Photo’s from The Gift Day event, Rio de Janeiro, 10th June
I’d never been to Ireland before, and it was a flying visit in October, but I met so many lovely people at #Claddagh16. I certainly enjoyed ‘the creic’!
Edinburgh was buzzing this July with authors and readers galore for #RARE16!
It was so busy, I hardly had time to get my camera out, but here are just a few pix that I managed to snap.
Crystals’ 30th birthday coincided with the event. It was all a bit much for this gorgeous gal who’d flown in from Maimi. Aw, hugs, Crystal!
My new play, co-written with former ATO Mike Speirs is debuting this summer. Listen to this interview with BBC Radio host, Tiffany Truscott.
Listen to another interview with Penwith Radio’s David Hackett
‘Later, After’ tells the story of Alex Hunter, a former soldier struggling to re-enter civilian life.
Wow, Tulsa! I’ve got to say I totally fell in love with Oklahoma. Such a friendly place with lovely people, and those beautiful rolling Osage Hills … even if the casino at the Hard Rock Hotel felt subterranean!
Huge thanks to the very wonderful Sheena Lumsden for all her help and being a fabulous unofficial PA, and to Tyler Gattuso for helping to raise nearly $600 for EOD Warrior Foundation
And I must give a shout-out to author Michelle Mankin who donated a pair of Foo Fighter tickets to raffle off for EODWF.
I met so many fabulous people – definitely memorable!
Each issue I’ll be answering a question that YOU want to ask. Maybe it’s: what it’s like to be a romance writer? Or how do you choose your cover models? (with hard research!)
Q: Are you friends with other writers?
A: Quite a few! Some I’ve met and some are FB friends, but it’s good to have a
group (and two of them are men!) that I can go to talk about indie publishing and the book world. And we talk about you guys as well!
Q: Do you have time to read books?
A: Absolutely! I love reading. I used to find it distracting to read while I was in the middle of writing a book, but now I find it helps me to relax so, hopefully, my
characters will let me sleep at night!
Out and About
So far, I’ve put my name down for two signings in 2015. But do keep checking to see where else I’ll be.
Coming to a Screen Near you!
I’m so excited to tell you about my new book THE TRAVELING MAN!
Even better, all PRE-ORDERS will cost you just 99₡ before the launch, when the price will be $3.99.
THE TRAVELING MAN is published on January 27.
The cover is designed by the fabulous HANG LE who’s worked on all my covers for the last 18 months. Lucky me! I love this magical picture, and hot model TYLER GATUSSO, who was photographed for me by MICHAEL ANTHONY DOWNS.
THE TRAVELING MAN
Kes hadn’t invited me to sit down, but my legs were shaking, so I plopped down
on one of the small built-in sofas and looked up.
He was leaning with his shoulder propped against the door, one long leg crossed over the other and arms folded.
He was taller than I remembered, perhaps by as much as three or four inches,
and much broader. Under his t-shirt his chest was well defined, and his biceps
popped as moved his arms. His hair was a shade darker than the pictures in my
memory, and his face was narrower—the roundness of childhood long gone. The dark scruff on his chin was new. My Kes hadn’t needed to shave.
I finally met his eyes. Those were the same. Still silvery-gray with the curious
dark blue ring around the iris. And now they were staring at me without a hint of
I licked my lips and watched his eyes drop almost reflexively before he looked
up again angrily.
“What are you doing here, Aimee?”

“In my dreams, my travelling man would take me to…” I’ll pick my favorite answer on 20th January—a week before publication!
