Starting off as an editor the authors I worked with encouraged me to get my work out there. My first book was published in 2013.

Do it! It is very fulfilling to see your words in print. As I heard some advice once. Write, Publish, Repeat.
Excerpt from Mix’n Business With Pleasure:
Bevin Thomas is a Senior Vice President for a large media company she’s worked at since she was just an intern in college. Her boss and mentor has seen her through the ups and downs in her professional career as well as her personal relationships. He entrusts her with overseeing a rather large, new building project, including working with the construction company that will complete the building enhancements. Bevin prides herself in keeping her professional life separate from her personal life, due to a past heartbreak in the workplace. She insists on keeping things strictly business only on this new project. She did not expect a handsome, blue eyed devil to throw a wrench in those plans.
Jaxon Stewart loves to play, flirt and speak exactly what is on his mind. But, he also knows being professional is also key in keeping his business running. He can’t help himself, though. He simply must meet Ms. Bevin, by any means necessary, and let her know exactly what he thinks of her. She is stunning! When he’s asked to infiltrate the company Bevin works at to get information, to take over the company, he is conflicted because of his feelings for her. There also seems to be some other hurdles of past relationships and people lurking behind the scenes that are pulling some strings as well. Will Bevin and Jaxon be able to explore what can be between them and avoid the stumbling blocks in there way by Mix’n Business with Pleasure?
