Texas storm

Well, every last vestige of the Texas storm is gone. One week ago today the temperature was around 8F. Today it was 75F. Didn’t even need a jacket.

The Husband and I survived the storm – tragically about 70 people in the area didn’t. Thousands were without any kind of power at all for days – am not even sure if everyone has theirs restored now. We were without power for 30+ hours, of course over the night that it went down to -1F. However – we were blessed by having a gas fireplace and a gas cooktop. Gas fireplaces don’t give out nearly as much heat as wood, but we were certainly grateful for whatever it did give! With a gas cooktop I was able to make hot drinks and sort-of cook, so we didn’t do without. Best of all, we have an old-fashioned coal oil lamp that belonged to my great-grandparents. And blankets. Several extra blankets, and we and the dog nested under them all that long cold night!

My heart goes out to those who suffered more than we, and believe me, things were bad here. I do prefer cool weather to hot, but – hey! – there is a limit! As strange as it seems, so many people think Dallas/Fort Worth is tropical, and while I’ll admit it does get hot, it most definitely isn’t tropical! Every year we have some cold weather, and about once a decade we have a storm like the one just past. Believe me, that’s one too many. Stay warm and safe, everyone. Even if you don’t expect a storm or a disaster, have some supplies in your house. They do make a difference.

Romance at Spanish Rock

Struggling LA photographer Jeri Abbott is stunned to find that her unknown biological father has left her a ranch in the famed Palo Duro Canyon in the Texas Panhandle. With the intention of cleaning the old house of any family things and then selling the place she makes what she thought would be a quick trip, only to become entranced with the ranch, the land – and the handsome cowboy next door.

As Jeri explores her family history she finds herself reluctant to sell the ranch to a development company who wants to put in a glitzy spa retreat. The high, open country speaks to her and after deciding she does not want to sell Jeri realizes she may not have a choice.



Doug pulled Champ to a stop and dismounted with an easy grace, pulling the reins over the horse’s head and dropping them to the ground.

“Aren’t you going to tie him to something?”

“Nah. He’s trained to stand.” Doug walked to Jeri’s side and held up his arms. “Now can you dismount from there or do you need my help?”

Jeri all but bristled. “Of course I can dismount,” she said haughtily. “Gravity, you know.”

She might not be much of a rider, but surely she could get down from the top of a horse!

Except she couldn’t. Ignoring the screaming in her thighs, she stood in the stirrups and tried to swing her leg over the horse’s rump in a classic dismount, but halfway through her muscles froze. Her body didn’t. She kept going backwards, right into Doug’s arms.

Jeri didn’t know whether to be mortified or grateful. He was holding her without effort, his slim arms as strong as any muscle-bound boy starlet’s. She lay cradled against him, feeling the heat of him on her skin as if their shirts hadn’t been there, smelling the combination of horse and man that would beat out any cologne on the market. She hoped he couldn’t feel how thunderously her heart was beating.

He was laughing gently. “Guess you’re pretty out of shape, aren’t you?”

Back in LA Jeri would have said she was in excellent shape. For LA, maybe. For this part of Texas, no way. “For riding, at least.”

“Sorry,” he said with real contrition. At least it sounded real, even through a veil of laugher. “I should have realized. Do you think you can stand?”

For one moment Jeri really considered saying no and cherished a sudden fantasy of him mounting his horse with her still in his arms and riding off like a knight on a white charger. It was a humiliating embarrassment to have such a romantic girlish daydream, even if she was the only one who knew about it.

“Of course I can.”

But it wasn’t easy. He put her gently on her feet and kept an arm around her shoulders until she was steady. She could stand, but her legs protested. Her back protested. She was hurting so much it seemed as if even her hair were protesting. While it hurt Jeri’s pride to acknowledge it, she knew she’d never be able to get back on that dratted horse, let alone ride back to the house. What would he do with her? Throw her over the horse’s back like a dead body in the old Western movies?

Or perhaps, carry her in front of him like a prince on a white charger would a princess? Except Champ was an uncompromising brown. Not, she thought quickly, that it would make any difference

A Well-Mannered Murder

A long-closed charm school.

A contentious divorce.

A smothering mother.

The murder of a mysterious woman.

The Kennedy assassination.

Fledgling researcher and newly single Mindy McMann just can’t catch a break. She might not even live.


