Thank you so much for having me over at Imperfect Women! Man, am I an imperfect woman. Seriously. It has taken years, but I’ve finally learned to embrace the real me and stop worrying about being perfect. Or rather, stop worrying about appearing to have it all in control.
Life is crazy, and so am I sometimes.
That’s all right. One of the very cool things about being an author is that I can let the crazy out. I couldn’t really do that as either a lawyer or a college professor, my past careers. With this career, I can totally drool over sexy cowboys and not-so-secretly believe that vampires might truly exist.
In December, I quit my day job as a professor and also gave up law in order to write full time. Well, I was writing full time and also working the other jobs, so you’d figure I’d have tons of time now. I’d planned to write for a few hours, do some yoga, and possibly spend some time studying Supernatural and figuring out, from a writing perspective, why the show works so well. You know, as part of my job, and not as a way to ogle Jensen Ackles. I also considered taking up photography. Yet somehow, I seem to have less time now than I did before.
My new camera is still in the box, and Jensen Ackles isn’t getting the ogling he deserves.
I think I expected to jump right into my new routine and have it figured out quickly and easily. Or rather, I guess I figured I’d have a routine. My Nana was a wise woman, and every once in a while, I need to return to her five tenets:
- Life’s too short not to enjoy what you’re doing
- Joy is a conscious decision – make it
- If you’re not happy, fix it
- Love the little moments because they’re the ones that count
- Be you
See? A very wise woman. When I get overwhelmed, or when life gets nuts, I return to those very sound five pieces of advice. I hope they work for you, too.

Synopsis: Friends with benefits was never the plan…
Melanie Jacobs is in trouble. With three jobs—including running her ranch—and dwindling funds, she’s exhausted. Not to mention desperately trying to hide a secret. Unfortunately, her best friend Colton Freeze knows all too well that’s something is going on, and he won’t give up until he knows exactly what he needs to fix.
Then Colton learns the truth—that Melanie’s future happiness rests in the fickle hands of fate, and her chances for having a family are shrinking with every passing day. Her only comfort is Colton, but when a heated argument between them turns into an even hotter kiss, the boundaries of their friendship are erased, leaving only a scorching-hot hunger for more.
Every kiss—every touch—is a stolen pleasure. But will their new friends-with-sexy-benefits arrangement bring them closer together, or destroy everything they once shared?
