Cover Reveal - Forever Changed, #4 in the Mystic Wolves Series.


I have HUGE news!! *insert drum roll* I am SUPER excited about this ... the COVER REVEAL for book #4 in the Mystic Wolves series, FOREVER CHANGED!! Isn't it gorgeous?? Regina Wamba from MaeIDesign & Photography designed it.

Tentative blurb:

Waking up after an amazing night with her new husband and mate, nothing could've prepared Darcy for the epic bombshell Devlin dropped—explaining her heritage and revealing truths that completely blow her mind. When all she wants is to settle into marital bliss and Pack life, Darcy's world is once again thrown into turmoil, forced to face a challenge that may very well break her and Mason.

Not one to sit back and watch the one he loves more than life itself in danger, Mason immediately formulates a plan of action—taking a small group of trusted friends across the United States in the hot pursuit of answers. Time is running out, though. With each attempt to control Darcy's wild magic thwarted, and the dark presence of evil dogging their every move, they will be left with no other choice but to make a stand—fight or risk losing everything they cherish most.

Decisions will be made. Love will be pushed to the breaking point. Mason and Darcy face their greatest challenge to date, one that will leave them ... FOREVER CHANGED?

Expected release date: By the end of 2013

Cover Reveal: Jagged Edges



I'm currently working on a few projects and here is one of them ... Jagged Edges. This is a New Adult contemporary romance and one I'm VERY excited about! 

Tentative Blurb: 

They say that living is easy, but for Sydney London, each breath she takes feels like agony. Weighed down by a grief that all but shattered her young heart, her father sends her to live with his sister, hoping a different environment will re-ignite her enthusiasm for life.

Knowing she needs to, Sydney struggles with letting go of the past, the painful scars slow to fade. When Adam Stone approaches with his confident smile and easy going personality, she takes one look at him and shrinks away. Everything about him screams danger--from his messy hair, ripped jeans, and lip ring. He wants friendship, but his eyes tell Sydney he wants something more, something she can't ... won't ever give another person again.

The heart does interesting things when we least expect it, softening when all we want is to keep ourselves protected. Can Sydney keep Adam at arm's length? Or will he get close enough to see all her jagged edges?

Expected release date: the end of 2013.

Loving Liberty Author Note.

Loving Liberty has been out for two weeks now and the feedback I've been receiving has me grinning BIG! This story was such an important and special one for me to write--pieces of my heart woven amongst the words.

For those who haven't read it yet, or didn't see the very end, I included an Author's Notes where I explained the journey of Loving Liberty--my experiences with bullies. I thought I'd share it with everyone today and offer some insight into why Liberty is the way she is. Whether you've dealt personally with controlling influences or not, it's a story that triggers compassion. Oh that we could all have the perfect lives we long for. Unfortunately, we're not all so lucky, BUT its about overcoming those challenges that make us stronger ... becoming SURVIVORS, victims no more.

I hope you enjoy the following. Thanks for all your support!


Loving Liberty is unlike any other book I’ve written.
When I first started, there was definitely a theme I wanted the story to capture—finding love, and yourself, despite opposition. What I didn’t anticipate, however, was how deeply Liberty’s journey would touch my heart, or how much of my own life would end up on these pages.

Unlike Liberty, my opposition didn’t come from my parents or family. I was blessed to grow up surrounded by love, encouragement, and the freedom I needed to succeed. Even now, my parents are my biggest cheerleaders, never missing an opportunity to remind me how proud they are.

No, my opposition came in the form of bullies.

I’m a survivor of bullying. I know the frustration, pain, and confusion of being a people pleaser; of watching everything I said and did, because I never knew when the next attack would come. I grew up being hyper-vigilant of my surroundings. I learned to never excel at anything that would bring attention, and always kept to the shadows. It was safer that way—it hurt less.

I had things stolen and broken, I was ordered about and told what and when to do things, I ate my lunch in the bathroom, and was ridiculed, hit, and received death threats. I endured years and years of living under the control of bullies. I didn’t graduate from high school; choosing, instead, to walk away rather than continue enduring the pain. Even then, the bullies followed. They attacked my self-esteem, making me believe that I was good for nothing—a simple play toy for cruel people.

Why am I sharing this? Because, like Liberty, there came a point where I decided that enough was enough. For those living in the shadows, standing up to others will always be a risk, but it’s a necessary one. The moment it becomes more uncomfortable to remain silent and compliant, than to make a change, is the time to step out in courage and create your own future.

No one likes to be controlled. I didn’t like giving my power to others, who didn’t deserve it. I wanted more from my life than cowering, scared, waiting to be hurt. I had dreams to achieve. We all do. It’s sad, though, when we allow ourselves to believe we are something less because we were never given the opportunity to see how truly magnificent we are.

For whatever reason, we all have things that hold us back—fear, doubt, insecurities, and controlling influences. We may lack the support needed to live out our dreams, or there may be people pulling us down. Sometimes, it’s our own lack of belief in ourselves that holds us back—we don’t believe we deserve happiness or realize that the risks are worth taking. We focus on failing, the idea of success a mere pipedream that is out of reach.

 So, we settle for being less than who we are. We allow others to determine our identity and our ability. We forget we are all destined for great things.

I hope the message you take away from Loving Liberty is to always be yourself. Discover those things that bring you bliss and do whatever it takes to create your own happiness. Life is too short to live it pleasing others while ignoring your own needs. Don’t let someone else control your future—you decide, your rules.

It’s not easy.  But I tell you, just like Oliver told Liberty, be brave.

Mystic Wolves Update.



Happy Friday, everyone! I answer this question a lot, sometimes multiple times a day, so here's an announcement about Forever Changed, 4th book in the Mystic Wolves series.

Many have asked why they can't find Forever Changed on Amazon or B&N. I'm still currently working on the story, and plan on releasing it at the end of this year. If it can be done sooner, it will, but as of today, there is no official release date. Once the story is completed and in the hands of my editor, I'll make that announcement.

As for the cover of Forever Changed ... make sure you join the anniversary event this Saturday. All kinds of surprises happening then!

I'm so excited for this book! I'm excited for all upcoming projects. Thank you for all your support and remember ... it's all about the SWOON! MUAH!

The Butterfly.


I believe everything happens for a reason. That things aren't always just random events, but can work together to bring hope and meaning. I love butterflies. I love what they represent and the reminder that transformations are possible--that we can be beautiful and fly. That through struggle, no matter how painful, we have potential for greatness. It's not a matter of "if" but "when'.


I was researching one of my next writing projects and was amazed to discover that when I chose the butterfly to be my totem, it had more meaning than I could've ever imagined. Whatever story I work on, I put pieces of me into it. (those who've read the author note in Loving Liberty understand). I'm just so excited to see how everything comes together. Once again, I know I'm on the right path ♥ 

Just wanted to share! *grins*
