  1. Hi Jacqueline my name is Dawn and I had a friend pick your book
    Running into a Brick Wall and just finished and loved it!
    I have read Running into Tenptation and Running up the Score also
    is there another book called Running on Empty ? And if so how can I get that one and when is another one coming out I am hooked on them!

  2. Dawn,

    I am so glad you’ve enjoyed the “Running” books! I am currently doing some research for the next book in the series, “Running on Empty,” and I expect to get to work on it in the next month or so. With any luck I’ll have it out for next year. Last year I came out with three books, this year I’m trying to enjoy life a bit more, so I’m shooting for two. I am thrilled you’re “hooked,” you’ve inspired me to get back in front of the computer and write Brick and Jenny’s next story! Thanks for writing, it means a lot to me.


  3. Hi Jackie, I need your book about Sunset Beach. My husband had read it in the Dr’s office and wants that as a christmas present. Do You have any book signings this week or next week. I live in Sea Trail.
