In 2017 I’m making changes to my writing schedule. Over the past few years, I’ve released one or two full length novels. It’s getting more difficult as I maintain a full time job.
So, I’m going back to my beginning and writing short. I began as a poet and I’ll return to writing poetry and short stories. After I DO , BUT FIRST… and FANGED DECEPTION release early in the year, I’ll make that transition and stick with it for at least a year.
There is a strong possibility I’ll put together annual anthologies with my short stories and poems to have at conventions.
The three covers you see here are all short stories.
As of December 1, 2015, I got the rights back for COMING HOME and YOUR BIGGEST FAN.
I’m working on giving both stories a look through then I’ll re-release them.
The new covers are amazing. They should be ready for upload in the next week.
I’ll be at Florida SuperCon at the Miami Beach Convention Center June 25th – 28th.
I own Dark Fantasy Press and will be in that booth space #1927. I will have some books to sign with me, including the Candy Man Delivery Series paperback with all six stories in it! It came out to 300 pages in paperback. Wooo!!
I’ll have some of my Rane Sjodin books as well as copies of Contessa to sign. I’ll bring cover cards, business cards, and some book marks.
Come on down to the sun and say hello!

I’m combining all six stories into an anthology for the summer. eBook sites will have it this May (2015) and I’ll have paperbacks for signing at conventions.
Master sculptor Viviana is pleasantly surprised to find a tall block of milk chocolate in her shops cooler with simple instructions. She’s to carve the perfect male figure, think of what she wants in a dream man, and then sprinkle the enclosed magic dust over the chocolate man. Adonis shimmers to light bringing passion, devotion, and love.
They opened the Candy Man Delivery Service to share their joy and bring chocolate men to women who need complete devotion and lifelong passion.
In one set, all six Candy Man Delivery Service stories!
Alicia ended a lucrative modeling career to get her MBA. Trying to find work in a crowded job market discourages her, as she contemplates making a living in a bikini again. Fellow model and friend, Susie, watches the light fade from Alicia’s dark brown complexion and puts her name into contention for a Candy Man.
Unaware of her friends idea for her future, Alicia continues her job hunt. She arrives for an interview only to find the interviewer in board shorts with an obvious erection. Appalled, she runs out followed by his assistant begging for autographs until she kicks him off the elevator.
Humiliated and discouraged, she starts her own modeling agency. Calling friends in for favors helps her with a successful launch. Now, for a man. As she sits in her condo watching the lights dance across Biscayne Bay, her phone rings. She’s been chosen for a Candy Man. Can Vangelis tempt her to stay home with him or will she pull her Dark Chocolate Peppermint man into the chaotic modeling world? Can their new relationship survive the tug-of-war?
Releasing October 15, 2014 is the 5th in the Candy Man Delivery series.
Ava’s skills as a chef took her from private celebrity chef to owner of Miami’s hottest new restaurant. Shy since kindergarten, she expressed her passions in the kitchen. Loneliness lowered her shoulders as the accolades faded at closing each night. At thirty-three, she was still single, preferring a crowded kitchen to a man across a small table.
Her brother signed her up with Viviana, owner of The Candy Man Delivery Service. She’d been appalled until he showed her the picture of Viviana’s man, Adonis. Her anxiety quelled each day by a furious work schedule then ran rampant over her mind as she tried to sleep.
Exhausted and shaking, she opens her condo door to find Marcus with caramel colored skin, dark hair, and intense brown eyes. He helps her bloom as she experiences complete devotion for the first time in her life.
