ELDER MOON – Gladstone Shifters, Book 5

Progress report: Ready to begin Chapter 8 – 20,900 words.

The story is coming along nicely, though not as fast as I would like. I’m coming up on some scenes that should be really fun to write – all part of the interwoven threads of drama, intrigue, and romance. This book is somewhat different, in that the primary romantic relationship comes later in the story. Meanwhile, there are sexy scenes with other characters – some you know and others new to the series. I didn’t set out to do it this way, but the story demands a non-traditional approach. Trust me, you’ll see why once you read the book.

If you have been following the series, you’ll know that True Elders are an important part of the world I have created. In this book, they really get a chance to shine as the winds of change whistle through shifter packs everywhere. It turns out that Luna intended to stir things up all along!

Future Projects:

Holiday Mates

The idea was to write at least four in the series, in between the Gladstone novels. I have no idea exactly when each book will be released or which holiday will be featured. A minimum four-month window is needed prior to the intended holiday, or I may be forced to write the story and then hold it for release at the proper time. It’s going to be tricky, but I will update my progress here.


Scattered Humanity

I envision this as a series of Sci-Fi novels or novellas with a common backstory linking them together. Cool aliens, awesome new worlds, and humans in distress. You won’t believe some of the awesome stuff I have planned. Great space opera without all the singing!

NOTE – I’m HUNGRY to write some Sci-Fi, but must finish the other two series I’m working on before that happens. Yeah, it’s frustrating!


Curiosity Shoppe

This will be a series of shorter works with a mix of genres: fantasy, paranormal, Sci-Fi, and romance. Pay a visit to the shoppe and pick up a little something to take home. Every customer is guaranteed to get more than their money’s worth! And what about that mysterious shopkeeper and her “cat”? Irresistible reading in delicious bites!


Canceled – Retail Men Series

Green’s Thumb is now a standalone, but it, too, would benefit from an overhaul – including significant new material. It remains available for purchase as-is for now. (Cover was changed in June of 2020).

Reader feedback tells me fans really appreciated the older characters in Green’s Thumb, as there aren’t a lot of books out there for this demographic. I’m actively gathering information for future silver romances with characters over 50, whether stand-alones or a series. There is no set timeline for this project.


More Paranormal/Fantasy – Future books may include bear and cat shifters, elves, fairies, brownies, genies, giants, merfolk, cupids, and unicorns. I’m eager to write about all of them! (some of these ideas may show up in the Curiosity Shoppe series – see note above).


Types of stories I won’t write

You’ll have to find a different author if you are looking for books with angels, demons, witches, vampires, or zombies. They just aren’t my cup of tea.


Out of Print

My first novel, Second Chance Earth is no longer available for purchase. Why? See my blog post for the explanation.
