New Romantic Novel!

I'm excited to announce my newest novel Tempting Mr. Perfect will be out September 2nd! It's a fun, sexy story about Dave Sanders and Kathy Smith that you're sure to enjoy. Pre-order now at Barnes & Noble.

Sometimes it feels good to be bad . . .
Dave Sanders is making up for a lifetime of sin. After leaving his reckless past behind, he now runs a respectable bar and grill. But keeping his wild side in check becomes nearly impossible when Kathy Mae Smith starts working for him. She's shy, modest, and sexy as hell. Slow, sweet seduction has never been his style, but then Dave has never wanted a woman like this before . . .

Thanks to her ex-husband, Kathy doesn't know if she can ever trust another man. And she certainly isn't about to jeopardize her job by jumping into bed with her hot new boss. Yet Dave is kind, caring, and his sizzling persistence is about to burn through the last of her defenses-until her past catches up with her. If she surrenders the truth to Mr. Perfect, will she lose him . . . or get a second shot at love?

Have a Sparking Day!

Diaries of a Determined Cook: Burnt Disappointments!

So, last week I was banned from the kitchen. Yes, it wasn't a proud day for a woman who really is trying her best to learn cooking. It all started the Thursday before last when I attempted to make Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin.

There I was, set to make a delicious meal for my family, before I begin my teaching. You see, I have a classroom in my home and teach Creative Writing Classes to young adults and adults. I try to make sure supper is done, at least, a half hour before class so my husband can get home to change and we can all sit and eat before I go into 'Teacher Mode'.
Guess it wasn't going to happen this time around. :(

I placed the Pork in the WHITE casserole dish. (Notice I wrote, 'white' in capitals) Put it in the oven at 450 degrees for 15 minutes to do whatever its supposed to do, then pulled it out, put the mixture on it and set it back in to bake. (No problem!)
OOPS! After 20 minutes I could smell something.

"What the hell is that?" I wondered, aloud.

I forgot to turn the heat down on the casserole to 350. (Apparently this is very important)

Quickly I turned the heat down and opened the stove door to let some heat out. Thick black smoke filled my home and I waited, while praying, for the smoke alarms to not go off. (They're all connected so if one goes off, they all go off) Meanwhile, children come from everywhere in the house. I closed the oven door, hoping they wouldn't notice. (Yeah, right!)

"Mom's cooking again! I think its done!"

I flipped the teenager off. He snickered and let me know, "Oh look! Dad's home."


"What the hell is going on?"

Near tears I relayed the catastrophic event that was now 'charcoal supper'. With my head hung low I pulled it out of the oven. More black smoke filled the house and my beautiful casserole dish was now Black.
*big sigh*

My husband starts laughing. "New recipe."


"You should really stick to what you know."

"Cookies and coffee cake?" I felt defeated and depressed.

"I'm just saying, (I hate when he says that) if you're going to make something new, you shouldn't go for something as complicated as..."

He stopped talking when I gave him 'the look'. "I try so it's easier on you, because you get home so late and--.

"Do us a favor honey," He put his arms around me because I was really close to tears. "Don't enter my kitchen for a week. I don't know if our stomachs can handle it."

I shook my head 'yes' and went to answer the door while Mark went to the burnt dish to see what he could do with it.

"Wow! What's that smell?" my student asked.

** In my defense, we found out this week our stove connection wasn't properly secured when we moved into the house. It was causing the stove to 'misfire' and the temp to be erratic. Sooooo...I don't care what anyone says, this wasn't my fault. :)

Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Prep: 15
Cook:1 hr

1/3 cup honey
2 tsp soy sauce
1 Tbl brown sugar
2 Tbl sesame oil
2 Tbl balsamic vinegar
2 (3/4 pound) pork tenderloin

1. Preheat oven to 450.
2. In brown, mix the honey, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, and balsamic vinegar.
3. Place the pork tenderloins in a roasting pan, and roast 15 minutes in a preheated oven.
4. Remove pork from oven, and baste with the honey sauce. Reduce oven temperature to 350 and continue roasting pork 45 minutes, basting occasionally with the honey sauce, to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.

Good luck! Apparently this is wayyyyy too complicated for me!! LOL

Have a Sparkling day!

Talkin' Tuesday with Donna Galanti!

