About The Book

School teacher Tisha Jameson flees her Virginia hometown to start afresh in Macon, Georgia. Although she hadn’t planned on falling in love with former pro football player Chase Alton, Chase’s son Thomas is determined to get them together somehow. Before long, the pair come to realize that they are unable to resist one another and Chase will discover what a caring mother figure Tish can be for his son. But when Tish finds out that the danger she thought she’d outrun for good has followed her across state lines, Chase and Tish find out what love really means.


Chase finally got his son away from the computer, and father and son made their way to the front of the room. The men acknowledged each other briefly before Thomas spoke up. “Are you Ms. Jameson’s husband?” he asked pointedly.

“Nah, little man,” Dean laughed. “I’m her brother.” His gaze moved to the boy’s father. “She’s a cool teach, ain’t she?”

Thomas nodded in confirmation. “Yeah. She’s the coolest,” he replied, turning to beam at his dad, whose face indicated he wasn’t quite ready to agree, considering he didn’t know her all that well. “Thank you, Ms. Jameson.” Placing a hand on Thomas’s shoulder, Chase ushered his chatty son out of the room. He raised his hand to tip an imaginary hat before leaving.

“Have a good weekend, guys,” Tisha called after them. She turned to face Dean, scowling at the mischievous face he made at her before grabbing her coat and tote bag. “What?” she exclaimed, innocently running a finger through her hair.

“Umm-hmm. You barely been here a month and already stirring up trouble!” Dean said, the laugh lines around his eyes crinkling. “That man likes you, but he’s big… and dumb. Don’t fall for him.”

1. Besides writing, what else do you like to do?

I love to craft. I knit, crochet, and quilt.

2. What inspired you to become an author?

Books inspired me to become an author. I never was much of a tv watcher, even as a kid. And when I turned ten or so I started spending a lot of my summers in the library. I’d leave with as many books as my arms could carry. Reading turned to poetry, poetry to short stories, short stories to novels.

3. What was your first reaction when your debut novel was published?

I felt like I gave birth, again. LOL

4. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

My husband and I have a vision for our next five years. My writing related goal is to have a virtual bookshelf full of books and to travel more on writing excursions. I’d also love to expand my editing and publishing services.

5. Do you have any new projects that you are currently working on?

I’m writing on a new romantic suspense novel scheduled for release early 2018. I have a contemporary romance novella coming October 9, 2017 called Hidden Desire. And I have a holiday romance appearing in Holidays Ever After coming December 5, 2017.

6. What advice can you give to anyone who wants to become an author?

Do it! And don’t stop learning your craft.

The Bureau requests CIA renegade Marc Fulton’s assistance with sweeping international intelligence to identify the major rebel organizations with finances and stateside connections strong enough to evade criminal prosecution, despite Camille’s objections.

Sparks fly when Marc and Camille meet, their attraction is instant and tense. However, both resolve to focus on the case. But when Camille receives an encrypted memory stick from a murdered co-worker Marc may be the only person she can trust.

Black Diamond is the eagerly anticipated debut novel by Ja’Nese Dixon. True love, like black diamonds, is rare and precious; but when murder and a persistent criminal threaten a frail relationship, can love triumph?

The last thing hostage negotiator Ashe MacAvoy expected was to need a rescue herself, but it’s a game-changer when Detective Chase Weber offers his protection—and his bed.
Ashe MacAvoy is Wilmington PD’s chief hostage negotiator. Using her infamous grace under fire, and the expertise of Detective Chase Weber, she frees a roomful of innocents from three armed captors. But the guy pulling the strings is still out there, and Ashe’s life is in danger. Chase wants to protect her. Can he also shield her from the broken heart at the end of this adrenaline-filled attraction?
Detective Chase Weber doesn’t mix business with pleasure. Well, not anymore. He’s learned his lesson and is happy with the world back on track. Enter Ashe MacAvoy, whose life he’s saved twice in less than twelve hours. Somehow he’s become her guardian angel—a role that’s giving him a devil of a time. She’s a pain in his ass…and a need in his heart. So maybe having the world upended isn’t such a bad thing after all.

Chase pulled into Ashe’s driveway and slid out of the car. Crouching, he sniffed the air and then he was running to the front door, pounding on it, calling her name. He slammed against the locked door with his shoulder once. It didn’t budge.
He slammed against it again, worrying with every blow that he might hit a spark that would ignite the air, laden down with the sickly smell of the additive they piped into natural gas.
Adrenaline pumping, Chase gave himself a few steps and ran at the door. The wood frame cracked under the onslaught of his mass, and he fell into the house. Afraid to turn on the light, he blindly fumbled through the hall. The first room he came to was the bathroom. The second room was her guest room. He finally found her room at the end of the hall.
He ran to the bed, not wanting to see if he was too late. She was lying tucked up in the bed, covered in a cocoon that hid her from sight. Chase pulled back the blanket and checked her pulse with his two forefingers. It was there—weak but present.
He gathered her up in his arms and took a step toward the door, then stopped. Her bedroom had a pair of sliding glass doors that opened to the backyard. Carrying her, he slid the door open and stumbled into the yard. His own breathing was labored now, his lungs protesting at the strain of the adrenaline and the contaminated air.
Spots started to appear before his eyes as Chase made it back to the street. He forced his legs to go faster, just a few more steps.
The blast of the shockwave lifted him off his feet and flung him and Ashe several yards through the air before crashing them down to the asphalt. The force of the blow knocked him dizzy, but he stayed conscious. He turned to see Ashe’s house in flames. A scream came from her neighbor’s house and then a woman was running toward him, a cell phone in her hand.
“I’m calling the police,” the woman called as she ran. “Don’t worry, I have a phone.”
Chase shook his head, cradling Ashe in his arms. She moaned, groggy, coming around. He tried to collect his thoughts. His own brain was still hazy and he felt like someone had sucker punched him in the back of the neck. Twice.
“What happened?” Ashe’s voice was shaky, the words slurred. “How did I get here?”
She looked up at Chase, her face shadowed. The fire caught highlights in her hair, now and then sparking glints in her gray eyes.
He couldn’t help himself. He clasped her to him, bending his face toward her, kissing her as deep and hard as he could.

