For the Ladies! FIND YOUR LOST….

Ever want to escape for a while? Hide away from the daily grind, the hustle and bustle, the drama and madness of a world that’s always running full-steam? Ever try finding lost? It’s a term my mother-in-law used to say all the time and live by as she raised her family. When I met my husband, he introduced me to the idea. When we married, we introduced the idea to our children.

It’s a rather simple idea, really. All you do is get in the car, pick a direction, and go. When you come to an intersection, someone picks a direction to go. It harkens back a bit to the old days of going out for a Sunday drive, with no real plan for a destination other than just driving around looking at the scenery before you. At one point, we’d always be a bit lost, but eventually we;d always find our way back home. It was rather fun and thrilling.

With the idea of FINDING LOST in my mind, I turned to writing. Automatically, I thought SUSPENSE. If a person was in trouble and didn’t want to be found, well, why couldn’t they FIND LOST? That is how my latest romantic suspense novel was born. SO, on this lovely day, when we can do what we want, why not FIND YOUR OWN LOST in a book? Try on mine for size. It’s hefty enough to leave you feeling very satisfied at the end of it, but short enough as to not take up an entire day to read.

SO, find lost today in the pages of FINDING LOST (4.8 STARS)…

How could anyone be miserable in paradise? Carrie Samuels could write a book about it. Far away from her family and friends, she’s fled to Isla Mujéres hoping to escape a relentless stalker who knew how to torment and leave no calling card. What started out as a short-term solution has turned into a long-term jail sentence on a tropical island.

Painfully handsome, with a killer smile and well-hewn body, Dillon McMahon left his past behind and plans to spend the rest of his life off the grid on Isla Mujéres, the perfect place to dig in. Living next door to a sexy, quirky, and mysterious woman makes it all the sweeter.

When Carrie and Dillon’s pasts collide with the present, it threatens their budding relationship and sends them into a maelstrom of danger, abduction, and attempted murder. Sometimes, no matter how far you run, you just can’t hide.

The ANGEL has risen! Witness the miracle…

When I started writing Angel Rising, I had no idea the enormous hold it would have on me. I got halfway through the darn thing and realized that this book would be the most intense, the most heart-wrenching, and the longest I’d ever written. That’s right, I was sitting at 50K words and still had another 50K more to say. 

Out there in Internet World, it had come to my attention that there was a new trend; people were reading shorter-length pieces. That worried me. What would I do with my 100K+ novel? It occurred to me that I could split the book into two parts and offer it as a duet of books. Well, it worked okay for a while, but I wasn’t happy. I mean, they look awesome as paperbacks together, but as an ebook, Book 2 was getting lost.

So, I decided to bring the two parts back together and under one roof, so to speak. I couldn’t be happier, and Hannah and Gabriel agree. Now that the story is whole, I hope that people will not shy away from it due to its length. When a story’s gotta be told, there’s no stopping it, no matter the length.

If you’ve read Angel Rising already, I hope you loved it. If you haven’t, here’s your chance. http://amzn.to/1EH59l7

NEW YEAR, new lease on life…

image[50]How many times have we made resolutions that only days later we don’t keep? PLENTY! Well, I knew, for me to make any kind of change in my lifestyle, it would take a doctor saying, “You gotta change because you’re hurting yourself.” Well, that’s what’s happened over the course of last few months.

On a journey to eat healthier due to no more gall bladder, I embarked on a healthy kick, which everyone in the family embraced. Little did I know, the very foods I was eating were attacking me! I had a major food allergy test done, and the results came back. I’m still reeling from the implications, but safe to say, eating safer, rather than healthier, is one resolution of mine that has no wiggle room. If I want to STAY ill, I should keep on eating healthy foods like hummus and guacamole. That’s right, these healthy snacks make me sick. I can’t even begin to list all the foods I’m severely or mildly intolerant to. The list is expansive and surprising. Now, add to that heady mix the fact that I’m severely intolerant to gluten and cow’s milk. What do I adore? Breads and cheeses. What do I enjoy even more? Putting those two together. 

I can tell this change-over is going to be a challenge. Not in the obvious ways, but in the quiet ways. For example, I can live with changing milk to almond milk, but Smart Balance spread has milk in it, and I use it heavily for cooking. I refuse to switch to unhealthy margarines, so what’s to be done? Another example is that I cook all the time with olive oil, and I love soybean products like edamame and tofu. Can’t use or eat any of those. 

So, I look forward with equal parts anticipation and dread for my phone call to speak with a nutritionist on Tuesday. I’m hoping to hear more positive information and get practical advice for substitutions and which products are best. My resolution this year? Change my life for the better through smart, safe, healthy-for-me eating.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!

I love this time of year, sort of. You see, I’m not much of a fan of winter, overall. Far too cold, snowy, and icy for my liking. But since moving to Arizona, it is much more palatable. Now, all the colorful lights and displays in front of people’s homes make me smile as I drive home from work. The smell of wood smoke from fireplaces and wood stoves is comforting and nostalgic. 

The winter holidays in my home revolve around Hanukkah, so I thought I’d share images of holiday treats you’ll find during these eight days. There’s always lots of food fried in oil to commemorate the miracle of a tiny bit of oil lasting for eight days as the temple was rebuilt from destruction by King Nebuchadnezzar and his army…

   

 We eat potato latkes with sour cream.          Fried doughnuts with cinnamon & sugar.

   

 Falafel are a Hanukkah favorite.           Fried chicken for protein!

 What would Hannukkah be without chocolate money?!?!

PRESENT TIME!!! TELL ME, WHAT KINDS OF YUMMY FOODS DO YOU EAT TO CELEBRATE YOUR HOLIDAY? ANYONE WHO COMMENTS AND LEAVES THEIR EMAIL ADDRESS WILL RECEIVE LINKS FOR THREE, YES THREE FREE Ebooks FROM ME! 

If you’re not familiar with my work, I write PARANORMAL ROMANCE and ROMANTIC SUSPENSE. I’ve always had a love affair with the idea of immortality and the struggle between good and evil, so you’ll find those elements at the forefront of my PNRs, along with steamy, sensual, addictive romance. The struggle between good and evil continues into my romantic suspense titles, as well. This time, though, it’s human beings that are devious, conniving, and psychopathic.
