Happy Fall, Y'all!
After an extremely busy year of writing (three deadlines!), I'm ready to sit back, clean off my desk...and start planning for the holidays! Sometimes I feel like I'm on a merry-go-round, but I don't think I'd have it any other way.
Next up from me is the 4th and final book in the Tradd Street series--RETURN TO TRADD STREET--which will be out on January 7th. It was bittersweet writing this book as I've fallen in love with Melanie, Jack, Nola, and the rest of the Tradd Street gang and it will be very hard letting them go. I will be doing quite a few appearances to promote the book, so please check my appearances page to see if I'm coming to a stop near you!
For those of you who've written to me about my first two novels which have been out of print for the last decade, I'm very happy to announce that updated editions of IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON and WHISPERS OF GOODBYE will both be published in 2015. No covers yet, but I guarantee they'll be a lot better than the first ones!
In addition to RETURN TO TRADD STREET, I will have two more books published in 2014: out in June, A LONG TIME GONE, set in the Mississippi Delta, and in July, GRAND CENTRAL--an anthology with nine other authors. It will be a very busy year!
Enjoy the cooler weather, and may you find time to sit by a roaring fire with a good book. I know I will. :-)
Until next time, happy reading!

BOOK 4 in the TRADD STREET SERIES!
Facing her future as a single mother, psychic Realtor Melanie Middleton is determined to be strong and leave her past with writer Jack Trenholm behind her. But history has a tendency of catching up with Melanie, whether she likes it or not.…
Melanie is only going through the motions of living since refusing Jack’s marriage proposal. She misses him desperately, but her broken heart is the least of her problems. Despite an insistence that she can raise their child alone, Melanie is completely unprepared for motherhood, and she struggles to complete renovations on her house on Tradd Street before the baby arrives.
When Melanie is roused one night by the sound of a ghostly infant crying, she chooses to ignore it. She simply does not have the energy to deal with one more crisis. That is, until the remains of a newborn buried in an old christening gown are found hidden in the foundation of her house.
As the hauntings on Tradd Street slowly become more violent, Melanie decides to find out what caused the baby’s untimely death, uncovering the love, loss, and betrayal that color the house’s history—and threaten her claim of ownership. But can she seek Jack’s help without risking her heart? For in revealing the secrets of the past, Melanie also awakens the malevolent presence that has tried to keep the truth hidden for decades.…