Hi Donna! The last time I saw you was in March at the Write Stuff Conference. What the heck have you been up to, lately?
And so great to see you there! Too much going on, but it’s all good. I am promoting my debut novel, A Human Element, editing a middle grade adventure novel, writing a sequel to A Human Element, blogging away and doing wonderful interviews with people like you! Oh, and somewhere in there is that pesky day job. 
I don't know how you do it!

Congrats on A Human Element coming out! You’ve gotten some awesome reviews, how ya feeling?
Thanks! I’m very surprised that people I don’t know actually like my book! Kind of euphoric. They aren’t old friends trying to do me a favor. LOL.

When writing your stories, do you have story boards which you work off of?
I don’t. When I write a new novel idea it generally comes to me in one sitting. I write the preliminary synopsis, a few pages, and work off that. Then I write bulleted chapter points. I keep all the visual in my head.

You’ve written a few novels. How long does it normally take you to complete one, start to finish?
About seven months writing part time as I also do freelance copywriting for an Ad Agency and work about 25-30 hours a week. This doesn’t include editing time of course!
Darn day jobs always get in the way!
What surprised you most when it came to becoming an author?
That once you write a book you’re not done. You haven’t reached some pinnacle. There are more mountains to climb. Another book to write, tons of social media interaction to do, and a public presence to maintain. You cannot live your anonymous life anymore in a quiet zone alone. Some days I miss the days of just me and my writing.
I showed up to Baseball tryouts incognito! It was really fun to observe everyone. :)
You always read the first and last page of a book before buying it. I read the last line then skim the whole book, then go back and read it. (After buying it, of course!) Is there something wrong with us?
 Totally not! I need to know what I’m getting myself into before I buy a book.  Kinda like test driving a new car and seeing if it actually does go up to 110 mph, or if that ultimate promise of an awesome climax is a lie. LOL.
LOL I love you!
How’s the kitties?
 Awww, love my kitties. They are more like dogs really. Follow me around. One can open our farmhouse latch doors. He hangs on to the handle and bites down on the handle with his teeth to open while his fat belly swings about and his little legs kick to nowhere.

Hot bubble baths or hot tub?

Actually neither. I can’t waste time sitting around in warm water. And hot tubs skeeve me out. All those germs breeding and multiplying. Ewww…

Is your son looking forward to the summer?
Him. Yes. Me. No! It means camps to arrange, playdates and swim club time. All of it = OFF SCHEDULE. I don’t like off schedule. How can I get in my writing time when it’s “Mommy, play with me!” time. They should go to school year round.
Oh, my, gosh, YES!

If you could have any car, what would it be?
Ahhh, miss my Fahrvergnügen. It was frigngruvn. That’s Volkswagen speak. Would love to have an original VW bug convertible. My first VW was a 1972 white Beetle – like Herbie. Had it in Hawaii. The driver side door wouldn’t open nor would the window roll down. But it floated great when caught unaware in a torrential rain flood. It also had that great Bug sound and beep beep horn I love. Then I had a VW Fox. That was sweet.

Perfect typist or chicken pecker?
Pretty fast typist. About 80 words a minute. My brain works too fast though for my fingers to catch up. My husband, who is on the computer all day long, hen pecks. Drives me nuts!
LOL I do 70 and people always ask 'how'? You know the amazing thing is if I'm writing with a pen, I get all fumbled up!
What’s the largest/strangest pet you’ve ever had?
I had a Rhodesian Ridgeback dog growing up. They are noted to be from Rhodesia, Africa and used there to hunt lions. They have this ridge on their back and when they get angry it stands up like a Mohawk. Lovely dogs though. Good for roaming the woods with and talking to. They never talk back. 

How do you get to know your characters?
In bed under the covers. Seriously, they tell me what’s going to happen and what they’ll say. Their conversations come to me. Sometimes from scenes far ahead or even the end scene, which I tend to write first (like reading that last line of a book before buying!). 

