Thank you!

Good Afternoon Friends and welcome. Today I am presenting a few teasers for my book, Awakened by Fate. I want to thank everyone who has been part of this. I am grateful for all my readers and for all of the reviews you left. Thank you!

I want to thank Suzie Carr for the podbean interview I did with her recently. Check it out here. Let me know your thoughts.

The main character of this novel is Jackie, a young attractive woman. She is married but has her husband’s approval to pursue her inclination for being with women as long as he remains the only man in her life. After a car accident, Jackie suffers a concussion that causes her something impossible to understand and accept, at first. Her world is turned upside down and only when she tries finding out more about what had happened she is starting to understand. Initially, Jackie’s reaction is normal as everything is strange and hard to accept. In a course of events and with the help of her friends she makes slow steps forward. A new woman starts being part of her life that plays the role of a lover and offers her a tremendous support. Looking at the name of the book it was normal to expect an awakening.

Even though this book has a paranormal element I loved that the author created real-life characters and happenings. Jackie was a heavy drinker and she didn’t acknowledge her problem, despite her husband’s comments and certain events. Her husband was not perfect either, he had his alcohol and gambling issues and didn’t seem to be the best partner. Jackie hasn’t been in the past very close to her family but during her transformation, she managed to solve this issue. With her sister’s big help she started her alcohol-free period. I didn’t have to resonate fully with the main character to let myself withdrawn in the story and I loved it. I followed carefully her journey and I found myself inspired by the way she was developing her spiritual side. The more she evolved in that area the more she was making the other parts of her life right.

I enjoyed everything related to spirituality, Reiki, meditation, grounding exercises that inspired me to dig further in this area. I liked the ending too, which answered some questions and left me feeling eager to know what is going to be next. I loved the Lawler’s writing style. I felt it sincere and very comforting and I am looking forward to reading other works by this author.

Type of reader: Although this novel falls under lesbian paranormal fiction I recommend it to a wider audience with love for a strong female lead facing personal transformation.

My favorite quotes from this book:

“As she lay there, she thought about her day. It had been a very spiritual experience. There were times that she’d felt at one with the trees, and she understood their language.”

“Let go and open up and allow the good things to manifest.”

“If you want change, then you need to be that change.”

Awakened by Fate Excerpt:

*

When the car came to a stop, Jackie was jolted back to reality. The valet opened the door just as a stunning brunette walked by. Her red-sequined, strapless dress barely covered her cleavage. She wore a delicate necklace decorated with the name ‘Holly’ in gold lettering.

Holly, Hmmm.

She turned her head towards Jackie and gave her a once-over. Jackie, not knowing how to react, looked towards the ground.

Kyle took her hand and they made their way to the party, already underway.

Greg was greeting guests at the front door. Upon seeing Kyle and Jackie, he said, “Welcome, I’m glad you’re here. Make yourselves at home. The bar is out back.”

“Thank you,” Jackie answered.

Kyle and Greg stayed at the entrance chatting.

What do they have to talk about at a party? It must be work or golf…guy talk. How rude.

She set off alone to the back of the house. She could not help but notice how elegantly Greg’s family lived. Their home was beautiful. Passing through French doors, she went outside where Chinese lanterns illuminated the large patio. Near the pool, a buffet table with hors d’oeuvres was decoratively arranged. To the left, was what she had come outside for: the bar.

Staring at the bartender, she said under her breath, “Hmm. A cute butch serving alcohol. Perfect!”

20150912_220538000_iOS
Mystical Jackie

Jackie walked up to the bartender and asked flirtatiously, “So, what would you recommend for a gal who doesn’t know anyone here?”

“I’ll bet you’d love a Long Island Iced Tea.” In a lower voice, she added, “They are my specialty.”

“I’d love that.”

“My name’s Trish. And if you need someone to talk to, you can always find me here. That’s what bartenders are for.” She began to make Jackie’s drink.

Jackie could not help but notice the fox medallion hanging around Trish’s neck.

How interesting, as Jackie had always been drawn to foxes.

