Chase Excerpt
Introduction: Chase was a difficult character to write because I wanted him to be a true good guy. I wanted him to have a cocky attitude and an immature temper, but I wanted him to be a real man and step up for his responsibilities. It was hard to find that balance. In this scene, Chase wants Quinn, but can’t really admit why yet. We see how he is beginning to falter from his old ways and start to grow up.
Walking away from Amy, I grabbed my script out of my back pocket. I flipped through the pages to look at my lines. Up next was a scene with Ginger. We didn’t have too many scenes together, so this would be the perfect opportunity to phish for information.
“Another intern?” Tucker came up and stood beside me. I looked up from my script. “Dude, you’re my idol!”
“You’ll get bored of it eventually,” I told him. Tucker had only been in show business for a few months.
“I highly doubt it. Money, fame, and girls. Who could ask for anything more?”
He sounded just like me when I was younger.
“It isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. The girls all turn out to be the same, you eventually buy everything you want, and fame comes with a price.”
“You okay? I’ve never heard you talk like that.”
Where is all of this coming from? Just last week, I would never have complained.
“I’m fine. I don’t know…maybe it’s the paparazzi? They’ve been hounding me since my new movie announcement.”
“Come on guys, let’s get this wrapped up!” someone with a speaker yelled. I threw my script in my chair and made my way to the set. I sat down on the couch and pretended to be reading a magazine. I glanced up as Ginger sat down next to me. We didn’t have any lines in this scene; we were only part of the background. The director yelled action and the room silenced. I loved acting. It was my passion. I tried to give the other actors the respect they deserved, but I couldn’t wait any longer. I leaned in close to Ginger so that no one else could hear.
“Why won’t Quinn return my calls?”
Ginger straightened up, annoyed that I was asking her this in the middle of a scene.
“I dunno. What exactly happened between you two anyway?” she hissed. Quinn hadn’t told her about our night. Interesting, I thought girls talked about that type of stuff.
“Nothing happened, but I really wanted to see her again.” My eyes darted around the room to make sure no one was paying attention to us. 
“Has she said anything about me?”
“I thought you didn’t date?”
“Says who?”
“Everyone.”
“It’s not like I want to marry her or anything, Jeez.”
She responded with a small huff before speaking.
“What’s going on with you and the blonde intern?”
“Nothing serious,” I told her. Maybe word would get back to Quinn that I’d moved on. She’d know what she missed out on.
“I saw you flirting with her. She’s much better suited to you than Quinn will ever be.”
“How do you know what Quinn needs?”
“Can we talk about this later, please? Quinn isn’t in any position to be dating right now.”
I was a bit disappointed but had my answer. Ginger had all but said Quinn was with someone else. Too bad that only made me want her more.
“Cut! Who the fuck is talking on set?”




The Last Thing

Plagued by past mistakes in both love and life, Quinn Bardot is in a bad place. With nowhere else to turn, she escapes to LA clinging to the promise of a fresh start. 

Chase Crowley is known for being selfish and unbelievably persistent. All he's ever wanted is to become a successful actor. But now that he is about to have it all, he finds that something is still missing. Money and fame isn't what he expected.

After a fervent encounter, the two of them are thrown into a situation that neither is prepared for. Can Quinn extinguish her fears and let Chase in? Can Chase learn to put someone else's needs before his own?

The Last Thing is a novel all about love, Hollywood, and accepting what life throws at you even if it is the last thing you want.

The One Thing 
When everything falls apart, he's the one thing that holds me together.

Ginger Teague may seem like your typical Hollywood actress with the famous boyfriend, designer clothes, money, and hit TV show, but constantly being in the public eye has its downside.
People seem more interested in her chaotic relationship with her on again/ off again boyfriend than her acting career,and Ginger isn't dealing with her new found fame in a way she always envisioned. She masks her unhappiness with too many parties and an unhealthy habit of binge drinking. As much as she wants love, men find her as a pretty amusement, not the type of girl you take home to mom and dad.
When she meets Caspian Norwood, they quickly begin a regimen of flirty emails.
He's a struggling musician that doesn't quite fit her idea of the perfect boyfriend.
He's older, mysterious, cultured, knows exactly what to say and do in all the right situations, and Ginger can't help falling for him. But the world is against them, pushing them apart, and it's beginning to feel as if they are only meant to be friends.
