This time of year always makes me think of the things I’m thankful for. There’s a lot to be grateful for, too. So I thought I’d share my list with you.
I have some of the best friends ever. If I’m down, they pick me up. I’ve got one who will willingly push me off a ledge, just to see what happens, laugh, then come help me limp to the hospital. Yes, she is my best friend and I’d do the same to her. We laugh, cry, and growl together. It’s great.
I’ve also got one of the best jobs in the whole wide world. I get to play with the characters in my head and unleash them on the public. Then I get to hear from the public how they enjoyed the characters. Even when they tell me what could be improved, I still know I’ve got a great job. I wouldn’t change it for anything.
In my household I’ve got four pets. Yes, I live in a zoo. Well, it feels like it sometimes. Especially when the dogs bark at the same time and the black cat runs like a maniac through my house. But I wouldn’t trade them. Nope. If possible, I’d add the two cats we had before that have passed, but that’s because I love them and miss them. But the four I’ve got are great, even when they do their best to give me extra gray hairs.
The one thing, although they aren’t things, that I’m the most thankful for is DH and the totlet. The totlet doesn’t know all about what Mommy writes. That doesn’t matter. He’s proud of me because I’m doing something I love. He told me he wanted to be a comic book author. Works for me. Then there’s DH. I couldn’t have asked for a better man. Really. Yes, we have our moments of frustration…who doesn’t? But we’ve also got this unbreakable bond. We can–although we don’t do it often out loud–finish each other’s sentences. When we realize we’re on the same brain wavelength, it’s scary. But like the totlet, DH supports me and my writing. He’s read almost all of it and tells everyone proudly, ‘my wife writes smut’. It was his idea to get the “dirty jeep girl” tire cover for my jeep. When I get frustrated with my work, he picks me up. If I’m feeling good about it, he grounds me while cheering me on. It’s fantastic. I couldn’t ask for a better man.
Those are the things I’m thankful for. What about you? I’d love to know!
I always dreamt of writing the stories in my head. Tall, dark, and handsome heroes are my favorites, as long as he has an independent woman keeping him in line. I earned a BA in education at Kent State University and currently hold a Masters in Education with Nova Southeastern University.
I love NASCAR, romance, books in general,Ohio farm land, dirt racing, and my menagerie of animals. I also write under the pen name of Megan Slayer. I’m published with Total-E-Bound, Changeling Press, Liquid Silver Books, Turquoise Morning Press, Decadent Publishing and The Wild Rose Press. Come join me for this fantastic journey!

And now a little bit about my latest work, Still the One:
She’ll be his salvation if he’s willing to switch.
Being stressed out sucks, especially when you’re in charge of a team. Just ask Eric Trask. The pit crew of the Fifty-Four truck team depends on him. The stress of keeping things running smoothly is wearing Eric down. What’s a guy to do to get a little relief?
Janine Walters knows exactly what Eric’s up against. She’s the public relations face of the team. Pressure is all a part of the job. Her outlet for stress just happens to be wielding a crop.
Can Eric embrace her methods for stress relief or will her suggestion tear their fragile relationship apart?
Reader Advisory: This book contains the use of a crop, spanking, a little bondage, a little pegging, some toys and a woman who knows how to use a strap on to pleasure her man.
Publisher’s Note: This story has been previously released as part of the Switch anthology by Total-E-Bound
