Meet the Author

I knew I wanted to be a writer the first time I read Pet Cemetery by Stephen King. There was something about that book…it was so terrifying, and so brilliant. I was in high school then, and couldn’t sleep in the same room with it. It showed me the power of the written word.

After writing short stories, and working on the yearbook throughout high school, I postponed my writing during college, and didn’t pick it up again, until I quit my secretarial job, to stay home with my children, three years ago. I live in a quiet little town in Tennessee, with my husband, Quinton, and our two children. Tracy City, is a place where everyone knows everyone else, and the response to the news of my sale has been great already. Most of them can’t believe their mild-mannered tax preparer writes about killers! Although I enjoy all genres, romantic suspense is what I love. There’s nothing better than a good, pulse-pounding story, that makes you a little afraid to turn out the lights…

About This Book

She fooled him once …

In Los Angeles an unexpected pregnancy sparks a daring plan of escape for a brutally battered wife. Jessica Ramsey fakes her death and flees to Tennessee to build a new life for herself and her unborn son.

But nobody fools Cole Ramsey twice …

Five years later, a chance encounter has destroyed Jessica’s carefully cultivated anonymity. She thought at first Cole had found her, but it was his twin, Alex, who unwittingly unmasked her charade. Now she must trust him to save her from Cole’s wrath. But the twins are bound by blood. Will it prove stronger than the fragile relationship building between Alex and Jessica? Or will a third time be a deadly charm?
