This Book Is In Development
One night can change everything... Someone once told me that there are worst things than being left at the altar. Well, not many, in my experience. That was six months ago, though, and my life has moved on. Heck, I have a new job lined up and I'm leaving town. But, I can't deny that my love life kind of sucks.That's why I let my friends convince me to join them for Club Escapade's Breakup Bash. And we might just be disillusioned enough to actually enjoy it. Last time we were here, it was for my bachelorette party. That night, I met one of the dancers – Raphael – and when he flirted with me, I almost forgot I was engaged. And there's a part of me that never forgot him.Now, it seems my friends have wandered off and I'm thinking about calling it a night. Until the music begins and I see Raphael, my secret fantasy, on stage. And this time, I'm definitely not engaged...
Yes, there is a lot of pressure to create the right opening for a book. For me, those first chapters are an invitation for the reader to keep going. They are a promise of an interesting ride with characters they will want to meet. And possibly even fall in love with. I strive to set the tone for the story and give insight into the world that will unfold throughout the pages.

Will this unlikely pair discover that the sparks between them are anything but an act?
In the Cowboy’s Claim, Tristan and Chloe find it hard to agree on anything, including their feelings for each other. But a truce and a kiss open a door to the unexpected. I can relate to their experience of moving forward and encountering the unexpected. Deciding to write a small-town romance trilogy wasn’t something I had anticipated. But as I started plotting the Tillbridge Stables series, I became excited about the characters and their stories, and of course, the horses. Taking chances and making changes can lead to something positive. The Cowboy’s Claim was one of my favorite books to write.
