My holiday started with a sparkly bang as I signed alongside Nora Roberts at Turn the Page Bookstore this past Saturday. For all of you who attended, thank you and it was so nice to meet you! To continue the sparkle, let’s not forget all of the generous authors who shared their holiday customs and recipes […]
The Cup is Half Full!
The Washington Romance Writers Reader and Blogger Luncheon this past Saturday marked the half-way point for my fall appearances. Let me tell you a secret: I didn’t realize how many events I’d planned until I sat down to do my calendar after RWA, my big romance author’s conference, back in July. I am an extrovert […]
The Joy of Romance for Read a Romance Month
Today’s post is for Read a Romance Month, founded by Bobbi Dumas who is a tireless advocate of romance fiction. With articles for Kirkus Reviews and NPR, Bobbi also has interviews of some of today’s most beloved romance authors.

Grabbing the Blooms Where I can
Summer has settled into the Northeastern USA and I’m making the most of it with walks and long mornings writing on my patio. My organic veggie garden is something of a hot mess as I always over plant. The green beans and cucumbers are climbing up the tomato cages, and alas, some of the tomatoes. […]
Beginnings and Endings
It’s a busy month Chez Krotow as one college kid has finished Freshman year and the other is about to graduate. I’m much too young to have a college graduate child but I digress… I’m happily working away on the Silver Valley PD Series. You’ll be able to read the first book in November with […]
Silver Valley PD–A New Series in 2015
I’m delighted to announce my new series for Harlequin Romantic Suspense will launch later this year. The Silver Valley PD Series is sometimes loosely, sometimes closely, based on where our family has settled after years of Navy moves. I’ve fallen in love with my new hometown and now the characters of its fictional sister, Silver Valley. The Whidbey […]
Let's Send Books to the Military for the Holidays!
I’m so excited to share my November celebration. A double release deserves double the effort, and I’m proud to announce that my publisher Harlequin has agreed to provide free copies of my two November releases to the military, with a focus on Active Duty and families separated from home for the holidays. Over two dozen of […]

Memorial Day Salute
A solemn, loving salute today to my fellow veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice. I will never forget. Today I’m thinking of everyone we’ve lost in every way, but in particular of a U.S. Naval Academy classmate, a fellow alumni’s parents, and a squadron mate of my husband’s, all lost on 9-11. My daughter and […]
Flashback Friday: A Veteran's Gratitude Check
Monday will be only the second Veteran’s Day in thirty-one years that I haven’t either been in uniform or married to a man in uniform. And it’s only over the past two years since dh (dear hubby!) retired from the Navy that I’ve been able to take a step back and appreciate what a gift […]