Thanking her for her drink, she turned and walked over to the buffet and got herself a small plate of crudités. She headed towards an empty chair near the edge of the pool. She picked at her food and guzzled her drink as she watched the other guests mingle. Already she was wishing the night was over. Clouds were moving in with the dark skies.

Please rain so I can go home.

The buzz from her first drink was kicking in. She got up to get another.

She thought she heard her name being called in the distance. Turning her head, she gasped. About twenty feet in front of her was Holly, her temptress.

Did I just hear that? Wishful thinking or did she ask about me? How else could she know my name?

Cover PhotoEarly in the morning on Kauai

 

She approached Jackie, and with a seductive look, she winked and whispered, “Well, aren’t you radiant?” Jackie felt a pat on her derriere as her heart raced with excitement.

Ohhhhhhhh!

Holly strolled away, her hips wiggling, as if in a game of cat and mouse.

Wanna play? I’m in!

Suddenly, Jackie felt herself flush and become light-headed. Grasping the nearest chair, she collapsed in it as she saw stars. The excitement and the alcohol on an empty stomach hit her hard.

When the wave passed, she looked around, but saw no sign of Holly. Disappointed, she sat quietly for several minutes, deciding what to do next.

A wicked smile emerged across her face as she realized the possibility of a rendezvous with Holly in the pool house she noticed on her right. First line of business, however, was to get a refill.

The bar was crowded. She stood wishing the line would hurry up. She was on a mission to find her temptress.

Soon after Jackie heard a whisper in her ear.

“Meet me.”

The sound of Holly’s voice caused Jackie to salivate.

I’m winning this game tonight.

Thank you for stopping by today. This means a lot, not just for me, but for everyone else who has helped me along the way. I couldn’t have done it without you. Stay tuned for next week when I’ll be featuring a book review.

Until Next Time,

Lynn

My Review of Kathy L. Salt’s ‘Stargazing’

Good afternoon everyone and welcome. Thank you for visiting last week for my review of Nico J. Genes, ‘Magnetic Reverie.’ If you haven’t checked this book out, I recommend it.

Today I am posting my review for Kathy L. Salt‘s ‘Stargazing.’ I interviewed Kathy back in March, 2018. You can click on the link below for it.

Kathy L. Salt Interview

 
Stargazing Cover

‘Stargazing‘ is a story between two women, Lissa and Star, who come from two different walks of life. It starts off in the middle of a scene, which took me as a surprise. Keep reading. Let’s meet our main players.

Lissa had a rough upbringing and lost her folks at an early age. Because of this, she dove into things such as work to keep her mind occupied from residual pain. She is low self-esteem. She comes off as nervous and is not very social except with her sister, Dea. She is passive-aggressive. She goes along with the crowd, but secretly deep inside she craves her own life. Her mind pushes her heart away. However, she sees the best in people and doesn’t judge them based on outer appearances.

She’s good at her job but is only doing it for a paycheck. She hides behind her job because she doesn’t think she is worthy to attract a nice woman. She gave up on attracting love long ago and is very inexperienced. Because of her job, she gets abused sometimes by clients. But, she does what she can to keep her emotions in check.

Star also had a beginning, due to her mother’s destructive lifestyle. This made me sad and I felt for her. Despite this, Star is very social and is loyal to old friends. She is a cute soft butch and has a tender heart. She has a young spirit isn’t shy about expressing herself. She is laid back and comfortable in most situations.

She is a strong woman and has multiple responsibilities. I loved the mother-daughter relationship described at the hospital. Star is family oriented and wants to make sure her loved ones are taken care of. This really touched me that she put herself aside and put her attention on her mom. Well done. I had tears in my eyes when she went to visit her, and it was hard reading the one-sided conversations.

Like Lissa, Star has her own intimacy fears. She often isolates to hide from how she feels. I loved this character and how she was able to help Lissa work through a few things. The two of them transformed during the story and it was beautiful to watch.

In addition to the protagonists, there are a few supporting characters.  

Dierdre is Star’s best friend and immediately I didn’t like her. She is unkind to people she hires. Her boldness turned me off and she is too pessimistic.

