What kind of stories do you like to read?
I love stories with a twist, the kind that take your breath away. Not with fear, but with a warm excitement and happy tears.
Do you write the same kind of stories?
Definitely. I love to take the reader’s imagination on an unforgettable journey, sometime through time like in my romantic suspense, Beneath The Lake. My heroine, Lacey Montgomery hurtles into a lake and awakens in an era few people still remember first hand. My readers smell the cool, crisp November settling into the North Georgia foothills, feel the anxiety of a young woman just opening her eyes, realizing she’s in the arms of a handsome stranger, in a place she’s never heard of––34 years before she was born.
Tell us about your $0.99 sale. What is your Destiny Series about?
As I said, I love twist endings. Destiny is a short story collection, five mystical stories, where fate intervenes in star-crossed romances with a sprinkle of magic.
I’d love to share my destiny trailer with your readers:
Can you give us a sneak peek into these stories?
Absolutely. I’ll begin with Destiny: I’ like to introduce you to self-reliant Reagan Nichols. She’s no stranger to challenges, but ever since twilight fell over Spirit Lake and that murky mist oozed inland, everything felt surreal. When she finds a little girl wandering through the eerie fog, Reagan vows to save the child’s father from the bowels of a ghostly vessel adrift on the lake. Will the three survive a confrontation with pure evil in order to meet their Destiny?
Book two is The Gift, right?
Yes, meet Savanna Bradford. The impulsive reaction to her boyfriend Ryan’s proposal spirals her into a rendezvous with fate and a mystical gift that could alter her future. Will the timeless struggle between dreams and passion bait her into repeating history, or will a simple gift from her bizarre encounter steer Savannah toward her true destiny before it’s too late?
After Midnight is the title of book three. Tell us more.
I’d love to. Sabrina Wentworth’s bewildering gift swept her into the sensuous arms of a dream lover. Every night, sometime after midnight, she slips into an illusory world drenched in passion. But the sands of time run out tonight. Can Brie find the key to her fantasy world before the reality of her ex boyfriend’s deadly plot plays through or will she be destined to death after midnight?
Convergent is the title of Book four. What is this storyline?
Meet prominent heart surgeon, Sierra Norton. She performs minor miracles on a daily basis, but never in her wildest dreams did she imagine she would live one. When lightning strikes her flight the aircraft plunges, swirls through turbulence, and catapults Sierra into a treacherous past––the attack on Pearl Harbor. In a whirlwind blur, Sierra’s courage, skill, and passion challenges her sanity. Can the convergence of three strong women reset history to fulfill her destiny?
The fifth story is The Pegasus Chronicle?
Yes, my last short is one of my favorites. When New York Time’s best selling author, Katlyn Harris, discovers a timeworn painting in the attic of the isolated home she mysteriously inherits, she feels a surge of déjà vu that spins her into a mysterious fantasy. Can dreams pierce the realm of reality or is Katlyn’s mystic connection to the antique painting the fulfillment of a promise torn from the pages of history?
Your collection sounds interesting. Is there anything else you want to share?
Destiny, was a winner in the AWC Awards. I’d like to share the Judges’ comments
At first these stories reel you into what appears to be formula romance. Then they turn the genre on its head, throwing a perfectly aimed, delightful curveball at the surprising and satisfying endings. The writer doesn’t rush any part of these stories, letting the reader see, hear, and feel the magical eeriness of each fateful night.
