I’m back after an noticeable absence from the weekly Hooks blog hop. Forgive me for being missing in action. I currently have not one but two WIPs. Given the way I work, that’s terribly unwise — but while I usually hold sway over my Muse, sometimes she throws me curve balls and strikes out my […]

I, Effing Feline, wish Brett a happy birthday! Brett is the third of Mr V’s four children, and his petting  hand is gentle and loving, even if he’s a dog person. There. I’ve done my familial duty. Now I can tell you my REAL feelings about dog people! I feel that — Sigh. Once again, I’m […]

My fun thing for today is a “travel poster” for my most recent science fiction romance: Rescuing Prince Charming. I’ve done travel posters for my other books, too, based on the […]

I’m continuing with the opening of my SFR adventure WIP tentatively titled Secrets of Love and War. Last […]

I, Effing Feline, live a hard, hard life. To whit, four days a week, when Mrs V (with occasional help from Mr V) babysits their two grandchildren, I must suffer a seven-month-old baby. I’ve taught the four-year-old about my claws; Wesley treats me graciously. But the seven-month old! Quel horreur! Young Logan likes to grab […]

It’s been awhile since I indulged in a MidWeek Tease, but like a bad penny, here I am.  A huge shout out to author Angelica Dawson for hosting our blog hop, where authors share tempting snippets to tide you over till the weekend.
