If you had to be trapped in a TV show for a month, which show would you choose?

Right now I'd have to say Psych. Because they always have snacks and they keep things light. And who doesn't need a little silliness right now?

Although, the more I think about it, I've always wanted to be part of the Scooby Gang... #BuffyForever

Bad Boys are Impossible to Resist!

I loved bad boy Lucas Leighton so much that he appeared in two of my steamy "Me" stories, plus he has his very own too-hot-to-handle book, Ice Flambé...


Who are some of your favorite fictional bad boys?

Dairy-free and Delicious!


Before coronavirus changed life as we know it (and resulted in empty store shelves), I discovered a recipe for milk-free/egg-free pancakes because the only times I seem to have milk and eggs on hand is when I buy it for a specific recipe. I wanted a handy-dandy recipe I could whip up when a pancake mood struck me, using stuff I've always got lounging around in the pantry. Anywho, turns out I love the dairy-free pancakes even better than any other ones I've tried.

Now that ingredients are sparse at the grocery store, I thought I'd share a couple of my dairy-free favorites so you can enjoy them when the craving strikes, too!

Make extra and freeze them to microwave later!

We devoured these tasty cookies!
Luckily, I managed to get a photo before they disappeared...

Quarantunes ~ Music Playlists to Inspire You

self-isolation music playslist social distancing self quarantine songs

Throughout the years, I've posted playlists to go with some of the books I've published because music often plays a big role in the inspiration process. Certain characters listen to specific music and sometimes a song's lyrics can sum up the theme of a book better than I ever could.

While writing Ice Flambé, it was impossible not to think of Lucas and Morgana while Jared Leto belted out hauntingly beautiful lyrics for 30 Seconds to Mars. I listened to Agnes Obel while writing Island Ice and even mentioned the song "Smoke & Mirrors" in the book. "Let Go" by Safetysuit could be the theme song for Home Ice. Learning how to let go was a main theme in the book and I find it funny that I heard the song long after I wrote the book.

So anyway, I thought it'd be fun to share some of those songs with you on Spotify where you can listen for yourself just how moving the power of music can be.

Here is the link to the playlists on Spotify and you can also click on the book covers below...



I've also included a few of my personal favorites...
