In what’s become a delightful winter holiday tradition, I have a story in WMG Publishing’s Holiday Spectacular! This time around, the sweet holiday romance of The Most Impressive Courage of a Little Tortie Cat features not only two people who need to get together, but two sweet kitties who help make it happen.
We’re tickled absolutely silly to share our latest writing and publishing project with you: We’re launching our own online store!
I’m absolutely delighted to have a story featured in the wonderful WMG Holiday Spectacular for the fifth year in a row! “The Most Impressive Courage of a Little Tortie Cat” revisits the fabulous Hidden Springs Inn and Spa, and features not one but two of the inn’s magical cats.
One of the frequent foundations in steampunk fiction—whether fantasy is included or not—is elements from the Victorian Era to go with the awesome gadgets and steam power and fashion.
One of my favorite things about the Victorian Era is how very strange it was.
Nowhere near as prim and proper as it seems on the surface.
You’ll find plenty of adventurous takes on steampunk, fantasy, and our fascinating inheritance from the Victorians in this StoryBundle. Read on for more about The Dream Thief and the other wonderful stories!
I’m delighted to share my second contribution to this year’s Holiday Spectacular from WMG Publishing with The Copper Valley Cocoa Conniption Competition. In case you want to celebrate along with me and everyone in the little Appalachian town of Copper Valley, December 13 is National Cocoa Day!
One important thing you’ll learn in this cozy mystery is hot cocoa isn’t the same as hot chocolate. For cocoa, you start with cocoa powder rather than melting chocolate. After that, the only limit to the flavors you create is your own imagination and the ingredients you have on hand.
Of course you want to make sure you know what’s in all the ingredients you work with. Leaving such things to chance can lead to…unexpected results.
My short story What Breaks a Man was listed in Other Distinguished Mystery and Suspense of 2021 in Best American Mystery and Suspense!
