Title: Before I break (1.5)
Genre: Romance
Published: September 5, 2014
Pages: 82


Out of the past six years of my life, I only remember about half of it. After a dozen doctors and thousands in medical bills, I was diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder--one that causes me to lose track of time. Sometimes it’s hours, days or even weeks with no recollection of anything. The good thing is it's been almost two years since I had my last ‘black out’. It sounds much better than what the doctors refer to them as, 'episodes', like my life is a freakin' comedy.

During those two years of normal, I finally managed to get my Bachelor’s degree, a job I love, and I’ve just proposed to a woman who has been there for me through it all. For the first time in a long time everything is on track.

Until a strange woman shows up at my door—she says I'm her husband and I think she’s crazy. Until, I get a voice mail on my phone. It’s from a guy name Cal. The weird part is, it’s the same name the strange woman called me. What terrifies me, is this guy Cal…his voice sounds just like mine.

Lauren Brooks fell in love with Cal Scott at 21, married him at 22 and had her heart broken at 23 when he walked out of their marriage. At 25, though raising his daughter on her own, Lauren was finally moving on with her life. Until, she learned the reason for Cal's abandonment, the walls she’d carefully built around her collapsed..

The day she meets Chris, all those feelings she thought she had bottled up come spilling out. She can’t afford to give into her heart’s desire again. Love nearly broke her once, and her daughter doesn't need two broken parents.

Christopher Scott is in love, newly engaged to Jenna, who saw him through an illness he didn’t think he could survive. He’s finally settling into the life he’s always wanted, making plans he only dared to dream before now.

Until, a woman named Lauren arrives on his doorstep.

She’s intriguing, beautiful and, try as he might, he can’t stay away. The closer he gets to her, the more his rock-solid plans begin to crumble. All he knows is that Lauren is the missing piece to a puzzle he must solve. For him to put all the pieces in place, he’ll have to follow his heart, and that might cost him everything...

The conclusion to the If I Break Series.

Cal’s back and his arrival changes everything.

Lauren knew it was coming but what she didn’t think he’d bring with him was an ultimatum.

A choice.

One that Lauren feels trapped under. A choice she’s unsure will make a difference but could possibly change everything.

The ultimatum isn’t the only thing Cal’s got with him but answers. The ones Lauren so desperately craves. But the truth won’t only affect the lives of he and Lauren but everyone around them…and not everyone wants the truth to come out.

The good thing is Cal doesn’t give a F…

…There's two sides to every story. In this one there’s three.

About the Author

I'm obsessed with blowing kisses. I guess that makes me a romantic. I love books and cute boys and reading about cute boys in books.I'm infatuated with the glamour girls of the past: Audrey,Dorthy,Marilyn,Elizabeth.

I'm a self confessed girly girl,book nerd,food enthusiast, and comic book fan. Odd combination huh, you have no idea...


What inspired you to become an author? 
I’ve always loved to write since the fifth grade. They gave all the students a blank book and asked us to fill it up. Until then I had just been a reader, then I realized I could make my own stories.
I assume all authors also love to read, so what book inspired your love of reading? 
It’s really funny but I’ve been reading since my mom purchased the Disney’s book a week club way back when I was in preschool. I’ve been reading ever since.

How old were you when you wrote your first story? 
I think 11 or 12.

Who are some of your favorite authors now? 
Right now Colleen Hoover and Gillian Flynn. I’ll read their books no matter how much I have to do.

Are you a plotter or a pantser? 
A little bit of both. I try to let the story flow but I usually have an idea of how it will begin and end as well as main plot points I have to hit.

Are your characters based on people you know? 
Only one male character was based on someone who should remain nameless.

What are some of your writing rituals? 
I try to write when I feel inspired but when it becomes your job you have to get past that. I do notice I write best at night or early morning.

How do other books influence your writing? 
They inspire me. I’ve always been a reader, and sometimes I’ll read a book and it’ll push me to make my own writing better.

How do you get motivated to sit down and write with all the real world interruptions? 
I have a hard time doing that. I’m working on it now lol.

Which one of your books is your favorite? 
If I Break. 
It’d been with me for so long and my first one I ever finished. It’s like my first child. 

If you could have a writing retreat anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be and why? 
Somewhere in Colorado. Where it’s cold but cozy with little distractions.

If your main character were an alcoholic beverage, which beverage would they be and why?
Lauren would be a long Island Lemonade. Strong but sweet.

What’s the best way to hide a body? 
Drop it in the middle of an ocean lol.

Paperback or e-reader? This one is hard but I’d say e-reader.
Facebook or Twitter? Facebook
