Imagine Sookie without Bon Temps and Fangtasia. Mercy without wolfpack politics, fae intrigue or vampire vicissitudes in the Pacific Northwest. Rachel Morgan without Cincinnati or the Ever-After or the Hollows. Hard, yes? Now, imagine Mercy without Adam. Sookie without Bill, Eric, Alcide, Eric, Quinn, Eric, and Sam. Or Rachel without Nick (the slimeball), Kisten, … Continue reading

What we’re reading: Magic Bites
Yes, I must stand up and admit it. I am the last person in the known universe to have not read the Kate Daniels series, that paragon of paranormal by the husband-wife team of Gordon and Ilona Andrews. My blog readers are all mad about Curran, but I’m behind with all my favorite series. How … Continue reading
Genre Talk: Serial Novels, Yea or Nay?
Happy Monday…or is that an oxymoron? I’m over at My Book Addiction today, taking part in a talk about serial novels (with a giveaway, so check it out), so I thought I’d bring that discussion here as well. Just to bring you up to date, a serial novel is a full-length novel released in “episodes,” … Continue reading
Gender Equity, Fantasy Edition
There’s a lot of brouhaha going on over in the land of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America these days about the sci fi/fantasy world old-boys’ network, or the perception of it, and whether said organization buys into it or not. And I have an opinion, yes I do, but I don’t plan to … Continue reading
What are we reading? Foodie Edition
Lately, when my turn rolls around to do the “What We’re Reading” feature, I’ve been at a loss. With two (soon to be three, four and five) novels due in under nine months, I am, quite frankly, writing and doing the day-job thing and little else. But then I realized, I AM reading something–it’s just … Continue reading
What We’re Reading? You Might Be Surprised!
I’m cheating a little today because this running department called “What We’re Reading” is supposed to be a place for us to chat about what’s currently atop our TBR piles. The presumption is that we’re reading somewhere along the paranormal spectrum. Don’t get me wrong; I read a LOT. But when I’m actively writing, and … Continue reading

Suzanne Johnson’s Elysian Fields: Paranormal Love Zentangle
Release day is a funny thing for most authors–we’re fairly quiet, introverted people who suddenly feel the need to run all over the cyber-universe waving our hands and screaming “buy my new book!” So I did a lot of running around and screaming yesterday as ELYSIAN FIELDS made its debut, a bouncing 340-page baby filled … Continue reading
Paranormals … Living in the Real World
Should science fiction and fantasy explore real events? Should speculative fiction address tragedies recent enough to still be part of the world’s collective consciousness? Should certain subjects be sacrosanct or relegated only to “serious” (i.e., literary) fiction or to historians? When I set out to write Royal Street, the first book in my Sentinels of … Continue reading
