This could be my desk. The jaguar pictures on the calendar and the reader are ones I've taken. The one on the laptop is a composite I created. I have too much fun with this.

I spend months writing and researching, months editing and then I'm off to the next project and the next and the next and all of a sudden, this book is out so you can fall in love with a jaguar too!!!

Excerpt from You Had Me at Jaguar:


Howard was trying his darnedest not to look in Valerie Chamber’s direction. Not that he would have ever revealed to her that he’d been attracted to her the first time he’d seen her in advanced training as an Enforcer. He still couldn’t believe his boss had asked him and Jillian Greystoke to watch her back, surreptitiously. She was a striking redhead, with the prettiest green eyes, and when she’d pinned him down once during training, the wickedest smile he’d ever seen. He couldn’t help smiling back at her.
The three branches—the Enforcers, JAG, and Guardians—all had a common mission—take down jaguar shifters who posed a threat to humans and shifters alike. Though he and Jillian were with a special section of the JAG now—the USF—that dealt with jaguar/wolf issues, they were the only two agents who had a break in cases. And since Howard was a former Enforcer, the boss felt he would be right for the job. The branches would work together when necessary, but usually all of the agents involved would be well-aware of the situation.
Jillian was a gray wolf and mated to Vaughn, who was busy tracking down a murderous wolf, along with the two other team members of the USF. They hadn’t needed Jillian and Howard also.
Jillian got another text, the fourth one in a half hour. She texted back.
Howard didn’t have to guess who it was from. “Vaughn should have taken you with him.”
“This guy is supposed to be a lot less violent than the one the team is trying to track down. At least as far as the general population is concerned. His wife is another story.”
“I still wish Martin had allowed us to tell Val that we are here, watching her back.”
“The boss said she doesn’t like working with anyone else. Since most Enforcers work alone, she’d feel her boss thought she couldn’t handle the case on her own. How well do you know her?”
“I’ve been in training with her before. Never worked with her though. She’s got some kick-ass moves.”
Jillian smiled at him. “Did she ever take you down?” 
He gave her a dark smile back. “Not that I’d ever admit to.” 

 ***

I love writing about the jaguars and the wolves, and when they finally learn about each other, their world changes. It's not just about their kind being on their own, but they have "cousin" shifters, so to speak. And it's time they help each other out.

 But they're inherently different--the wolves mating for life, the jaguars catting around. The wolves are family-oriented, the jaguars are loners. The wolves chase and take down when they're hunting, the jaguars stalk and ambush. But they all are half human too, and that changes some of their innate animal instincts. In other words, the jaguars get their happily ever afters too. Only...they have to really work for it, just like the wolves do.

Next release is
seal wolf surrender

SEAL Wolf Surrender
Coming May 28, 2019
For a shifter with no interest in she-wolves…he sure is territorial.
Wolf shifter and former Navy SEAL Brock Greystoke isn’t interested in she-wolves. The last one in his life ambushed him with the intent to kill. So when he’s tasked with helping his cousin’s friend get to a wedding, he has no intention of getting involved with her…
She-wolf Natalie Silverton has inadvertently crossed a group of dangerous criminals, and she’s in dire need of a bodyguard. Good thing Brock is there to protect her. At every turn, their work—and play—brings them closer to catching the criminals and to each other, but Brock will have to get them out of this alive if he has any hope of winning Natalie’s heart.

My book became a video game!

When an author writes a story and sends it out into the world, he or she never knows who'll discover it and see some kind of hidden potential in it. That's exactly what happened with my very first Sourcebooks release Strange Neighbors!
Here's what the studio said about it:

Chapters Interactive is delighted to publish Strange Neighbors as a mobile video game on February 11th. When our editors read the book, we knew it would be so fun to take to the mobile screen. We are delighted to show you the art we’ve created for this quirky band of friends sharing their lives in the same apartment building.

“Strange Neighbors is exactly the kind of content our users are going to love,” Joey Jia, Chapters CEO. “We can’t wait for our users to meet the characters.”

