After 600 reviews averaging 4+ stars, readers have a common comment: Jordan! Possessive or Caring, you decide...


Jordan had his arm latched around her waist. “It sort of reminds me of our first anniversary, the cruise to San Juan, only safer. I never felt comfortable there.”
She laughed. “Exactly where do you feel comfortable?” She leaned back against his chest as they marveled at the street performers who painted and danced for money.
He tightened his grip around her and nuzzled her neck, laughing too. “That’s true. When I have such a precious commodity that I’m in charge of protecting, how can I relax?”
“You’re so silly, Jordan. I don’t think anyone is going to try to run off with me.”
He kissed the top of her head. “They’ll be sorry if they try.”
She sighed. She never had to worry when he was with her. Jordan would always protect her. She’d never fretted wherever they went, even Puerto Rico. She knew nobody would take him on.

After reading the 600-plus reviews--just on Amazon; there are two hundred more on iTunes and B&N--there seems to be a common comment: Jordan! My first beloved male protagonist. 

Some say possessive, some say protective. Some think he’s overbearing, others say, “Where can I get me a 'Jordan'?”

Well, I wrote Jordan, and I know what kind of man he is, so I’ll just say this: Jordan’s a cop. Cops see things differently from the rest of us. How do I know this? Simple, I married a cop!

I'll warn you ahead of time. Jordan's caring, he's romantic, he's a deadly weapon, and he's protective. No, he isn't domineering. No, he doesn't make his woman do strange sexual things. He simply knows what he wants, and he goes after it.

He believes in God, he's a self-made man, he's a southern boy who takes care of his grandmother, mother, and sisters... Do I need to go on?

If he sounds like your type of man, go ahead and download She Belongs to Me. But remember, even though he's a character, he's still a man. And I did title the novel She Belongs to Me for a reason ;)

Oh...and in case you miss the description on the book sites, She Belongs to Me is a romantic-suspense whodunit, which means it has romance, mystery, and a thread of suspense twining throughout the entire novel. So if you don't like your mystery/suspense dipped in deep, rich romance, please don't read, because it's sensual and romantic. Oh, and it's not a Christian book, in fact, some readers have accused me of writing 'mommy porn' (I assure you I don't), but I've also been attacked for sharing my main characters' Christian beliefs. Why...because it lends to the character's--well...character. So, there you have it...all my disclosures. :)

Whew...who knew one character could offend so many people, and yet so many more could fall in love with him. I guess that makes Jordan real. If you're still here and have decided you want to know more, please, by all means, download my first novel; I truly hope you enjoy it. That's the only reason I write, to provide readers with a few hours of escape.

Until next time, happy reading!


She Belongs to Me is available to download absolutely FREE at most major book retailers...

"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
