It’s a fact Josie knows too well, right next to wanting what you can’t have. And even though Jon is her friend and colleague, he pushes those boundaries on the regular. There are times when she feels like she can’t escape him, and others where she doesn’t want to.

in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing
and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom; she

whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k. From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in
Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in
between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still
magical. When she’s not writing, she’s sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