Kathy's dogs

Malena is Star’s other friend. She is mysterious yet has a sophisticated vibe. You will be impressed that she is multilingual and has an interest in genealogy. I liked this character and was glad that she had a presence in the story.

Dea is Lissa’s loving sister. I find her to be narrow-minded about certain things.

The flow of the story is really balanced. It is a fun read and I know you’re going to enjoy the characters and the story.

There is plenty of drama from both women that will keep your heart beating fast. Things change in the story that will take you for a ride.

The romance scenes are frequent and extremely intense. They are borderline graphic. Be prepared.

Although no major destinations were mentioned, she did a good job describing places like the beach and a popular hangout.

You are going to want to carve out about four hours so that you can fully absorb the essence of the story. The characters are very well described and fit their roles perfectly. The dynamics vary, and the one that develops between Star and Lissa is priceless. The scenes were written so beautifully that I felt like I was there too. I am recommending this story for all who want to enjoy a fun and steamy romance in sunny California.

Stargazing Cover

I have included an excerpt. Enjoy!

The next Friday, Lissa and Star met outside The Crying Nightingale. Unlike last time, the place was packed. But Star liked it. In the crowd she could pull Lissa to the dance floor and slip into anonymity. No one would bother them or stare at them in a sea of people.

The music beat through their bodies, and they had no choice but to move. Star couldn’t believe everything that she was feeling; she couldn’t remember a woman making her tremble this way since she was a teenager. She put her hands on Lissa’s hips and held their bodies together. She couldn’t bear to be further away from her. She needed Lissa close.

Her heart skipped a beat when Lissa put her arms around Star’s neck and kissed her cheek before they resumed their dance.

“I feel so happy,” Lissa whispered in Star’s ear.

Thank God, Star thought. She wanted Lissa to like her just as much as she did. She saw desire and happiness reflected back at her, in the dim, flashing lights of the club.

The song ended and Star led Lissa to the bar, wanting a drink. “What do you want?”

Stargazing Cover

“Hmm.” Lissa bit her lip again. “I’ve always wanted to try a sex-on-the-beach.”

Star burst out laughing.

“Sure,” she waved at the bartender. “A sex-on-the-beach and a beer, please.”

They stood by the bar while waiting for their drinks. Star grimaced when an elbow from out of nowhere poked her in the back. Lissa smiled and shrugged, put a hand on Star’s forearm and pulled her closer.

“I don’t mind that it’s crowded.” Lissa’s breath hit Star’s ear and made her heart pound and her insides turn to liquid. You need to get a grip, Star, you should have better control than this. She couldn’t remember the last time a woman had had such an effect on her.

They received their drinks and Star laughed at Lissa’s delighted smile when she tried her sex-on-the-beach.

Lissa’s smile disappeared and her eyes went wide.

See you all next week.

Until Next Time,

Awakened by Fate

Hello Everyone and a big welcome to you. I want to thank Photographer, Laure Dherbécourt for stopping by to chat last week. Thank you who visited the site. I really appreciate your support. Today I am featuring two excerpts from my dynamic story, ‘Awakened by Fate.’ Read on and enjoy!

Excerpt 1

Later at home, Jackie began her night with a soak in the Jacuzzi and a glass of wine. With the sage incense burning, she lay back and allowed her mind to wander. Soon she fell into the rhythm of the rippling water. Within an instant her worries about work were out of her thoughts. The only thing that mattered was being in the here and now.

Her solitude was interrupted by the ring of her phone. Smiling, Jackie pressed the answer key.

“Hi Jackie, are you busy now?” Lisa asked.

“No, I’m just having a relaxing evening at home. And you?”

“Getting ready to get into my Jacuzzi.”

Jackie smiled to herself and replied, “Oh, wow! How’d you know I’m in mine?”

“Oh, it just came to me. Since everyone is out of the house, tonight would be a perfect night for a soak.” Pausing a moment, Lisa continued, “Anyway, I just called to tell you that next Thursday, my friend, Jen, has an art showing at the Illusion Gallery in West Hollywood. I was wondering if you’d like to go with me.”

