Review: Out of Left Field by Morgan Kearns!

Strike One

Xavier is a jerk with a capital A.S.S. and he offers no apologies. If a woman is willing to give, he’ll gladly take, walking away without a backward glance. He’s not looking for commitment and the only diamond he’s interested in has three bases and a home plate.

Strike Two

Dr. Frances Holden knows all about fixing broken bones and taming arrogant athletes. As the Team Doctor for the Las Vegas Rockets she deals with stubborn ballplayers every day. But nobody is more stubborn than Left Fielder Matthias Xavier III.

Strike Three

When a shoulder injury takes Xavier out of the game, it’s Frankie’s job to get him back on the diamond. His rehab turns out to be more than either of them bargained for, and when she promises to help him face his scarred past, neither of them are prepared for the fireworks that come Out of Left Field and threaten to scorch them both.

My Review:

Morgan Kearns hit it out of the park with Out of Left Field! It's a grand slam of pure awesome!

That's right! After two wonderful books, Morgan has been able to top them. While I adored Rich and Grayson, I think I can honestly say that I'm a Xavier girl. (I love him!)I knew after the few glimpses of him we saw in In It To Win It that his book would be good. Really good. Xavier did not disappoint. He's an strong, sexy Alpha male with a vulnerable side, wounded not only by his hurt shoulder, but things from his past. My heart ached for him throughout the novel. He's charming, funny, and wears those hot baseball pants. What's not to love? The fact that Jimmy's on the cover is just icing on the cake. Add a beautiful and tough as nails doctor who is both patient and able to put up with X's attitude and you've got one hell of a couple. Literally! Matthias Xavier is flammable! He'll set your heart on fire!

There is a lot more humor in this book, which is just great! I always had a smile on my face or felt like laughing. There are a few touching scenes that had my eyes tearing up. And there's one scene in particular towards the end that is my FAVORITE scene EVER! Wow!

I can't wait to read Ricky Santiago's book and continue this series that I've fallen in love with. Now that I'm all caught up and done with Xavier's book, I feel like my arm has been cut off. These characters feel like friends, like actual people that I've grown to love. I think I'll reread them right before book 4 comes out.

I bow down to you, Morgan Kearns! Keep up the good work! <3


Happy Reading!

Review: In It To Win It by Morgan Kearns!

Sportscaster ‘Plain Jane’ Alexander was a late bloomer. Back in the day, she blended into the background, content to watch from the sidelines while Grayson Pierce soaked up the spotlight. Content until he broke her heart. Bitter, hurt and angry Jane did the college thing, came out of her shell, and never looked back. Grayson loves baseball. It was his pastime in high school, his passion in college, and now … his career. However baseball isn’t the only thing in Grayson’s heart. The problem is that Grayson has the reputation as a bad-boy. He likes fast cars and loose women and expensive liquor. All things that make him deplorable in Jane’s eyes, throw in his hot and cold attitude and she is ready to scream. When the promise of an exclusive interview brings a very reluctant Jane to Grayson’s home, she realizes that not everything is as it appears. 

My Review:

In It To Win It is the second book in the Deadlines & Diamonds series. It is also the fourth book I've read by Morgan!

After falling completely in love with Fade to Black, I wondered how In It To Win It would compare. Well let me tell you, In It To Win It is even better than Fade to Black. It's half the length of FtB but packs quite a punch!(Sorry, Rich. Sorry, Kate. I still love you both!) In It To Win It is the story of Grayson Pierce, the smoking hot, bad-boy baseball player, and Jane Alexander the "plain" sportscaster for KHB. The two share a past and things get pretty tense for a while and helps heat things up. The two of them have great chemistry!

I stand by the statement I made in my review for Fade to Black. Morgan really is the Queen of Contemporary. Once again the story excels with the characters she's created. I applaud for the wonderful character development. Each character is unique from all other characters. Not only that, but several of the characters from Fade to Black appear in Grayson's book! (Nate! <3) We also meet Xavier, Rockets Rookie and the star of book three, Out of Left Field. After the brief taste of him, I'm unbelievably excited to read it. And no, not just because of the Jimmy Thomas cover... Okay...Part of it is that cover. :)

There are so many sweet moments in this book. I nearly bawled like a baby in the end. The last chapter is gold! Where can I find a guy like Grayson? Lots of romance, humor, and suspense as well. The story line is so intense and intricate. There are lots of new factors playing out in this novel.

