I've heard from so many people that they wish they could write a book; they have a few ideas in their head; it's something they've always dreamed of...you never know what will happen unless you try. The hardest part is coming up with an idea and having the motivation to sit down and begin that first sentence. Don't worry about what other people will think. Don't worry about what other people will say. Write for YOU and you alone. Write because you HAVE to. Write because you can't think of doing anything else. I have a tattoo on my arm with one of my favorite quotes from Sylvia Plath - "I write only because there is a voice within me that will not be still." If your head is full of voices and stories, share them!(less)

If you haven't heard the news, I wrote a brand spankin' new erotic romantic suspense called "Burned". It released a few days early because I couldn't wait any longer to share it with you! The reviews are flying in and they are AMAZING!

“And let’s face it people, no one is ever honest with you about child birth. Not even your mother.       “It’s a pain you forget all about once you have that sweet little baby in your arms.”     Bullshit.   I CALL BULLSHIT.   Any friend, cousin, or nosey-ass stranger in the grocery store that tells you it’s not that bad is a lying sack of shit.   Your vagina is roughly the size of the girth of a penis.   It has to stretch and open andturn into a giant bat cave so the life-sucking human you’ve been growing for nine months can angrily claw its way out.   Who in their right mind would do that willingly?   You’re just walking along one day and think to yourself, “You know, I think it’s time I turn my vagina into an Arby’s Beef and Cheddar (minus the cheddar) and saddle myself down for a minimum of eighteen years to someone who will suck the soul and the will to live right out of my body so I’m a shell of the person I used to be and can’t get laid even if I pay for it.”

“Right when my fingers started to slip inside my underwear, I opened my eyes and screamed.     "HOLY SHIT!"     My son stood there next to the bed just staring at me. Seriously, two inches from my face just staring at me like those creepy twins in "The Shining." I waited for him to start saying, "Come play with us" in their freaky twin voices while I tried not to have a heart attack.     "Gavin, seriously. You can't just stand here and stare at mommy. It's weird," I grumbled as I put my hand to my aching head and tried to calm my pounding heart.       Sweet Jesus, who kicked me in the head and shit in my mouth last night?     "You said a bad word, Mommy,”

Lesley Madden Tara, You have to be the funniest person ever.... I don't know how you get through writting these books with out dying of laughter.... I can't stop laughing... that Drew and Jenny crack me up and then you have Liz and Claire that go at each other and it almost makes me pee in my pants... I'm on chapter 18 of Troubles and Treats and I can't stop laughing... I love when Jenny is drunk at that concert and she is yelling Vagina.... or when she is begging Liz to look at her Vagina and Liz tells her she is going to punch her in the neck (or somewhere)... Love it.... Keep up the wonderful writting.
