A Savage Ghost
Lia Savage reluctantly puts her dream of opening a dessert boutique on hold to help her dad remodel a castle he’s inherited in Washington State. Soon, a specter targets her younger sister.
Lia enlists the help of strapping Coop Montgomery, the head gardener and her former crush. As they search together for a way to rid the castle of its ghost, the romance she used to dream about with Coop kindles.
But Lia’s gentle giant means to stay in Washington while she’s determined to return to California. She must find the courage to face both the ghost and her future.
With Coop. Or without him.
Waves of Deceit
Twenty-six-year-old Shelby Nash wants to break free of her controlling, billionaire father. With the completion of one more project for his company, she can branch out on her own. However, her ex-boyfriend’s been appointed as the new lead architect. She has to find a way to protect her heart from him while avoiding whoever’s making anonymous threats.
Wade Masters did a poor job handling the news about the identity of his girlfriend’s father. Shelby walked out of his life without another word. Finally, four years later, Wade has a chance to win her back. As long as whoever’s targeted her doesn’t get her first.
Q&A With The Author:
When did you start writing, and was there a specific event or person who influenced you to become an author? I’ve been an avid reader since I was quite young and have always entertained myself making up my own stories. I decided to give writing a full-length novel in a personal NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in January of 2010, just to see if I could. I wrote 80,000 words that month and have been hooked ever since.
Are you currently working on a project, and if so, can you tell us anything about it? I’m working on a Victorian Time Travel story, Against the Magic, with three other authors. We went to England in the spring for research. It was so much fun!
What is your favorite writing snack? Light cheesesticks and Cherry Coke Zero.
If you could have dinner with any of your characters, which ones would you choose? Why? What food would you serve? I’d go to a family reunion at Randolph Ranch in Montana (from my Safe Harbors series) when their American Samoa rescuers join the family and friends. With the large front lawn with great shade trees, Jack Randolphs smoker barbeque, horses to ride, and the comfortable camaraderie of people who really like each other, I would be one happy girl.
Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it? I did some research on Williamsburg for A Savage Ghost and would love to visit that historic venue someday.
How do you relax, or what do you enjoy doing when you are not writing? I’m an online gamer, and my favorite game right now is League of Legends. I use it as the “carrot” (reward) for when I accomplish certain tasks, writing related. I also play while I walk on the treadmill. Fastest 30-45 minutes ever!
What is your largest unfulfilled dream, and what are you doing to reach it? I’m a Navy brat and spend a lot of my youth growing up in Asia. I would love to travel to some of the countries I visited to see how much they’ve changed. South Korea, for example, is incredibly sophisticated and technologically advanced now.
What do you fear most? Losing loved ones. My mother died when I was fourteen, and I was widowed at twenty-six. I have a belief in an afterlife, so I don’t fear for them being wiped from existence, but I know from sad experience how hard it is to be left behind.
What advice would you give someone who wants to write a book some day? Just do it! Consider signing up for NaNoWriMo this November and just see if they can do.
