Wow! The past few weeks have been full of unexpected surprises, all of them good.
First: An Unexpected Father is a RITA® Finalist! I am so thrilled to be nominated. I loved this book and the characters. It's great to know that others thought the same thing. The awards are announced in New York at the annual Romance Writers of America® convention the first of July. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
More good news hit me recently, too. My unpublished fantasy novel In the Service of Shadows is a finalist for the Sheila, Valley Forge Romance Writer's contest award. Love, magic and Mardi Gras all blended into a fast-paced read that will keep you on the edge of your seat. This is quite a bit different than my past books. I hope you'll like it.
