Overview

Now Why'd You Have To Go And Do A Thing Like That
Hollywood takes in Alabama, but not for long. One woman thought she wanted the glamorous life but what she got was a backstabbing best friend and her spot on prime-time television for the entire world to see. Back home, no one seemed to care that she had gone and screwed up her life, but there was one question on the tip of her own tongue that kept repeating itself. "Why'd you have to go and do a thing like that?" Not once did she see it coming, but when she went about making the same mistakes back home in Alabama, she knew she needed to get her wits about her. Only problem was, that the one man who mattered most, might have decided she was too much drama to handle. It wasn't her fault that she was born with a magical drama disaster wand or was it? Could she learn to be the woman she was raised to be and let the man of her dreams know how much she loves him back, or is it too late, and he decides that loving her hurts too much to be rejected again? Sometimes a southern man knows that if you love someone, she is worth it all in the end. Can this starlet claim Sweet Home Alabama once again?
Favorite quote that describes it all. "I was born with a tiara on my head and magical wand that created plumes of drama whenever I waved it."
Alabama chick goes LA chic, but not for long. Home is where the heart is and there ain't nothing sweeter than Sweet Home Alabama. Sometimes a girl has to fix her fancy before she can realize what is really important in life. If you were born down south, you would know that the hospitality runs a tight finish with southern cowboys knowing the right thing do.
If life were as easy as waving a magic wand, we would all live in fairyland. Instead, it's filled with hopes and dreams, triumphs and failures and a long dusty road home to where the heart is.

Meet the Author

CJ Hawk is a freelance writer based out of Denver Co. She loves to write about quirky characters and life experiences. Some of her books are written for the general audience, while others are too steamy and meant for mature audiences. Please visit her website for other available books at cjhawk.com

First three chapters of all my ebooks are available to read on my website - along with free stories.

Ah, if only life were like frosted cupcakes. Gooey sweet frosting with satisfying cake, bite after bite, day after day, maybe a center filled with creamy goodness. Life is meant to be magical or laughed at. Yes, life is a lesson, blah...blah... blah...but magical makes more mojo.
I am a stay at home mom of two boys - preteen and teen - ugh! During my time home, I’ve tried on and off to work a normal job but to no avail.
I put in my time in the corporate world before having kids and have really enjoyed being able to stay home and raise my boys. OK! Who am I kidding? If I had it to do all over again, I'd make awesome money, have me a nanny, a maid and bomb squad diffuser.
It kills me to admit this but with each book published there are several empty cupcake wrappers, achy fingers from hitting the delete button WAY.... too many times then going back to hit Control Z to undo every delete I just made. Yet, once a book has been published and the sales and positive - not negative - reviews come in, I feel a sense of satisfaction in my job. Writing has its ups and downs like a new relationship. The plot starts to build is equivalent to seeing a handsome man for the first time, and your heart starts pounding. The plot is laid out, and the characters are developing just like a new relationship with that handsome man. Then comes the editing and refining part which is equivalent to finding out he snores, farts way too much, and leaves the toilet seat up. Get my drift. In the end though, it's all worth it and nothing beats a rock-solid relationship that can handle the ups and downs nor does it beat the smile I leave on a reader's face or the feeling that they got a moment away from the everyday hectic life. And that, is why I do this.
