Happy Valentine’s Day


Giveaway Alert!


Happy Valentine’s Day, a 24-hour time period that celebrates ROMANCE! And what better topic to write about than Hallmark Romances? Do you watch? At Christmas or year-round?

I can’t say that I have a Hallmark movie being filmed right now for next Christmas season BUT, I have a few screenplays that are being shopped around Hollywood for just that purpose. One of them has big interest from a producer and I’m waiting for a call from him today. Stay tuned to my social media to find out if/when the cameras start rolling at a snowy mountain lodge when two very different groups show up to rent the same house at Christmas time.

I write in two genres – Romance and Suspense. Sometimes I merge the two as in the case of my most successful novel NECESSARY DETOUR. As I type this, I’m on a break from writing the screenplay in hopes of Lifetime buying it. 

I also write in two formats – Novels and Screenplays, if you haven’t guessed. This all started when my 3-Book series The Dream Jumper was optioned for film and the producer asked me to write the screenplay. Then, my agent asked me to write a Hallmark type Christmas movie seeing it’s a growing phenomenon. I adapted my novella Christmas in Whistler to a screenplay, but my villain was too mean for Hallmark and the main characters too edgy. I rewrote the screenplay but left the book edgy. When you read Christmas in Whistler, see what you think. Then, I wrote another screenplay and another with the Hallmark movie template in mind and gave them to my agent.

At this time of year, I always give my Christmas books a break until October. This year, however, I’m keeping them on Amazon, in hopes of announcing a movie deal soon. Join my Facebook Beach Club for all the news—link is below.

Christmasin Love is 4 Books, all set during Christmas. Two are kind of sexy, one is sweet and the last one is a Suspense. They are perfect Valentine’s Day reads, especially if you’re shut up in the house with snow and a Kindle. Kisses under the mistletoe and sleigh rides under tartan blankets, Christmas cookie baking, present wrapping and caroling in a fluffy snowfall.

I made the set .99 for affordability purposes and hope you get hours of enjoyment reading the novellas. If you do, I hope you’ll review.

Happy Romance Day, Everyone!
