About the Author

I've always loved the written word. I enjoy writing almost as much as reading. My tastes run from science fiction and fantasy, steampunk and westerns, to historical and romance. The only genres I don't read, ever, is horror, (Life is scary enough, why add to that?) And Erotica. My all time favorite stories are fairy tales! Especially ones that have been re-written for adults. Now that my children are now grown, I have started to write again. The ideas are coming faster than my fingers and brain can keep up with. I live in Wisconsin with my husband of thirty three years. We have raised three children of our own and had others in our home off and on over the years, through fostering and just helping those that we 'adopted'. I have nine grandchildren and am blessed to have two with me on a daily basis. Though I plan on writing some Christian fiction, I am first of all a Christian, I do plan on writing some that are purely for entertainment without any kind of "Christian message". My goal is to make some characters come alive and to provide a small place of escape for my readers.

3.5 stars. I was thoroughly intrigued with the plot of this story. It was different from anything I've ever read. Very original! My concerns were with the editing. It could use a serious once-over. There were so many errors that it broke into my involvement in the story line. However, the editing problems didn't keep me from enjoying this novel. And, most of all, I was thrilled that this author chose to build the story around spiritual issues that can only be resolved in Christ. Super! Excellent! Yay! I do believe this story would be most appropriate for readers above the age of eighteen. There is nothing risque, but it does deal with issues that youngsters needn't be reading. Again, super read!

This book has many typos especially in punctuation. The author needs to take some writing classes on plot development, how to eliminate unnecessary details, and how to build suspense.

Daffyd was an extremely popular rock star when his world started to fall apart. At first it was his fear of people and crowds that kept him off the stage and away from crowds, then it was a cancer diagnosis that had him completely retreat from the spotlight and live a reclusive lifestyle. One day on the way home from a day of chemo he spotted a car off to the side of the deserted road and up ahead were two women walking. Knowing the next town was about 50 miles away he had his limo driver stop and give them a ride to his house. Samantha and her daughter were taking a few weeks of vacation to drive through the American Northwest. They had been to a funeral in Washington state and were driving through the area on their way home. Unfortunately their car broke down and they found themselves stranded on a lonely stretch of road. A limo pulled along side of them and offered them help. I found this to be an amazing story. The characters are likable and the plot has lots of twists and turns keeping this reader turning the pages long past bedtime! However, there are very heavy religious threads throughout the story which sometimes are a bit to strong and somewhat judgemental. Those areas had a tendency to pull me away from the story and compare those areas to my own Christian beliefs. There are also a lot of errors and typos! The need for better editing, or proofreading really distracts from the reading and enjoyment. However, I did enjoy the book and would recommend it.

Savage Love, the story of an ailing rock star and a recently widowed woman, pulled me in right from the start. Samantha is reeling from recent discoveries about her deceased husband and is trying to reconcile her feelings about her previous marriage with the new information she has received. Daffyd is very angry with how certain events have turned out in his life and is antagonistic about any discussions regarding God or faith. I enjoyed watching Samantha and Daffyd's relationship develop as Samantha worked to be a friend to Daffyd and lead him to the Lord. I also enjoyed the side characters in this story. Leal and Trisha, Daffyd's employees, added a great family atmosphere. Samantha's daughter, Seanna, and Daffyd's nephew, Bryce, are featured in the author's next book, Unplanned Love, and I look forward to reading more about them. I noticed a few inconsistencies in the facts in the book, such as Samantha's age changing back and forth a few times. I also noticed some grammatical errors, such as missing commas. However, this was an enjoyable story and the author made me care for the characters. I was provided with a free copy of Savage Love from the author in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.

Savage Love was such a wonderful book. I found that once I began reading it, I did not want to stop. I had to know what would happen. I fell in love with the characters and even found myself crying for the each of them at one point or another. The struggles, doubts, emotions and spiritual challenges that the characters all faced in their individual faith walks were easy to relate to and caused me to deeply reflect on my life. I loved how Scripture was weaved into the story and how wisdom was sprinkled throughout the pages of this book. This sweet romance will surely touch your heart and influence the way you look at your faith.

While Samantha and her teenage daughter were heading back home to Wisconsin from a funeral in Washington their car stops when going through Montana so they pull over and start walking.  A limo stops and offers them overnight accommodation so they can get a tow truck in the morning.  They can't see who is in the back of the limo but they later find out it is a very wealthy man returning from a cancer treatment.  They end up staying at the man's mansion for quite some time and learn that the owner, Daffyd, is a former famous rock star who has tried to hide from the public and media. It was an interesting story but I found it hard to accept that everyone in the entire book was a christian to such an extent that none of them did anything without asking God first. There was so much about what God thought that it got to be unbelievable.  It was a bit of a stretch that two women would get into a stranger's car and agree to go home with them. I was surprised that Daffyd and Samantha became quite fond of each other since he had stage 4 cancer. The characters were likable especially Samantha's daughter, Seanna and Daffyd's nephew, Bryce. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
