The Treacherous Tide and the Stubborn Sandcastle

To fight for love is to fight for air. Both are necessary, and there is no life without either. A story of lasting love and the powerful forces working to tear it apart. In a world where love seems more and more unattainable, it only makes sense to fight for it when you have it. Nevertheless, life will not give you such a precious gift without shedding blood, sweat and tears. This short story follows a gentleman as he does all in his power to maintain the love he has cherished for as long as he can remember.

Meet C.J. Lingzero

I’m not quite sure the genre I fit into, but I find that where I write significantly influences the story’s mood and how it unfolds. I wrote my most recent book freehand, and while understanding and editing my hurried scribbles was a nightmare, I loved writing without a filter and letting the story tell itself. My writing process: I start with an idea and do little to no planning unless an idea comes to me that I must fit in somehow. I love exploring how different characters would uniquely handle situations, and I hope my characters feel real because of that. While perhaps not the best time to get into writing, given the artificial competition churning out hundreds of books a day, I have found something special in writing that I wish I had found years ago. I’m still learning to spin a yarn, but I hope my improvement is evident from book to book. These are my stories, my filtering of the world around me into fiction, and I hope you enjoy them.

Heart Wreck

Two damaged hearts. One tropical vacation. That’s where our story starts… Four years ago, a tragedy left me shattered, and my life has sucked since. So, when a guy I met online suggested we meet in Hawaii for a first date, I agreed to go. It sounded like an exciting adventure. But upon arriving, my date said he couldn’t make it. As an apology, he paid for my room and said to enjoy the resort on him. Though a nice offer, it meant I’d experience paradise alone. Or would I? Somehow, I’ve met someone interesting. Cillian is a handsome and mysterious fellow resort guest. He’s also on his own for the week. I’m drawn in by the questions he asks and how he listens and wants to learn about my life. Though I like him, I sense something has Cillian stuck in his past, giving him reservations about me. Can I see what’s happening between us in just six days? I’ll soon find out…

Meet Melinda Hazen

I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. I have a B.S. in family studies with an emphasis in child development. For most of my life, I’ve worked with students of all ages, from pre-k through high school. Photography, genealogy (especially helping adoptees find their birth parents), and Betsey Johnson accessories are a few of my many interests. Work on my novels has been done in my spare time—often late into the night. I enjoy writing romance because I can create the perfect couple who are striving to achieve their happily ever after. Everyone loves to be in love. And, to put it simply, I write books I want to read. My mornings always begin with a homemade iced latte. The remainders of my weekdays are spent either substitute teaching, going out to lunch, or working on my novels. My weekends are spent at soccer fields of varying location (I’m a soccer mom and love it), listening to psychological thrillers while on road trips, and binge-watching shows with the love of my life. Disneyland will forever be my favorite place on Earth and has provided many of my best memories with my son.
