What would you like to tell readers about yourself?
* Let’s see here…I am a big fan of the stars (especially Orion), honest music (especially Depeche Mode), and my traveling family (no favorites there-I love them all). These things have always inspired me to think up edgy, intimate love stories and continue to do so. If I could touch someone’s heart with my writing the way others have done for me, I’d say truly there never lived a luckier girl.
What book are you going to tell us about today? Is it part of a series? If so, what's the order the books should be read in?
* Today I’m sharing my first published book, Sidewalk Flower. So far it’s a single title but we’ll see. There’s definite series potential with the incorrigible members of the band, Sin Pointe.
How'd you/your muse come up with this story?
* Yay! I’m so glad you asked this. A little while back, I had the opportunity to hang out backstage with the security manager for one of my favorite bands. While Sidewalk Flower is completely fictional, the experience of seeing how things worked backstage on a tour was very powerful for me.
Describe the hero in five words.
* Humble, Yummy, Ambitious, Blond, Country
Describe the heroine in five words.
* Jaded, Instinctual, Loyal, Fighter, Wounded
Who's your favorite character in the book & why?
* I love Trista. She was so patient with me for several years. It took a very long time to find a guy strong enough for her. I think we’re all happy now though.
What's your favorite line in the story?
* The girl who played with boys but was never fazed by them was staring at him like he was her guardian angel and she was his beauty school dropout.
A look into the story
* But, she’s seen too many good guys succumb to the harsh realities of her supposed privileged life in the music business and intends on keeping her distance.
* When she picks up Lucky, the southern gentleman cousin of her selfish best friend, she has absolutely no idea of how to accept a perfectly good person with good intentions. Home has never looked so good, or felt so far away.
* This girl was in trouble.
* He should have stepped away for both their sakes. He knew he didn’t deserve this kind of kiss, not yet. But California was glued to him on full speed and didn’t appear to have a pause, let alone a rewind button. On second thought, he’d let her get this out of her system and then they’d start over.
* Her hand had to be killing her, so he managed to pull it down and keep it tucked at her side. But the other one was petting those hairs at the back of his neck, leaving him seconds away from coming undone. If he clenched his jaw any tighter, those painful yet ticklish sensations shooting throughout his upper body would without a doubt get him into trouble down below. Heck, if he squeezed her in his arms like he wanted to, she’d feel how aroused he’d let himself get. He worked his jaw to ease away from the pain, wishing he could let go entirely and enjoy her touch. Yep, their fresh start was gonna have to wait until she was done proving her point. Cute girl though.

* His lips were soft and salty like he’d worked up a sweat at some point during the day. Crap, again she cursed his damn tempting bloodline. This would only complicate their pending trip even more. So naturally, when he smartly pulled her one hand away, she found a sweet spot of baby hairs with the other and went for more. Her rules—that was the only way to play with the boys and stay safe.
