So today I have the pleasure of interviewing one of my favourite people in the world. If we weren't different sides of the pond, then Susan and I would be joined at the hip and if you like my writing, you'll LOVE hers (I certainly do!!). Today we managed to get time to sit down and talk about CHANCE OF A LIFETIME, which is Susan's story in the LOVED IN SPACE anthology out in March 2020!! So...Susan, tell us about your hero? My hero, Erik, has been quietly lurking in the background of my Drift series almost from the first book. He’s adopted the Nova Club and the people who work there as his home and family, and he’d do anything to protect them. Like many who come to the Drift, he has a past he doesn’t talk about. His friends would say he’s fun, [...]
It's been a long time coming but the fourth book in the PROJECT REBELLION series is finally here and live!! Get Your Copy NOW She needed the story. She didn’t expect to run for her life in a world where vampires and werewolves are real... The homeless are going missing, and reporter Max Harvey can just smell the story. None of her usual contacts will talk to her. They’re scared, which sets her reportery senses tingling. Deciding to go undercover is a stroke of genius... Until she’s snatched with the others and thrown into a world she never expected. A world of government conspiracies and genetic experiments where supernatural creatures exist and the real monsters are the humans trying to kill her. In a desperate race through the forest, she must trust a dangerous man who is more [...]
He’s been loyal to the empire all his life. Will he betray everything he knows to save the woman he loves?
To celebrate sending this off to my editor finally, this week's snippet is again from RESCUED BY HER ALIEN PROTECTOR. (Please note, snippet is completely unedited and will probably contain things that will make editors cry!) Draanth. As a move to get them all grouped together, it was slick and impressive, one even Danaar hadn’t seen coming. But not as impressive as the heavy pistols the human had managed to produce out of seemingly nowhere. Sparky caught Danaar’s eye and smiled. “Chameleon holsters. When you absolutely, positively do not want anyone to know the heat you’re packing. I’d have one built into a jock strap but… you know, that would be false advertising and I wouldn’t wanna scare anyone.” Danaar had no idea what a jock strap was, but the less than subtle jerk of the other male’s hips left him in no doubt as [...]
He woke in a cage. Again. Well, fuck it, that escape had gone to hell in a hand basket. Hadn’t it? Dean Steele groaned as he opened his eyes, blinking until they cooperated and focused on the scene above him. Sure enough, bars stood between him and the ceiling high above. Yeah. He could smell the rust and metal. Once you’d been in one cage, smelled one, it was unmistakable. With a sigh, he shut his eyes again, not making an effort to move from where he was sprawled on his back. Why bother? What was the point? He lived and died at the will of others and had done so from the moment he’d been infected months ago. He was stupid if he thought any differently. That he could affect his fate. Negate it somehow. He wasn’t human now. Why should he expect to [...]
I was asked recently for a bit of creative writing advice. I wouldn't consider myself an expert since I'm still learning, and I always will be. There's always something new to learn with writing, or hone as much as you can. Then when you think you've gotten it, it's like you level up and you start all over again! But that's good... in my opinion, that's how it should be and when you stop learning, well... So… I'm going to talk a little bit about types of writers. I personally am a combination. I am half plotter and half panster (this type is sometimes called a discovery writer). For me, that means I work out my basic overall plot for a book first. I have my characters, I know where they are at the beginning and a basic idea of how the big plot will [...]
It's been a long time since I've done a #snippet here on the blog, so I figured it was about time :) Enjoy this snippet from RESCUED BY HER ALIEN PROTECTOR. (Please note, snippet is completely unedited and will probably make my editor cry and remove my internet privileges!) “Seemed you forgot one vital little detail,” Saad swaggered forward arrogantly, obviously enjoying his little moment. “Like the fact we’ve been here a fuckload longer than you have. I know these tunnels, I OWN these tunnels. There ain’t nowhere you can run that I can’t find you. You…” He pointed the shiv he held at Madison. “Are a dead fucking woman walking.” She held herself lightly. Putting her back to Indra’s, she tested her grip on the small hand axe. It was the only weapon she had, but by god, she wasn’t going to go down [...]