Mindy McMann’s life has gone upside down. While divorcing her cheating husband, she has to maintain good relations with her teenaged son, convince her overprotective mother that she is not going to move back in with her, and find a way to support herself. Non-fiction author and decided eccentric Darryl Knedsyn offers Mindy a job as a researcher for a book about the long-defunct Miss McCallum’s College of Charm, which seems absolutely perfect… until the underground vault at prestigious Carlisle College where she is working in the charm school’s archives is broken in to. Perfect until a mysterious unknown woman who bears a strong resemblance to Mindy is brutally attacked in the archive storage area. Perfect until Mindy is accused of her murder.


Without knowing how it happened, Mindy finds herself the target of mysterious people who for reasons she doesn’t understand mean her harm. Then she discovers the Kennedy connection, and things get really dangerous.



There was a strange young woman working the desk and Sophronsiba nowhere in sight. She looked suspiciously at me when I asked for my keys and demanded to see identification before she would hand them over.

“Where’s Ms. Higgins this morning?” I asked while affixing my signature to the sign-in sheet. Pretty soon this one would be full. My name, repeated over and over again in a single column.

Her eagle eyes didn’t miss a single pen stroke. “Ms. Higgins is having a meeting upstairs,” she murmured, staring so hard at my signature that I feared she might want my ID back for comparison. When I wrote down the time, she glanced at her watch. I hoped our watches were synchronized.

“Well, I’ll see her later.” I didn’t even try to smile at her as I left. After forty every movement of your facial muscles puts you that much closer to wrinkles, and I didn’t want to waste that tiny bit of elasticity on her.

Taking the keys I unlocked the elevator and rode down. It was cold in the vault; how crazy – close to 100F outside and in here I was glad I kept a sweater draped over the back of my chair!

I unlocked the vault gate and turned on the lights – all of them.

The McCallum vault was at the far end of the main aisle, straight in front of me. Even from here I could see that the wire gate was open. My heart began to pound.

I was halfway down the aisle before realizing that what I had thought was a shadow was in actuality a human leg, flat on the floor and twisted at an odd angle.

Attached to that stocking-clad leg was a woman jammed ungracefully into the tiny space between my worktable and the closest rack of shelving. A rack of shelving that was glaringly empty. On the other racks all the storage boxes had their lids either ajar or tossed off altogether and there were little islands of ledger books and files in neat stacks on the floor as well as papers casually tossed around like scanty snow.

I didn’t see any of that, not after the first glance. All I could see was the back of the woman’s head, her hair slick and shiny as if it had been coated with plastic. What set me to screaming, though, was the small spreading lip of liquid red radiating out from beneath her head.

Murder and Miss Wright

Lily Wright doesn’t care a thing about Ancient Egypt, but she does care about Peter Monroe. Lily thinks the trip to a scholarly conference sounds delightfully romantic – until they run into a predatory ex-girlfriend, an obnoxiously exuberant archaeologist and his mousey wife, a scholar who is convinced he is an Ancient Egyptian priest and a souvenir seller who may or may not be dealing in smuggled artifacts. When three murders are committed and Peter is arrested for them, Lily knows she must find the real killer – if she can stay alive long enough.

Excerpt of  Murder and Miss Wright

“There are always bad people, Lily. It’s just hard to accept that they are someone we know.”

Shivering, Lily pulled away and stood before the dresser. She picked up her brush and began to pull it through her hair mindlessly, without even bothering to count the strokes. “At least they can’t blame Megan’s death on Gerda Bone. She’s in the hospital, and they won’t tell anyone anything about her condition,” she added with angry indignation.

“Gerda couldn’t have done it anyway. She’s too frail. She could have had an accomplice, though, and then it wouldn’t matter if she were in the hospital or not.”

Although Lily didn’t like it a bit, her mind immediately flashed to Toby Don Holder. He wasn’t particularly muscular, but he would probably more than capable of beating up a thin young woman like Megan Waterman. He would also do anything at all Gerda Bone asked of him.

“I don’t think she did. I don’t think she was involved in either case.”

“I know.” Peter smiled wryly. “You’ve spent most of the day telling anybody who’d listen.”

Lily stuck her tongue out at him. “I don’t know how Gerda felt about Megan Waterman or if she even knew her, but for someone as much in love with her husband as she is–was–is, how could she have?”

