Thanks for letting me share… Humane Society Blessings: The Hellos and Goodbyes of Pet Adoption & Fostering Life is…

Yahoooo! I am big time happy dancing here in Florida! Just found out that my May, Silhouette Desire – PROPOSITIONED INTO A FOREIGN AFFAIR – is #1 on the Borders Bestseller list!

Good morning! and what a great morning it’s already been for me. I started out my day listening to the coolest music. There’s just nothing like a mellow love song! I heard this awesome new tune by The Plain White Ts called “1,2,3,4” and wow, is it ever awesome!! Very Beatles-esque, imho. (Many thanks to…

What would you give up…..

What would you give up in order to buy a book? I heard a stray comment at a conference recetly that really got me thinking. One latte costs the same as a Harlequin book. Two lattes equal a longer book. When I thought about it that way, it was suddenly like, “Wow!” Even with tightening…

I can hardly believe it’s almost time for TWO of my books to land in stores on the same day! HOTSHOT (Berkley Sensation) and PROPOSITIONED INTO A FOREIGN AFFAIR (Silhouette Desire) are both hitting stores on Tuesday, May 2. No matter how many books I have out, I always get a flutter of nerves and…

Senior Citizens Cane Kung-Fu!

posted on April 28, 2009 by Catherine Mann

Since I write romantic suspense, I spend a lot of time researching weaponry. Add in the military angle in most of my books and I figured I had looked into just about everything. At least I thought so until my critique partner, Joanne Rock, told me about self-defense classes for senior citizens using their canes…

6,800 Text Messages

How many text messages do you think an average teenage girl can send in a month? We went to unlimited texting about a month ago and holy cow, were we ever surprised when we at the answer. Our youngest daughter sent 6, 800 text messages. We would have her cut back except she makes straight…
