Posted Aug 12 2008 in , ,

One of my RWA (Romance Writers of America) chaptermates brought my attento to this MSNBC clip from the Today Show about romance novels and the recent RWA conference in San Francisco.

Posted Mar 30 2008 in ,

I’ve been asked lately by a few new writers why I chose to write under a pen name and how I came up with it. There are lots of reasons to consider a pen name if you’re a writer. Privacy was a consideration of mine. After all, I have aspirations of being a NYT bestseller […]
