After I do get a shower in, it's time to get to the computer to write until the kids get home...and since my workstation is located on my kitchen island, there's really no one to impress except the pets. But autumn brings soccer season, back-to-school events, author presentations clustered around Halloween, and a class in Fiction I'm teaching at the local community college. I'm going to have to look varying degrees of presentable for these engagements. And when I can, I like to add some personality to my wardrobe with a little hint of my passions - writing and fitness.

Since I only have boys, I'm not very attuned to what teenage girls like...but I needed a gift idea for my character Dothan to give Jamie in my Young Adult Paranormal Romance DIVINE FALL. I put out a call for suggestions on my FaceBook page, and the overwhelming response at that time was Alex and Ani bracelets. I wasn't entirely sure what those were, but I looked it up and they seemed perfect. Dothan gave Jamie on with the initial "J", a horse charm, and of course an angel charm.

I look for other fashion ideas on Pinterest, and that really helps me pull outfits together, especially for author events. I even found a fantastic pair of shoes created by someone with a love for Romance novels...you can see them on my Pinterest Fashion Board. I'd buy them in a heartbeat, if only they were for sale! Maybe I can channel my crafty side (it makes brief appearances occasionally) and try my hand at making my own? I know which three covers I'd start the collage with! If you need some great paranormal reads to get in the Halloween mood--steamy romance mixed with spooky suspense--try my ghost story/romances GULL HARBOR or SILVER LAKE. And my latest release is a Young Adult novel, DIVINE FALL, involving a Fallen angel, filled with forbidden love and supernatural secrets, and appropriate for ages 13 and up.
Enjoy the fall!
