The Future Chosen


The nation of Isla has a law: No two politicians from the same family. Two elected officials who marry make their families one; only one can continue to serve.

In the future, Maria Lourdes and Andres Miguel could very well be their country’s best and most influential leaders. She could be president one day, like her grandmother. He could be a senator one day, like his uncle. Marrying another politician is against the law, but why should it matter? Today they’re just young people who want to be together.

They’ll deal with the rest of it tomorrow.

SparkNA new books this month!


New stuff! This month! I’m so excited to see these. Spark Books is a new-adult imprint of Anvil Publishing, and they will have a LOT of new romance books in stores before the end of the year. These new releases were selected from the SparkNA class we had in 2015, where authors signed up to write a new-adult novel based on guidelines and a schedule that I set. As workshop sponsor, Anvil Publishing had first dibs on the submissions. December 2016, the first batch of books are coming out in print, and they look awesome.

Watch out for these in local bookstores! At least ten new books soon!
