Rayna coverRayna – Book 1

Bedwarmers. It’s the name that Rayna chose to call the men that she shared her bed with when the need was too great. It was a safety measure. A person couldn’t get their heart shredded if they allowed no one near it. Rayna Norton’s sisters and mother were the only ones allowed in her heart. Life was great just the way it was. Her sisters seemed to feel differently.

Christopher Leigh is the perfect man to combat and disrupt Rayna’s way of thinking. He is a man with a creative mind and a determined heart. He sees Rayna at her sister’s restaurant and immediately knows that he needs to have this woman in his life. The artist that he is sees the beauty of the woman she is and the gift of the future they could have. He just has to convince the ever reluctant attorney that a life shared with him will be one worth her time.

Rayna’s issues run deeper than Chris and her sisters could ever perceive. Her chosen way of life has more to it than meets the eye. Will Chris be able to get Rayna to see that he is not like the men of her past? Will Rayna lose out on possibly the perfect man for her because of her own stubbornness? Or will her sisters intervene on her behalf, yet again?

The Norton Sisters is a series about six sisters that share the same last name, but are six entirely different women. The stories of the six almost 30 to in their thirties women will touch your heart and make you laugh out loud. The sisters by age ranking: Zoie, Wynter, Rayna, Nyema, Lynnia and Chyra are there for each other always. It follows the lives of six sisters running their own businesses, falling in love and dealing with the trials that come. They follow their own little “Norton Code”: “In the end, family means everything and your sisters hold you up. No matter what may come.”

James comes into her life like a wrecking ball. He has this insane attraction to Nyema that he is tired of fighting. Things are never simple though. How do you pursue a woman who is so closed off from emotion when you are practically drowning in loss yourself?
Will James be able to break through Nyema’s walls? Will they be each others saving grace? Can these two broken individuals come together and create something beautiful? Or will they let themselves drown in their individual sorrows and miss what could be the best thing in both their lives?

Dario Anderson has been the male in Lynnia’s world for as long as any of the members of the Norton family could remember. The ongoing relationship that they’ve had has been a platonic one even though every member of the family could clearly see what they have never said to one another.
When Dario appears to take an interest in someone that Lynnia feels is all wrong for him, mainly because she’s not her, their unspoken truest is called off. Lynnia comes out fighting, but fighting the wrong party. Will her no holds barred approach drive Dario into the arms of the woman she doesn’t want him with? Or will he easily see through her antics and they finally come together as they should have been all along?

#EllieKeys Advice to Dreamers – Author to Author/Dreamer

author advice

During the course of my 31 Days of Authors journey, I asked some of the authors to answer a bonus question. I found the responses to be enlightening and inspiring. I even provided a bit of my own. The responses could be applied to any individual that is aspiring to begin a new journey in their career or personal life. Here are the responses that I received, along with the question that I asked:  

What advice would you give an author questioning whether they should continue their writing journey?

My favorite quote is one from Audrey Hepburn: “Nothing’s impossible. The word itself says I’m Possible”

That pretty much sums it up. If you dream it, do it.  Seek out the help of fellow authors and above all….never say never.  I’m an optimist by heart, so I like to encourage people to chase those dreams.

                                                ~Jennifer Theriot

 Never let anyone tell you not to chase your dream. Learn as much as you can and put out the best book possible. There’s no magic trick to it. Just write, read, and keep on working.

                                                ~Chelle Bliss

I would say that everyone’s journey is different. I was writing stories for the joy of it before they sold. If I never sold another story I would still write because I create worlds I love to escape into. If you’re asking should you keep writing. . .then my answer is only if you feel driven to. If you’re asking if you should write as a career, I’d say—only if you can afford to.

                                                ~Ruth Cardello

I recently went through a stage where I was questioning whether I wanted to continue writing. Between soccer practice (two different teams), school (I’m a full time Psychology major), my domestic duties as a mother and wife, and my full time job, I didn’t have time. I had so much going on that I never stopped moving. This made me question my writing. At the time it was the expendable and non-reproductive aspect of my life. Sales were crap, I never had time to write, everything costs so much to produce the work. It was very overwhelming. I was ready to quit. And I know this is as cliché as it gets, but a few days after I decided I was done I had a dream. In my dream I was sitting next to Colleen Hoover and E.L. James. We were doing some sort of panel discussion and then I woke up. I decided if I was going to be one of the greats, I had to put out great work. Couldn’t do that while asleep, so I got up and got to it. Haven’t looked back. My advice is to pray on it and do what is best for you. You don’t have to publish to be a writer, and the biggest achievements started with nothing at all. Make your nothing into something that will impact the world.

