Grisly Stories

Now we have the sickening stories of murderous beheadings and mutilations coming out of New Orleans.  It's come to the point where I can hardly bear to watch the news.  So much death and horror forces you to turn away from the incredible inhumanity of man.  It's time, I think, to leave this behind by immersing myself in a different New Orleans during another time period, one where--I like to think--life was lived on a higher, more gracious plane.  No doubt that's an illusion, but I can at least make it true in my books.  I'll start book #4 of my current contract today, then--finally putting the first words of Chapter 1 on paper instead of just tweaking the chapter outline.  Maybe Gavin, the maitre d'armes of Guarded Heart, will take me away from it all.

We at the American Public School Endowments ( based in Lafayette, LA) are helping to begin rebuilding schools hit by Katrina. We have been providing aid to schools in Louisiana since 1989, and are currently seeking the aid and endorsement of authors. R.L. Stine, the children's author and his family have helped generously, and consented to give their endorsement. I was hoping you could contact some other people in the Northern LA Romance writers and collectively lend some support to our efforts. We are, of course, listed on guidestar,as the Acadiana Educational Endowment and a 501c3 nonprofit. the URL to donate is, and i certainly hope you can find it in your heart to pass this along.We also have an online bookseller 100% of whose profits benefit schools,

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email me jacob (at) or to call me at 337 769 1466

Thank You
