Thank you, @dmoncrief0131, for the honor. Okay...I'll share some info and pass along to...

My wonderful blog friend, Denise Moncrief at Suspense She Writes, passed on this award to me. I never, ever do these, Denise. Simply for lack of time, but…I’m going to follow through on this one, and now I can’t say never, ever anymore. J

Five of my most fabulous moments:

1. When my husband-to-be walked up to me and said, “Hey, where’s your stepsister?” I was mad at her for dragging me out to party and then leaving me, so I pointed her out across the room and said, “Over there. What’s wrong with me?” We were married one month later and have been married twenty-two years for those of you who don’t believe in “love at first sight” or “happily ever after”. J

2. When my son was born (I thought I couldn’t have kids).

3. When my second son was born and he was only one (They thought I might be having twins).

4. When I became a published author.

5. When my first novel hit bestseller in “paid” right alongside Nicholas Sparks.

Five things I love.

1. God

2. My husband

3. My children

(the three above are the reasons I can write)

4. Writing and reading (they are one in the same in my mind)

5. My memory (because I never forget anything)

Five things I hate.

1. My memory (because I never forget anything)

2. Child abuse

2. Narcissism

3. Fake people

4. Not having enough time to read

5. Being behind all the time

About me:

I write modern-day fairytales filled with romance, mystery, suspense, and of course, tragedy. After all, what would a fairytale be without a tragic event setting the stage? All of my novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping but not graphic and will hopefully make you cry, laugh, love, and hope.

I love talking about all things books, so please connect with me via one of the links below.

Books available:

When two strangers have nothing left but their dreams, they must forge a relationship in Nantahala, North Carolina, a small town known as Land of the Noonday Sun.

After secrets and a mysterious background leave a wife’s life hanging by a thread, a husband must look for answers in the only place he knows—the past.

Now available at:

And coming soon, Entangled Dreams


  1. Thank you! I have just paid it forward!

    1. You are so good. You didn't even stomp your feet at me. I did. Did you see my last hate? That's why. LOL! Have a great weekend, MJ. :)
