Beautiful Blogger Award

Today author Casey Wyatt bestowed on me the Beautiful Blogger Award. Thank you, Casey. She publishes two posts every Friday. If you have a chance check out her blogs at and Secrets of 7 Scribes blog, you’ll be glad you did.

The award has rules though and I'm sharing them below.

Rule #1 I must share 7 things.
Rule #2 I must pass this award onto 7 other bloggers. More on this later.

I'm taking the lead here from author Casey Wyatt whose book Mystic Ink is a must read. I couldn't put it down.

I'm going to mix things up a little with facts about me and some about my characters in my upcoming release If I Fail, A Jake Carrington Mystery (September 2012).

1.) I'm seventh out of ten children, so I always try harder at everything I do.

2.) At six-one with brownish red hair and a finely chisled face some would call Jake ruggishly handsome. A player he falls hard when he meets Mia Andrews. Will the relationship last? Or will he be played.

3.) I love reading. I read anything I can get my hands on in any genre. My favorite genres are mysteries and thrillers but I like them served up with some romance.

4.) Louie Romanelli is not only Jake's partner, he's been his best friend since childhood. Louie thinks nothing about stepping over the line to put Jake, his boss, in his place.

5.) I'm a very lucky woman who is married to a wonderful man who is smart, kind, caring and let's not forget romantic. He is the love of my life. One smile from him brightens my whole day.

6.) Sophia Romanelli, Louie's wife, is the one who introduced Jake to Mia.

7.) The characters in my books are like real people to me. I love writng about them. I've have now completed book two, Burn in Hell, A Jake Carrington Mystery(January 2013). I'm working on book three, Mated for Life, A Jake Carrington Mystery and hope to have that completed sometime in July.

Now for the Seven more Beautiful Bloggers:

1.) PJ Sharon who shares her knowledge and is very generous with her time, especially with new writers.

2.) Vicki Batman  whose blog is always fun and informative.

3.) Cynthia Woolf romance from cowboys to space captains, pick your flavor.

4.) Rhonda Lane's has romance and beautiful horses.

5.) Kristina Knight A western flair and great information.

6.)Gerri Brousseau A great blog with wonderful romance authors with a lot to share.

7.) Gail Ingis a beautiful blog filled with wonderful facts about art. Gail is not only a writer she is an artist.
