You’ve found my website with all the fun happenings in my world.
SCUTTLEBUTT, is where I give you the latest–either in my publishing news, gossip, or romance obsessions–or even a mix of all three.
Speaking of news–my group blog has a book coming out. THE LADY SMUT BOOK OF DARK DESIRES is an anthology that includes ‘Sexsomnia’, a shivery, super sexy paranormal novella. I’m excited to announce that this book will be available October 30th from Harper Impulse. Pre-oder SEXSOMNIA here at B&N or here at Amazon and learn more about it on my BOOKS page.
LADY SMUT.COM is the page where I blog every Thursday and post fun links on Saturday.
LOVE FEST is the page where you can find out about the romance panels I organize yearly for VIRGINIA FESTIVAL OF THE BOOK in Charlottesville, VA.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME: How did I start writing romances? I grew up in a family of women who traded large brown grocery bags full of them. Naturally, as a young teen I started diving into the bag myself. The rest is history.
Speaking of history: I love historical romance. I worshipped Georgette Heyer to the point where I secretly wrote out 130 Heyer-esque romance plots (just for fun). While I hope to write historical romances one day, at a certain point I discovered the brave new world of Victoria Dahl and J.R. Ward.
Plot driven romances with super feisty sex are my ideal. I adore that point where the trust between hero and heroine kindles into scorching hot sex and total surrender.
