2. How long did it take you to write this book? NATURALLY YOURS is a 25,000 word novella. The first draft took a few weeks to write, and then I took another month to rewrite and polish the story before sending it to my publisher.
3. Who is/are your favorite Author(s)? There are so many favorites! Since I have lots of friends in the romance genre, and don’t want to hurt feelings by failing to mention some of them, I’ll list my favorite thriller writers. Currently, they are Lisa Unger, Linwood Barclay, Lisa Garner and Michael Koryta. I’m sure I’ll discover others.
4. What is your all-time favorite book that you have ever read? Memoirs of A Geisha by Arthur Golden is my favorite book of all time. His writing is lyrical and the story is so convincing it’s almost impossible to believe it wasn’t written by a Japanese woman. The book is a masterpiece.
6. What are your hobbies? When I’m not writing, I’m reading, or watching TV or movies. I especially enjoy thrillers, action-adventure movies, and dramas. During football season, I’m glued to the television on Philadelphia Eagles game days. I love watching football. I like a few other teams, but the Eagles are my home team and have my heart.
7. What are you working on now? I just finished a full-length contemporary romance novel and turned it into my publisher. As soon as I sign the contract I can tell you more about the book. I hope you’ll read my upcoming release and also discover my backlist titles.
8. How long have you been writing? I’ve been writing since I was nine years old, and sold my first story to a regional news magazine at nineteen. For many years I worked as a reporter and newspaper columnist before writing fiction. My first romance novel was published in 2007, and I wrote several books under another pen name before changing direction and writing sweet but sexy mainstream romances as Adele Downs.

About the Author:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I won this book from Boroughs Publishing group, at their facebook party-by answering a question with a description to a sexy fireman photo. I answered with a short few sentences, and won. I was tickled, because I have learned that all the writers for Boroughs are pretty amazing!
The character Mickey saved the life of Amanda’s restaurant partners child. Now said restaurant owner wants to do something nice for him. But the problem is that Mickey has one simple rule: no contact after rescue. And she, the Mother of the boy that was rescued, has an organic restaurant and Mickey prefers the meat and potatoes kinds of meals. He also is uncomfortable accepting gratitude. Mickey is simple and shy, he’s someone who is just trying to get a little peace and quiet. And it was when Mickey finally caves to take the woman up on the meal, he meets the cook: Amanda and his whole life changes. You know how that goes, ‘Love at first sight!’ And poof your whole word changes!
The chemistry these two have is amazing. But with Mickey, he has demons. He is a Veteran from the Iraq war, and he still hasn’t gotten over it. However, in order for Mickey and Amanda to live happily ever after he must first be able to move on from his past. The thing is, can he?
The part that is so upsetting is while Mickey was busy saving the little boy, he was late for a date, (which was not an unusual thing,) and ended up dumped. You see how it is?! Do a good deed for someone, and get knocked down….
This book: “Naturally Yours” just goes to prove to you, that when you think you’re at a stand still, and nothing else matters, you can finally find the answer to all of your prayers. Answers aren’t meant to be searched for, but just found when you aren’t looking. They are just “Naturally yours!”
I give this sweet, romantic book five beautiful stars. It was a wonderful book, and I truly loved every single minute of it. I would recommend this book over and over again. I found it so compelling, and here I was rooting for Mickey and Amanda, and wanting them to work out. When you read something, and find yourself involved in it, so much so that you are rooting for the characters, you know you have found a good book.
