Cole Weston’s biggest holiday wish is about to come true. The deal of a lifetime is within reach–and once he closes the sale of one small town elementary school, he’ll have a nice fat bonus check to take with him when he finally moves up to the real estate big leagues in New York. He’s not about to let anyone stand in his way–especially not the feisty and all-kinds-of-adorable teacher who does everything she can to convince the school board not to sell. 
Francesca Bagnoli won’t let go of her beloved school without a fight. The historic building might not be in the best shape, but it’s the heart and soul of her town, and there’s no way she’ll let some greedy real estate mogul destroy it. Who cares that he’s the most attractive man she’s ever seen? She will not lose focus, and she most definitely will not fall prey to Cole’s charming softer side. 
In the countdown to Christmas, can Cole and Francesca put aside their differences and take a shot at the kind of love neither expected to find? Or is a holiday miracle just not in the cards for them this year?
The Nice List is a stand-alone, HEA/HFN Christmas Novella with just a touch of holiday spice!

To find the magic she needs to bring back her coven, Mercy and Dorian journey to a desolate island off the coast of Barbados and uncover long-hidden secrets from a native shaman tribe. But their presence is unwelcome, and Mercy finds herself harnessing the universal elements to save the lives of her beloved coven.
 
Meanwhile, Maurice continues plotting to destroy the supernatural world until every last human on earth bows to him. Knowing he can’t kill Mercy, he conjures up sick and twisted games he can play with her in order to crown himself the Master of Hell.
 
Where there is pain and destruction, a new power emerges, and Mercy must hold on to faith that good will triumph over evil because, if not, Hell will consume them all.

I grew up in southern California where I studied at The California Healing Arts College for massage therapy, then working as a Massage Practitioner for thirteen years. I now live in Colorado, where I worked in the real estate business for a time, before deciding to focus on family and writing.
 
I always loved writing, concentrating on poetry rather than prose when I was younger. That changed however, when I had a dream one night that inspired my debut novel, The Dark Awakening.
 
In my spare time, I enjoy a wide variety of hobbies, including reading, attending rock concerts, and exploring new vegan restaurants in Denver.
 
In the future, I hope to continue to write exciting novels that will captivate my readers and bring them into the worlds that I create using my imagination.
