Done Growed Up Giveaway

Tell us about yourself.

Having been blessed with a love for telling stories and a life full of drama/trauma loving to write, putting them all together seemed like a no brainer. It has turned out to be one of my greatest ideas in a life full of hair brain ideas. Writing about life issues, human foibles and family dysfunction even generally has given me a wonderfully healing prospective on my own life. Although some of the things I write about I have experienced these books are works of fiction.

What inspired your book Done Growed Up?

Mainly, I wanted Ginny Mackey to have a chance at redemption for her actions in my previous novel. Women in that time didn’t have it easy and Ginny lacked the resources for mental health. I wanted her to get help so my readers could see that she has a heart and soul.

Tell us about your main character.

Ginny Mackey is a recently divorced mother of four struggling to put her life back together after loosing a baby, going through a divorce and drowning her sorrows in alcohol.

What other books have you written?

Apron Strings the first in the Apron Strings

What do you think readers will find most appealing about your book?

I think my characters are multidimensional with redeemable qualities and hateful qualities…sometimes both. People really care what is going to happen to them.

How did you come up with the idea for your book cover?

Childhood is supposed to be a free and easy time. The girl flying the kite is representative of that feeling, but the child is a sillouette and there is an ominous darkness around her. Her representative mother is present in the scene to offer comfort, yet is not entirely focused on that task. It seemed that being “Done Growed Up” was represented well on all counts and the main characters’ personalities also shine through on this cover.

What are you currently working on?

My fourth novel entitled Shooting in the Dark at Scarce Birds is a novel set in Oak Ridge Tennessee during the war. It is about secrets in a secret city.

 Kobo
 Jason Sutherland is a billionaire investor who has it all: good looks,
billions of dollars, and every expensive toy a man could ever want. What
he doesn’t have is the one thing he wants the most: Hope Sinclair.
Unfortunately Hope, the little sister of his best friend, was off
limits. But when he finds out that she’s getting married, he decides
that he’s staking his claim before it’s too late, and it will take more
than a little deception and risk to accomplish his goal. Hope could end
up hating his guts, but after spending one forbidden night with her that
he can’t forget, he knows he has to try to make her his forever.
Hope Sinclair was born into money, but being rich has never made her
happy. The one thing she wants is a man to care about her and not her
bank account. The closest thing she’s ever found to real happiness was
the magical, passionate night she’d spent in the arms of Jason
Sutherland…until that night turned into heartbreak. So when he
unexpectedly comes back into her life in the strangest of ways, Hope is
determined to resist her attraction to him.

Thrown together by Jason’s deception and with their passion still
burning hot, can the two of them survive after the billionaire is
unmasked?

18+ only. Not suitable for children and teens under 18.

Currently Free 
Down
on her luck, nursing student and full-time waitress Kara Foster gets a
massive blow to her already desperate financial situation that will
surely find her living on the streets. Needing nothing less than a
miracle to save her, Kara gets rescue from an unknown, unlikely and
overwhelming source. Billionaire Simon Hudson makes her an offer that is

never met. Will the handsome, alpha billionaire really be a solution to
her problems, or will he end up being a major complication and a danger
to her emotional sanity?
Reclusive billionaire Simon Hudson would

over Kara, but stubbornly refuses to admit his desire to possess her,
not even to himself. But when she ends up in a situation that could very
well be her destruction, Simon steps up to help her, not realizing that

Billionaire
Sam Hudson has pretty much lived his life with no apologies because he
tries never to do anything that he’s sorry about…except for what he had

Sam meets up with Maddie again by chance; his brother Simon is marrying
Maddie’s best friend and the two of them are forced to be civil. But
Sam wants to be more than polite, and he wants another chance to make
things right, so he offers Maddie a bold proposition, an offer he knows
she’ll have a very hard time declining even though she hates him.
Dr.
Madeline Reynolds adores her best friend Kara and her fiancé Simon, but
being forced into the company of Sam Hudson, because they are both in
Simon and Kara’s wedding, is pure torture. She’s hated Sam for years,
but when he offers her a bargain, something near and dear to her heart,
she’s torn between her dislike for the man and the offer of something
she’s always desperately wanted. Once, Sam Hudson nearly destroyed her,
but Maddie discovers that sometimes things aren’t always what they
appear to be. Is Sam really a devious heartbreaker, or is there
something more to him beneath the surface?
Can two people with so many years of hurt between them learn to trust each other again?

