Hello my dear readers! I’m excited to say that today I’ve officially been published for THREE years. On July 1, 2011, my first story, CELESTIAL SEDUCTION, was published by Decadent Publishing as part of their 1Night Stand series.
I still remember the evening (May 1, 2011) when I received a contract offer from Lisa Omstead for the story. I stared at the email in complete shock. The entire submission process happened so fast. I wanted to jump around and shout for joy, but my kids were already in bed. I have many people to thank for helping me to get that story published, including Carol Levesque, Lorna Suzuki, Layna Pimentel, Rebecca Royce, and Valerie Mann.
Since that day three years ago when my first story was made available for sale to the public, I’ve had twenty-three stories published, including seven self-published titles (two as Paisley Brown). It’s been an exciting ride where I’ve met so many wonderful people. I look forward to what the future holds in store for my writing career, as there will be some changes coming. All of them good, I hope.
I will be attending my first author/reader conference in 2015, and I hope to meet you there. If you haven’t heard about ROMANCING THE CAPITAL, hosted by Eve Langlais, check it out!

At the end of his obligated commitment to the Space Service, Frey Berger decides to stay on Earth to further experience human emotions rather than return to Ginnun where his intended has already mated with another. Looking for real love and someone to accept him for what he is, Frey enlists in Madame Evangeline’s popular dating service. Although he does not understand the concept of a one-night stand, he hopes to find his perfect mate.
Carrie Cooper’s husband divorced her for someone who could provide him with children, leaving her with little self-confidence and no desire to let a man hurt her again. Her best friend convinces her to join a dating service, claiming Carrie needs to get laid, while not winding up with a broken heart since her date requires no commitment after the night is over.
Although several misunderstandings nearly derail them before the date has even begun, Carrie and Frey end up becoming closer than they ever believed possible. Still, Frey will need to convince Carrie that her perfect mate isn’t human at all, and that one night can lead to a forever love.
