BLOG TOUR BANNER.jpg

Chaos and Control, an all-new standalone from Season Vining is available NOW!

ChaosAndControl-1600

Title: Chaos and Control

Author: Season Vining

Release Date: December 11th

When Wren Hart returns to her sleepy little Midwest town after years on the road, she finds the last thing she’d ever expect—a reason to stay. And that reason has a hard body, a knowledge of vinyl, and a crooked smile that sends her reeling.

Preston is a gorgeous, mysterious man, whose life is ruled by routine and order. Yet somehow, he finds Wren and her wild ways captivating. While their relationship grows in a delicate dance of chaos and control, the danger Wren thought she’d left behind during her travels is inching ever closer…and just may destroy them both.

Excerpt:

“Want to tell me what you’re thinking about?”

Preston’s gaze flicks to my mouth and up to my eyes.

“Kissing.”

Hope ignites a fire inside me. “And how do you feel about kissing?”

I see his Adam’s apple bob, and he taps the side of his glass with his index finger.

“It’s easier when I’m drunk. The alcohol seems to take the edge off.”

I frown at the thought of this. Needing alcohol to dull your senses seems like such a waste. I try not to give him a sympathetic look. I know he doesn’t want my pity

.

“That’s too bad,” I say, letting my palm rest on his knee. The song changes, and I grin at the familiar beat. “Kissing is one of my favorite things. I mean, sex is good, but kissing is much more intimate. Don’t you think?”

Preston shrugs at me, but I see that I have his undivided attention.

“First there’s the build up. Innocent touches,” I say, dragging my nails up his thigh, “and mutual flirting just to let the other party know you’re open to the idea. There’s that slow burn in your body. It builds every time you catch the other person staring.”

Preston listens intently, finishing his whiskey. He licks those perfect lips, and my fingers tighten around my glass, holding on to the last of my control.

“Every time you drink or take a bite of something, your full attention is brought to the mouth. You imagine what those lips will feel like. Will they be soft and submissive? Or hard and possessive?”

I sip my drink while he pours himself another.

“And which do you prefer?” he asks. His normally deep voice is even lower and gritty. It reminds me of the static scratching noise when an album finishes playing.

“I like both—individually and at the same time. I like to be owned by a kiss.”

Preston leans back on the couch and sips his drink again. He stares out at the store.

“Seems like a lot of pressure for a kiss.”

About Season:

Hi. My name is Season Vining. I have written poetry as long as I can remember. There are hand-written odes to flowers, mermaids and New Kids on the Block tucked away somewhere in my mother’s house. Later, things grew darker. Lines of teenage angst, the cruelties of high school and woes of unrequited love fill random pages of school notebooks. With maturity came a longer attention span and a desire to pen short stories. Eventually, I was inspired to write my first manuscript by reading other stories. I found myself wishing for this storyline or that character and one day asked myself, “Why don’t you write it?”

I love a bit of adventure and danger mixed in with my romance and you’ll find that in each story I tell. I love to hear from fans, so feel free to reach out to me on social media or through my website. Thanks for being awesome!

In the simplest terms, I am a designer, an author, a philanthropist, a bookworm, a cook, inked, a night owl, and always a student.

SYNOPSIS:

Tiffany

Leading a nomadic life, I’ve been on the run from my rich ex-husband for years. I’ve learned every trick in the book, staying one step ahead of him and his trackers. He’s taken everything from me, and despite everything, I’ve managed to carve out a life. But he’s getting close again. It’s time to hit the road, to start over…but it looks like the universe has other plans.

Ryder

As Sargent at Arms, stalking the crazy man trying to kill my MC brothers is part of my job description. Protecting the club is what I live for. Unfortunately, today I’m the loser in our never ending game of cat and mouse. The last thing I remember before waking up in the emergency room is staring up at the sky while bleeding out onto the cold, hard pavement. Then the pretty nurse walks in and turns my world sideways, and those soft hands know just how to handle a big, angry biker like me. With a psycho on my tail, the stakes couldn’t be higher. I know I should walk away, but self-preservation has never been much of a strong suit. As my enemy closes in, I’ve got no gun, three bullet holes, and absolutely zero patience left. The question is, who will be the one to sign my death warrant—the crazy-ass biker who’s gunning for me…or the sexy-as-sin nurse I’ve got a hard-on for?

