During Starfall, magic flooded the Earth and destroyed most technology while humans developed strange new powers. As the scion of a male-dominated clan, Jesse should have risen to become a hero.
One disastrous choice ruins her hopes for the future.
To forget about her life as an assassin, she heads to the dying coasts of Florida. Unfortunately, a chance encounter with a Starfall stone and the Siberian tiger shifter after it thrusts her into the limelight. Escaping Nate’s sights is only the beginning of her woes.
When two dangerous Starfall stones are stolen, it’s up to Jesse to recover them. Should she fail, she’ll only be the first to succumb to the rogue stones’ powers.

How did you start your writing career?
I’ve always loved to write and have done so since I was child but, as a career, it was somewhat accidental. I wrote BLACK & BLUE because it is a story that needed to be heard. It was such a rewarding experience that I want to continue to write as long as I feel I have a story that needs to be told.
My next book, CHANGING CADENCE, will be a sequel to BLACK & BLUE. It will, like BLACK & BLUE, be based on the true story of the struggles and ultimate victory of the NY Sharks and women’s football both on and off the field—very revealing of our personal stories and the storybook ending of the fabled team that is all true.