Jackie’s eyes lit up. She and Kyle had been there years ago, and she really liked the art.

“Lisa, I’d love to go with you. What type of work does your friend do?”

“She is a contemporary artist who adds photographs to her work. If you would like, I can send you a link to her web site.”

Jackie rattled off her email address.

“Oh, I haven’t told you this yet.”

“What’s that?”

“For some time now I’ve been dabbling in some artwork myself. I do sculpture and would like to show you a piece that I just finished.”

Jackie felt herself tense up. Now she understood the image she had witnessed at Lauren’s party. Still she was baffled. “That would be great. I’d love to see your work.”

“All right. While you’re here I’ll show you something else I’ve been playing with.” Lisa then explained her love for African masks.

“This is so wonderful. Tell me more about your African safari vacation,” Jackie said.

Jackie and Lisa spoke for a little while.

Excerpt 2

Jackie shuddered. After a quick debate, she decided not to confide in her. After all she didn’t know Lisa very well and didn’t want to burden her with her problems.

“Thanks.”

“Listen, the reason for my call was that I wanted to know what you were doing next Thursday. If I’m not mistaken, don’t you have that day off?”

“Yeah.”

“Well, I was wondering if you’d like to come over and see my sculptures.”

Energetically, Jackie replied, “I’d love to come over and see your work. Recently a friend took me to an art gallery and they had one sculpture artist.

“I just love working with plaster. Sometimes I paint them. Tribal looks are my favorite. I have a picture of one that I recently sold that I’d like to show you.”

“I wished it was next Thursday already. I know I’m in for a real treat.”

“It’s a date then. How about around 6:00 p.m?”

After Jackie hung up the phone, she went to the kitchen and refilled her glass. Plopping on the couch, she thought about her vision she’d witnessed of Lisa.

I wonder if Lisa is going to hit the big time? Why else did this come to me?

“I know, why don’t I try a meditation and see if anything comes forward,” she said aloud.

She prepared.

It didn’t take her long to get relaxed, since she was already drunk. Closing her eyes, she began deep breathing. Soon the white glowing screen materialized. At first, all she saw were colored shapes. Then people started to materialize.

Suddenly, Jackie saw herself among the crowd. Loud voices and music were all around her, clear as day. The smell of beer and smoke filled the air. With awe in her eyes, Jackie looked amongst the people huddled in front of the Bowtie Club.

A group of people emerged from the bar and walked over to the curb. One person met eye contact with Jackie and gave her a strange look. Jackie looked away, not caring what it meant. Looking around, she recognized a woman whom she used to know down at the corner. Jackie moved in closer.

A chill crept up her legs, so she walked more briskly. Once at the corner, she met eye contact with her friend. However, the woman just kept talking like nothing at all. No matter how much Jackie waved, she could not get her attention. Disappointed, she turned to walk down the street. When she got to the corner, she turned and continued walking.

Out of nowhere came the loud barking of a large dog. Frantically, she bolted down the street as fast as she could. To her horror, the dog chased her!

I’ve got to get to safety, and fast too!

The next thing she knew, she was back in her living room and rubbing her legs, trying to get warm and out of breath. She tried to rationalize what had just happened and had no success. And then a dog reacted to her. Frightened, she left all the lights on and before she went to bed.

Meet Author Domina Alexandra

Good afternoon friends and welcome. Today I have asked author Domina Alexandra to stop by to chat with us about her new book from Triplicity Publishing, ‘I belong with Her’, which is now available for you to enjoy. Come on over and meet this fabulous woman. You are going to be amazed. We’ll see you over there.

Author Photo 2

“Find something you love and do it in purpose.”
-Unknown author

Tell us about yourself.
Where do I begin? I am from Southern California. I guess that’s a great place to start off. I’ve always been a deep thinker and writer. Sports was the thing that outshined my ability to write. I became an EMT in 2014; wanting to make a difference. I have come to learn, I really became an EMT to give back. I wasn’t a wild kid; only a confused spirit. Coming out totally helped discover who I am today. Discover my passion above all things. To become a writer, who loves to serve the community on the side.