He’d
been reunited with a sister he hadn’t realized existed. Finally he had
family again, a reprieve from the pain and loneliness that had haunted
him since his devastating loss. Yeah…he was as happy as a man could be,

when fate had torn his wife away from him.
Or
so he believed…until the day he rescued a mysterious woman in the park,
a female who somehow had managed to reignite a part of him that he
thought was long dead…
Suddenly,
Max’s protective, dominant, possessive male instincts flare to life,
leaving him at a loss as to how lightning could possibly strike twice in
one lifetime. Is he truly being given another chance at real happiness,
or would it be dangled in front of him, only to be taken away once
again?

The Billionaire’s Game – The Billionaire’s Obsession ~ Kade

 

With
his professional football career over due to a tragic accident,
billionaire Kade Harrison takes on the task of solving a mystery for his
brother-in-law and friend, Max Hamilton. Without his former career to
fill every minute of the day, Kade’s looking for something to challenge
him–now that he’s lost the career that had meant everything to him.
But what starts out as a simple favor soon becomes a whole lot more than
he bargained for when the woman he’s seeking slips away from him every
time he gets close to finding her. When Kade does finally corner her,
things start to get even more complicated. Asha Paritala is nothing
like he expected, and the female he had tracked down as a favor for Max
soon becomes a woman he wants for his very own, a woman who makes
protective and highly predatory instincts he didn’t know he had flare to
life inside him. Kade soon discovers that he wants Asha’s total
surrender to the desire and passion that vibrates intensely between the
two of them, but he also wants her trust, the one thing Asha’s history
makes it difficult for her to give. Can Kade convince her that some
things are worth risking it all?
Caught
between two worlds, Asha Paritala is homeless, broke and damaged from a
life of abuse and neglect. Born of an American mother and an Indian
immigrant father, Asha was raised as an Indian woman by a foster family
after the death of her natural parents when she was little more than a
baby. She’s spent her entire life under the control of others until
finally breaking free two years earlier, and she’s determined to keep
her freedom, even if it means she has to struggle to survive. But when
she meets Kade Harrison, her resolve is tested. After Kade helps her
through a bad situation, she finds herself beginning to trust Kade as
she’s never trusted a man before. Kade is everything she always
thought a man should be, but can she lose herself in him completely when
she knows she’s damaged and confused. And is it really possible that
she could be a lost sibling to two people like Max Hamilton and Maddie
Hudson? Asha is tempted by the possibility of family, and the
irresistible lure of a man like Kade Harrison. Can a woman caught
between two cultures, so flawed and so backward, really reach out and
take what she wants, or will the instinct to run from the pain of her
past destroy the hope of happiness for her future?
Find out if two broken souls can heal each other in The Billionaire’s Game, book 4 of The Billionaire’s Obsession series!!

that her fiancé, the man she’d nearly killed herself to help get through
school, has been cheating on her. With her wedding looming in the near
future, Ally’s blindsided, realizing she’d never even knew the man she’d

straighten her life out again. Unfortunately, she doesn’t much care for
his highhanded arrogance or his methods of “helping.” Ally wants to hate
Travis. It makes her life so much simpler to fight with him than to

façade, she can’t seem to resist the dangerous lure of their unlikely
attraction.Billionaire Travis Harrison does
everything he possibly can to repair the Harrison name after a scandal

ice. Only his secretary and assistant, Alison Caldwell, makes him come
close to losing his carefully constructed image. The obstinate female
keeps shoving him closer and closer to the edge of sanity every single
day. But when he finds out about her fiancé’s betrayal, his protective
instincts roar to life inside him, making him want to ensure she’s never
hurt again. The only problem is…Ally doesn’t want his help, and the
infuriating woman does everything she can to push him away, even as the
two of them are swept into an undeniable passion that neither of them
can possibly ignore. Before long, Travis finds himself in ruthless
pursuit of something much more important and elusive than just a
business deal.
Can these two very different, very stubborn
people actually be meant to be together? Find out if Travis and Ally can
let down their defenses and surrender to a love so powerful it will
rock them to the depths of their souls in Billionaire Undone, Book Five
