 Wel­come to my home page, where you can get the lat­est scoop!


Gayle-Carline-March 2017-022You can look for the roses in life, or you can look for the thorns. I’m look­ing for roses this year. How about you?


It’s Octo­ber!  I do love this month for many rea­sons. My son was born in Octo­ber, which gives me per­mis­sion to cel­e­brate with cake! We have Hal­loween, which gives me per­mis­sion to cel­e­brate with fun-sized candy! And we have the Pla­cen­tia Her­itage Fes­ti­val, which gives me per­mis­sion to cel­e­brate with books!

Yes, I will be in Tri-City Park on Sat­ur­day, Octo­ber 14th, from 10 am to 4 pm (unless inclement weather closes us early). I will have all my books avail­able in paper­back, for sale at exclu­sively low prices I give my Pla­cen­tia fans.

Not in Pla­cen­tia? Can’t get to the park? A devoted Kin­dle reader? Have I got news for you!

Over the Her­itage Fes­ti­val week­end, Kin­dle read­ers can pick up HIT OR MIS­SUS, the sec­ond in the Peri Min­neopa Mys­tery Series, for FREE.


The other books in the Peri series are already at great prices. FREEZER BURN is avail­able for only 99 cents, and the lat­est two, THE HOT MESS and A MORE DEADLY UNION are both $3.99–less than a pumpkin-spiced latte.

As a mat­ter of fact, all of my Kin­dle books are rea­son­ably priced for the reader on-the-go. Pick them up this week­end, and I hope to see you at the Park!







I did star in a commercial.

It’s about writ­ers, for writ­ers, adver­tis­ing the South­ern Cal­i­for­nia Writ­ers Con­fer­ence. Our next con­fer­ence is this Sep­tem­ber in Irvine (there’s also one in Feb­ru­ary in San Diego). Let this moti­vate you to check out the conference–I’ll be there, teach­ing a work­shop or two!




Works-in-Progress My newest man­u­script, aka The Girl Pirate Fan­tasy, aka BLOOD DRAGON RIS­ING (offi­cial work­ing title), is mak­ing the rounds through agents. It’s a long and excru­ci­at­ing process, and of course I have an Excel spread­sheet to mark off how many agents I’ve queried and how many have responded. More NOs than Please-Tell-Me-Mores, but I’m still push­ing through.


Lisette de Lille dreams of drag­ons. This is not nor­mal for a young noble­woman. Nei­ther are her dreams for high adven­ture and true love. Yet some dreams come true, even if they mean being a vic­tim to a polit­i­cal coup, sold to pirates, sub­jected to a blood curse, guided by god­desses, embroiled in a fight to the death with a lover, or turn­ing into a deadly dragon at night. Blood Dragon Ris­ing is the first install­ment of The Blood Dragon fan­tasy series.

Tune in next time to find out more.


OCTO­BER 22 Another Sun­day, another month, means another OC Sis­ters in Crime. This month we have author Daryl Wood Ger­ber, who will dis­cuss author brand­ing, along with her lat­est, brand-new series, the French Bistro Series. This is a great after­noon for dis­cussing the highs, lows, joys and dif­fi­cul­ties of writ­ing cozies, and a chance to net­work with other writers/readers. Join us! For more infor­ma­tion, http://​www​.ocsis​tersin​crime​.org.

Life is good, folks!


That’s all for now, but check back when you can. 


BTW, if you want to lis­ten to me ram­ble aim­lessly about writ­ing, I’ve been priv­i­leged to be a guest on two shows. You can check them out here:

•  Gar­rett Miller’s Blogtalk Radio show, Rat­ed­GRa­dio. http://​www​.blogtalkra​dio​.com/​g​a​r​r​e​t​t​m​i​l​l​e​r​/​2​0​1​3​/​0​9​/​1​3​/​r​a​t​e​d​-​g​-​r​a​dio

• Jason Matthews’ Google+ Show, Indie Authors. http://​www​.youtube​.com/​w​a​t​c​h​?​v​=​9​y​O​T​9​Z​Y​4​TnA

The mys­ter­ies and humor are all still avail­able and sell­ing as ebooks and paper­backs. Take a tour of my author page on Ama­zon, pick out your favorite, and start read­ing imme­di­ately. Why wait?


Stay tuned… I’ll post more as I book ‘em.

In the meantime,

Keep read­ing, Peeps!
