Romance writer. 

That’s me.  Especially right now. 

In addition to mysteries.  But as I mentioned in an earlier post here, my current mystery series is over. The fifth and last in the Barkery & Biscuits series, For A Good Paws, was a May release. Will I write more mysteries? I hope so… but not for a while.

Why?  I’ve got a bonanza of deadlines for romances! I’m under contract for four Harlequin Romantic Suspense books. 

The first two are part of their long-lived Colton continuity series, filled with lots of Colton relatives in real and fictional towns all over the place.  Mine are in two different mini-series in two fictional towns.  I’ve finished going over the line edits for the first, although I got the changed manuscript back to read one more time.  I’m also about to submit the manuscript for the second, so I’m making progress.  

The last two are in a mini-series of my own, a spin-off from my K-9 Ranch Rescue mini-series for HRS, the Shelter of Secrets mini-series. I’m just starting to work on the first of those.  The Coltons don’t necessarily have dogs. But these will!

So as much as I’d love to take on more mysteries, or even something different, they’ll have to wait till I feel I can deal with additional deadlines. Right now, I’m particularly enjoying romances.

By the way, I do a lot of crossword puzzles. One clue recently was “Harlequin product” or something like that.  The answer?  I’ll bet you can guess. 

Yes, it was “romance.”
