I have a Pinterest Board!

It’s really just for fun more than anything. I created some boards to put pictures I’ve found around the web (or, in some cases, taken myself) that were inspirational for characters, clothing, places, etc. For instance, the photo for this post is exactly how I envision the Sultana, the wise ruler of the desert city in  my fantasy romance, When Darkness Falls.

Of course I have the requisite board for such things as Maine Coon cats, crafts,  etc., LOL.

NaNoWriMo 2016 Winner!

November 27 at approximately 11:53 pm, I finished NaNo! Official word verification was 52,614 (or something like that! LOL!).

My NaNo project this year was “When  Darkness Falls,” a paranormal fantasy romance set deep in the middle eastern desert. Here’s the mini-synopsis I came up with for my NaNo page:

This is a paranormal romance set in a medieval middle eastern city deep in the desert. Ruled by a gracious, wise ruler, the humans dwell in uneasy peace with the vampires and demons who claim the lands as their ancestral homelands, ruled over by an ancient, powerful vampire. The shaky truce becomes strained when a young human woman arrives on a caravan from distant lands. Orphaned and alone, she seeks only to make a new life for herself. A life that quickly becomes complicated when she draws the attention of the Dark Lord himself.
