I'm currently seeking representation, and writing the remaining books in the Southern Summers series.
Fifteen Days (Southern Summers, Book 1) Genesis Award Finalist & Orange Rose Winner
British actor Matt Roberts has worked his way up the Hollywood food chain, secretly hating every role along the way. But his movies pay the bills for his family, including a manipulative sister and a father with Multiple Sclerosis whose medical treatments are constant and costly. Desperate for a break from his frenzied career and the damaging anxiety it’s brought, he plans a getaway with his best friend. A backwoods Louisiana town is their low-key destination. There, Matt meets Ella, his friend’s cousin.
Ella Stahman is a sassy, down-to-earth accountant hiding from life because of her ex-fiancé, who’d left her blind-sided, brokenhearted, and terrified of the media. Holding tight to her prayers for a private life, Ella’s on edge with Matt’s presence shattering the isolation she’s created. Although she aches for love and finds herself drawn to him, being dragged back into that suffocating, gossip-hungry world isn’t an option.
As Matt seeks Ella, God seeks to lead Matt in a new direction. Is he ready to trade in his SAG card for a Bible?
Two Weeks (Southern Summers, Book 2, in progress)
Since the death of her parents, Raven Sawyer’s life has been on pause. Seven years later and she’s with the same mom-approved guy, living in the same small town, clinging to her only aspiration—not wanting to disappoint her parent’s wishes.
Jackson Graham’s ready for a career change. But being hung up on his public image and proving his ex wrong, leaves his goal of trading acting for teaching, harder than he thinks. To make matters more difficult, his friend’s recent dedication to Jesus has Jackson examining his own heart, a heart that’s been closed off to truly trusting others, including God.
Raven needs money to keep her mom’s photography studio afloat and Jackson requires the help of a local in scouting locations for his rub-it-in-his-ex’s-face directorial debut. Together, will they realize clutching the past will only destroy their futures?
One Month (Southern Summers, Book 3, in progress)
Melanie Carson’s been avoiding her mom since turning eighteen. Five years later, she has the chance to stop the exhausting traveling as a film PA, and start her own business as a personal assistant in her beloved hometown. But the threat of being around her mom, and the secrets she’s kept for her, leaves Melanie antsy about committing to her dream job and replanting her roots.
Samuel Harrison’s family has dark mysteries of its own. He’s left to pick up the pieces of his father’s financial business scandal, and battle a controlling mother. And while his professional life is a vision of OCD on caffeine, his personal life is starving for organization. From grocery shopping to caring for his dog, Melanie Carson is an answer to his prayers, even if his mom doesn’t approve of allowing a stranger access into his home and life.
As Melanie and Samuel’s relationship begins to blur, secrets from both families threaten to turn them against each other.
