I finally got around to uploading some recent pictures!

New story available!

Published this month: Frenzy: 60 Stories of Sudden Sex, an anthology of flash fiction stories, which contains my story "The Heist." A spicy story about a bank job gone wrong...or maybe right? You'll have to read it to find out.

Well, squee!

Another sale! "Mirror Mirror" will appear in Do Not Disturb: Hotel Sex Stories, to be published in March 2009!

Don't you just love hotels...?  ;-)

"And we adoped you a walrus." "A LIVE one?!"

Two amazing Styx shows in Florida, with so much love from the boys. I love the looks on their faces when I show up somewhere unexpected—but even more, I love that they appreciate I’d spend the time and effort and cost to do it. We were able to give Lawrence’s and JY’s birthday presents (charity donations and cards) to the tour manager and briefly got backstage to talk to JY…although Lawrence came along and I had the chance to talk to him about the charities. And I got a hug. Maybe two. It’s all such a blur…

Annnnnd, I sold a story and a half! My solo story “Come to My Window” and Sophie Mouette story “On Display” will appear in the anthology Where the Girls Are! Wahoo!

I’m having a blast hanging out with Helen, whom I haven’t seen in over a year and a half, and all my other Styx peeps, old friends and new alike.

Life feels pretty much perfect right now—if Ken were here and the request for a full novel ms (which I got right before I left and mailed to the publisher pronto) had been an actual sale, I think my head would explode!
