Little did she know the mysterious stranger is none other than CEO and millionaire Connor Black. After finding Ellery in his kitchen the next morning and assuming she broke his #1 rule about sleepovers, he becomes intrigued, not only by her stubbornness and defiance, but by her kindness.

Tell us a bit about yourself.
Writing has always been a passion of mine. I’ve dreamed of writing a novel since I was a child. I was one of those people who never believed I could do it, so I never pursued it. A few years ago when I was taking an English class, my professor pulled me aside one day and asked me if I ever considered writing a novel. I’ve had all these ideas running through my head for years and suddenly one day I sat at my laptop and started writing a book. Half way through it I stopped and started another book. I stopped that book half way through when the story of Forever Black came to my mind. Once I started writing Forever Black I couldn’t stop until it was finished. That’s how I knew Forever Black was the book I would publish.
When I’m not writing, I’m working full-time in a laboratory at a hospital, being a wife and a mother to 3 teenage girls.