“Love can breed hate. How often does one spouse kill another?”

“Not Gerda. She just lay back and let him walk all over her!”

“Maybe she had enough of it. Even worms turn, you know.”

“I’d rather think it could have been one of his other wives…” Her hairstyle completely destroyed, Lily laid down the brush and began creaming her hands.

“Wives? What wives?” Peter asked, then said, “You know you look like Lady Macbeth when you do that.”

“I’m told she had lovely hands,” Lily replied frivolously, but quit wringing her hands with such vigor. “Tyrus Bone’s wives. Ex-wives.”

“I knew about Dr. Ramsgate. Did Tyrus have another ex?”

“Yes, I saw her today. Dr. Carolyn Griffiths.”

Peter looked startled. “Dr. Griffiths? She’s just about the foremost iconographer and art historian working today. Who told you she had been married to Tyrus?”

“Zale Redding. He had just rescued me from Arthur Stern.”

In spite of himself Peter chuckled. “Poor baby. Was he wearing his Tut mask?”

“No, his bookseller hat. He wanted to take me upstairs and sell me his two books–at ninety dollars apiece, no less.”

“If I were going to take you upstairs I wouldn’t bother about books,” Peter said and with a grin pulled Lily back against him.

“In case you hadn’t noticed, we are upstairs.” Lily slipped into his embrace.

“I know.”

“So what are you going to do about it?”

“What do I always do about it?” With delicate precision Peter began to nibble on Lily’s ear.

“What about dinner?” Lily’s imp of perversity asked.

“That depends on what we want to eat…” Peter’s lips slid from her ear–moving carefully around her somewhat spiky earrings–and down the column of her neck. “We can always have room service later.”

“Now I remember why I love you…” Lily started and stiffened in Peter’s arms. “What’s that?”

“What’s what?”

“I heard something… it sounded like it came from over there.” She pointed in the direction of the vandalized room.

For a moment they even stopped breathing, then Peter said with the utter reasonableness of a man who never heard unexplained noises, “From there? That’s locked up.”

“I was sure I heard something…”

“This is a hotel, honey. There are always unexplained noises. Now,” he said in a completely different tone, “you were going to tell me why you love me…”

“Because you’re so predictable,” Lily said, but with a completely different connotation from her first thought.

“Funny…” Peter’s lips resumed their nibbling down the length of her neck. “No one ever told me predictability was sexy…”

Lily drew and exhaled a deep, ecstatic breath. “There’s a lot we women don’t tell.” Using her last bit of willpower she pushed him back. “Give me a minute to freshen up, will you?”

“I’ll start timing now.”

Kissing him impudently on the nose, Lily turned toward the bathroom. She had barely closed the door and turned on the water when a blast of noise erupted. First a muffled shouting, then a crash, then a solid thunk, then an odd, heavy slither.

Surely, Lily thought as she dashed back into the bedroom, Peter had to have heard that!

Peter had heard, and more. He looked up uncomprehendingly at Lily, but Lily didn’t comprehend either. The connecting door to the other room, the door that Peter checked every night to be sure was locked, was open. There were splashes of glowing wet red on the floor, splashes that looked horribly familiar to Lily. Peter sat sprawled in the center of the room, his arms clasped around Salim Mafouz’ chest. Mafouz’ face was oddly flattened and misshapen beneath a rising spring of blood. He was also very obviously dead.

Killing Harvey

Killing Harvey

It was a killer Christmas…

By all accounts it should have been a perfect holiday. A beautiful, elegant house. Rebecca’s future relatives all together, talking happily about her upcoming Christmas afternoon wedding to Peter. A gorgeous tree surrounded by presents. A Christmas-card perfect snowfall.

But the snowfall turned into a freak blizzard, trapping Rebecca and Peter in with his family. Then, once the house was completely isolated and no one could enter or leave, the most obnoxious member of the family is found stabbed. And garroted. And perhaps poisoned. Who really killed Harvey… and how?

Can Rebecca solve this murder? More importantly, does she really want to?

Happy Christmas

How on earth did it get to be December so quickly? Of course, I’m still wondering how it got to be 2016! Time seems to be just zipping by! Anyway, I’ve got a lot of news to share.

