Here is the official blurb and links!

BLURB: Christmas comes sooner than expected in the Big Easy.

With the serial killer on the loose, the Crescent City has become a place of nightmares. Inflicting terror on New Orleans has been his first order of business, and now, due to a recent faux pas, he’s on the run from district nineteen police.

In the midst of this is trans dancer Naomi Beneviere. Naomi is concerned about her safety after three other dancers wound up dead at the hands of the serial killer. To make matters worse, she dreams of their murders and possible details about the suspect.

Crime Scene Investigator Waylon Mooney is the top CSI on the case which has been plaguing the city. Waylon is meticulous and a hopeless romantic, but his social skills are a little off. After a series of dates with Naomi and many sleepless nights, Waylon is ready to take the next step in their relationship, but the killer on the loose may hamper their progress.

Will Waylon be able to assist in finding the killer? And will Naomi Beneviere finally have the chance at a true relationship with Waylon?

See No Evil concludes the N’awlins Exotica series. All books must be read in order.

Greetings folks

See No Evil, book 6 of the N’awlins Exotica series is done.

It is now on the editor’s desk

I blogged about the experience of writing a character who isn’t you.

Check out my post! 


Greetings folks.

I post so rarely on this blog, but I did want to share great news.

Smooth Like Latte and Time to Make the Donuts have both been picked by Thirteen Below press.

I re-did both books so they’ll be totally different than the first

I’m very excited and will keep you posted about the release dates for next year.

Also, wicked gal is hard at work. She just finished Living in Sin, N’awlins Exotica 3.1 and is moving right along into book 4, Hell Hath No Fury with Michael. She’s also working on Wounded Paths, the third book in the Wounded series with Remmy Duchene as well as edits on Wounded Pride.

Not to mention edits on Under the Gun 2.

Lordy is she busy!

Michael will be working on Hell Hath with her and then switching gears to his own series, PROTEKT Book 2 Closely Guarded.

Is there room for me to write?


Yes, I’ll be starting rewrites on Living in the Now.

That’s a lot to go, right?

Shar is running ragged



It’s not really news for me just yet

More for BL who’s busy doing the Nano thing.

Read her post here

In my news, I’m waiting on decisions to come back about my redos I’ve submitted to a pub. They have asked if I would expand Donuts a little, so I will and hope they’ll want to publish my story.

I will be writing again soon with Michael on See No Evil, the final book in the N’awlins series as well as the complete story for Guardian Angel.

We hope to get that done before June for PRIDE.

That will be a self publish and we can give Samuel and Daniel their full story.

There are other things on the docket for me. The story I did with Remmy Duchene will be reworked a little and passed on to BL so she can continue the series.

Again, what did Shar say about writing series?


I have a story called Love in the Slow Lane I’d like to do next year. When BL writes herself out, maybe I’ll get a chance.


Michael has things to do as well. The 2nd Book in the PROTEKT series which he’ll be doing in December along with the Twins prequel about their vampire father, Gren DuMont.

BL is always busy. In addition to the two books she’s doing, she’s doing book 3 with Remmy Duchene. It promises to be a humdinger and they’re still waiting for news on book 2, Wounded Pride.

She is also doing her first Lesbian book as well as Hirah Blaze’s stories for The Wretched which will be written in its entirety then released as a trilogy.

Yep, Shar is determined not to allow a series to go too long anymore.

Too many muses and too much to do.

We run her ragged, I know, but we do it because we love inspiring her!

In the meantime, check out the latest releases for Michael and BL!

writing (1)


I know this blog has been quite empty for the past few weeks,

but if you have checked in on me ever so often, I’m writing again!

*jumps for joy*

Yes, I always let Michael and BL have the spotlight and I wait my turn and now, Shar and I are working on revising Time to Make the Donuts and a new story with one of my fave authors!


I’m so excited!

To emphasize revisions, here is Shar’s post about that subject!


NoDeny1  Good morning,

I haven’t done the Wind down in quite a while and since Miss BL is super busy cranking out new stories, I thought I’d give it to her. Take it away BL!


Thanks kiddo!

Soo, what went into writing No Denying Sin?

Well, first off, I must say I’m happy that me and Mikey share a brain because I had to dig deep into the characters to write them. I mean, they weren’t my creations, but I’m thinking when he came up with Kenina and Orrin especially, he thought about me.



And Mikey does write in here too, even though his name isn’t on the cover. He writes the parts for Eli, our redheaded friend who can’t keep his hands off of anybody. *smirks*

And I write the saucy and never boring Kenina as well as Vance and Orrin.

Orrin has quickly become one of my fave characters. He’s no nonsense, quite lewd at times, and he’s a helluva cop.

He’s also complicated, thinks way too much at times, and hell, he can be sort of a thorn in your side.

Then, the opposite is Vance Morain who is just a load of fun. He’s from Dallas, he’s country, and he can also be lewd. *snort*

But this man knows how to love and when he’s focused, he is just that. He doesn’t take turn down’s easily, and he’s tough as shit.

