About this author

I'm a mom, a wife, a lover and a fighter, a coffee addict, a total smartass, wicked knitster, a Microbiologist, a baker of fine yummy treats, and someone who will fight you to the death for that last Twinkie bag of M&Ms during the zombie-apocalypse. Seriously, my addiction is that important to me. Oh, and I say seriously way too much. Seriously…

Favorite Silly Quote: Cedric didn't die. Carlisle found him and turned him into Edward.
Interesting Fact: I share my birthday with my favorite author, Jane Austen.

I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.Marilyn Monroe

“Chuckling, I cried, “I’m sorry.” I pulled even harder and broke loose from his grip, but I fell backwards onto the floor. He slowly stalked towards me, his smile filled with desire and I pointed my hand at him. “Don’t. Behave!”

“Don’t behave? I accept your terms of parole.”

“That’s not what I meant!” But when my smile broke through, he knew I was lying.”

“I'm not looking for the perfect man. I'm looking for the man whose imperfections I can put up with.”
Devon Ashley

“Shane was just leaving, too.”

“What?” he cried.

I slammed my palms flat against his body. Dear God, there were some nice ridges hiding under that shirt! My hands slid up to his pecks and pushed. “Yeah. You have to go now.”

“Are you for real?” he asked. He was slowly backing his way through the room, but it had nothing to do with the strength of my push…or lack thereof.

“Very. I can’t. I need to sleep on this.”

With a wicked smile, he flattened his hands over mine and sassed, “I’m all for you sleeping on me. Let’s go.”
Devon Ashley, Waiting On My Reason

“Just for the record, the way to a man's heart isn't through his stomach, but through the best fucking blow job ever. You want a man to be your bitch? Perfect your craft.”
Devon Ashley, Falling Upward

“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.”
Edgar Allan Poe

LOL. That one's not mine. :) I'll let you know if I get another shipment of books. Right now all I have is an uncopyedited edition so it's not suitable for a library.


message 10: by Jessica

Jessica Wirth I looked for your series at my library and they don't have it )c: If you want to send me a copy of Ordained, I can get it into circulation at my library (after I read it of course) which networks with several in the Cleveland (OH) area. I've done this for other authors, sometimes I can get the library to feature a book for summer reading or a book club. Based on circulation, they may pick up the rest of the series. Let me know if you're interested. Thanks for the friend request!!!