First of all, I have finally begun a newsletter, please sign up. It’s going to be a casual thing, sent out only when I have a new release or something really exciting to announce. In the spirit of research I subscribed to a number of author newsletters and was astounded to see how often some send them out – believe it or not, some writers send mailings three and four times a week! How do they find that much to say? Or find the time to do it? Or find any time to write after doing it? No way – I’ll never do anything that over the top. If you’re interested – and I hope you are – there’s post above that will get you on the list.

Halloween Newsletter

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a4/Halloween_Witch_2011.JPGHope you had a wonderful Halloween! I love Halloween – it’s really the only truly grown-up holiday in my opinion. For one night you get to be anyone or anything you want – the apogee of grown-up ‘play like’. I’m just sorry that grown-ups can’t go door to door demanding candy… my waistline, however, isn’t.


We haven’t had trick or treaters for years. One reason is that our front door is at the back of the house (yes, it’s a very unusual structure – doesn’t have any hallways, either!) and can be reached only by walking down a long and dark driveway. The fact that in the last window on the driveway I have on permanent display a 4 foot tall mummy doesn’t help. (Of course it’s a fake, darn it, but it’s a good one.) I used to put one of those battery operated tea lights in front of it because otherwise you can’t see it in the dark… it was a lovely spooky effect!

The Unexpected Benefits of a Passion for Research

I was recently asked to contribute Marilyn Meredith’s blog here is the article for my readers.

For far too many writers the word ‘research’ brings up unpleasant images of slaving away in dusty library stacks taking notes or endless hours at the computer tracing down esoteric and difficult to find sites. Some love both, but most don’t. Far too many novelists don’t like research at all, which is a pity, both for the reader and for the writer.


Research can bring new knowledge, new friends and some fantastic adventures. When I was doing THE EGYPTIAN FILE (written by my Janis Susan May persona) I needed some exact information about a graffito in a tomb at the necropolis of El Kab. I had been there some years earlier (which is how I found out about the graffito) but could not remember in which tomb it had been.

Curse of the Exile

COTE WEB PROMO medium“CURSE OF THE EXILE is a traditional Gothic mystery reminiscent of the best of Victoria Holt and Virginia Coffman that no lover of Gothics should miss. A courageous heroine, 1860s Scotland, two handsome brothers, a moldering castle, an unknown villain bent on a horrid vengeance… delicious! A perfect book for curling up with for a long enjoyable trip to the past.” Carla Renard, The Literary Lady

After an unhappy childhood and a cruelly broken romance, Angelina Barstow has found a kind of respectable life working as a librarian with her charming but womanizing father. In 1860 they come to the Scottish castle called Merlon Motte, where the owner and his much younger brother are sharply divided on the necessity of selling the place. An ancient sword is stuck into the ceiling of the Great Hall and family legend says it was put there by a long-ago exiled son, who promised to curse anyone who endangers the castle. Angelina regards this as just a charming family story until the prospective buyer is murdered, the Sword of the Exile driven through his heart.

In spite of herself, Angelina has fallen in love, but though she loves one and sincerely likes the other she doesn’t know which of the brothers is the murderer. She thinks things can get no worse, but then there is another, more shocking death when her father is found drowned and the prospective buyer’s friend, the same man who so tried to dishonor her years before, says he intends to make her his mistress by force if necessary. Two more long held secrets threaten Angelina and her beloved before the Curse of the Exile is finally lifted.

The Egyptian File

TEF WEB mediumMelissa Warrender is trying to solve the strange death of her father, an art-gallery owner. A specialist in 17th and 18th century European paintings, Melissa knows little of the Egyptian artifacts her father loved and even less about the business of acquiring them. Melissa receives an unexplainable phone call which may or may not have come from her late father directing her to retrieve a mysterious file hidden in Cairo. What Melissa does not realize is that she is not only a prime suspect of a special task force set up to stop antiquities smuggling, but a target of her father’s chief rival.

David El-Baradi is a professor of Egyptology in London, in Cairo on sabbatical to help the task force. Unexpectedly, he must masquerade as a taxi driver who befriends Melissa and is surprised to find himself attracted to her. David cannot reveal his true identity, though, especially when they learn that the mysterious file might lead to an unimaginable treasure. As the pair lurch across Egypt, unaided by the compromised task force and ruthlessly sought by the murderous son of Warrender’s chief rival, they try to decipher the cryptic clues of THE EGYPTIAN FILE.

