Why We Fear the #13 ~ #Fridaythe13th #Friday13


How excited am I that a Friday the 13th is occurring in October, a month that already celebrates the paranormal?  After a long week, I'm gearing up for a Friday night scary movie watch-a-thon to commemorate the event, complete with popcorn and wine.I embraced the number 13 long ago, since it is the date of my birth, and there have been many years (including this one, in January) that my birthday fell on a Friday the 13th!  I do sometimes wonder if being born on the 13th has anything to do with my love of all things spooky, though.  All my novels incorporate some type of supernatural suspense, whether it's a mystery surrounding a haunting (HAUNTED SOULS, GULL HARBOR, and SILVER LAKE) or a que...

#Book Signing + Bingo! #Falmouth #CapeCod Cape Cod Events


Silver Lake is a reunion romance...but Brandy's ghost has a messageto share...a #1 Kindle Bestseller!As a fan of all things spooky, October is one of my favorite months...and, as usual, I have a lot going on this month, both writing-related and personal!  This past weekend had me traveling to Maryland (again), this time for my 30th High School Reunion.  This is something I've planned every five years since graduation, not because I was an officer, but because someone needed to do it, and I think reconnecting with old friends is important.  There's a special bond between people who grew up together, in my opinion, and some of the people attending were in my kindergarten class.     Those are a...

True #Ghost Story ~ #paranormal #haunting #StephenKing #SalemsLot


It's my favorite time of year, and I'm dedicating my blog this month to Halloween-related posts!  I am fascinated by all things spooky, and stories about actual hauntings are particularly eerie.  While I write about ghosts, I’ve never actually seen one, much to my dismay.  But our good friends have had quite a history with a ghost they've dubbed "Granny Griffin".  Granny Griffin happens to reside on the very farm Stephen King depicts in his novel ‘Salem’s Lot, although he changed the name in the book to Griffen farm.  The farm is located in the Maine town of Durham, where King grew up.  His best friend, Randy, lived on the 200-acre dairy farm, which dates back to the 1860s.This isn't the act...

Emotional Roller Coasters + #WritersBlock ~ #amwriting #writerslife


"Writers Write" -- until they don't, or can't, for some reason.  This is a re-post of the story I shared originally on fellow author Casi McLean's blog, as part of her "Authors Bare All" (ABA) series:There are a lot of posts and articles about various tricks and exercises which can be used to combat writer’s block, but this isn’t one of them.  It’s really more my personal story of fighting my way back to writing after walking away from it for a while. A lot of authors are very prolific, turning out several books a year, but I’m not one of them.  It usually takes me an average of a year’s time to write a full-length manuscript.  It takes a lot out of me, too, even though I do derive pleasure ...

Fiction #Writing Course in #Falmouth! #CapeCod #amwriting Cape Cod


Ready to write that novel?I'm thrilled to be teaching a new "Fiction Writing and Publication" course this September, back at The Lawrence School in Falmouth.  For the last few years, I've taught this popular class for both Cape Cod Community College's Center for Corporate and Professional Education and for the Town of Falmouth's Community School in a number of locations, and I've met so many aspiring authors and hopefully helped them on their writing journey.  I've even read some of their finished manuscripts and visited their writing groups, which has been so rewarding.  If you're interested in writing a novel, or exploring publishing options, and you're in the Cape Cod area, consider joini...

My #Books on Display at #Mashpee Commons! Cape Cod #CapeCod #amreading


A few weeks ago, I went into our bank, Cape Cod 5, to set up a new account for a high school reunion I'm planning (the 5th one I've done, and no, I wasn't an officer, I'm just apparently a glutton for punishment), and I noticed the table in the lobby had a display set up for a new salon opening in the Mashpee Commons, the quaint shopping center where the bank is located.  At the time, I thought, "How nice for the bank to help promote the new shop," and I grabbed a little bag of sample products on my way out.The next time I went back in, there was a new display for a different local business, and it clicked for me that the salon promotion wasn't simply part of a temporary shout-out for a new ...

A Steamy First Kiss Excerpt for #InternationalKissingDay! #beachread #Romance


To celebrate International Kissing Day (who knew that was a thing?), I'm going to post an excerpt from GULL HARBOR, my second novel and a #1 Kindle Bestseller on multiple occasions. GULL HARBOR is a reunion romance with a suspenseful ghost story--and the kiss I've chosen happens after Max shows up to fix a broken window the ghost shattered in Claire's temporary summer home.  All she knows is that five years ago, he abandoned her without a hint of an explanation, and he still won't tell her why.  But now that fate has brought them back together, she can't seem to avoid the man who broke her heart... His arm curled around her shoulders.  “Claire, I am so sorry I hurt you,” he said, his voice r...

Connecting with Mrs. Cape Codand signing books for her atShopping & Bingo NightMy life is always a bit crazy, but things have been so unusually hectic since mid-April that I haven't had much time to post here.  But I did want to share some of the pictures from the events I've participated in, now that I have a little more time.  In May and June, I signed books at a monthly Shopping & Bingo Night which helps raise money for different charities.  I met a lot of people, including Mrs. Cape Cod (now Mrs. Massachusetts!), and I was thrilled when she purchased all 4 of my books.  I was even more excited to hear how much she loved GULL HARBOR, the first one she decided to read, the next day on soci...

Signing #Books in #Falmouth! #CapeCod Events


Signing books with my author friends at ourShanty along Hyannis Harbor...a 3 day event! I have one more event coming up to finish off a crazy haze of busy days! For 9 hours a day on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, I signed books and chatted with visitors to Hyannis, as one of the local authors, artists, & crafters showcasing their work in the Hyannis Harbor Artist Shanties.  It was a lot of fun, but very tiring after three long days in the sun.  Then, instead of settling back into my usual routine on Monday morning, I was off to New Hampshire, for a two-day orientation for my son's college.  So many information sessions have my mind reeling.  But as I sit in a dorm room writing this, I fee...
