3 New Anthology Releases!

Hi everyone, sorry I haven’t been on here much recently. I spent much of October traveling with my daughter to Israel (to see my mother) and London (to hang out with friends). It was fun and exhausting and now I’m back and have some news.

While I was away this happened:

13 Candles is a collection of 13 never-before-published Halloween-themed short stories by 13 YA authors. My story, The Costume, is loosely set in my P.A.W.S. universe and features Miri’s childhood friend, Jenny. 50% of all proceeds from the sales of this anthology with be donated to Global Giving, an international organization that provides funds directly to local charities in communities that need it most.

But wait there’s more yesterday saw the release of not one, but two more anthologies that include stories by me.

The first is book 3 of the Sins of Time series, that included Sins of the Past and Sins of the Future.  I am both the editor and a contributor to each of these volumes. Our new volume Sins of the Gods features horror stories of mythology. My own tale, Shades of Black, is a cautionary tale about why it’s not a great idea to get on the wrong side of Gaea.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

breast-cancer-awareness-month

It’s that time of year again. So ladies go get your boobs checked. It’s important, really important. I should know. Six years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I’m one of the lucky ones. I went through treatment – chemo, surgery and radiation – and today I’m cancer free.

It was that bout with cancer that got me writing. I’d always wanted to write a book, but felt I had all the time in the world. Cancer made me realize that our time on this earth is limited and that if you really want to do something you shouldn’t delay.

You can pick up my short memoir, The Big C, about my struggle with cancer from all outlets for just 1.99. All the money raised from this title go to Knitted Knockers, a wonderful organization that provides soft breast forms for women who have had mastectomies.

Cecilia’s Tale

Hi everyone. A lot seems to be happening at once of late. I have another new release. Cecilia’s Tale started it’s life as a little story on a blog, Cici’s Place, I ran many years ago. The story was inspired by my real-life kitty, Cecilia T. Cat (or Cici for short) who found me and adopted me while I was living in Israel.

Cecilia’s Tale is now available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle. It includes illustrations from a wonderful local artist and friend, Victoria Szulc.

So here goes – drum roll please – LONDINIUM (The P.A.W.S. Saga 4), on presale now.

londinium

“The pea soup has spoken,” said Caradog. “You are destined for Londinium.”
“Londinium?” asked Miri.
“It was the ancient city from which London sprang. The P.A.W.S. Institute of Londinium is the oldest in the world. It started before the city of today existed and straddles the old and the new. Unfortunately, today it is run by a fool.”

Join Miri as she continues her journey through Umbrae and Londinium with the help of werecats, wild warlocks, an old dog, a duck, and a whole lot of pea soup.

The P.A.W.S. Saga continues with Londinium.

But, as her protected life unravels, she discovers the violent supernatural world that lurks in her quiet hometown and the ancient feuds that threaten to destroy both her friends and her family.

To save those she loves, Shae must succumb to her own fury and take on the Ravensgaard, the renegade warriors of the Order, but as the battle approaches her deepest fears are coming true, she’s becoming just like them. Shae’s not sure she can afford the price she’ll have to pay—her own humanity.
