Book Excerpt: Body Armor | Shimmer

Today's prompt is "shimmer". As a romantic suspense author, a lot of things can shimmer. Heat can cause shimmering waves to rise off a road. Light can shimmer off all manner of things---weapons, water, women. Because Medici Protectorate Book 3, Body Armor, is releasing soon, I've chosen to print a scene from the novel that uses the … Continue reading Book Excerpt: Body Armor | Shimmer

Today I’m talking about elements. Not the metals and noble gases that gave us all headaches in … Continue reading It’s Element-ary, Watson!