What is your favorite part of writing?
If I can get lost in my writing, I’ve reached the highest point of living every time! Writing can make me feel so many things. I always say I create from pure imagination that I gained from being stuck in my head too long as a child. Every story I create is a world I can escape into, and that’s one of my most favorite things about writing.

Book Cover

How would you describe the protagonist in your new book? How did the idea for the location come about?
SELRES_68d5cbe3-240a-45f9-a68e-d4167281b70bSELRES_03f0de7d-e8fb-4cb4-ab03-84e55271b281Both of my leading characters in my book are passionate about what they do. Living as a Paramedic; seeing life in a new way, opens them up to be strong, independent, and quite both feisty women. A piece of how I see myself. The location was easy to come up with. Moving to Oregon; the lifestyle and ambiance are amazing. I simply thought, why not?SELRES_03f0de7d-e8fb-4cb4-ab03-84e55271b281SELRES_68d5cbe3-240a-45f9-a68e-d4167281b70b

Being from LA, are you into sports. If so, what teams do you like?
I used to be a huge sports player. I grew up playing basketball. In time, I fell in love with volleyball. I know, a typical lesbian thing, from what I hear. Far as sports teams, I haven’t cheered for a team in years. If my friends are watching a game, I’d just support their favorite team for that day.

What is the cutest thing your dogs do?
I have a lot of pictures of dogs, but none of them are mine. I have a couple of friends who ask me to dog sit for them on occasion. Now, I spend time with them as if I’m their Godmom, spoiling them and sending them back home.

How is living in Oregon different from SoCal?
For starters, the trees and all its glorious nature! I say southern California is half alive. As for Oregon, its green, vibrant, and fully living. I’ve made much quicker connections in Oregon and the openness of how others think is much vivid than I ever knew possible.

Where have you seen the most beautiful sunrise?
Detroit Lake, Oregon has one of the based spots to see an amazing sunrise. I think I took over two dozen pictures of that alone and that’s saying much.

Lake Detroit Oregon

Where is a great place to hike near where you live?
I love Silver Falls. 10 waterfalls along the trail. I’ve been to Silver falls several times in the last two years.

What other authors do you follow and why?
Radclyffe, Graysen Morgen, Patricia Briggs, Jae. I could keep going! They each have a style; an ability about them that has helped me build up my confidence to do the same. Write and do it in a way that makes others want to do it too. Their imagination, personal knowledge, openness to write outside the scope of mundane life. It all excites me about them!Machu Picchu

If you won a prize for a vacation in the Caribbean or Peru, which one would you pick and why?
Peru is the definite choice. Me on an island or beach, in general, is not my ideal vacation. Going on a vacation like to Peru, I’d gain more culture and history out of it. That goes back to me being a deep thinker and wanting to know what historical moments took place? My nerd kicks on!

You get the call from a producer who wants to make a movie out of your book. Would you want to have a cameo appearance?
It wouldn’t matter to me if I could play a small part in the movie or not! I’d been more ecstatic just knowing my book was being viewed in a more visual content.

Who has been the biggest influence on your writing?
For most of my life, writing has been a private thing for me. Not something I shared with others, until recently. It started off as just a tool to get my thoughts down and grew from there. I read so many books, my mind popped multiple times. Coming out, I finally understood the missing link to why I couldn’t write before and found my inspiration again. I found my true passion. So, my biggest inspiration comes from authors. The many Lesbian books I read and even books that weren’t queer based. I believed in myself through those Authors stories!

Do you believe dreams can come true?
Yes! I believe we can manifest what we truly desire and dream of. Does it come the way we want and when we would like it? Not always, but, dreams can come true if you just believe! That sounded so Disney and Hallmark!

