MATURE READERS 18+
COMING SOON! NOV 3, 2015!!
Vada is Bergen is broke, the black sheep of her family, and moving a thousand miles away from home for grad school, but she's got the two things she loves most: Her art and her best friend - and sometimes more - Ellis Carraway. Ellis and Vada have a friendship so consuming it's hard to tell where one girl ends and the other begins. It's intense. It's a little codependent. and nothing can tear them apart.
Until an accident on an icy winter road changes everything.
Vada is left deeply scarred, both emotionally and physically. Her once-promising art career is cut short. And Ellis pulls away, unwilling to talk about that night. Everything Vada loved is gone.
She's got nothing left to lose.
So when she meets some smooth-talking entrepreneurs who offer to set her up as a cam girl, she can't say no. All Vada has to do is spend a couple of hours each night stripping on webcam, and the "tips" come pour in.
It's just a kinky escape from reality until a a client gets serious. "Blue" is mysterious, alluring, and more interested in Vada's life than her body. Online, they chat intimately. Blue helps her heal. And he pays well, but he wants her all to himself. No more cam shows. It's an easy decision: she's starting to fall for him. But the steamier it gets, the more she craves the real man behind the keyboard. So Vada pops the question:
"Can we meet IRL?"
Blue agrees, on one condition. A condition that brings back a ghost from her past. Now Vada must confront the devastating secrets she's been running from - those of others, and those she's been keeping from herself...

I was born in the 80's, which means I have fantastic taste in music and atrocious taste in hair. I knew at eight years old that I wanted to be a published author when I grew up. Of course, when I was either " published author" was a glamorous daydream where I spent all day in bookstores, signing hardcovers and posing for photo's with fans. In reality, authordom involves lots of bourbon scented tears and neurotic self-doubt. At least there are fewer mullets.
As well as being a writer, I'm a voracious and omnivorous reader. Seriously. I read everything from contemporary young adult to dense, doorstop literary fiction. Some of my favorite writers are Vladimir Nabokov (Lolita), Virginia Woolf (Mrs. Dalloway), F. Scott Fitzgerald (Tender is the Night), and Jeanetter Winterson (Written on the body). I'm a total poetry geek, too - my two absolute favorites are Emily Dickinson an Sylvia Plath.
