I know. I know. I need to hang my head in shame for not keeping you all updated.
Real life sucks sometimes and mine has been sucking a lot, lately.

I'm here now and I have updates! Several of them! So, grab your coffee, or wine, and sit back.

Update number 1: Where is the next New Hampshire Bears book? And who is it going to be about?

At the end of The Goalie and the Best Friend's Sister, I did not state who the next book was going to be about, as I've done with the other New Hampshire books. The reason for this is because I wasn't sure there were going to be anymore.
Writing used to be fun.

However, I lost my mojo for it.

The fun had left and it became a job. A job I didn't want anymore. However, I have some of the greatest friends in the world. They helped me find my way back into my fictional world and I began writing again.

This leads me to the other part of the question... Who is is about?
This is an easy answer. It will be about Bas and his friend…

Mary Smith, where do you want to travel?

I have traveled all over the world, but most of the time it's for business or it was because I was a kid and it was my parents' vacation and I had to tag along.
Now that I'm adult I want to go on my own!
Here are the FIVE places I want to go ...

1) Paris, France

Many of my friends and family have been and I'm dying to go and eat all the carbs!
2) Antartica

It's my dream to go there! I will make it someday! ... someday ...
3) Montana

Okay, I know this place isn't that far from me, but I've never been able to make it up there. It's stunningly beautiful and cold. Two of my favorite things!
4) Montreal

This is actually the place I want to retire too. I've wanted to go since I was a kid... but I'm hoping to make it this year!! *fingers crossed*
5) Alaska

Ah! Alaska! I've tried so many times to go there and every time I had, something happens

Behind the Scenes of Mary Smith

Every wonder what an author's life is really like? It's a hot mess. I'm sure many of you have seen the perfectly clean desk and spacious offices.

Let me tell you ... not all of us are that organized.
This is my true behind the scenes.
I'm currently working on six different books, two of which are being co-authored (those surprises will be announced later) therefore, my desk is a mess.

But, it's my mess!
First my desk ...

This is the main part of my desk ... are you can see ... it's a mess! haha!

This is the left side of my desk. As you can see my computer is always streaming Hulu or Netflix. I have to have some type of movie and/or show going as I write/blog/work. You can also see my journals. There are notes, ideas, and such for books to come and books I've already written.

This is the top (or hutch) of my desk. You don't want to open those doors. HAHA! Behind there are all my business contracts, receipts I need to get to my accountant (which I've…

Let me tell you a story...

If you step into the world of social media, there's always so much hate on there anymore. Hate against religious groups. Hate against the government. Hate against other bloggers. Hate against other authors. And it always makes me sad.
So here's a more uplifting story ... about me! I know it sounds conceded, but bear with me for just a moment.
I want to tell you a story about doing something good for someone else. See, I'm always that person in line at Starbucks who pays for the person behind me. I'm that person who carries change around to give to the homeless and such in the area. I'm that person.
Now, I'm not telling you this to boost my ego... Absolutely not!

I'm telling you this to pass it on and why I do it.
It was about two or so years ago and I was at my local Target. I remember it was the holiday season and you know how rough that time of year is.

I was in line and stressed to the max after fighting a crowd of people and been standing in line for way too …

A lot of you have come to this site because you've read my books and/or heard about me from another author.
For those of you that have read my books, here is my question:
What do you want me to write next?
Here are your options:
1) Book 10 of the New Hampshire Bears series 2) a book about an arranged marriage. Oh, and they're wolves! 3) a book about vampires 4) just a simple, sweet romance novel
BTW, I actually have all of these in the works right, but I just don't know in the order to publish them.
For those of you that have come to me and not read my books, then tell me what you like to read.
Here are your options:
1) hot, hockey men 2) sexy wolves 3) deliciously, lickable vampires 4) or the nice guy next door
