What if you wake up hung-over the following morning, not dead, but realizing that you had killed somebody? Even worse, what if you wake up in the morning realizing you destroyed the things you loved most in your life? When she regained consciousness in the hospital scared and alone, Kate realized the nightmare was a reality—her parents were dead—her soul-mate was in prison—her life would never be the same.
Through the eyes of many, Troy Trindle had it all—he was good-looking, popular, captain of the football team and dating the head cheerleader. What he lacked were the basic necessities; food, shelter and a family.
Kate and Troy’s worlds collide when she moves to Alabama to resume training for a spot on the Olympic Gymnastics Team.

My style of writing is passionate. I want my readers to fall in love with the characters, root for budding romances and thoroughly enjoy the plot. My goal is to write a story so entertaining the reader won’t want to put the book down.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
I recommend you work with two editors, one who specializes in content and one whose expertise is grammar. I have done this on my second novel, A Leap of Fate, and feel much more comfortable heading into the publishing process. My content editor is just brilliant. She had fantastic ideas and was so passionate about my story. She continued to motivate me throughout the editing and publishing journey.

I had the honor and privilege to grow up across the street from a very talented and inspirational woman, Helen Swank. When I retired from gymnastics Helen encouraged me to try something new every year until I found a new hobby that might be equally as fulfilling. I have since dabbled in wake boarding, snow boarding, playing the guitar and writing. The challenge and creativity involved with developing characters, fun romances and intriguing plots has captured my heart.
Growing up I read everything gymnastics related that I could find. Prior to the internet, my choices were limited! Most books about gymnasts were either short biographies or tragic stories of unfortunate events. I wanted to write an entertaining fictional story about a gymnast. One Fateful Night is a truly fun read.
