Chloe Quinn was born in Northern California right in the heart of what is known as the Silicon Valley. There she grew up with her younger sister Alex.

She still currently lives in California a few miles away from the beautifully eclectic city of San Francisco.
Chloe graduated from a high school located in the south part of San Jose. Chloe graduated from a high school located in the south part of San Jose. After high school, Chloe decided to attend a junior college where she graduated with her AA in Humanities. She then went on to attend UC Riverside where she majored in Communication and Behavioral Studies.
One thing Chloe enjoyed while growing up was volunteering at her local hospital. During her life she continued to be in service to others. She went on several missions over the years. On these trips she found herself, along with the group she went with, building structures for children in less fortune countries in order for them to be able to receive an education, get medical attention, and attend a house of worship, among other things.
Chloe loves to write. This love was sparked for her during her tender years as a child from hearing bedtime stories at night. She loved how someone took the time to sit down to write the dramatic tales filled with brave heroes and strong heroines. She is thrilled she is able to have the privilege of writing stories that she hopes people will enjoy and ignite their love for reading like the stories Chloe heard when she was a child did for her.

A.C. Melody is a hybrid author of Erotic Romance and all its savory sub-genres. Confessed javaholic, introverted geeky girl with a twisted sense of humor and a wretched muse. She has a weakness for hard ass Alphas and the strong women who capture their hearts, without damaging their rough edges.
A lifetime lover of fairytales, myths, legends, and ancient pantheons, A.C. spends more time researching than writing. Her biggest goal is to provide new, captivating angles on old, favorite tales with enticing twists and characters that redefine preset expectations.
She’s 100% guilty of placing all her money on the underdogs, anti-heroes and shameless whores.
A.C. Melody loves interacting with her fans and fellow authors. She can be reached at email@example.com or on any of the following media sites:
Lexi Miles was born in northern California. Lexi lived in various places in California and Nevada (Las Vegas and Reno). Tropical warm spots and out of the way ranches are Lexi’s favorite escapes. She has one sister, Cat. Presently she resides in California and is a proud pup mom of two mischievous Yorkies. They are handfuls and most definitely light up her life!
Cultivation of Lexi’s writing is attributed to a lot of reading, variety of writingcontests, her college studies in communication, and her association and mentoring from professors, published authors, and editors. In addition, she credits the tool of LIFE in general as one of the key factors in the development of her writing. Lexi personally edited and consulted for various published novels as well.
Lexi embraces who she is and is a huge fan of positivity; accordingly, she loves to giggle and make others smiles as often as she can. Lexi, has a deep interest in personal growth and is always open to learning new things that challenge her. On her off-time, she adores the chance to binge watch/read a good romance, mystery, suspense, or life stories in general. Whenever possible, Lexi tries to help others achieve their goals in life. Lexi strongly believes that life is an incredible gift and is to be enjoyed!
Lexi fell in LOVE with writing–head over heels in love–from the time that she could first hold a pen and she just never stopped falling. Lexi loves writing romance; she believes there is something extraordinary about the magic of love shared by a couple. Lexi is thrilled to pen that beauty of love on paper!
D.E. Haggerty is actually just plain old Dena, but she thinks using initials makes her sound sophisticated and maybe even grown up.
She was born and raised in the U.S. but considers herself a Dutchie and not only because it sounds way cooler
After a stint in the U.S. Army, she escaped the US to join her husband in Holland. She fled Holland over ten years ago when she couldn’t stand the idea of being a lawyer for one single second more.
Turns out Bed & Breakfast owner in Germany didn’t do it for her either. When the hubby got a job in Istanbul, she jumped ship and decided to give this whole writer thing a go. She’s now back in Holland, which she considers home.
Didi Oviatt is an intuitive soul. She’s a wife and mother first, with one son and one daughter.
Her thirst to write was developed at an early age, and she never looked back. After digging down deep and getting in touch with her literary self, she’s writing mystery/thrillers like Search For Maylee, Justice for Belle, Aggravated Momentum, The Stix, New Age Lamians (a trilogy to be), and more, along with a six- piece short story collection called the Time Wasters.
She’s also collaborated with Kim Knight in an ongoing interactive short story anthology The Suspenseful Collection.
When Didi doesn’t have her nose buried in a book, she can be found enjoying a laid-back outdoorsy lifestyle. Time spent sleeping under the stars, hiking, fishing, and ATVing the back roads of beautiful mountain trails, and sun-bathing in the desert heat play an important part of her day to day lifestyle.
After writing as a hobby for most of her life, at the urging of a good friend, Felicia took on the challenge of NaNoWriMo in 2015, writing what would become her first published work, In the Best Interest of the Child. It was released in the fall of 2016. Free, a Novella, which began as a three-installment series on her website, was published as a short story in May 2017.
Currently working on projects in several genres, Felicia plans to release book 2 of In the Best Interest of the Child – Family Matters, as well as anthologies of her suspense and women’s fiction short stories in 2020.
A long-time blogger, she also features books by indie authors daily on her blog, Nesie’s Place.
Felicia lost her husband of nearly 36 years of May of 2019, and is a strong advocate and supporter of the National Kidney Foundation. She has three adult children, four grand-pups, and as one of nine children, she has too much extended family to even go into!
In her free time-when not reading-Felicia sews and enjoys experimenting with new dishes in the kitchen. She always has a cup of robust coffee and far too many pun jokes nearby.
Custom Fit is Book One in the Holiday Fever Series
I found a new author to stalk … I mean follow.
I can’t wait for Lexi Miles next book. I wonder if it will involve characters from Custom Fit or if it will start fresh with a new set of people to fall in love with. It might since this is a stand alone with a happy ending. I believe this is her debut novel and as debuts go this was a good one.
Lexi starts the story with the lovely Sunny landing her dream job. Or maybe her favorite fantasy to dream about. Sunny is a stylist and has been sent to dress the one and only Striker. Sunny has seen all of Strikers movies, multiple times but feels she can separate her movie star crush from her day job. Sunny and Striker instantly get along and communicate easily with each other.
A few obstacles present themselves for Sunny. She is tormented and vexed by a member of Strikers camp and then is belittled by a member of her own. Will it all work out? Can she keep her crush from growing into an affection?
I won’t go into too much details about the part I dislike in an attempt to keep my review spoiler free. But there are several characters that I dislike and their actions as well. You’ll know who I’m talking about as soon as they appear in the book.
Next time you’re trying to pick a book to read I suggests you give this author a shot. Happy endings and stand alones are such a nice way to end a stressful day.

#teasertues might be getting an addition to the line up
I have a few blogs I follow of writers I find incredibly talented. I think I’ll start sharing their work with you on Tuesdays.
In the past I have shared excerpts from my writing but too much of the same can get monotonous so I refrain from sharing every time I make major changes. Keep that in mind when you look at Out of the Blue any time I share from that work in progress. I may have it on here ten times (I don’t know the exact number.) but those are the polished version of three or four edits.
I also share websites, bio’s or info pages of people that have really helped me along on my path. People who have taken me under their wing in one way or another.
I will continue to do both of these but I want to share your work in progress links. I have a few in mind I have read to get my ReBlog Train moving. Leave you link in the comments and I will check it out.
I can’t always blog. But I like to share things I think are worth sharing and that you’ll enjoy when I can’t talk about my writing with you.
As a child, I entertained myself for hours playing pretend, but not with dolls and such. I created stories and pictured them in my mind, sometimes even acted them out, my well preserved secret until now. I spent years after leaving school trying to figure out my niche. Not being a literary enthusiast, I never thought my childhood pastime would lead in this direction.
If you have a chance go over to SOOP and give this lady your vote.
