Unmasking Ella: Meet Ella

18 Mar

I’m so excited to reveal Ella Taylor, the main character and modern day Cinderella in my new novella Unmasking Ella. My co-author Krista Newport posted something on her blog about Ella earlier this month. Thankfully, Ella agreed to stop by my blog too so that we could find out a little bit more about the girl in in the mask!

Secret Cinderella

Q & A with Ella

What’s your favorite color?

Tiffany’s blue

Favorite person in the world?

I would be my BFF Fiona, for sure. She’s amazing and loyal.

If you were a super hero, what would your secret power be?

I’d have to say the ability to read minds. There are so many things I wish I could hear.

Who is your secret crush?

If I told you it wouldn’t be a secret now would it?

Irish Mojitos For All!

5 Mar

Welcome to another installment of The Month of Shamrocks!

My BFF / Shamrock opponent Krista Newport (does this make her a frenemy?) posted a delicious looking DIY Shamrock Shake today. Who doesn’t love shakes AND girl scout cookies? Well played Krista, well played. I will accept her frosty treat and raise her an alcoholic beverage!

Behold the glory of an Irish Mojito! I too found this on Pinterest (my addiction) and here so I thought I would share the Irish love.

Irish Mojito

Irish Mojito

Makes 1

2 ounces Irish whiskey
1 ounce lemon or lime juice
1 ounce simple syrup
1 kiwi (chopped)
20 mint leaves
Club soda

Combine lemon/lime juice, simple syrup, kiwi and mint leaves in a highball glass. Next muddle ingredients together. Next add whiskey and stir. Add crushed ice and top off with club soda. Garnish with a four leaf clover!

Enjoy!

Unmasking Ella: Masked Moodboard of Sexy

4 Mar

When I was little, my aunt started a tradition. Celebrate St. Patty’s day in a big way. We’d wake up to green milk, green eggs, green shamrocks mysteriously painted on our arms, and more.

In fact, the celebration has a tradition of expanding even longer than just the 17th. Sometimes it goes for a week or more! So, in honor of my heritage (Irish), my favorite holiday St. Patty’s Day, and the announcement of my new novella Unmasking Ella (Secret Cinderella #1), my best friend and co-author Krista Newport and I will be celebrating The Month of Shamrocks!

I’ll be posting odes to hot Irish men, snippets from books I love, and of course, sneak peaks into Unmasking Ella (who also happens to contain a hot Irishman).

Today brings you a Masked Moodboard of Sexy, to give you a feel for the novel.
