Roberta Kagan
Thank you so much for your interest in my work. My mother was Jewish and my father was Romany. From the time I was young, the dark memories of the holocaust were apart of my life.  Soon all the survivors will be gone, and the lessons of the holocaust must not be lost with them. I studied, researched,  and met with survivors, and each story of survival has one common thread, that even in the darkest hour there’s always a flicker of light. And that flicker of light is, love.
I send you many blessings. Roberta

Anne Kennison
With more than 30 years of lawyering under her belt, and now retired from the practice of law, Anne describes herself as a “”recovering attorney.”” Anne’s unique plot twists come from a fertile imagination honed by those years of experience.

When Anne’s not writing, she dabbles in photography, makes scrapbooks for her two granddaughters, makes jewelry, hangs out with the grandkids, and travels with her husband. Although they have traveled extensively from the Arctic Circle to Tierra del Fuego, and from Asia to Europe, what they love most is adventure travel.

R.P. Dahlke
Biography for A Dangerous Harbor
This book and its sequel, Hurricane Hole, are the result of my years sailing in Mexico with my husband aboard our cutter rigged Hylas 47 sailboat. Mexico is a culture that was, and still is, struggling to gain a foothold in the 21st Century. These romantic suspense books (no graphic sex, but lots of humor) are about Americans who’re here because they can’t seem to outrun the problems they so desperately want to leave behind.

You can keep up with what’s going on at Amazon with my books by following my author’s page:

Jerri Hines                                Colleen Connally

I have also updated by profile picture.


Don’t miss out on what is coming up with my books. Since Belle of Charleston was released, I’ve had it on Amazon’s KDP. It has been available on Kindleunlimited. Things are going to change this summer. I will be pulling Southern Legacy off of KDP. It will become available on Barnes and Noble and iTunes soon. Until then, if you are a member of Kindleunlimited…don’t miss out on Southern Legacy while you can get it for free.


Coming this summer, Framed, Book Two of Boston’s Crimes of Passion will be released, followed later this year with Set Fire to the Rain—concluding Winds of Betrayal!

Afterwards, I am going to be addressing Whispers of a Legend Series.

I’m looking forward to what’s coming! Hope you will join me!

Having Fun With Designs!


I don’t think there is a question that Book Bub is quite popular. It is the one of the preferred advertising options that authors and publishers love. Another awesome feature of Book Bub is their blog (Book Bub Partner’s Blog) for authors. They offered a ton of helpful information to help authors sale books.

But one of the problems I have at the moment. Time. I don’t have time to investigate some of their information. I save it to come back to later. I have so much coming at me right now. I need easy and simple.

Well yesterday afternoon, I took a moment to try out some of Book Bub Partner’s Blog suggestions.  I admit I had fun Canva and DesignFeed. The image above is from Designfeed. It was so simple.

I still have to finish up trying out all of  the article. I got sidetrack playing with images, but I would highly recommend following Book Bub Partner’s Blog for any author.

I’m not sure if these will help promote my books, but it’s fun and easy. Try it out! Wish finishing my next book was this easy!!!

Have a great day!




Heat Up Your Summer!

July is vacation month, but I haven’t been on vacation. I’m working diligently on Seductive Lies under my pen name Colleen Connally . It’s coming. I’m at the stage in the book where I’m obsessing about it. It’s all I’m doing in my free time.

Ask my husband. Twice this last weekend he went to the beach without me. My hair…oh, my goodness…I need to go to the salon or just let it go gray. My house…if it wasn’t for my daughter, I don’t think you could get through it. And it’s so hot…

This is what I’m working on.

seductivelies (5)

Erin Dameron-Hill has created an absolutely gorgeous cover for Seductive Lies…

I don’t have a set the exact release date. Looks like early September. I have to get a few things organized. Then I will have a set date!

I just have to mention Book Bub. There aren’t  many places an author can promote to get the results you can when you’re on Book Bub. It’s Awesome! I’ve had two books on Book Bub—Seductive Secrets and The Cry For Freedom. Both are Free eBooks. Last Sunday, The Cry For Freedom was advertised. Today, Embrace of the Enemy should be in the top #100 of Family Saga. My fault. I thought I had it listed in Family Saga. Didn’t. Should be showing up soon.

cryforfreedom (2)embraceenemyfinalkissofdeceitfinal

I just wanted to take a minute and answer a question. A reader asked me why I ended The Cry For Freedom as a cliff-hanger. Was it to sell my the other books in the series? Quite frankly, yes.

Isn’t that what an author is supposed to do? When I give away a book, I do so with the intention of selling more books. I want to give away a sampling of my writing so a reader can get a feel for my writing. It works two-fold. A reader gets a free book and I hope I gain a fan who wants to read more of my works.

I have a few series. Secret Lives Series under Colleen Connally are all stand alone books. They are connected by the premise behind each book. Each of the heroines live a secret life in some form or other.  I might in the foresee able future take a character from one or two of the books and write a story about them. I think Malissa in  Seductive Secrets deserves a book of her own as well as one of the new characters you will read about soon (I hope) in Seductive Lies.

Whispers of a Legend series is one cliffhanger after another. It won’t stop until the last book.

Winds of Betrayal isn’t quite as much a cliffhanger series, but the story won’t wrap up until the last book. There will be unanswered questions until that time.

While I’m thinking about it, want to share a couple of reviews….

Seductive Secrets:

Amazon Review—

Broken Legacy:

Amazon Review—

SUSPENSE!!!, May 13, 2013
By Patty

This novel has taught me not to give up hope in the person you loved and trust. Colleen Connolly wrote this book with passion, loyalty and lot of suspense. I love how she introduces her characters, and how the story unfolds. It kept me from going to bed: as I snuggled up and read till it came to an end. GREAT BOOK!! I would recommend to anyone who love a piece of historical romance.

Have a good one! Keep Reading!
