In my spare time through the next few years, I continued reading and began learning how to write. I accumulated stacks of completed manuscripts and an increasing determination to get them published. Happily, my sixth full-length novel has just been released. I would describe my books as fresh, flirty, and fun contemporaries about strong women and men who deal with relatable situations in familiar settings. They’re also emotionally rewarding with a liberal helping of humor, because, really, what point is there to life without laughter?
After living my childhood and adult life in a variety of Midwestern cities, I was always an island girl at heart, yearning for white sands, perpetual sunshine, and crystal blue waters. This past year I turned that dream into reality by abandoning my snow shovel along with my day job and moving to Florida to write full-time. The view from my lanai is great, the wildlife is interesting, and my handsome and heroic husband handles all of my IT issues and regularly prods me to interact with actual living, breathing people, not just the ones I invent and put on the page.

When it came time to publish my collection of completed manuscripts, I had to determine if any of them had common denominators that could join them together in a series. After sorting through the possibilities, I realized I had three unconnected manuscripts that featured stories about sons of extremely wealthy families. Wyatt was an intellectual from Atlanta, Dylan was a daredevil from New York, and Ryan was an athlete St. Louis. To give this unlikely trio some common ground, they needed an inciting incident that would be strong enough to create a bond that would last into the future.
It seemed imperative for Wyatt, Dylan, and Ryan to meet on a day that would have been memorable under any circumstances and one that readers would relate to. Because the trio would have been high-school age in 2001, I chose to bring them together on 9/11, a dark day for each of them personally as well as for the country. They call the friendship they formed fourteen years ago continues to the present, Remaking Ryan is the third book in the Billionaire Brotherhood series. I hope you’ll enjoy his journey.
Best wishes for a Happy New Year!
Coming January 4th from Jacie Floyd!
In Book Three of the Billionaire Brotherhood, Ryan Eastham appears to have it all—fame, fortune, and legendary good looks—but injury has ended his high-profile professional football career and he’s at loose ends. After years of living, breathing, and training for football, he’s searching for something meaningful to do with his future. He expects nothing but boredom from the on-air sports announcer job he’s been offered, and his so-called love life is more tabloid fiction than fact.
Due to the shattering betrayal of her late husband, Jenna McCall is wary of men and their meaningless promises. Isolating herself from friends and family while she reexamines her goals and dreams, her baby daughter is her sole focus. Ryan’s unscheduled intrusion into her life leaves her irritated, edgy, and a little intrigued.
Family commitments throw this pair together as reluctant companions on a cross-country drive from Massachusetts to Missouri. Despite a wrong turn, stolen car, and fussy baby, they find unexpected pleasure in one another’s company. Amid wedding chaos and intense family drama in St. Louis, they each proceed with plans to start new careers in different parts of the country, but their attraction continues to build. When it’s time to say good-bye, Ryan challenges Jenna to remake their lives and plan a future together instead.
