One night stands.
Career-driven Ali Whitman, never dreamed of having one, until she finds herself waking up next to a handsome tattooed man she knows nothing about. After celebrating her promotion to field reporter at Entertainment Rocks! magazine, she breaks her number one rule - to focus on work without the distraction of the opposite sex.

Rules.
Tyler Young lives by his own set. As bassist for Devil’s Garden, he exudes sexual energy and lives for the moment; no strings attached, no regrets, and no looking back.

When the two are brought face to face during an interview it goes sour, sparking a string of disasters. As their feelings for each other grow, they find themselves living by a new set of rules, but demons from the past haunt their new found love. Is it possible to crawl from the ashes of the aftermath or will it all go down in flames?

Love.
Perfect bliss or complete disaster?

What inspired you to write this book?

I’m a big fan of rock concerts, romance, and the beach so I combined those things I love and came up with a rock star/surfer who falls in love with his mortal enemy, a reporter.


Excerpt from Blissful Disaster:
“I’ve never met a girl like you. You tell me exactly how it is. You’re not afraid to try something you never thought you’d do. You’re smokin’ hot with a brain like Einstein. Hell, you even wrote smut about my band in a national magazine and I still can’t get you off my mind.” He presses his forehead against mine. “Don’t you get it? I want you and not just for the few months I’m in L.A. You’ve survived an earthquake and shark attack with me. You’re the one I want by my side in a zombie apocalypse, babe.”

Heat flushes through my body like wildfire. Never in my wildest dreams did I think the most romantic thing I’ve ever heard would involve the terms shark attack and zombie apocalypse. I’m in, much deeper than I’ve ever imagined. I want this to work with Tyler, but the obstacles aren’t easy to overcome. Yeah, I know, nothing great is ever easy, but being together requires Tyler to change his whole outlook on what he wants. Is he ready to do that? I’m finally getting to a place in my career where I want to be, too. I’m not ready to give it up before it starts. We need to think with our brains rather than our hearts. Is there really a chance for us?


What exciting story are you working on next?
Right now I’m working on my first paranormal romance about a supernatural hunter who falls for the town’s coroner, but there’s more to her than meets the eye.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?
When I received my first publishing contract back in 2013.


Do you write full-time? If so, what's your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find time to write?
I’m a full-time pharmacist and when I’m not working at the pharmacy I’m writing. Sometimes time management is a challenge so I find myself writing at night and on my days off.

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I need complete silence and usually have a few cats hanging around me.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Everything from an astronaut to the president but when you’re a writer you can enter any world you can imagine.

Anything additional you want to share with the readers?
I love hearing from my readers so please, message or email me and let me know what you think of Blissful Disaster.
