What's new for the Warwick Valley Romance Authors?

Hello again! Yes, it is officially the new year. 2016. How long will it take for me to remember that each time I write out a check?

This month the WVRA will be doing some self-promotion and talking about any new releases we have coming up.


So, I currently have two ebooks published, Already Home and One Good Catch, books 1 and 2 in the Maguire's Corner series.

Coffee shop owner Maggie Maguire doesn’t trust the new police chief her father hired to protect Maguire’s Corner. He’s a stranger, cold, bossy and annoyingly handsome. But, Maggie’s witnessed a serious crime and now someone’s trying to kill her. The man that aggravates her most might be the only one that can help her.

Police Chief Jack Munro likes his new job and his new town, and unfortunately he also likes the stubborn but beautiful town sweetheart. His self-imposed hands-off Maggie policy is about to be put to the ultimate test when he must keep her close to protect her while he tracks down a ruthless killer.

Determined to ignore Jack’s charms, Maggie attempts to help him unravel the mystery but when their lives hang in the balance she must decide how much she’s willing to risk to save the man she suddenly can’t resist.


Ignoring a recent trauma that is affecting her everyday life, ER Doctor Kate Maguire engages in some high risk activities, but putting herself in these dangerous situations isn’t enough to feed her edginess. She needs something more. When her brother’s high school best friend comes back to town, it’s her chance for a ‘no strings attached’ fling with the man who still headlines in all her best dreams.

Rhys MacGrath’s days of one-night-stands are long over. The pro-football player might be side-lined at rehab for a shoulder injury, but that doesn’t mean he can’t admire and desire the all-grown-up, so-damn-hot, version of the tomboy he once knew. His sudden interest in Kate might be aggravating his best friend, who doesn’t approve, but it’s her indifference that’s driving Rhys crazy.

Everything heats up when Kate’s nosy nature sets her in the line of fire of an arsonist forcing them to deal with more than just the sparks igniting between them.

I'm just finishing up a short story, yet to be named, for an anthology that will be out mid-2016. It has lots of characters from Maguire's Corner, including Jack and Maggie.

I've been working on book 3 in the Maguire's Corner series and hope to publish that this year as well.

Eventually, I hope to re-edit my original completed novel, Setting the Record Straight. It's been languishing on my computer for far too long, but it needs a lot of work.

Where else can you find me on the inter-web?

I have an Author FB page where I post bits and pieces of work, but mostly hot guy pictures. :)

My blog, where I spend most of my time, is called The Waiting is the Hardest Part.

There I discuss/vent/share/rant about everything from my personal life to my writing to The X-Files.
