Projects for 2015


I survived the holidays. True, I didn't quite finish the to-do list (no cards this year, and I did not bake any homemade Christmas cookies), but the tree was trimmed, the kids were happy on Christmas morning, so...SUCCESS!

And now I have to start my crazy 2015 schedule. I won't bore you with the ridiculous to-do list, but I will give you a quickie overview of my three main projects. Here we go...


1. A TASTE OF HEAVEN


I am super excited for this book! It's a full-length women's fiction about a 47-year old widow who is struggling with her identity after the death of her husband. She enters a professional cooking competition as an amateur, and meets her match with Elliot Adamson, Scottish chef from hell. Or heaven. Depends on your perspective.

Time to make haggis sexy. Yeeeeee hawwwwww!

Coming Spring 2015

2. THE SORRENTO PASSION SERIES   


This will be my first multi-author series, and I am thrilled with the concept and the enthusiasm of my fellow authors. After spending a year totally immersed in Harlequin Presents, a story idea popped into my head and wouldn't go away. It has all the glamour and beauty of Sorrento, Italy, but of course (since I just can't help myself), it also has a twist on the traditional series concept. A rich and powerful Italian businessman falls in love with a sweet and unassuming American artist. What happens when the heroine has the chance of a lifetime...to be mentored by the famous Italian artist Manuel Castaldo?

Sorrento Passion is a four-part series, self-published. The other authors participating are the very talented and creative Lexxi Callahan, Ros Clarke, and Bobbi Ruggiero. This is a great group of writers, with eclectic interests and writing styles. Lexxi pens the uber-sexy Southern Style Series, Ros writes a wide array of fiction, always with her signature UK-flair and gorgeous style of writing, and Bobbi, a finalist for the First Kiss Contest, has a fresh, modern voice and an intense interest in rock stars. What a kick-ass combination!

This promises to be a series filled with drama, passion, heartbreak and of course, happy endings. I will post more information later in the year.

Release Date: TBA

3. SWEET CINDERELLA (KLAUS BROTHERS #4)


I can't believe the forth installment of the Klaus Brothers Series will be released this upcoming holiday season (2015). Holy Christmas Tree! We are finally going to find out what makes Mr. Ice-Cold Gregor Klaus get hot-under-the-collar. And I have a sneaking suspicion it might be a lovely woman in green satin (Hannah, who was was introduced in SWEET ADVENTURE). This book will not only follow the romantic story of Gregor and Hannah, but will also focus a lot on family, which is one of my favorite Christmas themes.

Coming Christmas 2015

More stuff coming up this year...an updated website, a newsletter (the anti-newsletter newsletter...hee hee!), and soon my books will also be available on iBooks (Apple).

What are your plans for 2015? Anything exciting? LET'S GO TEAM!
