I am a wife and a mother of three.




He wanted a baby. I needed a man.

The first time I saw Jackson, I hated his guts.
 He was everything I could never have. Pure, panty-wetting,
 manhood. And I was trapped in a loveless relationship with his
worst enemy. I never would have dreamed he craved my womb
so badly he was willing to do anything for it.

My father's death taught me a lot of things. Most importantly,
I needed a child. I had to have a son before my enemies caught up
with me. So when Faith came begging for protection, I knew exactly what I wanted. I yearned for her body. Lust raged through me like wildfire. I longed to make her pregnant with my child. 
I gave her an offer she couldn't refuse. A life for a life .
My protection, in exchange for everything she had to offer.
I'd die for her, but she would give me a son.

I took her womb. I never suspected she'd take my heart. 

My Thoughts

This was a brilliant debut book by Chance Carter.
I have never come across a book like this, most books have been told to many times but they all end the same. This book was nothing i have ever read totally brand new in the indie world, the bad boy Jackson wants a son and in walks this girl Faith who needs protection from her Ex.
He is a man who knows what he wants and goes for it, but when he finally gets what he wanted. He leaves like a man possessed, to finish what he promised. Even if it means leaving the girl who has captured his heart. 
Faith is a girl who is broken after her relationship with her Ex, she is looking for a way to get away from him for good. On that one night she meets Jackson and her prayers are answered, but for his protection he wants the one thing she never expected. A son.
This book hooked me from the start, Jackson is the lovable bad boy who every girl wants. And Faith is the girl that needs a man to protect. 

The only thing I would of Liked to of read would of been when he went off on his mission with one thing on his mind - To kill...

I am really looking forward to seeing whats next in this series and If we get to see more from Jackson and Faith. 
Chance is the author to keep your eyes out for, 
with more stories like this he will have a huge following.
Congratulations Chance.

Hello Michelle, how are you today? 

M: I’m fantastic. Thanks for asking.
Can you tell us a little about yourself ?
M: Well, let’s see…I was born and raised in Ohio (USA) and always thought it was the worst place in the world to live until I started traveling quite a bit and discovered that it’s not so bad here. Lol I’ve been married for fourteen years, have one son who is in elementary school, and two dogs. I never really knew what I wanted to be when I grew up, mainly because I changed my answer every time I was ever asked this question. I went to college initially for drafting and design because I love creating things, but the moment I realized there was no real art involved when they made me draw a wrench to scale I was over it. Not that the field that I switched was any more creative. When I went into nursing, I was fascinated with helping people. I like being nice to people, and taking care of them, so it was a good fit. I did that for a long time, and ended up being one of the youngest supervisors in the hospital. But even with all that, I still liked creating things, which lead me eventually to writing, and here we are. ☺ 

What is your favourite movie? 

M: Oh, God. That’s a tough one, because there are so many. I love dark and creepy films. Like I’m obsessed with Tim Burton’s work, but I also enjoy romantic comedies. I’m sort of all over the place. If it’s got a captivating plot, I’m hooked, no matter the genre.
What is your favourite colour? 

M: Black or Blue 

What star sign are you? 

M: Libra 

What do your family  think about you writing and have they read any of your work? 

M: Most of my family is supportive, but only a few have read my work. 

What is your favourite food? 

M: This is also a tough one…Let me think…Mmmm…I think I’m going to go with Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms. 

What is the most  romantic thing  a man has done for you? 

M: I’m gonna go with the times my husband would sneak his way into one of the offices when he was stationed in Kuwait with the Army and call me all the time. This was before Skype was a thing and people were still just learning the internet. lol

Are the stories old ones you have saved on your laptop or new?
M: I have ten unpublished books on my computer currently that I wrote before I published my first novel and there’s a couple more that are just waiting to be published. 

When and why did you begin writing?
M: I started writing after my niece who was fourteen at the time got me hooked on YA books. That’s been a while ago considering my niece is now grownup, married with a baby of her own. lol

When did you first consider yourself a writer?
M: After I received the very first check that actual paid me for writing stories. 

What inspired you to write your first book? 

M: When I ran out of YA books to read at my library (this was before ereaders) and I wanted a very specific story to read but couldn’t find it anywhere. It was then I decided to write it down. I wrote that entire novel by hand in a notebook, on my lunch breaks while I worked as a nurse. 

Do you have a specific writing style? 

M: Fast paced with minimal fluff. 

Who was the easiest character to write for and why and  hardest and why?
M: Phenomenal X was the easiest. I wasn’t planning to write that book, and had absolutely zero room for it in my writing schedule, but I knew I had to get this man’s story down or I couldn’t focus on anything else. 

