For writers: getting out of your comfort zone

Play it safe or get out of your comfort zone?  Here’s a two-part essay I wrote on the topic, drawing on my own experiences.

Part 1

Part 2 

Upcoming publications

Here’s an update of what’s on the way the next few months.

My next Young Adult Historical/Sports novel is scheduled for an October 15 release date. If you likedCracking the Ice, you’ll love this new title. It’s set in 1967, the year before Cracking the Ice, and includes a minor role for that novel’s hero, Jessie Stackhouse. This time, the sport is football with some baseball sprinkled in. But whether you’re a sports fan or not, I think you’ll find this book a compelling read.

For romance fans who liked Body Check, your next title is slated for a Christmas release. I’m hard at work on it now and although there’s still a long way to go, I’m really excited about this one.

I still don’t have a publication date for my story “Huram’s Temple” in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, but I’ll be sure to let you know as soon as I know.

Body Check released in e-book formats

Body Check, my new romance novel, is now available in most electronic formats.

Sportswriter Olivia Turnbull covers the Blades, Boston’s professional hockey team. She’d never break the taboo against dating one of the players. The temptation never even crosses her mind.

Until, that is, the Blades trade for Chad Finnegan. She and Chad enjoyed a torrid love affair during their college days and when he arrives, one look dooms them both.

Their love breaks all the rules, but the forbidden fruit tastes too sweet until they learn that it could cost them everything.

Body Check provides an insider’s view of newspapers, sports writing, and hockey, but most of all, it tells a captivating tale of star-crossed lovers.
