She’s running for her life.
He’s the assassin hired to hunt her down.
A dangerous game of manipulation will twist their lives together.

After her sadistic step-brother, Marco, hostilely takes over the business from her father, he makes it his only priority to find Kimber and the information that could ruin him. Kimber has strategized how to stay out of Marco’s clutches, but she didn’t plan on the monster that finds her.
Rye Anderson is ruthless. He kills without regret, collects the paycheck and enjoys a solitary life. The last hassle he wants to deal with is tracking a socialite across the country, a job he accepts as a favor.

My Election 2016 thoughts....


....Just kidding!

But I do think everyone should take a breath, a shot of Vodka and read one of the following books.

1. The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales - Seriously. It's hilariously silly and a great escape from reality.

2. Where the sidewalk ends - If you don't own this one, you really should. These poems will calm your soul. Link to Amazon


If those suggestions fail at helping you feel better, please watch Elf. I dare you to be in a bad mood after watching it! Link to Amazon


You're welcome! :)

Outlining is for crime scenes


Most authors are outliners. They completely plot out a novel on paper before attempting to type the actual words. I am NOT one of those authors. Outlining, for me, is as painful a process as writing a book blurb. I don't enjoy it, nor is it how my brain works. I write in scenes, usually completely out of order, then I work to mesh them together into a story.

The best plot twists for me come at night, usually right before bed. This is equal parts awesome as it is annoying. If I’m beyond exhausted and don't bother to write the idea down, it floats away never to be remembered again. But when laziness fails to win, and the words flow into my bedside notebook, it almost always results in magic. 

My process has been different for all 3 of The Deceptive Lovers Series books.

With Web of Deceit I started in the middle. I know the exact scene I needed to perfect before moving back and forth to create the story. 

With Deadly Omissions I started toward the end. Those characters spoke to me about a certain scene that had to happen in order to set up book 3, Twisted Denial, so I wrote away. 

With Twisted Denial, my current work in progress and book 3 in The Deceptive Lovers Series, I started at the beginning. I knew how Morgan's story would start and felt that needed to be established first.  Then I jumped right into the middle, which is what I’m currently working on.

There is no specific flow that I follow, but I never, ever, ever write a story in chapter order.

Moral of the story: I'm a weido writer with a wacky process.

Michael Myers is my homeboy


October has always been my favorite month of the year. Not only is it my birthday month, but it is also my Moms as well. The temperature starts it’s slow descent here in Florida, and my t-shirts get a much needed break from the sweaty armpit summer heat. With the cooler nights also comes a much needed cheaper AC bill.

These things all help build my love, but what really excites me about the tenth month of the year is Halloween.

No, I don’t mean the trick or treating with the neighborhood kiddos. I mean the movie Halloween.

I am a HUGE scary movie buff and Halloween, Halloween II and Halloween H2O are my absolute all-time favorites. All of the Scream movies and Friday the 13th are a close second, but there’s something about the spine tingling, jump inducing, genius theme music of Halloween that gets my blood pumping like no other.

When AMC plays all day marathons right before the 31st, I feel the need to call in sick to work.


Seriously. My obsession is that strong.

My fiancé also shares my love of the horror genre, and we make Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights an annual event each year. Our favorites haunted houses this time were Halloween II and American Horror Story, but we really loved all 9 that they had.


Moral of the story: Michael Myers is my homeboy.
