Paper Flowers is coming soon!

I know it's been a while but I haven't been a total slacker because I have a new book coming out!

To make up for my long unexcused absence here's a little sneak peek!





        Peyton had asked for his food to go so I scrambled to come up with something to keep him here just little bit longer.
        “You’re in my first hour, right?” I asked with a coy smile, like I didn’t already have his entire schedule memorized.
        I also already knew his middle name (Thomas), birthdate (April 11th), and his mother’s maiden name (Petree), but he didn’t need to know that because if he did, he’d probably think I was some sort of stalker. In reality I just took researching my conquests very seriously. 
        “Um, yeah. You’re, uh, Cami?” He remembered my name!
        “Yep, that’s me. The one and only.” That was a little awkward. Recover, recover!
        He smiled. He had really nice teeth. Straight and white. Good dental hygiene is very important.
        “I’m Peyton.”
        “I know.” Did I seriously just say that? “So, uh, you’re new, right?” That’s not any better—of course he’s new. C’mon, brain, work with me here. 
        It was like I was unable to form an intelligent sentence around this guy. I blame the perfect teeth for turning my brain into mush.
        “Yep,” was all that he said. 
        So he wasn’t very loquacious. It was okay. Talking’s overrated anyway. Still, I wasn’t ready to give up yet.
        “Sooo, what brought you to Stone Creek?” I asked, fishing for anything that might keep him here a little longer. 
        “My dad got a new job.”
        “Oh, cool, me too.” Wait, what? “I mean, my dad didn’t get a job. I mean, he has a job, just not a new job.” Ohmygod. This was a total nightmare. 
        Somewhere in the back I heard Oliver chuckle at my expense. Jerkface. 
        “That’s good,” Peyton said, chuckling softly. Apparently I had lost all capability of engaging in a normal conversation. “Well, I’ll see you around, Cami.”
        “You betcha.” You betcha? What the hell was wrong with me today? I normally wasn’t this incompetent when it came to talking to boys. As soon as Peyton left the building I slid down to the floor and covered my face with both of my hands.
        “Smooth, very smooth,” Oliver teased as soon as the coast was clear.
        “Shut up!”
        “He’ll be throwing pebbles at your window in no time.”


Coming January 23rd but you can preorder now!

    Hello! Welcome to my page! I'm terrible about updating it but my goal is to do better this year so when Lizzy Ford came up with the Spring into Romance Facebook Hop I jumped right on!  What a fantastic idea, right?! Lots of new authors to meet and prizes to win!  For my giveaway, I decided to giveaway one of my books that is particularly close to my heart,   Pieces of Me Aria Watkins’s life was on the perfect path, or so she thought. She and Sean had big plans for their future together. They were going to go off to college, get married, and have 2.5 kids. But when tragedy strikes, it destroys the heart of Aria and she's afraid she'll never be the same.  Heartbroken and confused, Aria starts college a completely different person. She hardly recognizes the broken girl she's become, but she can't seem to find the strength to put back together the pieces either.  Enter Holden Whitmore.  He's charming, considerate, and he's

The "C" Word

It's probably the scariest word out there. At least I can't really think of a single word that effects me as much as the "C" word does. Just 6 little harmless letters strung together and it leaves me completely breathless. I guess I should probably start at the very beginning. Last August I went in for my normal yearly exam. My midwife Sue asked me how I was feeling and I was literally just complaining like a little whinebag at the time. I told her I had a super bad cough that wasn't going away no matter how many different kind of over the counter cough medicine I had been taking. Nothing was working and sometimes I would wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air. She felt my throat and said I felt "knotty" so she wanted me to get some labwork done. I asked why and she seemed hesitant to tell me. I told her I was just going to go home and google it and jump to the worse-possible-scenario conclusion. So she told me that it could be just a coup
