Hi guys, here's an excerpt from my current novel Not yet titled
Fuck. Mac stopped dead at the top of the stairs. Well, he’d found Ricky Stevenson and the man held a hostage.
The young blonde teenager Stevenson used as a shield, held a fucking puppy between his knees. Ducking back around the corner, keeping out of sight, Mac thunked his head against the wall before shouting, “Stevenson, give it up! Drop your gun and let the kid go.” With his arms bent, gun angled upward, Mac waited, weighing his options.
“What do we have,” FBI agent Kane Quintana whispered, easing up beside him.
“One shooter, Stevenson with one hostage, a teenager and… a puppy,” Mac murmured.
“A puppy?” Kane blinked.
“Yup,” Mac nodded, his mind racing for the best possible outcome. Mac’s gut told him that the drug dealer wouldn’t hesitate to kill the kid if it would save his own ass, and Mac would bet the odds that Ricky Stevenson wasn’t going down without a fight.
“Give it up Stevenson, there’s no way out,” Mac shouted again.
Risking another quick glance, this time Mac was able to see the right side of the teenager’s swollen face and a trickle of blood seeping from the corner of his mouth. Soft golden brown eyes, surrounded by the thickest set of lashes, met his gaze and Mac tried to convey assurance. Fear filled the eyes staring back, the dark depths holding a resignation, as if he’d lived to long in this hell hole and had given up all hope.
Like hell, not on Mac’s watch.

Hello fellow bloggers, readers, and authors,

December is almost here and there's so much to do if you celebrate the holidays and even if you don't you'll be fighting that holiday traffic, if you drive and if you don't, you'll be battling the lines in the stores. My point is, this time of year affects us all, in some fashion or another. With all that said, I just want to say don't forget to stop and smell the roses. For me, that means enjoying some of my favorite authors! I have a passion for reading books filled with diverse stories about love.

If you haven't had the pleasure of reading diverse romance books before, I'd strongly suggest that you give it a try. Who knows, like me, you may never go back! lol

Here are some of the authors I currently read

Rhys Ford, Mary Calmes, Kindle Alexander, Riley Hart, A.E. Via, RJ Scott, Devon McCormack, A.M. Arthur, Lucy Lennox, Andrew Grey, Stephani Hecht, Cardeno C, Charlie Cochet, AJ Rose, Ella Frank, Silvia Violet, Davidson King, Aimee Nicole Walker, Tal Bauer, Amy Lane, Eli Easton, Adira August, Brooke Blaine, Sloane Kennedy, Poppy Dennison, Bailey Bradford, Piper Scott, Dan Skinner, Ann MacConnell Lister, Michele Notary, Nicholas Bella, and the list goes on and on...

*Update About my current novel"

Robert McKenzie (Mac) and Noah Bradford are going strong having reunited after six years and the sparks are flying as they dodge bullets, traitors, and their own stubborn selves to find love!

I'm currently over 70k words. I'll be looking for a trust worthy editor/beta reader soon, and if any of you know of one, please let me know. You can reach me at or on FB Reese Knightley Author.

Happy Holiday Peeps!

Wow, it's already November and I'm glad.
October was a rough month for some of us with tragedy and loss. While I remain deeply saddened, it has reminded me to follow my dreams. 

A new day is on the horizon, a beautiful reminder to live life to the fullest, and I plan to do exactly that. Friday, November 3rd, I'll be traveling by train to San Fransisco. I'm going to write during the trip and hopefully meet people. I love to people watch and observe crowds for potential characters. :)

For two glorious weeks I'll be staying in a penthouse apartment with the view of the Bay Bridge and writing on my current novel, Lost. 

Update about my current novel-
One of my main characters had a sudden personality shift in the middle of my book so I'm rewriting a few scenes to accommodate him. The nerve! lol

Anyway, if you are reading this, I wish you a great November.
