Dance Front Cover SMALL.jpg

What if you wrote a steamy, sexy novel that was so hot, bookstores couldn’t keep it on their shelves? What if you couldn’t tell anyone you wrote it?


A mother of two girls, Cassie works as a nurse in an 

emergency room. Her midlife is stale. Her husband is scratching a seven-year itch, and her teenage daughter is testing her independence. Cassie struggles to juggle life between home and work.


Cassie reads an article about romance novels and how profitable publishing could be if one could spin a good tale. She pens Wild Rose under a pseudonym and is 

surprised when it becomes a huge bestseller. The 

mysterious author is the talk of the town and people are clamoring to know who she is.


Cassie suddenly realizes she can't let anyone know she wrote it.


Unless she went incognito.

“...An over the top, often witty escape into fantasy that manages to convey some realistic poignancy on the road to a satisfying conclusion.”
 -Kirkus Reviews

“ Dance Like You Mean It is a sweetly romantic, often 

poignant glimpse into the life of a woman whose secret dream to write her way out of the doldrums of her everyday life comes true in a spectacular, and unexpected, fashion.  A witty and delicious tribute to the steamy, bodice-ripping novels that are so beloved by readers looking for a fantasy escape.”

 -Kathleen Kent, author of the Edgar Nominated The Burn
