One day, back in 2012, while working at my "real job", a bunch of voices decided to take up residence in my head. After a quick glance around, I confirmed I was the only one hearing them. Slightly disconcerting, to say the least.
I opened a blank document and started typing. I was up until 2:00 a.m., hammering away at my laptop, not having a clue what it all meant or what the heck I was doing.
My original intention was simply to get the voices out of my head and "on paper" then go on about my life. Yeah, not so much. The whole thing seems to have backfired. It's like I've opened some sort of portal enabling more voices to crowd in!
Mixed in this cluster of voices, were those of the O'Halleran family. Five alpha brothers and their feisty baby sister. From that came the first three books of the O'Halleran Security Int'l. series; "Deadly Secret", "Deadly Disciple" and "Deadly Deception" coming out in August 2019, and books 4 through 6 sometime in 2020. There will be additional books in the series.
I am also toying with the idea of writing a novella telling the love story between the senior O'Hallerans; Michaleen and Molly. A sort of retrospective on how two people who built an amazing life and family together, met and fell in love. It will likely take place in Whidbey Cove, my fictional small town near Deception Pass in Washington State.
I'm also working on a contemporary romance about a young woman who is the victim of horrible abuse at the hands of her boyfriend. Instead of letting it destroy her, she gains strength from her survival and goes on to help other victims of abuse.
I'm so excited for what's to come and I hope you'll continue along with me on my journey toward becoming a published author!
