About June


Wife, Mother, Writer, Lunatic. Not necessarily in that order.

 "There is a fine line between genius and crazy... I like to use that line as a jump rope!"

June, who prefers to go by Bug, was born in Philadelphia but moved to Maui, Hawaii when she was four. She met her “Prince Charming” on Kauai and is currently living “Happily Ever After” in a small town in Minnesota. 

Her son and daughter are her greatest accomplishments. She takes pride in embarrassing them every chance she gets. 

Being hopelessly addicted to 80's music is her super power.

There is no cable TV in her home, but her second passion to books is movies. The Princess Bride, Notting Hill, Timeline, and a Knight's Tale can be found playing over and over again.

You can take the girl outta the island, but you can't take the island outta the girl. ~ Me



I'm the worst at promoting myself in every possible avenue there is. We've been in our house for 2 years - my neighbor just found out I write. Yeah... I suck at talking about "me."
So...I thought I should add to my "about me" page with what I do for a day job.  
The site needs work - I'll get to it in-between sequels! - but you'll get the idea. If you want something engraved, we will do our best to accommodate you!

Yeah, I know. Killer logo! ;) That's my dog Otter. If I'm going to do something, it's going to be fun. 
Just because people thought I couldn't top that, I named our wood engraving division.

Life is too short not to laugh! Give me a holler if you have any questions!


Recently I've picked up an old hobby. We spend A LOT of time in the car. No afghans for me. Gotta be short & sweet.

Minon #1. (Minimal cussing required)
There's a "B" on his chest because he's MY minion. ;)

     There was a theme going on here for a while... 

And then hats....                                One for my grandson for his fire truck kick.
And more just because.....

Now...a superhero kick. :) 


Interview over at LRC 12/12/12
Interview at RomFan 1/22/13


Since my stories all swerve into that romance lane, I guess I should share some of my crushes here. I can't tie them up in my basement, might as well keep them a click away ;)
Here they are, in no particular order.

Chris Evans
1 word. Light. My Fire.

Gerard Butler
Grrrrr. That is all

Chris Hemsworth
Hammer time :)

My daughter would kill me if Hugh Jackman didn't make the cut. Duh.

Robert Downy Jr.
Stealing my Aunt Barb's favorite. Too bad!!

Channing Tatum
No caption needed.

Nathan Fillon
Yes, Firefly was killed before it's time. Thank all that is holy for Castle.

Ryan Reynolds
He stole my heart as a teen in Two Guys, a Girl, & a Pizza Place. It's only gone uphill from there.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan
 Although the picture doesn't show it, I love his smile.

Matthew McConaughey
Love you long time.

Colin O'Donoghue
This is new.. Hook from Once Upon a Time. Falling for the bad guy? Really? Guess there is some truth to that.

And now...a hitter. We loved Leverage. 
Christian Kane

I don't know about you, but the list goes on. I just sorta need a break here.... ;)

And now some random funnies to cool off :D

How I've felt my whole life:

Forget "Careful or you'll end up in my novel." You're already in it and I killed you in chapter 12.

And just because... 
Writers... ever feel like you lost your chance with that agent because of your synopsis? LOL! 

Another LMAO moment I just had to share:


I have a forum over at Coffee time! Come visit me!