When you were younger, did the voices in your head (because lets face it, all us writers do hear them) make you feel different from everyone else?
No, I was in the closet about it! The conversations came to me and I wrote them down. Sometimes they got used later on. I kept them all secret. J

Does music influence your writing?
Oh, yes. I create soundtracks for my characters and their specific scenes. I listen to their songs and then sit down to write. But I write in silence. When I want to feel their pain, love, or torment I listen to the song related to that. I take my imaginary friends with me. I even sneak off to be with them over real people. Weird, I know!
 Nope, not weird at all. ;)

Do you get to have your own writer’s office, or is it a community place full of noise and clutter which you work?
I do have my own office upstairs. I write there half the time or on the couch by the fire with blankets and kitties. The other half I enjoy going to Wegman’s Café and working in the dim light and low buzz enveloping me. There I feel alone in a sea of people.

What inspires you to write?
Going for walks. That is always where my inspiration hits me, where my story lines and conversations come alive. It’s the one place my brain is uncluttered.
Nature is a wonderful thing. 
What’s the first thing you’d do if your stories catapulted you to celebrity statue?
Buy a re-furbished historic stone house out in the country with ten fireplaces lots of nooks and crannies (a ghost or two) and complete with barns, a pond, and a guest cottage (to write in of course!).
 Or have me and the family down!

Advice for aspiring writers on what not to do?
Don’t think your work is perfect and has no need for improvement. I have seen this with numerous writers. They ask for advice then never take it, and keep asking for the same advice. They really want to hear it’s great and don’t want to do the hard work to make their project the best it can be. This gets you nowhere. Be humble. Learn from the master’s. Know you can keep learning your craft and keep doing it better. If you don’t, you may never get published.
So true!
Thanks for having me on Rebecca! You are too much fun! 
You're the best, Donna!
One by one, Laura Armstrong’s friends and adoptive family members are being murdered, and despite her unique healing powers, she can do nothing to stop it. The savage killer haunts her dreams, tormenting her with the promise that she is next.

Determined to find the killer, she follows her visions to the site of a crashed meteorite–her hometown. There, she meets Ben Fieldstone, who seeks answers about his parents’ death the night the meteorite struck. In a race to stop a mad man, they unravel a frightening secret that binds them together. But the killer’s desire to destroy Laura face-to-face leads to a showdown that puts Laura and Ben’s emotional relationship and Laura’s pure spirit to the test.

With the killer closing in, Laura discovers her destiny is linked to his and she has two choices–redeem him or kill him.

Diaries of a Determined Cook: Apple Bacon Tomato Soup

This has totally become a favorite in my house. Everyone was like, "Apple bacon and tomato together? I don't know, Mom." The teenager informed me that it'll 'probably' be good because bacon can make anything taste good. Thanks for the vote of confidence kids! :)

Next time I make this Jewel, I'll have to double the recipe. It all went! I couldn't believe it. You know what? I think I'm finally getting this cooking thing down. LOL

Apple Bacon Tomato Soup
Servings: 8
Prep: 15 min
Cook: 30 min


5 slices of bacon(I used a whole pound minus the 3 slices the kids stole. If you do that, don't add in the salt. Wayyyy too salty.)
1 Tbl olive oil
1/2 white onion, chopped
2 tsp garlic, minced
2 cups beef stock
1 (15,5 oz) can pinto beans
1 (14,5 oz) can Italian-style stewed tomatoes
2 stalks celery, chopped 
1 bay leaf
1 medium apple, thinly sliced
1/2 cup red wine (If you're like me and can't drink wine, even when cooked because of the phosphates, you can't substitute red/white grape juice or apple juice and use the same amount.)
salt and pepper to taste


1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium hight heat until evenly brown. Drain, coarsely chop, and set aside.

2. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, and saute white onion and garlic 3 to 5 minutes, or until tender. Stir in beef stock, pinto beans, tomatoes, celery, and bay leaf. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce hear, and simmer.

3. In a small saucepan over medium hear, cook and stir the apple in the red wine until soft.

4. Mix bacon, apple, and remaining red wine into the soup mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally until well blended.

First looking at this recipe I thought I'd totally mess it up because there seems to be sooo much to do. However, it was quicker than I thought and delicious with French bread served on the side. 

Enjoy and have a Sparkling Day!

Side note: My friend Wendy found this site for me since I'm always calling her to find substitutes for things. Gourmet Sleuth is a wonderful site to find all sorts of things.

Talkin' Tuesday with Diane Escalera!

