Ciara lives in Southern California with her husband, who she met in a comedy improv troupe, four funny fantastic children and a magical odd eyed cat. She enjoys reading, traveling, thrifting, crafting, and taking delicious naps on cruise ships. She’s enjoyed a diverse career as a blogger, photographer, designer, tv/film producer, marketing pro and tech founder/CEO.
But she’s also ghostwritten notes from the tooth fairy on numerous occasions, edited her friend’s dating profiles, left some pretty entertaining Yelp reviews and written hundreds of stories. Given the choice between pouring over data and impersonating a winged creature with a molar fetish, she’d choose storytelling every time.

Rome for The Holidays
It’s only for the week, then they’ll go their own separate ways.
Dumped and alone for the holidays, Emily needs to escape. She’ll even interview smug self-help guru Blaze Smith, if it gets her a free trip to Italy.
Pretending to be in love is simple. Having real feelings about your make-believe romance is complicated.
Can you get a second chance at first love?
Chelsea’s backstage crush on her older brother’s best friend was an epic, embarrassing fiasco that landed her in the ER. Once upon a time she thought that Dean Riley was the man of her dreams. But she was wrong. She was just a kid, and he rode over her heart on his way out of town.
She’d rather break a leg than risk her heart again.
The Princess and the Paparazzi
It’s a secret sister act when these “twins” swap lives.
Everyone’s getting a happy ending except for beloved barista Kenna. She’s sick of third-wheeling it and being left behind.
So when her celebrity doppelganger begs her to swap lives and put up with being pampered in a gorgeous mansion alongside America’s hottest superhero? It’s an offer she can’t refuse.
