Dinosaurs & Cherry Stems, my humorous romance, is still making the rounds via Amazon, Smashwords, B&N, Kobo, and ITunes/Apple. This book is the first in the series, Cindy's Crusades, and was also selected as a Semi-Finalist for The Kindle Book Reviews 2013.
The sequel to Dinosaurs & Cherry Stems and Book Two in the Cindy’s Crusades Series is called The Sugar Ticket. Currently available on Amazon, B&N, ITunes/Apple, and Kobo.
My short stories can be found to the left, and I'll be adding another to the mix very soon! If you click on the books, a magic wand will take you over to Amazon for a preview of each story!
Anyway, it’s going to be a busy year! My work in progress will be taking me out of fiction and into real life – sharing my experiences as an older sibling to a handicapped brother. Title TBA and launching later this year. Then back to fiction and humor with Book Three in the Cindy’s Crusades series, You're Gonna Get It

Blurb for Dinosaurs & Cherry Stems:
Twice divorced, cynical Cindy Layton feels like a relic with prehistoric baggage, and doubts she canmuster the courage to establish a new relationship, even if it's on her own terms.
Her journey out of the Stone Age hits freaky, hilarious turbulence when she joins an Internet dating service. The scammers and weirdoes she meets in cyberspace make Cindy want to crawl back into her cave, until she receives an accidental email from Jay DeMatteo.
Jay has the dating blues, too, but after meeting Cindy, reconsiders his options. Now it's up to him to convince her it's never too late to pursue a meaningful relationship, even when there's baggage.
Can Cindy and Jay navigate the maze of midlife adolescence to reach each other's hearts?
The answers are revealed in Dinosaurs and Cherry Stems...so fasten your seatbelts, there's a bumpy ride ahead!
One of my latest five star reviews: "Dinosaurs and Cherry Stems is without a doubt one of the best books I've ever read - bar none, and if you saw the 30+ bookcases in my home, you would know that I'm a voracious reader. Ms. Ricci has provided the reader with a full gamut of emotions. I laughed, I cried, I was entertained, and I have since shared the experience with anyone who would listen. As an internationally known author myself, I can attest to the fact that both the writing and the editing are superb, but the author has gone even further by adding to the mix her spot-on understanding of the human condition. I want my own clone of her hero, and I want to be her heroine. It doesn't get any better than this." via the Internationally Read, Annie Acorn.
