about the author

I am Amy Lynn Garcia, daughter, sister, cousin, mother, nurse, grandma…no..no…call me Mimi I’m too young to be a grandma, writer and friend. We are all something to someone, and I love all the hats I wear in my life. I was born in 1969 which is where I lay blame to my compulsion to write erotica and romance, wink. That makes me…uh…yea 45, no way really? My mind is still very young but not naive I’ve seen a lot and experienced more, you may think I don’t know what’s going on but be assured this Mama knows what’s up! I enjoy creating characters that have something people can relate to, who are real, addictive and intriguing. Love has always been a desire just out of my reach, as it is for many people. I believe that is what draws me into stories with superb happily ever afters. I want to connect with people on that level, let them know they aren’t alone, that love can triumph over all, we all long for that special one that takes our breath away.
My Biography simply put is this, I am a mother of 5 daughters, born and raised in Iowa, and no I don’t see farm animals on a daily basis, just at the state fair once a year. I live in the suburbs, just a mom trying to make it and support her children. Divorced once, and another long term relationship failed as well. I feel that qualifies me to write about relationship pain and disappointment. I worked a million retail jobs, was a receptionist in many hair salons, and attended college off and on for years before I finally settled down and went to college to become a nurse. Doing things the hard way is my specialty, point proven, I waited until I had 5 young daughters, one only 6 weeks old to go back to college. I received a degree in nursing and graduated from Mercy College of Health Sciences. I specialize in antepartum nursing or as I like to call it “The Anti Birthing Unit” where we keep premature babies in utero as long as possible. I’ve always had a calling to help people, even at the age of 5 I created hospitals in my basement and gave my baby dolls shots in the butt. As much as nursing is my career, writing is my passion. Being creative has sparked a fire within me that is now burning out of control, ideas and characters flow from my mind constantly and unfortunately, when I’m driving or mowing the grass with no pen or paper. My ultimate goal when I write is to help my reader feel something, if your heart skips a beat, if you shed a tear, connect with my characters or if you can’t wait for the next in my series, my job has been done.
The release of book 2 in The Two Sides of Me series is due out late November or early December of 2014 on Amazon, watch for it!

There’s nothing like a little murder, mystery, and mayhem to start a book off right! Today I’d like to share the Top Five of my favorite fictitious women to whom MM&M is all in a day’s work:

NYPSD LT. Eve Dallas

Created by the remarkably gifted Nora Roberts (writing as J. D. Robb), Dallas is the finest of New York’s finest – or anywhere else’s finest for that matter, on-planet or off. Smart, honest, wry, tenacious, ferocious, but at times, achingly vulnerable, she is a natural leader and a bulldog of a cop. Eve’s world is gripping and fascinating; set in the near future, the In Death series combines nail-biting suspense, gritty police drama, a crack crime-fighting team’s loyalty and camaraderie, and sizzling romance. Even up to her sealed leather boots in gore, Eve keeps readers coming back for more!

NYPSD Detective Delia Peabody

Originally Eve Dallas’ aide and protégé, over the course of the In Death series Peabody becomes Eve’s partner and devoted friend. Smart, compassionate but tough, insightful, and much better at connecting with people than is Eve, Peabody is often “good cop” to Eve’s “bad cop.” A better team could hardly be imagined. Peabody also provides a welcome bit of whimsy and relatability, but the minute a cocky murder suspect thinks she’s a gullible pushover, she slams the cell door. Hard.

FBI Agent Lacey Sherlock

Author Catherine Coulter’s smart, sexy, savvy Sherlock is the law-enforcement partner and passionate wife of fellow FBI Agent Dillon Savitch, a tough, country-music-loving computer genius. In the FBI Series, they take on some seemingly impossible cases – cases that might have come straight from the X Files. No matter how bizarre and deadly the circumstances, Sherlock keeps her head, her focus, her toughness, and her compassion.

P.I. Mary Jo “Mojo” Sheepshanks

In Deadly Gamble and Deadly Deceptions, author Linda Lael Miller gives lucky readers the wise-cracking, inventive, my-life-is-a-mess P.I. Mojo Sheepshanks. Living over Bad-Ass Bert’s Biker Saloon, Mojo discovers the dearly departed have as many secrets as the living, and they either need her help, or they want her dead. Equipped with her Damn Fool’s Guide to Lucid Dreaming, Mojo’s ready to take on whatever comes at her – from either side of the grave.

Blair Mallory

The delightful creation of author Linda Howard in Drop Dead Gorgeous and To Die For, Blair, who owns and runs the Great Bods fitness gym, is a Southern belle through and through. She’s also tough-minded, hilariously sarcastic, entitled, persistent, courageous, and completely logical in the most illogical way possible. Her significant other, police Detective Wyatt Bloodsworth, finds she is as tough to tame as an entire mob of crooks. When Blair sets out to investigate an attempted murder case – her own attempted murder – neither the cops nor the villains will be safe for long.

To my mind, with these five compelling women characters, mystery, murder, and mayhem were never better!


Dangerous
by Lorrie Farrelly

Dangerously burned-out, ex-LA cop Cam Starrett imagines his new job in a small, central California town will be a haven from the tragedy, grief, and anger that have shattered his heart. His battered soul cries out for peace and quiet and merciful boredom.

Instead - during his very first day in the new town - he fires a gun, delivers an unusual baby, and hauls a passionate young woman into his embrace for a kiss of pure, scorching hunger. Shaken, he's left stunned, perplexed, extremely hot and bothered - but not one bit bored.

