My short story is called “The Hacked Match” and, oh my goodness, I stressed so hard over getting my hacker just right. So, so much. Luckily, my husband is a high-level network engineer and one […]

New Contest, New Tab, New Year

I hope everyone is staying warm…or staying cool if you’re in the southern hemisphere, I suppose. Just be staying…is what I’m saying. So, if you’re reading this on the internet, ta-da! Look above! Waaaaah? Who is Wendy Laine? Wendy Laine is my pen name for my Young Adult paranormal due out Summer 2017. See that tab for more information. In […]

First 1000 words of Keeping Time

  Ruin hated the years he ended up in the hospital on New Year’s Eve. It should be easier to take the life of someone who was already dying, but being surrounded by others just waiting their turn seemed like a cruel trick the Fates played on him. It reiterated that Ruin wasn’t a benevolent helper every day of the […]

First 1000 Words of Taking Time

  Bored. “Bored. Bored. Bored.” And he had no confidence whatsoever that tonight would alleviate his condition. Tempus glanced around him at the mortals getting drunker and less interesting by the second. Why squander minutes, let alone hours, in this condition when both were numbered? Especially if you were Joseph Toulouse, age fifty-nine, in the ballroom of this quaint little […]

Taking Time: Servants of Fate #2

Authors aren’t supposed to have favorite books in a series. It’s like picking a favorite child. (Which I do also…though it does vary.) Taking Time is my favorite book in the Servants of Fate world. Tempus is freaking hilarious to me. It’s being released on November 8th, but it’s currently available for preorder. (And it’s less expensive to preorder so […]

An Excerpt from Lip Service

  I’m part of a brilliant new anthology that came out. Eight authors writing novellas centered around the premise of a cyber service providing a fake boyfriend or girlfriend. It’s currently .99 cents, but I’m not sure if it’ll be available forever, so get it while it’s hot. The anthology: Virtual Match is your one-stop shop to convincing those nosy […]

Lip Service–a Cheeky Retelling

So, when the amazing Kait Nolan invited me to join the Virtual Match anthology…I had so many ideas. An anthology centered around an online service that linked up subscribers with a virtual boyfriend or girlfriend? I jumped on board so fast I think I nearly overturned the boat. I narrowed my ideas down to a Cyrano de Bergerac retelling. If […]

Sugar Pie – A Meet Uncute

If you don’t know the term “meet cute” then the sub-heading might be baffling to you. A meet cute is the term for a scene in a film/story/etc that features a couple meeting for the first time in a cute or adorable way. This story is built upon a conversation I had on Twitter that began with me stating that […]