This series has quickly become an addiction. Definitely a favorite of mine! I'll be sad when I finish book 3 because then I'll have to wait for Santiago, book 4's man! I promise I'll be patient, Morgan! :) I'll be cheering you on from the bleachers!

Instead of voicing how much of a fool I was not to pick up these books sooner, I'm going to go start on book 3!


Happy Reading!

About Unforgiven:
Happily ever after is interrupted and the vampire nation is turned on its ear. Brandi Vaughn struggles to find herself in the shadow of her powerful vampire family and her socialite twin sister. The search for her abducted half-sister, Danielle, lands Brandi in an emotional tug of war between the light and the dark, good and evil, a warrior and a rogue. Good people do bad things. Sometimes the bad guys have a good reason. Could you forgive the unforgiven?

For the first time ever, Unbound is now available in print!

About Unbound:
Betrayal, passion, family secrets, murder, and vampires ... What else would one expect during their freshman year of college? Danielle Vaughn is secreted away after her birth and hidden until she leaves her small town in search of high education.

She must find a way to survive in the new world she is thrust into by a power hungry rogue on the hunt for gifted vampire youth. The hierarchy of the vampire nation is rocked by the existence of a demi-vamp who challenges their narrow-minded views of the human race.

About Cat Miller:

I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, and now I live not far from my birth place in Perry Hall, Maryland. I have two teenage daughters and a man that keep me busy when I'm not working full-time as a Certified Medical Coder. I'm an avid reader and I love all genre of romantic fiction from historical to contemporary to paranormal. Sleeping has always been a problem for me so most nights I can be found in the living room reading or writing instead of in bed like the rest of the world. I don't watch television. It's not a conscious decision, it just never occurs to me to turn it on when I have books to read and writing to do. It can actually be a hazard, because I never know what the weather will be until I look outside and I have to rely on my kids and coworkers for local and world news. I love creating the characters you love and love to hate. My characters remind me of people I know and people I wish I had never known.

You’re stranded on a desert island. What books do you take with you?

Oh, my! That is a tough one. I will need every book ever written by the following authors:
Anne Rice, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Maya Banks, Lauren Dane, Dana Marie Bell, Bianca D’arc, Lisa Kleypas, Sandra Brown, and Suzanne Brockmann. I could keep going but I won’t push my luck. I’d hate to be greedy.

What book(s) do you wish you would have written?

The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice

Favorite book character?

Acheron Parthenopaeus ~ The Dark Hunter Series by Sherrilyn Kenyon (Be still my pounding heart)

What are you currently reading?

I just finished reading Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James. The last book before that was Chaos Burning by Lauren Dane. Lauren is one of my favorite writers.

Favorite moment as an author?

My favorite moments are when I get fan mail. Well, I don’t think of them as fans. I prefer to call them readers. Several times a week I get a message on Facebook or an email from a new reader who loved Unbound and wants to know when the next book will be out. It is still unfathomable to me that I have written something people want more of.

What’s your favorite scene/line from your works?

It’s a very sad scene actually. In Unbound Dani comes to a point when she realizes that her life as she knew it is gone and nothing from her human past fits with her vampire future. She mourns the loss of her high school sweetheart and the normal, uncomplicated life her human mother working so hard to provide for her in one gut wrenching, life changing, heart breaking night.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not writing?

I enjoy spending time with my kids. I read a lot and we just bought a house in the spring so I like going to antique shops to look for things to use in the house.

Favorite movie/show?

I don’t watch TV on a regular basis. There is only one show I watch and that is The Game of Thrones.

Favorite food?

I am a foody, which means I love almost all food but I think my favorite is Italian.

Favorite color?

Purple! I am a die-hard Baltimore Ravens fan.

Chocolate or vanilla?

Yes, please, one of each.

What places would you like to visit?

I would like to take a train trip across the US and stop in as many little towns and big cities as possible. I would love to walk the streets, eat the food and visit the people from across my homeland. Then I will work on the rest of the world.

Do you have any interesting dreams or goals?

My goal is simple. I want to write and share it with as many people as I possibly can. 

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I see myself a little more established as a writer and hopefully a lot more organized. Being an
Indie writer is hard work. I hope to learn to more effective balance my “real job” and family with my writing.

