SM Koz was born in Michigan, but moved to North Carolina for college and never left.

She enjoys traveling, camping, hiking, photography, reading, spending time with foster kids who call her house home, and learning new things. When she’s not creating online training for pharmaceutical companies (her day job) or writing, Koz can be found at the local community college taking courses on various topics ranging from digital art to HTML to desktop publishing. Next in line are auto mechanics and cake decorating.

Being trained as a veterinarian, it’s not surprising that Koz and her husband were recently told they have a mini-zoo with their two dogs, fish, cockatiels, and foster cats. In the past, they have also had parakeets and a snake. Other than

Hi Brianna,

Thanks so much for your question! I was hoping to publish the second book fairly soon, but my real job got in the way :) I'll get on it ASAP and hopefully have it out by the end of the year. So happy to hear you enjoyed my book and especially Brad. I had a lot of fun writing him. Everyone seems to be into "bad" boys these days, so I wanted to do something the complete opposite. I wasn't sure how he'd be received, so I'm happy to hear you like him!

Hi Rachel,

Great questions! Breaking Free is a stand alone, although a second edition may include an epilogue :) I've had a number of people want to know what happens to the main characters after the last page. It's all in my head, but I haven't put it on paper yet.

And, yes, I'm definitely writing more books! I'm currently outlining my next one. It will also be YA and follow some teens who have had a challenging past. Oh, and a love story. Everything I write has to have a love story. That doesn't really tell you much, does it? Let's just say, I'm drawing from my experience as a foster parent and the male protagonist will have bounced around foster homes for a number of years. Throughout the course of the book, he'll have to make some really difficult decisions while the female protagonist faces her own life-altering situation.

Thanks for your interest!(less)

Quotes by S.M. Koz  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“My hand no longer trembled out of fear, but out of anticipation. I knew I was addicted to the rush it provided, to the release it provided from the emotional mess I had become, but I didn’t care. It wasn’t drugs. It was just a few cuts on my arm.”
S.M. Koz, Breaking Free

“That night I did it. I used a utility knife from our garage. It was amazing. For that brief moment, all the tension, anxiety, stress I put on myself disappeared. It went up in a cloud of smoke and my head was finally clear after months of endless internal battles.”
SM KOZ

“The result was unreal. The most incredible feeling came over me. Weightlessness. Like the vise that engulfed me had evaporated. There was no more tightness. I could breathe freely. My head didn’t hurt. My stomach didn’t hurt. After a few moments, the only thing that hurt was the cut on my arm. I sat there and closed my eyes, reveling in the physical pain that was a hundred times easier to handle than what I had been dealing with.”
SM KOZ
