Date Published: 6/17/2013
Detective Jeff Woods and his partner have a new case. Someone has been making threatening phone calls to the mayor’s daughter, vowing to kill her disabled child. Though there have been accidents at the girl’s school—enough to take the threats seriously—the facts are few, and leads are sparse.
Needing a breather from the burden of the case, Jeff heads to a bar, where he meets Alex Fisher. Alex isn’t his type, but he’s young and cocky and perfect for a one-night stand. Or two. Soon Jeff starts thinking about how difficult and lonely it is being a cop, and that maybe Alex could fill a void in his life. But Alex has his own obligations: a disabled brother who is the target of threatening letters.
Jeff isn’t sure he’s ready to play house or overcome his prejudices, but he begins to think Alex might be worth it. Caught between his growing affection and his inner demons, Jeff struggles to focus on the case and protect Alex and his brother as the danger builds.
Yes. There's a lot of work involved—writing, re-writing, promoting. Writing will never be my only career but I love doing it.
#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
To let go of parts that don't move the plot forward. I'm still struggling to find a good balance between the development of the characters romantic relationship and the actual plot.
#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
A very good friend, who already helped me out in my fan fiction days, still beta reads my manuscripts. Also, the editors I've worked with so far and a special shout-out goes to Julie Lynn Hayes, who always supports me and beta reads the stories I send her.
#4 – What is next for your writing?
After revising a shape-shifter novella I'll work on finishing the second Jeff Woods Mystery, so far called Sacrifices.
#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?
I love reading! The last books I've read were The Mallorean by David Eddings and My Regelence Rake by J.L. Langley.