EXCERPT

“Call me Ryder.” His head was still throbbing, and his fingers were half numb, but he wanted to hear his name on her lips. Taking a deep breath, he allowed his eyes to drift from her face down to her chest, landing on her name badge. Tiffany Stone, RN. Looking up to recapture her eyes, he spoke quietly. “Miss Tiffany, if I’m going to survive, I need your help.”

“I don’t know how I can be any more help than I already have in this situation. I’m just a nurse.”

He hated seeing the fear so clearly stamped on her attractive face as she gazed up at him.

Cupping her face in his hands, he tried to communicate the urgency of his need. Meeting her eyes, his words were sincere when he told her, “I can’t be found here, electronically or physically. You are the only person I have right now. Will you help me?”

After facing off with the estranged man, Ryder could tell that his open honesty affected her, softening her to his request.

“Look, doll, you were amazing. How often do you get the chance to match wits with a killer while a man’s life hangs in the balance?”

Ignoring his attempt at humor, she replied thoughtfully, “Fine, Ryder. This is my last day at this job, so I’ll take a chance for you. Updating your information in our database shouldn’t be too difficult, since we have identity issues with our patients off and on. If I don’t modify that information, they might give him information on you if they think he’s family.

“Him coming here again is too much of a risk for you and the other patients we’re treating, so it’s a lesser of two evils kind of choice for me. In fact, we might be able to stash you in one of the empty offices in the back for the night, then on the off chance that he comes barreling back in here, he won’t find you lying helpless on your back.”

Grabbing her by the arm, he whispered, “You’re a woman after my own heart.”

Ignoring his gentle flirting, she placed a warm hand on his chest and eased him back again. “I’ll be back when things calm down, gorgeous. In an hour or so, it’ll be a ghost town out there. You’ll likely be transferred to another hospital in the morning. They won’t want to discharge you in your condition.”

“I need my…personal effects.”

Turning her sharp gaze on him, she quipped humorlessly, “I saw your personal effects, Ryder. I’m betting you’d be happy if I just brought your wallet and gun, right?”

“Don’t look at me like that, Tiff. I got a killer on my tail. Of fuckin’ course I want my one and only weapon.”

Sighing, she folded her arms across her chest. “I don’t see how that’s going to happen. The social workers log it and lock it upon arrival. I don’t even have access to it.”

“I can’t protect us without a weapon. Can you bring me one in somehow?”

Her eyes got huge. “Are you seriously asking me to bring you a weapon? No, absolutely not. I don’t mind helping you stay alive, but I’m not going to end up in an orange jumpsuit over bringing a perfect stranger a weapon.”

“So, you think I’m perfect?”

Her eyes widened. “What? No. That was a figure of speech.”

Ryder smirked. “You already called me gorgeous. I think you do like the look of me.”

She glared back at him. “Don’t even think of trying to sweet talk me into breaking the law. I won’t do it. Not for you or any other hot guy.”

“So, now I’ve stepped up to hot?” For some godforsaken reason, he couldn’t stop himself from flirting with the adorably innocent nurse. Now was so not the time, but Junior was raring to go.

Rolling her eyes, she folded her arms over her chest. “Sure, you’re hot. Are you happy now?”

“Come, sit on Daddy’s lap.” Where the fuck did that come from? Ryder realized in that moment that his dick was doing all the talking.

“You’re freaking unbelievable. You don’t have time for shit like that. You’re a walking dead man, remember? Get your head together.” The woman’s face was flaming red. Whether it was from true anger or embarrassment, he couldn’t tell, but it was fucking sexy as hell.

Her harsh words felt like getting doused with cold water.

“Whatever you say, Nurse Stone.” He heard his tone of voice change as he edged into asshole mode again. Something about being brought up short by the hot nurse seriously aggravated him. She was all kinds of right about how this wasn’t the time or place, but it still pissed him off.

There would never be an appropriate time for a woman like her to sit on his lap. This was a fact he was all too aware of, and it had him feeling some kind of way.

Tall Chimneys: A British Family Saga Spanning 100 Years by Allie Cresswell! Brilliantly Written Must Read!

