Even after years of trauma therapy, Peyton still believes she’s broken. She has little desire to date or show off her natural beauty, content simply to hang out with her best friends and run her pie shop in New Orleans. But her world turns upside-down when a handsome architect and self-confessed player shows up in her shop and thinks she’s perfect, much more than the usual hook-up. While Peyton does her best to resist his charms, believing she could never be enough for him, she can’t deny the obvious heat between them. With Reed determined to have her, Peyton must decide whether to continue to hide behind her apron and baggy clothes or take a chance and share her scars with Reed, a man with a playboy reputation and scars of his own -- a dark past he can’t possibly share with Peyton, not after learning the horrors she’s endured. But if they can find a way to trust each other, and themselves, they just might be able to heal, to save each other, to live perfectly broken together.
#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career? Yes, although I’m just
at the beginning of it. Well, come to
think of it maybe my writing career started when I was five, and I sold my
first story to my dad for a quarter -- called, “Talkative Toby Toad Talks Too
Much.” I was really into alliteration
#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process? Semi-Colons!
I mean honestly, why do they even exist.
Editing is definitely the hardest part for me.
#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with
Your Writing Outside of Your Family? A
dear girlfriend of mine always is a test reader for me. I’ve known her since we were five. She tough but fair.
#4 – What is next for your writing? Book three is in the works already. I don’t want to say too much, except that the
characters of the third book are currently taking up a lot of space in my head.
#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing?
If so, what are you currently reading?
Since I started writing, I don’t read as much as I used too. I also have two kids that I read to. So right now, I’m knee deep into the newest
American girl novel.

#1 - iPd or Mp3? iPhone, my whole life is on my phone.

Neither, Pecan Praline

I really like both. My favorite
line from a movie is, “Laughter through
tears is my favorite emotion.” (Steel
Magnolias) So so very true.
#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks? Nicholas Sparks
#6 – Fantasy or Reality?
Fantasy obviously. It’s fabulous
to write stories where no one ever has to do the dishes, or mow the lawn
