Late last night, when I left my previous message, logged off and threw aside my laptop in a huff, I never expected so many of you to respond. I have been very overwhelmed lately with real life and that horrific comment caught me at the worst time possible. I reacted far more strongly than I would have ordinarily because of it. All I can say is, hug your loved ones close and make the most of every moment together. It's priceless. Now, coming to SP, I spent the day thinking about it, whether I should take it down and just be done with it, or finish what I started. Which is what my goal has always been. I may take a long time getting to that finish line but I'm going to get there with each of my stories--fanfics as well as originals. The outpouring of support I received means so much to me (I've replied to each of you btw). I know Secret Passion has the most readers--the stats prove it--and it's my longest-running fic. I mean, with this finale episode, it will cross 1000…

Important Note

Note (especially for Secret Passion Readers):

For a very personal reason, I have not been able to update in quite a while... I wish it was a nice, happy reason that keeps me away, but it's something quite devastating and deeply personal. I wish I could say more... but suffice to say, for a girl who likes to write only happily-ever-afters, dealing with real-life tragedy is never easy.
Writing has always been my escape and that somehow, what I've written has struck a chord with so many of you means a great deal. Thank you for that. Thank you to all those who took a chance not only on my fanfics, but Heartless, Bow-tied, Leather-strapped etc. as well.
I logged back in here after a really long time hoping reading some comments would lift my mood up as it usually does and partly, that worked. I haven't gotten through them all but a couple made an impression. First, shout out to Judy for your comments on Baby, Hold On. It's always nice to read such positivity and feedback--e…

HHe was my biggest teenage crush and my adult life’s greatest weakness.
Grant Alexander was everything I was not: rich, successful, sophisticated. Totally out of my league.
Over the years, I watched from my bedroom window as he arrived on a beat-up motorcycle with a loud, unpredictable engine then a nice, compact car to now this, a top-end, luxury SUV which probably cost more than my life savings times a couple hundred.
It was me who hadn’t changed, still living in that same old shabby apartment, watching him from behind the dirt-stained glass, knowing how far out of my reach he remained.
But in this moment, he didn’t feel far at all. I turned my brain off and gave into the rough demands of his mouth. He was hands-down the best thing I’d ever tasted.

Leather-Strapped is book 2 of the Longwoods series. It can be read as a standalone, although reading Bow-Tied #1 is recom…
