Book description
Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett had always been one to think out-of-the-box, who knew she wanted something more in life than following the same repetitive patterns and growing old with the same repetitive life story. And she thought that her life was going in the right direction until everything fell apart.

Determined not to dwell on the negative and push forward, Camryn is set to move in with her best friend and plans to start a new job. But after an unexpected night at the hottest club in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, she makes the ultimate decision to leave the only life she’s ever known, far behind.

With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. What she finds is a guy named Andrew Parrish, someone not so very different from her and who harbors his own dark secrets. But Camryn swore never to let down her walls again. And she vowed never to fall in love.

But with Andrew, Camryn finds herself doing a lot of things she never thought she’d do. He shows her what it’s really like to live out-of-the-box and to give in to her deepest, darkest desires. On their sporadic road-trip he becomes the center of her exciting and daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But will Andrew’s dark secret push them inseparably together, or tear them completely apart?

Due to sexual content and language, this book is recommended for 17+ – Adult Contemporary Women’s – New Adult Fiction

-What Inspired THE EDGE OF NEVER-

THE EDGE OF NEVER was inspired mostly by my lifelong dream to just drop everything and travel the world, much in the same way that Camryn wanted to do before Ian died, except with more direction and definitely not on a bus. Camryn and Andrew’s outlook on life about living and loving in the now is how I’ve always wanted to live. And writing their story was my way of filling a huge hole in my own life and I think that’s why I was so obsessed with it during the writing process.

I’ve written a lot of books (some that have not been published) and I have to say that with THE EDGE OF NEVER, the writing experience was quite different. Of course, I love each of my books and have a sort of attachment to many of the characters that I create, but THE EDGE OF NEVER went well beyond an attachment and felt like so much more than a ‘project’ when I was typing away furiously at the keyboard. This is the first book I’ve ever written so obsessively and so fast. I finished in about six weeks and in that time I unintentionally neglected my plants, forgot to walk my poor dog and pretty much shut out everything around me because I couldn’t think of anything but Camryn and Andrew’s story. I rarely slept in that six weeks. I would dream about scenes. I would wake up several times in the middle of the night and have to write something down that apparently found a way to communicate with me while asleep. And while awake during the day, everything revolved around Camryn and Andrew.

Thanks for having me on your blog!

Addictions: Starbucks every morning, trolling Barnes & Noble’s shelves once a week, detesting winter, shopping flea markets and preparing for the collapse of society as we know it. Do I own a tin foil hat? Maybe. :-)
I was born in Arkansas and have lived here most of my life, except the couple of times when I lived in Pennsylvania. I started my first novel at the age of thirteen and have been writing something ever since. Generally, I love characters in life and on paper. I pay attention to people, especially those whose personalities make them different from the rest of us: the drug addict roaming the Laundromat that talks to himself, the young, inattentive mother in the park with the meanest kid on the playground – (the entire cast of ‘Swamp People’) – characters fascinate me and I hope that it shows in my literary work.

Giveaway: (1) Signed paperback copy of THE EDGE OF NEVER, (1) Kindle or Nook copy, (1) sterling silver custom book pendant necklace $200 value.
