Six Sentence Sunday

Greetings everyone! It's Sunday once again and you know what that means. Six Sentence Sunday! Today I'm moving on from Astrid Walker and taking you on a little trip to Contemporary Romance land. This is my one and only Contemporary, Coming-of-Age Romance titled Dearly Beloved.

Dearly Beloved is the story of a jaded, young, Black woman suffering from PTSD  who goes on a literal and internal trip of self-discovery with friends twenty-two years after being adopted by a Caucasian family. On this trip she learns: sometimes water is thicker than blood and that love can come in the most unlikely of places. This excerpt is from the first interaction between the heroine and the hero...her older brothers best friend.
          “Andrew,” Renée said in a deceptively sugar sweet voice, glaring daggers a few inches up and over her brother’s shoulder, “aren’t you breaking some leash law for your dog?”
“I’ve missed you too, Renée,” Chris greeted in his sinfully deep baritone, which sent tingles shooting down her spine and a rush of liquid fire pooling between her legs.
Damn, him!
           In black cargo shorts, falling just past his knees, flip-flops, black muscle shirt and dark black tinted Oakley’s hiding his Windex blue eyes, he looked…disgusting! No, she would not think of anything but how gross he looked with his surfer boy blond hair, perfectly tanned muscular calves, arms, and rock hard upper body. If looks could kill…he’d be a nuclear weapon.

And there you have it. Thank you in advance for your comments I love reading them and I try to respond when I can. To check out other awesome authors participating in Six Sentence Sunday visit

Six Sentence Sunday

Wow! Sunday seems to come faster and faster each week, doesn't it? Once again I'm excited to announce another Six Sentence Sunday. That's the good news. The bad news, depending on how you want to take it, is that this is the last excerpt I'll be putting up from my recently completed manuscript Astrid Walker. So, without further ado, here's my six for this week picking up from right where we left off last Sunday:
Confused, Astrid turned around in circles, scanning, attempting to orient herself to the abrupt change of scenery. She glanced down, and damn near pissed her pants at what she saw.
           Wait, could an astral being piss their pants? She didn’t know, but squeezing her eyes closed tight then opening them again, she thought, if there ever were a time for the theory to be tested, it’d be now. Because, yep, she definitely wasn’t in her room anymore. Astrid wiggled her toes in the grainy, warm, broken granules, shifting just her eyes, she gazed down—sand.

Alrighty folks, that's it for Six Sentence Sunday. If you want to check out other awesome authors visit click a name and get to readin' six sentences from either a WIP, completed manuscript, or a published works from a number of many wonderful authors.

Six Sentence Sunday

Happy Sunday everyone! Wow! Sunday already. The week goes far too fast. As you all are becoming accustomed to, it's Six Sentence Sunday. The time authors get together and share six sentences from a work in progress, a completed work, or a published novel.

Today, by popular demand, we again meet Astrid from my completed Supernatural Thriller with romantic elements manuscript Astrid Walker. If you haven't heard about her please check the last couple Sunday posts and check her out. We rejoin Astrid right after she touches the picture of her friend while in her astral body...
            Coming out of her previous crouch, Astrid rose to her full height. Unsteady on her feet, she reached to steady herself on the dresser. It wasn’t there. She blinked repeatedly to clear her still unfocused vision. Like an unexpected flash of a camera, when next she opened her eyes, a bright light assaulted her.
            No, it wasn’t light. It was…the sun.

And there you have it ;-) If you want to check out other authors who are amazing, by the way. Please visit to see their six.

Six Sentence Sunday

Howdy Doody, everyone?! I doody fine. In what is becoming a grand tradition, it is time for Six Sentence Sunday. What's Six Sentence Sunday? A day where several authors post six sentence clips from either their work in progress, something published, or something they've written. I've been doing it for weeks now and I'm here to share mine with you.

Below you'll find another excerpt from my finished manuscript Astrid Walker. A Supernatural Thriller with romantic elements, it's about a woman suffering from nightmare induced insomnia. Upon a suggestion from a friend, she takes a sleep-aid that instead of helping her sleep has a couple scary side-effects...astral projection and dream-walking. This excerpt shows her first experience with dream-walking, she's staring at a picture of her best friend--who doesn't believe her experience--while in her astral body....

“I’m crazy,” she scoffed in her echoic, dreamy, bell voice, “puh-lease. You dress up like Marilyn Monroe for Halloween and I’m the crazy one.” She touched Davin’s image with the tip of her pointer finger—and froze.

A queasy feeling rolled over her.

Eyes focused on the photo, it blurred, rippled as if it were liquid, a loud whooshing rushed through her ears.

Her vision unfocused as if scrambled, it wobbled, shifted—changed.
