GENRE: Paranormal Romance
When skeptic Marvin meets artistic Natalie in a coffee shop on a cold October morning, the two fall fast in love, but nothing is ever as easy as it feels.
Natalie believes that a divine something is guiding her life for her greater good, and it seems to be true. She lands her dream job and she and Marvin marry at a beachside castle. However, the ease and flow of their lives start to change. At the same time that Natalie becomes pregnant, Marvin experiences strange symptoms and visits his doctor.
When faced with a diagnosis that changes everything and odd dreams of the child that hasn’t yet been born, will Marvin let go of his skepticism or will he miss out on a lifetime with his loving family?
Marvin heads into his oversized master bath to start the shower. He is sensitive when it comes to nature, so he has a top of the line water purification system that allows him to use the ocean water in his home. It siphons water from the ocean, removes the salt and impurities, and leaves him with the smoothest, cleanest water in town. He is hopeful that the city will one day take advantage of such a resourceful product, but he isn’t surprised that they haven’t. The water is silky and hot as it rains down on his body. His showerhead is automated with voice command, so he can tell it if he wants jet stream, raindrops, massage or pulsating. Marvin’s home may be more modest than most in the area, but he never held back on the luxuries of things he liked. He turns the steam feature on as he shuts the water off and grabs his towel. He loves standing in the steam, with it smelling the way only steam in a clean shower can smell. He has always been very in touch with his senses and felt them all deeply: touch, taste, smell, hearing, vision, and the unspoken sixth sense. He is unconsciously aware of his intuition because his analytical mind has yet to bring it forth; however, it will happen when the timing is right. He steps out of his steamy fortress, his hair awry, and drapes his towel over the shower door. As he steps in front of the mirror, admiring his sculpted body, he wonders if Talie might be up, if she was even awake.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Currently, Vanilla. It switches with mood and cravings. And even before I’ve submitted these questions, it has changed to mint chocolate chip that I put a little Almond milk in and make it more like a little milkshake.
Which mythological creature are you most like?
First book you remember making an indelible impression on you.
“Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret?” I don’t remember how old I was when I read it, probably around 10 years old. I loved how it gave such fluidity, to talk to ‘your god’ wherever you were. It also touched on several adolescent issues of young women.
How do you develop your plot and characters?
I get an idea and I build my characters and plot from there. It’s a ‘now’ process for me, meaning I don’t usually plan ahead the ways it’s going to flow. Upon re-write things may change and be more fine-tuned.
Describe your writing space.
I feel it’s pretty ordinary. I write on my couch in my living room. I have a beautiful view of the intracoastal with a slight obstruction of 2 bikes on their trainers. I sometimes take my laptop with me and will write in various places, but the couch is where most of the magic happens! I suppose someday I’d like a writing room, but I don’t know. I like the freedom an open space gives without the feeling of ‘having’ to go to a different room to write.
