Each of us have events in our lives that shape who we are. Love & tragedy, peace & chaos, faith & doubt — all are moments that write on the pages of our lives. My story is not much different from the next person’s and it is something I am willing the share.
Through fiction, I hope to peel back the mask of our lives and show readers what faith looks like in action, what romance is not, and bare the pieces of my heart on the pages of my books.
I hope you will join me on the journey.

Crushes are great for grapes, wine, and romance—not so great for hearts.
The Sweetheart Festival, an Elnora Island institution, has sparked more than a few romances over the years, but who would have thought it would light a fire in two hearts from two of the island’s oldest families. When Amara Martin and Dante Greco meet, sparks fly that may ignite more than romance.
Two wineries, old feuds, generations of traditions.
Seeing the attraction at Amara and Dante’s chance meeting, Beth Stevens and Scott Anderson join forces to do a little matchmaking, not realizing the pressure it would bring to both households and their own hearts. The new couple must decide if they will adhere to tradition or break free from expectations and choose love. Pressure on every side threatens a love that hasn’t yet had a chance to ripen—for both Amara and Dante as well as for Beth and Scott.
In this “forbidden love” novel, Heart Pressed continues the Elnora Island romances of the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.
I am a mom and reading is my escape. (Television is not entertaining or refreshing for me.) I love bragging about stories I have come across to my friends and that is why I started Back Porch Reads. Please head over there and check out some of the reviews.
There are some reviews that you will see this little image. This is because I work with CelebrateLit Publicity to bring you the latest reads in Christian and clean fiction. You will be able to read about the author, what inspired them and even enter in the giveaways. So, don’t be afraid to enter.
