Ghosts, the supernatural and…pumpkin seeds?

My new release is out!

As many of you know I have another blog where I talk about writing and occasionally I crosspost. My second novel in the Shadow Walkers series is now available. Start off with a ghostly pirate who can take physical form, throw in supernatural creatures, persnickety gods and of course a deadly curse and you get Desired by Shadow.

novel2Betrayed... A modern-day ghost story with a twist.

Kidnapped on her way home from work, Maggie is thrown into a terrifying world of shadow. Narrowly escaping death, she flees her kidnappers only to come face to face with the enemy.

Coming across a dying stranger, Maggie unleashes a terrible curse when she saves Robert. Now with only a week to break the curse, time is running out as they are locked in a deadly fight with forces that will stop at nothing to destroy them. Intensely romantic and thrilling, Desired by Shadow portrays the struggle between redemption, retribution and the desire to find a love that transcends time.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Rinse the seeds in cold water, removing the gooky strings and seeds.
Spread the seeds in a single layer on an oiled baking sheet, stirring so they are coated (or use non-stick cooking spray)
Sprinkle with salt or other seasoning (try cinnamon or italian seasoning or garlic), bake at 325F until toasted – approx. 25 min., check them midway through and stir
cool and store in an airtight container – if you don’t eat them all right out of the oven!

Cheers and happy blending!


Hey apple…

ImageThe farmer’s market has apples. This morning I picked up Honeycrisp. Yum! Crunchy and mouth-watering with a bit of sweetness. I asked about Gold Rush. They were the variety I discovered last year and my new favorite. The vendor told me it was still a bit early (here in North Carolina) but they’d be ready in a few weeks.

What’s your favorite apple?

Welcome Fall Smoothie
