Writing does not always feel like magic. There are days when revisions feel more like climbing a smooth rock wall with no gear. There are other days when my house gets cleaned before I open the doc I’m working on. Days when I’d rather match socks than open my computer. These are not “happy writer” … Continue reading Writerly Peptalk: You are MAGIC Read more of this blog post »

“As a Christian and a feminist, the most important message I can carry and fight for is the sacredness of each human life, and reproductive rights for all women are a crucial part of that. It is a moral necessity that we not be forced to bring children into the world for whom we cannot be responsible and adoring and present. We must not inflict life on children who will be resented; we must not inflict unwanted children on society.”

"Loved loved this book so much! Amazing characterization, gut-punchy story line, and a Byronic hero who matches wits against the best and brightest in Chicago. Five stars must read."

“He’s the need and the sparks and the laughter, and he touches my heart in a way it’s never been touched before. It’s terrifying and so honest it makes me dizzy.”
Jolene Perry, Dizzy

“Because brothers don’t let each other wander in the dark alone”
Jolene Perry, My Heart for Yours

“As much as I should keep my heart in my chest, part of it runs away with him. And maybe that means part of his might be here with me.”
Jolene Perry, Dizzy

“A laugh jumps out of my mouth, surprising me. I can’t even remember the last time I laughed and it puts me on edge. I suddenly want to do the same thing to her. Let her see how it feels to teeter on that cliff.”
Nyrae Dawn, Charade

“Everything’s not always black and white, Princess. Sometimes we have to do shit because there’s not another choice. Maybe you should think about that before you snub your nose at me.”
Nyrae Dawn, Charade

“But when he smiles? Really smiles, it’s perfect. Like toothpaste commercial, boy-next-door beauty that makes it really hard to be pissed at him.”
Nyrae Dawn, Charade

“There’s no talking. No laughing. Nothing but eager hands and sad eyes.”
Nyrae Dawn, Charade

“Colt lies on my bed and pulls me down behind him. I expect him to go for my clothes, but instead he kisses me again.
“Blanket.” I mutter, between kisses.

Stephanie I just wanted to say thank you so much for sending me the extra book because the original was a little late getting to me. It was absolutely unnecessary but I greatly appreciate it. I can not wait to read it. Spill over sounds just as good Manipulation.

Thanks for the add also!


Christina Lyn Thanks for adding me Joleen!


Lucinda Dear Jolene,
I would like to thank you for being my friend here on GoodReads, which is an honor and a delight. It is such a brilliant site where one is able to converse with so many likeminded people including authors and readers, writers and book bloggers. I look forward to future book discussions with you.
Kind Regards