15 Dec

Tall Chimneys: A British Family Saga Spanning 100 Years

By Allie Cresswell

tall1

Considered a troublesome burden, Evelyn Talbot is banished by her family to their remote country house. Tall Chimneys is hidden in a damp and gloomy hollow. It is outmoded and inconvenient but Evelyn is determined to save it from the fate of so many stately homes at the time – abandonment or demolition.

Occasional echoes of tumult in the wider world reach their sequestered backwater – the strident cries of political extremists, a furore of royal scandal, rumblings of the European war machine. But their isolated spot seems largely untouched. At times life is hard – little more than survival. At times it feels enchanted, almost outside of time itself. The woman and the house shore each other up – until love comes calling, threatening to pull them asunder.

Her desertion will spell its demise, but saving Tall Chimneys could mean sacrificing her hope for happiness, even sacrificing herself.

A century later, a distant relative crosses the globe to find the house of his ancestors. What he finds in the strange depression of the moor could change the course of his life forever.
One woman, one house, one hundred years.

EXTRACT

The relationship between Evelyn and the revolting estate manager, Sylvester Ratton, provides much of the drama and tension in the story of Tall Chimneys. He is older than her, and much worldlier. He is in a position of power in the house, while she is a newcomer, naïve and there under sufferance. I wanted all these things to come over in their first encounter. At the same time I wanted to show that Evelyn has some spirit – she is not afraid of him. The scenes between Ratton and Evelyn were some of the most enjoyable to write.

An evening with Mr Ratton

So, back to Tall Chimneys I went. I was admitted back into the household, as I had left it, with indifference, given some draughty rooms in the north wing and more or less left to my own devices. I was eighteen years old.

George and Rita were only rarely at Tall Chimneys. To their credit, though, using, I presume, funds from Rita’s wealthy papa, they did initiate a programme of repairs and modernisation to the house; under their benefaction we had improved plumbing and electricity produced by a noisy generator installed in the cellar. We had a telephone but it was very unreliable, the wires strung across the moor and through the trees were very vulnerable. These up-grades, the house, lands and tenant farms were in the hands of George’s agent, Sylvester Ratton, who oversaw their management in George’s absence. Ratton was perhaps ten or twelve years my senior, a man of few personal charms but large ambition; I took an instant dislike to him. He had round, lashless eyes and a small, misshapen blob of a nose. Nothing escaped him, not the least suggestion of an extra bucket of coal in the servants’ hall or the hint of a purloined hare in a ploughman’s pot. He sniffed out and came down hard on any perceived misdeed, reducing housemaids to tears for the smallest misdemeanour and dressing down farm-workers in a voice which carried from the estate office, behind the stables, to the morning room without any tempering of volume or expletive colour. While parsimonious with others, he denied himself nothing, living, while George and his wife were in town, as de facto owner of the house, lording it over the servants and tenant farmers, occupying the second best suite of rooms and wolfing down the choicest of comestibles and the finest wines in the cellar.

The first evening of my residence we dined together, he at the head of the table, me at the foot – a ridiculous and anti-social arrangement which made conversation difficult and made extra work for the servants. It soon became clear that these things were entirely by Mr Ratton’s design. He enjoyed sending the staff scurrying hither and thither, rejecting dishes and then changing his mind about them so they had to be brought in again. He spoke to me as though from a great height as well as a great distance, emphasising my extreme smallness and insignificance.

‘You are lucky,’ he stated, heavily, to me, ‘that your brother and sister in law are prepared to accommodate you here. Many girls in your situation would have been placed elsewhere and expected to make their own way. Perhaps in the end you will think it might have been preferable.’

I told him in a quiet but prideful voice that I felt my good fortune. I would make the best of being allowed to return home.

‘One wonders,’ he mused, swilling wine around a heavily embellished goblet, ‘why they did not accommodate you in town. Perhaps,’ he gave a twisted, almost suggestive grin, ‘they consider the tone there unsuitable. They do entertain some rather… outré guests.’

I made no reply to this observation.

‘The house is sadly depleted since you were last here and George is here but rarely,’ Ratton went on to observe. ‘You will lack for company. You will be lonely. It is hardly suitable. Some might say it is hardly respectable. You ought to have a female companion.’

