I AM DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE THAT LIGHT THE FIRE, BOOK FIVE OF THE LIVE OAK SERIES IS NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON
This is Jennifer and Cody’s story. With every book I write, I try to push my own personal envelop. This time, I yielded to the persuasion of two friends to do something I have never done, use real people in my stories. Jennifer and Tina are the real people. Both readers, both wanted to be the lead in a book. I explained I didn’t work that way.
I can tell you both ladies could rule the world if they set their minds to it. In a moment of insanity, I agreed to do a book for each. I had already decided that Cody was going to be the next hero. Since Jennifer had a massive crush on him when she read Book Four of the Live Oak Series, Jennifer got to go first.
Fortunately, I reengaged my brain cells and told Jennifer to decide what she wanted to look like and write it down. I may have been insane enough to agree to this idea but I intended to remain friends with Tina and Jennifer after I used them in each book. I absolutely didn’t want to hear any negative feedback about physical descriptions and two very determined women wanting to figuratively murder me f0r giving them the wrong hair style or body shape. By the way, I kept the list of characteristics for evidence. I might be insane but I’m not dumb.
SO LIGHT THE FIRE WAS BORN
Jennifer has come home to Live Oak. Cody was her best friend, her partner in crime when any prank was pulled, the boy she had almost loved. He is now the sheriff of the county. Ten years away has changed her. She has her Masters degree, a divorce and a need to find herself again. She had thought she loved, had married and discovered betrayal, lies and violence. Once was one time too many. No victim, she had defended herself the first time.
Now she is back. The future is hers to dream and to build.
Cody wants her. He understands the value of patience. He knows when to step back and when to challenge. This time there is was no plan in place that means hundreds of miles of separation and at least four years of intense commitment to something besides each other. This time nothing separates them but memories and a man who wants revenge and is willing to kill to get it.
