Mum is dead.
The father I never knew has claimed me, and I’ve been uprooted from my world and thrown into a life of privilege.
I’m not welcome here.
Two boys are leading the school to drive me out, and I’m being followed constantly by two more. Things are much darker here than I thought; Crescentwood is full of dangerous criminals and dirty politicians.
I’m a pawn in a game I don’t know how to play, but I’m stronger than they know.
Trust no one. Corruption rules this town.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I've been an avid reader of the dark romantic suspense books for a few years now and one night I was lying in bed, unable to sleep, and this semblence of an idea came to me that I just HAD to write down on paper. Over the next few months the idea grew and shaped itself into this book and now I'm so heavily invested in Crescentwood that I often forget reality is still going on around me
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I knew I wanted an independent kick ass heroine. I also knew I wanted her love interests to be broken and damaged. My image for all of them is that several parts make a whole. With regards to the individual characteristics of each person, I've slowly shaped them as I write the book and the characters have become more real. There haven't been any particular character types I've wanted, I've just written what I feel suits each individual.
The clock on the wall behind the bar tells me it’s 2 am as I run my cloth over the counter top one final time, before grabbing my bag and locking up behind me on my way out the door. I’m late leaving tonight, as most nights, because my boss knocked off early.
Thankfully the fresh air outside wakes me up a bit as I start the walk back home, pushing away the exhaustion that has been working its way through my body and making my eyelids gritty for the last few hours.
Knowing I have to be at work in the café in four hours for the breakfast rush isn’t helping with the tiredness, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do, to get by. It’s not like working two jobs while going to school full time is anything new to me; you just never seem to adjust to the chronic feeling of fatigue. It’s on days like this, when I’m beyond exhausted, that I feel closer to forty than seventeen, but I have to do whatever I can to help my mum out, to ensure we can pay rent and bills, and feed ourselves.
Our life is one of survival, of scraping by with the bare essentials and nothing more. Some days I struggle to remember what life is all about, why we keep trudging on, but then my mum has a good day where she smiles and laughs and makes everything feel right in the world. It’s on those days that I remember exactly why we get up each day and continue the fight to remain alive.
