I left the desk with a new pep in my step. It was approaching two in the morning, but I was far from tired, and still not feeling settled the way I normally did. Underneath the shallow excitement of my win, my mind was still clouded with stress. Deep down, agitation still soaked my spirit. As I turned the corner, my eyes fell on the long bar that took up most of one of the casino walls, backed by a huge aquarium full of exotic fish. My gaze hung there for a moment, following a purple-bodied fish with delicate pink fins...

Available now on Amazon! Justin and Toni were friends. Besties, with a whole list of life rules developed over a friendship that started when they were kids. As long as they stuck to the rules, even when they blended a business relationship into the friendship, things went off without a hitch. But then one of them broke the rules - It was Justin. Justin broke the rules- and Toni has been mad about it ever since. She’s spent the last several years traveling the globe to cultivate her business, but now she’s back in town. Her only goals? Help her parents with “Mr. Bestseller’s”...

“Heyyy,” he said, as the music shifted into something we both recognized. “Oh God.” I covered my face with my hands as Timbaland launched into the opening rap, about a woman who suddenly didn’t want to be bothered with him, and wondering if another man had her attention. There wasn’t a single part of me that was surprised when Justin came up behind me and grabbed my hand, turning me around. I pressed my lips together tight, trying hard not to smile as he sang the first line of the song, about trying to go on without me in his life. I’ll...

  Have I ever told you guys about my long list of jobs? No? Well, I'm not about to now either, because the details aren't that relevant. Let's just say, in my (short?) 29 years, I've had a lot of them. Some just to make it by, some where I had myself convinced that I was pursuing a dream. Those are the ones that matter, but I'm not going to detail those either. Because again, the specifics don't matter. What matters is that I have a painful (shameful?) abundance of points in my life where I put my foot out there in pursuit of...

Unedited. Subject to change. No official release date yet, and all that jazz :) Enjoy! “There’s my double chocolate muffin,” I teased, opening my arms as she approached. She flung herself into me, wrapping her arms around my neck for a hug. “Everything looks sooooo pretty Daddy!” she said, her eyes wide as she looked around. Her bedtime was actually fast approaching, but I spotted a bit of bright blue frosting at the corner of her mouth – someone had been at the cupcake table, and I doubted her energy was wearing off soon. “You having fun?” My question was met with a deep,...

I don't have a release date. Really :) But please enjoy this sample! I let out a deep, heavy sigh as hot water sprayed over me, working out the knots in my aching limbs. I closed my eyes as I turned my back to the spray, briefly considering the consequences of just staying in there forever. I was tired. Tired as hell. The phone call from last night had gotten pushed back even later, which meant I was up in the middle of the night doing business, only to wake up early to help my parents pack up the house. I’d spent the morning...
