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
Overview

The small town of Coalmont, Tennessee is shattered when a car crash on graduation night leaves three of its teenagers dead and another three fighting for their lives. Four years later, the aftershocks still ripple through the town, and no one feels them more than Natasha Hawthorne, the young driver.

When someone targets the survivors of the horrific crash for murder, the obvious motive is revenge. But things aren’t always what they seem, and the notion of revenge served cold doesn’t ring true with Brady Simms, newly appointed police chief. To make things even more difficult, Brady ultimately finds himself standing squarely between the killer and his next victim, the woman who broke his heart four years ago.

As the killer escalates his attacks, Brady’s only hope of saving the intended victims is to get into the mind of a sociopath. When the relative of the first victim makes a startling revelation, Brady reopens the investigation and what he finds will change all of their lives forever.

"I absolutely loved Natasha and Brady. Natasha has lost herself since the horrible deaths of her friends. She is stubborn, passionate and strong-willed. She thinks Brady is sexy and too stubborn to listen to the truth of what happened years ago. But she loves him and is not willing to give up on him. Brady is sexy and charming. He is disgusted with himself for still having feelings for Natasha after the pain she caused him. Brady thinks Natasha is selfish, stubborn and he can not deny the love he still feels in his heart for her. The secondary characters in The Three Motives For Murder are fun, sexy and vibrant. I had to keep reading to see how they would play out in the story." ~ Billie Jo, Romance Junkies
