Learning to Surf

You may have noticed that I had been quiet since the release of Nine Years Away. No promo, no blogging, nada. I can’t go into these reasons without sounding angry (and at this point I don’t have the energy to be angry) but when it came out all I wanted to do was work on the next book.  The next book’s…

Nine Years Away: Available for Preorder!

Will the secrets of the past destroy their future? Kim Del Rosario was abandoned by her date at the prom, and worse, she had the most terrible humiliation of her life that night. Never mind that Christian Mendiola was called away on an emergency—his absence hurt as much as the emotional blows that she’d been dealt with then. Nine years…

Work Mode

So…you’re probably wondering what I’ve been up to lately. Last time I promised you a brand-new blog entry, but that fell by the wayside when my beloved Tiya passed away; her burial coincided with the Sunday that I planned to post my entry, so between the wake and the funeral, I hadn’t had a lot of time to recover. Once…

So This Is Goodbye: A Personal Letter

Note to readers: This isn’t goodbye to The Great Big Jump! Regular programming for this blog will continue starting next week.  Hey you, Apparently this isn’t the first time I’ve written about you here.  I’m sure one of our friends may have already told you about it, so I’m not going to give you a recap. My feelings may be…
