Biography

I started writing back in Dec of 2009 after I saw an interview with Stephenie Meyers. She told Oprah that she always had stories in her head and that struck a chord with me. Whenever I drive, I have all kinds of stories circulating in my mind. Generally, I am the star of this story and many wacky things happen. Of course, I make the story quite complimentary and beneficial to me. I guess you could say Meyers channeled my head case into a novel.

I am first a wife and a mother, as well as a restauranteur and a caterer. Writing is my last profession and a late-found one. I have a B.A. and an M.Ed from UCLA (yes, just like Emily from Indelible Love) and taught 1st grade for four years till I had my first child, a son. Two years later, I had my daughter and the two kids ran my life till they both started school. My husband and I opened a restaurant in LA when we first got married and have been in the food service industry for almost 17 years.

I think I’ve always been a foodie at heart and though it sounds strange, loving food did not have anything to do with opening up a restaurant. That was all my husband’s idea. I didn’t even know I could cook till I got married. And then I discovered, I love cooking! I love everything related to food. Eating, first, cooking second, cleaning a definite last. I could do without the cleaning from the prep work and the mound of dishes created after a meal. But, that’s a whole other blog in and of itself. Whenever we plan a family trip, and especially when my husband and I go on a couple’s trip, it’s based around what we want to eat, or which restaurants we want to visit. Hubby and I did a trip to Austin one summer just to eat BBQ. The trip to Rome was for pasta, Tokyo was for ramen and sushi, and in Paris, we gorged on treats from all the beautiful patisseries. The two best meals of my life were at Taillevent and Joel Robuchon in Paris. All of these places and restaurants sound familiar? :) NYC is our favorite city (and yes, Emily’s favorite city as well) for dining. But… I digress.

Even with the crazy schedule, I hope to keep writing. Indelible Love - Emily's Story and Indelible Love - Jake's Story were my first two attempts at writing. Entwined, my third novel, as well as Indelible Lovin' - Max & Jane's Story Vol. 1 & 2 have also been self-published on Amazon, Smashwords, iBooks, Nook, and Kobo. I am currently working on another story titled, Unlikely Attraction, as well as a new Indelible Lovin' blog. This can be read for free on my website every Monday and Thursday starting Dec. 2013.

Thank you for taking an interest in my writing and I am truly humbled and grateful for the outpouring of love Indelible Love has received. Check back for updates on my writings, travels, and everything Reid/Taylor/Davis.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Los Angeles and have always loved reading. I never wrote anything outside of school papers until my 39th birthday. I got the impetus to start and here I am, writing my fifth story.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book, Unlikely Attraction developed while I was writing Max & Jane's blogs. When I first created Laney (in Emily's Story), I never thought I'd bring her back as a character. But as I started dreaming up Donovan Taylor, I knew he needed a woman who would throw him off his sky-high pedestal and Laney was the perfect fit.

This story is told in three parts by Laney, herself. The first phase is called, Mo(u)rning. This begins with a nine-year-old Laney who meets Donovan for the first time and falls in "love." This story also follows the timeline of Max & Jane's blog, but with so much more story line than Jane ever knew was happening. The next phase of her life is told in (New) Day. Here, Laney finds her independence in London and meets a truly sweet English boy. She explores her first relationship with this boy and discovers that life without Donovan is bearable. But of course, as all love stories go, the hero must come back to win the heroine's heart. In the last phase, (K)Night, Donovan comes in as Laney's knight in shining armor, but winning over this once starry-eyed girl is not as easy as he thought it would be.
