So much has happened since “Fools Rush In” came out in December!

I've been on the road, promoting and enjoying the spotlight of being a new author. Left Coast Crime, Seattle, was incredible. We had great weather, I was surrounded by my friends from the Crime and Suspense ezine group, and I met many new authors as well as reconnecting with friends. The werewolf who showed up at the paranormal mystery panel was unmasked as Murdoch Hughes on the last day of the conference. As you can see by the photos, it was a great party! We're getting excited about seeing each other at LCC Denver in '08, and the big island, HAWAII, in '09!

The anthology NEVER SAFE was safely launched at Coalesce Bookstore in Morro Bay in March. The anthology, put out by Seven Sisters Press, contains two of my stories (one under an AKA—can you guess which one?).
