The Twisted Rose

The 5th installment of the Home Office Lords is officially out. It can be found on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and many more. It is available in paperback and ebook. Would love to see some reviews. The cover on this book is special as it was designed and created by two of my nieces. The sign for the shipping company is the work of Amanda J Flees, who has been so important to me in this entire process. The rest of the cover is thanks to another niece, Emily A Dreier, who is a photographer by trade. Thank you to both of them.


The Joys of Doing Rewrites

I know I cannot be the only author that gets protective of their work. We put so much of ourselves into our writing, that when an editor sends it back with proposed changes, the first thing I do is get defensive. Yet where would we be without those editors? I have an excellent one that catches if I use a word too many times or if I have mixed up my characters in my story. Once I get past that knee jerk reaction of “what’s wrong with it?”, then I can become proactive and part of the process of making my work polished. It doesn’t mean that there might not be an error here or there, but there will sure be a lot less of them. So thank you to editors out there. We appreciate all that you do.