If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional. with whom would it be?

Eve. I’d like to get her side of the story.

What do you consider your greatest accomplishment?

I believe my biggest accomplishment professionally has been picking myself up after the crushing disappointment of leaving my publisher and starting over as an indie from scratch. I nearly quit, but decided to give it one more try.

What advice would you give to an aspiring author?

I have two pieces of advice.

1.      My advice for other writers is to write about what you love. The hardest thing to do as a writer is to develop a character that others can relate to. When I write I live the scene and experience the emotions with my character. If you don’t feel it, neither will your reader. You have to find a subject you love and can immerse yourself in to make it believable. The biggest compliment I have ever received is that my readers laugh, rage, and cry along with my characters. They pick sides and cheer for their favorites. That is what you have to strive for in your writing.
2.      This more for the indie authors. If are to survive as an indie writer you have to write for the love of writing, not the hopes of a big publishing deal or fame and fortune.  Being an indie means putting out a great deal of your life into something that doesn’t pay back over night. If you don’t love the art of writing you will quit before it has even begun. Get a real editor and cover artist. We find ourselves in such a hurry to get our work out there that we tend to only do half the work need to be successful as a writer. Learn from those who have gone before you. Take the time to do it right the first time.

If you could be any mythology creature, what would it be?

I would like to be a vampire, of course. 


Three lucky winners that comments on this blog will win either an ebook or a signed bookmark and mini-poster of the winners choice. 

Cat is also giving away two signed print copies on her blog! 

Happy Reading!

Fade to Black by Morgan Kearns Review!

Fade to Black is the debut novel by award-winning short fiction writer and journalist Morgan Kearns. It is a tempestuous and witty love story, complete with dangerous twists and turns that keep the reader guessing until the very last page. 

Kate Callahan is a news reporter in Salt Lake City whose life seems to be perfect. Her attentive boyfriend, Jesse Vasquez, is determined to prove his love for her. But the day she steps through the doors of KHB as their newest reporter and meets photographer Rich Spencer, everything changes. There is something about the way he caresses her with his eyes, speaks to her without saying a word, and lights her skin aflame with a simple touch that makes her rethink everything she’s ever known. 

Ultimately, she is faced with an impossible choice—one that tears her heart in two—which becomes excruciating when fate steps in and decides for her. Walking along a mountain of heartache and regret, Kate struggles to find a world where love does conquer all

My Review:

Morgan Kearns is the Queen of Contemporary Romance!

Seriously! I cannot remember enjoying a contemporary romance as much as I did Fade to Black! I enjoyed Morgan's Paranormal romance Heart Ache and her two PNR shorts, but FtB blows them out of the water and it was her debut novel. After finishing the novel only a few hours ago, I feel like I'm having withdraws. Imagine the joy I felt learning that Rich, Kate, Nate, and Roxy are all back in book 2. I was elated. The book is like a soap opera, only better!

As stated above, Fade to Black is Morgan's first novel. The story is set primarily in a news room. This aspect of the story is not only informing, it's fascinating. All of the things you learn while reading this book is genuine information. Morgan worked for 10 years as a journalist, and knows her stuff!

While that aspect of the story is great, the characters are even better!The character development is phenomenal Not only are Rich and Kate delightful characters, I found myself falling in love with Nate, Rich's best friend. Shea, Rich's wife/ex-wife, aka the bad guy, is a great villain. She's crazy, but somehow you still feel sorry for her in certain spots throughout the novel. The KHB crew is full of great characters.

Fade to black is romantic, suspenseful, and addictive. I didn't want to put it down. Despite being just under 500 pages, I devoured it in a very short time. It's entertaining and exciting. I laughed, wanted to choke characters, cry, and at one point felt like I was as depressed as Rich. There are twists and turns that keep you guessing until the very end of the novel. It's a story about true love, second chances. If that's not the description of a good book, I don't know what is!

From the back of the book: "Happily ever after" is a long road along a dark horizon where heartbreak is something to survive and ultimately live for."

I don't know why I waited so long to read these, but you can bet I'll be starting book 2 ASAP! :)

One of my favorite quotes:

"Baby-juice, man. Your woman got baby-juice all over my seat."


Happy Reading!

Eternal Hunger by Laura Wright review!


