Her most recent accomplishment started in the summer of 2015, see previous page. Making her dad’s dream come true with publishing his works as well, as an emotional accomplishment. She is the 2016 local A.N.W.A. chapter (Snake River Writers) president, won NaNoWriMo and loves StoryMakers. Teya has been writing for as long as she can remember. At a young age she lived on a street she affectionately named Hill Street Blues, which helped her creative writing. Her Family moved to Menan where she continued her love of writing. Her father would always be and will continue to be her inspiration, even after his untimely death in 2006. She loves sitting in her soft chair next to the fireplace and watching out a big living room window. It gives her plenty of creative juice for stories. She met the love of her life in the loft of a barn. Yep, that set up some teasing from her father. They have been happily married since 2003. They have four children and all are loving and supportive of her writing. Her oldest daughter is following in her footsteps as a writer adding her own illustrations. She refuses to comment on the trolls in the closets and under the beds. She is active in her church, has compassion for others, and a love for all life brings.

glanced quickly left, then right, and stepped on the gas as he glanced at his
sister. Strangely, she began to glow brighter. A fleeting thought came to him
of why she might be illuminated. Emily started to turn her head right, and as
she turned everything slowed down. Silence fill the space, not even the radio
made a sound. He saw her eyes wide with fear and her mouth open as if in
screaming, but no words. He felt his eyebrows crease together a second before
he heard Emily scream, “Jer!” Then a deafening crunch, as he slammed against
his door, and as his head careened toward the window. Metal twisting metal, and
the shattering of glass could be heard. Just before his head smashed against
the window knocking him out.

I have been reading love stories for as long as I can
remember and when I ‘met’ the classic authors like Jane Austen, Elizabeth
Gaskell, Henry James, The Brontë sisters, etc. during my Honours studies, I was
hooked for life.
I married my college boyfriend and soul mate and

picturesque little seaside village of Betty's Bay, South Africa with the ocean

has not always been an easy ride, it has always been an exiting and interesting
I like the heroines in my stories to be beautiful,
feisty, independent and headstrong. And the heroes must be strong but
possess a generous amount of sensitivity. They are of course, also
gorgeous! My stories typically incorporate the family background of the
characters to better understand where they come from and who they are when we
meet them in the story.

I must preface this review by stating that I don’t enjoy contemporary Romance/ Drama. This book falls solidly in that genre. That being said I must admit that it was a well written book. The characters are developed and the plot line was plausible. There was also an element of suspense which I really enjoyed. The sex scenes were too hot for my tastes but not overly explicit. Even though this is part of a series it can be read as a stand alone. You meet the people in the previous series and discuss brief events from previous series. However it is just enough to peak your interest and not enough to be detrimental to the plot line. Overall if you like a hot romance with lots of drama and an element of suspense this is the perfect book for you!

Becky meets the boy of her dreams, too bad he keeps disappearing.
"It could not be worse for ninth grader Becky Michigan on her first day at a new school, sitting in beet juice and staining her white jeans in a classroom about to fill up with students. In the nick of time, a gorgeous blonde boy named Danny comes in and offers his over-sized baseball jersey so she can cover up, get to the office, and change. By the time she pulls the shirt over her head, however, he has mysteriously disappeared.
Becky scours the school in search of her dream-athlete and wonders why after contact with him she has magically gained the ability to throw a fastball ninety miles per hour! Instead of finding the answer, however, Becky's new skill pits her against the school bully and the entire varsity baseball team.
That night, after her exciting showdown in front of the entire school, Danny shows up at her bedroom window. If she will agree to meet him behind Rutledge High at midnight on the ball field at the edge of the woods, he promises to reveal a secret meant to alter the past and change her life forever."

This book was so well written that I felt like I was 14 again... not pleasant. But other then reminding me of unpleasant experiences, it was an enjoyable read. Another reviewer mentioned the characters falling in love too fast. It was quick but completely understandable for that age group. You fall in love so quickly at that age. It isn't always lasting but it only takes one or two experiences with a person before you are completely head over heels in love. You are so much more trusting with giving your heart to someone when you are young. Then we become old and cynical. The characters are well written and very believable. I liked the plot line and enjoyed the twists and reveals. This book is a great YA book for the younger set of readers almost middle grade. It is paranormal but not freaky paranormal. It is clean and a great book that I would recommend to anyone looking for a quick and sweet read.

the trash cans next to the concrete support beam that had a poster of Frederick

base. The wobble-table. For losers.

I don’t like bullies,” he said. “This place is full of them.”

wobbled across the table, settling at the far edge. It was a grape. A purple
one struck her right on the end of the nose, leaving a hint of moisture, making
her blink stupidly, and yet another plinked off her forehead. So immature!
Bullies, oh yes, Joey had a point now didn’t he? She pushed back her chair and
looked over in the general direction of the assault. There, across the aisle
and about eighteen rows down, was Cody Hatcher, the big kid who had been
teasing her in English class, sitting at the edge of the table with what seemed
to be four of his idiot friends, all of them laughing like hyenas, one stamping
his foot he was so overcome with the hilarity of it all. Hatcher stopped and
looked right at Becky. He reached in front of him and took a purple grape off
the stem. He put it in his mouth and chewed real slow. Swallowed. Licked his

her arm, snapped her hips, and fired.
