Adios Pantalones Sneak Peek!

Here's a sneak peek into Ryan's story-  which releases at midnight tonight! Have you pre-ordered your copy yet? 

Foul Mood

Something was definitely wrong with me tonight. I was in a shitty mood, and for no good reason. At least, not one that I could pinpoint.

“Hey, Ryan,” a female voice shouted at me from across Sam’s, the bar my brothers and I owned, and I knew what was coming before I even turned to face her.

The fact that the woman shouting at me was a gorgeous brunette did nothing to improve my state of mind. Beautiful women were a dime a dozen in Los Angeles, and I got to see them every single night. Hell, most of them screamed my name and left me their phone numbers on their way out the door, each one hoping I’d call.

Part of me no longer wanted to indulge in this game of let’s get Ryan to take his shirt off, but like a good fucking sheep, I did what was expected of me.

“Yeah, sweetheart?” I forced a grin, my teeth grinding together as I fought the urge to run.

She looked around at the bar, still packed even though it was closing time, and gave me a grin of her own. “Can I get an Adios . . .” Her lips pursed and her eyebrows raised seductively as she waited.

“Pantalones,” the rest of the bar crowd sang out in unison.

So I did what I always did—took off my damn shirt and tossed it onto the register, screams and whistles filling my ears like we were at a strip club.

As I made the last drink of the night, I got lost in my own thoughts, my mind a scary place to be when I was in one of these rare moods.

I couldn’t remember how this tradition got started in the first place, but I was fairly sure that I brought it on myself. You would think it would be every man’s fantasy to have a roomful of women screaming his name each night. You would think that every guy on God’s green earth would love to have women falling at his feet the way women seemed to fall at mine.

But if you thought that about me, then you didn’t know me at all.

Everyone always wants to know why I love London so much. It's hard to put into words the way a place just FEELS. There's just something about London that is unlike any other city I've been too (so far). It's comfortable, when it should be anything but.

Growing up in Southern California my whole life, I wasn't exposed to certain architectural things. There were no castles. There wasn't anywhere I could go and visit 1000 year old buildings that were LITERALLY brimming with the things we read about in our history books. I mean, can you even wrap your mind around something being a THOUSAND years old??!! It's insane to me.... in the best possible way.

London is magical. It's dark. It's cultured and diverse in a completely different way than America is. It's just a really fucking cool city with so much to do and see.

But to be honest, there's still so much of Europe I want to explore. I'm hoping I'll find a new favorite, but since London was my first, it might be hard. What's your favorite European city? I wanna know!!!

Ps.... had the best time at the book signing last Saturday!!!! :)

Have you met Daniel Alexander?
Daniel is my most favorite guy character that I've written to date. He knows what he wants and he refuses to stop until he gets it. He's smart enough to see through the walls a woman puts up and instead of thinking they're too high, he figures out how to scale them instead! He's the type of man who knows what and who is worth fighting for.
I wrote Daniel when I was dreaming up qualities that would be able to sweep a strong woman off her feet. Strong women are not always easy to love. So I made him stronger. And bossy. Successful. And romantic. And kind. I love him. Hard. I know you will too. 
This book was previously released under the title Heartless in 2014. 
If you never read Heartless, then this is new to you!  :)  
Go meet Daniel & Elizabeth today!  You'll be glad you did.  <3

Social Media Perceptions

I've been having a lot of interesting conversations with people lately about social media and the things that they (and other people) present to the masses. I'm sure that many of you have heard the term "FAKEbook" when used to describe Facebook, right?  I remember the first time someone said that to me, I had to ask them what they were talking about because I honestly didn't know what they meant. FAKE book?  Like pretending like your life was great when it really wasn't?  WHY?  What would be the point of that?

I wasn't judging when I asked that question... I just literally didn't get it. And I know that I didn't get it because I don't do that. And when I don't do something, I assume naively, that other people don't either. 

Here's one thing I can promise you if you follow me here on my blog, or on any of my other social media platforms.... I won't use it as a means to present something that isn't true. If i'm not happy, you won't see me posting a picture where I look like I am. If things aren't good at home, you won't see me posting hand-holding, laughing and loving, coupley type photos. If one of my books isn't selling very many copies, you sure as hell won't see me posting about how great it's doing. My social media is an extension of my life. And I try to live that life as authentically and truthfully as possible. I don't see the point in misleading people. I wouldn't want to be misled. And I believe it does a huge disservice to all of you who follow me.

