Moving Forward

I, for one, am grateful to have the holidays behind me. It just doesn’t seen very festive to bounce from one house to another and the poor ‘kids’ have it worse. Grown and involved, their time is divided even further. I think we all breathed a sigh of relief when it was over.
We have also moved. What a chore! But we’re slowly getting settled into some sense of normalcy.
I have the cover for my new book and I couldn’t be happier about it. I’ve also gotten my first draft back from a beta read and I’m ecstatic about the changes we discussed. It’s amazing how a different perspective can open your eyes to so many possibilities!

Unedited excerpt from my current work in progress-Fair Play

Merrick Kincaid slid the delicate platinum bracelet into the safety of his palm, trying to subdue the sadness spreading through him.
“We need to get going.”
He glanced at his wife’s very pregnant image reflecting in the full length mirror that sat to his left. He returned his gaze to his folded hands, swallowing down the wave of anger that rose inside him.
“I’ll be there in a minute.”
Despite his harsh tone, she leaned her shoulder leaning against the doorframe of their bedroom and continued to pressure him.
“We’re going to be late,” she warned, growing more irritated by his procrastination.
Merrick remained sitting on the side of the bed, his elbows on his knees and his hands clasped in front of him. Waiting wasn’t going to change things, but he still couldn’t bring himself to stand and leave. Never would he have thought his life would come to this.
Everything would change. Hell, everything already had. The roller coaster ride he’d been on for the last nine months was nothing…nothing compared to the momentum his life was gaining as it spiraled out of control.
Mariah was supposed to be induced in less than two hours. She was due at the hospital for prep in thirty minutes. The clock was ticking and any moment now his world was going to explode. Life as he’d known it had come to an end.
Movement caught his attention and he watched the mirror as Mariah retreated into the living area. He pulled the delicate bracelet from the safety of his palm and fingered the engraving.
Bethany. A shadow crossed his heart as he ran his finger over the name. He ached to have her, to pull her body close to his and soothe her cries. How cruel life was to show you what you want by taking it away.


What a great week it’s been! So many exciting things are happening to those around me, it’s hard not to let their joy inspire some happiness in my own life. From new babies to new homes, I’m proud to be included in such special moments! It reminds me of a quote and I paraphrase- the happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they make the best of everything they have. I would give proper credit if I knew who spoke such honest words of wisdom, but I’ll thank them just the same.

Happy Weekend!

This year is flying by. Life has been hectic lately, but what else is there to do but roll on with it!

I’ve decided to try my hand at a different form of erotica. I’m not sure if the finished product will be suspense or thriller, but it’s definitely a fun project. The working title is Thin Line. It focuses on a  young woman who is seeking her birth parents and ends up in the arms of a man who holds the key to her past. Unfortunately, the more she learns about them, the more she discovers about him. Her journey takes her from small time organized crime to corrupt politicians, but comes full circle to the man she loves. It’s a work in progress, even I’ll have to wait and see how it ends :)
