It’s getting closer! Release date is 14 February 2018! Note that this year that day is both St. Valentine’s day and Ash Wednesday! (I’m Byzantine, and we don’t have “Ash Wednesday” – it’s a Latin thing.)

Check out my “Media Room” for a Press Release, which is available as a .pdf you can download.

Also available now in the “Media Room” is a .pdf of book club questions for The Visconti Devils which you can download and print.

Book reviewer/bloggers, please contact me for an advance reading copy. Galleys should be available soon.


The Visconti Devils is being re-released 14 February 2018 (which is both St. Valentine’s Day AND Ash Wednesday this year!) as a trade paperback from Aventine Press AND as an e-book from Amazon Kindle!

It will have the same fantastic cover art by Christine Griffin (see above) but will include a bonus at the end – a sneak preview of my new novel for 2018, Heaven’s Irregulars, which will be out around late March/early April.

Heaven’s Irregulars takes place 15 years after Devils, and is about Michael and Maggie’s son Gabriel. It will be my first fantasy/non-romance. Check back here for updates, including excerpts and first look at cover art!

I will be running giveaways on Goodreads for both books, and the lucky winners will also receive a pair of my handcrafted earrings from my “Immortal Romance” collection from my Etsy shop.

Check back here often – I will be posting updates on The Visconti Devils and a list of questions for book clubs!

Follow me on Twitter, too!

This is going to be an ass-kicking 2018!

Yet another demon

It seems I’ve been battling demons most of my life, so you’d think I’d developed a flair for it. Now, I have yet another demon to face – in January, I was diagnosed with Stage III uterine cancer. I spent Holy Week in the hospital, and it is not over yet.

It still seems sort of surreal. The moment you hear your doctor speak the words, “I’m afraid it’s cancer,” your whole world changes in the blink of an eye.

She said it’s curable, that hopefully it can all be removed – but who knows how much time we have? It has lent a certain urgency to the completion of my latest novel, which I had just started before receiving the diagnosis – a sequel to “The Visconti Devils.” It might be more accurate to call it a new adventure with some of the same characters. It takes place 15 years after the events of “Devils,” and the central character is Michael and Maggie’s son Gabriel.

Perhaps this novel will be my swan song, or perhaps I will be here many more years and write quite a few more. It’s in God’s hands, and you know what? I’m at peace with that.
