I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, spending most of my time daydreaming or playing around in the mud. I grew out of the mud play, well, most of the time, a good soak in the mud is always fun. I still daydream often and sometimes my daydreams interrupt my daydreams. So I write to remember them. If I didn't write, I think my mind would explode from an overload of fantasy and weirdness. To the annoyance of my friends and family, my characters sometimes become a part of my world. During my childhood, I would frequently get in trouble in school for daydreaming. Eventually, my vivid imagination paid off and I had the privilege of writing and co-directing my sixth-grade class play--a dreadful disaster, though not from my writing, of course. I'm pretty sure it was the acting.I enjoy writing about characters living in small quaint towns and tend to lean toward the unusual and edgy.
"These books are wonderful. The trio starts with the harrowing tragic beginning to Beautifully Wounded with Jackson Beaumont. Then on to the exasperating clashes of Beautifully Used with Brodie Beaumont. And finally the lonliness and feelings of abandonment in Beautifully Undone with Asher Beaumont. All three books are, yes, I'm going there, beautifully written. The guys are so much fun to read. And the girls are... sorry. That would give spoilers. The situations are engrossing. I only put the books down long enough to feed the dogs. This set would make the ideal summer vacation read."- Ravenz Reviews
"This has got to come with a warning label. Caution may set your panties on fire and your heart thumping! I'm addicted to the Beaumont boys and this is my cure." Amazon Reviewer
This is the complete series of the Beaumont Brothers consisting of books 1-3.
Beautifully Wounded - Jackson and Lena's Story
Beautifully Used - Brodie and Gabrielle's Story
Beautifully Undone - Asher and Melody's Story
Beautifully Wounded, originally titled, The Fawn, was inspired by a long time day dream I'd had as a child and continued into young adult hood. I'd always had this fantasy of being saved by my prince. Jackson is that prince. The original name came about because of the fawn Jackson nurtured when he was a kid. But then, I thought people might think the book was about a cute little deer, so it became Beautifully Wounded, which worked out well for the next two books.
All three books can be read as stand-alones, but if you are going to read all three, and want to get to know each of the brothers individually, I'd suggest starting with Jackson and Lena in Beautifully Wounded.
All three of these stories deal with real life situations and social issues. I've tried my best to keep it as real as possible, of course, it is fiction, and I do like to have a happily ever after at the end of all my stories. Just a warning, the sex scenes get steamier with each book. Sorry, I just couldn't help it.
It takes a strong individual to bounce back from some of the horrors of real life, and I believe I've portrayed that in these stories. Never give up hope, because I truly believe you are what you make of yourself and we are all in control of our own situations. Be brave, be strong, and don't ever let someone tell you that you can't do something that you have a passion for.

On The Rocks
Love is best served on the rocks.
My roommates look really good naked. At least one of them does. I’m sure the other one does too, but I haven’t seen him without his pants on. Living with two guys wasn’t something I’d ever considered, but the opportunity fell in my lap, and I’d have been crazy to turn it down.
College went by in a great big blur leaving me with less of a direction than I had going in. Add in a family that wanted nothing to do with me, and my post-college plans were less than clear. What’s a girl to do when she has nowhere else to turn? She moves to the Outer Banks and learns to bartend. After all, it was my horrible bartending skills that led me to my roommate’s bed and into his heart.