The truth is, I actually think that social media in general can be very damaging to our psyche. It can make you feel very bad about yourself and your life. It's extremely easy to believe that what you have and who you are isn't good enough if you let it. But that's ridiculous! We can't measure our self-worth through other people's meticulously planned photos and overly scripted captions. As long as we are constantly comparing ourselves to what we perceive other people as having, we are robbing ourselves of joy.

Comparison is the enemy of joy. And it's really hard to be happy when you're always feeling like less than enough. Which is probably why I'm not a fan of the showy or braggy online mentality either. I'm not a big believer in showing off material things that most people don't have. You have a brand new $100,000 car? Good for you. You have the biggest diamond on Facebook? Cool. I could honestly give two shits about any of that stuff. Now that's not to say that I don't like anything nice because of course I do... you just won't usually see me posting about it because I don't think that's what truly matters (aside from the traveling because I want to share all of those experiences with you and I get really excited to show you all the things that I see! But it's never meant to brag. Ever.)


Those are what fuel my heart and soul. Those are the things I want to talk about... and post about.

Each one of us is on a journey. One that is uniquely our own. It's not for anyone else. I know that my path is meant for me, and only me, and I'm grateful for every single thing I've gone through so far in my life. I know who I am. I'm extremely secure and self-confident. I always have been. I know what makes me happy. I know what brings me joy. But I'm also in a constant state of growth and I love to learn new things. I strive to be a better person. And that's really what I hope you see when you interact with me online. :)

Goodbye 2017 and Hello 2018!

New Years has always made me happy. It's one of my favorite times of year. No matter what else is going on in my life, I always look forward to the hope and the joy that New Years Eve brings. There's something utterly magical about a New Years Eve night.... a time when dreams come out to play and all our hopes and wishes for the next year are conceived.

Each year I pick a theme that I center all my goals around. This year will be no different. I know exactly what I want. And my wish for you is that you'll be happy; truly, genuinely, purely happy. That you'll find what brings you joy and you'll get the opportunity to do it. And if you're already living that life, that you'll continue doing what makes you smile and fills you up inside. I believe that everything happens for a reason, no matter how much it hurts, or how badly it sucks at the time. It's usually the most painful events that give us the most soul growth. I hope that you'll choose to grow and that you'll remember that the hard times won't last forever. I pray that you'll be better off than you were before.

When Oprah left her daytime talk show, she ended it with a magnificent speech. Parts of that speech touched my heart so deeply back then - and when I found the words again - I realized how deeply they still resonated within me. So I wanted to share them with you. I hope her words light a spark that lead to a fire in your soul and in your heart.  

"What I knew for sure from this experience is that we are all called. Everybody has a calling, and your real job in life is to figure out what that is and get about the business of doing it. 

Every time we have seen a person on this stage who is a success in their life, they spoke of the job, and they spoke of the juice that they receive from doing what they knew they were meant to be doing. We saw it in the volunteers who rocked abandoned babies in Atlanta. We saw it with those lovely pie ladies from Cape Cod making those delicious potpies. ... We saw it every time Tina Turner, Celine, Bocelli or Lady Gaga lit up the stage with their passion. 

Because that is what a calling is. 

It lights you up and it lets you know that you are exactly where you're supposed to be, doing exactly what you're supposed to be doing. 

And that is what I want for all of you.

To live from the heart of yourself. 

You have to make a living; I understand that. 

But you also have to know what sparks the light in you so that you, in your own way, can illuminate the world."

I am so thankful for each and every one of you. Thank you for being a part of my life. I can't wait for 2018!

Adios Pantalones Update

Ryan Fisher's book is coming! If you've already pre-ordered it on Amazon then you might have gotten a notification email about it. I pushed the release date back a month because I'm not quite finished yet and I don't like to rush my stories. You guys don't like it when I rush either, so.. Ryan's gotten a little delay. :) He will now be released on March 7th.

Click here to pre-order on Amazon now:

I'm so excited about this book you guys! Ryan is.. well, he's Ryan. He's so damn loveable and the brothers are all so funny when they're together. I absolutely love being in their world. Plus, this is the first time I've ever written about a single mom and that seems so crazy to me, considering that I was one for so many years.

I absolutely love writing about things I know, things I've experienced and things I hope for. Writing a single mom is making it very easy to do exactly that- even if I want to smack some sense into her character at times. lol

I know you guys are going to love this story and I can't wait for you to read it. You know, once I finish it. HA

Until then, I hope you have a great holiday. I hope that you are surrounded by love, friends, family and all the things that make you happy and bring you joy (aren't those the same things? I think they are lol).
