Here’s the cover to Fuel to the Fire my latest Totally Five Star offering set in beautiful St Lucia. This book was a fun one to write and at the same time so tough to put to words the jumbled mess of emotions Jackie and Logan have for one another.
Anywho, here’s the cover!
What do you think?

As usual, I’ve recently had an avalanche of ideas. Thankfully, the ideas have at least a little something to do with what I’ve been writing lately. As the image above might have given you a clue as to what I’ve got in mind.
Two stories. One set in the ultra-modern, super-hot, fast paced city of Dubai and the other is set in sleepy, snowy, Chamonix. The funny thing is the one set in Dubai is slower paced while the one in Chamonix is going to be all about the adrenaline.
I love the beginning of a story. The excitement, the anticipation, the bright shiny blank page full of possibilities. Some people might find it intimidating, but I love it.
The proposals have been put together and sent off to my editor. Wish me luck!
To celebrate the release of Cuffed I thought I’d do something a little different and share how the story came about.
My stories come from everywhere. Almost anything can spark an idea. Music, a news story, a movie, a colour…it’s just whether or not the idea takes hold and turns into something more. Some stories seem to jump out at me out of the blue almost fully fleshed.
That’s kind of how Cuffed came to be.
I was chatting with an old friend over coffee about story ideas and how I wanted something quick to write but wanted something different. Something that would get me excited to write again (this was during a time when I never actually thought I’d write another book). He turned to me, smiled and said two words, ‘Comic Con’.
It was something we’d both been wanting to go to since we were in high school so that didn’t really come as a surprise but the image his words generated was instant. Two rival YouTubers at Comic Con that are cuffed together as a prank and can’t escape their chemistry.
Et voila! After some fast and furious writing, the story that came out was a mishmash of my own geekiness and a bunch of wish fulfilment that was so much fun to write.
I just hope it’s as much fun to read!
The big day is finally here! Breaking Rossi’s Rules is out and I’m celebrating with a drink and a blog tour!
I also answer questions in an exclusive interview over at my publisher’s site!
Check it out!
Well, July was a hectic month. Between writing a new book, promo articles, synopses and proposals for new books and trying to keep up with my daily life I’ve felt a little harried. Now that everything except contemplating new stories to write and catching up with work around the house I’ve been neglecting, I can decompress a little.
I don’t want to come across as ungrateful, because I’m not. After working so long and hard to get published consistently and to get the promotional opportunities I’ve been given I’m excited and driven to continue. I’m just so drained at the moment and feel as though I’m neglecting other aspects of my life.
I guess it’s all about finding the right balance. Hopefully I’ll figure that out soon. In the meantime get ready for more books from me!
Maybe I’ll take more photos to give my brain a bit of a break. What do you think of the one above?
