So a couple things. First I’m so excited that my book Taylor’s Legendary Heart is here! You can get it now. Link at the bottom. As it was so much fun to write.

It’s clean. My character Taylor is a fictional pianist in a country band and she’s totally based on Taylor Swift as she’s my go to female singer. And my male character, Eddie, is a British Pop Star with Red Hair. It’s absolutely fiction but I started playing with real life people’s images and the story just presented it self. And it was fun writing can’t talk about sex but it’s a romance. Skirting the subject is pretty easy. I went to Catholic school so avoiding the topic all together is all too familiar. Like I remember in the 5th grade my teacher pulled all the blinds and ensured the doors were locked and then he told us like it was a secret… Darwin’s theory of evolution. He thought we needed to know science based thinking. This is how intense my Catholic school upbringing was so yeah, no sex but sneaking the romance in… totally my cup of tea. So I hope you enjoy it.

When six musicians come together to form an all-girl country band, The Sweethearts of Country Music are born. But can they balance their musical worlds with their personal lives?

Taylor Jones has a gift. She’s never been a big talker, but once she started getting her emotions out on the keys of a piano, she found her peace. Between tough breakups and a move from NYC to Nashville, the piano has been the one constant in her life. And now it’s her ticket to success when she’s asked to join an all girl country band and their first album hits number one.

British pop star Eddie Williams has seven number one hits, three hit albums and one major regret. He never told Taylor he loved her. But every song, every melody has been about the piano player who got away. Now that her face seems to be everywhere he turns, he’s determined to rectify that mistake.

But with their booming careers working to drive them further apart than ever before, can Eddie break through Taylor’s country strong armor and get to the heart he’d lost out on all those years and records ago?

The Sweethearts of Country Music series includes six books by six different authors. Each novel features a member of the band as she struggles to balance music and love.

Second, every month I’m going to start talking about staying positive. It’s a struggle I think we all face daily. My parents sacrificed a lot to send me to fancy school. I remember not having heat one winter because it was too expensive and they chose my school bill. So growing up there was always pressure to be the best. But when I was an adult and free of that pressure and the ease of school because honestly school is about tests and being the best is getting good grades. There is structure there. It can be done, especially when my parents are checking the grades. But once school finished… I was lost in many ways in my 20s. I was anxious because I didn’t have that structure or need to perform anymore. I wasn’t married or with children and probably wouldn’t have been the same mom I am now as I wasn’t ready. I didn’t really know me. So learning to keep the thoughts in my head positive instead of soul crushing was a struggle. So I put together my top ten tips. Every month I’ll be on talking more about positivity because it’s a daily struggle, but to me it’s lifelong and important.
