Welcome to my Work In Progress Blog! This is where you get the scoop on my next book. More specifically, I will take you behind the scenes as I am drafting it. The following blog posts are excerpts from my writing journal. Be advised, they may contain swear bombs, grammatical inconsistencies, and heavy doses of sarcasm.
Chapter 14, Scene 2. Beau and PJ’s sweater. Hmmm. Probably shouldn’t have gone there. This might not make it through editing.
New goal: 60,000 words by end of February and gotta include some kissing action somewhere in that business. Why do I slow burn the hell outta my ships? I’m kind of mean that way. Also, note to self: Start researching water-skiing terminology. Another note to self: Reexamine the southern idioms. They might be a little […]
Wrapping up Ch. 13. At 29, 133 words. Only need about 900 more by Friday to meet self-imposed writing goal, so I can give myself buckets of gold stars. Can do attitude, DB. Be the ball, Happy. Just fucking do it, Dots.
Ha, ha! Taco Tuesday, Shirley Temples, flirting, tension. Loving Chapter 9.

My boys just went back to school today, and I’m finally back at my desk after a long break from the writing. Only on Chapter 3 of Book 3. This is going to suck. Six hours later… I have just listened to “9 to 5” like fifteen times, laughed twice, and knocked out most of […]
Just Googled “testicular torsion”. PJ has sharp fingernails and zero patience for assholes. Not sure she should have been kicked out of school for this.
Chapter 1 Beau is not happy with PJ. They are returning to Baton Rouge after helping the Sac Brownings with the Kory situation. Things are a little tense on the flight.
Officially starting the third one. Right now, I’m just calling it “The PJ and Beau Book”. PJ is a noisy chick inside my head, but I think I love her. Now I just have to get Beau to love her. How hard could that be?