So, seemingly I had two alpha males trying to make a relationship out of basically nothing but blue balls and a partnership that hasn’t been in existence that damn long. How do I make these freaking boneheads fall in love?

One, was to get Orrin over his hangups. I’m telling you, that wasn’t easy. And then Vance with his, I wasn’t raised a gay… cut that shit. *growls* There’s more to that but you’ll have to read to find out. In the meantime, I did have some music to push me along.

Mostly, rock because Orrin Daugherty is hard nosed. Until I got to the last part which is a story for another day. *snorts*

This song in particular I focused on


Why this song? Well, I considered the budding relationship between Vance and Orrin to border on obsession. And the other characters going nuts adds to the sexual tension in the book. I know that sounds vague but we don’t wanna give everything away do we?

Anyway, this song says desperation, obsession, angst, a lot of emotion which is why I used it. NIN is one of my fave bands to use for inspiration too!

\m/ \m/

Thanks for listening and look for the book in late December! 

Here’s an unedited snippet of No Denying Sin!

After Chief listened to all their ideas about the case, Frankie grabbed Morain to go take a walk with their reheated coffees in hand. Neither of them were heading out onto the field anyway. Since all of them were on a day shift, most of the work would be done by computer.

“So, Morain? What’s up my man? You…”

Vance sighed and dropped his head, adjusting the black Stetson atop his messy curls. He hoped Frankie wouldn’t cause a scene to bring on any undue attention. “I think you were right, Choteau.”


“My…um, desires. I can’t seem to get that man outta my head.”

“Well good. Means you can stay the hell away from mine,” Frankie playfully nudged Vance.

“Whatever, Frankie. There was nothing going on and you know it. Kajika flirted and flaunted his pretty self in front of me and wham! It woke up some shit in me I ain’t never experienced. So thank him for me.”

“All right, well…” Frankie shifted his weight from one foot to the other and took a sip from his mug. “Have you ever thought about being with a guy?”

“Not sexually. I remember back in high school I might’ve had a small crush on a couple of my teammates, but I was too afraid to say shit. My daddy don’t like faggots, Frankie so I let it go.”

“Understood my man. Mine didn’t like em either but my momma accepted me for what I was regardless. Part of this is accepting it yourself first before pushing it on other people, ya know? Now, the real question is, what do you intend to do about it?”

“You tell me.” Vance looked away again a moment before meeting Frankie’s brown gaze again. “Orrin don’t want no in office relationships.”

“He says that now, but I think if you came at him hard enough, he’d bend. Just don’t make it so damn obvious in front of everyone, especially Miss Kenina, right? Try not to look at him with puppy dog eyes or stare at his tight, plump… ahem, nice ass. Just make your feelings known in a subtle way when you’re out alone together and I bet you, he’ll eventually come around.”

“You think? And Frankie, I gotta ask you, since when you been checking out Orrin when you got that pretty man at home?”

“Well shit, Vance, I’m taken, but I ain’t dead. Orrin’s a good looking man. The new haircut fits him well and you can tell the man’s been working hard on his body. Fuck the kid is cut!”

“Um, yeah…” Vance eyed Frankie, confused.

“He is, Morain, but no worries, that’s all you, right? Hell, I’ll help you loosen the man up a little.”

Just so we can have a little something down the line.

“I’ll talk you up, explain to him how being down here ain’t like it was in Boston. Whatever, you want me to do.”

“Thanks for that, Frankie. I still dunno if this is the real thing yet, but heck, it’s not like I got a million females banging on my door.”

“And if you did?”

“I probably still wouldn’t do a God dang thing with them. I mean, I did have that feisty, big tittied redheaded wanting to reel me in. And, hell I even turned her down.”

“Cause you thought about Orrin?”

“More than just Orrin. Definitely Kajika, and hell, you ain’t so bad yourself, partner.”

“Ah, well thanks, my man, but Kajika’s gotten a bit more jealous these days, not sure why.” Frankie quickly cleared his throat again and glanced away while finishing the contents in his cup. “Anyway, I’m hoping this talk helped a little. Anytime you need to chat about something, call me. And I think my man will get a kick out of what you said about making you discover yourself. He said you needed a good man in your bed and I guess my baby was right.”

“Yeah he was, Frankie. I don’t think I’ll be able to tell my folks, man. I know they’ll be disappointed.”

“Well, their loss, my friend. Just remember what I told you, okay?  From day one I’ve always said if you find the right person, gender don’t matter. I’ve never liked being a label Vance. We aren’t born with em so why be worried? But since mother fuckers want to call everyone something, we go with it. We’re all human, Vance, meant to fuck and fall in love. That’s it.”

“I get it, really I do, but I don’t want to be with anyone else on the long term. The more time I spend with Orrin, everything just points back to him, ya know?”

“Sounds like someone’s falling hard then,” Frankie laughed and casually rubbed his shoulder. Though he wasn’t all that keen on the idea, he’d let go of his jealousy to see Vance and Orrin make some sort of headway.

After all, they were his friends and as Kajika stated, they would make a very, cute and volatile pairing.
