Books and such

I launched my first self-published book, Haunt My Heart, on January 5.

I had a little launch party at Hebrew’s Coffee in Springfield simultaneously with my online Facebook party.

It was a blast! Hectic but fun.

I even got to enjoy a delicious coffee treat.

If you’d like to get your own copy of Haunt My Heart, you can find it on AMAZON here in ebook and print.

Haunt 3D small jpgA Civil War soldier dies to save his men. Can he find true love to live again?

Sarah Knight has a job she’s good at, a quirky BFF, and a boyfriend who’s bad for her. When Sarah unearths a Civil War artifact on a ghost hunt at Chatham Manor, she brings home more than a souvenir

Lieutenant James “Tanner” Dawson fought for the Union, working as a supernatural liaison for his Major General in a secret Masonic offset called the Brothers of Peril. When he’s hexed by a witch, he learns the only way to save his men is to die himself. But death is not the end. Awakening 150 years later, he knows if he wants to be corporeal again, he has to find true love to break the hex—a task no easier in 21st century than it was in the 19th.

Zombie Walk 2014

IMG_7119 (768x1024)

A couple of weekends ago, I participated in the Zombie Walk Lebanon 2014. This was the 5th annual, but the first for me. The theme was 50’s Sock Hop and there was a dance afterward. Clearly I didn’t follow the theme nor did I attend the zombie dance, but the walk was awesome!???????? SONY DSC

???????? IMG_7165 (1010x1024)
And here is some of my best shambling in action!

Want to walk? The next walk is July 18, 2015 and the theme is Hollywood. Like their page at Zombie Walk Lebanon so you don’t miss out.

Know what else you won’t want to miss? Reap & Repent.


Reap & Repent blurb

Reap & Repent final revised (647x1024)They see death. Can they share a life?

Ruth Scott can read the energy of every person she meets. Then she meets Deacon Walker. She can see his ice-blue eyes, his black hair, and his gorgeous face. But this beautiful stranger has no aura.

Deacon is just as unsettled by Ruth—and, having spent more than two hundred years ushering souls to Purgatory, Deacon is seldom shocked by anything. As he helps Ruth to understand her true nature, she awakens desires that he decided long ago a Reaper can’t afford.

A demon invasion forces Deacon to confront the darkness in his own past even as he fights to save the human souls he’s charged to protect. When he’s taken captive, his first concern is for Ruth. But Ruth just might be able to save herself—and the Reaper she can’t live without—if she can learn to wield her newfound powers.

Firecracker Float

Two days and twenty river miles. Great kayaking on the Eleven Point. Hardly any boats on the water even though it was July 4th weekend.

IMG_6942 (1024x768) (800x600)We slept on the river bank.

Grace loved filtering water. She filled all of our bottles several times.

A Medley Mashup of June Highlights

After vacation, June just flew by. I know we did more than this, but here are the highlights.

IMG_6842 (800x600)

Bryon helped Grace build her very own flower bed. Sorry about the thumb.

IMG_6882 (800x600)

Niangua baseball.

IMG_6883 (600x800)

Grace got to go to Drury University’s Summer Quest program and this year she got into the vet camp. She loved it. They got to visit Grant Avenue Pet Hospital.

IMG_6884 (600x800)

On the last day of vet camp, the attendees got to bring a pet. Grace wanted to bring Belle, our chocolate lab, but I said, NO WAY. Belle’s a maniac. Rosie has no idea what a leash is and neither of the cats are travel friendly. That left Rex the guinea pig. Rex was a big hit!

IMG_6886 (800x600)

Grace is in the pool every chance she gets, which means Bryon and I have to be out there too. Bryon loves swimming with her. I love sitting on the deck reading a book…or trying to read a book. Here’s one example of how it goes.

Grace: How will you know if I’m drowning if you’re reading a book?
Me: You’ll stop talking for at least thirty seconds, which will alert me that something is terribly wrong.


IMG_6887 (800x600)


I got to see Randall Shreve and the Sideshow downtown.



And Bryon and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary.

Reap & Repent final revised (647x1024) (404x640)


Oh, and my first novel, Reap & Repent released as a single title. There was that 😀

Front Page News


In May I made the front page of my hometown newspaper.

10291849_10152023693192553_3198162815896123125_nBHFP front page


You can read the entire thing here if you want bhfp_a1-1web and page two here bhfp_a2-2web .

There could be worse reasons to make the front page 😀
