secrets might just end everything.


Back at the villa, I
grabbed a beer from the fridge and retreated to the balcony. I’d missed the
Oregon air. The smell of the Green Douglas Firs. I was home.
Lifting my brows, I
waited for what she had to say.
“You’ve done so much
for me. I know that I owe you and…”
The chair flew back
hitting the wall when I shot up. “Don’t, Phoebe. I paid you to come here with
me, nothing more. Don’t do a goddamn thing because you think you owe me. I
kissed you because I felt like kissing you. You should have just said no. I’d
have respected that. But don’t kiss me because you feel some fucked up
I stepped past her,
rage boiling beneath the surface, and I stormed back inside.
“I didn’t kiss you
because I felt obligated,” she whispered. “I’ve imagined that kiss a thousand
times in my head since I met you.”
I stopped in my
tracks and slowly pivoted around.
“Those kisses
trumped every fantasy kiss I’ve had but…”
“No buts,” I stated,
setting my beer on the table. I swallowed as I strode purposefully toward her
without reservation. The deal sealed when she started walking too.

Author Bio
Just the
fact that someone may be reading my ‘bio’ thrills me. What does one say in an
author bio? Well, I LOVE to write! Sometimes characters talk to me in my head
(in a non-psychotic way) and I have to get what they are saying out on paper!
So, here we are! 🙂 
I am a
part-time juvenile probation officer and full-time wife, but I spend the
majority of the time helping my two favorite, college-aged sons navigate
through life and hopefully become the best humans they can be.
I am a huge
fan of the Kansas Jayhawks, the Oregon Ducks, the Chicago Cubs (I have a dog
named Wrigley) and the Kansas City Chiefs.
terribly addicted to music—ALLLLL kinds and driving in the car with the sunroof
open and radio turned up helps the creative juices flow.
I am deliciously
addicted to queso and cupcakes; but even with that…I like to slowly kill my
body with Crossfit. I’m annoyingly sarcastic.
People ask
me ‘what has been your favorite book to write’—I would have to say my original
series. (I think it sold 100 copies) 
FINALLY, I’m tweaking them! My heart was poured into these books—but
they needed tweaking.  Slick was my
Amazon best seller, but every one of them mean something to me.
In the end,
I truly believe life is taken way too seriously by most. I say enjoy every
moment, have an adult beverage and READ!! Cheers….
