Nothing good comes from living in the Devil’s swamp.

Willow Bell thinks moving to the Okefenokee area isn’t half bad, but nothing prepares her for what awaits in the shadows of the bog.

Girls are showing up dead in the swamp. And she could be next.

Everyone warns Willow to stay away from Beau Cadwell—the bad boy at the top of their suspect list as the serial killer tormenting the small town.

But beneath his wicked, depthless eyes, there’s something else that draws Willow to him.

When yet another girl he knew dies, though, Willow questions whether she can trust her instincts…or if they’re leading to her own death.

Describe your book in 140 characters or less (like a Tweet)

A girl from the deep swamps falls for the town rebel, who may or may not be a liar, but when the dead bodies of girls from their school are discovered, she’s left to wonder if lying is his only flaw.


What was your inspiration for writing this book?  Was it in a dream? A thought while taking a walk?

I spent half of my time growing up in Georgia, and the other half in Florida, where there was no shortage of swampy waters and gators and southern charm. I spent most of that time reading thrillers and imagining the things that could go wrong in such an eerie setting. I drew on this to crate the background scenery, then added a complicated boy who likes to talk in riddles, a curious, feisty girl, and a string of shadowy murders.


Tell us about the main character(s).

Willow Bell is a feisty, curious girl who moves to Waycross, Georgia—a small town where everyone knows everyone—to an old house on the edge of the swamp. She meets a strange guy next door, Beau Cadwell, and begins to slowly, carefully, unravel the secrets of his past.


Beau Cadwell lives in the deep swamp. He’s known around town for being elusive, but at the same time, a bad boy who tends to break hearts. He’s an exceptionally good liar, but when girls he’s connected to start showing up dead in the swamp, he becomes the number one suspect.



Do you have a favorite quote or specific part in the book that you really love?

I always love the part of a novel where the characters first meet. It’s the beginning of their story and bond. In Wicked Charm, it goes like this:

“Hi,” she says, opening her book.

“Willow.” I say her name, testing it in my mouth.

Her dark hair brushes her desk and hides part of her face. But I already know she’s beautiful.

“Beau,” she says in a sweet tone. “I don’t think we’re supposed to be friends.”

“I suppose not.”

Her eyes are darker than anything I’ve ever seen. They’re the type of dark that takes over the swamp after the sun falls from the sky. I like my name on her lips. I like her tongue on her lips. I’d probably like my tongue on her lips, too.

“You are trouble, after all, I hear.” But she doesn’t say it like she’s scared of trouble.

“Then we definitely shouldn’t be friends.” I don’t mean a word of it.

“Okay.” Her eyes leave mine.

“Do you want to be friends anyway?” I ask.

She lets her eyes find their way back to me. “Okay.”

And just like that I have an in with the new girl, Willow Bell.


Was there a specific part in the book that you had an especially difficult time writing?  If so, why?

I love the setting—that’s one of my favorite aspects of the book. I’m really into sensory details written in a lyrical way. It helps me to better visualize the entire story. And I adore the romance! But for me, the hardest part is creating a character with a mean streak. I, of course, would prefer kind characters, but life doesn’t always give you that, and I’m a firm believer that books shouldn’t either. They should be real and relatable.


What sort of projects do you have going on right now.  Any new books coming out?

I’m currently in the middle of writing a novel set in a small town where nothing is as it seems and secrets are the most guarded possessions. There’s a troublemaker, a rule follower, and a past that could ruin them both.


It was great having you on the blog today!  We hope you’ll decide to stop by again someday, and we wish you much success!!

Thank you for having me and allowing me to share my new novel, Wicked Charm, with you! I hope you love it as much as I do. :)
