Nearby my house is a small sweetgum tree. Each year, its colors begin to turn long before other hardwoods. Although the change is often due to dry conditions I consider it a reminder that autumn is on the way. We had a hint of fall this week with some much needed rain and cooler temps....

Confession. After ten days of vacation, waking up to an alarm and going to work was hard. With the September days growing shorter, the sun hasn't risen before I leave the house.

Friend and fellow author has a new release coming soon. Preorder your copy now!
Bittersweet. That’s the only way I can describe it. I’m proud to have completed the final installment of the Medici Protectorate series, but I love this world so much, I’m sorry to see it end.
Tortured Soul is the fourth novel in the series. It follows the final member of the Brotherhood (Roberto “Coz” Cozza) and the youngest Medici descendant (Antonia “Toni” Notaro) as they prepare to fight the ultimate battle between good and evil.

And the evil mastermind and the nefarious organization he represents want to use the Medici lineage in their quest for world domination—or kill the girls and their protectors for standing in the way.
