Happy Tuesday, friends and readers. Today marks the release of FINDING HOPE, book one in the Savage Cinderella Novella series I've been working on. When I originally wrote SAVAGE CINDERELLA and chose to self-publish it five years ago, I had no idea readers would fall so in love with Brinn's story of survival and her journey to finding happiness. It turns out that was only the beginning!
Now you can follow Brinn, Justin, Cody, and a cast of new characters through a series of novellas (30-40k word short novels). Each story will bring a new adventure, another crime to solve, and more danger for Brinn and company as they delve into the world of human trafficking. In FINDING HOPE, we pick up the story a year after Brinn Hathaway’s return from the wild. As she and Justin struggle to work through her recovery, Brinn must come to terms with who she is and discover her place in this strange new world. When Cody asks for her help in solving a kidnapping case for the FBI, it brings her worst nightmares screaming to the surface. But will it be exactly what she needs to finally put it all behind her and move on? Or will it lead her down a path into a dangerous world? A child is missing...and time is running out.

The second book in the series, LOST BOYS, will follow Brinn, Justin, Cody, and Dani into the jungles of Columbia, South America. I'm hoping to have it finished by the end of 2016! Stay tuned.
In other great news, I'm part of an expert panel on health and fitness in this week's (July 4th) issue of Woman's World magazine. I was invited to contribute to their Ask America's Ultimate Experts column entitled, Help! I Hate Exercise. I'm quoted a few times and there is mention of my non-fiction book, OVERCOME YOUR SEDENTARY LIFESTYLE. It's on page 23 of the magazine and I couldn't be more honored to have a mention in such a well-loved national publication. Thanks, Woman's World!
Whew! After all this excitement and hard work, I'm looking forward to some downtime with family next week as we embark on our own adventure--camping and beaching it for the holiday week. What are you guys up to? Any special Independence Day plans? An exotic trip somewhere amazing? Or just staying home and enjoying a cookout with family and friends? I love to hear from readers so feel free to leave a comment below.
I'll randomly choose one name from the comments to receive an e-copy of SAVAGE CINDERELLA or FINDING HOPE ! Reader's choice.
Thank you for all your support and may you have a safe, blessed, and peaceful holiday!
