Dear Santa, What Do I Get My Favorite Author for the Holidays?

Chicks on the Case

Happy Holidays! I’m so happy to be here. My name is Julie Moffett and I write the award-winning mystery series featuring geek girl extraordinaire, Lexi Carmichael. Geeks, Lies and Spies, oh, my! In my mystery series, you’ll meet Lexi and her nerd herd—a quirky gang of tech friends who save the day and solve the mystery by using their super-charged brains. There are currently 10 books in the series, with the latest one, NO REGRETS, scheduled to release on January 8th.

I also have a brand new young adult spy/adventure series that releases TOMORROW titled WHITE KNIGHTS. Hooray! Imagine Nancy Drew crossed with Velma from Scooby Doo and you’ll get Angel Sinclair! It’s a fun book and clean for teens, young adults and the young-at-heart. 🙂


Since it’s the holiday season and we’re talking about books and new releases, I thought I would offer you a way to present your…

1814 Vauxhall and Drury Lane: The Belles’ Time Travel Machine

Susana's Parlour

I hope you enjoyed your stay in WWI France via Caroline Warfield’s Blog. You are now once again in Regency England! A Malicious Rumor in the Bluestocking Belles’ Never Too Lateanthology—takes place this year (as well as The Umbrella Chronicles: George and Dorothea’s Story, but you have already been there, right?), but we hope this is not your last stop via The Bluestocking Belles’ Time Machine.

Miss Alice Crocker and Mr. Peter de Luca from A Malicious Rumor are both employees of Vauxhall Gardens. Alice is a gardener and Peter is a violinist. Peter was unfairly dismissed from the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, and Alice and her grandfather help him seek justice.

Events at Vauxhall Gardens in 1814

The season began on 15 June and ended on 26 August. The finale was highlighted by a double display of fireworks by Mons. Bologna and Signor D. Mortram.

I hope you enjoyed your stay in Revolutionary France of 1795 via Elizabeth Ellen Carter’s Blog. You are now in Regency England!

Thanks for stopping by and welcome to 1814: a time of decadent balls, glorious gowns, sharp dressed men, and, unfortunately, war. Our time machine will be visiting 1814 twice, so for this stop, we are focusing on the first half of 1814.

1814 is the year my novella, The Umbrella Chronicles: George & Dorothea’s Story, in the Never Too Late anthology takes place.

The setting is England during a period of time known as The Regency. This is because King George III had become unfit to rule and so his son, George, ruled by proxy as the Prince Regent beginning in 1811 until his father’s death in 1820, at which time the Prince Regent became King George…

Welcome, Time Travelers, to 1181.

You’ve now found yourself in medieval, England… Sorry about the war, harsh living condition, and bad drinking water but there is a lot more happening at the time of my story…

Ruler of England
Henry II (1133-1189) is king of England in 1181, and he’s part of the good news. He’s building up our court systems and seems to be very big on the rule of law, something that may catch on. He and…

My Namesake has Gone Over Rainbow Bridge

Sneaky The Library Cat's Blog

For those who may not have heard the sad news, my author’s 17-year-old cat, Oliver, crossed over to Rainbow Bridge on Saturday, November 4th, after a bout with kidney failure that weakened his legs but couldn’t kill his spirit. Debbie named me after him and, although I’m a character cat, I was proud of my real-life counterpart. Oliver also appeared in Debbie’s articles as well as being her inspiration for me. She wrote a beautiful memorial post on her blog that you can read here: 

Debbie is also offering a free e-copy of her short story, The Path to Rainbow Bridge, until Friday, November 10, in memory of Oliver and to comfort others who have also lost their own precious pets. Although I am not in this story, many of Debbie’s cats who she has loved and lost throughout the years are featured.

As an additional memorial…