The idea of the smug, porky individual at the far end of the table posing any kind of threat to my maiden reputation was laughable, but I restrained myself from saying so. It was on the tip of my tongue to suggest that, if he felt the delicacy of my situation so keenly, he ought to move into the agent’s quarters which I knew were provided for him above the estate office. ‘I will use the time to improve myself,’ I said instead. ‘I shall enjoy the outdoors when the weather is fine. When it is not, the library is well-stocked.’

‘Indeed.’ He nodded. ‘No doubt your education has left you lacking in real knowledge. Girls are taught accomplishments, merely. I cannot think your schooling will be much use to you here.’

I felt stung. This accusation was unfair; my schooling had been pretty thorough in arts and humanities although rather coy on the subject of science.

‘While your brother is from home, I run the house very frugally,’ he told me. ‘I told Jones to serve dinner tonight to celebrate your arrival, but after this we will take it separately, in our rooms, unless there is company. You will not find it very convivial.’

I wanted to laugh at Ratton’s idea of a celebratory meal; nothing could have been colder or less hospitable than the atmosphere at table. The prospect of dining alone, even in my rooms, which were dour enough, was a preferable prospect.

‘Of course,’ I agreed. ‘I shall try to incommode your arrangements as little as possible.’

Clearly, having gained his object, Mr Ratton lapsed into silence.

 

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

****5 STARS****

Brilliantly written family saga! I am somewhat at a loss of words! I was pulled in from the very beginning of Evelyn’s story, and what a story it was….pain, loss, betrayal, secrets, romance, and second chances. It spanned 100 years, and I hung on to every word Evelyn spoke.

Evelyn is the youngest child born unexpectedly to her parents. Throughout her life, she was considered a burden to her family. When her parents died, she was sent to live with an older sister. She was happy there, but when she became an adult, she was sent back to her family estate, Tall Chimneys. She is happy to be back there. She did have fond memories there with the family who lived in the gatehouse, and of spending time with Kenneth, the young handy man. However, when she returns, it’s not like she remembers it. The family is gone as well as Kenneth. This begins her journey to save her home at all costs, possibly costing her own happiness and freedom.

Through the decades, many characters pass through the doors of Tall Chimneys. Some of them are good and bring Evelyn much joy and happiness, and others bring her pain. Evelyn is a very relatable character. She isn’t perfect; she’s human. At times, I felt so sorry for her and her isolation, but she made those choices. Those choices are what made me so frustrated with her. One thing is certain. She had was a strong woman. She endured things I can’t imagine, but she endured it and lived quite a long life. It was amazing to see history unfold through the different decades of time.

What amazed me about this book was that the house itself was a main character in this novel. It had its own personality and pulled me into the story as much as Evelyn did. Its story was just as important as hers because the two were so intertwined and connected. Cresswell’s descriptive writing put me right there. I could see John’s artwork and the beauty of the home. I was sitting at the kitchen table at dinner with the American soldiers who were staying there during World War II, being a part of their discussions. I was there in the gatehouse which was such a source of happiness for Evelyn.

As soon as I thought Evelyn’s story had ended, the author gave us another at the end. It brought everything full circle and made perfect sense. WOW! I loved spending the day with Evelyn and hearing her story. My one regret is having to leave Evelyn and Tall Chimneys behind.

Q & A with Allie Cresswell

 

  1. How did you come up with the idea for this book?

Initially I heard a news report about an elderly lady found living in squalor and penury in the servants’ quarters of her once-magnificent stately home, and it got the imaginative juices flowing. Secondly, Downton Abbey came to a conclusion and it left me wanting to know how grand houses like that one survived the years from the 1930s onwards, so I started doing some research and found that many of them didn’t. Lastly it came to me that while large country houses were a dying breed in the years after WW1, the fate of women was on the up, with the vote, matriculation, birth control and a shortage of men all meaning that women could step into roles they had been debarred from before. All these ideas coalesced into Tall Chimneys.

  1. What was your favourite thing about each character?

I liked Evelyn’s grit and resilience as well as her naivety. She has such fortitude. I admired John’s creativity as well as finding him powerfully attractive! I think Kenneth is my favourite character. Without giving too much away, he stepped out of the shadows in a way I hadn’t expected and his silent presence elbowed its way into the plot with a strength which took me by surprise. I thoroughly enjoyed writing Sylvester Ratton, imbuing him with every mean and vicious characteristic I could come up with.

