A Work in Progress


Hope you are all doing well. I’ve been working on my new paranormal romance manuscript this week. I just finished writing chapter nine. My goal is to get it published by December. I can’t wait to share it with you.

I’ve never written a paranormal romance before. So, it’s a great challenge. I’m definitely having fun with the research.

For sure, it will be filled with romance, steamy scenes and adventure like all the other books I wrote.

Without spilling the beans too much, the story is about a Viking. Who doesn’t love those guys? Wink wink. Once it’s finished and off to the publisher, I will share with you a glimpse of the story.

For now, you can get your hands on my other great novels. Check out My Books section. And there’s a giveaway going on too!

If you have any questions for me, please post them below! I will more than happy to answer you!



Authentic Bosnian Baklava recipe:

wiserlady's Blog (Youtube: Delish Asian Diet)

This is a recipe for authentic Bosnian walnut baklava. My husband is Bosnian and his favorite dessert is baklava. I wanted to be able to make baklava for him at home. However, I started with phyllo dough bought from the store. I was not satisfied with the flaky consistency. When I discussed with other Bosnian ladies, I realized that in the old days, the women would make baklava at home with homemade phyllo dough or jufka! It is very difficult to achieve the paper thinness but it is possible with enough practice. I must admit that I experimented on several occasions until I was able to perfect the entire process. The process below now works for me perfectly every time and the result is a crispy yet juicy baklava fresh from home! I learnt the recipe for jufka from ‘Baking with Sibella’ @ http://bakingwithsibella.com/.

A Christmas Memory

It was Christmas 1980-something and one of my fondest childhood memories is the one where  I was making a snowman with my uncle Alan. Outside, we had lots of snow and it was the perfect amount for the biggest snowman ever.

I don’t recall much of that cold snowy evening. All I do remember was the laughter and the joy of the moment. I think that is the most important part. My uncle had created a precious memory for me.

Life is too short to focus on the negative stuff. As adults, we sometimes forget about having old fashion fun. We forget about laughing and living in the moment. We must reach deep within ourselves and bring out that child who is in each and all of us. She or he is there. Just let them out.

This holiday season, I hope you find joy and have lots of fun. Watch that crazy Christmas movie, listen to the fun songs, sing, laugh, make some awesome memories that will stay with you forever.

Happy Christmas!

New Home for My Books!

Hello everyone!

Today, I would like to share with you some awesome news. Beachwalk Press has agreed to republish three of my “babies” : Hidden Desire, Klondike Winter and On His Honor.

The publication dates are to be determined, and I will let you know.

As for my other books previously published, my new publisher will put them aside for now. The time periods do not fit into their categories. But that’s fine with me. I can always look for another publisher for these ones. One criteria I look for in a publisher is they must have the print option. I like feeling books in my hands. I’m old-fashioned.

Finding a publisher isn’t an easy task. As a writer, you want to find the best publication company. For me, since I decided to be an independent author, I like smaller publishers. Of course, I have learned my lesson with the first two publishers with whom I signed. When I found SCP, I had not only became a better writer, but I have also found a support group composed of awesome people and writers.

I hope my partnership with Beachwalk Press will be as fulfilling as the one I had with SCP.

For now, I sign the paperwork and wait.
