Exciting Things are Happening!!

So, I’m sure I’m not the only one watching Ted Lasso these days (best show ever!), and one of my favorite parts is that it’s chock full of little life lessons. Like the most recent episode had a little speech by Ted that basically said (and I’m liberally paraphrasing): “Don’t listen to anyone else. Listen to your gut, and on the way to your gut, stop and listen to your heart.”

I love this! We all gotta do this, my friend. 

So, on that note, I have some news for you.

I am officially admitting to the world I am adding “mystery writer” to my resume. Yep, I’m going all-in on a brilliant, funny, heartwarming cozy-ish mystery series that will be launching in early 2022 (no, it’s not up for preorder, so no need to go look for it). The first book, Double Twist, introduces you to Mia Murphy, the most endearing, loyal and funny former con-artist and pickpocket and accidental FBI spy you’ll ever meet.  It’s fun, it’s sassy, it’s also emotional and heartwarming. It has a healthy dose of murder and assassins, and some of the best female bonding around. 

Here’s the thing. I needed to write something fun and positive, that will bring laughter and joy to people. My romances are all HEA, but I drag my characters through some really tough stuff before they reach the end. 

I NEED to be sunshine in this world right now. I feel like the world needs the sparkle that is unique to me, so I’m listening to my gut and my heart, and I’m ripping all the limitations away, and putting Mia Murphy out there for everyone who needs what she can give them. 

At the moment, I’m going to keep writing my romances, but I’m making space for the mysteries. Mia #2 is almost finished, and Mia #3 will be underway shortly after that. She’s calling me, and it makes my heart so happy to know she and I are going to be putting some really awesome vibes into the world. 

I hope you give Mia a try when Double Twist comes out, but if she’s not a fit for you, that’s totally cool, too. I started brainstorming the next Hart Ranch book yesterday, so that will hopefully be coming your way in early 2022 as well.