  1. Do you have a playlist you listen to when writing?

No. I find any kind of background noise very distracting. I like to write in silence. However, when I take a break I find the classic serials and plays on the BBC iPlayer really enjoyable, and I always stop at 2pm for The Archers!

  1. Any favourite foods/drinks you like while writing?

Lots and lots of tea, and the odd plateful of hot buttered crumpets which magically appears at my elbow from time to time.

  1. When did you know you wanted to be a writer?

I must have been about seven. The teacher asked us to write about a family occasion and I chose to write a long, harrowing and entirely fictional account of my grandfather’s funeral. I had never even met him, but I decided he had been a Vicar (which I spelt ‘vice’) and lavished on the details of weeping relatives and the horse-drawn ‘hurst’. I didn’t finish the story during the time allotted and the teacher allowed me to go on with it over the next few days. Mum was confused to be offered condolences when she went to parents’ evening. The teacher had thought she was giving me the opportunity to expiate my grief, whereas in fact (as Mum knew all too well) it was only an excuse to get out of learning my times tables, something I have never achieved. BUT, the thrill of making up stories and writing them down was born and has never left me.

  1. What are your favourite reads?

I love most nineteenth century classics: The Barsetshire books of Anthony Trollope, Jane Austen, Dickens and the Brontes. Writers like RF Delderfield, Howard Spring and Daphne du Maurier are rarely read these days, but they are brilliant story tellers. I recently read North of Here by Laurel Savile, and was blown away. I hope she writes more.

A Note from Ella:

To all my wonderful readers,

I know I had originally stated that TRUE (Temptation Series VI) would be released on January 2nd, and while that is a wonderful date, I find that I can’t keep these men and their happily ever after to myself any longer.

So today, as the cover of the sixth book in the Temptation Series is revealed so is the NEW RELEASE DATE: December 21st ❤ ❤

MUAH,

Ella

True – adjective: That which is accurate or exact.

I dare you to try.

I think you’re my truth.

Terrify me.

Marry me.

Marry me.

Marry me…

Four years ago, Logan Mitchell walked into Tate’s life and challenged him to see it differently.

He dared Tate to try a kiss, when normally he wouldn’t have.

He begged him to take a chance, when he probably shouldn’t have.

But most importantly, he asked Tate to trust that he would love him, and he did. From that moment on, Tate realized exactly what his life had been missing—Logan.

Happily-ever-afters come in many different forms. But for Tate Morrison, there’s only one ending he wants. The one where the guy marries the guy and true love conquers all.

Now all he has to do is tell Logan.

Join Logan and Tate as they finally realize what the rest of us knew all along. That they belong together for better or worse—always.

Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled the world, and collected friends from all across the globe. Friends who’d be happy to report that she is a rubbish companion, always forgets people’s birthdays and never sends Christmas cards.

She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.

Adriana Locke:

A contemporary romance author running on coffee and sticky kisses from my rowdy four little boys.

From Indiana, I’m a true Mid-Westerner. Life, for me, is about family, faith, and food. When I’m not running my kiddos around or having a lunch date of fajitas with my husband (and high school sweetheart), you can find me outside. I love a good sunny day almost as much as I love candy, random quotes, and steamy bad boys in fantastic books.

I’m on nearly every social media platform. Please find me on the ones you frequent – I love chatting with readers.

Mandi Beck:

Mandi Beck has been an avid reader all of her life. A deep love for books always had her jotting down little stories on napkins, notebooks, and her hand. As an adult she was further submerged into the book world through book clubs and the epicness of social media. It was then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer.

A nursing student, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met.

Emma Scott:

I write romances with flawed characters, characters with artistic hearts: builders, poets, and writers of various makes and models. I love to write book lovers; those who have found refuge, companionship, and escape in books, much as we do in real life. I like realism, honesty, authenticity in storytelling. I love to write about enduring love, soul-deep love, in as real a setting as I can make, but with big smooshy HEAs. I believe in diversity, open-mindedness, and inclusion. I like sweetness mixed with steam, love conquering all, and above all, hope. Love always wins.

