Picking Up The Pace cover design by Valerie Hayken Who would have thought a rookie 25-year-old reporter would find a story worth dying for in quiet Fort Worth? Angie Mitchell certainly doesn't, and neither do her editors. But only weeks into her first big investigative piece, the death threats pour in, her car gets vandalized, and she begins to suspect that there's more to the story than a troublesome amount of homeless people showing up dead in the street. And as if dealing with her professional life isn't enough to keep her busy, she faces another struggle: how to deal with Lauren Lucelli, the beautiful, dark-haired stranger who waltzes into her life and flips it upside down.

Let It Shine
Click here to purchase this novel

Life can be impossibly beautiful, even in the roughest of times, when fear and emotional hurt threaten to drive everything else away. Most people shut down -- pray for a fast-forward to better times and let minutes run together until all that remains is a hazy blur. One of the toughest choices a woman can make is to stand strongly still and search for the beauty. It's scary. It hurts. Still, it can ultimately be fuller and richer in color. After losing her father and suffering a failed relationship, artist Jordan Coones makes that difficult choice -- decides to search with her heart and eyes until she can find the wonder and let it shine. Leslie Becker is at her side, struggling just the same to rediscover trust in love and life. Their blazing romance could rebuild them both or burn everything around them.