What was your favorite book as a child?
M: Cowboys Don’t Cry.
How did you come up with the title? 

M: Titles just come to me most of the time. I have no clue where in the hell I pull them from.
How much of the book is realistic? 

M: There’s a little piece of me in each book, and I think most of the things I write about in romance novels could actually happen given the right circumstance. 

How did you  come up with the idea for the black falcon series and is there any particular actors you can picture for the lead roles? 

M: The Black Falcon series was so easy for me to develop. I’m obsessed with rock bands and the whole rock star culture. My family is musical, so I used a lot of the things I saw growing up and put that in the books. 

You are a massive  fan of WWE Roman Regins, So much so that he was the inspiration behind your
 phenomenal x series. What is it about him that inspired you to write a character and have you ever met or seen him in person?
M: Roman actually knows about the book. He knows he is the basis of the character. I have pictures with wrestlers posing with the book, but I don’t post them because I’m not sure how WWE would feel about that and I don’t want to cause any problems for anyone. I just think Roman has that perfect look and attitude about him to be a book boyfriend. The funny thing is, he actually didn’t inspire the story. I had a quarter of it written when I started sharing teasers, and one reader commented that he sounded like Roman Reigns, and I googled him because at that time I didn’t know the guy. From then on, he did inspire the story for sure. 

(No copyright is intended, please contact me if you have any problems and I will remove the photo)

Do you have any other WWE wrestler favourites?

M: TONS! I have been watching it on and off since I was a little kid and Hulk Hogan body slammed Andre the Giant. 

Can readers look forward to a follow  up to DEMON AT MY DOOR?
M: Yes. I have half of it completed actually, but paranormal stories take a lot of time to write because there’s so much world building. But, I promise, at some point, it will be published.

Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?

M: A lot of things are based on things that have happened to me or people I know, yes. 

What books have most influenced your life most? 

M: The Black Falcon Series for sure. It sold phenomenally, and it changed my life. It gave me the opportunity to make writing my full time career. 

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor? 

M: Oh, that’s tough. I really look up to Rachel Hawthorne, Emily Bronte, Stephanie Meyers, JK Rowling just to name a few. 

What book are you reading now?
M: Reboot by Amy Tintera 

Are there any new authors that have grasped 
your interest?
M: Yes! There are a lot of great up and coming talents in publishing right now, especially in the indie world. 

You released a book called WICKED WHITE can you tell us a little about it for those who haven't  read it  just yet?
M: Wicked White is basically a different spin on the rock star romances we’re used to reading. The hero in the story absolutely loathes his fame and the band that he’s in, so he chucks it all after a tragedy and goes into hiding

Has there been any misconceptions  about any of your books and if so what we're they? 

M: Not that I can think of. I know that not everyone loves every book that I write because I try to make them all different, 
and that’s okay. 

What are your current projects? 

M: Feisty Princess (A Sexy Manhattan Fairytale, Part Two), Xavier Cold, and the final book in the Wicked White Series.
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? 

M: When I posted Rock the Heart on Goodreads, I was amazed by the amount of people who found it and wanted to read it. It was very exciting for me. 

Can you share a little of your current work with us?

Feisty Princess Snipit (Publishes Oct. 13th):
“Your tits look amazing in that dress. You should wear it more often,” I tell her.
She narrows her eyes. “Do you always have to be so crass?”
“Yes,” I say with a smile. “It’s part of my charm.”
“Who said you were charming?” She jabs back at me.
I raise one eyebrow. “I seem to recall being able to charm you out of your panties on more than a two occasions.”
“Well,” she scoffs. “Everyone loses their minds from time to time. If anyone ever questions me about it, I’ll please temporary insanity.”
“Insane with lust, you mean.” I chuckle. 

Out of all your characters who was your personal   favourite to write?
M: Trip Douglas in Rock the Beat. He has some funny one-liners that I adore. I love rereading that book. 

Which one from all your leading men would you say is the readers favourite book boyfriend  from your books? 

M: It’s a toss up actually. People like them all, but the most talked about recently are Riff from Rock My Bed, Xavier Cold from Phenomenal X, and Alexander King from Naughty King. 

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing? 

M: I have writer ADD. I can’t force myself to stay in one story if I’m not feeling it at that moment. It’s the main reason why I always have a couple projects going on at one time. 

You have done signings in the US and UK how different  do you think the readers are? 

M: I love the readers no matter where I am. They are all so kind, and supportive in every place that I have been in. I have the best readers.

Do you read  your reviews  and how do you  deal with bad ones? 

M: I read the ones on Amazon, mainly because I go there to check on the rank of the book. I try to not let them get to me no matter how much they hurt and just try to remind myself that not every person loves every book.

Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work? 

M: Rachel Hawthrone. She wins me over no matter what genre she writes in and I admire that.
Who designed the covers? 

Letitia Hausser from Romantic Book Affairs.

What was the hardest part of writing your book?

M: Getting it finished. LOL I get distracted so easily ALL the time by EVERYTHING.

Do you have any advice for other writers? 

M: Don’t give up. If you really want to publish a book, it will happen as long as you keep trying. 

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers? 

M: Oh, my gosh. THANK YOU so much for supporting me and my work! It means the world to me. <3

Do you have any funny quirks or stories you would like  to tell us about yourself?
M: I’m kind of a hand washing fanatic and have tiny hands, like the size of a second grade boys. lol

Where do you see you self in ten years time? 

M: Still writing. Maybe branching out into other genres.

Do you have any pets?

M: Yep. Two dogs. A Cavachon and a Shiba Inu. 

What is your favourite  dish to cook in the kitchen?

M: Chicken and Noodles. 

Thank you for  joining me today you have been amazing.

M: Thank you for having me. I simply adore you, so this has been a real treat! <3



Hi J.D  how are you today?

I'm doing great. Thanks for thinking of me for an interview!

Tell us a little about yourself?

I'm a University of Oklahoma graduate with a degree in journalism. I've
worked as a researcher and editor for trade magazines, reported on a wide
variety of topics as a freelance writer, been a technical writer and
syndicated humor columnist for several years. I'm now writing fiction,
including the Ikana College contemporary romance series. J.D. Brick is a
pen name. I'm also a wife and mother.

What is your favourite movie?

Somewhere in Time

What is your favourite colour?


What star sign are you?


Are you a action, horror or Romance movie 
type of man?

Well, I'm actually a woman, but I'm definitely a romance movie type.

What is your ring tone on your phone?

Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys

What do your family  think about you writing and have they read any of your work?

My college-age daughter is my main beta reader and sometimes my harshest
critic. If I can please her, I feel good about sending my writing out into
the world. My son refuses to read my romance stuff because Gross, Mom. He
did read my humor columns, many of which described my efforts to raise him
without going completely insane. My husband reads all of my work, and because he's a good husband who doesn't want to sleep on the couch, 
he says it's the best thing he's ever had the
 pleasure of reading.

Are you any good in the kitchen and what is your specialty ?

I can follow a recipe, but no, I'm nothing special in the kitchen. My daughter and husband are much better and so I try to get them to do the
cooking as much as possible. I can make a decent pot roast or roast chicken. I'm especially good at making reservations.

What is your favourite  food?


What is the most  romantic thing you have done for a girl guy?

I once sent my husband on a scavenger hunt of clues to follow from his office, all over town, ending at the bar in a hotel, where I was sitting
in nothing but a trench coat. Really obvious, I'm sure, to everyone there, but I was fulfilling a certain fantasy of his. I'd booked a room at the
hotel, of course, so that's where we eventually ended up.

Are the stories old ones 

you have saved or new?

The stories I'm writing now are all new.

What is your favourite  genre to write?

I loved writing humor but I'm excited to be writing fiction and especially, romance. I try to include humor in everything I write. Well,
except for the technical writing I used to do. My bosses probably would've frowned at me trying to be cute in computer manuals.

You have written variety of different types of books,  which book was your favorite to write?

My favorite has been the one I've just finished, Tangled Up in Blue. The reaction to it has been a lot of fun, as well. I love hearing from readers
who were touched by it.

When and why did you begin writing?

I've been writing stories since I was a little kid. I always intended to be a hard-hitting journalist and travel the world. I did a bit of that,
but then I started doing more feature writing and humor. Then I got into technical writing when my kids were young because I wanted something I
could do from home. I always meant to write fiction as well, but somehow the years slipped by, and I'm just now starting down that road.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I was the editor of my high school paper and managing editor of my college paper. I guess at that point I saw myself as a writer.

What inspired you to write your first book?

Well, for my humor books, it was mainly my family members and the experiences we had as a family that provided most of the inspiration. For
my Ikana College series, I was inspired in part by some of my own experiences in college.

Do you have a specific writing style?

Well, that's kind of difficult to answer. I've been told that it's descriptive and sometimes lyrical.

Who was the easiest character to write for and why and  hardest and why?

The easiest character to write so far has been Blue in Tangled Up in Blue. Even though he's a male character, and I'm writing it in alternating first-person POV, the writing just flowed
very easily when I was writing from Blue's POV. Readers have told me that Blue comes across as a very real guy. It's interesting to me that it was
actually easier for me to write the main male character than the main female character. The hardest character has probably been Megz. She's one of the 'bad guys' in the story and it's been challenging to find the right balance in her character so that she comes across as realistic.

which lead character  is your personal  favourite  and why?

