Reporter Dayna Dalton’s reputation has been ruined since birth. The

footsteps; never given a chance to prove she’s different. Dana’s been
in love with Clay Finnes since she was a teenager. Her unrequited love
for Sheriff Finnes leaves her empty. He’s happily married and
unavailable. Instead, Dayna finds herself stuck in the revolving door of
bad relationships. But this is Bulwark, Georgia, a town where strange
things are always happening. Dayna is doomed to this loveless life until
she can find someone who will appreciate the depth of her character.
Can she overcome her fears and look beyond her own perceptions to accept
a greater love?

The crisp, clear sunlight was not her friend. Dayna Dalton winced at the bright light that squeezed in through the slats of the venetian blind. She reached over and gave the cord a hard tug, sending the pint-sized bathroom into near darkness. Behind her, the shower head dripped with a steady plop, plop that reminded her of the exposé she did on water torture in Guantanamo Bay that never got published. It was deemed too harsh to print.
The Bulwark Advance preferred her to write…fluffy pieces.
She sneered thinking of the crap on her computer, the half-written article
about the elusive Easter Bunny that awaited its final edit. She hung her head
in shame, thinking of what her sorority sisters from Georgetown would feel if they knew where Dangerous Dayna Dalton had ended up. There’d be hell to pay in the form of eternal humiliation.
Dayna twisted the faucet, her freckled knuckle turning bone white from the effort. It was no use; the leak continued relentlessly, driving a hole in her throbbing head. Oh, that last round of shots was totally not necessary.

Interview with the Author

What initially got you interested in writing?

I was in a funk after losing my mother after a two-year battle with cancer. My kids tried to distract me with a contest. We each created characters and wrote a rough draft of a book. Mine was voted one of Kirkus’ Best of 2012, and I was hooked.

How did you decide to make the move into being a published author?

Self-publishing is easy. It made the idea of publishing viable for anyone. I learned a lot over the years. I have published over fifty books in assorted genres from Children’s books to self-help, to adult fiction, under two different pen names. I have been traditionally published by a publisher and will say, I like being an indie better.

What do you want readers to take away from reading your works?

I want them to lose themselves in the story. I want a frazzled mom to be swept away from her busy schedule. I want a stressed executive to decompress by reading. I want a lonely person to forget what they are missing while they are immersed in my stories.

What do you find most rewarding about writing?

People I have never met have read my stories, my words. It’s intimate, like we’ve shared something very personal. It’s a profound experience.

What do you find most challenging about writing?

Editing and formatting. Everything else is pure joy.

What advice would you give to people who want to enter the field?

Go on Goodreads and talk to other authors. Learn about what the road ahead will be like. Don’t quit your day job.
