Enter the worlds where the tales of the most sinful of Vices and the darkest of Virtues will entice and intrigue you…
…for even among the most devout there is a dark side.

Visionary New Years
“Hey, what you-” I began lifting my head to question his sudden movement when his lips met mine. I smiled, closing my eyes; returning the kiss.
We kissed for what seemed like minutes when he pulled away; both of us out of breath.
“Do I have to distract you before you stay still?” He asked.
“I like distractions. Especially ones that require good kisses,” I replied. I pulled out of his embrace; changing position on the couch to face him. He lifted an eyebrow; confused as to what I was planning.
“Now I can kiss you and you can work on my back.” I grinned.
“It’s multitasking,” I emphasized.
“Come here.” He whispered.

I love books, I always have and always will. Writing is an extension of that and though it has taken me a while to get here, I now can officially call myself a published author.
I grew up on a ranch in Eastern Washington, so I wanted to set my books on the Columbia River in Washington state. Harper Falls is completely fictitious, but I think anyone from the area will know right where it would be if it did exist.
My hobbies are gardening, reading, baking(fattening desserts are my favorite), exercise(I don't love it, but it is necessary due to the desserts), and animals. I had a dog but when he died I couldn't bring myself to replace him. That is why I wrote Edgar, the dog into "If I Loved You", I consider him my surrogate puppy until I can get a real one.
I love to get feedback on my books so I hope everyone will feel free to leave a question or visit my website(it is a work in progress, but I'm getting there).

All We Want For Christmas Is You
Marcus turned his attention back to me – a satisfied grin formed on his smooth lips. I finally realized what he just did.
“How long until they realize you totally lied?”
“If I’m lucky thirty minutes, but knowing how sharp Elias is, he’ll find Kai in twenty.”
“You do realize you’ll have three angry shifters after you.”
“I’m prepared for that.” He reassured me. I was about to stand up when one arm hooked around me and his other arm hooked underneath my knees, lifting me up with ease.
I quickly hooked my hands around his neck as I gave him a confused look.
“What are you doing?”
“I’m kidnapping the princess.”
“I don’t think you’re supposed to reveal your plans.”
“There’s no one here to stop me.”
“How about if I don’t want to be kidnapped?”
He buried his face against my shoulder – kissing my flesh. I moaned, biting my lip. He rose to kiss me on my lips before pulling away.
“Trust me, my Firefly. You shall enjoy me kidnapping you. Now, we must scurry away to my evil lair, aka my bedroom.”