Let’s talk about your experience with the Live Theatre program. Are you still working in the theater?
I loved working in Theatre. It was an accident getting into Theatre. I needed to fill in my College credits for the semester and that was all that was left. I went in thinking, I’d hide in the background. I was quite anti-social back then, it was one of the biggest changes in my life. I began to discover myself, and in the process realized I was hell of great. Was in the Theatre program, four years. Toward the end, I learned I enjoyed writing screenplays, comedy skits, and monologues more than acting. I had this popular comedy skit called, “Studdar Ball.” Though someday I plan to get back into skit writing, for now, I’m solely focused on being a Queer based fictional writer.

What’s next for you?
I am writing a new story right now. Truthfully, I have multiple books already written. I’ve just been sitting on them for the last few years. But now that I’m actively becoming a published author, I can’t stop writing. Expect nothing but more books to come and of a wide genre of lesbian fiction!

Me: I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us.

Lisa tapped her head and said, “Now I remember what I wanted to talk to you about. Tom told me that you love to go to the downtown Art Walk. You know, I’ve never been. Would you be up to going with me sometime?”

“Yeah, there’s one coming up next month. I’d love to go. What time do you get off from work?” Jackie said.

“Five o’clock, but I can always find an excuse to get off early. If you’d like, I could come pick you up.”

Lisa gave her phone to Jackie so she could add her information. The second Jackie touched it, she felt a bolt of energy flow through her. An instant later, she saw a flash of Lisa standing in front of a sculpture grinning. Jackie dropped the phone into her lap.

“Jackie, did I say something to offend you? If I did, I’m really sorry.”

“No. I’m not sure what just happened.”

“Are you feeling nauseous? Why don’t you sit right here, and I’ll get you a cold towel?”

When Lisa returned, she handed the towel to Jackie. Jackie buried her head in it, absorbing the moisture.

Why am I seeing random visions? This is maddening!

After a minute, she put the towel down and said, “Sometimes I just get lightheaded. It’s nothing to worry about.”

Jackie is a woman living life according to her own rules. She’s married, but it’s the unspoken, open kind. She can have as many female lovers as she wants; she just can’t talk about them.

Now that everything has been brought out into the open, she finds she can’t run away from her truth anymore. With her new life, comes new responsibilities and a different outcome than what she was expecting.

     She did her best to blend in, walking around, drink in hand. Then she saw Holly. This time she wasn’t letting her get away, so she locked in on her.
     Arching her eyebrow, Holly said, “So you’re back, I see. How would you like to go do something bad?”
     Jackie felt her heart race like she was running a marathon. Her nipples hardened and her insides quivered. Smiling, she replied, “What did you have in mind?”
     “Whatever you’d like.”
     Jackie led her to the pool house. She imagined feeling the warmth of the woman’s smooth naked skin against hers.
     They slipped into the darkness. The glow of the full moon provided their only light.       Closing the door, Holly was suddenly all over her. “Are you ready for the ride of your life?” Holly asked.
     Jackie barely got, “Oh, yes” out of her mouth when Holly’s mouth was upon hers. She worked her tongue into Jackie’s mouth and their tongues danced. Reaching behind Jackie, she unzipped her dress and gently moved it over her shoulders. It fell to the floor and Jackie kicked it away.

Good afternoon Everyone and welcome. I want to thank you who came to visit last week. It was great to see you all. I’m so grateful for those who made ‘Awakened by Fate’ possible.

Jackie is a woman living life according to her own rules. She’s married, but it’s the unspoken, open kind. She can have as many female lovers as she likes; she just can’t talk about them. After a bizarre encounter turns her world upside down, things slowly begin to change. She finds herself in desperation as she searches for answers. What she discovers is nothing is delivered in a neatly wrapped box. Now that everything has been brought out into the open, she finds she can’t run away from her truth anymore. With her new life, comes new responsibilities and a different outcome than what she was expecting. Jackie isn’t alone in the story. She meets several new people who help her along her journey.

Meet Author Graysen Morgen

Good afternoon friends and welcome. I want to thank all of you who visited last week for my 2018 Goals blog. Today I have a special treat for you. Author Graysen Morgen  of Triplicity Publishing  is here to talk with us. This is an interview you want to read. She is amazing. Come see why.

