It’s a short story about a blind date. Pretty much everyone has been on at least one! And they don’t always go well.
Where can readers purchase a copy of your book?
Amazon, Barnes and Noble, the Astraea Website, and other places e-books are sold.
What is your favorite part of writing?
Making an emotional connection with the things that my characters are doing, then re-reading it later and going: I did this?
What advice would you give to aspiring writers?
Just keep at it no matter what happens or how you feel. Because if you love writing, then you should do it.
If you had to pick a theme song for you book, what would it be and why?
“Follow me down”, it’s just all about putting your trust in someone even if you’re not sure.

Mila takes a hands off approach to dating. She’s independent and picky and thinks she knows it all. When her best friend decides to set her up on a blind date with a guy who an-swers to the name of Jax, Mila decides to take a leap of faith. After all, with a name like Jax, how can he not be a dream boat?
Like most blind dates, however, Jax doesn’t meet the expectations that Mila created in her imagination. With how badly she’s struck out in her past relationships, is that really such a bad thing?
