What people are saying . . .

"I've entered The Great Expectations contest twice. In 2013, I finaled in the Historical category with The Tin Man's Heart, and in 2014, I won the Single Title Contemporary category with Wild in Her Eyes and garnered an editor request! I went on to sell that manuscript in a 3-book deal to St. Martin's Press. It has been retitled HONEYSUCKLE SEASON and will be released March 2015, just one year after the results! 

I've entered many contests, and the NTRWA GE is my favorite. The first-round judges' feedback is excellent, the final judges are fabulous, and it is extremely organized. It seems like some finaling entries always receive requests. I can't recommend this contest highly enough!"

I was born and raised in a small town in Northwest Tennessee. Although, I loved English and reading in high school, I was convinced an English degree equated to starvation! So, I chose the next most logical major - Chemical Engineering- and worked in a hard hat and steel toed boots for several years. Now I live in South Carolina with my husband and two children. In between school and homework and soccer practices, I love to get lost in another world, whether its Regency England or small town Alabama.

Right now, I'm working on Book 2 of my Falcon Football series, tentatively titled Firefly Season. And, I'm expecting edits for Book 1, Honeysuckle Season, in September and edits for Book 1 of my Spies and Lovers historical series, An Indecent Invitation, in October. It's going to be a busy fall!

But, you'd better believe I'll be planted on the couch every Saturday watching my University of Tennessee Volunteers play football! Go VOLS!
