Mary Smith, where do you want to travel?

I have traveled all over the world, but most of the time it's for business or it was because I was a kid and it was my parents' vacation and I had to tag along.
Now that I'm adult I want to go on my own!
Here are the FIVE places I want to go ...

1) Paris, France

Many of my friends and family have been and I'm dying to go and eat all the carbs!
2) Antartica

It's my dream to go there! I will make it someday! ... someday ...
3) Montana

Okay, I know this place isn't that far from me, but I've never been able to make it up there. It's stunningly beautiful and cold. Two of my favorite things!
4) Montreal

This is actually the place I want to retire too. I've wanted to go since I was a kid... but I'm hoping to make it this year!! *fingers crossed*
5) Alaska

Ah! Alaska! I've tried so many times to go there and every time I had, something happens

Behind the Scenes of Mary Smith

Every wonder what an author's life is really like? It's a hot mess. I'm sure many of you have seen the perfectly clean desk and spacious offices.

Let me tell you ... not all of us are that organized.
This is my true behind the scenes.
I'm currently working on six different books, two of which are being co-authored (those surprises will be announced later) therefore, my desk is a mess.

But, it's my mess!
First my desk ...

This is the main part of my desk ... are you can see ... it's a mess! haha!

This is the left side of my desk. As you can see my computer is always streaming Hulu or Netflix. I have to have some type of movie and/or show going as I write/blog/work. You can also see my journals. There are notes, ideas, and such for books to come and books I've already written.

This is the top (or hutch) of my desk. You don't want to open those doors. HAHA! Behind there are all my business contracts, receipts I need to get to my accountant (which I've…

Let me tell you a story...

If you step into the world of social media, there's always so much hate on there anymore. Hate against religious groups. Hate against the government. Hate against other bloggers. Hate against other authors. And it always makes me sad.
So here's a more uplifting story ... about me! I know it sounds conceded, but bear with me for just a moment.
I want to tell you a story about doing something good for someone else. See, I'm always that person in line at Starbucks who pays for the person behind me. I'm that person who carries change around to give to the homeless and such in the area. I'm that person.
Now, I'm not telling you this to boost my ego... Absolutely not!

I'm telling you this to pass it on and why I do it.
It was about two or so years ago and I was at my local Target. I remember it was the holiday season and you know how rough that time of year is.

I was in line and stressed to the max after fighting a crowd of people and been standing in line for way too …

A lot of you have come to this site because you've read my books and/or heard about me from another author.
For those of you that have read my books, here is my question:

A Player and a Tattoo Artist (NH Bear Book 8)

Alden Brockman is better known as the manwhore of the New Hampshire Bears. He’s the top player on and off the ice and never, ever had an issue getting a female into bed. A simple smirk, a wink, or a smooth phrase in his French-Canadian accent and they fall right into his arms. No matter what technique he used, no one ever told him no.

Until now…

Baylor Royer has worked hard to open her own tattoo shop and provide a good life for her ten-year-old son, Kace. Then after a one night stand with her client Alden Brockman her world changed. Now he wants to date her. But there’s one problem – Baylor knows it’s only because she told him no. She’s never had a steady man in her life because she doesn’t want Kace to get attached to a man who’s just going to leave at the blink of an eye. Plus, she’s even more scared she’ll fall in love with the wrong man. 

Could the biggest player actually fall for a single mom?

Are you ready for The Captain and the Broken Girl?

The Captain and the Broken Girl is here!
I know I have been hinting around about this book a lot lately, but it's finally here!
What do you want first? The cover? Or the blurb?
Let's do the blurb!
Hamilton Baer is not only hardworking and stubborn, but he’s also the captain of the New Hampshire Bears. However, he has a big problem. Hamilton broke the heart of the only girl he’s ever been in love with. After spending the entire off-season in misery, he now has a plan to win her back. Janan Long has had a hard life. Having had an abusive mother, she was forced to become overly protective of her family and most importantly her heart. When Janan found herself opening her heart to Hamilton Baer, he did the unthinkable and shredded it. Just as Janan was finding a way to move forward from the fears she’s been hiding, Hamilton comes calling again. Except this time, she won’t be so easy to win over. Will the Captain be able to piece her heart back together? Or will the broken pieces o…

Good Bye 2016! Hello 2017!

Oh 2016! Has it been as rough on you as it has me? At least the last several months seem to be. I'm just talking about the celebrities deaths either. My real life has been a roller coaster.

Let's recap my year of 2016 and give you a small preview of 2017.
Are you READY?

It began with my introduction to my new series: The New Hampshire Bears!
Book One: The Muse and the Fairy Tale had been my first solo book since Aug 2015. I had been writing with Lindsay Paige and been focused on other projects I hadn't published solo in a long time. It felt like it anyway.

FYI: This book is perma-free on all platforms! Grab it up!
The came book two: The Workaholic and the Realist in April.

Then came The Hero and the Fat Girl in June

Then The Arrangement in Sept

And lastly The Coach and the Secret in Nov

Remember all profits of Coach's book goes into a special account for the daughter of whom Coach's story is based off of. I want to take this time and thank you all for this book success. To d…
