Ashlee was thirteen when she discovered her first Kathleen E. Woodiwiss book hidden away in her mom’s closet. After two days of staying home “sick” from school to finish it, she was hooked. Her rabid love for romance has continued ever since, and after a misadventure in the world of law, she finally settled into her dream job of writing about people finding their happily ever afters. Whether writing sweet contemporary romance or romantic thrillers and suspense, she aims to create down to earth heroines and heroes with small town heart.
As the last author to close out this fun summer blog theme, I think it’s only fitting I’m going to go to the dark side. Summer fun? I think I just broke out in hives.
Once the first week of enjoying sleeping in and homework free nights have passed, the pain ensues. Kids whining they’re bored and there’s nothing to do, forcefully slathering everyone up with 1000 SPF for any outdoor adventures, my writing time falling into a big black hole…needless to say, the countdown until it’s all over and I’m dropping them off at school again started yesterday.
Now that I’ve brought everyone down, I will spare a few words to share one of my favorite moments of summer (yes, despite my own whining, I don’t totally hate the season). A moment that helps get me through until the temperature drops and the kids are driving the teachers crazy instead of me. The smell of steaks grilling on the barbecue in the late summer evening, me chilling in the shade with a glass of wine. The kids actually laughing and playing together on freshly mown lawn as plotlines and images of scenes from the next book take form in my mind. That’s a perfect summer moment for me. =)
Am I the only one who is looking forward to the chilly days of fall? Leave a comment below on whether I’m crazy…or whatever you like, and a winner will be randomly selected for an ebook copy of my latest release LOVE YOU MADLY + a $5 gift card from Amazon.
Meredith Sanders was the golden girl in high school—a homecoming queen with a trail of worshipping minions. Now she's all grown up with a trail of failed marriages. The only good thing she has in her life is her brilliant and beautiful teenaged step-daughter...who's missing. But the best man for the job has a serious hate-on for her.
Back in high school, queen bee Meredith made Travis Brennan's life miserable. Since then, he's gone from class geek to a hardened, former SEAL, specializing in private security. As much as he wants to help Meredith's step-daughter, he can't help but clash with the gorgeous woman who once made his life hell.
But as they investigate the increasingly mysterious disappearance, their conflicted past threatens to turn into a very provocative present...
