The Series that Wasn't Meant to be a Series

When I started the book We're All Animals back in 2016, I really hadn't anticipated that it would turn into the series it has become. Now with the recent release of the third book (and having started the fourth), I recognize that maybe it is time to let people know about the series and the best order to read these books. So, here we go... 

It started with a broken heart and it took no time for Chase Jacobs' world to spin out of control. An unwanted pregnancy allows his mother and obsessive future bride to manipulate and control his life, turning him bitter and resentful. His destiny becomes a dark road to misery and whenever he tries to take the wheel, temptation only leads him further astray.

When a provocative and sinister side of life introduces itself, Chase discovers there's an animal lurking inside each of us; a powerful creature that wants to take over. But will he let it win?

The second book in the series is Always be a Wolf, published in April 2017. 




In the gripping sequel to We're All Animals, Chase Jacobs moves to Toronto with his Colombian bosses, Diego and Jolene Silva, where they expand their elite sex party business. The underground's best-kept secret is going legit, but just as Chase starts a brand new life, tragedy strikes.
The heartbreaking lessons ahead of him are the most difficult he's ever had to face, and Chase must rely on his new family to help him through. But will his blind faith in Diego and Jolene prove to be a mistake, and has he underestimated just how far they are willing to go to prove their loyalty?
He learns there are times when passion and anger cause you to throw away the rule book even in the face of deadly consequences. He learns that words have a great deal of power but not as much power as silence. But most of all, Chase learns that in a world full of sheep, one should always be a wolf.

The third book in this series was published in the fall of 2017 and is called The Devil is Smooth like Honey



El narco. A monster. Un diablo. Jorge Hernandez had been called many things, and it always made him laugh. If there was one word that could be used to describe him, it would be untouchable. Corrupt politicians combined with his charming disposition had contributed to Jorge’s success, but it was often the underlying threats behind his handsome smile that sealed the deal. He was unstoppable.

In Paige Noël, he had met his match. She was a woman as dangerous and sadistic as she was soft and gentle. The last thing he expected was to propose after an explosive first meeting, but the intense fire between them was as addictive as the thrill of violence and power.

When some of his personal enemies turn up dead, Jorge shuffles his daughter into a Canadian school, deciding that things are getting a little too hot in Mexico; but does life ever slow down in this dark underground world?

The devil is smooth like honey, but is heaven ever far away?

Songs that Inspired Always be a Wolf!

Here we are again! My latest book, Always be a Wolf is coming out and as with all my books, I have a list of inspiring songs that I listened to during the writing process. These are the songs that I felt drawn to throughout the writing process and might help to demonstrate the vibe of the book. Here we go!

In the gripping sequel to We’re All Animals, Chase Jacobs moves to Toronto with his Colombian bosses, Diego and Jolene Silva, where they expand their élite sex party business. The underground’s best-kept secret is going legit but just as Chase starts a brand new life, tragedy strikes.

The heartbreaking lessons ahead of him are the most difficult he’s ever had to face and Chase must rely on his new family to help him through. But will his blind faith in Diego and Jolene prove to be a mistake and has he underestimated just how far they are willing to go to prove their loyalty?

He learns there are times when passion and anger cause you to throw away the rulebook, even in the face of deadly consequences.

He learns that words have a great deal of power but not as much power as silence. 

But most of all, Chase learns that in a world full of sheep, always be a wolf



Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne

This was definitely the song that stood out to me in the weeks leading up to starting Always be a Wolf. It was the song that encompassed the energy of the book, especially the first few chapters.



That Smell by Lynyrd Skynyrd

This song was mentioned while Chase and Diego were stuck in traffic and although it seems minor in context, readers will get a sense as to where the story is headed. 





Swim by Madonna

Madonna's music has been inspiring me for years and this particular song helps capture a heavy mood during a traumatic time in Chase Jacob's life.



Disassociative by Marilyn Manson

As I said many times, Marilyn Manson's music has always been a huge influence on my writing and his book was no exception. This song definitely captured the mood for the second half of the book, especially near the end.

(Sorry, I was having issues uploading the video...here is the link:-)

Break my Stride

This is a song that unexpectedly came along while doing the edits for the book. In fact, this is one of two songs in the final and ironically, very violent scene.



Summer of '63

Also, a song that popped up at the end of the book, during final edits and it just worked...for so many reasons, it was perfect.
