Roma and Runa Pinterest Boards are up


AVAILABLE 06.21.17


Roma and Runa's Pinterest Boards are open 😃




I love Pinterest, because I can visualize my thoughts. Sometimes it helps while writing and how to write a certain look, like the Thug vehicles from Runa.
And, it gives my readers a slight inside as to how I visualize stories.

I am soooo psyched for the release!!!!

When Mira’s life is in danger from a race who wants to cut her up, Tier protects her. A passionate night brands Mira as his life mate, confusing him as to why his animal side would chose an Earth female.

During her travels, Rahde can hear her weeping as she sleeps from a telepathic bond. It destroys him to know he’s caused her so much pain and reaches out to set things right between them.
On her way back to Rahde, his sister shows up to accompany her, both find danger from a rouge animal intent on making them his meal.

Cover Reveal - Roma & Runa



Good Morning!!

I am so psyched to reveal the cover for Roma and Runa!!
My two short stories releasing with Torrid June 21, 2017!!

These two were a huge challenge for me, as I have never written short and was basically afraid to. 
YES, I said it, I was afraid to write short!!

Why? Well because anyone who knows me, knows I write like I talk -- A lot 😀hahahahaha

I guess you could say I was afraid to write novella length (20,000 approx) until I did and found out how much I loved it.

Most of my early writings (never published) are near or over 40,000 words.

So, yes! I was afraid to write short, because you have to be so tight with your words. Every word needs to count and move the story forward.

But when asked, I took up the challenge, because I wanted to see if I could do it and step outside my comfort zone.

And now look whats happened -- I have a release!!!!😃

With a lot of thanks to my publisher at Torrid, Jan and my editor Mary!! Without their support and push, I think I may have faltered.

And is my cover not the coolest!! Thank you Kelly!!!

What's Roma and Runa about--well here are some blurbs 😉

Recovering from a Loss


As I was driving home yesterday, I heard a voice. It was my auntie, saying. ‘Alright Cindy that’s enough.’

My auntie passed a little more than a month ago, and it really hit me hard. Then a medical issue with my son, where he lost consciousness in the doctor’s office, went down and hit his head. After three hours in the emergency room by ambulance, he’s ok, no concussions or anything to that nature.

The 10K they charged is another blog!😖

So needless to say, I’ve been OFF my A-game. I’ve felt overwhelmed and exhausted, even with my day job.

My auntie was never one to sit around.

So, it’s time to pick myself back up, dust off and pull up my big girl panties and get on the roll, or else she just might ‘Gibbs’ slap me on the back of the head, LOL.
                 (If you don't watch NCIS, you may not understand that, lol.)

Losing someone very close to you is not easy, no matter if it was sudden or an ongoing illness and for those with other medical issues, like depression, it can feel as though you’re sinking, struggling every day to reach the top and take a breath of air.

So, Yes, my auntie! I heard you! I love you and I’m regrouping!


To do list for today…

·      Finish edits for two short stories releasing in June - get back to editor (before she kicks my butt),
·      Blog (check),
·     Author Newsletter,
·     Calendar to organize my time between; day job, writing, RWA chapter items and personal.
·     Make meatloaf for my Hubs. 😊 He’s going to Omaha for the next few weeks with work.

2nd cup of coffee in front of me, I’m checking out for now to hit my to do list and as always --
