Find on Goodreads
Gia Maynard always had a wild streak. She doesn’t mind bending the rules, except when it comes to the rules of her heart. She doesn’t do relationships, instead she devotes her time to her true love....dancing. That is until Jasper Campbell comes along. Handsome, rich and powerful, Gia becomes totally enthralled with him until she finds herself slowly turning into someone she no longer knows.

Cam Hamilton has always been like a big brother to Gia. Now one of the hottest baseball players in the Major League, he is known for his moves on and off the field. But no matter how many women he has in his life, Gia will always be his number one.

When Gia’s heart is broken into pieces, Cam is right there to help her put it back together. When they both give in to their feelings for each other, will they be able to pretend that certain lines were never crossed, and certain feelings were never felt? Will Gia follow the rules that she has lived by for her entire life or is Cam the one worth breaking all of them for?
"Oh, come on, Cam, we can’t all be famous baseball players like you." He shook his head and flashed me that grin again. "So tell me, are they real?"
"What?" he creased his forehead, looking totally confused.
"Willow Asher's boobs."
"Only you, Gia!" He chuckled.
"Well, seriously. I mean, no one can be that beautiful naturally. Please tell me all those photos I see of her in magazines are photo-shopped."
"I don't know, but I think you're a natural beauty."
"Ahh, you’re so sweet, and a very good liar."
"Hey now, I'm not lying. I do."
"Well, thank you, Cam, but compared to her, I'm a rag doll."
He rolled his eyes. "So, how's ‘what's his face’ doing? Are you still seeing him?"
"What's his face? You mean, Jasper?" I giggled. "Yeah I am, and he's doing good. Wish he was here....but whatever."
"Well, where is he?"
"Tokyo." He nodded and looked straight ahead. "He was supposed to have come but was called away on business at the last minute. No biggie. I'm kinda used to it." I let out a deep sigh.
"Well, he must be pretty special, this is a record for you." He smirked.
"Look who's talking? Who is your flavor of the month? Let’s see, is it an exotic super model, or an Oscar winning actress?” I giggled.
"Don't have one this month." He laughed.
I held my hand over my heart. "Wow.....that's a shocker!"
"Keep it up, funny girl."
The light moment that had just passed between us made me realize once again just how different my life was from my ‘put together’ twin sister. "Carrie and Jason, they look so happy." I stared straight ahead.
"Don't sound so down. It's a good thing."
"Oh, I'm not. It's just sometimes, I wonder if I'm normal."
"What do you mean?"
"I can't ever imagine myself settling down and doing the whole marriage and baby thing. I mean, what’s wrong with me? It totally goes against the female DNA, doesn't it?"
"Nah. It's just not what you want out of life right now. Who knows, maybe someday you’ll change your mind."
"Doubt it, but whatever."
"Maybe What's his face -"
"J-a-s-p-e-r!" I laughed.
"Yeah, him." He laughed back. "Maybe he's the one that will make you change your mind."
When the Chips Are Down (#1) – Released March 14, 2015
Melanie Hanson's life didn't go quite the way she had planned. Her cheating ex-husband traded her in for a newer model and she’s in over her head dealing with the drama that comes along with raising her twin teenage daughters.
The last thing she is looking for or needs in her life is a man - or is it?
Ben Wilder is the boy that Melanie loved to hate throughout high school, the boy that all the girls loved and the boy that didn't give Melanie the time of day, unless it was to tease her. When she runs into him once again she realizes...he’s not a boy anymore. Older and wiser, she’s determined not to fall for her secret crush from all those years ago. But sometimes our heart has different plans than our head. Will she finally get her happily ever after with the man she least expected to have it with?
Take a humorous journey with Melanie and her daughters as their lives begin to parallel and they discover that although they may be separated by a generation their struggles are still the same.
Free for a limited time!

    
Two of Hearts (#2) – Released Jan 18, 2016    
Carrie Maynard has come a long way from the awkward teenager who sat in front of the most popular boy in calculus class. She’s now a young, independent woman with a great job, a loving boyfriend, and a close knit family. But something still seems to missing.
Jason Wilder is no longer the cute teenage boy that Carrie crushed on from high school. He is now a hardworking, handsome man and one of Carrie’s very best friends. He is the perfect guy just looking for his perfect girl. Uncertain that he’s actually found her in his girlfriend, Ashley, he goes through the motions, hoping she will fill the void Carrie has left in his heart, ever since the day they met back in high school.
When circumstances change and feelings can no longer be ignored, will Carrie continue to sit on the sidelines, watching someone else live out the future with the boy she loved from so long ago, or will she take the next step with the man that’s always owned her heart?
Sometimes taking a risk for love isn’t always easy.
Sometimes even the strongest of friendships are put to the test.
And….
Sometimes it’s easier to walk away when life takes us down a different path than the one our heart intended.
Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen - or in today's world a touch of the keyboard. I am the author of The Exception To The Rule, An Unplanned Lesson, An Unplanned Life Drowning In Love, A Cry for Hope, A Will To Change, Blind Side of Love, When The Chips Are Down and Easy Silence.

My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? I'm a mom of twin teenage boys, a crazy Border Collie and a cat with an identity crisis! I guess you can say writing is my form of Calgon!

