santaornamentAs we wind down 2016, I want to thank all of you who follow me. I wish for you all the best of the season and most wonderful moments in 2017. I’ve come to believe the moments that bring the greatest times of peace and happiness.

Whenever I look at the little fella in the photo, I smile. This is the only ornament that survived my childhood, and I treasure my little ukulele skiing Santa who has lost his arms and is held together with construction paper and tape. But still he reminds me of happy times filled with all the joy of Christmas.

And because I’m an author and always involved in something, I’m happy to announce the release of Winter Solstice, a box set filled with novels about second chances at love. Eight authors from the Summer Solstice box set return to give you some stories to warm you on even the coldest of nights.






p-c-zicks-latestBig news today as I release another book in the Kindle World of Melissa Foster’s Remingtons. Known as “fan fiction,” by some, this steamy romance borrows a couple of Melissa’s characters from her Love in Bloom: The Remingtons series.

Jingle Bell Love brings back the characters I created in Love on the Wind. This time it’s Jill and Denny who are hopelessly in lust with one another despite their friends believing it’s a bad idea.remington-kindle-worlds-romances-by1

Four other Remington World books released today as well. I hope you’ll check them all out for a rollicking good time during the holidays. All of the covers were designed by Calinda Be.
