I am an active dreamer and find writing to be the best way to use my creativity. Needing to satisfy both sides of my brain, I have become a cross-genre author of contemporary, romantic comedy, fantasy, science fiction, and paranormal romances.

I feel blessed that my books appear on bestseller lists for humor, romantic comedy, space opera, and more. I crave laughter from all my readers and focus my attention on making that happen as often as possible.

I love to hear from anyone who has read my books. Each reader is a hero or heroine to me. I am inspired by you.

When I bring it back, it will be because I was able to start writing on them again. (less)

Brandi: Nano Wolves 2 (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Jun 10, 2015 05:49AM
Description: He says they’re mates. She says they’re done. Agent Brandi Jenkins likes being a werewolf. It’s great to be stronger, smarter, and more sexual. It’s also great being part of family group for the first time in her solitary life. As the Nano Wolves beta, she must protect the other women in her tiny pack. She can't stop until she learns the truth about who funded the crazy scientist who made them. Being a living science experiment is not easy, and it’s starting to shift her priorities. Sometimes the new awareness sucks too, like learning her former handler didn’t rescue her from Crazy Crane on purpose. Before she can leave her old job though, a new government apprehension group decides to blackmail her into working for them. She wants to kill a few backstabbers and leave for good, but she can’t. She has no choice except to take the freaking job. It’s the only way to save herself and her pack mates from becoming government pets. What she can’t do though is ever forgive Gareth Longfeather. The deceptive, lying, manipulative Gray Wolf beta had almost convinced her he was a man she could love and trust. Gareth says they’re mates. She says they’re done.
Ariel: Nano Wolves 1 (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Jun 10, 2015 05:45AM
Description: Being a living experiment wasn’t part of the scientific career she’d planned for herself. Despite her sharp scientific mind and her degree in bio-molecular genetics, Dr. Ariel Jones hasn’t figured out how her life changed so much in a single day. Before she can blink and ask about what is going on, she is injected with a billion nanos and some very potent wolf blood. Now she can suddenly turn into a giant white wolf with the bloodlust of a starving animal. And she’s an alpha…or so she is told by the even larger, very male, black wolf who was used to create her. Hallucination? She wishes. Whether human or wolf, Reed talks in her head and tells her how to handle things…or rather how to kill them…starting with the men who hold them all captive. Too bad he can’t tell her how to put her life back like it was. Admittedly, there are perks to being a werewolf, such as meeting sexy werewolf guys like Matthew Gray Wolf. Science labs aren't overrun with sexy men in white coats. She also doesn’t mind learning about a side of herself she never knew existed. It's great changing into a real wolf whenever she wants, but being a living experiment wasn’t part of the scientific career she’d planned for herself. Neither was falling for the local werewolf alpha, but what else is a newbie werewolf caught in her burning time going to do?
Peyton 313 (Book 1 of Cyborgs: Mankind Redefined) (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:38PM
Description: Worst epic fail of her scientific career? Falling for a cyborg she helped create. Kyra Winters never meant for her cyber science discoveries to be used for evil, but that’s exactly what happened. Now returning Peyton 313’s humanity is the last chance she’ll ever have to atone. She can’t get back the lost decade, but she can change the present by restoring the cyborg who was once Marine Captain Peyton Elliot. Certainly her grand plan for rectifying her mistakes didn’t include madly kissing the confused, passionate Marine when he begged her to. The same scientific mind that constructed the cyborg creator code now warned her not to let Peyton’s tempting offers of heaven cloud her rational decision making. Yet it’s difficult to resist the cyborg she’s restoring when he’s also the most intriguing man she’s ever known.
Saving Santa (Sample) (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:38PM
Description: Her Marine training hadn’t quite prepared her for saving St. Nick. Like all bad deeds, her nickname for David North had finally come back to bite her on the butt. The too nice man she admired was determined to play Santa for the local Christmas parade while some shooting stalker was out there after him. Megan Lynx had promised her brother to guard his best friend, but who was going to guard her from a childhood crush that had obviously not gone away? For a geek, the man could nearly kiss the hard-ass Marine right out of her. Only she couldn’t let him. At least not until she’d managed to save Santa.
Marcus 582 (Book 3 of Cyborgs: Mankind Redefined (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:38PM
Description: She never wanted to be a cyborg and refuses to love one. Restored Cyber Soldier, Marcus 582, thinks the chances of dating partial cyborg, Rachel 235, are slim. His cyborg mind can’t calculate his chances with any accuracy, but his human side can feel Rachel's resistance to his every romantic overture. Marcus understands how Rachel feels. After all, her conversion wasn’t voluntary like his was. She wants a life without any cyborgs in it, including herself. Too bad he can’t give it to her. He’s lost all he can stand to lose in his life. He refuses to lose Rachel too.
