I have somewhat of an old school approach to life. I enjoy listening to music, riding motorcycles, talking to people, reading, and writing. I do not watch television or drink alcohol. The majority of my time is spend researching materials or interviewing people regarding what I am writing about. My preference is writing a story that makes an impact on the reader. An impact that causes them to sit and think when they are finished with the book. To have someone finish a book and say, "Great book..." is fantastic. To have someone finish a book and say, "This book made such an impact on me that I immediately read it again, it changed my life.." is what I strive for. My novel, Broken People, is just that book.
I will never forget the first time I actually felt as if I had helped someone resolve an issue in their life. I was in middle school. It started then, and has continued throughout my entire life. I have always made myself available to talk to people and resolve (or attempt to resolve) issues that they struggle with.
Having an exceptional ability to communicate has always been a gift of mine, and I have enjoyed doing so. Telling stories has always been second nature to me. Writing has been a passion of mine since I was a child. I have written poetry, romance, self-help, addiction, alcoholism, codependency, technical, and satire. There isn't a genre or a topic that I feel more comfortable with. I enjoy writing about whatever it is that I feel passionate about at the time.
Being open-minded and often seeing abusive relationships unfold, I have always been passionate about abuse, or the prevention of it. My main focus has always been people that are incapable of helping themselves, primarily women, children, and the elderly. I have talked to hundreds of women that were in abusive relationships, and assisted many of them in removing themselves from these relationships.
I try to focus in my writings to develop a story that makes people stop and think. To look at a subject or subjects from a different point of view. If I am able to get my point across, and make the subject entertaining to the reader, I feel that I have met my objective. I feel that I have tremendous depth as a person, and have had some great experiences in my life. To date, what life has offered me has been nothing short of spectacular. My opinions, point of views, and perspectives on matters are just that; an opinion. There isn't necessarily a right or wrong in what I write, but more of a belief. I always believe in what I am writing, and I further believe that the reader may benefit from viewing it from the written perspective.
I hope that you enjoy reading what I have written as much as I enjoy writing it. Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than knowing a reader enjoyed something I have written. Considering that, please take time to leave a book review if you have read something I have written.

From Amazon's #1 best selling romance author Scott Hildreth - author of the #1 best selling erotic romance novels Undefeated, Unstoppable, and Unleashed comes a new twist on a romantic novel....love from every angle. If you've ever been in love, and certainly if you haven't, this novel is a must read.
From Best Selling Author Samantha Knight in her review of Finding Parker - ""Simply existing satisfies me as long as you are part of the existing"
That saying is something I am sure everyone longs to hear. That someone is happy simply because you exist in their world. While reading this novel I found how important 'finding your other half' really is. Not only to you, but to those closest to you as well. The love Parker finds is something I to wish to find someday.
"Life's greatest treasures will never be held, purchased, or bartered for. They will only ever be felt."
I knew this book was going to be nothing short of amazing. (I mean come on have you read a bad Hildreth book yet? No? Okay then) I had a preconceived feeling about how this book was going to go and it was nothing like I thought it was going to be. It was so much better. This book is truly a treasure and I felt Every. Single. Word. This book had it all, the good, the bad and the extremely heart breaking parts of life.
If there was ever a novel to start your life long Hildreth obsession, Finding Parker is that book. "
From Risqué Affair Book Blog's Lisa - "Finding Parker isn't just about finding the love of that one person who completes you. It's about all aspects of love. How love isn't limited to your 'other half', but extends to all those that touch your life. Sometimes you do things for people you love that you aren't proud of. And. Sometimes the love you give just makes sense and is selflessly beautiful.
We often build walls around our heart. We let those that didn't earn our love dictate how freely we give it in the future. You're living but not really because you're just going through the motions. You need to stop, breathe and embrace life. Those walls aren't just keeping people out, but they're keeping the best part of you locked away from sharing.... your love.
