Have you ever given up on something because you thought it would be too hard or you weren't good enough?
I have! All the time in fact until recently. I'd write stories and send them in waiting for the rejection email to say it wasn't what they wanted, so that I could tell myself "see you aren't good enough." But for some unknown reason I kept at it, kept trying and suddenly my attitude was, maybe I can do it! My dear friend Suz encouraged me constantly not to give up and now my confidence is at an all time high. It's okay to take a break from your dreams to see if it truly is your passion. Every time I was curled up on the couch watching the TV I'd find myself day dreaming and brainstorming of a new WIP and curse myself for ever thinking of giving up. I enjoy writing, even if it's just for me and no one will ever see it. Don't let your dreams slip through the cracks because you think it's too hard to catch!

It’s been fourteen years since Jordan Powell ended her relationship with Nate Thrillson and she is still not over him. She never expected to see him again.
Nate is hiding a deadly secret and plans to live out the rest of his life alone. When he is assigned as head investigator to a missing dogs case he doesn’t expect to be working so closely with the town veterinarian, Jordan. As they work together to discover who is kidnapping these dogs, old feelings
are brought to the surface. Can they be together again or will other problems force them apart?
Sneak peek exerpt:
“And another thing.”
She stood in front of him and crossed her arms over her chest. “What?”
He grabbed onto her forearms forcing her arms to fall stiffly to her sides and pushed her back against the wall. Her heart started to race and one look into his lust filled eyes, made her body warm. Her breath caught in her throat. Slamming his body into hers, Nate’s lips hovered over hers and he kissed her passionately. His hands traveled up to the back of her neck and caressed it softly as he deepened the kiss.
Heat exploded all over her body. She should stop him, stop herself. This was so wrong. They hadn’t seen each other in so long. It was too soon to share such a passionate kiss. But it felt incredibly right.
He pulled away slowly.
She panted, trying to catch her breath. Jordan couldn’t tear her gaze away from him. Nate stared back at her.
Nate smiled. “Miss me?” He winked at her and walked past her. Once he opened the door, Nate glanced back at her.
“Not a bit,” she lied. Oh, she had missed his kisses, and the way he made her boil with passion.

What inspires you?
Inspiration can come from any where. A song from a playlist, people watching at the local mall, or even a simple picture. Where and when your creative spark happens is a mystery and something you can't plan for but when it happens ... It's the most spectacular feeling!

The Vampire Narcise by Colleen Gleason
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Absolutely loved this one and wish there were more. Vampire Narcise had been controlled by her brother for far too long and When Cale first saw her, he wanted to save her. A huge misunderstanding occurred between then and then Chas the vampire hunter entered the picture and in deed save her from her nasty brother. She enjoyed Chas but in the end her heart was only able to love one.
