"Would she consider that he was stalking her?" Excerpt from ENTANGLED DREAMS

This is just a teaser. If you missed the first few excerpts of Entangled Dreams, you can read the first three chapters here. Don't worry; there's a link, which will bring you right back.

If you've been keeping up with Entangled Dreams, you know that our female protagonist, Alexandra Nicole "Nicky", has lost both of her parents and is in a worthless relationship.
Desperate to feel anything but pain for one night, Alexandra hopped on the back of the motorcycle of a handsome stranger (Cameron), but then disappeared the next morning. Cameron let her walk out of his house without a word, but it looks as though he’s having second thoughts.




Cameron parked in the furthest reaches of the parking lot, waiting to see if her boyfriend would show. His hope escalated as he witnessed Alexandra standing outside, waiting.

She removed her barrette and combed her fingers through her beautiful, blonde curls. Then, those same delicate fingers fiddled with her phone. Texting him, he realized. He’d give him ten minutes before he approached; he definitely didn’t need to get in a scuffle. Just the idea of her with someone else angered him.

Within five minutes of her text, he arrived. Cameron had prayed the loser wouldn’t show, but evidently, her plan had worked. Had she confessed to him about their evening together? Had she told him how she’d used another man to make him jealous?

Sadness enveloped him, but it didn’t matter. He knew tomorrow would be the same. Would she consider that he was stalking her? Is that what he was doing? No, he just wanted to make sure she got home safely. And have an opportunity to speak with her if possible. He wondered what day she had off.

Sullenly, he watched as tonight she got behind the wheel and pulled out of the parking lot as if she were angry at the world.

What I write:


While I do not write "Christian" books, I do share my characters' Christian beliefs. My characters are real people who come with real flaws; no perfect people allowed.


I characterize my stories as modern-day fairytales, as they are overflowing 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.


Both of my published novels, She Belongs to Me and Land of the Noonday Sun, have reached bestseller status right alongside Nicholas Sparks, J.D. Robb, and other great authors. My third novel, Entangled Dreams, releases this month.


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









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. To bad he didn't man up and walk over there. Hey, what girl doesn't like a good scuffle in her honor? LOL, just kidding. Hang in there Cameron, I've got a feeling your day will come!

"As in any fairytale, everything good must come to an end." ENTANGLED DREAMS:

Now, if you’ve read any of my novels or excerpts, you know I don’t do happy-go-lucky beginnings; and as in any fairytale, a little rain must fall, or in the case of my stories, I prefer a monsoon. This week’s excerpt: But alas, as in any good fairytale, everything good and wonderful must come to an end. After the tragic accident that snatched her mother away from Alexandra, her father moved them away from the beaches of Destin to another beach in Florida. Cocoa Beach. Cocoa Beach was loud, the water murky, and there were no weekend adventures as there had been in Destin. Her father married her evil stepmother, Lilith, who Alexandra was certain was a witch with her long, black as midnight hair and pale-white skin as if she’d never seen sunlight. Her father had admitted he wasn’t in love with Cruella, as she had come to think of the witchy woman, but that he’d wanted Alexandra to have a mother and siblings. Well, she definitely got that. The k

To prologue or not to prologue, that is the question. Readers, please weigh in!

Personally, I love prologues. They get you right into the action whether it was in the past or something exciting that is to come. But that’s exactly why most agents’ blogs I’ve read say not to use them. Paraphrasing…“If you need a prologue, then your story must not be strong enough…” Hmm … well, I like them, and I use them. But I’m curious what readers think, and I’d love you to weigh in. AND, if you have some great examples, please leave the title in the comment section. Now … here’s what I’ve noticed. Plenty of bestselling books have used them, even though they aren’t always called prologues . Same diff in my opinion. My biggest example is ‘Twilight’. If that little blurb wasn’t in the beginning, I don’t think I would have made it through the first chapter. How about movies? I don’t watch a lot. But I’ve started to notice how many have “prologues”. I also don’t have cable, but I have NetFlix, and hubby has just started watching ‘Breaking Bad’. Okay … I

The rule of thirds: No matter what you do, someone will hate you. Get over it and Write On!

No matter what you do in life, a third of the people will love you, a third will hate you, and the rest will be indifferent. Get over it and Write On! Yes, I'm talking to myself. If you're listening, GREAT! It's good advice! Is it easy advice? Heck No! For some reason, even though that percentage is rather low on my books--the percentage of people who hate my books runs about 4.6%--it still hurts.  Note: I only averaged the 'firsts' in my books, the books I actively promote. Because if I go to the second, third, and fourth books in my series, those numbers drop drastically. Obviously, if readers don't like my first book, they don't go on to the rest of my books in a series, so those books receive little to zero one-star reviews. So...if the number of one-star reviews we receive is less than five percent--Thank God ALL of the 33 1/3% of the haters don't write reviews--why do we get so depressed when we receive a one-star review
