Blurb:
Four years after her twin is murdered, Juliet Anderson still struggles with guilt, her parents, and her relationships. Two things keep her from falling into a deep, dark place—dancing and her best friend, Ben. So when Ben decides to play football for New Jersey University, Juliet doesn’t hesitate. She follows. Finally away from her past, there is nothing to stand in the way. Juliet will win Ben's heart.
Then she meets Ben's roommate, Chase.
On probation and hell-bent on adhering to a “new life plan,” aspiring artist Chase leaves his New York City home for New Jersey University and meets Juliet before even stepping foot on campus. For him, their connection is instant. She’s the most vibrant girl he's ever seen. Her colors explode on his canvas, and he's never been more inspired in his life.
Too bad she’s madly in love with his seemingly perfect, good guy roommate.
Excerpt:

He murmurs between kisses, “Juliet, you know I can’t resist you. I don’t want to be the bad guy.” 

I nibble his jawline down to his neck as the train pulls away, leaving us in the empty station. Already a new crowd is forming for the next train. “I needed to kiss you. Thought this would be a good place,” I mumble as I work my way down his neck. 

He turns me around. My back hits the cold wall and I shiver. He holds my face as he studies me, his gaze falling on my lips as I catch my breath. “Should we be together, gorgeous?” he asks. “Could it be that simple?"

122 Rules Cover Reveal. What a Journey!

This has been a very long time coming. I've been working on 122 Rules for the better part of five years. FIVE! Of course in the process I was doing a ton more than just writing this book; I was learning a new profession. Figuring out who I am as an author, taking a tour around the school of Hard Knocks, and completely falling in love with the craft.

I have a much greater appreciation for all those books that grace the shelves of Barnes and Noble and your local library. Someone, actually thousands of someones, spent countless hours toiling over the wording, gallons of elbow grease fixing story lines, and a million gray-matter cycles trying to make their imaginary world a place you'll think of and miss long after you snap closed the cover and put it on the shelf.

In the end, I can say that it was SO totally worth it. Here it is. The finish line is in site, and 122 Rules is about to be unleashed on the world. Eeep!

Oddly, though my book is about a federal assassin that grows a conscience mid-assignment, it's also a love story. You see, during my writer journey, I met and fell in love with the beautiful and brilliant, Erin Rhew. As my very first editor, she and I had some of our very first conversations in the margins of this book. Conversations that amazingly and magically have never stopped.

One of our first pics together!

I've joked that I loved her writing so much, I had to marry the author. :-) But this books wouldn't have come to fruition without her. There's no possibility. Even if I never go anywhere with my writing, even if this is it, I have been a smashing success because it lead me to Erin.

Just another day in the life! Showin' a little 'tude!

Okay, so without further ado, I bring to you the first in the 122 Rules series!


This art was the brain child of myself, ErinAnitaZara, and Matt. See, it really does take a village! The uber-talented Anita from Race-Point, did several iterations under the watchful and creative eyes of Zara and Matt. And with a few final tweaks from the folks at Panda it was done!
