Free writing seminars in the Chicago ‘burbs

Very excited to have discovered that my local libraries are doing a FREE three-part writers workshop/seminar in March.

First is on editing/revising, second is on using social media to market yourself and your books and third is how to connect to bloggers and reviewers.

Needless to say, I signed up for all three. I’m hoping I learn something new! If anyone wants to come to Bloomingdale and Carol Stream let me know and I’ll send you the registration link.

Hunted Soldier begins!

Second hardest thing about writing a book, after naming all your characters? Writing the opening sentence(s). But I’m happy to say I’ve accomplished it!

“Cloaked in darkness, adrenaline thrumming through his veins, he crept forward silently, blending into his surroundings. Just another shadow.”

Hunted Soldier has begun!

Hunted Soldier outline – DONE!

The outline for Hunted Soldier (Shadow Unit Book 3) is DONE! [happy dance] Now the scary part starts – actually writing it! LOL! I lost my writing mojo back in October after just beginning the outline, but a few weeks ago the Muse returned and I was reinvigorated to complete it. Feels good! I’m now eager to get Connor and Shawn’s next adventure down on the page. 🙂 Hope you’re all eager to read it!

Connor and Shawn – Favorite Couple 2016


I am SO honored to have Shawn and Connor chosen as Freya’s Favorite Character Couple in 2016 at Sinfully Gay Romance!! – “Sergeant Connor Finley and Sergeant Shawn Weller are from Jamie Lynn Miller’s ‘Shadow Unit’ books. The way this couple understand and support each other through life and death situations is touching. They are tough and badass, but soft and caring towards each other too. My heart melted for them.”

This week’s word was “DRINK”. Check out Matthew and Daniel in Darkness Falls!

BUY LINK: ** Available in .mobi, .epub and .pdf **


Matthew Tucker is a successful actor on a hit television show, his career on the rise. Life is good. What more could he want?

 Daniel Westman, that’s what – his co-star and close friend for the last two years.

Matthew desires more than friendship with Daniel, though, his attraction for the other man growing day by day. So much so that Matthew gives up the safety and security of his current long-term relationship for the slimmest chance of a relationship with Daniel, feeling there’s something between them, just under the surface. And he was gambling his happiness on it.

But months go by, with Matthew suddenly afraid to go forward, to make the first move, to tell Daniel he was falling in love with him. Because if he was wrong, and Daniel was just being his natural charming self and Matthew was looking too deeply into it…he’d lose his best friend.

So instead Matthew longs for his friend in silence, until an accident on set may leave Daniel permanently blind. With his friend hurt, scared and confused, his life possibly forever altered, Matthew never wavers from Daniel’s side, no matter how difficult it gets.

His dedication brings them closer than ever before , but is it possible to find happiness, and love, in the wake of a tragedy? Or has Matthew’s hesitation cost him that chance and he’ll lose Daniel to the darkness instead?
