My Lady, so perfect and pale, with such beauty and grace is a sensual goddess to be worshipped and treasured.

She is the treasure that I yearn to have as mine and I focus now solely on the change. I am not sure how much time passes when my power suddenly snaps back into me. I grind my teeth to keep from grunting from the impact. Surprised that Than has not sensed my power on the move, either that, or he has not shown me that he knows. I am also very pleased that he is so consumed with his search, that he does not realize what I have done.
“Mmm...”
Both Than and myself turn toward the feminine sound.
I feel my eyes widen in surprise, but I quickly conceal it. It worked, from what I am able to see of her. I can only see her face and the pale upper flesh of her breasts. What lovely breasts they are. I feel my mouth water for a taste of her creamy globes, and my hands itch to feel their weight.
The woman from my dreams kneels, nude within the heather, looking disoriented. Her hair is a tangled mess, partially covering her face. She does not seem to be able rise and stand solidly. Gravity currently appears to be her enemy.
Observing her, I feel as if I am floating. Light and filled with air, like one of my Uncle’s magic bubbles when it floats up toward the sun. Higher and higher, drifting into bliss, and I find myself smiling.
She glances up, sees me, and her mouth forms an ‘O’ of surprise. Her breathing becomes slightly erratic. It looks as if she is unable to catch a proper breath.
I find myself moving toward her as though being pulled by some unknown force, completely captivated by the sight before me and unable to resist its call. Now, we only have eyes for each other. I feel everything else around us disappear. It is now just her and I, caught in a spell woven of lust and intense longing. I am lost within the depths of her soul-filled, pleading eyes. I move closer to answer their call when an annoying buzzing sound pulls me from the spell.

Our Author Interview

What would you have done differently if you were the main character of your book? 

Honestly (apologies if this offends anyone), I’d have lots more sex. Lol- you asked!

What was your inspiration behind this book? 

I’ve always loved fantasy. My first movies that got me even more hooked are The Never Ending Story, The Last Unicorn and Legend. Each of them was magical in their own way. I guess you can say it’s a combination of all of them along with my sister’s love of unicorns that inspired me to write Lady’s Destiny.

Why did you become a writer?

 I’ve always loved writing from when I was young; even just jotting down nonsense that popped into my head, dreams or thoughts of my day (or a boy crush) in my journal(s). I wrote poems for my mother every chance I had. I don’t recall if they were all that great. I DO remember most of them based on the rhythm of “Roses are red…” Yea, lol


Do you have a favorite author or authors? 

You bet! My very first ever favorite was Stephen King. From there, there’s Laurell K. Hamilton, George R.R. Martin, Patricia Briggs, Karen Marie Moning, Stephenie Meyer, J.R.R. Tolkien, J.R. Ward, Jeanine Frost, Kresely Cole, Chloe Neill, Vicki Pettersson, Melissa Marr and Richelle Mead are the first ones that come to mind (yes, there are many more. I LOVE to read!)

Do you like to write your books in a continuing series?

 I’m still finding my likes and dislikes. But so far series seems to be what my characters want. 

If you could date any character from any book, who would it be and why?

 Oh boy. There are three I’d date, but (what seems to be) my life long crush is Vicious from the BDB series. I do adore me a bad boy, YUM!

What kinds of books do you like to read in your spare time? 

Everything and anything I can get my hands on. Mostly fiction though. I love a great escape!

As a reader and writer I think it is important to get to know your fans and make a connection with them as an author who takes the extra step to hear what their fans think and want in their continued writing is continued success and key to selling more books .Do you agree with that? 

Absolutely! I love talking with my readers, sharing what we have in common and hearing their thoughts about my work. I take it all (positive and negative) into consideration when writing. Some readers are so in tune with my stories, it amazes me! I’ve also made some incredible fans since my very first release. I absolutely adore my reader’s xoxo

Do you cry when writing sad scenes? 

Yes, a few times. I have to stop because I can’t see!
Did you have a Cover Designer? 

Yes, the cover designer for Lady’s Destiny is Kellie of Book Cover By Design. I think she did an amazing job and hope to work with her again real soon 
Who is your fictional boyfriend or girlfriend crush? Vicious from BDB. It tends to change once and awhile. But I always go back to him ;)

If you were able to dine and have a one on one with your favorite writer/author who would it be? 

This is a hard one. There are so many I adore! I’ll go with my first ever, Stephen King. I think we’d have a blast!

Do just re-read your favorite books? 

Sometimes. 

Do you ever get in a reading slump like your readers do?

 Ha! You bet I do!


What is the funniest book you ever read?

 I don’t recall a specific book. But I find myself laughing a lot when reading anything from Eve Langlias and Kerrilyn Sparks.

Biography:

I started off early in competitive sports and quickly got into football where I immediately adapted. I maintained football throughout my entire life. But my love for the gym and fitness didn’t start till sophomore year in high school. However, in my junior year I was in a terrible car crash where my head was crushed as I was ran over in the street by a truck after being catapulted at 80mph. I was airlifted to the hospital where I had emergency brain surgery and my heart failed. They immediately brought me back with an adrenaline shot where they presumed I would not live. I was in a coma two weeks. When I woke I had to re-learn everything including how to function and walk again.

In 2012 I went into training for NFL and now playing pro arena looking to keep pursuing football and modeling as well as motivate others and coach them in bettering their lives. Through fitness and motivational speaking.
