When I am not editing or reading (or binge watching Netflix because let’s be honest – it happens), I am often writing. In addition to dabbling in blog writing, I have also published two young adult/new adult romance novels and written/illustrated a children’s book with my husband, Brian Carroll.

Tastes Like Winter

Tastes Like WinterWhen home no longer feels like home – where can you go?

When your best friend won’t listen – who can you turn to?

When love makes you feel weak – how do you protect your heart?

With constant fighting at home, Emma decides working at High Street Books and practicing avoidance is the best method to save her from more heartache.

She doesn’t expect to meet Jake, the shop owner’s nephew, who makes her stomach do crazy things. But Jake is intent on pushing her away, and Emma must ask herself: Is he scared? Or is he hiding something?

Tastes Like Winter is a story of love, family, and friendship and, when everything is uncertain, trying to figure out where you fit in.

Then Comes Spring- the sequel to Tastes Like Winter 

Then Comes Spring At seventeen, among the shift and collapse of family and friends, Emma fell in love. Jake came into her life and saw her in a way no one else did. But Jake was battling his own demons and with each step forward came several steps back.

Four years later, Emma has changed. When she left High Gate so her mother could pursue a new career in Colorado, things were left open ended with Jake. Emma hoped their fragile bond would grow stronger despite their distance, but life doesn’t always work out that way.

Hardened by a broken heart, Emma ditches hopes and dreams in favor of safer choices. But when Jake appears back in her life, she must decide what she wants, what she needs, and what she can’t live without.
