COMING SOON – Pre-order a steamy rom com!

Hi, readers! I have a new release coming up in March. Don’t miss this one!

Chasing Ginger is the start of a new series, and a little different than my usual books. As a big fan of romantic comedies, I decided to take what I knew about the genre, add an even sexier spin, with the backdrop of a truly farfetched situation, and throw in a plus-sized heroine. Yep, there’s some pretty foul language too…check it out!

Myah Sullivan is suddenly living that nightmare. There are Others in the world, dangerous, supernatural creatures that make her mind spin and cause her to question the reality she’s always known.

Oliver King is her savior, a vampire who tries to show her the way. Through her journey she learns far more than she ever thought she would about herself, and about the past. Soon, she discovers that there is so much more to meeting Oliver than mere happenstance.

Can Myah accept her new reality, or will she retreat into that normal, safe world she once thought was her own?
