Juliet Chronicles Book One


Juliet Chronicles Book One

My life was just fine.
My days were spent working, hanging with my best friend and trying not to eat too many carbs.
Then I began getting flowers with unsigned notes and when I sensed someone watching me, my life no longer felt…fine.

You might know me as the girl next door but that isn’t really who I am.
They call me
Working Girl
But my clients call me

*This is a twelve book series filled with adult themes, sexual situations, and language. 
**WARNING: Because it’s an ongoing series most of the books will end on some kind of cliffhanger and should be read in order. 

Juliet Chronicles Book Two Coming November 7, 2017

Juliet will be here soon!

I can't even begin to tell you how terrified...I mean, excited I am to introduce Juliet to the world. I've been working on her story for longer than I can remember. It took nearly a year just to outline her story which will be spread out to twelve books.
I said twelve.
That number overwhelms me too.
But each book will be around 35k words.
Juliet Chronicles Book One is releasing in October
Book two will release in November.
I'm finishing up book three which will release January 2018 IF my editor can squeeze it into her schedule.
Since Juliet's story takes a lot out of me, I plan to release the rest of the series every other month or every two months.
I want to be sure to avoid burnout so I'm making sure to schedule time to work on other stories. 

In case the teaser didn't give it away, this book is for 18+ due to adult themes, sexual situations and language.

Sorry, Mom.
I'll be sure to write you something else you can read. 

Juliet Chronicles Book One cover is coming soon along with the official blurb, and preorder links! EEEEK

Safe Love

A new release!!!!

Safe Love is an Always novella. You do not need to read the other books in the series. It is a complete stand alone love story.
Seth and Benny were minor characters in Love Me.

After spending years in foster care, Seth's life was anything but easy. He spent his days hiding behind a hoodie and a sketchpad counting down the days until he aged out of the system.  With ten days left until he turned eighteen he never expected to make friends with the cute girl next door.

Seth thought of Benny every single day. She was the reason he worked so hard to make his life better so one day he could deserve her. But would she forgive him for leaving three years ago without saying a word?

He was about to find out because the girl he used to know was now a gorgeous woman and she was standing right in front of him.

Buy here:

Love, Ryan has a new cover!  
My daughters were kind enough to help me make a new cover.  Having so many kids is finally paying off. ha ha 

In the 90’s I fell in love with my best friend and neighbor Anna May. Growing up together, I never saw her as anything more than my friend until one night and one dance. At seventeen, I was forced to do what I had never imagined. I had to choose between losing her to another guy or do everything I could to make her mine even if it meant ruining our friendship.

To celebrate Love, Ryan will be free on Amazon March 5th and 6th. If you haven't checked out yet, here's your chance.

OMG it's February?

I feel like I should be yelling "I'm baaaaaack!" but I've never really been gone. I've just been really really quiet.

So for anyone interested here's an update:

After taking a few months off of writing to deal with family life and mental health stuff, I'm back to writing everyday and so excited about this coming year. A break was exactly what I needed and I feel better than I have in a long time.

Currently, all my titles except for Love You, Always and Until Now are on Kindle Unlimited but will be back on all sites April 11th ish.

Within the next few weeks I'll be releasing Safe Love a 26k word novella for the Always series on all sites. You don't have to read any of the other books to read this one. It's a sweet story about Benny and Seth from Love Me. There are three more novellas and one more novel for the Always series that I hope to release this year.

My goal is to also finish off the Until series with Until Forever (Phillip and Jenny's story) but I also have several shorts that I've been working on about all the main characters from all the books that will be free on this blog.  I'm almost finished with the first one which is about Bridget's father. As a warning it is really sad.

Ummm. I think that's it for now!  Come say hi to me on my Facebook page.

Remember that one time?

Remember that one time I said a particular book would be released at a certain time then I said it wasn't. Well, I'm saying it again.

Nearly a month ago, I woke up from my year long anxiety ridden daze, looked in the mirror and barely recognized myself. I’ve had to come to terms with the fact that I am a mess. Inside and out.
In the past year, I continually put myself last , and it shows. I put on 25 lbs and aged years. I feel it in my body and see it in my face.  I won't go into details because it's so much. So. Much.  But it did involve one of my kids and mental illness. 
For a year I held onto him with everything I had to keep him from drowning while sacrificing myself. I survived off of fear, worry, caffeine and lots and lots of junk food.

That was until a few weeks ago. I hit my wall. I realized that I couldn't keep going like this. My child still needs me more than ever, but I can't hold him up when I'm drowning. I had to make life changes, take time to exercise and do some self-care but it wasn't just in my personal life. It affected my writing life. I pushed myself to write even when my heart wasn’t in it. I filled my days with shoulds. As a family, we made sacrifices so I could quit my job and write full time, so I carried this heavy weight of responsibility and every day I woke up feeling the weight of all my shoulds on my shoulders. So I wrote, but I lost that passion I had when I first began writing. Hitting that wall, I realized that this needed to change too. I wanted to love writing again, and in the past few weeks I have.

I write every day more than I have this past year, but I have no idea when anything will be published. I have no idea what books will be finished next and I have no idea when I’ll finish writing the last books for the Until Series and the Always series. Right now, I know those series won’t be finished any time soon. Those characters aren’t talking to me. But I am writing in fact I have more story ideas than time.

This week, I've been writing a short story about Bridget's father from Until Now that I'll be posting on here once it's finished.  I'm also half way done with a novella about Benny and Seth from Love Me. If all goes well, it'll be out in November but I won't make any promises.
