As promised, here is the video from my podcast interview on Nov. 2. My thanks to host Vicky Johnson. My grandson gave the closing comments!
(This info was originally posted in June, 2015, but since I am continuing to receive questions, I have decided to repeat it. Thanks for the continued interest and the questions, ya’ll. I welcome both.)
After the release of my new non-fiction book, I’ve been hearing from long-time readers: “Hey! What up with the sequel to ALL FOR LOVE?”
This is the status: I’m planning two sequels to ALL FOR LOVE. One is Tiffani and Alex’s story, but the other is something completely unique! I’m about half way through the unexpected one. Sorry, I can’t tell you the title of the book (yet), because that would totally give away the unique nature of the book, and I want to keep that a secret until the book’s release next year.
2016 will be the 20th anniversary of ALL FOR LOVE, and the unexpected one will be released on or near the anniversary date. One hint—it’s an idea that’s been bubbling in my head since 1996 and I think it is the perfect companion piece to ALL FOR LOVE. Tiffani and Alex’s story will follow in 2017.
I had to stop work on the romance novels to complete my new non-fiction book, MY ALZHEIMER’S DIARY. With so many in my family, including my mother, dying from Alzheimer’s, I felt compelled to get this book out before the others. It was released June 21, 2015, and made three Amazon Top 100 lists in the weeks after its release. Now that’s it is out, I’m going back to the romance novels full time.
Thanks for hanging in there with me, ya’ll. I know it’s been a long wait, but I promise you the sequels will be worth it!”

The heart of the Precious Jewels Security Agency, Pearl Nicolas’s life has become one undercover assignment after the next. Happy, yet jealous, that her sisters are finding their soulmates, Pearl reluctantly accepts there is no soulmate out there for her… Or is there?
Tariq Suárez Anzar’s life changed when he became a single father of a teen. When a possible drug ring is suspected on his daughter’s prep school campus, the Precious Jewels are called in to find out exactly what is going on. But Tariq discovers so much more—Pearl. From the first moment they met, everything within him screamed, “She is your soulmate!”
Timing would be perfect for Tariq to go after his soulmate except one tiny thing—his daughter is Pearl’s only lead in the case. Patient as much as he is determined, he will not let this once in a lifetime chance slip by to have the family he wants.
The below is a BOOK SAMPLE of “Soulmates”:
“Amber had never been more right in her life! Pearl continued staring at the headshot of Tariq Suárez Aznar in the Newton Academy’s staff gallery on the school’s website via her iPad. Teachers were not supposed to look like this. Had Professor Suárez been her math instructor, she wouldn’t have learned a thing from dreaming about him all day.
Sincere hazel eyes to gaze into, strong facial features to admire, lips plump enough for kissing, short wavy hair to run her fingers over—if his body were half as nice, she’d never solve the case from drooling over the man.
Resisting the urge to conduct a background check on him, she turned off her tablet and put it away. He’d hired them and deserved his privacy. This was business. Plus a man like him had to be married. Then again, what would she do with a boring teacher anyway? Good looks be damned, she needed a man who could keep up with her. One whose lifestyle matched hers enough that they wanted to share their lives together. She wanted someone who didn’t exist—her soulmate.
Disheartened, she walked from the bench in the main office over to the bulletin board. Pep rally, fundraiser, Halloween party, volleyball game schedule, football game schedule, math club meetings, science club meeting… nothing out of the ordinary.
“Excuse me, Ms. Nicholas?”
That soft, sexy voice had to belong to the new star of her fantasies. Much calmer than she felt, she turned and smiled politely. “Yes. Oh, Mr. Suárez.” Following Spanish tradition, she said his middle name, which was his father’s family name.
Appreciation burned in his bright eyes as he took her in from head to toe. She knew when a man was attracted to her, and Mr. Suárez definitely was.”

One of my books, FOLLOW YOUR HEART, contains this quote:
“The twelve people [of the jury] came filing back into the courtroom. They were moving stiffly, mechanically, like Michael Jackson doing the robot. They turned as one. They sat as one.”
The video below shows MJ as I was envisioning him when I wrote that entry.