Meghan Quinn:

A BLONDE AT HEART

 

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

 

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

 

​Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Kate Stewart:

Kate Stewart lives in Charleston, S.C. with her husband, Nick, and her naughty beagle, Sadie. A native of Dallas, Kate moved to Charleston three weeks after her first visit, dropping her career of 8 years, and declaring it her creative muse. Kate pens messy, sexy, angst-filled contemporary romance as well as romantic comedy and erotic suspense because it’s what she loves as a reader. A lover of all things ’80s and ’90s, especially John Hughes films and rap, she dabbles a little in photography, can knit a simple stitch scarf for necessity only and does a horrible job of playing the ukulele. Aside from running a mile without collapsing, traveling is the only other must on her bucket list. On occasion, she does very well at vodka.

So far she’s written books in several romance sub-genres including new adult, contemporary, paranormal and romantic suspense.

Beauty is only skin deep. Appearances aren’t everything. It’s what’s on the inside that counts.

 

Blah, blah, blah.

 

At thirty-two, Jen Malone knows one thing – life isn’t worth anything if you’re not wanted. And how does she know know this? Because the only person she’s ever wanted no longer wants her.

 

To Jen, image is everything. And five years ago, after a public divorce from a handsome and famous artist, that image was torn to shreds. The man whose career she helped build is now nothing but a memory, a thorn in her otherwise perfectly honed exterior. A piercing little sliver that needles and festers whenever she looks at their daughter. The daughter who reminds her of the husband she couldn’t hold on to. The daughter who was the reason he left in the first place.

 

When Jen’s vehicle breaks down and puts her the path of mechanic Miles Wright – a person who is her polar opposite – she finds it hard to relate to his laidback attitude. Miles could care less about his image or what people think of him. Being around him puts her on edge, because a man who judges people by their insides isn’t going to find anything pretty when he looks at hers. Then again, she could care less what a blue-collar grease monkey thinks of her. Right? Right …

 

Just as Jen begins to reevaluate everything she thinks she knows – about life, about love – her past comes calling, leaving her to decide what’s more important: her image or her heart.

 

 

DANIELLE’S REVIEW

*****5 STARS*****

HOLY BUTTERFLIES!! This book is amazing!!!

After her divorce, Jen Malone has become a bitter woman. She thinks it’s definitely better to be a “cold bitch instead of a naive fool.” She knows how to use her looks and fake smile to get what she wants and is used to manipulating any situation. Until the day she gets a flat tire and finds herself at the mercy of a mechanic who isn’t mesmerized by her good looks.

Miles has learned to not judge anyone by their appearance, that it’s what is on the inside that counts. Even though Jen is beautiful on the outside, Miles isn’t going to be persuaded to do her any favors when he sees her insides aren’t pretty at all. When Jen finds herself rebuffed by the “lowly mechanic” and in need of his help more than once, she decides it might be time to take a look inward and what her life has become. But will it be too late to make a change?

This story was fantastic!! When it started, I wondered how I could read a book if I couldn’t stand the main character at all. But once I met Miles, I knew I was going to love this story and I most certainly did!! I devoured this book as quickly as I could because I felt I just had to but now I’m sad that it’s over. I love discovering new authors and Lisa Sorbe is definitely one I will follow from now on. I highly recommend this book!!

About the Author

I grew up in Iowa, where the plains stretch as far as the eye can see and rolling fields of corn lay blanketed beneath eggshell blue skies dotted with clouds as fluffy and thick as pillows. My family was the traditional Midwest breed – we ate sweetcorn by the buckets during summer and spent way too much time shoveling our driveway in the winter. I learned how to swim before I could walk, spent my grade school years building forts and playing kickball with the boys on my street, and annoyed my mother to no end by spending more time reading than I did caring about my hair, clothes, boys, etc. I’ve wanted to be an author since I was four years old and now, after thirty odd years, am finally honoring that little girl’s dream. I currently live in the Pacific Northwest – a beautiful and rugged corner of the world – but spend most of my days dreaming of a move back to Iowa. My first job really was in an auto parts story, and I thank all of my co-workers for instilling in me a love of raunchy humor and a sarcastic wit that knows no measure. I have one husband and one dog who is beyond spoiled. (The dog, not the spouse.) I believe aliens built the pyramids or, at the very least, showed someone how to do it. I mean, really people … Look at the evidence.

 

It’s my firm belief that people can be anything they want to be. And it’s my hope that, as the years pass, we see more of our fellow humans stepping out of their comfort zones and living the life of their dreams.
