Purchase Sweet Desire, Wicked Fate on


What Jaden knew for certain:

1. Buried family secrets can be deadly when uncovered.

The hairs on Jaden's arms rose as she saw the jug's strange contents slowly unfold. Tiny limbs stretched, bony fingers moved the ceramic shards off a distorted face, and citrine-colored eyes sprang open. Jaden's body went rigid. She sucked in a ragged breath as wiry tendrils lashed out from the malformed thing and plunged their sharp tips into Jaden's ankle.

2.  She wanted Briz.

The innocent girl Jaden had been earlier today, trembling from her first kiss, was nowhere to be found. Now she wasn't feeling the least bit pure or virtuous. Taking hold of Briz's shoulders, Jaden drew him closer, letting her lips fondle his. This time he didn't stop her.

3.  The American poet e.e. cummings was right.

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.

About the Author

I live on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with an artist, five cats and a parrot. Sweet Desire, Wicked Fate was inspired by sculptures my partner in life and business, artist Steven Lee Smeltzer created.

With a desire to promote teens that are PONO, Hawaiian for "doing the right thing," I have created the site DaKine Teens+ at dakineteens.tumblr.com

After all, our future lies in their hands.

I apologize that my book list is incomplete. Over the past two years I've read 150+ books, but when I'm not reading, I'm working. Currently I'm writing bk 2 of Sweet Desire, Wicked Fate, and have obviously been a slacker when it comes to posting what I've read. Though as I'm playing catch-up on my list I have decided not to rate them. Just know that if I've posted it, I liked it and would rate it between a 3 & 5. I find it very hard to rate something that I know someone has put their time, heart, and soul into creating.
