I’m thrilled that CATTITUDE, the first book I published, is one of the top 20 pet books. CATTITUDE was the first book I published, and I loved that book. Loved the attitude of the cat. Loved the woman she turned into. Loved the cat the original woman turned into. Loved the hero, his sister, his brother… Loved so much about it, and I’m happy it’s staying in that top 20.

The collage of the top 20 is below, and you can hop over to Vanessa Morgan’s blog to find out the details that will give you the chance to win all these lovely books about pets. And there are some great ones!

The week before last I went to the Writers Police Academy in Appleton, Wisconsin, at the Fox Valley Technical College and Public Safety Training Center for 4 days. It was the best workshop/conference/learning experience that I’ve been to. When I asked other authors their favorites, they all named one of the hands-on classes/workshops. Like shooting guns. Or going into a “fire house.” (I did that one.) I think it’s because it’s more like kids playing than sitting in a classroom.

As for the regular classroom type, my favorite was the coroner. Les James made it fun – and she made it heartbreaking. Most of all, she made it real, not clinical, with a lot of stories. My favorite way to learn something is through a story.

As an extra, there was a very cool canine demonstration one night. I plan on writers going back next year.

Even if you’re not an author, what would be your favorite workshops in a police academy? What would you like to see or learn?

It’s release day for Truth About Love & Murder and Rules of Love & Murder. I’m so very excited about both of this new series! Here’s the info about them:

The truth is that life is uncertain.

Meg Quinn hasn’t been to war, but her father has, and it changed their lives for the worse — and for the better. Now she has a sharp tongue and a mind to match … and she doesn’t trust easily. The best person she knows is losing a fight with death, and Meg is guardian of her friend’s seven-year-old son.

Easy MacLean, the co-guardian, is Meg’s dying friend’s brother. The former Marine has been hibernating in his Colorado mountain home, and Meg lets him know that he needs to be by his sister’s side in Milwaukee now.

Easy is attracted to his sister’s clever friend, but life gets complicated when he gets involved in a search for a missing veteran. After living alone with his rescue dog for so long, Easy and his dog are now sharing a home with a beautiful woman, a boy, and a cat. Even as he watches his sister die a little each day, he’s finding out the truth about life and love … and murder. (You can read an excerpt here.)

Some days life is wonderful. Other days it’s murder.

Former Marine August Reyes is home for good, haunted by images of bloodshed. He meets up again with Elle Styles, the girl he’s never been able to forget.

When August was eight and Elle was six, she changed his and his mother’s lives before she and her widowed mother left the Wisconsin vacation town. Twenty-two years later, she’s returned to Trouble Bay with her four-year-old daughter, but they’re only staying for six weeks. Elle and August are different people now. He sees life through darkness, and she sees it through light. And light and dark don’t mix well.

Someone else was changed by Elle when she was young. A woman who lives by her own rules. Rule Nr. Two—Don’t let anyone cheat you—is in play now. And this might lead to Rule Nr. Three: Don’t kill anyone … unless killing is necessary.

The town of Trouble Bay is about to live up to its name. Life there can be murder… Even when you’re falling in love. (You can read an excerpt here.)

Rules of Love and Murder-Amazon_333x500I’ve been neglecting my blog, but I’m back now and plan to blog at least once a week. It’s been an odd year, with some or ups and downs. Including a computer crash. Still, I managed to get a lot of work done, and I’ve started a new series, Love & Murder. Truth About Love & Murder (book 1) and Rules of Love & Murder (book 2) are on pre-order for July 20. I’m VERY happy about both of these books. I started out in my r, writing short stories for print mystery magazines. I was addicted to mysteries. I read them like I eat chocolate now.

Then I was sick one day, and my sister-in-law came to my house and dropped off a bag full of romances.

Now I had another addiction. It’s still chocolate,  but it came with new and delicious flavors.


So why not combine the flavors? And add a little twist. In fact, add a few more twists. And it’s not light chocolate, either. It’s 70% dark (what I actually eat – though, sadly, if I don’t have 70%, I won’t turn down a lesser percentage). But I would say the Love & Murder books are at the 70% level of suspense and mystery and romance.

What they have in common is military veterans, people in emotional pain, people trying to get through the bad parts of their lives to happy parts, people dead (it is suspense!), more than one person who might be a little crazy, strong female characters, and even a wry sense of humor. These books are set in Wisconsin – the first mostly in the Milwaukee area, and the second and third in Door County, which is known as the Cape Cod of the Midwest.

I’m very happy about these two books. Truth About Love & Murder is on sale for the first week, only $2.99! I’ve gotten great feedback from readers. I just want to babble on about it, but click on the links and read the blurbs and the excerpts – and then pre-order!

I will be putting them up in print, too.

It feels good to be back. How are you feeling?

I’m in a good place right now. I have most of my tax info together (I’m just waiting for a few things before having them done). I finished the first draft of my book, and did 3 revisions already. It’s darker than my usual, but I like it a lot – enough that I decided to make it a series. I expect to do at least 3 more, and I already have ideas for my next couple of books. I’ll probably still have a dog and/or cat in a book – just because I like dogs and cats. But the animals won’t be a major part of the story. They will matter, though. Pets always matter.

We’ve switched it up a bit at Magical Musings, too, adding a Friday Finds on Fridays, in which we share free books, 99 cent books, specials, contests and books we recommend. If you’d like to submit a book that fits any of this, we have a submission form. We’ve also added new bloggers, including Zoe Dawson, who’s in a couple of box sets with me. :)

Last year, I was in a bit of a funk. Bad things were happening to friends – and my dog (who we still miss). So it’s good to feel happy again. Life is good!

How are you feeling?