A dark and sexy debut paranormal romance

In the dark, fear and desire are one... 

Alexander Roman wants nothing to do with those of his vampire breed. Fate places him at the door of Dr. Sara Donohue, who is dedicated to removing patients' traumatic memories. But as their world's collide, Sara and Alexander are bound by something even stronger as one becomes hunter and the other, prey. And Sara's only chance of survival is to surrender to the final-and most unimaginable-desire of her life.

My Review:

Vampires are far from over!

Eternal Hunger is the first book of the Mark of the Vampire series. It's also Laura's debut novel! I'd heard a lot about this series from numerous bloggers and paranormal romance fans. I was thrilled to receive a copy to review! Thank you to the author for providing the copy!

Eternal Hunger was a very good book. The Roman brothers are so intriguing and I liked all three of them. I'm excited to continue the series and find out more about the other two boys! Alexander is the eldest brother. He's mysterious, possessive, and sexy. EH is about him and Doctor Sara Donahue. Sara and Alexander have great chemistry. Alexander struggles with his attraction to Sara, and I felt that it really spiked the passion between the two. Some of the scenes practically sizzle! Dillon is another great character in the story. Heck, Mrs. Wright does a fabulous job with all of her characters. I do wish that I would have had a little more background information about them though.

The book has a lot of unique terms throughout which makes the story different and very interesting. I really wish a glossary would have been included at the end, but if you pay attention you should be able to remember what most of them mean. I really like Laura's writing style. The story flows really well. The ending is a slight cliffhanger that had me eager to know what will happen to Nicholas!

I need to pick up book two ASAP! :)

I recommend this book to any paranormal romance fan that has a soft spot for vampires, especially JR Ward fans. This series could be something you check out while waiting for her next book to come out!

4.5 /5

Heartache by Morgan Kearns Review!

One Touch

Gabrielle Ryan felt an electric attraction to her new employer the first time he reached out and shook her hand. She dreams of him, fantasizes about him, but all Nikolai wants is an assistant—and to Gabby’s chagrin, it’s not to assist him with taking off his pants!

One Beat

An ache has inhabited Nikolai Voinea’s chest for the last four hundred years. Yet stubbornly resolute not to repeat his father’s mistakes, Nikolai refuses to take the one female who is his heart’s greatest desire.

Captures His Heart Forever

When murder charges make Gabby second guess everything she knows about him, she’s hurt and angry and determined to walk away. But Nikolai’s just as determined to do everything within his power to keep her.

My Review:
This is the first novel I've read by Morgan Kearns. I thoroughly enjoyed her two novellas and this book was just as good!

Heartache is the perfect book to enjoy poolside on a sunny summer day! I should know, both the front and back cover are bent from a combination of reading and accidentally getting the book wet! One thing is for sure, this book really got a workout!

I had the pleasure of meeting Morgan in June. Her books are as wonderful as she is, without a doubt! After finishing this, I'm dying to start her other series. The writing flows and is done very well. 

Heartache is about Nikoli, the vampire, and Gabby, the human, who are heart mates. Interesting and unique concept! I've never read about heart mates before. The two main characters go have a lot of conflicts to work through. Like the fact that Gabby is engaged to another man.

The ending of Heartache wraps up everything nicely while also opening up the way for a sequel, which I am pretty excited about!

Heartache is a quick and enjoyable read that should be a staple on any Paranormal Romance fans bookshelf!

Destiny Awaits by Jaidis Shaw Review!

Twenty-year-old Alayna Scott receives visions around water, but even her foresight couldn’t prepare her for the tragic accident that claimed the lives of her parents. With everything she loves gone, Alayna packs up and moves to the small town of Juniper Grove in hopes of starting over.

Jayden McKnight can’t explain the attraction that he feels whenever Alayna is near, but he does know that he will do whatever it takes to win her heart. When a vampire selects Alayna as his next victim, Jayden will stop at nothing to ensure her safety – even if that means bringing Alayna into a world that she never knew existed.

Love blossoms, challenges are made and Alayna will find herself fighting not only to survive, but to understand what she has become.

My Review:

Destiny Awaits is Jaidis Shaw's debut novel. It's the wonderful beginning to what I think will be a great series.

