I write stories I like to read, with authentic characters and realistic themes. From laugh-out-loud romantic comedy to nail-biting suspense, I've got you covered. Escape with me into books.

In the real world, I'm a happy wife, proud mom, doting nana, and dog owner - again.

The best way to get over writer's block, for me anyway, is to jump into something completely unrelated just to get the juices flowing again. This is how I end up with short stories and teasers.(less)

In Love and War (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 10, 2016 08:33AM
Description: A brave journalist in a war zone. A woman afraid to lose another man she loves to a dangerous job. A chemistry that overrides caution. Ariela has her reasons for avoiding self-sacrificing hero types, but her defenses crumble when she meets Dylan Bond. With his assurance he’s home now, she falls fast and hard, but an unforeseen phone call draws Dylan back into danger and he falls off the radar. His disappearance will test them both. Can their relationship survive if he does?
Caution: Filling is Hot (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 10, 2016 08:11AM
Description: Here’s a recipe to share with friends. Take one prickly demonstration cook, handle carefully. Add one lonely widower, slightly beaten. Mix gently. Fold in two six-year-olds, one at a time to temper the batter and avoid scrambling. Then finally, add the mother with an agenda—but just a dash because she’s spicy. Whip into stiff peaks then spread over an ungreased sheet for best results. Method of cooking can vary, however--Caution: Filling is Hot. Piper Frost is taking a break from men when contractor Chad Thomas crashes her cooking class and turns on the charm. His persistence annoys her but she’s already melting, even without his sneaky mother and conspiring twins in the mix. But just when things are really starting to sizzle, disaster strikes. Can Piper save her recipe for happily ever after or is it already ruined? Grab your oven mitts and find out.
Forest Fires (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 10, 2016 07:55AM
Description: Some sparks catch. Some consume. When a tomboy with spunk and opinions runs up against a mild-mannered biologist, they seem an unlikely pair. Finding common ground isn’t easy until nature gives them a push, pitting them against a force bigger than both of them. Only by working together can they save themselves and perhaps forge something lasting in the bargain.
Friends and Lovers (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: Can the man of Lauren's dreams save her from the man in her nightmares? Wes Dunlop was a hot commodity in high school and the ruin of good reputations, so it was easy to criticize the guy when his sister did it too. Then Lauren McKay actually met her best friend's brother, and she was intrigued. When he came to her rescue, she was doomed. Afraid to admit her change of heart, Lauren hid her secret from both of them. Fifteen years later Wes is back. Now a dedicated cop, he's determined to win Lauren—the girl he can't forget and the only one his sister demanded he leave alone. But he finds that Lauren's life is a lot more complicated than he imagined. Personal tragedy made Lauren a fierce defender of battered women. However, when a dangerous gunman tracks his wife to Lauren's shelter, the protector becomes the target. Her life suddenly in the balance, nothing will stop Wes from doing everything in his power to rescue her.
Accidents Make the Heart Grow Fonder (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: Proof positive that Cupid has a sense of humor. Sabrina Eckhart is losing it. Oasis, the restaurant she manages is getting battered by a trendy newcomer, and with everyone looking to her for ideas, you could say she's under a little pressure. But wait, that's not all. Her evil landlady has given her until the end of the month to vacate her crummy apartment. And her thirtieth birthday is looming, reminding her of the milestones she's missed. No wonder she’s distracted and driving off the rails…down the sidewalk, and nearly running over the man with amazing glutes. Jackson Murphy is an avid jogger, and the local television station’s scrumptious news director -- if he can keep the job. Unfortunately, he has one year to resuscitate their wheezing news department or the owners are going to pull the plug. His hands are already full even without Sabrina dropping into them. The last thing he needs is to be involved with a publicity stunt. The road to love is bumpy. It’ll take all of Cupid's arrows, and a lot of interference from friends, for these two to win the Dating Game.

Quentin Black Mystery Collection by J.C. Andrijeski
“Humans really can be such curiously artistic creatures. They make unquestionably beautiful things when they put their minds to it. It is an interesting paradox of the species, given the small-mindedness of so many, and their propensity for destruction in all its forms.”
