"Heart-pounding tension" ~ #Audible #Review #ghosts #romance


I'm so excited to be entering the growing audio book market, with my first audiobook releasing a few weeks ago.  Gull Harbor has been a #1 Amazon and Barnes & Noble Bestseller on several occasions, and I'm thrilled this second-chance romance + ghost mystery is now available on Audible and iTunes now, narrated by the very talented Kristin James. The reviews are just starting to come in, and I'm sharing a few lines from a fabulous one from Tome Tender. A little teaser...."For Claire, winning a ghost's trust and helping it move on is part of her gift, having to face the man who shattered her heart is her curse."  What a delicious tag line!  I love it."The secrets buried in Gull Harbor by Kathry...

History of #StPatricksDay + a #Giveaway! Win a #Kindle!


Happy St. Patrick's Day!  This year, St. Patrick's Day is taking on a little more meaning, because I recently got my DNA results back from 23andMe (an awesome birthday gift from my hubby) and I discovered I have a lot more Irish blood in me than I thought!  I did know I had a Sullivan on my father's side of the family a few generations back, but the results say I'm 61% British and Irish.  I've always enjoyed taking part in the holiday fun--wearing green, drinking beer, and serving a traditional Irish meal. You'll notice I said "serving", not "cooking"...cooking is not one of my strengths; however, writing is.  So rather than offering a recipe, I'm dedicating this blog post to some facts abou...

Visiting #vonTrapp Family Lodge, #Vermont #TheSoundofMusic #VT #Travel


I enjoy blogging about a number of topics besides writing and book news, and travel is one of them.  It's always fun to share my experience visiting someplace new, especially if I learn some interesting history or facts while I'm there.The view along the main road through the resortWe spent a few days in Vermont recently, at the lovely von Trapp Family Lodge, and I learned a lot about the family that inspired the iconic "Sound of Music" story.  The movie is one of my all-time favorites, so to stay in a place where the family actually lived was very special, although learning some of the actual facts that aren't reflected correctly in the story threw me for a bit of a loop!  But as our guides...

Now on #Audible! Ghosts + #Romance ~ #1 #Kindle + #Nook Bestseller Gull Harbor


I'm so excited to announce the release of my first audiobook!  I personally love listening to audiobooks, and I'm a member of Audible, which gives me a credit a month to download a new audiobook for a low monthly fee.  In fact, I'm so addicted to listening to books while I'm driving or doing chores, I often have to take advantage of the extra credit sales.  So I am thrilled that my publisher brought Gull Harbor to the audio format, and I'm even more thrilled that I love the talented narrator we chose, because the narration can often make a break a listener's experience.Loved this review by NDPBook Reviews, and at thebottom that is says "yes, 6 stars" -Things that make an author smile!I hope ...

History of St. Valentine's Day ~ Happy #ValentinesDay


Valentine's Day is here, and in the tradition of dedicating my blog to a bit of history about certain holidays and traditions (See New Year's, Saint Nick and Santa Claus, Finding Easter's Date, and Saint Patrick for a few others), I decided to look into the facts behind St. Valentine and the reasons we celebrate love and romance on February 14th.  Turns out, there is quite a bit of conflicting information regarding this particular saint and the holiday named for him. Disclaimer: as always, please keep in mind I am a romance author by trade, not a historian!  The name Valentine comes from the Latin word "valens" which means healthy or strong.  The derivation Valentine was a popular name betwe...

Haunted History of #theDakota ~ #NYC #NewYork #Travel #paranormal #ghosts


View of the Dakota from Central ParkBecause I have a strong fascination with all things spooky, I tend to seek out haunted places to visit when we go on trips.  When we spent a day in Paris during a London trip, I insisted on exploring the Catacombs.  We also spent a day at the Tower of London, which is surely home to some restless spirits.  In Maryland, I've explored the abandoned Glenn Dale TB Hospital.  Closer to home, I've taken tours of the Old Jail (oldest wooden jail in the entire country), and haunted locations around Barnstable Village. More recently, between Christmas and New Year's this winter, we went to New York City to spend some time with our best friends again...with our fami...
