My latest book, Talk Derby to Me, is now available as both ebook and paperback on Amazon! I can’t wait for everyone to read Mari and Evan’s story!
High school newspaper editor-in-chief, Evan Maldonado, is right on track for college next year and pursuing his dream of being a journalist. To put the finishing touch on his college applications, he’s taking an intern position with a well-known newspaper where he’ll receive a letter of recommendation from the editor. There’s just one little problem: the business intern spot he was expecting to get is taken. The only other position they have available is covering the local roller derby league.
Mari Valdez isn’t worried about getting into college. All she’s concerned with is getting through the repulsive world of high school. Sure, she has her best friend, but she still has to put up with teasing because of her multi-colored hair or bruises. The bruises are from roller derby, by the way, the only thing that Mari looks forward to. It’s been her safe haven since her world imploded.
To get more information on the derby league, Evan follows Mari to her practices and games. To call their friendship rocky would be an understatement, but the more Evan and Mari are together, the more they seem to connect. When Mari’s personal life boils over, she finds herself confiding in Evan. And just when everything seems to be coming together for the two, a horrible mistake may separate them for good.

But when the opportunity presents itself to record new music at Rich Records, she takes it. Sure, it comes with conniving record exec Jimmy Richards. Not to mention, her boyfriend trying to sneak in studio time in hopes of becoming a rock star. But Jade feels like it’s the perfect spot to get new music out of her system.
Thanks to his father, Austin Richards knows the record business as well as anyone. He couldn’t care less about the glitz and glamour that comes with the industry, though. That’s why he’s going to college to become a music teacher. Just don’t tell his father, who’s paying his tuition, expecting Austin to join Rich Records upon graduation.
After venting over Jimmy Richards, Jade meets Austin, but he’s too embarrassed to tell her who his father is. Instead, he uses his mother’s maiden name. While Jade records in the studio, the two grow closer, drawn to one another through music.
