HOLIDAY WITH A TWIST is rereleased with a new cover!


My 2016 Christmas novella, HOLIDAY WITH A TWIST, was reissued today with a new cover! This was my novella from last year (the one with the pug!) so you might have read it. But if you missed it last year, now’s a great time to grab it! (It’s a new listing, so Amazon won’t give you the “you already own this ebook” warning.)

Most Awesome Halloween Hijinks of Doom

I started this blog on January 1st, 2005, when my younger son was four years old. He’ll be seventeen in two weeks. He’s practically an adult now (*cough*) and he’s used to being his mother’s social media fodder. Especially when it comes to pictures.

Like in 2010, when he found the Harry Potter glasses his brother won a costume contest with years before.

Or 2011, when the school spirit week theme day was the 1980s.


And in 2013, there was the cheeseball story.


And then came the high school’s Halloween costume contest of 2017…

Three high school girls dressed up as the three photos of my son, holding printed out copies. A girl with long, blonde hair wearing a blue tee and Harry Potter glasses. A girl with long brown hair wearing a coat with the collar flipped up like Miami Vice and aviator shades. And a girl with long brown hair wearing a Tom Brady jersey and hugging a bucket of cheeseballs


The prizes included Dunkin Donuts gift cards and, I might be a tad bit biased, but I was pretty outraged these three awesome young ladies didn’t win. Not only was the group costume concept original and hilarious, but the execution was perfection.


But y’all know I love my happy endings, so I awarded Dunkin Donuts gift card prizes of my own.

Starting off the week with a Christmas read!

Curled up in my polar bear PJs, reading a new Christmas romance from my bestie!

Love Me By Christmas

Ellie Washington lost her husband in a tragedy five years ago at Christmas. She wouldn’t have made it through her grief if not for her husband’s brother, Nick, who helped her pick up the pieces of her shattered life. And with every year, her feelings for Nick have grown. Now she realizes she might be in love with him, but that’s not fair, because Nick deserves a life that isn’t about his brother’s widow and son.

Sharing his life with Ellie and her son has been the balm that soothed Nick’s soul after losing his brother. Now that friendship has turned into something deeper. Nick doesn’t want to upset the status quo, but someone has to make the first move, and it’s time they figure out if their feelings are real. Nick believes in what they have. He also believes in Christmas miracles, and he thinks they’re both long overdue for one.

HOLD HER AGAIN release day!

Cover of Hold Her AgainHere in New England, the foliage is bright and the nights are chilly, which means it’s time for romantic holiday reads!

Most of my books take place in New England because it’s home, but some of you might know I graduated from high school in Missouri and have family there. I decided to revisit the state in this year’s Christmas novella, and I hope you enjoy Jace and Ava’s reunion as much as I loved writing it. 

A country-music star returns home to win back the woman he loves in this charming holiday novella from New York Times bestselling author Shannon Stacey.

Ava Wright isn’t happy to see her high school sweetheart rolling into their hometown a few weeks before Christmas. He’s only come back to bury his estranged father, but there’s no way she’ll be able to avoid him. No one can: he’s become a country-music superstar since going solo and leaving Ava behind.

Jace Morrow grew up believing “money can’t buy happiness” was something people said to make themselves feel better. But now he knows it’s the truth: no matter how many number-one hits he has, he’ll never recapture the magic of singing with Ava. Missing her—loving her—and living with making the wrong choice in life were what made him who he is.

When Jace is roped into being part of the town’s annual Christmas party, he only cares about earning Ava’s forgiveness. And though Ava’s heart has never healed, she loved Jace too much and for too long to shut him out when he’s hurting. As they fall in love all over again, they’re both faced with choices for their future…and this time Jace intends to make the right one.
