Without Hesitation

I am pleased to announce that my new book, Without Hesitation (Beyond Earth: Book One) has been released. You should be able to find it in all the normal places. Links will be included on the page for the book.

The main characters in this book are 19-20 years old. I think teens would benefit a lot from reading it, but it is something that should be up to their parents.

I am planning on a trilogy and I'm already working on book two, so I'm hoping to have it out before long. I know you all like dates, and I can't give you that, but as soon as it's done, I will have it out.


Without Hesitation is set a thousand years in the future. Earth has become a wasteland. Humans traveled into space to colonize other suitable planets. Labels and stereotypes are a thing of the past and gender and sexual identity are as fluid as love as humans strive to survive. Here we meet Everleigh, the commander of her ship named Nirvana. She is under the control of an evil madman, Caspar, who keeps her family captive. He sends her to Valinor to abduct the Empress Akacia. When she arrives, she is taken back by Akacia's beauty and when the Empress fights back, Everleigh realizes she has met hr match.

Note: This is a LGBTQ story with a female/female relationship.

Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Popular saying. What does it mean?

"Beauty cannot be judged objectively, for what one person finds beautiful or admirable may not appeal to another."

"The perception of beauty is subjective."

In short, what I find beautiful, you may not.

Why am I blogging about this today? Every once in a while I'll read some of the reviews people have left for my books. A couple say something along the lines of why is this character beautiful or why don't authors write about ugly characters?

I write in first person (only one of my books is NOT in first person). When that character describes someone, they might say, "She was beautiful." "He was gorgeous." And so on. It only means that my character found this other person attractive. It doesn't necessarily mean he/she is the hottest person who has ever lived. I might not think the person is attractive. You might not. But the character whose POV it's in, does.

I urge readers to remember this when reading books. What the author or character perceives as being beautiful, others may not.

Upcoming Book

I'm writing a story with LGBT characters set in a world where sexuality is fluid, labels aren't used, and everybody is accepted. In my world, nobody blinks an eye when your lover is the same gender as you are.

Without Hesitation is about two women who fall in love. It's a f/f love story. It is NOT a coming out story because 1,000 years in the future, there's no need to come out. It's still full of all the things you love me to write - drama, angst and obstacles they must overcome. I hope you will read it.

I wonder if the way of thinking will change in my lifetime? Yours?

Our world is cruel. Everyday I read stories of LGBT people being horribly treated. When will this stop? I support all people, all rights. Why should sexuality matter? Why can't society accept anyone who is different and why is it even considered different?

Love is love.

Cover Reveal - Without Hesitation

It's been a while, I know. Writing books is not easy or fast. The stories might come to me easily, but getting those thoughts onto paper that readers will enjoy is much harder. I hope that many of you will like my new series, Beyond Earth. It's a new adult, sci-fi story, set in the future after humans leave Earth to find other planets to inhabit.


It will be available on all major platforms SOON!
