About this author

I write books. Fun books. Books for you, your best friend, your favorite barista and that girl you knew back in the tenth grade. I like to write about the things I know. Things like being confused. Being afraid. Falling in love.

When I’m not writing, I’m usually chasing after my two daughters, two dogs, two chinchillas, three cats and one lovely husband. You can find all of us in Florida, where it’s salty, sunny and humid. Bad for the hair. Good for the soul.

I love reading, eating pizza and meeting people who make everybody feel like a somebody. I am allergic to monogrammed towels, pretentious wine snobs, haters and the widely accepted practice of growing up.

My fourth book releases on August 12th--woohoo!



This book has been a long time coming. It's been through about a thousand and two versions of itself. I've changed locations, characters, plots. Basically, I wrote ten different books this year. But in the end, none was right until this one.

Here is a sneak peek at the very first chapter.

I think it does -the next book up is my favorite of the series -Dark Desires After Dusk. I actually had read the series out of order and started with Dark Desires After Dusk and love both the hero Cadeon and Holly. In fact I searched for Cadeon-type in each hero for the rest of the series. My favorite three are (in no particular order):

Dark Desires After Dusk
Pleasure of a Dark Prince
Demon from the Dark

I actually re-read book #4,5 and fell in love with the characters on the re-read. I get the slump your talking about but it gets better. :)

The Night Circus is beautiful but in a completely different way. I highly recommend it! And thanks for the interest. My book will be free for download this Saturday *wink, wink* and it's free to borrow from amazon's lending library :) Thanks!!! And Happy Thanksgiving. I hope that you eat a lot of pie. Because, let's face it, nothing is more amazing than pie. Except for books of course...
