What I am reading now

I know it sounds a bit odd, but since I write historical fantasy, I don’t actually read a lot of fantasy whilst in the midst of a rewrite. It tends to clog my brain, like a gutter full of leaves, and the thoughts get bumped along a winding path instead of a straight shot to the downspout.

So when I am deep in the heart of rewrites, I tend to read out-genre, and right now that is a combination of erotica and vintage spy thrillers. I know, diverse genres, but all great reads.

What are you reading right now, and what book are you looking forward to reading next?


I am so excited right now, it is a wonder I can type.
I just registered for ConCarolinas, a three day sci-fi and fantasy conference in Charlotte, NC. I went for the first time last year, and loved the diversity it offered to authors of all stages in career, to fangirls and boys, to readers, and to persons who love sci-fi and fantasy in all its many forms.

There are literary guests, media guests, gamers, cosplayers, and more. A great time to be had by all. So, if you want to meet me in person, or have a chat about books and things, I will be in Charlotte May 29-31. Hope to see you there.

Welcome to the renovated site

Welcome to the renovated website- I hope you will find it easier to navigate, easier to enjoy, and easier to find links to my books:)

I want to thank the folks at www.xuni.com. Maddee and the gang made a challenging process one to enjoy.

I look forward to chatting about all things Caribbean, about my work, reading lists, great books we are reading, favorite bookstores- all things readerly and writerly.

So I bid you a good day, and happy reading.
