Cherish Release Date

Hi Everyone,

Cherish has a release date.

5 February 2014.

I’m so excited.

The official long blurb for the book follows:

Cherish Blurb

Sixteen-year-old Sarah Parker’s healing touch can bring beings back to life, provided they haven’t crossed over. Until now she’s managed to keep her Gift a secret, but somebody seems determined to expose her and get her back into St. Mary’s Orphanage. Four years ago, Sarah was an orphan at St.Mary’s who’d lost hope of ever being adopted and faced the gruesome Ludus until Ida showed up. She’s lived a dream life since then but Sarah senses something is amiss. She has pretty much settled into her “new life” when cracks appear in her comfort zone. The last thing Sarah wants is to return to St. Mary’s.

When Marcus David, her boyfriend, is accused of murdering a student and her foster mom Ida is attacked shortly thereafter, Sarah’s deepest fears materialize. She loses Ida and Marcus in one breath and returns to St. Mary’s. There’s no escaping the Ludus and the wrath of her newfound enemies. As Sarah readjusts to St. Mary’s, she learns the orphanage holds crucial secrets to her past.


#Sexy Sunday Snippet

Hi Everyone,

Here is my sexy Sunday snippet from Moving In which is with my fabulous editor, Haleigh Rucinski. Enjoy.

Jason pats my shoulder. “You need a workout, Dean.”
He hits the gym if anything minutely epic stresses him out. He could pass for a WWE superstar but his thick glasses and shaggy, blonde hair’s flopping over his forehead adds the nerd aspect to his look.
“Don’t take it personally. You know how these journalist types are always looking for a story to sensationalize.”
“She’s a blogger,” I correct, “Not a journalist. Besides I don’t care what she fucking calls herself. She thinks she knows it all about when she knows zilch.” Besides her bull shit blog post has probably given my mother enough reason to resume her Prozac diet. Lace Higgins’ unleashed a lethal storm when she updated her blog last night.
Jason pats me on the shoulder. “You need to work your anger off. Too much anger isn’t good for the soul.”
“Fuck my soul. I’m going to find that two bit cyber celebrity and teach her a lesson she’ll never forget.”
Jason grimaces. “Exactly what do you plan on saying to her?”
I shrug. I’m sure my brown eyes are blood shot with anger by now. I must resemble a maniac after an adrenaline rush.
“How about mind your own fucking business?”
Jason grins. “It’s a start although you might want to tone it down and eliminate the profanity.” He’s a gentleman under any circumstance.
“The swearing stays. It’ll help me make my point.” I clench and unclench my fists. “I’m not going to find her and then sweet talk her into apologizing.”
“So what’s the point of finding her then?”
I glare at Jace. “Dude, which part of I’m going to teach her a lesson haven’t you understood?”
Jason grins. “What if she’s as hot as hell and blows your mind?”
“Puh – leaze. I’ll bet she’s some overweight chick who wears prescription glasses and gossips about people in my position on her blog just to get attention.”
Jason laughs and shakes his head. “Lace Higgins is actually quite intelligent. I’m not sure what made her blog about you.”
I shoot Jason a sour look. “What the fuck are you trying to say, huh? Am I not worth blogging about? Are you trying to say I’m dumb?”

#Sunday #Snippet

Hi Everyone,

Here’s my #Sunday snippet from the revised Moving In series. Enjoy.

I hold the phone away from my ears and sigh. She can be so melodramatic. “He said he doesn’t want to ruin our friendship,” I repeat.
“Fuck,” she screams, “I can’t believe he used the F word.”
“Who used it, baby?” Zane asks in the background.
“Lace’s would be boyfriend,” she replies.
Would be isn’t happening. Alison may hit the roof if I say it out loud.
“What did you say to him?” she demands.
“Nothing…his phone rang and when he came back to the living room he mentioned the F word.” As far as I can remember nothing else happened.
“Who called him?” Alison shouts into the phone.
“He didn’t say and I didn’t ask.”
“Are you freakin’ out of your mind? He’s living under your roof and you don’t know who calls him?” If her voice gets any louder my handset is going to burst.
Okay, then. Alison expects me to stalk him?
“Sounds risky,” Zane says, “a girl should know everything going on in her house.”
Zane so doesn’t know when to shut up.
“Yeah, baby,” she agrees. “That’s what I’ve been trying to tell her all along.” She shifts her attention to me.

#Cherish swag Donation and Scintillating Saturday Sneak Peek

Hi Everyone.

I personalized a few notebooks to donate to a Mom and her kids. I’ve attached the pics.

Also I’ve decided to share a scintillating Saturday excerpt from Cherish. And if you’d like to receive any Swag from me – I have tattoos, bracelets and personalized notebooks to give away – then email me @

I look forward to hearing from you.


“Goths and vampires bond for life.” Pri gestures dramatically. “It’s not easy letting outsiders into their world. They need people they can trust. People who won’t sell them out.”

“So who did you hang out with?” Marcus keeps his voice casual.

Pri sighs dreamily. “The Prince of Darkness. I swear he’s like my soul mate or something.”

“The Prince of Darkness? Um…is he famous or what?” Andy stares at Pri.

“A.K.A. Armando Perez.”

I freeze. The same Armando Perez I silently drooled over this morning. If Marcus weren’t in the picture, I’d have definitely crushed on Armando.


Six Sentence Sunday

Hi Everyone,

I almost forgot about today’s Six Sentence Sunday.

Here is a taste of Beast Next Door, a sexy YA read out on query:
“I’m your angel. Yeah.

Your freakin’ Angel. Yeah.

So come one and give it to me…Yeah.”

She calls that a song.

  I have no idea what her name is but the girl next door is either delusional or really optimistic to think those lyrics will get her into any rock song writing contest.

  Or magically turn her into a rock star.
