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.

Title: Negotiating Her Release
Author: Becca A . Miles
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 2, 2017
Hi everyone! I’m excited to do an author spotlight on Olivia Williams Ball! Her series, Lydia & Jerome, is a sweet and touching series of two individuals finding love again and keeping that love alive. Make sure to 1-Click these great reads and enjoy the start of a wonderful romance between Lydia and Jerome! 🙂
Book 1: A Love Story
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.”
Book 2: Twists and Turns
Buy Link (Amazon):
Love is complicated. Add in sordid pasts, pledges of celibacy, and children and you make it even more so. But it’s that turmoil – that uncertainty – that also makes love exciting. What is true in life is the same in fiction. Lydia, a single mom to a young boy, finds the love of her life in Jerome, a recovering addict with a heart of gold.

Enter Phillip, the father of Lydia’s child.

Will Lydia be able to repair her relationship with Jerome? Will she reconcile with her ex-love Phillip? Is happiness to be found living alone? Read Twists and Turns and find out!
“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’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.
