Dr. Lincoln Montgomery is a man who has lost everything but longs to find a connection to someone who he can share his life with, but he fears he will never find the love again that he lost.
The hero of my recently completed novel, The Infertile Heart, has finally found the woman who can complete him, but will their past prevent them from having a future.  Set in Atlanta, GA, this character driven story is a 112,257-word contemporary romance.  Adventuresome and sensual, the book weaves a story of love and loss, lies and truth, and the story of two people learning to love again even though the trials and tribulations they face will stack the cards against them.
An overachiever, Dr. Lincoln Montgomery is a Noble Prize winning billionaire who has spent his life giving others what he could not give to others.  Losing his brother to cystic fibrosis he was driven to find a cure for the gene mutation that took his life.  Even given his success, he could not prevent the death of his wife and unborn child to a drunk driver and spent the last three years mourning their passing and trying to find a way back.  A chance meeting plunges Lincoln back into the dating pool with the one woman he thinks could fertilize his infertile heart.
Dr. Nicole Harris is a physical therapist who has struggled with the decisions she made as a teenager.  Drugged and raped by her date at 14, Nicole ended up pregnant and gave her child up for adoption in order to ensure that she would have a good life.  Finding the perfect family that would keep Nicole abreast of Aubrey’s developments was fear number one priority.  Having given up on love and finding someone who would appreciate her for the woman that she was, Nicole had grown to be.  Feeding her love of golf and football, Nicole meets Dr. Lincoln Montgomery.  Could Lincoln be the one to fertilize her long dormant infertile heart.


What is the hardest part of writing your books?
I think the hardest part of writing my books is finding the time to put fingers to keyboard.  Being a doctor is not always a 9-5 job plus my family time.  I often find myself writing from 10-1:30 at night.  I usually sit in an empty cigar shop and smoke cigars while I write.

What songs are most played on your Ipod?
Broadway tunes; Finding Neverland and Something Rotten; Tchaikovsky; Luke Bryan and Trace Adkins

Do you have critique partners or beta readers?
I utilize more beta readers but my wife does a lot of the critiquing, wait were we talking about my books.

What book are you reading now?
Rite of Passage by Catherine Gayle, this is the 220th book I’ve read since January 1st.

How did you start your writing career?
I was sitting in the middle of Afghanistan and reading books like crazy and decided that I wanted to put the stories in my head on paper.

Tell us about your next release.
My next release A Heart in Remission is the follow-up to The Infertile Heart.  I also have a novella for the Sapphire Falls series by Erin Nichols at the editor.  Currently working on book 3 in my Doctors series called A Heart Reborn.  Book 3 is the story I have been in love with for a while but chronologically it didn’t fit until Book 3.