Hi Diane! The last time I saw you was last year. What the heck have you been up to?
Thank you so much for hosting me.  Again!  I had such a blast the last time, and just had to come back for another visit.  Things have been crazy busy with the release of my latest book, Still Hot for You.  It’s an emotional love story about what happens after the happily ever.

Shay LaCosta screwed up a damn good marriage.  Now she’s on a mission to get a little submission, and get her hunky husband back in her bed.

Sexy, fun, and romantic, Still Hot for You takes a peek into the marriage of Dylan and Shay LaCosta.  Theirs is a hot and steamy union, with an even hotter couple.  Just like in real life, relationships have problems.  But when two people are meant to be, they fight with each other, and they fight for each other.

So, when writing your stories, do you have story boards which you work off of?
While I’m more of a pantser, I do need to have a few things in place such as a working title, my main characters, and the premise of the story.  I like to have an idea where I’m going, but I’m never sure how I’m going to get there until I start writing.  Once I’m into the story, I use a notebook to keep track of each chapter and all the pertinent details.

You’ve written many novels. How long does it normally take you to complete one, start to finish?
I admire those authors who can bang out a book in their sleep.  Unfortunately, I’m not one of them!  A full-length novel can take me several months to write.  Then there’s the editing process…

What surprised you most when it came to becoming an author?
Being a romance author is not as glamorous as people might think.  It takes a lot of hard work, grit and steely determination to make it in this business.

What do your children think of your writing?
My daughter is studying to become an entertainment lawyer.  She thinks it’s pretty cool than I’m author.  And she’d like to represent me!


How’s the doggy?
How funny!  I talk about her enough, right?  What can I say?  My little dachshund keeps a permanent smile on my face.  We have such a lovefest going on. 

Hot bubble baths or hot tub?
Very little beats a hot bubble bath, nice glass of wine, and a candle.  So relaxing.  Ahhh. 

What do you like to do for enjoyment when it’s just you?
That’s easy.  Play with doggie!  I also love to lose myself in a good book, take in some retail therapy, or watch a cheesy flick on the Lifetime Movie Network.  My husband laughs at me, but whatever.    

If you could have any car, what would it be?
A BMW would make me happy.  That’s why I need everybody to buy my book!

Perfect typist or chicken pecker?
Chicken pecker, baby!

What’s the largest/strangest pet you’ve ever had?
Well, the largest pet I ever had was a Labrador.  The strangest thing about her was her owner!


How do you get to know your characters?
Aw, I was having fun.  Okay, let’s see… I spend a lot of time figuring out who my characters are by creating a profile.  So many things shape a person, and I start with their childhood, family, etc.  Where did they come from?  What made them who they are today?

You didn’t know you were going to be a writer but, when you were younger, did you hear the voices in your head? Because lets face it, all us writers do hear them.
Ah, the voices in my head!  Seriously, when I’m fully engaged in the writing process, my characters do have a tendency to steer the story. 

Who’s your own favorite character and why?
That would have to be Sienna Diaz, the heroine in my last book, Dangerous Desire.  She was older with a daughter in college, and I could really relate to her.  What I liked most was that even though she’d been through a painful divorce, she never stopped believing in love.  

Do you get to have your own writer’s office, or is it a community place full of noise and clutter which you work?
I have a space where it is peaceful and quiet and I can write without distractions.

What inspires you to write?
Honestly, I just want to keep writing quality stories and building a readership.  I love my job, and hope to continue to be blessed with the ability to do it.

What’s the first thing you’d do if your stories catapulted you to celebrity statue?
Hide!  I don’t like to be the center of attention.  But I would love to take my family on a swanky vacation.  First stop would be Italy!

Advice for aspiring writers on what not to do?
Don’t give up!  I’d like to share my favorite quote.  It’s on my desk and I read it every day.
“There are two weapons in the writer’s arsenal.  The first is stamina and the second is uncompromising belief in yourself.”

Want to get your man talking?  Give him booty!

Desperate times call for desperate measures. And Shay LaCosta is pretty desperate. She's wrecked her blissful marriage of five years by demanding she and her husband Dylan have a baby. What the hell was she thinking? She knows she was wrong and she’s ready to set things right, if only Dylan will let her. Bet he can’t shun her Booty Camp offer: delicious, white-hot sex in exchange for what’s going on inside his brain.

