It Takes a Spy – by Sheridan Jeane CoverFinalLG-ItTakesASpy

In 1851, Cecilia Paring has serious reservations about marrying her fiancé, Devin Montlake. Gone is the boy who could capture her heart with a word or a glance and in his place is a man who has made it clear that to be a proper barrister’s wife, the exciting and impulsive Cecilia must change as well.
Although Devin Montlake loves his orderly life as a barrister, he’s determined to follow his roadmap to achieve his goal of becoming a judge. His biggest obstacle seems to be convincing his headstrong fiancée to fulfill her social obligations with a modicum of propriety. But when the jewelry collection belonging to Cecilia’s family is stolen the night before it is to be auctioned off and Devin is framed for the crime, he discovers that following his much-loved rules won’t solve this particular problem. He’ll need the inventiveness of his irrepressible fiancée to catch the thief.

What’s coming next?

Isn’t Summer Grand?

I’ve been very busy since the beginning of June. But summer is always a busy time!

My sons have been involved in a Performing Arts Camp for a number of years, and I thoroughly enjoy volunteering to help with the costumes because it lets me get to know the kids and the other parents. Fortunately, there are many people who help with the costumes, so I was able to maintain a fairly rigorous writing schedule… until around July 10th. After that, the frenzy of summer vacation overtook us. We traveled to San Diego and then on to Costa Mesa for my niece’s wedding. We visited my mother-in-law, and spent time with various relatives we haven’t seen in ten years. My kids seemed to enjoy the trip. I say “seemed to” because they are teenagers. Those creatures are notorious for either hiding their feelings or showing disdain for most things. Fortunately, my sons were fairly enthusiastic throughout the trip, and we all had a great time. My older son learned to boogie-board, and my youngest son went paragliding (while my husband and I tried not to freak out).

After we returned home, we visited University of Pittsburgh so my older son could see if he might want to attend college there (he might), and I had to deal with some medium-to-large sized emergencies. But I am mostly in one piece (except for my toenail, but that’s an entirely different story.)


The good news is that my editor is reviewing two of my books. She is about to complete her final pass on my novella “It Takes a Spy…,” and she just sent me her first round of edits for “Lady Catherine’s Secret.” Once I have her final stamp of approval, I’ll begin working with the cover artist for both books. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with! I absolutely LOVED the cover of “Gambling on a Scoundrel.”

Should I do a big cover reveal? Definitely!

Stay tuned!

Times, They Are A-Changin

It’s springtime, my first book is out, my son went on his first round of college visits last week, and my kitten just came in heat. Times, they are a-changin.

I’m thrilled that my book, Gambling on a Scoundrel, is out. Thank you to everyone who supported me and purchased a copy. You’re my angels!

Released April 1, 2014

I absolutely LOVE the cover, and I must thank Su at Earthly Charms for making it look marvelous! There’s nothing quite like holding your very own book in your hand.

Yes, my son is beginning to investigate colleges. Fortunately, he doesn’t want to travel far from home, so that makes the prospect of him leaving infinitesimally easier for me to face. At least he isn’t trying to move to the other side of the country.

And my sweet kitten Leia turns a year old this month, so I won’t be able to call her a kitten much longer. She’s been a wonderful addition to our family and I’m thankful that I decided to sit on the porch one day last summer to write and heard her cries of distress. She was such a wee little mite of a thing when I coaxed her out from under our woodpile. It’s amazing that a predator didn’t decide to swoop down and eat her for lunch! With her white coat she’d stand out in the dark woods.

I’m busily polishing my novella, It Takes a Spy. It will kick off my Secrets and Seduction series and will be out this summer, so watch for it! What sort of cover do you think Su will manage to create this time? Something stellar, I’m certain! I can’t wait for the cover reveal!
