The Letter is Now Available

My newest novel, The Letter, is now available in print and for the Amazon Kindle.

The Letter is the story of a man being hounded by a former girlfriend who can't accept the fact that their relationship has ended. While not as dark of a story as The Stalker, The Letter is a story of misunderstandings, miscommunications, and people who aren't as they appear to be. Like my other novels, the plot twists and turns to an unexpected, if not surprise, ending.

The Letter is also available in paperback on Barnes&, and look for upcoming ebook editions available for iBooks and for the Nook reader.

Southern Arizona Wine Country

When I'm not busy writing books, I'm also a video geek. I've been doing photography since the age of nine, and, with new digital technology, I'm now getting into video. With help and inspiration from my good friend and fellow video geek, Rob Resetar, I've learned a lot about how to produce videos from the book trailers he's created for me.

I'm also willing to bet that many of you probably don't know that there are some wonderful wineries in southern Arizona. I certainly didn't know about them until after I moved to Tucson. They're down near the Mexican border in a beautiful part of the state. From time to time I'll pack a lunch and spend a day down there, and I also included it as one of the locations in my novel, The Betrayal.

I recently produced a little video montage about our local wine country, and Sonoita Vineyards, one of the featured wineries, was the real life inspiration for McPherson Vineyards, where Kyle hides Emily to save her from a hitman.

Yep, I'm Back

I originally started this blog back in 2012. It was right after I'd published my second romance novel, The Deception. I started out with Blogger and found it incredibly user friendly, even though everyone I talked to kept saying, "WordPress! WordPress! WordPress!"

Then, a couple years ago, I encountered some sort of a coding error that I couldn't fix, so I moved this, and all my other blogs, over to WordPress, and yeah, WordPress has some cool features that Blogger doesn't. It was also cumbersome and difficult to use, and it just wasn't as comfortable of a platform for me. Then the unthinkable happened. I went to post something on another blog, but when I tried to log into it I kept getting error messages. So I called GoDaddy, my WordPress provider, and was told that WordPress is susceptible to malware and hacking, and that's what had happened to my blog. Of course they could fix it--for an extra fee.

I am so done with WordPress! I'm migrating all my blogs back to Blogger. Maybe Blogger isn't as cool as WordPress, but it's a whole lot more secure. It too has some cool features that WordPress doesn't, and, as mentioned before it's so much easier to use. I have enough hassles in life. I don't need to deal with a blogging platform that's difficult to use and easy to hack.
