Site update!

Just a quick, way-overdue update to the site (which I had very nearly forgotten about) now that I’m regularly putting books out! My books page is updated with everything I currently have out, and I did some tweaks to the site style and mailing list signup as well.

I have no specific plans to have anything new out soon; after putting out three books in 2021, I’ll be focusing on my other pen names for a while. But I really appreciate the great response, especially to Wolf County! I’m thinking about turning that one into an Alaska werewolves series. I’ll see how things go in 2022!

My Books, Paranormal


I’m so excited to finally be able to announce this! My debut story (as Mar) is out!

“Moose Madness” is a novella-length werewolf/moose shifter romcom, appearing along with seven other stories in the anthology HER WILD SOULMATE, out this month.


Find it on Amazon here!

Shy, clumsy, closeted moose shifter Maggie can’t believe out-and-proud, motorcycle-riding werewolf Fiona is her fated mate, but even if they can overcome their differences, the town’s chaotic moose festival and Fiona’s overprotective pack just might break them up for good!

All proceeds from HER WILD SOULMATE benefit OutRight Action International, which works to protect the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people across the world.


FF Friday

Second Chance by HL Logan

This book is charming, sweet, well written, and fundamentally not for me, but it might be someone else’s delightful comfort read.

Basically this book had everything I would want in a cute small-town romance except for the one missing element that I’ll get to in a minute. Second Chance is about two single moms who went to high school together, a shy nerd and a cheerleader queen bee, who meet when their kids become friends and then kindle a romance. The characters are really charming, the kids are cute and believable as kids, and the writing is both technically excellent and funny. The narrative voice is great and in fact is what kept me reading as far into the book as I did.

(I need to caveat that the following is not an objective quality issue with the book but rather, a personal taste issue.)

FF Friday: By Any Other Name

By Any Other Name by Natasha West

This is a lesbian Romeo & Juliet riff, it’s funny and adorkable, and I loved it. 😀

It has some grammar issues, especially in the early chapters, but I don’t really mind them – it’s the same as the way you can enjoy a fanfic that’s full of sincere feelings but maybe not quite as polished as it could be. That is EXACTLY what this book feels like. It’s funny, sincere, and full of vivid characters, and it feels very much as if it’s written from the heart, poured out onto the page in the way of a fanfic that the author was really enjoying writing. It’s light, breezy, and above all, fun. I loved spending time with these characters and would happily read other books involving other family members.

The protagonists, Casey and Lane, are two girls from feuding families in a small British town who meet without knowing the other’s identity and then discover that their families are longtime enemies. The romance is sweet and convincing, with some hilarious yet plausible mishaps (in one of my favorite bits, while trying to wake Casey by throwing pebbles at her window, Lane first wakes up Casey’s pesky younger sister and then, when Casey opens her window at exactly the wrong moment, pastes her in the face with a rock instead). Also, there are matchmaking sheep.

And the family feud is fantastic – it’s hilarious and frustrating in equal measure, and the entire cast of both families are convincing as a bunch of hardheaded weirdos who have hated each other for as long as anyone can remember without any of them actually being bad or unlikable people.

I had a certain suspension-of-disbelief issue with the two protagonists not recognizing each other on sight, given how intimately their families appear to be tangled together, but I’m willing to forgive that because the rest of the book is just so much fun. I’ll definitely be looking up other books by this author, because well-done lesbian romcom is not exactly a genre flowing over with options, and this was really delightful.


FF Friday: Just Like a Dream

Just Like a Dream by Nina Justice

I grabbed some cheap F/F from LessThanThree Press recently and this was one of them, a modern-day lesbian version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The protagonist inadvertently summons a fairy fixer to fix her love life, but falls in love with the fixer instead, while magical Cupid-related shenanigans engulf her family and friends.

Unfortunately it ended up being not really my thing; it’s too farcical and lightweight to really engage me with either the characters or the worldbuilding. If you’re looking for a fast read that’s light and fun and PG-rated, this might work better for you than it did for me, though!
