New Book Out!

It's been a long wait, but I'm happy to announce my new book, Baby Gone Bye, is now available in both print and electronic versions.

Check for Baby Gone Bye

Writing this book was a new and exciting challenge. After writing five books in the Unbidden Magic series, I bid Allie Emerson farewell and said "Hello" to eighteen-year-old Gabe Delgado, the protagonist of Baby Gone Bye.

In case you're wondering, the new book is considered a crossover book. In other words, it's a bit edgier than my previous young adult books.

Here's a quick blurb: "High school senior Gabe Delgado is trying to trade his bad boy days for clean living. He remembers nothing about the night a mysterious girl loved him and left him at a party, except ...there was a kind of magic around her. Now, he finds that "magic" in a basket on his doorstep, cooing at him like a happy little bird."

It soon becomes apparent little Birdie is no ordinary baby and Gabe must not only finish his senior year and try for a basketball scholarship, but also keep his baby safe from the bad people who want her.

Loyal Reader Rewards

Because you are my loyal readers, I will draw a name from the list of subscribers. Someone will be receiving a signed copy of Baby Gone Bye soon!

What's next for me? I want to return to writing fiction for adults and have a couple of projects in mind. As soon as they are firmed up, I'll share them with you.

Auggie's Corner

Guess you can tell by this picture that I'm worn to a frazzle. Time-out for a quick snooze on Dad's legs.

Here's what's going on in my life. First, I had to ride in that scary, fast-moving metal thing for three long days when we did something the parental units call "going south for the winter." Now, I have a long list of duties in addition to being Marilee's muse. First off, I have to wake up the Mister at six a.m. so we can go for our walk, where I try to "water" each tree. It's a big job. Sometimes the tank goes dry.

After a hearty breakfast, I stand on the back of the couch, look out the window and scan the neighborhood for danger. Then, I go outside and guard the perimeter. Unfortunately, I've been told to keep my barking to a minimum. Add to that all the new dog friends I'm expected to meet and greet, and you'll see how exhausting my life is. How much can one little dog handle? As for the muse part, I just use my "cuteness" to inspire Marilee. I guess it's working 'cause she keeps pounding away on her keyboard.

My eyelids are getting heavy and my ears are drooping. Guess it's time for another nap.
