Hip-Deep in Magic

For the first time ever, I find myself working on material I know will be published.  It’s very exciting, doubly so because I’m not working on only one book but on two!  I’m finishing up Guardian, the second book in my fantasy romantic suspense series, to send it to my editor and doing the copy edits on the first book, Renegade, for its November 6 release (Yes, this November–squee!).    I don’t have time to write much in the way of an update because I’m on deadline, but I love being hip deep in my magical world.  It sure beats
