I read pretty much any chance I get. I mostly read YA books but some adult ones as well. To me all books are precious gems and are meant to be treasured.

Character Interviews:

Today I have the pleasure of having two of the characters from Breathe here to answer some questions. Sadie White and Jax Stone!

Welcome, Jax Stone! Thanks so much for participating in this interview!

1. So, Jax your a very popular rock star. Have you always loved music and wanted it to be a career? 
 I liked music from a young age. At six I thought I'd be the next Tommy Lee but soon realized drums weren't my thing. I asked for a guitar next and after two years of begging,  my parents bought me one for Christmas. From the moment my fingers touched the strings I knew I'd found it. My thing, ya know.
2. What is your favorite song, or type of music?
Rock is my favorite. Classic rock especially. Bon Jovi's Dead or Alive will forever be my favorite song. It was the first one I taught myself to play
3. Who or what has been your inspiration as an musician?
Guns & Roses, Bon Jovi, and even Motley Crue. I listen to the greats. I study them. It's what keeps me from conforming.
4. So, your in love with this girl Sadie. What was your very first impression of her?
I was intrigued. I'd had girls do insane things to get close to me but she was the first one to actually get on my private property as an employee. Of course, I was unaware at the time she wasn't there because of me. Then I confronted her and she immediately set me straight. I think she walked away with a little piece of my heart right from the start. No girl had ever talked to me the way she did.
5.  If you had to pick one thing about her that you love the most what would it be and why?
 Her honesty. No matter how hard the truth is or how much it may hurt she always lays it out there. She doesn't play games.
6. If you had to pick one thing you would change about her what would it be and why?
Nothing. You're not getting me with this one. She will be reading this too. I'm not stupid ;)
7. What do you think of her family, her mother in particular?
Jessica is a different person these days. I'm not going to lie, when Sadie got hurt because of Jessica's actions I hated the woman. But she is Sadie's mom. Sadie loves Jessica. Sam needed Jessica. Getting her medical help changed things for both Sadie and Sam. Now, Sam I adore. He has to be the coolest kid in the world. He's got his sister's eyes and I swear he may be the prettiest boy I've ever seen.
8. If you had to plan the perfect date what would it be?
I'd love to take Sadie on a regular date. Maybe go to a concert and out to dinner without people noticing me. We have to be so careful with our dates in order to keep fans away. I'd just like to once get to just be a regular guy on a date with his girl. 
9. If you could change one thing about your life what would it be and why?
I'd get to go to high school with Sadie. I missed high school. I wish I could experience with her.
10. And finally, Jax what are your plans for the future? Short term and long term?
Short term: Get Sadie moved out to California after her graduation. 
Long term: Get a few more Platinum Records on my wall, win a few more Grammys, and of course marry the girl of my dreams and build a life with her. 

Hello Sadie thanks so much for doing this interview!
1. So, you have been through a lot in your life. What has helped you to get through it all?
It was my life. When it is all you know then you accept it and deal. I guess in the back of my mind I always knew I'd change things one day.
2. Your relationship with your mother seems to be a bit difficult. If you could change one thing about her what would it be?
Jessica and I are doing better now. Her mental health has improved and she is still under a doctor's care. If I could change one thing about her I'd change her maturity level. She's always acted like she was sixteen. I'd like for her to act her age.
3. What are some of your favorite hobbies, or things to do in your spare time?
I read quite a bit. Spare time isn't something I was familiar with until recently. Now, in my spare time I am either being whisked away on a jet to some elaborate event with Jax or enjoying the beach at Jax's summer house.
4. We hear you are involved with the famous Jax Stone what is that like?
Insane, crazy, amazing, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
5. What was your first impression of him?
I thought he was quite possible the most gorgeous guy I'd ever laid eyes on and he had an ego to go with it.
6.  If you had to pick one thing about him you love the most what would it be and why?
His thoughtfulness. I might have once thought he was full of himself but I was so very wrong. He is very careful to make sure everyone around him is comfortable. He really cares about others feelings. He listens.
7.  If you could change one thing about him what would that be and why?
Maybe make him less irrisistable. It's hard watching every female on the planet drooling over him. I'm getting better but it's still hard to swallow. I have to fight the urge  to grab him and yell "MINE" when we are in public... and that's a humbling thing to admit.
8. Describe your dream date?
As long as I have Jax to myself it's a dream date. When he's all mine with no cameras flashing, no fans begging for autographs... that's the perfect date.
9. We have noted another yummy boy in your life named Marcus. What is your relationship with him?
Marcus and I have remained friends. His sister has become my closest friend at school. Right now he is back at the University of Alabama so we see each other on rare occasions.
10. Lastly, what are your plans for the future? Personal and with Jax?
 I'm attending UCLA next Fall so I'll be moving out to California after graduation. Instead of Jax spending his summer here we are going to get me settled out there.  Right now that's as far as we've planned. I don't know what the future holds but I can't wait to find out.

Release Date: October 21, 2011

Being the good girl isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Ashton Gray has grown weary of playing the part to please her parents, and to be worthy of the town’s prince charming, Sawyer Vincent. Maybe That’s why she’s found herself spending time with Sawyer’s cousin, Beau, while he’s away for the summer camping with his family. Beau is nothing like her perfect boyfriend. He’s the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, dangerous in ways she’s only day dreamed about, and the one guy she should stay away from.

Beau never envied Sawyer his loving parents, his big nice home, or his position as quarterback. He loves him like a brother. Which is why he's tried everything in his power to keep his distance from Sawyer’s girlfriend. Even if he has loved her since the age of five, Ashton is Sawyer’s girl, so therefore she’s off limits. But when Sawyer leaves for the summer, Ashton, the one girl Beau would move Heaven and Earth for, decides she wants to get into trouble. Stabbing the one person who’s always accepted him and stood by him in the back, is the cost of finally holding Ashton Gray in his arms. Is she worth losing his cousin over?.... Hell Yeah!!!!

What happens when you are stalked by Death? You fall in
love with him, of course. Pagan Moore doesn’t cheat Death, but instead, falls in love with him.
Seventeen year old, Pagan Moore, has seen souls her entire life. Once she realized the strangers, she often saw walking through walls, were not visible to anyone else, she started ignoring them. If she didn’t let them know she could see them, then they left her alone. Until she steps out of her car, the first day of school and sees an incredibly sexy guy lounging on a picnic table, watching her with an amused smirk on his face.

 Problem is she knows he's dead. Not only does he not go away, when she ignores him, but he does something none of the others have ever done, he speaks. Pagan is fascinated by the soul. What Pagan doesn’t realize is that her appointed time to die is drawing near and the wickedly beautiful soul, she is falling in love with, is not a soul. He is Death and he is about to break all the rules.
