The Baby is Out

KatiebabyWoohoo! It’s done. I’m not sure how I should feel about it, a little sick and nervous, but so very relieved.

Wow. Reading through this, I really do sound like a new mother. I remember my first labor. My sweet boy screamed at the nurses. My hubby held my hand. All at the same time I felt such joy, yet loss because “the kid” who had been my constant companion for nine months was no longer Continue reading

GRIME BEAT Coming Soon!

Dallas skyline eveningDue to Release Tuesday, April 14, 2015 from Amazon.com

Dani Foster’s work as a crime scene cleaner in Dallas sometimes turns up more trouble than she anticipates. And when her best friend turns up missing, Dani has no idea that something she found put them both in danger. Suspicions fall on handsome Jay Hunter, the crime scene specialist that her team usually cleans up after. But he’s also the only person willing to help her find out what happened to her friend. Dare she trust him even when lies seem to surround him?

Dani amuses Jay. Her penchant for speaking and acting without regard to the consequences land her in the funniest situations. But her latest moves have thrust her into serious danger. As he learns more about her circumstances, her risk rises until her very life is on the line. He has no time or inclination for romance, but this girl needs him and she seems to have no one else. How can he turn his back?

GRIME BEAT is the first episode of the Grime Fighters series set in Dallas, Texas. Dani’s trouble and Jay’s attraction are only just beginning!

Excerpt:

Dani couldn’t go home, now. She’d never sleep with her friend maybe hurt or sick. She walled against worse scenarios. Something had happened. That much was clear.

A little dog from the apartment under Tasha’s started yapping. Sounded like a terrier. A sliding patio door opened, and Dani froze. The barking volume increased, and the door slid into place with a click, leaving the dog scratching at the high patio fence.

She backed away, eyeing the enclosure. That really was a high wooden fence. Looked sturdy. She glanced to the top floor. The upper level held more of a balcony with a waist-high rail and pickets. And she could reach the bottom of them from the top of the lower porch.

This was worth a try.

Backing up several feet, she took a running jump to the top edge of the wooden fence.

As I built memes to share about my new Grime Fighter Christian novella series, I made a number of them that just didn’t quite fit my focus. But they’re still so much fun! I just had to share! Feel free to pin these or share them on Facebook, but please link them back to this page!