                                                ~Tabetha Thompson

Write.  Just write.  Even if you don’t like what you’re writing, continue.  The story will evolve and you’ll make the not-so-good parts better when you edit.  It will all come together in the end.

                                                ~Jenna Galicki

F*** everyone else, write how you want to. Just like you love the type of story that you are writing, somewhere out there is a reader who is gonna love to read it. Giving up is not an option if the only thing you eat, sleep, and dream about is writing. One day the hard work, crying, and moments of doubt will pay off.

                                                ~Khai L. Bayne

There is no right or wrong answer to whether or not you should continue your journey.  Also, whatever choice you make can be changed.  I would say to ask yourself why you started writing, and then ask why you would quit.  The answers might give you insight to your true reasons.  Sometimes we begin to question because our creative well has run dry from overuse.  In those cases, a break to allow it to replenish is the answer.  This journey isn’t an easy one, but it should bring a measure of joy.  If it’s not, there’s probably a reason.  The amazing Jennifer Ashley told me once that if you’re not enjoying it, you’re writing the wrong thing.  She was 100% right.  Writing should be challenging, but it shouldn’t be torture.

                                                ~Erin Quinn

advice 1

If you set your mind to it, then do it. As with any dream, it is going to take hard work, diligence, a thick skin, and perseverance to make it happen. No matter what, DON’T GIVE UP! Know your field, which means do as much research as you possibly can. I ask questions of other authors. We tend to be rather helpful, at least the majority of us are.

                                                ~Ellie Keys


#EllieKeys 31 Days of Authors – Ireland Taylor

Author Profile Pic


Ireland Taylor is such an amazing woman. She is insanely talented and a great author friend. I haven’t contacted her often, but when I do ask her for swag, donations, or anything else, she is always willing to participate. The woman is a rock star and I adore her children’s books. They are beautiful.

EK – My message to all the authors: Thank you so very much for being willing to sign up to do this interview. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to get to know you, share your thoughts, and highlight your work.

EK:  What is your pen name?

    1. Is it different from the name on your birth certificate?
    2. How did you come up with your pen name?

Ireland Taylor:  1- Ireland Taylor

      1. Yes
      2. Ireland Taylor is my daughter’s first and middle name.

EK:  Does your work fit into one genre? If not, tell us about it. If so, do the same.

Ireland Taylor:  I write books for both children and teen/young adult.

EK:   What is the title of your most recent or upcoming release?

Ireland Taylor:  This spring I will be releasing, Oliver Wiggins and the Fleeing Skeleton Key. It’s the first book in my new teen/young adult fantasy adventure series, Skeleton Key Adventures.

EK:  What inspired this work?

Ireland Taylor:  Anyone that knows me, knows that ever since the first book, I’ve been a ginormous Harry Potter and of course, J.K. Rowling fan. I study her and her writing almost religiously. Because of this, I’ve dreamt of writing my own series that was just as adventurous, and something kids and adults alike would enjoy. Out of this, the Skeleton Key Adventures series was born.

EK:  What is your favorite thing about writing?

Ireland Taylor:  Without a doubt, my favorite thing about writing, is when I sit down in my office, start writing, and then everything around me fades away, and I emerge in the story as if I’m the “all seeing eye” from above, watching the story play out like a movie.

EK: Now for the fun stuff …

EK:  What is your favorite snack while taking a much needed author break?

Ireland Taylor:  I get weak in the knees for Swiss Debbie Cake Rolls. If I’m out of those, then my next “can’t live without” snack is Rold Gold Pretzel Sticks.

EK: What is one of the craziest things you’ve done in your life?

Ireland Taylor:  I’d have to say it was when we packed up our entire house in Florida, in a span of two weeks, then moved cross-country to Colorado. All while eight months pregnant with our son, Riley.

EK:  The house is on fire, what are you grabbing if your family is safe and sound?

Ireland Taylor:  Without a second thought…my coffeemaker! Oh, and my computer too. (<- this one made me smile.)

EK:  What is your “go to” movie, book, or show?

Ireland Taylor:  The Walking Dead. Luckily, I now have, Fear of the Walking Dead, to tide me over while the other is on hiatus.

EK: Who is one of your favorite authors? Why?

Ireland Taylor:  Without a doubt, it has to be J.K. Rowling. Her writing is amazing, but her life story is even more so. It is what inspires me to strive for greatness within my own life and writing.
