When I began writing for Intrigue, I started using photos of actors for my characters. This makes it easier to keep their appearance in my mind when I return for revisions or rewrites. I also send the images to the Art Department, for their use in creating the cover.
For my upcoming Intrigue, Defensive Action, I used actors Chris Pratt and Kiera Knightley.

My new series, Protectors at Heart kicks of in July 2019 with Defensive Action. This series starter features a CIA operative’ whose efforts to recover missing intel and stay one step ahead of foreign agents entangles adventure-adverse urbanite in a high-stakes overland race through the Adirondack mountains.
The complete series of four are all pieces of a larger puzzle but can easily be enjoyed separately. It’s not necessary to read all or read them in order to enjoy them.
Defensive Action (July 19) introduces secret intel on a terrorist organization
Adirondack Attack (August 19) is a live and death struggle to keep that intel out of the hands of US officials
Warning Shot (Nov 19) Homeland Security tries to stop the terrorists on the border
Dangerous Conditions (Dec 19) local law enforcement fight to shut down a sleeper cell who harbor dangerous intent
One of my new writing habits is to select actors to use as models for the hero and heroine’s physicality. This trick keeps my descriptions on track and prevents me from annoying mistakes, like changing the hero’s eye color in the middle of the story.
For the series first book, Defensive Action, I’ve used actors Chris Pratt and Keira Knightley as my models. Their descriptions were sent to the art department at Harlequin and the cover is created from this information as well as the setting details.

For the past two years, I have been growing out my hair for the day that it was long enough to cut away the part that I colored. I wanted to go back to a more natural style and see just what my hair was doing under that color. Today I found out. Nearly all the added color has been snipped away and I feel. much lighter.
The owner of the salon said the look made me look younger. But of course, he would have to say that. He can’t say, “You look like a spotted hyena wearing stripes.” That would be rude and bad for business.
I thanked him and told the stylist that wasn’t what I was going for. “Age appropriate, was what I was after.”
Hopefully I hit that mark. Now up update all my author photos. Ugh!!
