An actual copy of the paperback. I love the smooth matte finish. I couldn’t be more pleased!


In January, when I’d first received my paperback proofs, I posted the following video on my Facebook fan page. I was apprehensive about filming myself as I opened this monumental package, but I hit record knowing that I could always choose not to share this moment with the world. While I won’t win an award for smoothness of execution, I decided to share this moment with anyone who cares to watch it. I’m proud of the journey I’ve taken to get to this point, and more importantly, I believe in the story I’ve written. I don’t know what lies ahead for me, but with the publication of this book, I’ve lassoed the moon and danced across the stars. Fulfilling my lifelong dream has had a profound effect on my life, and I am happy to share it with others, if only to give them a little encouragement so that they may keep working toward achieving their own goals.


Keep Love and Kindness on Repeat!

In case you were wondering…

What is a New Adult Romance?

Simply put, it is a romance novel set during the time when we are new adults. Between the ages of 18-25, our lives are marked with our first taste of freedom, a willingness to explore and take risks, and for many, the desire to experience and develop intimate relationships. The New Adult genre highlights this transitional period of our lives. As a romance novel, the romance is the driving force of the story.
