About For Everly.

Determined to overcome a dark and tragic past, college student Everly Wallace is only months away from earning her degree in physical therapy. She’s consumed with school, caring for her ailing grandfather, and figuring out how to pay the next bill. The last thing she wants is a relationship, but it just might be the one thing she needs.

Major League pitcher Cole Parker hasn’t fought for anything in his life. He went from a privileged upbringing to a multimillion dollar All-Star career. But when his pitching shoulder starts to give him trouble at only twenty-four years old, he faces the possibility of his injury becoming public knowledge and costing him everything.

In a desperate bid to save his career, Cole decides to hire someone to treat his injury, someone who will keep things off the record and out of the media. He finds the perfect solution in Everly. As mysterious as she is beautiful, she provides an enticing distraction from his pain. Soon, physical therapy is the last thing on his mind.

When an act of betrayal brings the truths they both fear to light, Cole will have to fight for the first time in his life…not just for his career, but for Everly’s love.

About Meant for Her.

Photographer Sierra Stratton views the world through a lens all her own. She has an uncanny sense about people, something that often causes her trouble. When she meets the sexy and brooding Evan Dorsey, her intuition tells her he’s suffering, and she wants to be the one to help him.

Evan isn’t open to help from anyone, however. His focus is on his Major League career and making himself as marketable as possible for his upcoming free agency. He plans to ride out the season in Atlanta and then sign with another team, away from the painful memories that haunt him.

Someone’s eager to send him on his way, too. Between anonymous threats and equipment sabotage, it’s clear he’s earned himself an enemy along the way. To him, it’s one more sign that he’s right to move on.

But Sierra threatens his conviction. Her contagious smile proves hard to resist, as does her kiss. She tempts him in ways he never anticipated, making him question his plans for the first time. If he’s not careful, she might just convince him that he’s meant for her.

If You’ve Been Wondering, Yes…I’m Alive and Writing!

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

Chocolate I can't eat since I'm dieting. Oh, sweet chocolate!

It’s been weeks since I last posted something related to my writing, and I figured it was past time I did so. Considering it’s the “Day-o-Love,” it seemed right to mention what I’ve been working on since Elder was published.

Here’s the thing: I’ve had this story in my head about a guy named Parish. He’s truly awesome and has overcome a rather tragic back story. He’s got this cool love interest named Azure, too. She’s kick-ass and gives him more than a run for his money. They’re crazy-good at solving crimes in their time, which is a couple of hundred years in the future.

I got as far as building the world they live in when I got stuck. I don’t know why, as I can see them quite clearly in my head. But I had trouble with the specific elements of their society. What is their government like? What currency do they use? How do people make their livings?

It was while I considered these elements that the story I’m about to write came to me. These two stories are notably different. One is a futuristic thriller series; the other, a contemporary New Adult romance.

Say what??

Ask anyone who knows me and you’ll discover that I insisted I would never write a New Adult book. I was concerned about the graphic nature of many NA stories, and I didn’t want to alienate my fans. I’ve since discovered that NA books only have to be as graphic as the author wants.

In other words, never say never.

I couldn’t get this story out of my head. Where I usually have some struggles fleshing out character sketches and completing outlines, these flowed for me. I can only deduce now that this is the story I’m meant to write right now.

That said, I’d like to introduce you to the two main characters in my upcoming release, For Everly. Their story is ready to be written, and I can assure you in the name of Valentine’s Day that it will be a romance to remember! I hope you’ll let me know what you think of these early tidbits. For now, here are my mini-interviews with the characters…

Everly Inspiration Pic (Barbara Meier)

What’s your name? Everly Wallace.

Cool name! And how old are you? Thanks. I’m 22.

What do you do for a living? First and foremost, I’m a student. I’m working on my doctorate in Physical Therapy at Georgia State University. I was lucky enough to earn a graduate assistanceship to pay for my tuition, so that keeps me busy. I also wait tables at a high-end restaurant in Atlanta called Prix Fixe. When I have time, I like to volunteer at a local center for sports rehab.

You sure sound busy! Do you have a family or love interest who makes balancing that schedule difficult? Not really. My granddad and I live in the same house, and I don’t have any other close family or friends to detract from my professional goals.

That’s a lot of academic focus. Do you have any hobbies? Well, I like to cook and listen to music. I’m also a huge baseball fan. It helps that I live within walking distance of the ballpark downtown.

I’d love to live there! Can you share a little about your back story? That’s a no. I don’t share details about my past with just anyone. If readers want to know more, they’ll have to pick up a copy of For Everly.

~     ~     ~

All righty, then. Thanks for your time, Everly! We can all appreciate your privacy. Why don’t we turn our attention to the other main character in the story?

Cole Inspiration Pic (Jordan Carlyle)

What’s your name? Cole Parker. Nice to meet you.

The pleasure’s all mine! How old are you, Cole? I’m 24…but I’m not against dating above my age, if you’re asking.

I wasn’t, but it seems that’s the type of questioning you’re used to. Am I right? Hey, I don’t kiss and tell. Next question?

All right. What do you do for a living? Haven’t you heard of me? I’m a professional baseball player.

Awesome! What position? I’m a pitcher.

That’s cool. How long have you been in the “bigs?” I was drafted right out of high school and started in the minors. I’ve been starting in the majors for four years. As a matter of fact, my contract is up for renewal.

Wow. Sounds like a lot of pressure. Are you ready for it? Guess folks will have to read For Everly to find out. *wink*

Fair enough! Thanks so much to Everly and Cole for participating. I hope you enjoyed their interviews and that you’ll let me know what you think in the comments. Don’t eat too much chocolate today!
