The Heroes of Burnheart – Captain Spencer

Introducing one of my favorite sub-characters from my up coming novel, “The Burnheart Redemption”, the one and only Captain Spencer. This dashing young captain learned early in life how to command and gain respect, yet maintain his sense of humor and wit. He is a loyal employee to the Garrow’s trading company and plays an important role in the rescue of Phillip during hi run in with pirates. Not only can Spencer  captain a ship, but his skill with a sword and pistol proves useful in the recovery of Phillip Garrow.

The Heroes of Burnheart – The men from my upcoming novel “The Burnheart Redemption”

ADAM GARROW

Adam Garrow is determined, steadfast, and known to make a show of things. Raised as the son of Lord, he is a gentleman and honest worker. But after discovering the truth of his lineage, Adam embarks on a six-year journey to redefine his life’s purpose. And on the day of his return, fate allows him to cross paths with the lovely and kind Solana Rosenlund.

But when tragedy strikes, Solana is caught in the crossfire of an unseen force threatening to destroy the Garrow family legacy. With the help of his brother, Phillip, and loyal friend, Ian, they fight to keep each other alive and ultimately regain everything they lost.

All Adam has to his name is the Burnheart estate his father left him before he died. Though the house is condemned to ruins, he chooses to find redemption by rebuilding the foundation, as well as his relationships. One of which, he hopes to rebuild with Solana.

PHILLIP GARROW

Phillip Garrow is honorable, strong, and known to take action when leadership is needed. As the sole inheritor of his father’s business and estate of Fairbrooke, he steps into his shoes to continue the Garrow legacy. Along the way, he quite literally runs into the enchanting Iris Westmont; the youngest daughter of a well-known horse breeder. They soon fall completely in love with plans to marry.

But when a mysterious villain attempts to off Phillip entirely, he requires the help of his brother, Adam, and loyal friend, Ian, to bring him back from danger.

With only Burnheart to return to, Phillip is determined to keep his claim of Fairbrooke, discover who this villain is once and for all, and find his way back to the love of his life.

 

IAN O’CONNOR

Ian O’Connor is a charming Irishman, resilient, and stubborn enough to see every plan through. As Cedric Westmont’s top horse trainer, he has a respectable job, and is close friends with his eldest daughter, Abigail. Though she’s above his station, Ian is enamored by her beauty and kindness; and the two have an unspoken flirtation that must be kept hidden from everyone.

But Ian is no longer welcome when he is blindfolded and attacked by men who question his honorable intentions, and despise his Irish heritage.

Relying on the help of Adam and Phillip Garrow, he returns the favor by risking his own life on their behalf, and seeking justice where it is needed. In the end, he is resigned to let go of Abigail entirely, but fate usually has a way of bringing hearts back together.

My Many Faces

It’s no secret that I love to play dress up. Putting on makeup, a wig, a costume, fancy clothes, or assuming a  new identity altogether is fun for me. Of course it isn’t easy when I have a tight budget. I mean straight up dollar store makeup budget. But I get by with a few special purchases every now and then. Here’s some of my favorite looks during the past few years.

Ariel – “The Little Mermaid”

(Wig bought online, bow I made out of ribbon, clothes bought from a secondhand store – sewn together myself, and makeup bought from walmart)

Harley Quinn – “Suicide Squad”

(White foundation bought online, hair colored by crayola markers, tattoo I painted on, shirt bought from hot topic and makeup from Walmart)

Jessica Rabbit – “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?”

(Wig and gloves bought online, and makeup from walmart)

Me – Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos)

(White foundation I already owned, dollar store eyeliner, acrylic paint, and Walmart makeup)

Me – Unicorn Awesomeness

(Walmart makeup, dollar store sparkly eye shadow, and crayola markers for my hair)

Me – Just me really liking my makeup that day

(Dollar store sparkly eye shadow, and black lipstick from Kat Von D makeup collection)

Words On The Rocks

As a Mormon millennial, and a young single adult, the singles ward can be an intimidating place. With the talented Rockford Lines, we give you the survival guide to the world of DATING.

 

Does everyone remember my first post, “Do The Creep”? Well it was actually direct response to this guy! He had posted a video sharing his opinion, and we banded together to talk about the creepers in the world from both male and female perspectives.

 

FUN FACTS:

  • We came up with the idea of the show on a group hiking trip.
  • During the long drive to the trail, we figured out we had a lot to talk about and both wanted to start a web series.
  • It took us an hour to figure out our background, camera placement, lighting, and to come up with what we were going to say.
  • The title is based on Rockford’s name if you haven’t guessed already.
  • The intro was my idea, and Rockford geniusly recorded the music for it.
  • I roped in Rockford’s brother to hold the Sprite bottle in intro.
  • Everything we say isn’t scripted, nor do we know what the other person is going to say next. We pretty much lay out a topic and start talking.
  • Rockford and I met a year ago and we still attend the same singles ward.
  • No, we are not dating.
  • Rockford did all the cutting and editing himself.
  • His full name is Ruskin Rockford Lines IV. But he strongly prefers Rockford.
  • Only because some have asked…yes, this is my natural hair color. I’ve never dyed it.

 

Cheers to you, XO
