Current Release: Crazy for the Competition

What's your book about?

The road to trouble is paved with sweet temptation...

Always the rebel in her ultra-conservative family, Quinn Sakata dreams of quitting her dad's real-estate business and restoring the old Mountain Ridge Bed and Breakfast in her hometown of Hope Springs. Except that Quinn's not the only person bidding on it. Worse still, her competitor is her high school crush, Heath Brantley, who is all kinds of ripped, tattooed hotness...

So much for her "nice, conservative boys" rule.

Heath has his own reasons for bidding on Mountain Ridge, and he won't give in without a fight - even to the red-lipped hottie with a sailor's mouth. But when their rivalry shifts into an unexpected zing of chemistry, Heath realizes he's in deep trouble. Because it's inevitable that emotions will get involved, and he needs to keep his eyes on the prize before they both get hurt.

What should readers expect from you titles?

To laugh & swoon.

What's next for you as an author?

I'm going to be writing another book in the Hope Springs series, as well as another NA book to follow up Getting Lucky Number Seven. That should keep me busy for a while.

What is your favorite way to procrastinate?

Pinterest. Although how am I supposed to describe hot guys without researching hot guys first? LOL

What's a writing day like for you?

A lot of Mtn Dew & telling myself I have to get off Twitter. It takes me a bit to get going, because of my aversion to mornings in general, but once I get down to it, I have a daily word count goal & I push myself to reach it. Which sometimes requires more Mtn Dew & chocolate.

Do you feel music has inspired your writing?

Tons! I have playlists for every book. The music & songs bleed onto the page, from the lyrics to the emotion.

What is your favorite or most fun place to shop online?

Steve Madden! I've often said I need to break up with him because I spend & spend & he just keeps asking me to spend more. Only the pretty shoes make it impossible to say no.

Wrapping Up:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Keep a look out for the next book in my Hope Springs series, and if you like cowboys, make sure to check out the first book, Second Chance Ranch.
