1. Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I’m an award winning and multi-published author with two rowdy boys and an even rowdier husband. I live in Tennessee.
2. Tell us about your book(s).
The “No Rival” series follows the lives of several MMA fighters. A few of them fight on the legal circuit while others fight in underground matches. I hope more than anything, people will read this series and walk away feeling as if they witnessed a triumph of spirit. Everyone makes mistakes and has to work their back up from the bottom. I like to give people an escape but in a world where people are human. Sometimes, they screw up.
3. Writing – why?
Otherwise, I’d just be the crazy lady who talks to herself at the grocery store.
4. Do you have a favourite character from your book(s)? Why?
McKenna. She is a crazy mess, but fun.
5. What's easier for you, action, or dialogue, or description?
6. Do you have any advice for other writers?
Write every single day even if it’s crap.
7. Is there any genre you won't write and why?
Besides barely-legal erotica, I can’t think of anything I wouldn’t be willing—in the very least—to try.
8. What is your favourite genre and why?
Historical Romance. I can’t write it, but it's what began my love of reading romance, setting me on my path to write it.
9. Do you have conversations with your characters?
10. Do you have any odd (writing) habits?
I don’t know it’s odd, but I used to scratch out notes on every scrap of paper I could find. I would stuff them in my bra until I got home. It was a filing system only I understood.
11. If you could describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
12. If you could invite one character from your books to dinner, who would it be?
Kurt. You won’t meet him until book 4, but he’s one of my favorites.
13. If you could invite one character from someone else's books to dinner, who would it be?
Mal from Kylie Scott’s “Play”
14. Are you a dog or a cat person, why?
Dog. I’m allergic to cats.
15. What's your favourite colour, why?
Pink. I’m a girlie girl
16. Tell us a joke!
There once was a man from Nantucket. :-D

What happens in the fight club stays in the fight club.
Brothers, Rhys and Knox, have been in love with the same woman for years. While Rhys has been open about his feelings toward Mandy, he’s kept her firmly locked in the friend zone. That is, until a night filled with too much alcohol explodes into passion.
Unfortunately, while Rhys doesn’t remember a minute of it, Mandy remembers every detail all too well. As secrets and betrayals begin to unravel their friendship, Knox seizes his chance to—finally—claim Mandy as his own.
With two sexy fighters squaring off to win her heart, Mandy must decide which to choose—the charming reprobate who’s been the center of her desire, yet always wrecks her life, or the merciless bad boy who wants to give her the world.
Inside Scoop: This sexy tale includes male/male encounters that may have you wishing for two sexy fighters of your own.

“Just tell us what you need and we’re your men.”
Ryan’s teasing, upbeat personality kept her smiling and she immediately felt at ease. “Get naked and act natural,” she said, somehow managing to keep a straight face.
Max groaned. “Great. Now there’s two of them. Don’t give him permission, Mandy. We’ll never get his clothes back on.”
“Fine,” she huffed, breaking out her best pout. “You will have to take your shirts off, though.” Max flashed a flirtatious glance her way that left her blushing as he stripped his shirt off. Oddly, she knew he didn’t mean it. Some people were overtly more sexual than others were. It was more of a vibe he owned. It was as if he couldn’t help himself. Of course, the knowledge did nothing to stop her face from burning every time he turned it in her direction. The third time blood flooded her cheeks, she felt Knox’s heat pressing into her back. Her heart slammed against her chest at the contact. He was everywhere. Overwhelming. Unmovable.
“He’s not for you.” His breath fanned across her neck as the whispered warning rang in her ears. The bite in his tone rolled over her skin. As he strode away, she watched the smooth movement of his body. Untamed. The word floated through her mind and she couldn’t let it go. He was a predator. Each time he was near, a shot of adrenaline pumped through her veins when she survived the encounter. One day, she wouldn’t.
After a few posed shots, Mandy focused on the action. “I’d love to get as many pictures as I can, if you want to take turns sparring. I’m not picky. However the three of you choose to pair up is fine with me.”
