Black Cat 5 Live!

It’s live! It’s live! Black Cat 5 is now live. I’m finishing up Black Cat 6 and this should complete the series. I’m enjoying a delightful St. Germain cocktail while I write. What are you up to? Reading or watching anything?


Black Cat 5

OK I have good news and bad news. The good news is Black Cat 5 is now done and I’ll be loading it onto Amazon. The bad news is I just couldn’t squash all the story into this book. I really did try, but it felt incredibly rushed. So I’ll have a book six to…


Black Cat 4

Happy Sunday, everyone! Book 4 in the Black Cat series is live! I’m about 1/3rd of the way through Book 5 which should be the final book. And then that series will be set! What are you up to today?


Black Cat 2 Loading Live

Hurrah! Black Cat 2 is now loading live in Amazon! Black Cat 3 is done and ready to go. Progress is being made! And hopefully I can get out to Newgate Prison in CT on Sunday so I can finish up the New Haven series. The series after that, set at Kripalu in the Berkshires,…


Black Cat Book 2

Happy Friday! I just finished writing book 2 in the Black Cat series. Let me know if you’d like to see a beta-copy of it to offer feedback or suggestions before I put it live! What are you guys up to tonight? Enjoying the start of the weekend?


The Rat of Providence

When I was down in Providence on Sunday I drove past the exact spot that The Pig of Providence ends up. And plus we’re now in The Year of the Rat! Time to get going on writing book 2, before I fall behind an entire year.


Greetings from Ophelia!

I know I’ve fallen incredibly behind with all my Ophelia Sikes books. I wanted to reassure everyone that I’m fine. To help reassure my well-wishers that it’s an “overly busy” issue and not a health issue, I’ll reveal that my actual name is Lisa Shea. I’ve published over 450 books in a wide variety of…


Dream Series Covers

One of my readers suggested the current (left) cover might seem like a quick bed-romp read rather than a layered romantic suspense story. I tried making the cover more layered (right). Does it help? Or do I just need an entirely different cover to convey that sense? Thanks!


Within a Dream

I’d always wanted to write this story. It begins with the heroine dreaming being a dedicated FBI agent hot on the trail of sex traffickers. Then it switches to her “normal” life where she’s a quiet owner of a gift shop with a boring husband. As the story progresses, you realize that she actually IS…


Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! I hope you and yours are having a joy-filled day full of laughter and fun! We watched that Christmas classic, Die Hard :). And I finished the final edits on book 2 in the New Haven series! Merry Christmas!
