Throughout the entire series, she struggles not only with the outside influences trying to destroy her, but… Continue reading Mental Health and the Evie Cappelli series
Are you excited? I am. Book 2 in the Evie Cappelli series will be out this fall. I can't tell you how much I love this book.

This is the gender-bent Three Musketeers I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. I've been posting snippets on my Twitter feed, if you… Continue reading Writing WIPs & What’s Next
Apparently, I am becoming "that author who writes about Montreal." I've come across very few books set in the city, and even fewer in English. In THE SPIDER'S WEB, the city is almost another character in the story. When I lived there, I found the atmosphere so invigorating and inspiring, it was one of the… Continue reading 9 Things You Didn’t Know About Montreal
