Tomorrow my first novel, Coffee-to-Go officially launches in both ebook and paperback formats. I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve dreamed of having a published novel for a long time and I am now realizing my dream. While this is the first novel I am publishing, this is not the first story I’ve written. Since I began writing fiction in 2015, I have completed sixty fan fiction stories. A few of those were also novel-length. I also have a science fiction novel that I’ve been working on since 2015 that I hope one day will also be published.
I began writing Coffee-to-Go this past January, and I’m happy that it’s complete and ready for publication. It began as just an idea for a meet-cute between a nurse and a barista and turned into so much more. It may not be the next great American novel, but I am very proud of how it turned out. It does touch on some very serious issues, specifically corruption within our immigration system (my version being completely fictionalized, although it no longer feels as far-fetched as it did when I wrote it). However, at its heart Coffee-to-Go is still just a love story, with just the right amount of sexy heat.
As I wrote the novel, I fell in love with my lead characters, Leo and Andy, and I hope my readers will too!