This story takes place in Juniper Grove, a place full of colorful paranormal creatures. It's a short and fast read that is both well written and entertaining. I felt like I jumped right into the story without the need to get my toes wet. It's fast paced and action packed, complete with romance and a paranormal element, making this story worthy of the love of any PNR lover! Seriously, check it out!

All the characters are great. There is such chemistry not only between the couples, but the friendships as well. I'd love to see a prequel between Jayden's parents! All of Jayden's friends and fellow shifters were hilarious. I miss them already! Alayna is a humerus, strong female character, which is one of the things that makes the story great! Violet was an interesting character as well.

I also have to mention the cover! It's lovely and fantastic and really captured the essence of the story!

I'm anxiously awaiting the next book in the Chronicles! I'd love to get to know more about the town and its inhabitants!


Happy Reading!

Interview with author Ann Mayburn and cover model John Quinlan!

Ann, tell us a little bit about Captive Fantasy.

Captive Fantasy is the second book in my Tales of the IWSS series. It is a short and steamy story about Mary and her husband, Sean, and what happens when Mary finally tells Sean her most secret sexual fantasy. The Institute for Women’s Sexual Satisfaction is doing the biggest research study on women’s sexual arousal in the history of psychology and they need healthy, sexually active volunteers to participate. They need to monitor a woman’s brainwaves as she is becoming aroused in order to develop the world’s first pill that will help women become sexually turned on. Kinda like a Viagra for women.

John, was this your first cover? Do you have to get into character?

Yes, this was my first Romance Novel cover, very honored that Ann picked me. Well, the character I am in this book is a convict so being that I have never even been arrested I would have to “get into character” for this but it is all good

Ann do you have any more covers in the making? Explain the process.
Well, for my IWSS series I’ve found that it works best to find the stock image I want for the cover first and then write the story from there. That is what happened with Captive Fantasy, I saw John’s stock photo in the prisoner uniform and the story unfolded almost instantly in my mind.

What’s next for both of you?

Well, I’m working on edits right now for the second book in my ‘For the Love of Evil’ series, Princess of Lust and the next book in my IWSS series and a super secret book and plotting out the next book in my The Kyrimian Cycle series and trying to spend some time with my family and keep my house from deteriorating into something that belongs on the ‘Hoarders’ show. Oh, and I’m getting ready to go to New Orleans in August for the Author’s After Dark conference.

I am going to keep putting my stock images out there and look forward very much to the writers and authors that would like to use my images for their covers. Thanks you all so much.

Do you read, John? If so, what are some of your favorites? What are some of your favorites, Ann?

I have 3 small children so reading I don’t get much time to do as I am always helping one of them around the house with feedings and diapers, lol! I must say I do like Mystery books and autobiographies are just as great to read.  

I go through phases. Right now I’m in a ‘zombie apocalypse/end of the world’ type books. My favorites of those would have to be The Stand by Stephen King, Swan Song by Robert R. McCammon, and World War Z by Max Brooks. 

What did you read as kids?

I’m dyslexic(pity my editors) so reading was a challenge for me growing up. I struggled with letters that would switch themselves around in my mind and because of that I always got poor grades in English and hated the subject. I mean no matter how hard I tried, my brain saw and translated the rules of spelling and grammar into something I couldn’t comprehend.

That changed when I picked up a book in the third grade called ‘Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing’. I fell in love with the book and went on to read the entire ‘Super Fudge’ series, then I read ‘A Cricket in Time Square’ before stumbling upon the Narnia series. I found that while my dyslexia made spelling a bitch, my imagination worked just fine and I adored escaping into those imaginary worlds. 

The most favorite thing I read as a child were the books that allowed the reader to choose their own path, you know it gives a choice as to what you want to do with one being wrong hoping to trick you….loved those!

If y’all weren’t a writer and a cover model, what would you be doing?

Hmmm, I don’t know. The moment I wrote my first book I knew in my heart of hearts that this is what I've been waiting for, the job that isn't a job because I love it so much. I can’t think of what else I could do that would bring me this much joy.

I would still be doing some kind of fitness related modeling which is very similar but I am blessed by all the wonderful writers such as yourself that give models like me these opportunities to showcase our talents.

Ann, what made you want to be a writer?

