Feel Button

I can’t see myself not writing romance…ever. I LOVE romance and I know that, with whatever story I create, there will be a hefty dose of romance involved. When the idea for Feel popped into my head, the first thing I felt was excitement. Then, fear quickly followed. I know that there is a considerable risk with crossing genres, but, the more Jensen and Saige pecked inside my mind, I knew I had to write their story.

Everything about Feel was new to me, not just the paranormal aspect. Feel is my fifth novel, but it’s definitely the book that has taught me the most…including learning a few surprises about myself. It’s no secret that I’m totally an emotional based person (just ask my husband), so stretching beyond my comfort zone certainly made me ‘feel’ a lot of emotions. Sorry…couldn’t resist the pun. The only two things that were familiar to me were, my knowing I would have to do extensive research and how I had no doubt that I would have Jensen and Saige share a powerful love. Other than that, as the saying goes, I was wading into uncharted territories – at least for me. Even the way I marketed Feel was different, and marketing is my nemesis; I totally suck at it.

With my prior novels, the female leads are considerably more innocent and refined than Saige, but, like Saige, they were strong, despite the heartaches they endured. Saige Colewood – she’s a smart-mouthed, quick tempered, emotional tsunami. I loved creating her character because of her contradictions. Being able to feel everyone’s emotions is hell, and Saige is damaged from the pain, but she’s still so strong. Jensen Rider was Saige’s hero, since the day he saved her on the playground when she was seven years old. He beat the hell out of anyone who hurt her…but then he sent her away. Writing their reunion had me in tears. I love a story about second chances, and this was my first experience writing about two characters, who never stopped loving each other, meet again and find a love that is even more powerful than what they shared before.

I hope you enjoy this short excerpt of Jensen and Saige’s story in Feel:

This isn’t just a story about the abilities I possess; it’s a story about something much stronger…the love of the man who possesses every part of me.


Saige’s hand rests on the knob. Her fingernails are a bright blue. The color of the sky. Another thing that hasn’t changed about Saige, it looks like she’s still painting her nails happy colors. From the day I met her, she’s plastered bright, cheerful colors on her fingers and toes, trying to give herself a piece of happiness to feel each day. Seeing the same color on her nails today as the sky we used to look up at together for hours as we lay in the grass, is both comforting and fucking heartbreaking. It’s been several seconds and her hand is still on the doorknob. I can see her shoulders rising and falling with her shallow breathing, probably wondering if she should let me inside.

“I’ll tell you anything you want to know,” I promise.

Wordlessly, she slips inside and leans against the door. Her hand still has a death grip on the doorknob and I grin when I see her wrist.

“You’re still wearing the bracelet I gave you,” I whisper, brushing my thumb across the worn leather.

Saige pulls her wrist away. “Don’t get all emotional. I just happen to like the bracelet,” she mumbles, her eyes not quite meeting mine.

The grin never leaves my lips, not buying that excuse. Maybe there is still some hope left.






The one whose emotions I can’t feel is the one who makes me feel the most.

I was a sensitive, at least that’s what I was told by the boy who saved me from the overwhelming emotions that consumed my soul, the boy who saved me from myself when my gift became stronger. Through the years, he was my redemption, my reason to take my next breath…then, he was gone.

Jensen always told me I was strong, but I didn’t believe him until I was forced to be strong on my own, and I kept breathing without him. I’ve taken 42 million breaths since the moment he sent me away. Now, four years later, he’s standing in front of me, and I can barely breathe.

This isn’t just a story about the abilities I possess; it’s a story about something much stronger…the love of the man who possesses every part of me.

Disclaimer – Feel is intended for readers 18+ due to strong language, mature scenes, and some violence.
