available now on Amazon Within the bounds of complacency, there exists a boring, beautiful sort of peace, and Khalida has found it. Welcomes it, in fact. A nice, comfortable life, with a great job, a good, albeit on and off again boyfriend, a great relationship with her younger sister...

“Khalida?” I turned to see Trav’s assistant, a petite blonde with electric-blue framed glasses, standing at the doorway to the club. “What is it, Brooke?” “Travis wants to see you in his office.” She gave me a sympathetic smile, like she knew her boss was full of shit, then shrugged. With a deep, cleansing breath, I nodded, then turned back to the construction. This was a damned disaster, and Travis could wait. I went to my office first, to call Cameron Taylor — owner of the magazine — to let her know about the problem. I knew she’d be pissed, and wanted to...

I'm writing from the treadmill this morning, and the intention is to keep this quick, but we'll see. What I'm about to express only applies to ME. My views, my opinion, all of that. Anyway. There's this "thing" when it comes to romance, that I've seen many of my fellow authors say: "the color of the characters shouldn't matter". I disagree. I mean, I guess it's all well and good when you're trying to get people to open themselves up to more diversity (meaning, trying to get people to read books that aren't about white people) but for ME, personally, i think...

It's been a while ;) Zoe is fast approaching 2.5, so we've decided it's time to get very serious about potty training. We've been taping her into her diapers at night to keep her from taking it off and using the floor in her room as a bathroom. We think she's showing some good signs of readiness this time around. Also, we're cruising again, on the Carnival Breeze, at the end of April, 8 day, eastern Caribbean. DON'T NOBODY WANNA DEDICATE A SUITCASE TO DIAPERS. So, yeah Zoe bug, we need some cooperation. Our last cruise was...

Available here on Amazon Secrets always have a way of coming to light.  Special Agent Renata Parker learns this the hard way, when the secret she’s held close for many years is finally revealed, exposing her as traitor to the team of thieves, spies, hackers, and federal agents who thought they shared a common goal — take down Damien Wolfe. Her dedication to their cause doesn’t quite stand up to scrutiny — especially for Quentin, a fellow hacker who was drawn to Renata’s quiet energy before her true identity was exposed.  With her loyalty in question, Renata finds herself in a position where...

Since Amazon isn't playing nicely with me re: the time it's taking for Release Me If You Can to go live, you can read the full first chapter here : http://beingmrsjones.com/release-me-if-you-can-chapter-one/ I'll update this post when the book is live!...

{Sample contains spoilers for book one in the series, Catch Me If You Can}   “He’s Taylor’s father.” For a lingering moment, those words hung in the air, garnering no response. Hot tears pooled in Renata’s eyes as she swallowed the urge to let them fall. It wasn’t a good time for tears. She wished Quentin would do something. Yell, scream, curse her out… anything had to be better than the look of cold disgust twisted into his handsome face. He was perfectly still. So still, in fact, that Renata wondered for a second if he was even breathing, but then he finally exhaled, and...
