As Tia Deltoro’s 23rd birthday approaches, she looks forward to meeting up with her old high school friends and hitting the ski slopes. What was supposed to be a relaxing weekend getaway, staying in a beautiful cottage overlooking the mountains, turns out to be a hellish nightmare when Tia unmistakably recognizes the person delivering their firewood.
It has been five years since Tia graduated from New Holston High, yet she remains emotionally shackled to her past, or more specifically ex-best friend Carson Rodriguez, the man holding the bundle of firewood. When he accuses Tia for setting up their chance meeting she fires back running him off. Unfortunately for these two former friends, Mother Nature decides to show them an intervention they’ll never forget! The drastic shift in weather conditions causes Carson to return and wait out the horrific weather conditions in the confinements of the cottage with Tia.
While the storm rages outside, the two distance themselves to opposite sides of the living room for their own protection. Tia keeps herself distracted by looking at the old high school yearbooks that were packed in preparation for planning the upcoming reunion. Through a series of flashbacks, the memories come flooding back. She can’t help but wonder how things could have gone differently if her ex-boyfriend Evan didn’t always lure her back into his corrupting grasp or Carson’s on-again-off-again girlfriend Erin hadn’t been so conniving.
In the end all of the jealousy, secrets, and lies ultimately severed the ties that held their four year friendship together.
With the strong winds from this blizzard of mass destruction leveling their only means of shelter one window and roof tile at a time, only one question remains…will Tia and Carson be able to put aside their anger towards each other long enough to survive another storm? Continue reading
I was lucky enough to get an interview with her!!
When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
Hmm, I guess I have always been a writer. The first story that I ever wrote was for a contest for Christmas in the third grade. It was about a grandmother and her grandson who got stranded during a snow storm. I won the blue ribbon.
That’s kick ass!! You must have been so proud!
What inspired the idea for Aquilla’s and Julius’ story?
I have no idea how to answer that. I never know where my stories are going. They just seem to transpire through my fingers. I’m not one to map out a story and follow it. I like to just start it and see where it goes. I’ve tried having a plan and following it. It doesn’t work for me. I change it anyway.
What advice/thoughts would you like readers, who are considering reading your book, to know?
I tend to write a little on the dark side. I don’t sugarcoat much. I write it how my mind tells me to write it. The best advice that I could give is…If you like simple, soft love stories, you should probably move on.
I agree. I think I mentioned something similar in my review.
Do you have any authors who inspire you?
I do have a few. Too many to count without leaving someone out. And my favorite authors are Indies.
Do you have any other hobbies besides writing?
Reading of course. Does drinking beer count? I’d say it does. I like to paint, walk through the woods, and listen to music.
Drinking always counts! lol
Do you have any affirmations you tell yourself when you have writer’s block?
Not really affirmations. Sometimes I have to walk away and give it a couple days. If I’m not into it, I’m going to write word vomit and end up erasing it. I’m better off to step away for a day or two.
What books do you currently have out besides “Plausibility”?
My first book was probably the most subtle I have ever written, “This too shall Pass”, I have Star series, “Starburst”, “Stardust”, and “Falling Stars”. “Underestimated” was probably my darkest yet and is not for the faint of heart, and “Plausibility”.
I see my reading list has just grown tremendously!
Do you have any other books in the works?
Yes, “For the Love of Maddie” will be released early to mid-December, depending on the editors work load.
What else would you like us to know about yourself and/or your books?
I’m kind of an ‘I don’t give a shit writer,’ If you love my writing I am absolutely thrilled, and love to hear about it. If you don’t, I’m okay with that. If we all liked the same kind of reads, there would be a pretty boring choice of books.
Well, whatever you’re doing, it’s working! So keep up with the not giving a shit writing!! lol
Thank you Jettie Woodruff for the interview! It was a pleasure and an honor!

If you read these books, please be sure to leave reviews for her! ♥
Giving a deceptive impression of truth and reliability at such an early age is certain to cause you to believe what isn’t real. Aquilla Chavez was raised by a loving father, and a brother who may have loved her a little too much.
Aquilla was spoiled, adored, bringing cheer when disaster threatened a family. She was exposed to a life of crime all while, lovingly being sheltered and protected from it. Will she ever reclaim the one man who she believes to be the love of her life?
She didn’t want to be where she was forced to be. She wanted nothing to do with the person she was involuntary turned into. Aquilla had one goal, one goal that would save her from the catastrophic life she was suddenly thrown into. She had to find him. She had to try, or was this the plausibility of a life she was meant to have? Was the life she was torn from the disastrous life? Could this be where she was meant to be? How would she ever know? What if he found her? What if she never saw him again? What if….She didn’t want to? Continue reading
