Interview and Exclusive Excerpt

I’ve been featured on the blog Emily Reads Everything today to kick off Emily’s Awesome Indies feature.  It’s always exciting to find a blogger willing to help boost the indie signal.  She really does read (and review) a little bit of everything, so if you’re looking for a recommendation, check out her impressive list!

Along with the interview, I’ve given Emily an EXCLUSIVE excerpt of my next book, To Tame a Wild Heart, out spring 2016.

To Tame a Wild Heart

Nomad and desperado Audrey Taylor has carved a living out of society’s fringe using her supernatural abilities and the wisdom of her truck-driver surrogate mother.  Sleeping beneath the open skies and under the radar is all she’s ever needed.  But when an ancient council of witches discovers her powers, Audrey is forced to submit to their control or end up stripped of her gifts and her memories.  Audrey knows better than to rely on or trust anyone and she’s never worked well with others, so it’s just her luck to be assigned the withdrawn and irritable falconer as her mentor.  Even more disturbing is her desire to penetrate his brooding façade and know the man underneath.

Corvin Wright has dedicated his life to the service of the Synod in the hopes of proving himself worthy of his family name.  He values the solace of his duties and finds peace alone among the birds trusted to his keeping, but the Council no longer sees a use for his unique gifts.  His sanctuary is in danger unless he can earn his place by babysitting one of the fledgling witches brought to train in the magical arts.  The task is more daunting than expected when his assigned student turns out to be wilder and more broken than any creature he’s ever cared for.  Her spitfire spirit and dangerous beauty challenge every ideal of the life he thought he wanted, and while Audrey wrestles against her captivity and the bonds of responsibility laid upon her, Corvin searches for a way to tame her wild heart before she breaks them both.

And here is a link to the Pinterest inspiration board for the story:
