The Night Docket is LIVE!

This book is finally out, and I am really excited about it. I write all kinds of stuff…crime, urban fantasy, and romance. This story pulls together my love of crime fiction together with urban fantasy, along with some of my favorite themes…trouble, redemption, and the power of friends and family to help you transcend your challenges.

It also comes full circle for me, work wise. I’m one of those people who has had a million jobs in her life. I’ve worked as an aerobics instructor, administrative assistant, cocktail waitress, house painter, mother’s helper, office temp, ID checker, Mom, artist’s model…on and on I could go.

And I worked as a lawyer, too, for a while.

Nicole’s storefront office brought me back to my own past, and to some of the most fulfilling work I’ve ever done.

I represented clients in the cities of New Haven, Connecticut, and Buffalo, New York, and the work was gritty and satisfying and soulful. Chasing Nicole Farmer down the streets of Amistad reminded me of the bittersweet victories and searing defeats my clients experienced in their lives, and how lucky I was to get to work with them and help them achieve their goals.

Standing up for my clients’ legal rights taught me how to stand my ground. It was a long, wild ride, and I don’t think I would have become a novelist if I hadn’t had the chance to do it.

I hope that you enjoy the story!

Coming Soon: Two New Releases

A lot of fun stuff to share…

But first, a quick update on how things are going out here. I got slammed along with the rest of the tri-state area by Superstorm Sandy and the big snowstorm that came the week after. So I have been offline for a long time. It gave me time to think (and scheme) and ultimately that is all for the good. But I am still reeling from the  suffering of all the people here who are still grappling with the aftermath of these storms. And also amazed by the awesomeness of so many of my friends and neighbors :)

On to the stories. I have stories in two new anthologies that are coming out in the next few weeks, and wanted to show you the beautiful covers and give you a quick overview of each. I had such a great time writing these two very different stories, and will give you the heads up again when they go live.

“The Phoenix of Mulberry Street”

A short story set in the rich, lush, gorgeous historical fantasy universe of Mercedes Lackey’s Elemental Masters. Muckraker and Fire Master Jane Emerson rescues a mysterious little match girl and does battle with a robber baron with a dragon’s lust for treasure. Magic on the Lower East Side in 1885…I loved writing this story, in this world. Publishers Weekly called this story “complex and evocative.”

I think the other stories in this collection are masterful! Out December 4th…here are some purchase links for you:

Book Depository:




“Fade Away and Radiate”

A futuristic tale of betrayal and redemption on a faraway snow-blasted planet. Set in my Netherwood universe, and featuring Anika Bowman, an interplanetary gardener running  for her life from the truth back on Earth. She can’t resist the brash, sexy as hell, genetically-modified soldier hell-bent on saving her from corporate murderers…love found in a dangerous time.

This looks to be an amazing anthology of futuristic romance stories, coming out in January — I’m looking forward to reading these stories myself. Here are the buy links:
