One thing is on his side, he knows what she wants and needs. This time, he WILL make her his again, and to hell with whoever gets in his way


What is the hardest part of writing your books?

Each book has its own difficult area. Sometimes it’s the content matter really getting to me, and I’ll have to take breaks, because it' so emotional. Other times, it’s nailing the ending,  or in the case today, it’s getting the beginning right. I think the hardest part of writing isn’t writer’s block per say, but writer’s overload. There are so many different roads you can travel down.

What songs are most played on your Ipod?

Do you have critique partners or beta readers?
I do have beta readers. I also use multiple editors, so I get a very well rounded look at a story.

What book are you reading now?
Right now nothing. But I finished up Money Shoot by SD Hildreth last night, and it was brilliant!

How did you start your writing career?
My thirtieth birthday came into the picture, and I realized I was ready to try for my dreams. I’ve always written, and I had notebooks upon notebooks of stories saved up. But I never had the nerve to put it out there, and see what a professional thought. With the encouragement of my husband, and thoughts of my first child in mind, I took the risk.

My next release is an action packed, sexy story that features a Rock Star, a biker, and another woman. I really wanted to push myself, and represent a different type of relationship/love.

It will be one of many stories in the Rock My World Anthology releasing Dec 7th.

Rock singer Karma Good is looking to make a comeback after a battle with cocaine addiction and a long stint in rehab. Rebuilding her once prosperous career proves to be harder than she anticipated when a late night recording session turns bloody. After witnessing the murder of her crew, she narrowly escapes with her life and runs to the first person she can find for help.
After months working on a situation for a club up north, nomad Arsen Smarts is ready for a good time. He’s on his way to the clubhouse to party when trouble throws itself into his path. The steely determination in the girl’s brown eyes earns his respect. Moved, he decides to help her. But he’ll have to win the club’s approval first.
Add the sexy blonde, Chase, to the mix and who knows what will happen
