Read from May 01 to 03, 2016

Note: CLAIMING THE REBEL’S HEART has been republished as HER REBEL HEART and is available in Kindle and print editions from Amazon. The copy I had was of Claiming the Rebel’s Heart.

Synopsis: War divides families…love unites hearts…

Herefordshire, England 1643

As the English Civil War divides England and tears families apart, Kinton Lacey castle is one of the brave few loyal to the roundhead cause.

With her father away, Deliverance Felton will do whatever it takes to defend her family home against the royalist forces ranged against it. She can shoot and wield a sword as well as any man and anything she needs to know about siege warfare she has learned from a book…but no book can prepare her for what is to come.

Captain Luke Collyer, soldier of fortune and a man with his own reasons for loyalty to the parliamentary cause, is sent to relieve the castle. Everything he knows about siege warfare in general and women in particular he has learned from experience, but when it comes to Deliverance Felton has he met his match?

Deliverance will not give up her command lightly and Luke will have to face a challenge to his authority as fierce as the cavalier foe outside the walls. He will do whatever it takes to win Deliverance’s trust but will he run the risk of losing his own, well guarded, heart? Continue reading

NaNo update


So, I had planned to do more updates, but that didn’t happen.

Here’s my one, and likely, only update about my NaNo progress until I post about winning (which I will!)


Happy writing to those who are still battling against the writers block and juggling the word slinging. You can do it!

Congrats to those who have already won! I’ll see you all on the flip side of Nov.

Happy NaNo-Eve


Creatures and crawlies are stirring, ready for another dose of fun and frivolity.

Oh wait!

I got that a bit mixed up with Halloween.

NaNoWriMo will see the writerly folk disappear into darkened rooms to splatter brain matter onto keyboards across the globe.

Am I ready?!

Hell no!

Will I enjoy the ride?

Will I give it a red-hot go?!

NaNoWriMo here we come!


Who else is gearing up for the insanity of NaNo?


I’m quite in awe of the determination of this NaNo-er: https://jccauthon.wordpress.com/2016/10/13/nano-prepping/

I just pants it and end up in deep trouble when all I end up writing is filth. But! I have 50,000 words of filth. I’m hoping I will eventually produce something epic.
So, who else out there is jumping on the NaNo train in 2016?