My favorite is Blue. As I mentioned in the previous question, I found it very easy to get into his head.

What was your favorite  book as a child?

When I was really young, I loved a book called Where the Red Fern Grows. I read it over and over. I loved Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys books, as
well as Little Women and To Kill a Mockingbird. When I was a little older, I read and re-read books like Gone with the Wind and all of the Judy Bloom

How did you come up with the title?

Well, the main male character is Blue and being a romance, it worked to have my female character tangled up in him. Plus, I am a huge Bob Dylan
fan, and obviously, Tangled Up in Blue is one of his songs.

How much of the book is realistic?

I actually did live during college in a party house known as the Canadian Embassy. That's pretty much the only thing that's realistic. I wish Blue
was real!

Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?

No, not really. I do use bits and pieces from my own life, though.

Have you ever binned a book when half way through thinking it wasn't good enough?

Yes, I have files full of ideas and chapters I wrote years ago and then gave up on in despair.

What books have most influenced your life most?

Little Women, To Kill a Mockingbird, Beloved, Pride and Prejudice

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

Toni Morrison

What book are you reading now?

I have a stack of Alexandra Fuller's books that I checked out of the library, and I'm amazed that I've only just discovered her writing. It's amazing.

Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?

She's not brand-new, but I am blown away by Leah Raeder. Absolutely stunning writing.

What are your current projects?

I'm writing Book 2 in the Ikana College series. I'm also working on a YA book called The Scar Ceremony.

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?

I was a voracious reader from the time I learned to read. Very early on, I remember wanting to write stories and be a writer. I don't really remember
not wanting to write.

Can you share a little of your current work with us?

Right now, I'm working on Shelter from the Storm, which is Book 2 in my Ikana College series. Book 1, Tangled Up in Blue, ends in a cliffhanger,
and Book 2 continues (and concludes) the love story begun in the first book. The series takes place on a college campus in Oklahoma and revolves
around a group of students from wildly different backgrounds who find themselves living in a ramshackle party house known as the Canadian
Embassy. Lots of lust, love and drama ensues, accompanied by a lot of great music. Books 1 and 2 are focused on the love story of Keegan and
Blue. The books also explore the use and misuse of power, the idealism that we tend to have in our early 20s and the consequences young adults
sometimes have to pay because of the actions of older generations.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

Finding the time and avoiding distractions. I love the old Dorothy Parker quote: I hate writing. I love having written. That is so me. I love when
I've finished something; there is no better feeling. But being in the middle of it is just agonizing for me. I can very easily find excuses not to write.

Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

I'm in awe of Toni Morrison. The epic themes in her work, the vivid dialogue, the unbelievably real characters. It's really hard to pick just
one favorite author. Actually, it's impossible
 for me. But Toni Morrison is definitely at the
 top of the list.

Who designed the covers?

Kari Ayasha from Cover to Cover Designs.

What was the hardest part of writing your book?

Making the time. Like everyone else, I have a lot of other obligations that seem to take up most of my time, so carving out those uninterrupted
hours to be able to just write was, and still is, the hardest thing.

Do you have any advice for other writers?

It's the same advice every other author gives, so it sounds cliché, but it's still true: Read, read and read some more. And then make yourself sit
there and write. Even if what comes out at first isn't great, just sitting there typing (or scribbling) somehow gets the creative juices flowing, and
you will get better.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

Thanks so much for reading and please spread 
the word!

Do you have any funny quirks or stories you would like  to tell us about yourself?

I'm kind of a goofy and disorganized person, no matter how hard I try not to be. I seem to just stumble into silly situations without even trying.
That's actually how I started writing a humor column, just by documenting some of the weird stuff that happened to me. It's usually something really embarrassing. Like the time we were out in Colorado hiking and I went off the trail to spend a penny, as they say in England. I found a bush to get behind, but I did not realize there was another trail just above me until a group of guys came hiking along that trail and got a good look at my
bare ass. One of them called out "Nice view" and I almost tumbled down the mountain, whirling around and trying to pull up my shorts. I tripped over my own feet and ended up sprawled with my shorts and underwear around my ankles, giving them quite a sight and a good story to tell. Stuff like that provides good material for a humor column.

What do you like to do to keep fit?

I run and do yoga and pilates.

What do you like to do when your not busy working and writing?

Spend time with my family. And my favorite thing of all is to read.

Where do you see you self in ten years time?

Hopefully with several best-selling 
novels behind me!

Thank you for joining me today you have been awesome.

Thanks so much for having me!!
