Genre Contemporary Romance Suspense

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Aden House, successful but driven chef and TV personality, refuses to slow down. His life implodes one night, damaging him both physically and emotionally. He’s rescued by a woman he thinks of as his angel.

Shay McDowell has rebuilt her life after her divorce. She juggles volunteer EMT duties and her job, while dreaming of becoming a chef. She finds her way to Rock House Grill and back into the life of the man she helped save.

Can love be the ingredient needed to survive the many obstacles they face?


Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…

Yes, I also write fantasy and mid-grade. Rock House as a contemporary is new to me. I’ve always considered myself a fantasy/paranormal writer.

How do you come up with ideas?…

Usually an image or lyric spark an idea. One of my fantasy works in progress was inspired by Helm’s Deep in Lord of the Rings. One scene Aragorn and Haldir hugged after a hesitation by the elf. The look on his face became my character for Kíeran in Aimhirghin Kingdom at a Crossroad.

What is the single most important part of writing for you?…

Getting the point across that matter what happens, there’s always hope. It may not be what you had in mind. For example Aden House wanted his restaurant, television show, and to take care of his sister. But choices he made nearly destroyed all of them.

When did you write your first book?…

I had been laid-off from work back in 2009. I struggled with circumstancial depression at the time. Like Aden, I had choices to make. After pulling myself off the couch I decided to follow my dream.
