) and in her grandkids a love of the mysterious, the magical, and the mischievousness of life.

Here’s her latest achievement…
