Navy SEALs

5d4dd6206d2b0d647c8b94ca84b7b11a Writing stories about the United States Navy SEALs has required a lot of research into the training and life of these talented soldiers. I’ve always had a deep respect for the military, and this has only strengthened it. My father fought in Vietnam and went on to become Captain in the United States Army Rangers. As you may know, the Rangers are also considered elite operatives and take on threats all over the world. I just finished writing the sixth book in my Texas SEALs series, and am about to start book seven. Each books follows the life of one SEAL and his unique struggles to find and accept love. With all of the books, the extreme bond of brotherhood between all of the SEALs helps them get through tricky situations, both in their missions and in their personal life. The first book in the Texas Navy SEALs series will be out at the end of July. I can’t wait to share it with all of you!

Texas Football Season

football As the summer comes to a close, a new Football Season begins. If you live in Texas or are familiar with Texas, you know that Football is a big thing for us. My son plays High School football and loves his position as a nose tackle. Basically, he just loves being able to tackle anyone, especially the quarterback on the opposing team when his hands are still on the ball. It is a ritual in our house that every year when the NFL Season starts, I make a big batch of Armadillo Eggs, a special, spicy treat that my family (and my son’s coaches) love. I’ll share the recipe in a different post soon, but it is essentially sausage, jalapeños, and cheese baked together to form a crispy outer crust and a gooey center. Do you have any special rituals to kick-off football season in your home?

School Daze

This summer we went on a family vacation to Las Vegas, which was an absolute blast, and also Denver where I attended the Romance Writer’s of America Conference. This summer I wrote two new manuscripts for the Texas  Navy SEALs series coming out starting next summer, and got to spend time with some amazing authors. What is your best memory of this summer?
