I wanted to do a quick post to share an interview that I did with Nicholas Tanek over at his website yourkinkyfriends.com. In it we chat about writing, we discuss what I'd like to see more of and less of in erotica, we talk about some of my favorite movies, and more!

Looking Back on 2019





It’s official! 2019 is coming to a close, and a new decade is around the corner! Looking back on the past year, there are some things I’m so grateful for. Here’s a short list of the highlights:



1) I released the first book in my very first FF romance trilogy, THE NEON FISHNETS, and was floored by how well received it was! It consistently stayed within the top 100 of Amazon’s Lesbian Fiction and Lesbian Romance categories and has been my most successful book to date. Thank you, readers!

2) I had my first ever audio book versions of a couple of my stories released. Such a fun milestone!

3) I connected with lots of wonderfully kind new fans of my work online. So appreciative of those of you who have reached out! I love hearing from you!

4) Not writing related, but I got to meet one of my long-time idols, the living angel Sarah Brightman. Unforgettable experience!

5) Also not writing related, I finally got to check out Deep Ellum, a beyond cool spot in Dallas that i’ve always wanted to check out, and which will appear in NEON FISHNETS Book 2!



Are there any noteworthy things you did in 2019? If so, please share in the comments!

Wishing everyone a great new year!

"Last Minute Valentine" Now Available as an Audiobook!

Hello! I wanted to do a quick post to announce that my erotic FF short story "Last Minute Valentine" is now available to purchase as an audio book!





Cass is seriously bummed out that her boyfriend had the gall to confess to having an affair one week before Valentine’s Day. Now painfully single on one of the hardest days to be single out of the year, she reaches out to her good friend Jeannie for support. When Jeannie comes over to Cass’ apartment with flowers and chocolates, Cass is beyond pleased. She grows even more pleasantly surprised when Jeannie begins to hit on her. The truth is, she’s secretly had a crush on Jeannie for a while, but only now, as they take their friendship to a sensual new level, does she realise the feeling has been mutual.

PLAYING WITH FIRE Spotlight #3: Reunion Tower

This last Behind the Scenes Spotlight of THE NEON FISHNETS BOOK 1: PLAYING WITH FIRE highlights one of my favorite places in Dallas: Reunion Tower!






Reunion Tower is an actual place and one of the most eye-catching features of the Dallas Skyline. It was featured in the opening credits for the popular soap opera Dallas. I've had the pleasure of dining at the restaurant Five Sixty, which features a fantastic menu by chef Wolfgang Puck. There's also an awesome bar up in the tower called Cloud 9.


Cloud 9

One of the coolest things about the tower is that when you're at Five Sixty or Cloud 9, it rotates! But it doesn't rotate too fast, just at a nice leisurely pace, so you get a full view of Dallas down below as you're enjoying your food or drinks. There's also an observational deck where visitors can experience the view minus the food.

In PLAYING WITH FIRE, some of the band members visit the tower to have drinks at the Cloud 9 bar. I thought it would be a fun place to have one of the pivotal scenes in the books. As I'm a Dallas area resident, I have a lot of fun including real-life places in my stories. I also enjoy making up  fictional spots. But Reunion Tower is 100% real and worthy of a visit of local rock stars!

PLAYING WITH FIRE Spotlight #2: Save the Tortoise!

At the very beginning of THE NEON FISHNETS BOOK 1: PLAYING WITH FIRE, the narrator, Jackie Hernandez, has to slam on her brakes so she doesn't hit the poor tortoise that is crawling across the road. Even though she's a rock star, she still functions in the real world; she's still a human being with a heart for animals.




Tortoises try to cross roads more often in Texas than you might think! Most people who aren't from around here, when they think of our local animals might think of side-winding rattlesnakes or mooing cows or howling coyotes. But these crawling tortoises are definitely around, and a lot of them don't have much sense when it comes to stepping onto the streets.

Most of the time, it happens in rural/country areas, but I've also seen them in towns on busier roads. More than once in my life, I've stopped my car and have run out to grab one of these poor fellas to escort them to safety.

I just thought it'd be fun to put a little actual Texas wildlife (as well as some real life experience from the author) into this rock and roll tale.

So there's your fun NEON FISHNETS behind-the-scenes fact for the day!

PLAYING WITH FIRE Spotlight #1: Bass in the Family

Thanks to my dad, I grew up on classic rock and roll. From a very early age (like barely old enough to sit up straight), he propped me up in front of his record player and introduced me to artists such as The Beatles, The Doors, David Bowie, The Moody Blues, and more. As I got older, I branched off on my own and discovered bands like Led Zeppelin and Metallica.

Being a writer, it seems destined that I one day would write a story that involved a rock band of some sort. Thus, THE NEON FISHNETS trilogy was born!

BOOK 1: PLAYING WITH FIRE is narrated by bass player Jackie Hernandez. I thought it would be fun to write from the point of view of a bass player because my dad also plays bass!


Dad doing his thing.


I can remember being a little girl, hanging out upstairs in my room, and feeling the vibrations of the bass through the floor as my dad practiced downstairs. To this day, I enjoy being anywhere there is live music because it takes me to a happy place of nostalgia, like I belong there.


Dad's Precision 5-String 

Most of my family is musical. Dad plays bass, Mom plays piano, and both of my brothers can play the guitar. I've tinkered with instruments but never found one that called out to me, so I simply enjoy and appreciate other people playing music while I stick with the writing. 


Dad's Fender Jazz Bass

If you're familiar with the pecking order of rock bands, you know that bass players always get picked on and are seen as the "least important" band member. But growing up with a bass player for a dad, I learned how important the bass is to creating a song's sound and that without it, bands like Led Zeppelin, for example, wouldn't sound nearly as good as they do.

Writing from the point of view of a bass player in PLAYING WITH FIRE was a total pleasure because I had some great real-life material to work with, thanks to Dad! I think it added an extra element to the novel that wouldn't have been there had I written purely from a distant research vantage point.

Have you gotten your copy of the book yet?

NEON FISHNETS BOOK 1 --> Now Available!

It's live!

And for a limited time, it'll be available for free for Kindle Unlimited users!




Bass player Jackie Hernandez has landed a permanent gig with the respected all-female rock band The Neon Fishnets. There’s only one problem: Ivy Finch. In the past, Jackie and The Fishnets’ keyboardist engaged in an ugly online feud. Jackie is ready to put the feud behind them, but fiery Ivy holds a grudge. Amid recording a hot new album, spending late nights out at wild parties, and navigating the media as they prepare to go on tour, Jackie and Ivy realize they have more in common than they originally thought. And things get really complicated when their attraction to one another heats up, taking an unexpected, sexy turn.
