    From my desk to yours, March 28 2021

    I’m currently sitting at my desk, ticking things off my ridiculously long To Do list with the assistance of wine. It doesn’t seem to matter what I do that dratted list just keeps getting longer. It’s been a bit of a messy week this end. There are just 12 weeks left until I submit my Masters thesis (the real reason for the glass of wine…), not to mention working on three new books.

Being unwell has left me in puddle I’m still trying to paddle my way out of. There are thirteen weeks until thesis submission, around six until the release of Pet Me (The Toye Shoppe Book 1) and um …. too few days until I’m supposed to put out another Grove story. Excuse me while I count hours on my fingers and do…

    Expensive by Amy Bellows

    Okay, full disclosure – I know Amy Bellows. Sort of. Amy and I know each other  in that way that writers who live on opposite sides of the world and have connected online know each other and I’m a fan. I love her shifter stories – in particular her penguins – and I love dragons so I figured Expensive was going to be good.  Every now and then as a writer you read something that makes you put your book (electronic or paper) down, take a breath and whisper “Wow! I wish I could write like that.” Expensive did that for me.  Andrew, the dragon shifter, is so endearing –…
