As most of you know, I write Upper YA/New Adult Paranormal Romance, however... back in the beginning of my career, I got a wild hair to branch into the Adult realm with Aradia Awakens (Book one of my Ovialell series.) With that being said...it's a story I love, featuring witches, goddesses, werewolves, vampires and even more sexy supernaturals, and the explicit sex scenes were well received (4.3 average rating). However, since the short-story companions were still NA, it didn't really fit within my brand.
So, after talking with my agent, we've decided to do a re-write of Aradia Awakens, taming the sex scenes and smoothing the flow to meet the rest of my YA/NA brand. And with it, is also releasing a BRAND-NEW short-story novella that takes place between books one and two. (Book two will be coming out later next year.)
2016/2017 held a lot of exciting things for me: Moving back to Colorado then back to Arizona, hitting #1 Bestseller in Historical Fantasy, becoming a columnist for Gliterary Girl Media just to name few. So what's in-store next? The Daughters of Maine (Witches of BlackBrook #2) released on March 7th, 2017, then TS901:Anomaly, a co-authored project I'm working on with the incredible Stacey Rourke, came out on August 1st 2017. After that, Holli's Hellfire (The Women of Purgatory #3 conclusion) is on the docket, then The Sisters of Salem (The Witches of Blackbrook #3 conclusion). Also, Aradia Awakens relaunched on October 31, 2017 as mentioned above, and with it, a bonus surprise release (Dark Seeds - Book 1.5). I've also signed a contact with Ang'dora Productions to write within the Havenwood Falls collective world. My story will be written withing the Legends line and feature two of the three sister witches from my Witches of BlackBrook series.

To kick off 2017, I'll be in Lexington, KY for AUTHORS IN THE BLUEGRASS. (THIS EVENT WAS AMAZING! See photos below). In a last minute twist, I've been scheduled to go to Nashville for the last year of UTOPIA CON. (THIS EVENT WAS FANTASTIC AND EMOTIONAL, BEING THE FINAL ONE. See photos below.) Next up, it's back to St. Louis for PENNED CON on September 29-30th, which is one of my all-time favorite cons. (AGAIN...HAD THE BEST TIME EVER! See photos below.) My final stop for the year is in Anaheim, CA for AUTHORS IN THE OC (LOVED BEING BACK FOR MY SECOND YEAR. See photos below).
