After struggling with a strange condition that made it difficult for me to spend time on computer, I'm happy to say that I've improved enough to get back to rewrites on Always Dreaming of You. This condition has been the worst thing for a writer, but now that I'm doing better, I can't wait to finish Always and No More Mr. Nice Girl, plus there's this humorous murder mystery that I've been plotting in my head...
So glad to be back at work on my romantic comedies!

For those of you who are waiting for Always Dreaming of You, I wrote a blog post about what's going on. Please keep sending those nice emails. They help keep me working on the tough days!

Author Christie Craig asked me to guest blog, so I decided to share some of my secret "weight loss tips" with the masses. Haha!

I had to take a screen shot today, when I found both my romantic comedies in the 1,000's ranking-wise on Amazon. I've had an awesome couple of months. People keep buying my books and I've gotten so many nice emails from readers (and, so far, no nasty ones--fingers crossed). Honestly, I never expected this kind of response. I thought I'd have a much smaller niche audience that I'd have to grow reader-by-reader over years. Thanks so much to all of you!

Mini-excerpt from Don't Make Me Make You Brownies (Avail. Aug. 8):
When Abbie came out of the house a few moments later, the two women were chatting in the driveway. She started to walk toward them until—
Bam! There was a movement across the street and her eyes were transfixed on what could only be described as…a man.
Not just any man. A man’s man, manly, man—complete with broad shoulders and muscles glistening in the sun as his hot Houston sweat trickled over them. She stopped and watched him push a quiet lawnmower onto the driveway. He reached down to pick up a pair of hedge clippers, and she was treated to the sight of his tight round butt attached to thighs of steel.
And when she thought she couldn’t get any luckier, he turned back in her direction, took off his baseball cap and pulled his shirt up to wipe the sweat from his forehead. She felt like Max had looked a few minutes before.
Everything went into slow motion. Across-the-Street Guy was nothing but rippling, smooth muscle all the way up to his chest. Abbie thought she caught sight of a nipple and imagined rubbing her tongue over it.
Mmmm… Who’s your mama?
Out of the corner of her eye, Abbie noticed her two companions looking at her. They turned to see what she was staring at. “Hey, Rick!” They called as they waved casually to him. He smiled and waved back.
Could he be any more perfect? He had just enough of everything in the right places without too much extra to make him silly-looking like those body builders at her gym. And what happened to that “Fattest City in America” thing?
Abbie’s mind raced, which was nothing new, except that all the questions roving through it were on one subject. What was the story on this Rick guy? Where’d he get such a nice bod? The gym? Genetics? Could yard work really do that for you?
Maybe it was his job. A manly-man job to be sure. A fire-man or police-man? But since when had she found those kinds of guys hot, anyway? The cops were an extension of the oppressive government—at least that’s what her dad always said.
Oppress me, Across-the-Street Rick.
