I'm Breaking Free, Breaking Through, Breaking Away and getting back into Writing

In one week I will have finished teaching my last college class and I am so excited!! Teaching can be rewarding and challenging, but my writing is where my heart is. And I'm really looking forward to devoting my time completely to my next book, Breaking Away.

When I'm writing I'm neck deep in my character's world and at this moment my character is learning to drop out of sight and survive off the radar, something I had to do a ton of research for him to do. I feel as though I've done that myself for the three last months because of the classes. As soon as they end, and I post my grades, I'll be jumping feet first into the story and writing 10 hours a day. Butt on chair--fingers on keyboard. That's the only way to make headway.

Here's my blurb for Breaking Away:

When Navy SEAL Harold "Flash" Carney agrees to act as an undercover operative for the FBI in an international smuggling sting, he revisits a past he hoped to leave behind forever. During the sting, his handler, the one agent he trusts, is killed and Flash is framed for the man's murder.  Knee deep in a double cross, uncertain of who he can trust, and cut off from his team, he goes on the run with the smuggled goods and money, with only his training to keep him alive.

Samantha Cross is desperate to leave her past as a battered wife behind, but her ex-husband is determined to gain custody of the one thing guaranteed to keep her in his life, their daughter.  Struggling financially, Samantha rents a room over her garage to Flash. When her ex turns stalker, her renter proves as protective as he is secretive.

Despite their mutual wariness, Samantha and Flash are drawn to one another, but trust comes hard. As the walls both have erected start to crumble, Samantha’s daughter is kidnapped, and Flash has no choice but to break away from the ingrained habits of a lifetime to reach out to his team and save what he’s built with Samantha--a family.

 But in the meantime. If you haven't read the first two books, Check them out.



Zoe Weaver is determined never to get involved with a man in uniform. Her father was killed during the Gulf War. Her brother Brett, is in a coma. If that isn’t enough, Zoe has scars both physical and emotional from a hit and run accident that almost cost her a leg. She refuses to lay her fragile self-esteem, or her heart, on the line for a man who puts his military career ahead of his family. But her brother’s commanding officer, Lieutenant Adam “Hawk” Yazzie, triggers a passion beyond her experience. Is she strong enough to love Hawk and, when the time comes, watch him go to war?

Lieutenant “Hawk” Yazzie, is a SEAL. The Navy is his life, and his family. He’s learned the hard way he can’t be there for anyone. He finds Zoe’s combination of feisty femininity hard to resist, but the guilt he carries prevents him from offering a commitment to anyone ---but the Navy. Will he love Zoe and leave her?

When Zoe and Hawk investigate the events surrounding her brother’s injuries, they grow suspicious of three members of Hawk’s team. Hawk is torn between loyalty to his men and his need to see justice done. But when he tries to save a troubled teammate’s career he unwittingly puts Zoe’s life in danger. Can he lead the rest of the team in a rescue operation to save her? Or will one of Hawk's brothers in arms destroy the woman he loves?

What happens when a Navy SEAL wakes from a month-long coma to discover he’s being investigated for murder?

When Ensign Brett Weaver is accused of murder, he knows he’s innocent, but how can he prove it with Naval Investigators breathing down his neck? A chance meeting with reporter Tess Kelly offers him an opportunity to get the press on his side. But can he trust her to keep his other secrets off the record?

Tess works hard to live up to her father's expectations. When Brett offers her information about SEAL training in exchange for an introduction to her award-winning journalist father, she jumps at the chance. The situation Brett lobs into her father's lap is a major scoop.  But the secret she discovers about Brett is just as newsworthy. Will her feelings for this wounded warrior win out, or will she release a story guaranteed to destroy Brett’s SEAL career?

When Tess’s father is kidnapped, Brett’s team is deployed to find him. At the same time, a leak in the investigation puts Tess and Brett’s lives in danger. Will Brett be able to break through the lasting effects of his injuries and prove he’s once again a battle-ready SEAL? Or will he and Tess lose everything at the whim of a vengeful killer?

And if you've read the books, I'd love to hear from you and I'd love some reviews!!!
Read on,

Thanks for commenting Mayas. And yes, I had to do Flash's book next. Even I had to know what happened to him. Ha.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and leaving a comment. And I'm so glad you've enjoyed the first two books. I'm working hard to make the next one just as action packed and emotional as the first two.

I appreciate your comment.
