Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you get your ideas?

Honestly, I don't really know. Things just sort of...happen in my brain and then suddenly I'm daydreaming about a sexy cop or a sweet single dad or a kickass MMA fighter. Ideas can (and do!) come from everywhere. It could be a song, a movie, a book, a story in the news, an overheard conversation...seriously. I never know when something might spark an idea or inspiration, so I keep a file on my phone where I jot everything down.


Will there be additional Bodyguard books?

The best I can do right now is...maybe? I've had a lot of readers email me asking if Ian will be getting a book. Right now, there's nothing official planned, and the publisher of the Bodyguard series wasn't interested in publishing more books in that series. That being said, I'd love to write Ian's story, so I might look into other ways of publishing it in 2018, should my schedule allow. So stay tuned!


Why are only some books available in print?

It all depends on the publisher. Because I'm traditionally published, I don't have any say in if the books will be available in print or in audio, or just ebook. Obviously I'd love for every single book to be available in print and on bookstore shelves, but unfortunately it's beyond my control. Hopefully I'll have more stuff available in print in the future.


Are your books available in audio?

Most of them, yes! The three books in the Bodyguard series as well as the three books in the Blood and Glory series are available in audio. Hopefully more will be in the future!
