It's Been A While...

It's been so long since I've posted anything here. Sorry for the media blackout - it's been a hard few months. First - I lost my job. Not for anything bad, I just wasn't the right person for the position. And, I learned that I don't want to be in charge. I've been using the time off to evaluate what I really want to do and I've decided that a part-time job will be enough. I want enough money to be able to do all my author events but not work so much that I don't have time for them or for writing. In other words... I want to give this writing gig a serious try.

I have released two books in the last few months - Loving Jessie's Girl was first published in the Winter Lites Anthology put out by my publisher. You can still get this great collection of stories for $.99 but only for another ten days. After that, the set is gone forever. You can get it here

This fall and winter season, Lavish Publishing is proud to bring together five of our new and established authors along with a few of their friends to present Winter Lites: A Collection of Seasoned Tales.

Inside this boxed set of novellas, eight special journeys await – all clean reads, ranging from love stories to paranormal thrillers. Each is told in the authors' unique voice, all are professionally edited and proofed, and only available in this special bundle for the 2016 holiday season.

Loving Jessie's Girl grew out of an idea that hit me while listening to I Drive Your Truck by Lee Brice. That song resonated with me and I started typing. It turned out completely different than my original story idea.

Until AJ Monroe left Indiana after college he had always lived in his identical twin brother’s shadow. He had made a life for himself in Denver, Colorado, away from Jessie, away from Indiana. But when AJ feared for his brother's safety, he left everything behind to step back into the shadow he thought he had outgrown. Finding his brother was AJ's only concern...until he met Jessie's girl.
Fiercely independent, Rina Abbot hid her true situation from everyone, including her best friend, Jessie. Out of money and unable to care for her rescue dogs she had no choice but to accept the help of the handsome stranger with a familiar face. Afraid to trust him, she tried to ignore the feelings he stirred within her as they searched for his missing brother.

But secrets never stay secrets for long. Finally open about their feelings for each other, Rina’s secrets began to wreak havoc on their lives. Would Rina’s secrets force AJ to give up his dream of loving Jessie’s girl?

I am working on book 2 and hope to have it ready to publish later this year.

And in December I released Last Chance Christmas. If you've read Invisible you will recognize Brent and Jordan. After their rocky start of course it would not be smooth sailing for them to find their forever together. You can get it here

From the outside, Brent Halston and Jordan McKenna had the perfect life: the house, the dog, fulfilling careers, and their love. However, Jordan’s past refused to leave her alone, threatening to destroy all they had built together. Without explanation, Jordan pushed Brent out of her life, leaving him devastated and confused. In an attempt to start over, Brent relocated to Fairfield Corners, bought an extravagant house, and mourned the loss of his Jojo. To keep herself from drowning in her own grief, Jordan gave everything she had to her career as a doctor, running the free clinic on the rough side of town. As the holiday season approached, a frantic phone call from Jordan’s brother pulled Brent back into Jordan’s life, giving them the opportunity to reconnect. Battling the past and present, can their love survive secrets and betrayal? Would this be their last chance Christmas?

And for the major news...

Fairfield Corners Book 3 is finally finished! Where There's Faith will release on March 31. It's been a long time coming. It's not up for pre-order yet but you can add it to your Goodreads TBR here. I am so excited for you to read this one. I hope you will love Robbie and Faith as much as I do.

A past she can't remember. A love he can't forget.

After hitting rock bottom, Robert Newlin embraced sobriety and tried to live his life quietly and alone at his family’s lake cottage. Blaming himself for the accident that claimed his wife and unborn baby, he spent most of his time alone and grieving until Faith moved into the cottage next door.
Faith McMillan had no memory of her life before that day three years ago. The physical scars had faded but the emotional ones were still fresh and raw. Living rent-free seemed like a great way to finish her second book and would give her the time to figure out her next move. But then she met the reclusive guy next door.
Robbie and Faith – can two broken people who vowed to live their lives alone find happiness together?

As I search for the perfect part-time job to subsidize the writing, I am working on 3 stories. Preacher's Redemption is a stand-alone with a biker and a baby.

I have also started the first book in the Ground Zero ~ Rock Star Love Stories series, tentatively titled Just One Look. If you want a peek at the series I have a prequel novelette, One Night Stand, that you can get for free for signing up for my newsletter. You can get that here.
