155023Holy Nassau Cannon Ballz! I can finally access my blog!!! Yes, it’s true. I’ve been locked out of my account for almost three months. Hard to believe, but this has been a PITA. Anyhoo, pardon my absence, me hearties! Rest assured, I’m back to cause more shenanigans. Heehee!!!

So much has happened since the beginning of the new year and I’ve got a load to catch up on.

First, after being in the editing cave for nearly a month, I’ve finally emerged and can announce that MY LADY ROGUE, A Nelson’s Tea Novella #2, is up for pre-order everywhere, except B&N and ITunes! Simon and Gillian’s continuing love story releases St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th! Huzzah and Hoorah!

A Nelson's Tea Novella, Book Two

A Nelson’s Tea Novella, Book Two

Baroness Gillian Chauncey thought she’d seen everything during her years of devotion to England. But as war escalates and political bonds are severed, a devastating betrayal forces Gillian to make a life or death decision to save the man she loves.

Lord Simon Danbury’s loyalty to the crown has never been questioned — until now. As death’s darkening veil cascades over London, a hostile mole inside Nelson’s Tea tries to assassinate him. Surrounded by the greatest spies in England, only one thing stands to defeat him — losing the one woman who has made life worth living.

Everything Simon and Gillian have done has led to this moment… Will it be too late?

Arlington Hotel Elevators


I just returned from my nephew’s wedding in Hot Springs, AR. We stayed in the Arlington Hotel, a fabulous 1925 building with nearly 100-year-old working elevators, mail shoots and more. The original structure burned down in 1923.

Spas! Natural parks! What a beautiful area made more endearing by the memory of my nephew’s wonderful ceremony! Wishing my nephew and his bride lifelong love and happiness! #badtothebonewedding ROCKED!!!

Meanwhile, I’m taking a great Novel In A Month class with Peter Andrews. My hope is to get a novella completed for end of year release. This one is completely different from my Nelson’s Tea Series. Woot! And of course, I’m finishing up THE ROGUE’S SURRENDER, Book #3 in my Nelson’s Tea Series. This is Garrick’s book, me hearties! Aye, he’s been through hell and back and deserves a HEA, don’t you think?

We’re in the process of updating my website. Squarespace has updated data and made it more difficult to manage so it’s slow goin’s. Everything’s a learning process, right? If you ARRRen’t learning, you’re dead. LOL! (Special shout out to my youngest daughter Juliana Bone, a magnificent graphic artist, for doing such a great job!)
