Now a little info for those of you who have not had the pleasure of finding out about this lovely and generous lady.



I am a wife, a programmer, and now an author. I have an adorable mini Schnauzer and more books than I have room for. I love reading romance because no matter what may be happening in my life, I can always count on my books to end happily ever after. The day I met my husband was the day I truly began believing in happily ever after. After hearing me complain a few too many times that I had “nothing” to read despite the hundreds of paperbacks scattered around the house, my husband began suggesting I write my own stories. When I finally took his advice I discovered that although I enjoy my day job as a software engineer, my true calling is to be an author.
My sister drilled into me an appreciation for fantasy and mythology, something I try to bring to my books. My début novel, Breaking the Nexus started as a book written for NaNoWriMo and has grown to so much more. It was the conduit that introduced me to a fantastic group of independent authors who have changed my life in unimaginable ways.
When I’m not writing, I’ve found a passion for blogging and interviewing fellow authors. I also love reading (of course!), baking, crochet, sewing sock monkeys, playing video games, and all sorts of random crafts. I have an incurable love of rubber duckie’s and stuffed animals, and I believe nobody should have to grow up if they don’t want.

Breaking The Nexus


Throughout history, myths and legends of extraordinary creatures have been told and retold. Fantastic tales of demons and banshees, gryphons and dragons, and of course, magic. Stories that every child grows to learn are nothing more than fantasy…or are they?


Beyond the world you see lies a hidden realm, the Mythrian Realm, inhabited by all of the creatures you’ve been told are mere fiction. Only one thing lies between humans and the truth: the Nexus. A magical barrier erected millennia ago to separate the two realms, it has stood the test of time. Until now.


For Mythrian Sha Phoenix, magic is nothing new. But when she stumbles upon a portal on the verge of collapse, her fate will forever change. Pulled through the portal into the Human Realm, she lands in the middle of Detective Connor Flynn’s brutal murder scene. Soon it is obvious someone is using blood magic to try to bring down the Nexus. Together, Connor and Sha must work to unravel the secrets before the barrier falls and the realms collide.


The Nexus is breaking and all hell is about to unleash…literally.

OK snippet time Squeee !!!


“I know plenty about them. They have no magic, they have no idea there is any other realms besides their own, and they think we are nothing more than silly stories they hear as children.”
She took a moment to concentrate and form a soft, glowing orb of light to illuminate their path. “Don’t you think it’s interesting that we have protected them for all of these years and nobody really knows why?” From the day she had joined the Sentinels, she had adored the archives, which housed everything Mythrians knew about the humans and their ever evolving technologies.
“I would say it’s more interesting that you care so much, but then I’ve always known you were a bit strange in the head.”
Sha pinned him with a withering glare that only resulted in Luca doubling over with laughter. “You better watch it, Lucarion. Otherwise I’ll be forced to tell Soren you’ve been shirking your duties.”
“Using my full name and vague threats? I’m scared, truly.”
“Remind me to blast you later.”

Review time

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Breaking the Nexus. The only complaint I have is that well I have finished it and I will have months to wait for the next instalment 😦
You build a real connection with both Sha and Connor. The descriptions are absolutely wonderful  and you find yourself being transported to some very realistic scenes. I say no more as I would hate to give anything away! I am very much looking forward to the next instalment. I loved this book and have no complaint hence I am giving it five hearts.
