I was rather heartbroken when I saw how the Kennett Library in Pennsylvania held its 3rd Annual ‘Bad Romance’ Event. There they made fun of Romance books/authors. I’m so tired of people calling what I read and write “porn”, “smut” or whatever ridiculous name they come up with. To the point where I have actually been considering quitting as a Romance Author. I have to stop myself from verbally cussing people out in my day to day life when they say something about me writing “porn”. It’s LIFE people. DRAMA. You live it Every. Single. Day. I was led to this genre by watching soap operas with my Nana. Would you call those porn? Would you look at your mom or grandmother and say, “Well you’ve had kids so you must have been into some real life porn, huh?” NO. They lived a LIFE. One with love, up and downs, possibly heartbreak. Trials and tribulations that you can’t possibly fathom surviving through. So, to those who feel the need to mock what I love to read and write, what my friends and peers love to read and write, kudos to you for being such a big person that you feel comfortable enough putting other people down. You must be “oh-so-great” that you feel qualified to cast those stones. Let me buy you a vibrator because if you’re so scandalized by our books then your love life probably sucks.

🎅 Merry Christmas y’all! 🤶
The Midnight Coven presents:
On Samhain night the covens gather to share their power and celebrate. It’s a time for pure magic. A night of unbridled witchcraft. But there’s a dark force waiting in the wings, determined to curse every witch at the gathering, and when she does, no one escapes.
Face their darkest fear. Survive or die.
These are the stories of thirteen witches cursed at the one place they should have been safe. Join the coven and learn their fates.
✨ Wicked Witch ✨
Fauna Calpurnius was a witch on a mission.
Or several of them, you might say.
She needed to kill her evil father, help her best friend Liv find her magic mirror, and secure her own freedom once and for all.
There were few options in the dire situation known as her life.
If Fauna didn’t kill her father, the head of their Coven, or his sadistic henchman Hannibal, she would die without ever experiencing freedom. And if she didn’t help her friend Liv find her magic mirror, then an evil witch named Thea would smash it in to a million pieces. Thereby, killing Liv, the only friend she’d ever known.
Could it get worse than that?
Some people really shouldn’t ask that question.
Fauna Calpurnius being one of them.

You know how when you least expect it Murphy’s Law kicks into effect and life happens in ways you were not expecting it to? Yeah… that’s me this past month and a half. I got a new day job working at my local newspaper. I love it. It’s fast paced and awesome. I was supposed to be one of two sales executives. My third week into the job the other sales lady quit. In her defense she had been offered pretty much her dream job – so who could begrudge her that? But it meant everything was landing on my shoulders and that was a lot to take on. So I had to pick up an extra day in the week for working my day job and for a little while my writing time was pushed to a big fat zero. I’m now starting to stabilize at my job and my writing time is coming back to me. Yippee!
If that wasn’t enough on my plate my oldest Minion hurt herself a few months ago. We’ve been trying to take care of it but it wasn’t going away so we took her to the doctor. It was her IT Band in her lower back and hips. She now has physical therapy appointments.
On top of all of that I am a “Mom First” person. My kids are always #1 in my life. We’re smack dab in the middle of Marching Band season and there are practices, football games and weekend competitions. The good news is there is only about a month of that left!
So I told you this very long story so you would understand WHY I had to speak to the Head Witches In Charge at the Midnight Coven and ask them for an extension on my Cursed Coven story, Wicked Witch. They were very understanding and gracious enough to let me push back my release date by a month. Wicked Witch will now be releasing on November 24th.
It’s still a part of the Midnight Coven’s Cursed Coven Series… just brewing in the cauldron a little slower than everyone else. 😉
I want to thank everyone in advance for their understanding. Hopefully you won’t get mad and decide to go all Salem witch trials on me and burn me at the stake. And to show good faith that my witch and all of her snark is coming… I give you Junkies the very first peek at my heroine Fauna. Those fingers of hers are dangerous.

I get to brag a little today.
One of Grizzly (aka my husband)’s 911 dispatchers received a national award today for her excellent work and reaction time during a call that took place last year.
A man had murdered his wife, told his niece what he had done, and then also told the niece he was headed to his son’s school to pick the boy up. That dispatcher immediately notified the school of a potential shooter situation and told them to go on lock down. And they did – just in time. That man showed up to pick up his son and was denied entrance. The murderer then went back to his van and pulled his gun on the responding officers. He was shot and killed.
What Grizzly didn’t know until after he was on scene, and the murderer was deceased, was that our Oldest Minion was in that school for a band festival/competition. Thanks to that dispatcher, my baby is alive today. I can’t thank her enough. She deserves that award and so much more – but if you tell her she’s a hero she will tell you that she was just doing her job.
Remember your 911 Dispatchers folks. They’re first responders who don’t get recognition nearly enough. #GoldLine
