Description

All It Takes is one night to change the rest of their lives.

Graduating Uni, traveling Europe and buying her own place – these are on Megan Green’s to-do list.

At just twenty-two, becoming a mother isn’t.

Fast cars, expensive clothes and bedding a different women every night – this is how Kian Murphy spends his time when not in the MMA ring. Pre-natal scans and birthing classes are not on his agenda.

After a chance meeting and passionate encounter, Megan finds herself pregnant with Kian’s child. But with a womanizing reputation, and a temper that often leads him into trouble, Kian is hardly boyfriend material, let alone father material.

Now Megan and Kian must work out if they have All It Takes to turn their one-night-stand into a relationship that will connect them for a life-time.

All It Takes is a dual-POV new-adult, contemporary-romance about responsibility, love and discovering who you are in life.

Peanut Blossom Cookie Recipe

Hey, everyone!

Today I will be sharing with you one of my absolutely favorite holiday cookies. I have to make these every year, usually more than once. They are “Peanut Blossoms,” but I’ve also heard them called “Peanut Butter Stars,” because there are some places where you can buy chocolate candies in the shape of stars. Alas, alack, I have never found these treasured chocolates, but Hershey’s Kisses work just as well.

Don't they look delicious? Let's get started!

Don’t they look delicious? Let’s get started!

You will need:

  • ½ Cup butter, softened
  • ½ Cup peanut butter
  • ½ Cup brown sugar
  • ½ Cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ Cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 bag of chocolate stars or Hershey’s kisses

Preheat the oven  350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cream together the butter and brown and white sugar. Add in the egg, vanilla, salt, and baking soda and mix well. Stir in the peanut butter, and then finally the flour.

Roll the dough into small balls, and then roll them in sugar. Place them on a cookie sheet and press your thumb  slightly into each ball to give it an indent. Put the dough into the oven for about six minutes (this will depend on how quickly your oven bakes things). Then place a chocolate kiss in the indentation of each cookie and bake for two minutes more. Adjust as necessary until golden brown.

Enjoy!

Update on A Midsummer Night’s Dudebro

Well, everyone, you know how I kept talking about “A Midsummer Night’s Dudebro” and how it was going to be a novella and out over the summer? As you can tell, it’s not out yet, and that’s because it morphed into a full-length novel! The antics of Kurt, Grizz, Patricia, and the rest of the gang could not be contained to a mere 30,000 words. The Dudebro series is no longer a “novella” series, but will have full length novels interspersed with shorts throughout. This is very exciting for me, as I love these characters and where their stories are going.

I decided to wait to release it until a warmer month so as to get people in the summer mood. It will be coming out in April 2017. I have another exciting announcement to make: “A Midsummer Night’s Duebro” and the rest of the “Dudebro” series are going to be released with Snowy Wings Publishing!  I am so excited to be working with them.

That’s all for now!

Cover Reveal for a Midsummer Night’s Dudebro

Hey, everyone! I can’t believe May is almost over! The month has really sped by for me, especially when it comes to writing. About a week into May my computer kept freezing and making weird noises (when I was in the middle of writing–the horror!) so I took it in, and the hard drive was broken! It was literally deteriorating (side note–less than two years old!) so the hard drive had to be replaced, and thus my computer was in the shop for an entire week. That really threw off my writing schedule (and I was a very bad girl with both of my instagram challenges–even though I had my phone, I was focusing on other things besides writing because I was having panic attacks that I would lose all of the things on my computer), so I haven’t reached my word count goal. But, on the positive side, I have been working on A Midsummer Night’s Dudebro, and to prepare for the summer release, I have the cover!

It is beautiful, I am so excited. I also like that the silhouettes look like the actors I’ve cast in my minds. I love it! What do you guys think?

Keep an eye out for A Midsummer Night’s Dudebro, heading your way this summer!

Summer Vibes

Hey, everybody! It’s pretty warm today here for April, so I’m channeling summer vibes and writing my newest novella in the Dudebro series, A Midsummer Night’s Dudebro. A large portion of this story will take place on the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk (“in the warm California sun!”)

This is so much fun for me; a lot of my happiest summer memories took place on the Boardwalk, and Patricia, Grizz, Kurt, and Ben are going to be having some antics here!

Keep an eye out for A Midsummer Night’s Dudebro, coming out this summer!

The Taming of the Dudebro and More!

Welcome to my new website! I’m so excited to announce that I’m publishing The Taming of the Dudebro as a novella today on Amazon!  I will post the links when it is ready for purchase. The cover I got for it is super cute, can’t wait for you all to see it.

I’ve been very busy working on several writing projects, including continuing The Taming of the Dudebro as a novella series! I’m participating in Camp NanoWriMo to try and pump some of my stories out. I hope you all will be seeing a lot of published works from me this year!

If you’re interested in learning more about The Taming of the Dudebro, check out the interview I had with the editor of Perchance to Dream, Lyssa Chiavari.

(Here’s the teaser picture Lyssa Chiavari made for it, which I absolutely am in love with. I want this car now.)

That’s all for now! I hope everyone is having a good day!