Author Profile Picture

Tell us about yourself.
I’ve been happily married to my best friend for 18½ years, and we have a 7-year-old daughter. I went to the University of Florida, which is where I met my wife. I was a Lieutenant in the Navy, working as a flight deck officer on an aircraft carrier. I now spend my time writing books, sports writing for women’s pro soccer, and coaching youth soccer.

What is your book “Boone Creek” about?
Boone Creek is a western, set in Colorado in 1880. This story is the first in a series about an outlaw woman named Jessie Henry, who leaves her past behind to start anew. She winds up in a small, troubled town called Boone Creek, where after a mishap, she becomes the Town Marshall.

Me: Graysen’s new book, ‘Castor Valley’, is the second in this series and one that you’re going to want to read.

How did you feel the moment you saw your first book published?
I was overjoyed. I’d always loved reading, and once I’d started writing, it sort of took off. I’m still thrilled to see each new book get published. It’s a huge sense of accomplishment.

What was the last book you read? Would you recommend it?
I don’t find as much time to read as I used to, but the last book I made time for was Scarlett. It’s a sequel to Gone With The Wind, by Alexandra Ripley.

How has your daughter been an inspiration for you? 
My daughter, Rylie, is my whole world. She looks up to me in so many ways and mimics everything I do. I try my best to be a good role model for her. She makes me a better person. When I first wrote Natural Instinct, my wife and I weren’t thinking of having any children, at least at that time. It’s funny, my daughter turned out very similar in character to the little girl in the book. I don’t write many children into my books, but each one has a piece of Rylie in it for sure, whether it’s when she was little, what she’s like now, or what I hope for her to be like as she gets older.

Graysen and Rylie

What are your daughter’s creative activities?
She loves anything to do with art, and she’s actually written two books about animals, both of which she also illustrated. Plus, an avid reader and has a soaring imagination.

How has your family been supportive of your career?
My wife is the person who first told me I should write my own stories, instead of reading so many books, mostly because after reading a book, I’d tell her everything I would’ve done differently. J When I wrote a couple of stories, she pushed me to get them published. She’s been behind me from the very beginning. The rest of my family is very proud of what I have accomplished. Some of them have read every single book that has been published.

Can you explain more about “#Bekindchallenge”?
Be Kind Challenge is about random acts of kindness. There is so much power in a simple gesture. The challenge is a month of doing one kind thing every day.

What is the cutest thing your dogs do?
Remy and Roxy are Jack Russell Terriers who are just over a year old. They are littermate girls, and they run our lives! J They chase each other around the house, watch TV with our daughter, hang out in the office when I’m writing, you name it. I’d say the cutest thing is the way they are always together. The sleep in the oddest positions like yin/yang or on top of each other.

Roxy and Remy

Who are you rooting for in the next World Cup Soccer championship?
If it’s the World Cup, then I’m always rooting for the USA. I’m a fan of Canada, Australia, and England so I root for them if they’re not playing the USA.

Where is a good place to hang out with friends?
We do a lot of family stuff, so our hangout this past year was Disney World, literally every month. We have an oasis in our backyard, so hanging out at home is always nice.

What would be the perfect ‘stay-cation’ for you?
We pretty much have a stay-cation every weekend, but the perfect stay-cation for me would be some quiet time with absolutely nothing to do but read a novel or lie in the hammock by the pool.

What is your favorite time of year and why?
I love the holidays. There is just something magical about that time of year. We decorate inside and put up a full yard display outside with a lot of lights and wood cutouts that I make myself. I also look forward to the little bit of cold weather that we get in North Florida.

Would you ever want to co-write a book with another author?
Probably not. I believe all authors have a vision, and everyone’s vision is different.

What puts you in the zone when you are writing?
Music is my muse, so I listen to music when I write. It varies from classical to pop and everything in between.

Soccer Coach

What’s next for you?
I am currently working on a romantic adventure/suspense story that involves British MI6. I’m really hoping to turn it into a series. It’s fun, thrilling, sexy, humorous, all the qualities that make for a good read.
