An #Author Interview at Rad Reader Reviews! #Romance #Suspense and #writingtips #RomanticSuspense


One fateful night tore them apart...will they get a second chance before a killer strikes?A few months ago, Rad Reader Reviews read my Romantic Suspense novel Dangerous Currents and asked to do an author interview, to which I enthusiastically replied I'd be thrilled!  They asked a number of really in-depth questions about the plot, characters, writing in general, and we even both contributed our picks for actors to portray the characters should the story ever hit the screen (a girl can dream, right?) and our thoughts on songs that capture the story!I'm sharing a link to the interview below, but warning...there are a few plot twist spoilers.  So if you haven't read this steamy second-chance r...

Bedroom Makeover ~ From 90s Mauve to #Farmhouse! #FixerUpper Cape Cod #Remodel #Design


Jinx likes the new duvetThis blog is usually dedicated to book-related things, as writing and reading are my passions.  But I also post about some of my other hobbies and interests, like exploring new places, fitness, and gardening, and for the past six months, my main focus has been on remodeling our master bedroom, a space that hasn't been updated since the early 1990s when we moved in.  Decorating doesn't come easy to me, but research does...so I've been combing the internet for inspiration and pinning pictures to imitate for what seems like forever.  Like many people, we're big fans of the HGTV show Fixer Upper, and we wanted to shed our stale mauve and floral decor and do a sort of farm...

Visiting #Montreal + Taking Our Own Ghost Tour! #Canada #travel #paranormal #vacation


According to the friendly bartender, most ghost sightingsoccur in the upstairs bar, which was closed that night.  ButI snapped pictures to see if anything showed up!I love seeing new places, and as an author of ghost mysteries--and a life-long fan of all things paranormal--I often try to visit some local haunted sites.  Sometimes inspiration for a new book strikes, like when I visited the Old Jailhouse in Barnstable Village here on Cape Cod and came up with the plot for Haunted Souls.  A few weekends ago, my husband and I traveled to Montreal, Canada, for a wedding.  I'd never been, and it's a beautiful city!  Friday and Saturday were primarily taken up with wedding activities, but we made s...

My #Book Made Cape Cod IN SEASON Magazine! Recommended Beach Reads #CapeCod #amreading #RomanticSuspense


Aside from writing, I work at a gym, and a few weeks ago, members started asking if I'd seen that I was in a local magazine.  I hadn't--in fact, I had no idea what they were talking about.  I tried to google myself but got no recent results.  But then they began bringing in the copies for me, and it was true!  The June edition of Cape Cod's IN SEASON magazine had an article entitled "Lazy, Hazy Days of Summer Reading" and the author, Christine Lynch, asked three local bookstore owners and two librarians for their recommendations of the best beach reads of the summer.  To quote from the article, "here are some hand-picked suggestions from outstanding sources.  Three of the Cape's quality book...

#CoverReveal! New Look for SILVER LAKE ~ Ghost #Mystery Reunion #Romance #paranormal #books


A haunting, an old flame, and secrets from the past...My first novel, Silver Lake, has had a pretty interesting journey.  I spent years thinking about it, 3 1/2 years actually writing it, a year querying and revising (5 times!), and then nine months after I received a publishing contract (woo hoo!) going through edits and production.  When you sign on with a publisher, you do so with the understanding they will make changes and they will design the cover.  The very first cover I received for Silver Lake I absolutely adored...but when I showed it off on social media, another author with my pub pointed out it was very similar to hers (cover artists often use the same stock images).  It was dec...

Game of Thrones Characters A-Z #AtoZChallenge #GoT #GameofThrones


Game of Thrones is coming back!  To say I’m excited is an understatement.  This series of books has long been a favorite, and watching the show has become a treasured family event in a stage where convincing two teenage boys to spend time with me can be difficult.  A few years ago, I did a GoT version of “TheA-Z Blog Challenge”, something many authors participate in during the month of April.  The idea is to post a new topic every day, using the alphabet for inspiration, but instead, I made one big post highlighting one GoT character for each letter of the alphabet. It has been so popular, I decided to do it again with a new list.  I tried to find characters included in both the books and th...

"Mystery, Intrigue, Heartache, #Romance, + Suspense...Had me up all night" New #Book #Review! #amreading


One fateful night tore them apart...will they get a second chancebefore a killer strikes?Not many things make me smile more than hearing a reader couldn't put my book down and stayed up late to keep reading...I love when I find a book that does that to me, even if I don't love how I feel in the morning!  But we readers know how amazing it is to fall into a story so hard we just have to know what happens next.  So when I hear that about my own books, I do a happy dance for my characters, because they are absolutely real to me, and I've managed to make them, and their fate, real to others. I'm linking the entire fabulous review from Sincerely Karen Jo here. A few of my favorite quotes: "Kathry...
