~ Author Bio ~
I'm a slighty crazy book fiend with an addiction to Kindle and the one-click button!
A very late starter to writing although reading is and always has been a passion of mine.
Writing a book never crossed my mind until being forced to give up work because of a long term illness. I started spending so much time reading that ideas started to grow in my mind for a story of my own, Rising Up developed.
I live quietly in the beautiful South Lincolnshire countryside with my gorgeous husband, who is my biggest fan and provides me with masses of support, and my dog a deeply dippy Dogue de Bordeaux who keeps me amused with her antics.
Life is never boring here.
Reunion ~ Book One
Because loves deserves a second chance.
After being cast out by his family Nico leaves his home town and his one true love Ryan. A meeting of a fellow outcast leads him down a dark and ultimately dangerous road. Discarded and left for dead Nico is found by a man who helps him turn his life around, but even with success and fame Nico is lost without his love by his side.
The chance sighting of a Ten Year School Reunion on a social media site gives him the excuse to return home. He needs to apologize to the man he still loves, hoping he will accept it. Deep down he wants him back but imagines him married to a man who deserves him, not a coward that ran.
‘The ache for Ryan has been so strong and so real it has taken every ounce of strength I have to keep away, to let him lead his life without me. With me being a deadbeat, a loser and no good for anyone. Or so I’ve been told.’
Ryan retires from the army after the death of his mother, settling again in his home town and his new life as a cop. Still single, his heart has always belonged to the one man he wasn’t able to keep. As the reunion gets closer Ryan searches for his man’s name as the list of attendees grows…
It’s there…Nico Angeles. He’s coming, he’s coming home!
Will they be able to forget the past or has the last ten years apart been too long?

Reunited ~ Book Two
The reunion between Ryan and Nico was sweet as sugar and as hot as hell, but after ten years apart can they find true happiness?
When the one man Nico had wished to never see again suddenly appears, is it purely the coincidence it appears to be, or is there a reason he showed up at the exact moment Nico and Ryan found each other again?
I watch the man I love walk back through the doors of the restroom his ass is tight and firm and feels so damn good. How have I lived without Ryan for this long? He is such a good man, a strong assertive and confident man.
Ryan and Nico both discover living with each other is not easy. They know the love they share is real but they're not the same men they once were. The passion between the two men continues to rocket sky high but so does the tension, causing tempers to rise between them.
“I love you Nico, but I hate your past. Or more that I hate how your past has decided to control us.”
When secrets emerge and the past threatens the two men, can they pull together or will it too much for Ryan to cope with?
By the time the puzzle has been solved it may just be too late for one or even both of them.

My Turn an erotic romance
If I thought leaving the US the first time was hard, it was nothing compared to this.
Maddie leaves her best friend again and goes back to the UK. Struggling with her feelings for her ex Lake and a broken heart she attempts to turn her life around again.
Months later after a photography course and a final exhibition she manages exactly that.

Bored with his life and hassled by and ex-girlfriend Nathan is drawn to Maddie and a spark between them encourages him to pursue her.
He catches my hand and slips his card into my hand. “Call me, Ms. Stevens. I’d love to see you and more of your work.” I don’t miss the shiver that goes up my arm as the spark from his touch reaches me.
Back in the States Lake battles with the loss of Maddie when he realizes that he does love her but has no idea how to get her back.
But fate steps into both of their lives when a young woman, Tallie enters Lake’s life and the whole world stops for him and he is captivated by her.
“Lake, trust me you’ve just found your girl. You looked at her the way I look at Ginny, you can’t get away from it dude, it’s fate. C’mon I’ll buy you a beer.”
I’m just standing there staring at him, “Fuck off Mason, you know I want Maddie back.”
“All I know is that from where I was standing you fell hook, line and sinker for that girl. So fight it all you want but that girl is your future.”
But I love Maddie. Don’t I?
As Maddie and Lake come to terms with the idea of not being together their lives become full of new love and potential. So when the wedding invitation arrives Maddie is forced to make a decision.
Disaster hits when Maddie’s dark past catches up with her and the consequences nearly break both her and Nathan. Her mind is no longer confused she knows who her future lies with.