Dylan may be macho and stubborn, but he really does miss his wife. A little of Shay's pushing gets him past their estrangement and into her web of seduction. She seems to have an erotic week mapped out to perfection, and who is he to complain? Their marriage is meant to be, so they'll fight with each other, and they'll fight for each other.

WARNING: Racy Language, Hot Sex, Seduction

Still Hot for You is available now at Lyrical Press, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, and Digital Bookstores everywhere.

Thank you so much for being here, Diane! I can't wait to read, Still Hot for You. :)

Talkin' Tuesday with Sara Jayne Townsend!

By Sara Jayne Townsend

Writing is a strange business.  Lots of people seem to think it’s easy.  Lots of people seem to think anyone can do it.  No one assumes that just because you can pick up a paintbrush, you can be an artist.  Just because you sing in the shower, you don’t assume you’ve got a voice good enough to win record contracts.  But because we can all form words and put together sentences, some people think this makes everyone a writer.

You know the type of person I mean.  You generally run into them at rather dreary parties – the sort you go to out of obligation, rather than because they’re fun.  When they find out you’re a writer, they give you that smug sort of look and say something like, “oh, I always thought I could write a book.  I just never have the time.”

There are a lot of things wrong in that short declaration, but I’m just going to focus on just one of them.  The time factor.  None of us has enough time to do all the things we want to do in life.  We all have the same number of hours in every day.  There are essential things that take up a great deal of time.  Eating, sleeping, working the day job, feeding the pets, looking after the children, whatever.  Then there are the other things that perhaps aren’t quite so urgent but make demands on our time.  Visiting sick relatives.  Paying the bills.  Grocery shopping.  Answering emails.  Phoning that friend you haven’t seen in months.  Exercise – whether you enjoy it or not.

On top of all this, we writers must find time to write.  And if we are lucky enough to have published work out there, promotion becomes crucial too.  Maintaining an online presence.  Answering interview questions.  Doing guest blog posts.

And before we even get to the question of the things we do for fun, suddenly we already need more than 24 hours in a day to do everything.  And therein lies the problem.  No time.  And yet, it’s not an excuse not to write.  That person who manages to churn out a novel a year has no more time at her disposal than the unpublished writer who’s spent ten years working on her first book.

This is where discipline comes in, and it doesn’t always come naturally.  Sometimes it has to be learned.  My first published novel, SUFFER THE CHILDREN, took me ten years to write.  DEATH SCENE, the second, took two years to write.  What changed?  Mostly I spent more time with my bum in the chair, actually writing.  I also made some lifestyle changes.  For many years I did amateur theatre, something I really enjoy but when I was doing it, I had no time to write.  It had to go.  I also watch a lot less TV than I used to. 

Nowadays I make time to write.  Since I’m not in a position to give up the day job, and said day job involves a long commute into London, it’s sometimes difficult to get motivated in the evenings when I get home from work.  So now I get up early.  By early I mean, being in time for the 6:40am train into London.  I sit in Starbucks for an hour with my NetBook, a soya latte and a ginger muffin and do some writing before going to work.  It works for me.  Even though I get a lot less sleep than I prefer.  If you really struggle to be an early bird (and I speak as someone who at one point in life never thought she could be one), then maybe staying up late and writing when the rest of the household has gone to bed might work for you.  Or spending half an hour less on the Internet, or in front of the TV every evening.  If you are a mother with a particularly demanding family, perhaps you need to introduce a new rule – one day a week, Mummy locks herself away and writes, and no one can disturb her, no matter what.

Making time to write is a well-explored subject, but I think it’s worth making the point again.  If you want to be a successful writer, you need to make time to write.  This might mean making a few life adjustments.  So be it – life doesn’t always let us have what we want.  We all have the same 24 hours at our disposal.  Make them work for you.

Poking around in family closets produces skeletons…

British-born, Toronto-based, actress Shara Summers turns amateur sleuth when her sister is stricken with a mysterious illness. Summoned back to England to be with her family during a time of crisis, Shara discovers doctors are at a loss as to what's causing Astrid’s debilitating sickness.
After her aunt is found dead at the bottom of the stairs the death is deemed an accident. Shara suspects otherwise. Her investigation unearths shocking family secrets and a chilling realization that could have far-reaching and tragic consequences that affect not only her own future, but Astrid’s as well.
