I hope you've reached the right place, and I hope that you're over eighteen. This website is for adults only. No, I don't sell adult toys or videos or anything like that, this isn't a porn site. But it is the site of an erotic romance writer.


If you're looking for a steamy read, long, short or in between, where the characters are all over each other, get down and dirty, than I can guarantee that you will find something here. I'm going to level with you, my erotic romances are explicit and graphic in nature, but they all have happily forever or happily for now endings.


Enter at your own risk!

I don't know why it continues to amaze me that when we loose a family member or friend that the world goes on. Because it seems to stop for me. I get stuck in the moment the news is given to me, and then I go backwards. The memories I shared with that person flood my mind and hold me prisoner from temporarily moving on. I can't explain it any better than that. Some of you will probably understand what I mean.

We lost another family member today. Just before 7:00 this morning he was hit and killed by a semi. It was all over the news, but the first time I heard it meant nothing to me because it didn't affect me. Now every time I see it on the news, see the yellow tarp covering his body, it does affect me. It affects my daughter because he was her uncle. 

I hope they catch the driver of that semi, because the bastard kept going and just left his victim in the middle of the road. Thank God there were witnesses. It was said the semi driver was making a turn and aimed right for the pedestrian. I don't want to believe he killed him on purpose, but he did kill him. How do you not know you've run over someone?

Now, as the family pulls together and grieves in their own ways, I sit in my woman cave and look around me with a heavy weight on my chest. Everything, from the ceiling, to the ceiling fans, walls, windows, doors, closets, and electrical work this man did for me when I first moved in with my daughter. He made my woman cave.

We grew up together. I married his older brother. We weren't close, but we were still family. And it still hurts. Now I need to go out there and console my daughter, who in turn is trying to console her dad.

Debbie...How sad. You know you're in my heart over the death of your BIL especially since it was so sudden and tragic.

Death almost never makes any sense. I just have to say to myself that for whatever reason, we all have our time. I'm glad that you have recent fond memories of him...they will help later on. {{Hugs}} ~Nancy

Thank you everyone. The family is in shock but most of us are as okay as we can be. I've been divorced from Paul's brother, my daughter's dad, for many years. But have remained close to some of the siblings. It's complicated:)

Paul was the 3rd oldest of 10 siblings. We have quite a large family. He was only 53 and leaves behind two adult children.

Because there were so many witnesses, they were able to give the police the name on the side of the truck. They tracked down the driver, who actually owns the company. Charges are pending.
