What's new with you?
You know how they say that absence makes the heart grow fonder? I wonder if I can use that as an excuse as to why I haven't posted here for awhile...
Yeah, I didn't think so!
Anyway, it's been a crazy year all around (and for EVERYONE!) As a teacher, I've finally completed the most difficult year of my career. As such, my author career had to take a backseat in many ways.
HOWEVER, this year alone (2021) I've completed TWO new books!
The first book I completed was the first book in my new hockey series, The Sacramento Ravage. Shutout tells the story of Theo Axelsson (The goaltender from Two for Holding) and Parker Ward (someone brand new!) as they both navigate their roles on a brand new professional hockey team.
I absolutely loved writing this book and adore the characters! It's available now on Amazon!
The second book I released just a couple of weeks ago is a part of the Single Dads Romance series. Flag on the Play stars Carson Ward (who is not only the quarterback of the Colorado Wildcats football team but also Parker's big brother) and Abby Lauder, his best friend's little sister. These two fight their feelings that they have for one another but are ultimately brought together by the baby Carson didn't know he had. It's a sweet, quick read with a romance that burns a bit slow. It's also available on Amazon now! So, now what?
Well, I have one more month of summer vacation and outside of the plans I have with my family, I'm hoping to make some great progress on the second book in the Sacramento Ravage series. This book is Defend the Zone and it's a second chance romance. I've already completed about 30% of it and I love it so far.
I'm hoping to have Defend the Zone out in the next couple of months. After it's done, I will be working on a book that stars two secondary characters from Flag on the Play. (Yes! Reese and Trevor are getting their own book!)
Maybe it's ambitious of me to hope to have two more books out this year (bringing my total for 2021 to FOUR when my total for 2020 was only one, ha.) but I like having lofty goals!
In the meantime, I hope you all know what you mean to me! Without wonderful readers like you, I wouldn't be doing what I am!
I'll be back soon (I promise!)

SHUTOUT Theo "Axe" Axelsson was at the top of his game. He was promoted to starting goaltender, helped his team bring home the Stanley Cup, and even won the Vezina trophy.
And what did that get him? A move to Sacramento to join the NHL’s newest hockey team, the Ravage.
Now he has to find his groove with a brand new group of guys and is biding his time until he can be traded back to New York where he belongs. The new neighbor across the hall has the ability to mess up his plans, though. He can stop the pucks on the ice but he can’t seem to shutout Parker.
Parker Ward’s new job is almost everything she’s ever wanted. Being a top reporter for a professional sports team is her dream and when she’s given the opportunity to join the newest hockey team, she takes it. Sure, she knows nothing about hockey and would rather be covering a football team, but this job is something she can’t pass up.
The surly neighbor across the hall wasn’t something she was anticipating, though. She can read people easily but she has a hard time figuring out Theo.
Theo is closed off and assumes the worst about people. Parker is outgoing and sees the good is most things. Theo isn’t planning on staying in Sacramento and Parker isn’t sure where she’s going to end up.
Knowing that isn’t enough to stop the two from being drawn to each other, but is it enough to keep either of them from getting hurt when the season is all over?
Watch as these two opposites collide in a flurry of hockey pucks and Princess Bride quotes– all while trying desperately not to fall in love.

FLAG ON THE PLAY Carson Ward’s life might seem glamorous but he’s a simple guy. He loves football, his family, and spending time with his friends. His biggest flaw might just be the fact that he has a secret crush on his best friend’s little sister and has for years.
Abby Lauder is a free spirit and loves seeing life through the lens of her camera. As the photographer for a professional football team, she’s used to being just one of the guys. Whether she’s taking pictures of nature or pictures of football players, she never fails to catch the perfect image. So what if her camera lingers on her brother’s best friend a bit longer than others?
When Carson's ex-girlfriend drops a newborn baby off on his doorstep, he’s caught completely unaware. He never dreamed that he would go from star quarterback to a single dad in an instant. Luckily, he has help from those around him- including Abby. But, taking care of a newborn baby isn’t easy and it’ll require the quarterback and the photographer to spend even more time together.
Amidst the diaper changes and late night feedings, hiding their feelings from each other will be harder than they think. Besides, their relationship is taboo in far too many ways for things to really go anywhere between them…right?
Or maybe Carson and Abby will realize that sometimes love is worth the risk. Buy on Amazon: http://bit.ly/KG-FOTP
