Frequently Asked Questions
Some questions get asked a lot. Here are answers to the most frequently asked questions. They'll be updated as things change, plans are made and the future unfolds...

Are you going to write any more...
Yes! In fact, I'm expanding it a bit from my original plan because some very interesting characters have shown up and demanded I tell their stories. ;-)
Unlike most of my series, the Resonance Mates set was always planned as a 5-book story arc. The first four were published by my first publisher and the fifth was held in limbo for a while when that publishing house went out of business over a period of years. I had not planned to write more after I finished that set, but I have been thinking (for a long time) about doing an additional trilogy. I just haven't had time to write it with everything else that's been going on both personally and professionally. Hopefully, next year.
...Gift of the Ancients?
Yes! I'm working on both a sixth book and a bundle of the first three. I may also be getting new covers for the series next year. Not sure, but it's something I'm thinking about.
Yes, eventually. It's on the "to do" list.
Maybe. Not sure. And not planned anytime soon. Sorry.
Yes! I'm working steadily on the ongoing paranormal story lines. Grizzly Cove will swing us back around to deal with the leviathan in the tie-in Trident Trilogy. Once we deal with the beastie, and Elspeth has had time to recover and regroup, the war will start in earnest. At that point, I will probably return to the Brotherhood of Blood story line to get poor Leonora out of that tree (in case you were wondering). ;-)
I'm adding this section to answer questions that come up repeatedly...
Katherine, in my fb fan group, asked: "I just read Future Past and found out there was a book before that so I am reading it next. I see it ties in with Tales of The Were. Now my question is: do Guardians of the Dark also tie in?"
Guardians of the Dark, Tales of the Were, Brotherhood of Blood, etc, were all begun when I was writing for small press and traditional publishers. Each started with a different publisher. The publishers didn't allow crossover. If they contracted a book or a series, it had to be set in a world that was ONLY written for that publisher.
Some of the series were always in the same world - in my mind - but I had to keep them separate for the sake of the publisher contracts. I was able to merge BoB and ToW early on because the publisher of BoB went out of business years ago and I got the rights back and brought those books over to Samhain Publishing (this was in the days before indie publishing). That's why I was able to write Sweeter Than Wine, which joins the two series, and all that's come after.
Guardians was written for a traditional "NY" publisher and I only got the rights back... um... a year or two ago? In my mind, the wider world I set those books in was the same, but like with BoB and ToW, I couldn't say so. Now? Yeah, I would say that all the paranormals I've written are in essentially the same world. Some books make it clear - as Deuces Wild did for the Gemini Project series, which started with yet another publisher years ago. The appearance of the Kinkaid lions in Gift of the Ancients does that for that series. I haven't written more of the Guardians series and I'm not sure if I will. It's an idea in the back of my mind. I just don't know when or how it would happen, right now.
What is the reading order for your paranormals?
I tried to make a graphic to show how the paranormal books up to Matt are spaced out. There is a lot of overlap as references are made to the events of one sub-series in another. I *think* the graphic below about covers it.
