Thank you for taking a moment to stop and take a look at my debut novel, Beyond Eden—an erotic, Garden of Eden themed ménage romance. A rustically beautiful lake house is the setting for three lifelong friends to come together and recreate the original story of Eden in modern-day Tampa. Laced with symbolism, the magic of true love and a taste of the forbidden, Beyond Eden, is a dark, edgy, extremely passionate story.

I would have never guessed my first novel would be so daring and risqué, but after attending the RT convention in Orlando in 2009 I left inspired to chase my dreams and write from my soul rather than simply follow trend. It turned out to be very sage advice. I let the characters tell their tale and I’m proud of the story they allowed me to share with you.

The birth of Beyond Eden started with a simple idea—What if you wanted the devil to be the good guy? As a writer, temptation was a compelling topic to explore and something I couldn’t resist.

Despite the darker themes, Beyond Eden is, at its core, a very passionate love story. It’s unconventional, but no less potent because of it. Writing Danny, Paul and Eve’s journey was amazing. The characters had such strong voices and the writing process was extremely poignant for me. A lot of the feedback from readers has been that of very strong emotions while reading Beyond Eden—laughter, passion, and tears.

It’s not surprising considering that writing it was a rollercoaster of emotions that literally changed my entire life. There were times when I laughed out loud and times when I sobbed. As for the passion, I found out I was pregnant just as I finalized the first draft. All joking aside (and I’ve heard a lot) I cannot tell you what an unexpected miracle my new daughter is. At a time when I thought I’d never be able to have another baby, she came into the world just when my dream of finally being a published writer was realized. I actually got my acceptance email from Ellora’s Cave while sitting in the doctor’s office waiting to find out the day they would schedule my c-section. Needless to say, that was one of the most exciting moments of my life, finding out the exact day my daughter would be born (only a week later) and knowing this story that meant so much to me would be published so others could share the journey—it was amazing.

Now, a year later, with a new baby and the story I bled my soul into out in the world, it’s been an incredible ride. The feedback has been amazing, the support from my fellow writers, my publisher, my editor, my agent and now RT who offered the seed that originally inspired me has been overwhelmingly wonderful and I am so enjoying the journey!

Thank you again for letting me share my joy with you and for taking the time to read a bit about the novel that has and still is changing my life for the better!
