About the book

Vengeful Vows book cover

Daffodil Simmons knows how the world works. She’s the spider, all the world is a fly. She has spent her life spinning webs, using people for personal gain. And now, she’s about to spin her biggest one yet – for vengeance. She’ll do whatever it takes to get revenge on the two men who abandoned her: her father, and her former lover. When she blackmails her half-sister Leah Westwood’s ex-lover to do her bidding, she tightens her fist around his will and brings him into submission to her plans.

Vincent Miller hates that Daffodil has a noose around his neck, forcing him to do whatever she wants. But he’ll do anything to steal Leah back from Jacob Westwood, the man who destroyed his life, even if it means making a deal with a blue-eyed spider. Yet as Daffodil spins her web, he finds himself entrapped by a silk of a very different kind and intrigued by a woman who only sees him as expendable prey

Everything is going according to plan until another spider, a ghost from Daffodil’s past, begins to interfere with their web. It’s a battle of wits against a powerful foe. When it comes time to make the ultimate choice, can Daffodil lay aside everything she’s ever known… for something even greater? Can Vincent set aside his need for revenge to go after what’s in front of him?

Autumn~ The Year’s Last Loveliest smile : An Update.

usb It’s Fall!! My favorite time of the year.In the beginning of the year I set some writing goals for myself. Specific, Measurable, Attainable,Realistic & Time specific. It’s important for us to set those kind of goals so that we don’t end up setting expectations that are too high or run the risk of just wandering through our plan without a focus.

If you want to see what they were you can check the post out 2014 Writing Goals. So let’s take a look,

Reading: You know the popular Stephen King quote…if you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the tools you need to write. Reading is like fuel for any writer. I’m doing well on my Goodreads reading challenge. I’m at  61% of my goal.  I got to try some new authors and genres I won’t normally read. You can check me out on Goodreads. Did you sign up for the challenge? How are you doing?

Writing: One of my favorite Bible verses is Proverbs 16:3 Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans… so in as much as I had my plans and worked hard to achieve them I left room to adjust to His grand design. After all everything I do is  for His glory.Well I think I delivered on what I promised….almost.

1. I released When You Let Go in May (formerly titled Amarachi). It’s doing really well. I’m thankful to my reader & supporters.

2. I’ll release the first book in the Sons Of Ishmael series, A Scoop Of Love on Dec 3rd.

3. In lieu of the holiday story I wrote some short stories, you can read them in the My Shorts category.

If I had a USB connected to my head I would have been able to churn out a lot more…LOL. It’s hard walking around with all these ideas, every character is vying for attention, but in due time..everything in order. Currently I’m working of book two of the Ishmael series titled Anchored By Love.

However I didn’t do any events.  I spent that time on a family vacation and the premiere of my company’s first feature film. As well as being a wife, mummy and having a full time job.

I say all this not to brag in anyway but to give God the glory and encourage you that you can do anything, absolutely  anything you set your mind to. Just stay connected to your creator and plan accordingly but most important of all be flexible to His will. Celebrate the small things, keep the faith, hold on to hope while relying on the grace of God. Paul said it best…but by the grace of God. I am what I am.

Next time I’ll share a character interview for my current heroine and the writing process I use.

How did you do on your goals? Did you remember to celebrate your smallest accomplishments? How to do you stay connected to God in this world of ‘busy’? Please share in the comments.



Thank you for stopping by! I love to make new friends, please leave a comment, or connect with me online!  If you’ve enjoyed this post, sign up for my newsletter and follow this blog!

2014~ My Writing Goals

2014 goalsThen the LORD replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it.~ Habakkuk 2:2

Hey everyone, the second week of the year. What’s the outlook? Did you write those goals down?  I believe in writing my goals down and I do pretty good with that.
Normally by the beginning of the year I would tell my readers/followers what to expect. Well its the 10th and I haven’t done that…why? Fear of being held accountable because I have so much I want to get accomplished.
Tonight I’m writing it down and sharing and I hope you all keep me accountable.


If you don’t have time to write, you don’t have the time (or tools) to write~ Stephen King

With that being said. I decided to take part in a Goodreads reading challenge. I would read 36 books this year by the grace of God. I have three books down already. To take part or see the challenge click here

Right now I’m reading Never Say Never by Victoria Christopher Murray.

I have also committed to actively reviewing everything I read on my blog.Do you have a recommendation for me? Let me know.


This year I’m hard at work. I aim at pushing myself further while still committed to the best quality possible. For right now, this is what my calendar looks like #prayforme

Amarachi~ The Grace Of God.

A Fighting Chance, Book 1 of Sons of Ishmael Series Itohan & Osaro’s story

A Holiday Story. Not sure of the couple yet or the holiday 🙂


I have some lined up. Once they are set in stone I’ll share.