Book 1: A Love Story 

A_Love_Story_Done - Copy

Buy Link (Amazon):


The quiet laid back single mother wanted more. She enjoyed the PTA meetings, the soccer games with her son, hanging out with her sisters and an occasional outing with her girlfriend. But the thirty-three year old African American nurse craved something she had never had before; a loving and long-lasting relationship with a man.

Lydia met Jerome, an educated white-collar worker with a body like a construction worker–a man with morals and beliefs so close to hers it seemed unbelievable.

After he holds her tightly in his muscular arms and takes her to heaven as they kiss, will fear of Jerome’s past get in their way? Or has Lydia finally met the-one?


     I felt a twinge of nervousness run through my body when the Los Angeles Crenshaw district address matched the one I held in my hand. I parked the car and did one last check on my hair and makeup in the rearview mirror. I wondered if I needed more lipstick.

     I got out and told myself, maybe I shouldn’t be here. And why did I wear this dress? I hope he doesn’t take it as a come-on.

     After ringing the doorbell, around five seconds later the door opened. BOING …! was the feeling that hit me as I laid eyes on him again. Something about him sent vibrations through me as our eyes met.

     “Hello Lydia. Glad you could make it.”


     “Would you like to come in—maybe use the restroom, or is there anything I can get you? Would you like something to drink before we go? I have soda…juice.” He seemed nervous, also.

     “No. I’m fine… Thank you.”

     “Are you sure?”


     “Okay.” He stepped out onto his porch next to me, smiled and proceeded to lock his door. I took a breath and moved over some, because standing that close to him was uncomfortably stimulating. Plus, the aroma of his cologne and how nicely he was dressed was nearly intoxicating. I knew that the just being friends idea was in trouble.

     “You didn’t have any trouble, did you…finding my address?”

     “Came right to it.”

     “That’s good to know. So, I guess I give good directions, huh?”

     I looked at his lips and wondered how good he kissed.  “Very good directions.”

     “Good to hear that.” He stood there briefly, gazing at me. I found myself gazing back into his eyes until he finally said, “Well, the car’s right over here.” He walked beside me to the passenger side of the car. He grabbed the door handle and then hesitated. “It’s very good to see you again.” He looked me up and down as I stood in my coat. He couldn’t see any parts of me, except my face, hair and the lower portion of my calves. “You look very lovely.”

     “Thank you.” I tried not to look so dreamy-eyed as we looked into each other’s eyes again.

     “Oh,” Jerome said, before proceeding to open the door. He held it until I slid inside.

     I took a breath. You have to get a grip, girl. You’re not supposed to get involved, remember? I watched Jerome walk around to the driver’s side of the car. He took off the long brown overcoat that he was wearing and laid it across the back seat; then he fumbled with his tie as he slid inside the car.

     He backed his car out of the driveway, glancing off and on at me. “There’s someplace special I’d like to take you.”


     “Um hum, I think you’ll like it.” He smiled. “As a matter of fact, I’m sure you will.”

     “Well, don’t keep me waiting. Who is he?”

     She sat her glass down. “First, I must tell you that he’s gorgeous.”

     I smiled. “Yeah?”

     “Ummm. He’s tall, bald and dark; gorgeous skin.”

    My body stiffened. It couldn’t be Jerome. I tried hiding my fear as the description of Vernadine’s new friend was very similar to Jerome’s. “Really?”

     “Got a body, too, girl. Whew.”

     She suddenly reached across the table and tapped my hand as if she just remembered something extra. She cocked her head to one side with a smile. “And he’s very intelligent.”

     Jerome? I paused, taking in a breath and nearly holding it. “A body and intelligence… Nice.” I forced a smile. There are at least five million people living in Los Angeles. Could it really be Jerome that she’s talking about? After all they live within a few miles of each other, here in L.A.

      The waiter returned with Vernadine’s salad and placed it in front of her. He placed a bowl of delicious looking soup in front of me. We both thanked him before he turned to leave.

     I picked up a spoon and began stirring my soup. “Uh…what…what does your friend do?”

     Vernadine picked up a forkful of her salad. “He’s a financial uh…a financial… I don’t remember his exact title. I don’t want to get it wrong. I know it has something to do with the financial department at his job.”

     Jerome is a financial analyst. I cleared my throat. “Oh.” I began perspiring all over.

     She held up one finger. “I have a selfie of the two of us together. I couldn’t resist.”

     A jolt passed through me as she picked up her large red purse. She glanced up at me, staring. “You’re sweating. Are you alright?”

     “Uh… It’s just a little warm in here, to me at least.”

     “You think so?”

     I nodded.


I’m a native Californian, where I still live with my husband. I worked as a nurse for years. Writing was something I never imagined doing. But my husband insisted that I give it a try because every incident I encountered over the years turned into a story. So here I am, having fun creating stories.

I also love reading, movies and spending time with family.
