Who wants free stuff?

Just LOOK at that cover. I CANNOT WAIT.  But in the meantime, I have FREE goodies for you to celebrate this upcoming awesomeness! TELL YOUR FRIENDS!

Short Stories and the Illuminati

A couple weeks ago, I sent you guys a free short story to celebrate Valentine’s Day and I am so happy to share that Crimson Snow has been topping the charts on Amazon!! Number one in short stories for mystery, thriller and suspense, and number three in short stories, literature and fiction. Did you read it? Did you like it? If you loved reading it as much as I loved writing it, pop over to Amazon and Goodreads and leave a review! PRETTY PLEASE? Those reviews let me keep writing and also let me give away the occasional short story. (wink, wink)

The wait is finally over–REPRESSED IS AVAILABLE NOW!

I am so excited to announce that Repressed is NOW AVAILABLE to the public!