 “I have memories of you that I’ll use to embarrass you in front of your kids.”
“Hey, just remember I’ve got some dirt on you too, so watch what secrets you’re giving away.”
“Yeah, I know! Do you remember that night?” She let out a slight giggle. “When I threw myself at you?”
"Yup, I do. How could I forget? My dad busting in my room the next morning."
We both began to laugh until tears were rolling down her face.
"Yeah, too bad I couldn't laugh about it like that back then. I was scared to death that my mom was gonna kill me!"
"You never did tell me....how much trouble did you get in for that?"
"Not much at all. My mom was surprisingly pretty cool about it. My dad, well.... he eventually got over it."
"That was a classic."
"Do you ever regret not taking me up on the offer of being my first?"
"No." I lied. I regretted it every day. I wanted to be her first, I wanted to be her last, and I wanted to be everything in between. We were so young back then. It would have never lasted, and Carrie and I wouldn't have the strong relationship that we do now if we had taken that step. We both needed time to grow, to experience new things with different people before we made that type of commitment. Now, here we were, older, wiser and both committed to someone else.

I tried my best to ignore him, but I could feel his eyes settling on me. I took a deep breath when he got up and sat next to me. “Well, at least I know your real name now.” I shook my head, still trying to avoid eye contact. “So, how’s your ass doing?”
“What!?” I finally turned my head and looked directly at him.
“From your fall the other day.” I looked away. “Was I really that much of an ass to you during high school that you are still carrying a grudge all these years later?”
“Don’t flatter yourself. It has nothing to do with you.”
“Oh, okay. So, are you bitchy like this to every guy you come in contact with?”
“Yeah, maybe I am! What’s it to you?”
He held his hand up in defense. “Doesn’t matter to me one bit, sweetheart, but you’ve clearly been shafted by a guy a time or two to have an attitude like that. I mean, don’t get me wrong. The bitchy ones are better in bed with all that pent-up aggression.” He smirked and took a sip of his beer.
“Oh, you are such a pig, you know that? You are the same arrogant ‘I’m so in love with myself’ jock you were back in school! Well, reality check. Despite the fact you may have never grown up, most women have. So your good looks, perfect body, and smooth talking will no longer work.”
He chuckled loudly. “What’s so funny?”
“I think you just admitted you thought I was good looking and had a perfect body.”
“No. That’s not what –” He had me feeling so flustered. “I meant MEN, in general!”
“Whatever you say, princess.”
“My name is Melanie! Oh, wait. Maybe you’ll remember Smellanie better!”
His grin widened. “Ahhhh, now I remember you! You were that cute little blonde girl who used to sit in front of me in French class. You were the little goody two-shoes who always knew exactly how to respond in perfect French to the teacher, while the rest of us struggled to maintain a D average. You know you really didn’t smell, right? That was just a nickname for you.”
“I know I never smelled, thank you very much!”
“Well, Smellanie, can I say that you are just as cute now as you were back then?”
“No, you may not!”

Happy Belated New Year

Happy New Year.....a week late! Where in the world did 2015 go?

When I looked back at my writing goals that I had marked out last December for 2015, I kind of veered off path. My original plan was to release all 3 books in the Three of a Kind series in 2015. Well, I released 1 (When the Chips Are Down). It was around February of last year that my writing  plan started to change. I was about halfway done with book 2 of the series and was battling with writer's block, but I tried working through it as best as I could. Then one night, I was watching Romeo & Juliet (the 1960's version.....the best one there is in my opinion) and the beginning stages of a brand new story popped into my head. I still continued on writing book 2 as the ideas for this new book became stronger and stronger with each passing day. Then finally one day, it all came together. So, I took a break from book 2 of the series and started to type out the thoughts for this new book that were going through my mind. Five weeks later (yes, only 5 weeks! That's how loud these characters were talking to me) Easy Silence was written. I say that I got the idea for Easy Silence from watching Romeo & Juliet because Sam and Jax relationship was somewhat similar: Both young, both star crossed lovers, and the ending....that bittersweet ending that I was so terrified to write for fear of being torn up in reviews....but if it worked for Shakespeare...so it would certainly work for little old me, right? (insert laughter here).

I am HAPPY to report that it did work for me too! The messages that I received from readers after reading Easy Silence was overwhelming. To know that I was able to evoke so much emotion in people with just my words was the biggest reward of this writing journey thus far.Then to see my book on so many bloggers lists of Favorite Reads of 2015 was the icing on the cake! It's hard to believe that these characters may never have been created if I didn't happen to be flicking through the channels and come across Romeo & Juliet that night. So, thank you Mr. Shakespeare!

Now back to The Three of a Kind series.....After I got Jax and Sam completely out of my head, I went back full force into Carrie & Jason and moved right on to Gia and Cam. Just a month month shy of meeting my 2015 writing goal....books 2 & 3 will be released within in 5 days of each other.

2015 taught me there is no particular plan to follow when writing.....you write what's speaking to you when it's speaking and most importantly....YOU ALWAYS FOLLOW YOUR HEART when it comes to your story!

Happy 2016 everyone!!
