Finding Hidden Depths

I LOVE characters who reveal their hidden depths throughout a book. Torek is seven feet of battle-hardened muscle, and although he enjoys and is quite capable in his role as commander of the Onik guard, his caring concern and selfless pursuit of Delaney’s health, happiness and pleasure are depths that Delaney discovers at the risk of losing something far more precious than a bad first impression: her heart.

Nothing Worth Having is Easy to Attain

One of my favorite themes in Beyond the Next Star is Delaney’s emotional journey as she slowly discovers her self-worth in the most unlikely of circumstances. She felt fractured long before being abducted by aliens, but like coal under pressure, maybe she can create something precious and beautiful and indestructible, too. It’s not easy to see yourself with new eyes, but nothing worth having is ever easy to attain.

My Voice in Sci-fi Romance

Check out my new author bio video! Reading and writing romance is my life’s passion, but I’m particularly excited to add my voice to the sci-fi romance genre. Beyond the Next Star allowed me to explore the unconventional parameters that constitute home and family, something my heroine was denied in childhood and torn from in adulthood. But as she discovers through her adventure on Lorien, a home isn’t built with a foundation of concrete but of love.
