The Crazy Beautiful

I feel anxious and impatient because I really am so very excited to be sharing this next book with you. Josh and Riley's complete story. Man, it's such a roller coaster ride. My emotions have been and continue to be all over the place with these characters that have consumed my mind for over a year. It's such a beautiful journey as the author, though. To take these characters and help them grow and learn. To turn something tragic into a lovely piece of music. Love this job. I bring them to life on pages and they let me breathe another day. It's a crazy beautiful thing. #EmbracingTheCrazyBeautiful

*Embrace the Moment

Torn apart by a tragedy, pushed together by fate. Nothing is coincidence.

Riley and Josh have been through it all together, first as best friends and now as a couple.

Faced with a decision that will test their relationship, these two learn to fight harder than ever before to keep their hearts intact. Once the decision is made, there is no going back. With the past creeping into their present, and miles between them, they learn nothing is easy. Every moment matters.

Can Riley and Josh survive the first year of college apart? Will their love remain strong enough to embrace every moment that belongs to them? Or will someone from the past interfere, take what he wants and ruin them forever?

Josh's poem

In her world love is temporary.
Forever isn’t even in the vocabulary.
In my world she is love.
She is forever.
All is possible when we’re together.
Stars are hung just for us.
Shining bright when things get rough.
Guiding her back to me. Back home.
Back into the arms where she belongs.
The music lies underneath
the many moments when we can’t breathe.
She’s the melody.
I’m the harmony.
Our rhythm becomes everything.
I have to find her in the dark.
Nothing works when we’re apart.
Show her beauty.
Regain her trust.
Immerse her in all of my love.
Prove her wrong.
This is real.
Let the music help us heal.
Bonding, yet barely breathing
in another moment all too fleeting.
No mistakes. No regrets.
No more lies and no more threats.
No more miles in between.
A final moment for us to sing.
Hand in hand, hearts entwined.
The past let go and left behind.
In breaths and heartbeats, our life is measured.
Not failures or miles, but in moments we shared.
She erased the doubt. I embraced the moment.
Shifting apart then shifting together.
Can we finally emerge into forever?

I want to fly

I seriously hate when I doubt myself. It's not something I can just shut off. It's a life trait that I carry, wired into my DNA or something. Thinking I'm not good enough to chase what I want. That it will hurt when I'm let down so I just settle because then it won't hurt as bad. That I should just be content instead of going after the, "MORE," that I want so badly. It's like writing songs...creating music. My true passion is that, yet I've never attempted to let it go somewhere more than my notebook. I share it now in my books and I give it to my characters, giving them what I wish I had the courage to achieve myself. Truth is, I wish more than ever that I could escape the doubt like Riley Shaw. I wish that I had embraced every moment like Joshua Parker and I hope to do that. I wish that I could emerge into forever with all my dreams coming true. In the end, it's not something I can write into a novel and have it happen like magic. I'm going to have to work for it. I'm going to need to believe in myself, see my dream, see my passion—GOAL set and grab the hell out of it. I'm not bold and I play it safe instead of taking chances. I'm wired this way, wired to not dive off of the cliff because the bottom will hurt like hell. I guess now I'm thinking what if I don't hit the bottom, though? What if I fly? One step into something that might not let me down, but could in fact, set me free. Free to be myself. Free to believe in something bigger than I ever had before. Goal set. I want it. One step closer to the edge...
