Hi Readers! I am a writer, reader, wife, mother, teacher, and photographer. I married my high school sweetheart - a real-life second chance love story! - and have been a hopeful romantic ever since. When I'm not reading swoon-worthy romances or letting my characters take over my stories, you can find me sipping on a fountain soda with a true crime documentary on TV.

At least I wish that was all I had to do. Usually I'm chasing my two daughters around with my camera, grading papers, or cleaning up after the animals on our mini-farm (at least emus, goats, chickens, dogs, and cats are cute, right?). 


Reviews  for Alex Lightwood

I had a hard time putting it down last night and fell asleep with my iPhone in hand.

I really enjoyed the twist at the end.

I had to stop for a moment and just look wide eyed at the screen. That was an amazing twist I could not see coming.

Funny and cute. Relatable characters. Interesting photography aspects.

Very real dialogue.

I loved it!