Despite her training as a school guidance counselor, Meredith Hayden secretly admits that people - especially men - baffle her. Confused and embarrassed by her reckless abandon in the arms of dangerous-looking Cam Starrett, she resolves to keep him at a distance, tempting and torturing them both all the more.

But when they uncover an escalating pattern of bigotry and violence that threatens the lives of everyone in the community, Cam and Merry face an ordeal that will test not only the limits of their courage and trust, but also the true depth of their passion.
DANGEROUS has been awarded READERS' FAVORITE 5 STARS.



The Guardian's Angel
by Lorrie Farrelly

When nobody knows what to do with a troubled, damaged kid, it's time to call Elizabeth Driscoll. A wary, vulnerable, unusually intuitive young woman, Libby has a knack for helping children that others have given up on.

Certainly nobody knows what to do with Tommy Madden, least of all his fiercely devoted guardian, Seattle Police Detective J.D. McCammon. McCammon believes the autistic little boy witnessed a double murder: his mother and his father, the city's District Attorney. J.D. is determined to help and protect Tommy at all costs, and somehow, find a way to communicate with him.

When Tommy's life is threatened by the corrupt organization that killed his parents, J.D. and Libby take him on a desperate and dangerous flight to safety. They must place their trust in one another to escape a relentless evil that threatens not only their lives, but that of the child they've both come to love.

On the run, Libby and J.D. are tested to the limits of their courage and resolve. They discover an intimate and mystifying bond that will either drive them apart, or become their greatest source of strength and passion.

THE GUARDIAN'S ANGEL has been awarded READERS' FAVORITE 5 STARS.

SHARI'S SCHASM SALE

The Schasm Series

Shari J. Ryan


SALE ENDS FRIDAY (11/14/14)
Bestselling author, Shari J. Ryan, brings readers, The Schasm Series Collection. These books take the reader on a mind-bending adventure through mental drifts, fanatical love, and the effervescent landscape of what lies within the mind’s eye. This series will make you question the reality of all that is real, which might just make you wonder about the validity of your own existence. 
Schasm Book 1: Chloe Valcourt drifts between two worlds: the dark reality of her domineering mother and feeble father and the vivid fantasy of her imagination. With her condition comes the harsh observation of doctors who intend to cure her of it. But a chance encounter with a handsome and vaguely familiar young man in her dream world hints at the possibility of hidden truths—and a life she can’t remember. As her drifts become a greater escape from the cruelty of the real world, Chloe finds herself lost between what is real and what is imagined, questioning her very existence. Can she remain in the lush new imagined landscape to find happiness in a realm of her own invention? Is she doomed to return to the harsh reality of the outside world forever? Or will she become trapped somewhere between the two…unable to return to either? 
Fissure Free Book 2: Author Shari J Ryan reunites the colorful cast of friends and family in Book 2 of the Schasm Series with a powerful tribute to the power of the mind and heart in this romantic, suspenseful, and engaging novel. After nineteen years of suffering with a psychological condition, ethereal Chloe had finally come close to finding her ultimate escape—or, so she thinks on the vibrant streets of Paris. Finally in a relationship with Alex, a man she fell in love with in Schasm, Chloe thinks life is finally coming together. As she battles her own demons, she attempts to repair the damaged man she’s grown to love. But as his clouded past abruptly crashes into their lives and falls heavily upon their budding romance, Chloe must fight to maintain her relationship. Although even when the problems begin to subside, she comes to realize certain things cannot be escaped. Just as Chloe believes she might have sealed the doors of darkness once and for all, new questions, new findings and new inceptions arise. Whether or not Chloe wants to continue forward with the path her life seems to be leading, she quickly learns that any choice she makes will ultimately land her in a place she never knew she was destined to be.

When Fully Fused Book 3: In the third and final book of the Schasm Series, author Shari Ryan takes you on a final journey of the mind. Chloe and Alex together again maintain their composure and romance as they raise their four-year-old son, Sammy. But fairytales are merely stories they read in the nursery at night, for lurking behind each thought is a world out of control like the chaos of a car crash. As life likes to do, everything Chloe firmly believes in twists in the opposite direction. With three paths to choose from she can only choose Left. Right. Or Start Again. All the questions have answers, and the forces of good and evil wage an epic battle solely within the mind, leaving behind the constraints of reality. From time travel to drifts, When Fully Fused is a thrilling ride from start to finish, literally.

He'll have to turn up the heat in order to melt her heart…

Logan Slade made the biggest mistake of his life eight years ago when he left his high school sweetheart at the altar and reported to the military. Now he's returned home and ready to do whatever it takes to win her back. But Trixie Frost isn't the same starry-eyed girl who believed he could do no wrong. Now she's stronger, independent, and more fascinating than any other woman he's ever met.

Trixie has spent the last eight years trying to forget Logan while devoting her life to the quirky town of North Pole, Alaska. She's in a good place, dating a nice man and ready to take the next step in their relationship until Logan walks into her bar and turns her life upside down again.

This sexy, determined, military version of Logan is a bigger threat to her than the boy she'd loved to distraction. She can't let him chip away at the protective wall of ice erected around her heart. Because there's no way she'll be able to put the pieces back a second time.




"I don't want you here," Trixie said.

"Too bad," Logan said. "I'm not leaving."

"Why are you so adamant about that? I know you, Logan. You leave, remember? It's what you're good at."

"Once. I left once. I'm not leaving again."

"Your 'once' was eight years long."

"I know. It took me a while to understand what I really wanted. You are what I want."

"Well, you can't have me. I'm not available."

A chill slid over him. "You married to someone else?"

"I don't have to be with someone to be unavailable," she finished.
