'Tis the Season and all that jazz

So we've come almost full circle and what a whirlwind it's been. 2013 was a good year for me. Creatively, I pushed past boundaries and found myself debuting in erotic literature - something I thought I'd never do, but I did it and it was well received. I also found myself writing my first crime thriller, a novel which will see me break another personal boundary and fulfill a lifetimes passion.

My children have been blessed with good health, although their mouths seem to get bigger with each passing year, haha, and my husband has been wonderfully supportive. We changed our second living room into a working space for me. It is now my 'office' and I must admit, it's great to be able to close the door at the end of the day, instead of the old '5 minutes more' routine.

2014 proves to be another wonderful year, and I already have two impending releases: The Taken, publishes March 8th and the third installment in my Rose Saga, Under the Burning Sun publishes May 12th.

I will also be travelling to the United States in August, where I will attend the Believe HOPE LIVE Author Convention, in Agusta, Maine. I will be bringing my 13 year old daughter with me and we intend on staying in New York for a night to get into the spirit of things, and have a pre - 14th birthday treat, yes, it's a bit extravagant, but she's my kind and I adore her. It is going to a special trip and I am so excited at the prospect of meeting my fellow author's and friends.

I am both excited and humbled. When I started this journey all those years ago, I never truly anticipated the huge support network that would grow. It has become something bigger than I ever imagined and I am so thankful for all the readers and fans who continue to support me, read my work and help spread the word.

So from me to you, wherever you are in this beautiful, wonderful planet. MERRY CHRISTMAS and may the force be with you.

Here's a little picture to make you smile. My very own Elf. My four year old son, Rory. Isn't he cute?
