Jun. 8th, 2022 Cover Reveal and June Updates!


As my kids would say, it’s been a minute! I haven’t posted an update here in WAY TOO LONG!

So for today, here are the highlights of what’s been happening and what’s coming!

First, a huge THANK YOU to my readers! Thanks to YOU Malicious Intent made the April ECPA Fiction bestsellers list! I have been thrilled with your response to Gil and Ivy and their story!

If you’ve finished Malicious Intent and are sad about how long it will be until March when the final book in the series releases, well, I have good news! Two novellas to help you tide you over!

Heroes in the Crossfire – Out of Time – Defend and Protect, 2.75

This romantic suspense novella collection is available NOW. I had a blast working with Lynette, Beth, and Lisa on this fun project. And before you ask, there’s no paperback available at this time. This is ebook only. For those of you who aren’t a fan of digital, I get it. But you don’t have to have an e-reader to read it. You can get the Kindle app on your phone, or for your PC or Mac, and read it on your computer. 🙂 If the opportunity to publish this in print/audio comes along, we’ll definitely take it. But it could be a while.

My contribution, Out of Time, features Hope Malone. Hope is the sister of Faith Malone (Unknown Threat) and it’s so fun to get to share her story. Novellas (and specifically, e-book only novellas) are sometime the only way authors have available to us to write some of these secondary character focused stories and I desperately wanted to write Hope’s story! Technically, from a timeline perspective, this story falls after the events of Deadly Objective (see below for details), but only by a few weeks and there are no spoilers. The two novellas can be read in any order and are written in a way that readers who have never read any of my previous books can hop in, enjoy the story, and hopefully want to read more!


Targeted – Deadly Objective – Defend and Protect, 2.5

This novella collection is coming to you from my publisher so it will be available in print, ebook, and audio (whoop!) in November! I teamed up with Lynette Eason and Natalie Walters for this one and again, chose a favorite secondary character to write about. Deadly Objective features Emily Dixon. Emily is the twin sister of Gil Dixon (Malicious Intent). We’ll have more to say about this novella collection as we draw closer to release day.

Under Fire – Defend and Protect, 3

Y’all. This cover! Talk about love at first sight – I gasped out loud and squealed a little when I saw it. Under Fire releases in March 2023 (I know – so far away!) but it is already available for preorder on several retailers sites. I have them listed on my website, and I’ll add to that list as they go live.

Whew! That was a lot! I hope your summer is filled with love, laughter, and lots of books!

Grace and peace,

    I love your books. They capture my attention & I don’t want to do anything else until I’ve completed the book.
