To celebrate the release of LOVING JADE on May 25th, I am putting LOVING AMBER and LOVING RUBY on sale for 99 cents until June 1st. All books available on Kindle Unlimited! Links: AMBER: http://amzn.to/2cSacad RUBY: http://amzn.to/2jcaTQA JADE: http://bit.ly/2pzpVDS
The Riverstone Estate – A beautiful Estate. Three unforgettable love stories. Following the sudden passing of their father, Amber, Ruby and Flynn Riverstone inherit the family estate and find themselves facing new challenges, growing closer, and discovering love along the way.
Following reader feedback, I’ve decided to revise the cover for Loving Amber to better reflect the content. Loving Amber is a second chance erotic romance family saga set on a farm, and the previous cover reflected more of a paranormal suspense thriller type novel.

The Five-Year Plan
Sometimes even the best-laid plans are meant to be broken…
Emma Breyer has always been the ‘ugly duckling’ – the one no one sees. Fed up, she decides to make a plan and finally become the person she wants to be.
She is shocked when the plan works! Finally, she has it all – the blond hair, fake lashes, fabulous job and gorgeous boyfriend.
But then she hits a little snag – in the form of a beautiful brooding artist. Griffin is everything she is NOT looking for. But he’s the only one who seems to truly see her and not just the person she’s pretending to be.
Now, she must choose between the perfect life she so carefully planned, and the one she has accidentally stumbled into.
I’ve been bad… I admit it. I haven’t posted since June. I suppose I’ve been a little busy this summer. I was busy camping with my family, and polishing my upcoming erotic trilogy. But it all paid off, since I’ve got a great tan, and I’ve recently signed a contract with Omnific Publishing – a romance publisher, and my trilogy will be available in a few months… so excited. Keep an eye out!!!

Now, I’m off to find a ‘crush of the week’ for this week… tough work but someone needs to do it.
When I write, not only do I like to have a very clear image of my characters in my mind, but I also like to have a visual image of the setting. This helps in telling the story and also in describing the scene and the setting which helps the readers put himself/herself there. I often look for pictures in décor magazines and on the internet. Most of my scenes occur in a homes, restaurants, gardens. For Sophie’s house near the beach – the “Snow White” house, I selected this lovely little house – it’s very quaint and cozy. This house play a central role in the story as it is the reason Sophie comes back to her hometown – to help her mother renovate and sell the house. And the lovely John is the contractor. Sophie’s bedroom featured below is actually never used in a love scene, but it is featured in an emotional scene at the end as well as a flashback scene, and a few scenes where she’s just lying in bed, thinking about John.
When writing a romance, I always start with a basic concept or hook. And the next step is character development. I find it helps to have a visual idea of my characters, especially my hero and heroine. Most of my heroes are tall, dark and handsome of course. In Back to You, my hero ‘John’ is inspired by Canadian actor Scott Speedman (this week’s ‘crush of the week’), who is most famous for his role in the TV series ‘Felicity’, and was recently seen in ‘The Vow’ as Rachel’s McAdams fiancé. For my heroine ‘Sophie’, I was inspired by actress Kristen Ritter who appeared in many films, and ‘The bitch in Apartment 3B’ and also ‘Breaking Bad’.
I like the visual contrast in these two characters; John is rugged and unkempt, light haired, and blue-eyed. And Sophie is prim and proper, dark haired and has big dark eyes. Her skin is very pale and it’s one of the reasons John calls her ‘Snow’.
