Six weeks after the biggest case of her life, Sgt. MacKenzie ?Mack? McCallister receives information that changes her future. With the man she loves on the opposite side of the country, Mack isn?t sure she can do it on her own.

Special Agent Andrew Cooper is dealing with the hardest thing he has ever had to face, and in order to do it, he must shelve his feelings for Mack and pray that she will be there when he returns.

As time passes, Mack focuses her attention on the serial killer investigation and forces thoughts of Drew out of her mind. When emotions are running high, Drew returns, and everything in Mack?s world is turned upside down.

It will fall to Drew to figure out the missing pieces of the serial murder investigation, but will he be able to do it before he loses Mack forever?

I am so glad that everyone has enjoyed Second Shield so much. I know many of you were shocked with the cliff hanger, and I do apologize.? Every week I get at least one message from someone asking when Second Shield II will be out. And Finally – I can say I am working on it again. Dealing with a major concussion for 10 months has made writing very difficult for me, but finally the voices are coming back! Currently, I have about 20 chapters finished and I just edited those chapters and did some re-writes to them. From where I’m standing, I’m about half way through the book. If everything goes as plans (my fingers are crossed so tightly), then I should be done writing this in April 2016 and I will be able to release in sometime this summer!

To help you out a bit, I’ll share a tidbit of what’s going on in book 2.

You all know where the cliff hanger was left, and Mack is learning to deal with the situation. She wanted to tell Drew but he is having a really hard time with Annabelle and just when she gets the nerve up to tell him, he says he needs some time.? While Drew is dealing with Anna and his children, Mack is working with her unit as a serial killer comes to the area. Chris Carley, the FBI agent from the cabin is back, and his friendship with Mack might cause some problems. Jose is also back as a close friend to Mack and you’ll see some more old friends and meet some new ones. It’s when Drew finally returns that all hell will break loose on the case, and in their lives.? Mack and the gang are going to have to figure out the connection to the victims before she herself becomes one and Drew is going to have to come to terms with all the changes in his life.

The excitment of bringing the characters back to life!

New Projects on the Horizons

For those of you who know me, you know when I write – I write fast. I fall into my stories and I get lost. My characters take over my mind, and devour my soul. I miss that.

For the last four months, I have been recovering from a bad concussion. While I can now do the normal everyday kind of things like cook, clean and play mom taxi to my 12 year old daughter, there are still a whole bunch of things that I can not do. One of them is write for any length of time. In fact, I’m averaging about 600-800 words a day. Which is nothing compared to my 12-16K a day that I used to write – or the 56K I wrote in May in just 4 days. But…. the good news is I am healing, slowly and my brain is finally beginning to kick back in on the creative side. Now if only my left eye would cooperate!

Those 600-800 words a day I write? – I use to test myself on how easily it would be to write a police report. I miss my job and I can’t wait to get back to work. Some people probably think I’m nuts for that. They would probably kill to be able to stay at home – but not me. Me, I want to get back to work. I want to get back to my hectic schedule and my 16 hour days. I honestly just want to get back to being me… It’s gonna take me a little bit longer to do – but I’m going to get there.

So, what does all this mean to my future writing? Lots…

First off, Second Shield II, as soon as I am strong enough to dig back into that story – I will. I hate that I do not have this one out for you all yet, and I swear when my strength and cunning return, I’m jumping back into this story with a vengeance to get it out to you.

Second – There is a new exciting novella that has been started and that is what I have slowly been working on to gauge my ability to push myself with writing.? I can’t tell you much about this – but soon I will.

Third – I have two plot lines that I have been jotting notes down on recently. One is about a woman with a concussion (gee… where did I get that idea?) and how in-depth this injury is compared to what people actually think. TBI’s (Traumatic Brain Injuries) are not jokes – and I intend to explain just how serious these injures are in a fictional story based on my own experience, kind of like Whether I’ll Live or Die.

The other plot line I have just starting spinning around in my mind… well… It’s about first loves. The ones we let go of – or lose and then years later we wonder about them… I already know the title of this one – It’s called Tempt Me Too and it’s named after the boat that Max owns. You can read a little about my thoughts on this book on it’s book page… Here

All in all…. I’m slowly getting better – not fast enough for my taste – but I’m getting there. Every day just a tiny bit better. I can’t wait to get back into writing again and let some of these characters come back to life. Until then – thank you for your patience!
