I'm so glad that you're enjoying my books. I started seriously pursuing writing as a career when I turned 40. It's fairly common for writers to begin later in life, but I expect the average is closer to 30 for most romance authors. I've always been an avid reader and only dabbled in writing for fun until my husband encouraged me to make a serious attempt to pursue my dream.(less)

I hope that you enjoyed the first book in the series, MISSING IN THE GLADES. Honestly, I hadn't considered giving either Derek or Garrett a book. I'll have to think on that. But, no, neither of them gets their own book in this particular series. Thanks for letting me know that you liked those characters enough to want books about them! That's really cool.(less)

“We’re not perfect. We’re just perfect for each other.”
Lena Diaz, Take the Key and Lock Her Up

“She ran to the bathroom and just managed to shove the door shut and drop to her knees in front of the toilet before Jack Daniel’s made an encore appearance.”
Lena Diaz, Take the Key and Lock Her Up

“She didn’t want Logan Richard’s pity and she sure as hell didn’t deserve his concern. Because, in spite of his belief that she was as much a victim as Dana was, he was wrong. He didn’t know what she’d done.”
