Filthy Cowboy is Out Now!

I have been waiting and waiting for this book to come out, and I’m so thrilled to finally be able to give it to you! Stetson has intrigued me from the very beginning of the Junkyard Shifters series. He was a reader, he wore a cowboy hat, and he wasn’t very talkative. To be honest, I knew very little about him until I started writing Filthy Cowboy. It was only through writing his and Dew’s story that I truly discovered who he was–and the man surprised me in many wonderful ways!

And Dew, our quiet librarian heroine, has a frisky side.

Here’s my love list for Filthy Cowboy:

  • poet hero
  • cowboy hero
  • librarian heroine
  • references to The Bachelor
  • a dark backstory
  • scary bad guy!
  • the Junkyard setting

I hope you love Stetson and Dew’s story as much as I do! ❤

The Final Week of 2020

hello 2021Dear 2021,

You could not come soon enough. I’m not one to linger on the past, so I won’t lay blame or tell you all the ways you could’ve really improved things by arriving sooner. Your evil stepsibling, 2020, was wholly irresponsible and honestly, a lot of us are wary now of what dangers you might be hiding. I think it prudent for me to outline my expectations for the coming year.

  1. Only nice surprises, please
  2. Kindness is the law of the land–and this means: no name-calling, no physical violence
  3. Allow us to heal
  4. I want reason and order
  5. Give those who need it an extra kick of Empathy Cocktail
  6. End poverty and hunger
  7. Bring together friends and family who’ve been separated too long
  8. Let artists do their art
  9. Let scientists do their science
  10. Let activists bring about awareness and positive change
  11. Let every person have a voice
  12. Give us lots of great books
  13. Bring us inspiration
  14. Bring laughter

And finally, let 2021 be like a romance novel, where good triumphs, and love wins.

Thank you, 2020, for whatever small mercies we were given (because I realize it could’ve been worse, although that’s hard to imagine). And thank you, 2021, for ushering in a new year and allowing me to hope for and envision something better.

Happy Holidays

happy holidays

Whether you finished celebrating Chanukah last week, or you’re about to dive into Christmas or Kwanzaa this week, or none of the above, I’m wishing you happy holidays–past, present, future. ❤

What this week looks like for me is last-minute gift-wrapping, phone calls and Facetime with friends and family, doing puzzles and baking with the kiddos, assembling my 2021 reading journal, and then collapsing at the end of each day with Mr. Street, each of us on opposite sides of the couch and either quietly reading our own separate books, or watching a show on Netflix. Nice and peaceful.

I hope you’re able to find peace and happiness despite the strange closing to a strange year.
