Marcus bowed his head. “I apologize for Becca’s action. She won’t bother you again. You have my word.” He looked toward Sable and took a small step. The wolf whined and curled herself into a tighter ball. Marcus hesitated and shook his head. For a moment he slumped, mixed emotions crossed his face, then he took a deep breath and squared his shoulders. “I’m truly sorry.” He turned and walked proudly out the door. “Man, is he cute,” Carrie uttered, her hand on her chest. “Isn’t he the guy that protects the wolves north of here?” Jimmy stepped forward. “Don’t even think it, young lady.” “He’s way too old for you,” Dylan and Jilly said simultaneously. Carrie laughed. “Cool it you guys. I just said the guy was hot. Don’t have a cow.” She put her hands on her hips. “I’m not a baby.” Jimmy watched the door. “What was that all about?” Dylan shook his head. “I have no idea but, girls, I want to personally apologize for all mankind if that’s the way you feel after a man gives you the once over.” He shook his body and brushed his hands down the front of his shirt. “I feel unclean.” Jilly walked over and gave his face a slight pat, lightly tweaking his dimple. “Relax, big boy. It’s me she was trying to get a rise out of, although you are pretty darn cute.” she winked. “Thanks, darlin’.” He gave her a quick peck on the lips. “I have something for you,” he whispered and reached into the front pocket of his jeans. “Turn around.” He gently pushed on her shoulder to turn her back to his front. He lifted her hair as he slipped the chain around her neck and fastened the clasp in back. “I know it can’t replace your friend, but I thought it would be a nice memory of her.” Jilly fingered the small charm and turned to face Dylan. “Thank you so much, Dylan.” Tears slipped down her cheeks and she swallowed the lump in her throat. The replica was of a mother bear with a small cub sitting beside her. “I’ll treasure it.” She reached up and wrapped her arms around his neck, her tears falling on the bare skin of his neck. Dylan gently rubbed her back. “And I’ll treasure you darlin’.”



Describe Your Book Cover and How it Came About:

Boy where to start on my Book Cover. Of Course, I absolutely love it! How did it come about you may ask? Well we have to go back 20 years; I attended my first RT Convention in Orlando Florida. To say I was a virgin attendee and starstruck is putting it mildly. I first met John DeSalvo and Paul Sampson at this convention. I met John at many more conventions throughout the years. He always remembered me by name and was so kind and down to earth. It’s been years since I attended a convention and/or talked with John but when my publishing company told me that we were going to go to print with Living In Shadows they of course asked who I wanted on my cover. The first person that came to mind was John. To say I was nervous and intimidated is an understatement. I mean we are talking John DeSalvo! I had no way of contacting him and hated to bother him, my stomach was in knots when someone gave me an email address that they thought was his. I sent off the email with butterflies in my stomach.

Enter Paul Sampson. Paul is a friend of a friend and heard that I wanted to speak to John about the cover. Unbeknownst to me he contacted John and told him to check his junk mail.

Now understand weeks have gone by since I sent that all important email and my publisher is asking me what we’re going to do about the cover. I’m thinking well it was a long shot, he probably doesn’t even remember me. Any cover design Lynn does for me will be awesome.

I was in the mindset that hey I gave it a shot but it wasn’t meant to be. But since John is on the cover you of course realize what happened next. I can not tell you how I felt when I opened that email from John saying that he would be happy to be on my cover. I was shaking and crying in my excitement as I called my publisher and gave her the news.

John was so fantastic to work with such a true professional. I want to Thank him again; I’m so honored to have him on the cover. Thanks to Paul Sampson for helping to get the ball rolling, Pam at DCL for believing in me and Lynn Hubbard for doing such a fantastic job on creating the cover art.

This cover is a dream come true for me and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.



I’ve been an avid reader my whole life. When pregnant with my 2nd child I decided to try my hand at writing. 21 years later I’m still doing what I love. I’ve been married to the love of my life for 29 years. We have two wonderful boys who have grown into remarkable young men and have found beautiful soulmates. I have been blessed with my first grandbaby and he keeps us all on our toes and fills our days with laughter.

I love to hear from my readers.  You can visit my Facebook Page Anna’s Journey to receive sneak peeks of my works in progress as well as links to purchase my books.
