Blurb:
Filled with the dreams of youth, and surrounded by the love of her family and friends, Payton Martin’s world was simple. When someone closest to her is cruelly betrayed and unjustly sent away, life afterwards proves never to be the same for everyone involved, beginning a series of events beyond her control. Somehow, through the years that follow, Payton manages to deal with the heartache of loss and rejection, all while balancing her new situation, and becoming her own woman. 

Finally settled into a life that she could only once imagine, Payton is content; especially when the promise of love is presented by someone she admires and trusts. Nothing ever goes to plan, though. Once again she is faced with surviving circumstances, and choices others make on her behalf. This time, they ultimately take her across the ocean, to settle in a harsh new land.

Teaser:

“Oh
thank you,” I said again, throwing myself over Nash to embrace William in a big
hug. My hair flew into his eyes and he laughed, trying to see through the dark
brown mass. I often took it out of its braid when we played down by the lake,
and today was no exception. He had to push it away from his face before he could
talk.
“Well,
now I know,” he finally said.
“Know
what?” I asked, pulling out of his arms, still beaming.
“How
to get a hug from you?” he said with a chuckle and a wink.

Teaser #2

“Payton, just promise me one
thing, and that will be all that I ask you to do for me.” My heart stilled, in
fear of what Ashleigh would ask of me. Would she ask me to marry her brother to
save him the heart ache she feels? I stared at her, unblinking. A true friend
should say, ‘Yes, I’ll do anything, just say the word’, but I didn’t. I sat
there thinking of myself, while my friend clearly needed me to say something; a
friend who has been there for me, without asking anything from me
before.

“Anything, Ashleigh, just name
it,” I said, resolved.

“Make the right decision, Payt,
and do it soon. I couldn’t bear to see William suffer, as I do.” I looked to my
feet, but then slipped to the floor in front of Ashleigh, kneeling before her. I
reached for her petite hands and took them in mine.

“Ashleigh, I promise.” I meant
it.

 

Bio:
I was born in Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia, and raised in Alice Springs (the very center of the country). I have always loved reading and telling “tall tales” and wrote poetry all the time. My greatest influence was my grandpa Majid who kept us entertained all the time with his stories, music and passion for writing. 
I didn’t tell anyone I wrote when I started because I was to shy, I have no idea why I was like that. I don’t care now, I have stories to tell and I want to share them. I am not, and never will profess to be an awesome writer, but I will try to entertain, while bringing to life the history of my country, one page at a time.
