A Milestone


I can't believe that it was 5 years ago today that my very first book--Annabelle Lee--was published by Ellora's Cave Publishing. The time has flown by so quickly. I've learned so much in those five years, it's staggering to think about some days. When I began I had no idea what a chat group was, never thought I'd have a website and didn't even know what a blog was.


This month saw my 40th book published. That makes 32 from Ellora's Cave and 8 from Samhain Publishing. Some days I have to pinch myself to make sure it's real.


I'm hoping the next five years are just as exciting. It's a wonderful thing to be able to make a living doing something I love. I never lose sight of that and I never take it for granted.


Thank you to all the readers out there who've helped make this possible. You've changed my life and made it better.
