Life Update

It’s been a while since I blogged. Life gets in the way and I’ve stayed busy since retiring from writing romances. For twenty-five years, I enjoyed creating heros and heroines who captivated my readers and I thank you all for your support.

The past few years, I’ve learned how to fly an airplane, raise sheep, make homemade pasta, and I’ve enjoyed my gardening in the summer. My husband and I frequently travel and we’ve gone to some amazing places. This year we cruised through the Virgin Islands–visiting five countries. As I’ve transitioned into normal life, as it so happened, about a two years ago, I got a fabulous idea for a new book. It’s not a romance and it’s not women’s fiction. Rather, a commercial fiction idea that would appeal to both men and women. It spans many decades and is richly textured. Writing this book is slow going, and I find myself sidetracked researching the 1950s and 1960s. When I approach the 1970s, I won’t need to research much at all–I lived it. The book is set in Los Angeles, my hometown. I grew up in a time in L.A. when things were uncomplicated, your summer days were spent taking the beach bus to Santa Monica. High school days were all about cruising Van Nuys Blvd.

As I make progress with my latest novel, I wanted to reconnect with my fans and let them know what I’m up to, as well as announcing that five of my beloved contemporary romances will soon be available via eb00k format. My very first contemporary romance, GIRLS NIGHT, made the USA TODAY and Waldenbooks bestseller lists. This was a fun book to write and I’ve recently reread it myself and fallen in love with Vince all over again.

What do you consider a fun girls night?
