*** UPDATE BY AUTHOR…I have some EXCITING news. I decided to write a new novel under the pen name, K.A. Hunter (will add links when they become available). I’m not hiding behind the name but this novel, and others that will follow, is more raw and definitely grittier than my Intertwined Hearts series. The first 4 chapters have been written into a short story that will appear in an anthology in February 2015 and I anticipate publishing the full novel around July 2015. Those that have read it confirm that it’s nothing like what I’ve written before and they were blown away. Can’t even tell you how happy that makes me 😀
