The Delancey Dynasty:




In 2009 I was finishing my Black Hills Brotherhood trilogy for Intrigue and hoping I could return to New Orleans as a setting for my next books. I spoke with my editor at RWA Nationals and pitched an idea that was beginning to gel in the back of my mind. I think I actually created the pitch as I was saying it.  
Huey P. Long
One of the most infamous politicians in American history is Huey P. Long of Louisiana. He used all sorts of illegal and unethical tactics to get what he wanted as governor and in the Louisiana senate, but he was always popular among the voters. I've often wondered what the lives of the children and grandchildren of such a man would be like. So I created a fictitious politician named Con Delancey and gave him 10 grandchildren (including a bastard son,) plus a great-niece.


Con Delancey of Chef Voleur, Louisiana, was one of the state's most infamous politicians. His grandchildren are grown now and must live with his scandalous legacy. Each one of them has a past and a secret. And each one has a story.

Chef Voleur


I sent in a proposal and within a short time I heard back. They loved the idea and wanted to do all eleven books as The Delancey Dynasty.

Con Delancey's grandkids include cops, private investigators, military and attorneys, despite the fact that each one of them received a substantial inheritance from their grandfather.

There's an overarching mystery that runs through the books--Who really killed Con Delancey? Although his personal assistant went to prison for his murder, the man declared his innocence until the day he died. With the final two books in the series, Sanctuary in Chef Voleur (July) and Blood Ties in Chef Voleur (August,) that mystery is solved, amidst kidnappings, murder and two very steamy, very moving love stories.

Sanctuary in Chef Voleur is available now and officially hits shelves on July 1, and the final Delancey book, Blood Ties in Chef Voleur will be released on August 1.  Between now and then, I'll be blogging on several different blogs and will be throwing a live release party on June 25, 8-10 pm, on Blogtalk Radio's Hummingbird Place, Your Home for Romance. You can listen online or call in at 646-652-2670. You have to call in to ask a question. 

The Host of Hummingbird Place and I will be live on air from 8pm - 10pm. I'll be talking about:
  • keeping up with everybody in a multi-book series,
  • my favorite hero and heroine,
  • the ending that made me cry,
  • the book that took place in one night,
  • the goriest beginning I've ever written,
  • the heroes and heroines who get themselves into impossible situations and expect me to get them out, and much much more.

I'd love to talk to you and hear your thoughts and questions about this interesting, complex and complicated extended family. I'll be live on the air with host Donna Wright of Blogtalk Radio's Hummingbird Place, and I'll be giving away lots of swag -- some of which you'll have to be there and speak up to win.

Through My Lens




VISITING AUBREY, TEXAS

Home to the SLOANE brothers.


I love to research actual locations for my books. So when it was time to write TEXAS FAMILY RECKONING, we took a drive and snapped a lot (really, A LOT) of local pictures. There's an abandoned Peanut Dryer Building next to the railroad tracks that became a very important part of the second book.

No spoilers...but if you've already read THE RENEGADE RANCHER, I'd be interested to see your reaction to the pictures.
