The Dark Side...Just kidding....

Something different for you all from me...

I don't usually get too personal here anymore, don't ask me why. I guess it's time constraints. I'm busting my butt to write the stories torturing my head and get them out for every one to enjoy. I at least pray someone is enjoying them! So...I decided to get more personal on here for those who want to see a different side of me and get to know what the heck is going on inside this crazy brain of mine.

The Dark Side...

Just kidding.

No really...

I don't often say what inspires me to write the things I do. So, starting with my most recent release: The Fall of Sky: A Rock 'n Roll Saga, I wanted to let readers know what inspired me to write some of the things I did in that book.

Yes, I did pull a lot from my past lives. When I think back on the stuff I've done in my short life, I really am looking at someone else's life. It's been eons ago since I was in that stage of life and looking at me now, one can wonder how the heck I fitted that stuff in.

I wrote The Fall of Sky about two sisters who are very close and sing duets in shady bars for money, hoping to hit it big while getting into tons of trouble. Who doesn't want to be a rock star right? I know I did. I sang, danced, played guitar and piano when I was younger. I even attended the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts High School my sophomore year. It was awesome and a total culture shock for me. This was a place I was immersed in the arts from the moment I stepped foot on campus to the moment I went home. I danced until my feet bled, I sang until my voice went out and I played until my fingers literally blistered. It was a grand ole time! The atmosphere was eclectic, fierce yet relaxing, loud but exciting. What a rush.

I wanted to convey this excitement in my story. The feel of music thrumming through your body as it vibrates the room. The hypnotic effects of writing music and hearing your deepest inner thoughts fill your ears and affect the people listening. I wanted to share what it felt like to be on stage with every eye on you along with the blinding lights that separate a performer from the audience. It's a high that can only  be understood by other performers.

For most of my stories, I've stated I do not draw from my personal life. It's mostly true. I do pull from it in more recent works than I used to because these stories are projections of things I've experienced and would've loved to learn more about or seen more of. They are a vital ingredient to flavor the books I write. So when you're reading one of my stories, you can think on it, what part of Alexia is in here? Is she a character? A Characteristic in a character? Is this a scene from her experiences? Most times, you will never know. I'll never tell. Sometimes, yes, you'll see a little piece of me floating around in the story and I might admit to it. Maybe. Ask me, you won't know unless you ask.

 Hope you enjoy the books as much as I've had imagining them up.

The Fall of Sky: A Rock 'n Roll Saga is dedicated to my readers. Rock on!

Love ya x

Releases 2/11/15! Get it HERE

My Confession: I have a confession to make...and this is hard because I don't like to share my very private thoughts most days. But, this is a special scene for two of my all time favorite characters: Shade and Dylan from A Dark Faerie Tale Series. So...if they shared...I'll share a little secret too...

I sent my secret crush a valentine rose my junior year. He got it, smiled, spoke to me briefly and told me he just wanted to be friends! I was mortified and even quit my creative writing class so I wouldn't have to look at him anymore! Talk about  unrequited love! Glad I'm not in high school anymore. Never fear...I had plenty of boyfriends after that and years of awesome love. Still do! Just goes to show you, yes, your heart can ache like the dickens, but life goes on and there's always someone else out there who'd gladly take that place by your side! :)

Enjoy a new steamy scene of Shade and Dylan in this awesome collection that you don't want to miss! 
I'm giving away 1 paperback and 1 Audiobook copy of:
