Cross Bones is now available!!!

Who wants to read about sexy pirates? Me! I'm very excited to announce that my newest story, "On the Wings of Lir,", is now available at Dreamspinner Press as part of the Cross Bones anthology!!!!

On the Wings of Lir Cover
Cross Bones is out in both ebook and paperback form. You can find the ebook HERE and the paperback HERE.

I can't wait to get my copy and read my fellow authors' stories. I hope everyone enjoys the Cross Bones anthology. I had a great time writing "On the Wings of Lir" - the roguish Captain Kelly and the not-so-innocent Lieutenant Hugh Edwards were a delight. I'm really looking forward to revising the steampunk world I created - hopefully later this year, should my schedule allow for it. A secondary character from Hugh and Kelly's story has been talking to me ;)

About "On the Wings of Lir":
In the time of Queen Victoria, the invention of airships has brought about a resurgence in piracy. Of all the buccaneers who sail the skies, pillaging merchant airships, the worst is Patrick Kelly, captain of the Wings of Lir. When fate lands Captain Kelly in Hugh Edwards's path, the young lieutenant can't believe his luck. He's determined to capture the pirate...but finds himself caught instead.

About Cross Bones:
Ahoy, me proud beauty, shiver me timbers! I ask ye to sail me jollyboat on the high seas, lubber, but will ye dare to accept? On offer be a pirate's life full of danger and risk, and not just to yer neck, but to yer very virgin heart! There's many a bodice to be ripped--or perhaps I should say many a codpiece to be snapped--and should ye be graced enough to cross bones with a corsair, don't be an addlepate! Heave ho, lad, handsomely, and show him how ye bury yer treasure!

Pirates didn't only sail the high seas in historical times. Modern-day renegades and futuristic rebels are just as ripe for adventure and plunder. No matter the time, place, or circumstances, bad boys steal affection as often as they salvage treasure, and in these stories of romance, a rogue's black heart always conceals a center of gold.
