Are you thankful today? I sure am! Here’s why…

Another Canadian Thanksgiving has come and gone. I hope you’ve taken this opportunity, as I have, to think about all the things and people you’re thankful for!

kindness-matters-promo-thanksgiving-christasimpsonMy bestie always calls me a Crazy Canadian for all our silly differences. This holiday is one of them. But, even it you’re not celebrating Thanksgiving right now, it’s a great time to remember what you’re thankful for. Me? I’m thankful for having a loving husband, healthy children, supportive sisters and good parents, a sister-from-another-mister who just gets me, a roof over my head and food in my belly.

You know who else I’m thankful for? (more…)

Dustin Miller is off limits . . .

I know it’s not right to pine for this man, but he’s the one wielding all the power, controlling my body with a single menacing look. He tells me he can be my dark little secret and I’m honestly having a hard time saying no.

I can’t resist him . . .

I’m supposed to be the good-girl librarian, but when I meet a wealthy bad boy with impossibly dark eyes, a beautiful chaos ensues. I tell him it’s a mistake. I demand a do-over. But he has something else in mind. I know I should say no—absolutely not. I should turn around, walk away and never look back. But what do you think happens when he’s a “get what I want, when I want” kind of guy and what he wants is me?

WARNING: This story has vulgar language and explicit adult situations and is for readers 18+ ONLY.

Art in Park - 2016logo

Thanks to everyone who visited me at Tilbury’s First Annual Art in the Park last weekend. The event was a resounding success! Could we have asked for nicer weather? The sprinkling at the end of our day didn’t hurt anyone.😉

Attendance was steady and I was greeted with lots of friendly smiles and good laughs. Traffic was so steady, in fact, that I didn’t even find time to eat lunch! I hope all who bought my books enjoy!!! I can hardly believe I sold out of two titles and just sold out of another title thanks to a satisfied customer who has come back for more! A big thanks goes out to the Tilbury Arts Council for putting on this amazing event. I guess next year I’ll have to bump up my book inventory. Hugs to you all!!

PLAYING HOUSE, A Black Widow Novel


 She’s only playing. He’s playing for keeps.

My name is Clarisse Blackwell. With nothing left to lose, I am a dangerous woman. There’s a reason they call me the Black Widow. My boyfriend died trying to kill me and my husband died trying to save my life.

Destroyed by grief and consumed by an urge to bring revenge so passionately, darkness devours my soul. A master of persuasion, I trick and tease, reducing a grown man to trembling knees to make him see what it’s like to be me. He’ll learn the hard way, as you will, that my sweet revenge only feeds the dark thrill of causing others pain.

Lying. Cheating. Stealing. It’s what I do. You think you know me? You don’t, and neither does the man whose life mustn’t be worth living anymore. Our relationship is like an explosion set to detonate on my command. He thinks he knows me. His mistake. He thinks he’s different. He doesn’t believe I’m cursed. I’ll make him believe.

Lives will end, minds will be blown, and one thing is for certain:

the Black Widow will strike again.
