When the door between life and death opens a crack and the dead start to rise, only one person has the power to close it. Unfortunately, she can’t remember who she is, let alone how to make things right again. Who is Claire Summers? Find out in Memories of a Ghost, FREE, Sept 15th only!
I changed the title of my upcoming short story collection from Sundown Rising and Other Stories to Odds and Endings: Fiction Short and Otherwise. Why the change? Partly because I’m not done with Sundown Rising and have been “not done” with it for about a year. It will appear later, as either a novella by itself or as part of another collection.
So why Odds and Endings: Fiction Short and Otherwise? I enjoy wordplay. Odds and Ends. Odds and Endings. Get it? Plus, I think (hope?) that it reflects the original, quirky, and sometimes dark stories that you will find therein.
I’m hoping to get Odds and Endings out before the end of the year. In the meantime, please read Mommy’s Favorite for free on Wattpad to get a preview!

My good friend Robin Raven just released her first novel! It’s titled Next Stop: Nina, and is about learning to accept yourself despite your past, and time travel! (you can purchase it at the very end of this post!)
Nina never really felt comfortable in this world. As she struggles to cope with the pain of her present and past, the young girl’s life is changed through the beauty of art. When Nina grows up and winds up in over her head in a dark place, she finds herself somehow transported to another time when nothing is quite what it seems. She must fight the horrors of her past all over again. Along the way, she faces greater challenges than she imagined. This is a character-driven novel with a heroine who faces life, love, and overcoming suicidal depression on her own terms.
I formatted her book for her, so if you like how it looks in Kindle or print, that’s me! If you don’t… well, then it wasn’t me! 😉
It had been just like he’d told her. Once they’d given up on fertilization treatments and just went back to having sex, she’d gotten pregnant again. With the pressure off, his guys had finally gotten the job done. If she could just hang on to this one, things were bound to get better between them.
