Trivia Queen–#MFRWAuthor Blog Challenge

This week in the MFRW blog challenge we are talking about useless talents. It probably doesn’t get much more useless than trivia (which happens to be my superpower).

qimg_1535645907930That’s right. I am a trivia junkie. I am a multi-time champion of various trivia related events–think Geeks Who Drink and cruise trivia (I owned our Disney cruise this summer).

I’m not saying I know everything–that’s for dang sure. I’m weak on sports trivia and most political trivia (unless it’s the chronological order of presidents or British monarchy). I’m almost unbeatable at movies (especially classics) and Continue reading “Trivia Queen–#MFRWAuthor Blog Challenge”


Release Day | The Mate (Fire’s Edge #0.5)


A FREE Prequel to The Boss


Maddie Thompson’s life just fell down a rabbit hole. Finding out she’s a dragon shifter was one thing—she never quite fit into the human world, and this new reality feels…strangely right. However, discovering the next step is to choose a mate, and if she chooses wrong she’ll die, is the other side of crazy. Especially when she already left a piece of her heart with someone who Continue reading “Release Day | The Mate (Fire’s Edge #0.5)”


Collections of Collections | #MFRWAuthor Blog Challenge

Everyone should have at least one collection. There is nothing like that moment when you find a precious new piece to add to it. It also gives friends and family something–not only as a good gift, but as a reminder.

Every time I see Americana anything, I think of my mother, who taught American literature for most of her career and hosts a big 4th of July party every year. I think of Judy, my college boyfriend’s mom, every year I get out my “Santa’s Village” Christmas town (miniatures), because she gave me the first piece.

Make Me Shudder #MFRWAuthor Blog Challenge

Irrational Fears… This topic feels timely because I just gave one of my heroes one of my irrational fears.
Honestly, I have several. I think most people do. The Indiana Jones movies tap into several. So do the Hobbit and LOTR movies. I bet you’re wondering what they are now.
Well, I’ll tell you…

Where Did Shifters Come From?

***Originally posted on Paranormal Romantics.
I have a confession to make… I’m obsessed with shifters.
TheBoss-Teaser#5Oh, that wasn’t a secret? Lol. Granted every single one of my series (SvaturaShadowcat NationLegendary Consultants) involve shifters. And my upcoming new release–THE BOSS–is about a team of enforcers who happen to be dragon shifters (coming 9/24).
I love paranormal creatures of all kinds, but shifters hold a special place in my heart. The power to take on an animal (or sometimes other) form and be able to claim those abilities and characteristics is something I find fascinating. Maybe it’s because, as a mere human, my only super power comes from creating worlds in my mind and putting them on paper. How much cooler would it be to live those worlds? To run with wolves or fly with dragons?

My Playlist for Life | #MFRWAuthor Blog Challenge

Unlike with movies (Star Wars!), I don’t have one theme song that is my life anthem. Not really.

I think maybe this is because I love a ton of different types of music and so to pick just one would be impossible. Plus, music is the soundtrack to my life. I often wish I had a boom box so I could play music in certain moments. Lol.

So instead of sharing my one song, I’ll share the playlist of my “Happy Songs.” A lot of these songs I’ve had on various mix tapes and mix CDs for years. This summer I finally started building a list in my Amazon Music. It’s still a work in progress as I remember more things to add.

Author Spotlight: Character Interview with Mystic Rayne

Today I’m so excited to have Mystic Rayne, one of the characters from Tena Stetler’s latest release, An Angel’s Unintentional Entanglement. Please welcome her!


An Angel's Unintentional Entanglement - not preorder (1)Morning Abigail. I’m Mystic Rayne. Tena is running late and Caden is—“ She paused for a moment. “Indisposed. So I’m here to fill in. If that’s okay.”

“That’s fine. I’ll tweak the questions and we’ll go on.”

Abigail: “Tell us about you.”

Mystic grinned raising one eyebrow. “I’m a Bureau of Indian Affairs Agent assigned to the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming. Well really I work in a contract position now.”

Abigail: “Wow, that must be an interesting job.”

“Can be. But mostly it’s protecting the rights of the innocent and seeing that justice is served.  Kinda the liasion between my people and the system. They’ll talk to me when they won’t outsiders.  Sometimes it’s not easy.  Life on the Rez isn’t easy.” Continue reading “Author Spotlight: Character Interview with Mystic Rayne”