Chapters Interactive has 10 million downloads and 3 million monthly active users.
Check out the YouTube trailer they made for it! Strange Neighbors game trailer 

They bought the whole series, so who knows... there may be more!

Valentine Sweets!



By Cheryl Brooks

My eldest son texted me yesterday to ask for "the recipe for those crazy amazing chocolate cookies you used to make--the ones that usually didn't make it past the dough stage." I can't remember the last time I made them, but I must've posted that recipe on a blog at some point because I had saved it in my computer and even had a picture, so I was ready for him. 

I've done quite a lot of blogging since my first book was published in 2008. My personal blog ran for four years and I blogged every single day. I gave that up a few years back, and now, after 134 posts,  I'm giving up this blog. We've had a lot of fun here over the years, but blogs aren't as popular as they once were, and the interaction with readers, which was the best part of blogging, has waned considerably. Plus, unless I finally finish the manuscript I've been working on for nearly a year, Mystic is my last book with Sourcebooks.

My son moved from Indiana to San Mateo, California about a year ago, and he says it's cold there today. When asked what the temperature was, his response was "50." I'm sitting here in Indiana with temps in the twenties and howling winds, so I don't have much sympathy for him. He was told that the move to California would turn him into a weather wimp, and that prediction appears to have been true. 

But tomorrow is Valentine's Day, so wherever you are, make some cookies, curl up with a good book, and try to enjoy whatever weather you're having. 

 Chocolate Cookies


Ingredients:

¼ cup shortening
¾ cup cocoa
½ cup butter
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
Powdered sugar

Directions: 
Melt shortening and butter. Add sugar, vanilla, and cocoa. Mix well. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each one. Add dry ingredients. Mix well and chill. Roll into balls, then roll in powdered sugar. Bake at 350 F for 12 – 15 minutes.

How to Celebrate Valentine's Day in Holiday, Texas


If you wanted to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Holiday, Texas, first you’d have to find it. That might be tough seeing as how it’s a fictional place. But if you did manage to stumble into town and make your way to The Rambling Rose, the oldest honky tonk in Texas, you’d be in for a real treat.

First off, Charlie, the feisty manager, would give you a big ol’ Texas welcome. She’d usher you in and seat you at one of the long wooden tables by the stage where one of the regular performers like The Twister Sisters would be wrapping up a set.

Dixie would swing by to take your order. Two frosty mugs of Lone Star, no doubt. Then she’d tell you about the specials Angelo had been working on all day in the kitchen. He loves to go all out for special occasions and might even have some Texas surf and turf like a filet stuffed with crab meat or a ribeye served alongside a barbeque lobster tail.

While you waited for your food, Beck, Charlie’s husband might stop by to offer a sample of his new craft beer—a bacon-infused, maple syrup ale. Then Presley would take the stage and get everyone out on the dance floor to two-step. Don’t worry if you don’t know how… Cash and Jinx would be on hand if you needed some help with the steps. Or you could sit that one out and head out back for a souvenir photo with the Rose's current mascot, Pork Chop, the pig.

By the time your dinner arrived you’d be ready to rest your feet and set a spell. But you couldn’t get too comfy because no doubt, The Rambling Rose would have some sort of entertainment planned. It wouldn’t be the Sweetest Swine pageant—that happens in the spring. And it wouldn’t be the Naughty or Nice Elf Auction because that takes place around the holidays along with the Jingle Bell Jamboree. But, they haven’t had a Baby, Light My Fire contest for a while—not since poor Dwight almost burned the place down.

You’d stay until last call, because the time would pass so fast you’d have no idea how late it was. Then you’d catch a ride to the bed and breakfast on Valentine where Mr. and Mrs. Knotts would have turned down your bed and left the light on for you.

I won’t go into detail about what might happen next… it’s your Valentine’s Day, after all. But if that sounds like the kind of night you might enjoy, I hope you’ll check out the Holiday, Texas series. All-American Cowboy and Cowboy Christmas Jubilee are available now. Cowboy Charming will hit the shelves on July 30th.
