When Destiny Strikes | Review | Goodreads | Amazon |

Howdy Shane you're looking mighty fine today! stares at the swoony beauty I can see why Karlie couldn't stop staring at you when she first laid eyes on you!

Can you tell me what it was like for you when you first laid eyes on her? What was going through your head?  When did you know you weren't going to be killing her? 
When I first saw Karlie, I had a lot of emotions run through me. First of all, you must know - I thought Karlie was going to be some "monster". I was shocked that she looked like an average 16 year old girl! Well, not "average"... She was the most beautiful girl I've ever seen. When her blue eyes met mine, I knew at that moment I couldn't kill her.
What was it like growing up with Paymon as your dad?  What was it like knowing you were destined to kill someone?
I never wanted to kill anybody, and just the thought of it used to keep me up every night. I tried to talk myself into it though. I would tell myself "it's a good thing. You kill this one person, and you will be free from Paymon forever".
Do you have any childhood memories that particularly stand out to you?
The first memory I have of my dad was when I was 4. My mom had just recently left, so it was just him, Leah and I. Leah was teaching me how to ride a bike for the first time, and I ended up falling. I cried because I scraped my hands and knees. I remember he slapped me across the face and told me to shut up. Crying, to him, was a sign of weakness.

Now back to you and Karlie…

What is your favorite thing about her?
Everything about Karlie is my favorite. Her caramel colored hair, her sky blue eyes, her smile, her laugh, the way she bites her lip when she's nervous... *sighs dreamly* ... I guess if I HAD to pick one thing, it would be her optimistic attitide. She's always so bright and cheerful. She always brings sunshine to my dark world.
What was it like for you when you first touched/held her hand?
It felt light a bolt of lightening was going through me, but in a good way! 
It seems like before Karlie’s 17th birthday you are having to protect her quite a lot… how was that for you? Did you ever think you would fail?
Yes. Karlie is a magnent for trouble... I was worried constantly that I wouldn't be able to protect her. Even with the help of Savannah, Jessica, Jerrod, Mark and Alex, it didn't seem like enough protection.

I think that’s all the questions I got for you today, but fill free to stay so I can stare at you! 
           *flexes muscles* You can feel if you want...

About the Author: | Blog | Twitter | Facebook |

 I am a returning resident to Arkansas. I just migrated south from Saint Louis, MO with my husband. We have been married a year. :)

I love to write. I have been writing since I was a kid - literally. I decided in the 2nd grade I would write a book. I wrote lots of short stories and poems... And did I mention I wrote over 200 songs? (Yeah, I'm a musician too - guitar, bass, drums and vocals). So I wrote my very first novel at the ripe age of 14... My Mom still has it :-/. OK, so maybe it wasn't my best work, but I had a LOT of fun writing it!

 When I'm not writing, I am normally reading. I am also a caffeine addict... Dr. Pepper and NOS (the energy drink) are my drugs of choice :)

My best friend is Tess Watson, and she is AWESOME! 


  1. That is an ugly picture, and I will get you back. Muahahahaha.

    Oh, and Karlie is mad at Shane. She think he flirted with you. *rolls eyes* girls ;)

    1. Oh like you haven't posted worse on twitter... I can't wait to see what kind of blackmail you have on me because I'm sure I can find worse ;)

      Oh we were definitely doing some heavy flirting! didn't you hear? Shane and Tess are getting together in book 4!

    2. If Shane and Tess get together, I guess Alex and Karlie will hook up. I know how much you'd LOVE that.

      Or maybe... I'll just write Tess with ALEX! Muahahahahahahaha

    3. We all know that wouldn't be a good idea...
