Contemporary Romance
Date Published: June 21, 2016

Wishing for death while living through hell, Gabriella is rescued off the rocks of a Scottish loch at the lowest moment of her life by the hot, humorous Edward and the sexy, staid Liam. The two men nurse the despondent woman back to health while teaching her how to pick up the pieces of her life. Both are captivated by her and vie for her attention.
Friendships are formed and secrets revealed. One man will become her lover, while the other becomes her best friend. Together, they have a past they cannot change, a present they must live through, and a future yet to be discovered. However, every time things appear to settle down for the trio, fate deals another blow, testing their trust and faith in each other and the love they have created.
Gabriella discovers the beauty of Scotland and life anew as she learns that trust is a two-way street that can either strengthen bonds or destroy relationships. Will she accept all that she learns or continue to believe she is betraying the memories she ran from?


1)    What is the hardest thing about writing your books?
The hardest thing about writing my books is separating my writing time and my home life. I become completely obsessed with writing about my characters that I loose hours on hours being with them. My sleep becomes interrupted often because my character seep  into my dreams. I don’t watch TV, and when I relax I like to read. I read about three books a week. I’ve learned to set boundaries and now only write at my office but the characters tend to follow me around. Many times I think I could be writing instead of reading.
2) What songs are most played on your iPod?
Music is very important to me but not genres. I like songs that have a story attached to them or could be made into a story. I usually like two to three songs from many different artists. Right now my most favourite songs are Blue October’s Home, Disturbed’s Sound of Silence, Barbra Streisand and Bryan Adams’s I Finally Found Someone. I make a playlist for each book and future book and I listen to them nonstop.
3) Do you have a critique partners or beta readers.
Yes I do have a critique partner. Diane Zparkki is also a writer and we exchanged each others chapters. We give each other suggestions and feedback, what we like about the chapter and what doesn’t work for us. I love her and couldn’t write a book without her. She rocks my world!
4) What book are you reading now.
Last night I finished book four Rapturous (The Quantum Series) by M.S. Force. I am a total sucker for Happily Ever After.

5) How did you start your writing career?
I have always wanted to write, but raising four sons and my career working with special needs teenagers came first. When my kids grew up and didn’t need me anymore I ended up with so much time on my hands. My critique partner and I were out for a drink and talking about the books we were reading. I confessed to starting to write a book and found out she was doing the same. We started to meet every Saturday and pushed each other through the process. Now I am on a year sabbatical to write the rest of my series. 
6) Tell us about your next release.
My next release is called Thicker Then Blood and it will be released this spring. Dakota is in a life threatening car accident that nearly kills her. She learns the man who recused her and kept her alive was her ex-boyfriend Caden. Two years ago he broke her heart and betrayed her in the worst way. She still loves Caden and hasn’t been able to move on. Someone has lied to her but was it Caden? She finds herself in a no win situation. Sometimes you get hurt by those you love the most.  And really isn’t that just life!
