Paisley Hull fell in love at sixteen; the forever kind of love: unexpected, passionate, consuming - her first. She never thought she could walk away from that kind of passion. Ignoring her heart, guided by her head, she never looked back. Blindsided by the beauty of a tiny, hazel-eyed vixen, Jake Grant fell head over heels in love, vowing to keep her protected and not let his past taint her. He may have been overzealous in his attempts to show her how much he cherished her but he never thought she would walk away without a fight. Nine years later, a now divorced Jake has a chance encounter with an engaged Paisley just a few short weeks before she is set to walk down the aisle. Wondering if they gave up too easily, the two embark on a journey through the jagged edges of their past. Can they overcome the obstacles to finally become one or is it too late for their second chance?
1.) Tell us a little about yourself.
Married for 14 years, mother to a teenager, reality TV junkie, HEA has to be included in all I do; read, watch, write.
2.) When did you start to write?
High school with creative writing and then journaling. I was a marketing representative for nine years so I got to write all kinds of gimmicks.
3.) What Genre’s do you write?
4.) Have you ever thought about writing in a different genre?
No… I would love to maybe venture to young adult, but my mouth is atrocious and I cannot write or speak without a few cuss words.
5.) Can you tell us a little about your new project?
I am working on an anthology releasing right after Christmas with 7 amazing authors and all proceeds will be donated. The anthology will feature all new work, 8 new novellas, no cliffhangers!

I am currently reading Scorned and the last read I finished was Locke by Harper Sloan
7.) Who are some of your favorite authors?
Stephie Walls- as well as a terrific friend, Nicholas Sparks, Harper Sloan, Jillian Dodd, SK Logsdon.
8.) Can you tell us about your newest book that you have release?
Pieces of Paisley- this book has been screaming at me! It has been my favorite, yet hardest to write. Not because of research, but the emotions. I would say it is about 60% truth or real life experiences and sometimes as we grow up we have those “what if” questions and I put my questions down to paper. It is my first stand-alone, although my series was different characters in each book.
Paisley and Jake have an epic love, but a real love. Problems, dishonesty, insecurities and a lot of growing up to do. You get to read about their struggles, situations and downfalls.
9.) Which of your books you written is your favorite? Favorite Character?
Pieces of Paisley is my favorite; but Brielle from Not Enough is my favorite character. That girl has some sass.
1.) Favorite Color: Blue
2.) Favorite Singer: Blake Shelton
3.) Favorite Season Spring
4.) Favorite Food: Steak
5.) Favorite Animal: Dog- chihuahua
