I just got out of my car and went into the house, praying she was home. There was no sign of her. What the hell was going on? My pulse was beating at an alarming rate, and an overwhelming fear had taken up residence inside of me.
I saw the envelope on the table with a sheet of paper lying on top of it. Swallowing hard, I picked up the paper up to read it. I could see dried spots where tears had obviously fallen on it as she written it. In my gut, I knew I didn’t really want to read her words.
I put my head in my hands, feeling broken, and the most alone I’d ever felt in my entire life. My world had imploded. The hell of it was I had no idea how the fuck I was going to fix it. One thing I knew for sure was I had to find Hope. I had to explain and beg her to understand.
Keri had just taken away the one thing I cherished and loved the most. How could one person be so cruel and vindictive? She left me completely gutted and my heart ripped out.

I am an author that hails from the Midwest and currently resides in Iowa. My first foray into book writing was in 2001-2002, and the manuscript was destroyed in a move and it took me several years to attempt it again. I have been writing little poems, journals, and anecdotes for many years. Currently I write in the Contemporary Romance genre and am currently venturing into the Military Romance genre. I like to write characters and stories that are relatable and that readers can connect with. Drawing on personal experiences or observations tend to make it in my work in some way. My first published book, Starting Over, was released in May 2015 and then was re-released in October 2015 when I signed with Gone Writing Publishing. Starting Over is the first of three in a series and book two is tentatively scheduled for release in late December 2015 under GWP as well. Starting Over is very much a second chance love story. To interact with me I can be found on Twitter, Facebook, & Instagram. For information about upcoming signing events and updated release dates please visit my website. There are a few surprises in store with my current work in progress and I hope that everyone will enjoy them. I am very passionate when it comes to our Armed Forces and our Veteran’s and feel they deserve the absolute best. Having spent some time in the military myself, several family members have served previously, I spent several years as a military spouse, and I am also a very proud Army mom of a current soldier and soon to be soldier. I guess you could say that they went into the family business.
