58 years ago a gorge opened up from Mobile, AL to Quebec City, Canada to split the United States into the Western States (WS) and the Eastern States (ES).

40 years later, a fog rolled in on the WS that they called the Veil. Within twelve hours it formed an impenetrable wall between the two sides.

It’s been 18 years since anyone has known what’s happening on the other side of the Veil.

Now, Lori, an Other, in a desperate attempt at escape from the ES’s torture and experimentation, has crossed the Veil and found a world beyond belief.

Marcus is a Warrior, but when Lori collapses at his feet wounded and exhausted, he knows he has to protect her. But seeing that she’s the first person he’s seen in 18 years without wings, he’s worried about what her appearance means for his people and the world they’ve created since the Veil fell.

Two new societies: one built on a respect for the natural order of nature and the world, the other built on mistrust and corruption. Can they learn to co-exist once again?

Secrets and Lies…

Everyone has them. Big ones. Little ones.

For Trevor Mayne and Jamie Vaughn, secrets and lies are how they’ve made their fourteen year friendship work. Don’t talk about it. Ignore it and it won’t be real. Pretend like everything’s fine between the two of them.

Jamie can’t live like this anymore. He’s in love with Trevor, his best friend who just happens to be straight. Tired of hiding his feelings, he decides to walk away. From their friendship. From his hometown. From his business.

But before Jamie gets a chance to leave, a freak accident leaves Trevor with amnesia. A new blank perspective leaves him confused about the inconsistencies of what he’s told his life should be vs. the feelings that he knows he has. Now those secrets and lies, that should be safer than ever, are suddenly front and center and changing everything between them.

Their world is at risk because their secrets and lies aren’t the only ones at play here. There’s a bigger lie out there and it could just destroy everything as they get closer and closer to the secret hidden in depths of the Snowcroft forest.

Best Female Country Artist. Sold out world-wide tour. Record-setting album sales. It’s been a stellar year for Skye Martin and it’s left her exhausted. All she wants to do is go home to Oklahoma, curl up in her little house, and veg out in pj’s with a pile of junk food. But when her tour bus crashes in the middle of West Texas, her priorities suddenly shift. Now she’s sitting bedside hoping her best friend and bodyguard, KC, survives. 

For Scott Martin, he simply wants this horrible year to end. After the murder of his brother, his family is falling apart. With one crisis after another pulling him back to the family ranch, he’s put way too many late night miles on his truck between his family home and Lubbock, where he works as a paramedic. When he comes upon the wrecked tour bus, he has no idea this is one emergency which will change his life forever.

Skye and Scott quickly form a friendship which hints at possibilities of more. But as these two dodge paparazzi, over-zealous label executives, and stalker fans, they soon discover that everything is easier when you have someone you love RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE. And that becomes even more important when they discover the bus wreck wasn’t an accident…

An Author's Reference Library....

This household is made up of voracious readers. As such, our library has always been fairly eclectic, but as I look at my writer's reference library...and these are just the books that I'm reading for reference on books I will be writing over the next year...it occurs to me that our library is becoming more and more eclectic.

And this is just the library. You should see my google search variety! O.O The subjects cover police work, self-defense, motorcycle gangs, life in the music world, wicca, and GLBT. Lots of interesting stuff in all that...some I hope to infuse into my writing along the way.

BTW, a quick writing update. Currently I am working on first drafts of two novels:

1. THROUGH THE VEIL....this was slated to be released Nov/Dec. I'm pretty sure that timeframe is going to slip back. This book is the first in a seven book paranormal romantic suspense series so it's very important that I get all the groundwork laid out right for the whole series. I am so freaking excited about this book and series. I've plotted and have titles for all SEVEN books and am itching to write ALL of them NOW! LOL...but I have several other series to work on right now too.

2. SNOWCROFT LOST....this is my NaNoWriMo novel (50,000 words in the month of November) and is my full length m/m romantic suspense. So far, the writing on it is going REALLY well...it's at 20,000 words this morning.

Other books coming soon:

3. RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE...the first book in the Martin Ranch series. Romantic suspense featuring Scott Martin (paramedic) and Skye (country western singer). This book hasn't been started yet, but is slated for May, 2014 release.

4. MUDFLAP UNDERCOVER...book #2 in the Mudflap series...this time our spies are going undercover into the motorcycle club world (several of the research books up there). This book hasn't been started yet, but is slated for August, 2014 release. Like with book #1, all the proceeds will benefit the Lubbock, TX Red Cross.


I do have one more release coming out this year. A short little m/m Christmas novella from Decadent's 1NS series called THE CHRISTMAS TOP. I don't have the exact release date yet, but it should be sometime before Christmas.

Thank you!! Helping the Red Cross

This morning I got to do one of the most awesome things I've ever had the opportunity to do as an author.

I sent a $3110.06 check to the Lubbock Red Cross.


Because you all bought


Thank You!!

So, have you bought a copy of Mudflap yet??

If not, it's not too late.

All the proceeds from the sale of this book....whenever they happen,

will go to the South Plains Chapter of the American Red Cross

(that's the Lubbock, TX chapter where the book takes place.)

The e-book only costs $2.99.

And here are all the buy links for it:

To us, first responders are heroes. But for them, risking their lives is a normal, everyday thing.

Born the baby of the family, Mudflap has always had something to prove to emerge out of the shadows of his older siblings. He spent eight years as a Special Ops elite sniper and is now a firefighter. But at his heart, he’s just a normal West Texas good old boy who loves his beer, women and football, until the Department of Defense calls him up to say they need his skills again.

Shanae is a first responder of a different sort. She’s a trauma nurse who works on a medical evacuation helicopter team. But while she lives a life full of adrenaline every day, it’s just a cover for her real life, where she hides in the shadows and is secret agent, Shadowfox for the Lubbock Foxtrot Team (LiFT). She’s living the kind of life that most people think exists only in movies and books.

Working for two different branches of the government, Mudflap and Shanae are in a race against time and the terrorists who threaten the very heart of West Texas life, football. They’re working toward the same goal, but find themselves in a confrontation against each other and the lies they’ve each had to hide behind. Can love win out in the end or will the cost be each other and their very lives?

First responders are heroes every day, but this story tells the tale of when they become even more and find love along the way. The key is for them to stay alive so that they can complete their mission and just maybe live happily ever after.

On an ordinary day, they save lives. On an extraordinary day, they save the country.
