“I really can’t stay…, but baby it’s cold outside…”  – Dinah Shore and Buddy Clark (One of my FAVORITE Christmas songs!)

I hope you’re staying nice and warm! Where I am, it was a total blizzard this morning! We southerners are not equip for this type of weather! LOL! Burrrrr!!!

I wanted to give you all a quick update. “A Dance in December” did exceptionally well! Thank you to everyone who bought a copy! I appreciate your love and support!

 
I currently have two NEW works in progress, yet revisiting one old project. The latest piece is a novella, and the other is a screenplay. I’m tackling the screenplay firsauthort for a contest. This will be my first one–wish me luck! The old project I’m revisiting is a full manuscript, a little over 64,000 words and it is an adult novel. I’m attempting to get enough moola together and get the whole thing edited by an editor I REALLY like! 🙂 This manuscript has been complete for two years. I would really LOVE it if I could get this out of my hands and into the lap of an agent! The title is, “Truthful Lies”. I may give you a sneak peek on here… STAY TUNED!

Lots of plates spinning in 2017!

Be on the lookout–there’s more to come! I promise!

Evelyn Vanderbilt found something else to make her blood heat this Christmas season besides the eggnog and her annoying little sisters… a model. Evelyn spent her entire life being compared to her younger sisters. Not only did they receive all-star everything growing up, they even got married before she did.

Now at every family function they are eager to rub it in her face. Evelyn would rather curl up with a cup of apple cider and a good book and ignore this holiday season but now her mother has jumped on the husband bandwagon.

While out Christmas shopping she bumps into Brett Mansdell the professional male model. Instead of him being the arrogant playboy, he turns out to be Mr. Nice Guy. Evelyn tells her sisters who she met and they laugh claiming she is lying.

When Brett shows up unexpectedly and takes her out to see the annual Christmas light show leaving her sisters dumbfounded, they have a wonderful time and share a kiss. Brett leaves the next day and Evelyn tells herself it was only one kiss and he’d forget all about her. She can’t decide which will hurt more. Risking her heart to be with someone who takes her breath away or being at more family gatherings where she feels like she’s suffocating.

New Book Release

My new short story, “A Slow Dance for Christmas” will be released on December 23, 2016. It is a young adult short story, and follows 12-year-old Samira at her Winter Wonderland Dance. All this stylish, yet bashful tween wants this holiday season is one slow dance. Just one. And hopefully, with the boy of her dreams. Carter Ward. But he doesn’t even know she exists! Or does he? With the help of her beloved, and sometimes annoying best friend, Nakia, Samira may get more than just a dance for Christmas…

This book will be available via paperback and e-book.
