Please provide a physical description of yourself.
I’m tall and more curvy than most. My curly shoulder-length strawberry blonde hair is unruly and I sometimes pull it up in a ponytail.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
After fleeing a troubled past, all I want was to be left alone. I took a yoga instructor position in Colorado Springs to escape the drama in my life, the last thing I need is complications with Devlin Sawyer, a ruggedly handsome retired Navy SEAL. But when I enroll in a women’s weapons class at Devlin’s state of the art gun club, that is exactly what I encounter. With my guard dog, Piper, I navigate the friggin perilous waters of trust, friendship, and learning to ski. Should I give love a second chance?
Who is the significant other in your life?
Devlin Sawyer, a retired Navy SEAL with a fantastic secret.
If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.
What is your birth order?
I’m a twin, first born.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
Magic, you can do anything with it.
Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.
Pizza with thin crispy crust and lots of sauce and cheese.
Tell us about your best friend.
I don’t really have a best friend. I have always kept to myself to keep my talents from being discovered. But one of my employees, Josie is a close friend. She’s impetuous, fun-loving and dependable. She is estranged from her family as I am, so it makes us understand each other.
What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?
Ireland. I’ve love to explore all the ancient castles. And Australia. I love to visit the Australia Zoo.
Where is a place you would never like to return, and why?
Martha’s Vineyard. To many bad memories.
Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?
Devlin’s dad. I’ve met his sister, she’s a hoot, but a polar opposite to him. I’d like to see which of his children are like him.
Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?
My brother. Together we’ve destroyed our family.
If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?
I’d go back to the day I torched my brother’s vampire girlfriend and shattered our family. See if it could have been handled differently.
