My new novel for ages 13 to 113, EverWarm has arrived and is filled with vampires, werewolves, and humans. It is the first in a new series called Young Supernaturals of New York. It is a clean, sweet YA romance focused on a teen couple that meets in front of a store's holiday display window. In one night, their lives change forever. This is my 11th novel.
Lady Fallon's Dragons, also for ages 13 to 113, the first in a series of dragon books is now in Kindle and Amazon Print, Nook, Kobo, Smashwords, and Scribd so far. There is a clean, sweet YA romance in it, but otherwise, it's a very dragony fantasy adventure. A wondrous tale of contemporary dragons and a young woman fighting for her life. This is my 10th book.
The Vampire with a Blanket of Stars, Book 3 is a steamy vampire adventure romance novel set during WWII Romania and in the present day. It is the 3rd book in the Arnhem Knights of New York Series. The other books are Vampire King of New York and Vampire Princess of New York.
That series is a spin-off from my first series Vampires in Manhattan, which includes When Love Survives, The Stormy Love Life of Laura Cordelais, A Vampire for Christmas, and Vampire in the Basement.
Mrs. Bright's Tea Room is a steampunk swashbuckling romance! Very steamy! Poseidon's Catch is a mythology romance also very steamy.
As you can see below I'm a diversified author, crossing over from Science Fiction and Fantasy. I'm still writing that too, but the full novels in that genre are not completed yet. I also have a yen to write a graphic novel. Why? I can't help myself.
I am a writer and editor. Being an Associate Editor for Space and Time Magazine is a passion of mine. Being a writing teacher for over twenty-five years, I teach workshops from time to time at conventions. I am an active member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA). What does active mean? In that context, it means professional status. As a paranormal romance author, I am a member of the Romance Writers of America (RWA) and earned membership into RWA PAN (Published Authors Network).

Ah, my past.
