News Flash x 2!

Love Somebody Like You is a finalist for a Romance Writers of America’s® prestigious RITA® award for long contemporary romance!

We’ve added information pages for Ring of Fire, the 7th Caribou Crossing Romance under my Susan Fox pen name.

Sexy romance that’s passionate, heartwarming, and fun!

May 15, 2016

I can’t believe how quickly this year is passing! It’s an early spring here in the Pacific Northwest, with all the flowers blooming a couple of weeks ahead of time. We’ve even had a few days that feel like July. I’m loving it!

This month I am looking forward to attending the Word on the Lake Writers Festival, May 20-22 in scenic Salmon Arm, BC, where I’ll be a speaker and also doing blue pencil critiques. I haven’t seen that part of the province in ages and will be driving there, taking my camera and hoping for good weather.

I’m also anticipating the release of Ring of Fire, the seventh Caribou Crossing Romance (pen name: Susan Fox) at the end of May. It’ll be in print and e-book format—and hopefully the audiobook edition should come along in the near future. I’ll have some guest blogs happening early in June and will post links on the Events page when I get them—and I’ll also post them on my Facebook page.

The first Blue Moon Harbor book, Fly Away with Me, is 99% done. I’ve set it aside for a few weeks and then will print it out and do a final read-through before submitting it. I’m just getting started on the second title, and also working on a proposal for two more books in the series.

I’ve not only been writing, but reading a lot. I decided that I’d like to read all the other titles that finaled in the long contemporary romance category of the RITA contest. I highly recommend every one! I’m honored to be in their company. Here’s a list of all the finalists in all categories.

And, last but not least, congratulations to this month’s opinion poll contest winner. Amanda P from Burnaby, BC, receives an autographed copy of her choice of my books, plus a blue poppy magnetized notepad from The Butchart Gardens. A new contest is running and I’m asking about favorite holiday venues.

Happy reading! And happy last month of spring.

Inn-owner Dave Cousins is known as the nicest—and loneliest—guy in town. Dare he risk his damaged heart again, on a free-spirited drifter? Like the wild goose tattooed on her shoulder, Cassidy Esperanza goes wherever the wind takes her, yet she has to admit there’s something seductive about Caribou Crossing—and especially Dave.

Fly Close to the Sun

Lawyer Kieran Bridge’s carefully planned life has unraveled. Distraught, she travels to Crete—the island she and her deceased father had always been drawn to—in search of the key to her future. She finds far more than she’d bargained for: a country that awakens her senses and emotions, and a man who challenges her as she’s never been challenged before. She feels an inexplicable connection to Dr. Stefanos Dimitrakis, a fugitive accused of murdering his uncle. When Stefanos insists he’s innocent, Kieran’s instincts tell her to believe him—but in the past her judgment has failed her. How can she now believe in a bond that defies reason?
