Breaking Promises (B-boy 1)
After a devastating accident, Aurora Crane's collegiate gymnastics career comes to an abrupt end… 

Fighting to piece her life back together, Aurora packs up and transfers to California State to start anew. When she arrives, her focus is on schoolwork and choosing a new career. But to her surprise, destiny has other plans… 

Sucked into the world of competitive breakdancing, Aurora comes toe-to-toe with the hottest B-Boy of them all… 

An arrogant hothead, Mitch Adachi—or B-Boy Kickwit as he is more commonly known—has life all figured out. He breakdances all day, practicing for upcoming competitions that are sure to challenge his skills—which means he has no time for distractions. 

When the new girl steps into the scene, he sees an opportunity he can’t pass up… 

Besides finding Aurora devastatingly attractive, he can’t help but notice her skills. He quickly develops high hopes for the ex-gymnast, seeing her as the perfect potential crewmember for the impending high stakes Battle of the Crews competition. All she needs is some fine-tuning. 

When the two commit to a business relationship, a different kind of passion kicks into high gear. There’s no denying they groove well together, but there’s a chance mixing high-stakes competition with a fierce romance might lead to… 

Breaking Promises. 

Breaking Hearts (B-boy 2)
Estelle Donovan knew college would force her out of her wallflower ways—but she never dreamed how far…

Known as shy and insecure, eighteen-year-old Estelle left for college with the hope it would bring an adventure of excitement and discovery, and give her plenty of room to spread her wings. But she couldn't have predicted how many changes she’d face—or that one of them would be named Jacob…

Jacob Silas—or B-Boy Spinja, as he’s called—isn’t just another college heartthrob…

After meeting Jacob, Estelle is determined to win his heart. When she stumbles into his world of breakdance, she falls in love with its culture, music, people, and most of all—the realm of competitive dance. For once in her life, the spotlight shines on her, forcing her out of her introvert ways.

But just like life, love is unpredictable…

When Estelle’s plan to win over Jacob backfires, even a new, exciting life can’t heal her broken heart. And as the years pass, Estelle lives with heartache of a once in a lifetime love slipping through her fingers.

Will they ever have a second chance at love? Or will Jacob continue with his dangerous trend of…

Breaking Hearts?

Breaking Free (B-boy 3)
A one-night stand that changes her life forever…

Mallory Carmichael is a pianist who just lost out on the biggest solo of her life. To ease the sting, she heads to the club, where she meets Asher Nolan—a sexy dancer with wicked confidence in his eyes. Mallory loses herself in a night of carefree passion. Little did she know that one hookup could turn her world upside down.

A man who knows what he wants, and how to get it…

Asher—or B-boy Hellhound as he is known in the breakdance scene—is a TV and movie star. He’s used to winning…until his breakdancing game spirals out of control.

After an uncharacteristic loss, Asher becomes convinced the mysterious girl from the club jinxed him. Wanting to reverse the hex, he searches for her online, and it’s not long before #Search4Mallory goes viral.

Mallory didn’t think she’d ever see Asher again, but when she discovers he’s searching for her, she agrees to meet…and quickly regrets it.

She soon discovers how crazy a man like Asher can make her…

Asher convinces Mallory to help him find a supernatural cure for the “hookup jinx.” Navigating the world of mysticism may be challenging, but it’s even harder for them to ignore their growing attraction.

Can Asher ignore the temptation to hook up with his ‘jinx’ once again?

Will Mallory find the right balance between her crazy rehearsal schedule and helping Asher?

One thing is for sure, the only way to get over this hex is by Breaking Free. 


Is There a Message in Your Novel That You Want Readers to Grasp?

I am a sucker for underdog stories, and each book in the series has an element of that theme. The main message I want my readers to grasp is – Never doubt yourself, because you will be surprised at just how much you can achieve. 

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

The most challenging thing I face is shutting up the critic living inside my brain. I’d never let anybody speak to me that way in real life, but yet here I am giving myself not-so-productive criticism—I am really hard on myself. 

How many books have you written and which is your favorite?

Counting the rewrite for my first novel, Green, I have written 18 books altogether—this does not include my 6 or so unfinished manuscripts :)
My favorite book has to be Palace Hills. It was the book that got me my first book deal and it is a tearjerker like no other!

If You had the chance to cast your main character from Hollywood today, who would you pick and why?

For Breaking Promises, I’d say B-boy Cloud (Daniel Campos) would make an awesome Mitch Adachi. You might remember him from Step Up 3.

When did you begin writing?

I began writing my first stories at age eight.

How long did it take to complete your first book?

It took me about 2 months of working non-stop to get the first draft and revisions complete.

Did you have an author who inspired you to become a writer?

This question is so hard! I’ll have to say every single author who I’ve read and/or met has inspired me in some way or another.  

What is your favorite part of the writing process?

I’d have to say first revisions. I love reading the story as a whole and knit picking everything I’d love to change.

Describe your latest book in 4 words.

Dancing in da house! (haha)

Can you share a little bit about your current work or what is in the future for your writing?

I am currently writing a YA novel from a male’s POV. It’s funny because my first book ever was YA, but after years of writing Contemporary Romance and New Adult, it’s a bit hard not to cuss or write such explicit love scenes anymore ;)