I decided to start writing in June of '10 after the pre-mature birth of my third son. He was born at 31 weeks, nine weeks early, and it was a very rough delivery. I lost a great deal of blood and had some touch and go moments. While I was recovering from my c-section, without my baby, I had a lot of time to think. In my morphine pumped induced state, I considered all the things that I'd done and what I still wanted to do.

I'd had A LOT of fun in my life, and marrying my husband and having my children was a joy that I can never fully explain. One thing I'd wanted to do was write a book. I've always been a heavy reader, my husband used to moan at my monthly bills from the bookstore, and I have an over-active imagination. The trouble was focusing my ADD 'Oh look a squirrel, oh look a penny' self to sit down and write.

Basically, I stopped making excuses about why I couldn't do it, and sat down and DID it. I found that once I started, I couldn't stop. My muse went into overdrive and I have more ideas than I have hours in the day. Blessed was the first novel I wrote and the first draft was a hot mess. After joining up with critique groups, reading articles, talking with established author's, I cleaned it up a ton and ended up selling it to Liquid Silver Books.

What made you want to be a cover model, John?

Many people kept telling me for the longest time they thought I would be good at it and I just laughed but I got serious with it this past year and it has been a wonderful experience. I would like to personally thank all the writers that pushed me with your kind words (you all know who you are). You are all awesome!

John, what do your body building buddies think of you being a romance cover model?

They like to make jokes and it’s all good because they have told me they respect me for what I am doing and at the end of the day I am on a book cover, jokes aside I am on one and that is something I will forever proud about.

What advice do y’all have for people chasing their dreams?

Write what turns you on! Who cares if the flavor of the week is space clowns from the planet Boobula with tentacle penises. If you try to write about it and it doesn't make you hot, your readers are going to know. More importantly, it will make writing that story a chore and nothing will make your muse take a vacation quicker than boring her.

Never give up, set your sites high and go for them. You only live once so make the most of it! It was my pleasure for being here with you today

Happy Reading!

Wasteland by Lynn Rush review!


Bound by the blood contract his human mother signed four centuries ago, half-demon, David Sadler, must obey his demonic Master's order to capture fifteen-year-old Jessica Hanks. But as he learns more about her, he realizes she may be the key to freedom from his dark enslavement.
The only obstacle-Jessica's distractingly beautiful Guardian, Rebeka Abbott. He must not give in to their steamy chemistry, or he will lose his humanity. But fresh off a quarter millennia of sensory deprivation as punishment for not retrieving his last target, he may not be able to resist temptation long enough to save what's left of his human soul.
My Review: 
Wasteland is more than a book about angels vs demons, good vs evil. The story line is so much deeper than that. It's about what would you do to protect the ones you love and the choices we have. If given the opportunity, would you convert from good to evil?

The book is about two great characters, David the 400 year old half-demon, and Beka the even older Guardian. The pair has fantastic chemistry, but of course, there are obstacles to overcome before they can be together, even though they're supposed to be enemies. There are some major twists thrown throughout the story as well as a lot of action. The sensual scenes are tame, but swoon worthy nonetheless! 

While the story line is good, it's the writing that really makes this story. It is told from David the Half Demon's point of view. At first, I wasn't sure. This is the only book I can ever remember reading in a guy's perspective, but Lynn did a wonderful job. The story is set in Arizona, which I had the pleasure of visiting in the beginning of June, and I felt like I was there again. She does a wonderful job with descriptions and painting a picture for the reader to see. The writing is refreshing. It's the perfect mixture of slang from the present and old fashioned dialogue that makes it believable that these characters are so ancient. Watching David acclimate back into society after being secluded was a very interesting part of the story.

Along with great main characters, the secondary characters are just as good! I'm excited to find that book two is about Russel. Hopefully we'll visit a few more characters from book one in future books. I'd love to see one about Jessica. 

I would recommend this book to anyone that would like a good angel vs demons story from a male POV! :)

Nely Cab was born on December 9, 1974, in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico. She has lived and resided in a small, quiet South Texas town most of her life. Putting her Computer Accounting skills to use, Cab worked in banking for several years. In 2001, the author relocated to Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, where she dedicated time to the study of culinary arts and the art of oil painting. After her return to the U.S., Nely resumed her employment in banking and later transitioned to the field of Social Work. 

Today, Nely Cab writes from the comfort of her home, where she lives with her husband and son. Currently, the writer continues to work on her debut series "Creatura".