Passion’s Choice

PC WEB mediumWhen she accompanied her aunt on a tour to Egypt, Elissa McLaughlin expected only a week of sun, sand and ancient monuments. She certainly did not expect to find herself back in the dangerously tumultuous time of the woman Pharaoh Hatshepsut, nor to be regarded as a pleasure woman by a handsome general, and most certainly not to be flung into the center of political intrigue simply because she has an astonishing resemblance to the pharaoh’s daughter.

At first Elissa’s only thought is to get back to her own time, but as her attachments to the general and the pharaoh and the land of Egypt itself grow she is torn between the life she knew so far in the future and the life and love she is finding there. As the country erupts into chaos with the invasion of Thutmosis III in his attempt to take over the throne he regards as rightfully his, Elissa and her love are caught between the warring factions. To save their lives she is forced to make Passion’s Choice.

The Jerusalem Connection

TJC WEB medium“The Jerusalem Connection is a must-read. It has everything – romance, danger and a sense of place and time that are simply spectacular. All the different elements come together to make an exciting, well-written story.” Melissa Danford, Reading Registry

When their original leader falls ill choir director Robin Sabine reluctantly agrees to accompany six teenagers to a musical competition in Jerusalem. The simple purchase of a souvenir for her boss’ wife plunges her into a nightmare of danger, kidnapping and almost certain death. The unexpected appearance of a former boyfriend turned enemy unnerves her, and the attentions of a suave, sophisticated British diplomat turn her head even as she wonders if she can trust him.

After her unscheduled shopping trip in the Old City Robin discovers that there are a number of people inordinately interested in her movements. Her room is searched. She has difficulties with the competition. Neither man in her life trusts the other and after being ruthlessly kidnapped, Robin realizes that a number of people – including her teenaged charges – believe she is a spy.

Conflicting loyalties and the specter of international terrorism make her doubt everything she ever thought she knew. Worst of all, the teens who have been put in her care disappear even as Robin’s own life is threatened. If she is going to survive and rescue all entrusted to her, Robin will need all the wits and courage she can muster.

SL WEB medium“SHADOWED LEGACY has it all – romance, mystery, conflicting emotions, great threatening atmosphere and a feisty heroine who can rise above all her tribulations. A splendid read – just be sure you start reading early, because you won’t want to put it down.” Ruth Adams – TBC Reviews

Surviving by singing in the saloons of the remote Western silver camps, orphaned and fiercely independent Genevieve Bonneau is startled when the grandfather she has never met sends cynical, handsome Jonathan Eversleigh to bring her home to his Louisiana plantation, Maison des Ombres.

Genevieve’s hope of finally having a family is soon dashed. Once there, Genevieve’s reception is mixed; her imperious and cranky grandfather does not like her and her aunt positively hates her, but her cousin Charlotte deMarchand and remote relation Sebastien Thierry are welcoming.

Genevieve quickly learns that she has not been brought to Ombres as a welcomed prodigal. Broken-hearted, she desires nothing more than to leave, but strange attacks against her cousin Charlotte make that impossible, almost as impossible as leaving the enigmatic Jonathan Eversleigh. When the attempts on Charlotte’s life come to a climax, Genevieve realizes that all things are not as they seem, nor even as she might dream them, and that if she is to survive she must trust someone.

The Devil of Dragon House

TDODH WEB mediumIn 1858 young ladies of good family did not take their lives and futures into their own hands. Orphaned from birth, Dilly Farraday has always been shunted all over the South from one unwelcoming relative to another. Too pretty for her current family’s comfort, Dilly decides to go North in search of her mother’s family rather than submit to a distasteful marriage. She has been in correspondence with her cousin Doro, whom she knows will welcome her. Once in Connecticut Dilly is shocked to find that Doro is one of the many young women who have gone missing recently. Undaunted, Dilly arrives at the great crumbling pile of Dragon House. Doro had written about being in love with the master of here. Dilly is confounded that there are two handsome brothers there and neither know anything about Doro.

Dilly is crushed and almost ready to leave when out by the treacherous cliff to the sea she finds a collar that she had made for Doro. She redoubles her investigation, sure now that Doro is there someplace and that she will find her. What she does not expect is that she will fall in love with one of the masters of Dragon House, or that in solving the mystery of the missing girls she will put not only her life but her love at risk.
