I'm most known for my A Rebels Havoc series, specifically Brix. People love that asshole!
Do you have any free books?
If you're not familiar with the Kindle Unlimited program with Amazon, it's like a Netflix for books. You pay a monthly fee and read as many books as you'd like available through their catalog, although you can only have twenty books at once.
You can try Kindle Unlimited for FREE for a limited time here.

Please keep in mind, this does not guarantee you'll receive an ARC. It's solely for notifying you of when the opportunity to sign up is available and reduces the amount of forms you'll fill out.
Openings to join my ARC team are limited. I'll be sure to share on social media, in the Hype Team communication, and my newsletter when it's open.

What type of stories do you write?
I write new adult romance with a variety of tropes and sub-genres. I enjoy writing college age romance, forbidden tropes, with lots of heat and banter.
How long have you been writing?
I published my first book, Where I Found You, in May 2017.
How many books do you have published?
As of February 2023, I have written and published sixteen books.
Do you have any bonus content?
Yes. I love writing bonus content - specifically bonus epilogues and sometimes for various holidays. You can find all of them on my Bonus Scenes page.
How do you come up with your story ideas?
Oh boy. That's a loaded question. Sometimes it's from a song or even a lyric, other times it's a random thought when watching TV or listening to people in life. My mind is always going a hundred miles per hour, so any time I stumble on something that I think would make an interesting storyline I'll email it to myself and add it to a running word doc of ideas.
What made you decide to write your first book?
I've always been into writing growing up. I started out writing poetry and I was a voracious reader. As I got older, I started reading romance. It started with paranormal romance and then I ventured into contemporary romance. I was devouring anything and everything I could get my hands on.
It was on my bucket list to write a book, and one day I just went for it.
Did you always want to be an author?
Not always. It wasn't until I started reading romance after my youngest son was born that I started thinking about it. Although it wasn't until six years later before I decided to stop dreaming and do it!
Are any of your stories based on real events?
Some of them are, yes.
What is your advice to anyone who wants to write a book?
Do it. Sit down and write the book.
Take it from me though... it's a lot easier to write the book when you think about how you'll market it first. Study what other books are popular, figure out what tropes you're writing in, and read other books in the same genre. There are several groups on Facebook that are great for networking and learning from others, Alessandra Torre's Inkers and 20Booksto50K being my top recommendations.
Why is Sacrifice unpublished and no longer available in the Salvation Society world?
Simply put, Sacrifice was never a story that's sold well for me. I made the decision to revise it and add it as the fifth book in the A Heart's Compass world with the hopes readers would find it after finding it was about Corbin, Callum and Ellie's son in Where I Found You and Now That I Found You.
Will you ever expand the A Heart's Compass series? Will Kinsley and Wes ever get a story?
At this time, I do not plan to return to the A Heart's Compass series. One of the hard parts about writing is making difficult business decisions. Sadly, this series books hasn't sold very well for me. I've made the decision to leave the series where it stands and focus on other projects.
I'm not saying never. I just don't have any plans at this time.
