Just when I think I’ve hit rock bottom, a pink-haired street artist rocks my world. The sudden spotlight on her art collides with her old life on the streets—and my secret shame.

Wanting her isn’t enough. Our pasts could destroy our future.

Behind the scenes at a sexy photo shoot

Have you ever seen a book cover and thought, huh, I think I’ve read that before. Maybe you’re just seeing the same stock photo. It’s no secret in author circles that the best stock photos make the rounds … a lot. It’s also virtually impossible to find a good enough range of poses from a single model set to support a series. That’s why I decided to do a custom photo shoot.

Thanks to my massively talented friend Adrian Hale, an Austin-based hair and makeup artist who works with photographer Josh Baker of AzulOx Photography and a host of models, we arranged a shoot while I was visiting Austin featuring the gorgeous Callisto and David:

Revenge Bound

On the Internet, secrets never die…

Violet can’t imagine anything worse than having her very private, very naked photos strewn across the Internet.

Until they multiply like a virus.

With her name, address, and phone number attached.

And her boss finds out. And a stalker finds her.

Violet’s refuge is a rock star known for going through groupies faster than guitar picks. Letting Jayce get close enough to protect her exposes her secrets—and her heart—to a man whose celebrity could ruin her.

That’s because being a nobody is the one thing that keeps Violet’s photos from making headlines. And it’s the reason she can never fall for a rock star.

Secrets spread like wildfire when a celebrity fans the flames.

REVENGE BOUND  is a full-length, standalone novel, and a companion to the Tattoo Thief books. It contains steamy scenes and strong language intended for mature readers.

Now available on Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Kobo and in print.



Revenge Bound preview

Revenge Bound is now available on Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Kobo and in print.


The Internet is full of naked pictures of pretty girls. Curvy girls splayed on beds. Busty girls gripping their breasts in ecstasy. Blondes getting pounded, pistoned, defiled. Brunettes taking the money shot, the deep throat, the back door.

Any Google search will find you these images. And one of them might be me.

I’m the redhead. The one with her back arched, her eyes wide, her mouth open with desire. The one with her legs spread and her arms tied tight above her head.

I’m the one shot with her own camera and uploaded for the world to see.

And now I’m the one with the secret. Continue reading “Revenge Bound preview”


Which member of the Tattoo Thief band fits you?

My Tattoo Thief books are about a fictional band called Tattoo Thief, with each novel in the series a standalone love story about a different member of the band.

Tyler, the bassist, and Jayce, the lead guitarist, were best friends in high school. They met drummer Dave and lead singer/songwriter Gavin soon after they entered college in Pittsburgh. Now, all of the band members are age 24 or 25 and live in New York City.

Different things drive each man—different appetites for creative freedom, sex, and control. I even imagine what profession would best suit each guy if he wasn’t a rock star. Want to see who your ultimate book boyfriend might be? Click here to try this fun, two-minute quiz!


Find out what makes Tyler tick

Tyler Walsh is the bassist for Tattoo Thief and is credited with starting he band—getting the right guys together, and then getting the band into regular gigs. We sat down with the hero in Tyler & Stella to talk music and get a little more insight into Stella Ramsey, the reporter who’s been spending a lot of time with him lately.

What do you like about the bass?

It’s the foundation of the music. I like to play rock and also some older folk and blues stuff, because it drives the whole song.

When writing a song, does the bass line ever come first?

There are times it does. If a song starts with a weird bridge, that would be my time to shine. Look at a song like “Superstitious.” If you can play licks like that, the feeling is just phenomenal. Continue reading “Find out what makes Tyler tick”


A music playlist for Tyler & Stella

Tyler & Stella’s playlist had to be emotional, conflicted and ultimately positive, so I wanted to share some songs that inspired me.

Music has always been an essential part of my life, but it has an unusual place in my writing—I love it while I’m brainstorming and formatting, and hate it while I’m deep in drafting or editing. I think my mind wanders when there are lyrics that demand a listen.

When I’m songwriting (for a book), I often have a few melodies in my head to help with the mood and phrasing. I’ve included these here.
