• My Ah-ha Moment When Writing The Original Bound and Controlled Series – Plus New Personality Quizzes!

    When I first started writing, I was a teacher with a long, painfully boring commute through the middle of nowhere. So I would spend the drive back and forth dreaming about stories and planning what I would write. My writing time was in short bits normally early in the morning, so I could get in a few hundred words before I had to get my kids up for the day. Since there was very little time to dawdle when I sat down to write, I planned things out in my head as I drove. I knew I wanted to do a series, but I wasn’t sure what it should look like or who they would be until one morning on […]

  • Coming Soon in the Bound and Controlled World – A Whole New Series!

    The Bound and Controlled club is one of my favorite parts of my world, but I haven’t managed to take too many characters back there lately. So when I was trying to decide what I wanted to write this year, I knew it was time to change that. In Something About Loren, you met a few of the guys who are going to be part of a new series, Tender Control. The first book is Bound with You and will be out on March 19. Book two is Bound to You and will be out on April 23. Both books are up for preorder now because lately, I’ve done nothing but write. (FYI once the world opens up, I’m planning […]

  • Inspiration for a New Sub

    Starting a book for me is always a very random process. I find inspiration in odd things like song lyrics or comments on the radio or bits of conversations I hear when I’m running errands. Sometimes it’s a picture, but not very often. Usually finding a picture that fits my idea of who the characters are comes late in the process. But once in a while, that changes. A few weeks ago I was browsing through Facebook and I saw a premade cover (a book cover a designer had put together randomly and not for any specific author) and I knew he was one of my guys. But I didn’t know what I was going to do with him. I […]

  • What’s Coming Next? Books in November, December, and 2021

    Nothing ever goes according to plan for me…I write out a list of what I want to write and my characters giggle and do their own thing. In early October as I was finishing the last book for Leon and Morgan, I started poking at several ideas and I told myself I was going to write a new Beautiful Shame book. But my brain didn’t like that idea. With everything going on lately, and just the general chaos in my head, it all came to a screeching halt. Well, not a complete halt. I have names and fabulously dirty ideas about what they’re doing to do together, but for those books I have to be in a certain frame of […]

  • Bryce!

    Bryce, Oliver, and Troy…I was unsure how the book would look when I started writing it. I had a few specific things in my mind that needed to be included, but a lot of the story was vague so I took a step back. I decided I needed to see how everything started for them before I could write anything else. So I began playing with the club scene where the three men took the steps that changed their relationship. Writing the prequel was fun, and it helped me see who the characters were. Exploring the dynamics in a relationship with three people was interesting, and I know they won’t be my only ménage book. When I’d originally started planning […]

  • Bound and Controlled : Bryce Chapter 1

    Chapter 1 Bryce He knew he should stay away, but he couldn’t. Something about the couple had called to him from the first moment he’d seen them. He’d tried to leave them alone and find someone else that attracted him, but it wasn’t possible. Watching as Troy carefully wrapped a still-shaking Oliver in a soft blanket, he told his feet they needed to walk away from the intimate moment in front of him, but the traitors kept taking him closer. Inch by inch he worked his way toward the darkness. The sounding scene had been for the audience at Bound & Controlled as well as the men, but now that it was over, the aftercare was only for the two […]
