I was born in Williamsburg Virginia and raised in Yorktown Virginia so paranormal inspiration was easily obtained. I have 4 awesomesauce kids and an AMAZING husband. Currently I'm working on three books, all Paranormal Romance. I'm a google junkie and can find a pic on google to fit any conversation and will cyber stalk a topic till my eyes hurt if I am interested in it enough. Coffee and gummy bears are an hourly habit. Some of my favorites include: Reading (of course), writing (well duh), baking fancy shmancy cakes, painting and last but not least hanging out with the fam <3

1) I am obsessed with Favicons. They are the little icon next to a websites name in the tabs on a browser. I like to make them pretty when I can.

2) I have an irrational fear of all bugs, spiders especially but I loathe them all equally and turn into a crying ninja when I see them.

3) I make fancy shmancy cakes, but don’t really like to eat cake.

4) Stray cats are attracted to me like lent to static.

5) I am a pediatric nurse and I LOVE my job.

6) I have a fear of being murdered while in the shower, even when the door is locked I am afraid something will crawl out of the mirror or toilet so I keep my eyes open the whole time…even when washing my face (it is possible).

7) I listen to the same song on repeat the entire time I am writing a chapter.

8) I totaled my first car going 3 (yes three) miles an hour.

9) I love all things Wonderland (especially Johnny Depp)

10) I totally believe in aliens. In my head I picture them all as Luxen aka Daemon (The Lux Series by Jennifer L Armentrout)

11) When I see people’s pics on facebook or Instagram, I totally check out the background (their living room, car, kitchen etc.)

12) I could eat avocados, chicken and watermelon for the rest of my life and be completely content.

13) Short arm T-rex jokes get me every time haha!

14) I have to have at least eight pillows on my bed or I can’t sleep. I sleep with 6 of them and they have to be positioned just right or I will toss and turn like a two year old.

15) I had the brilliant idea of going by a pen name of Summer Rayne until I said it out loud and ugly laughed at how ridiculous it was.

16) I have the mouth of a seasoned sailor. Except around my grandma, mom and kids…well sometimes the kids push it but I don’t make it a habit lol

17) I can find a picture that will suit any conversation I am having within a matter of seconds.

18) I have an issue with whiteboards. I will redo them a million times till the words/lines are straight.

19) I’m an over-roller when it comes to toilet paper (I am running out of fun facts so it has come to the way I roll my toilet paper and for this I apologize)

20) Writing 20 “fun facts” about myself has proven to me I need to go sky dive or something more exciting than cake and toilet paper. Thanks for reading!

Review: CHANGING TUNES by Heather Gunter

Changing Tunes is a New Adult Romance by the fabulous Heather Gunter and today we get to share our thoughts with you.

Title:   Changing Tunes
Series:   The Changing Series
Author:  Heather Gunter
Genre:  New Adult
Release Date:  February 16, 2014
Cover Design:  Robin Harper of Wicked by Design

Ashley Davis is over her high school 'bitch' label and has decided to reinvent herself. College offers a new beginning, a chance to be different. After being assaulted, she's realized that she needs to change and college is just the place to do it. Nobody knows the Ashley she used to be and she'd like to keep it that way.
Afraid of falling into the same patterns she decides that having no friends, no life and focusing on school is the way to go, but she didn’t bank on someone like Mac as her roommate or the tall, dark and completely geek hot in his glasses, Zeke Whitman.

Ezekiel (Zeke) Whitman is driven and focused when it comes to school. When he's forced to partner with a tall, leggy blonde with a slight attitude, he's thrown for a loop. With so much at stake, Zeke can’t afford distractions and Ashley is certainly that. From their first encounter Zeke sees more than just another gorgeous girl.

As Ashley grapples with leaving the ‘old’ her behind, she realizes that sometimes changing tunes isn't as easy as it sounds. Sometimes you have to keep a little of the person that you were, in order to become the person that you want to be.

Zeke sets the food on the table before grabbing me and pulling me to him. There’s another knock on the door, but I don’t acknowledge it. I’m too caught up in the set of dark chocolate-brown eyes that are so serious and staring intently at me. “What?” I ask hoarsely.

Let’s face it, if there wasn’t anyone here, I’d be dragging his fine ass into my bedroom and doing a lot of naughty things to him, but I can’t. Mac and Nick and whoever knocked on the door are here as well.

 “You’re just so damn beautiful.” He takes a deep breath before continuing, “I can’t believe you’re mine.”

The wave of emotions that pass through me is indescribable and I’m at a loss for words. In this moment there is no one in the room except him and me. A single tear tracks its way down my cheek without me knowing, and he swipes it away with his thumb. It’s almost symbolic to me; like this man before me is capable of wiping every bit of hurt away and making me feel whole again.   His hand cups the side of my face as I lean into it, and reflexively, I rest my hand over his, holding it in place. He gently, but hungrily, swipes his lips across mine and I can’t help the moan that escapes. He leans back, with a promise in his eyes this will be continued later.  “Are you hungry?”

“Shit,” I breathe, coming back to reality and look around. I notice it’s just the two of us. “Where did everyone go?”

The front door suddenly swings open and Nick hollers, “I’m hungry. Are you two done making disgusting googly eyes at each other so we can eat?” I throw my head back and laugh, embarrassed, but also touched my friends were kind enough to see a moment between us and respect it. It’s actually quite amazing, which is why I know it had to be Mac that dragged them out. I catch her eye and mouth a thank you.  She nods and smiles, doing a small curtsy, making me chuckle and shake my head.

Kelly's Review of CHANGING TUNES
I really connected with the main character, although I was completely the opposite of her in high school. The writing is wonderful and the characters felt like people I knew. I wanted to laugh at some of their missteps, cry with them, especially whenever Ashley's father texted her, and slap her silly when she was doing something stupid. And Zeke was someone I could easily have fallen for. I loved that Ashley, who knew she had a reputation as a spoiled bitch in high school, was hoping for a fresh start in college, but kept slipping into her old self. Mac, her roommate is so much FUN! I felt like she was Ashley's Jimminy Cricket, her conscience, the voice of reason who kept things light when this book could easily have been very dark. I give this book 4 stars. An excellent book I would recommend to people 18+ who are not offended by casual one-night stand sex scenes.

Heather is a devoted mother of three gorgeous boys.  She balances spending as much time with them as possible with writing, updating her Into the Night Reviews book blog and her day job.  Her love of animals sees her home in Canton, GA bursting with numerous dogs and ferrets.

Heather campaigns passionately for anti-bullying initiatives and has a strong conviction to reduce peoples suffering at the hands of bullies.

A talented singer, who once dreamed of pursuing a career in that field, she has put that goal aside in exchange for her writing.  A self proclaimed geek, whatever spare time she has is spent curled on the couch reading and listening to music.

Look for Tattered Pieces by Heather Gunter - Coming Soon

Riding high on the waves of success, Dove Sinclair, lead singer of Tattered Pieces, has it all - until one fateful night her party hard lifestyle almost costs her everything. Stupid and reckless doesn't even begin to describe her actions. Getting arrested definitely wasn't in the game plan, nor was an enforced stay in the Serenity Lakeview Clinic. If Dove wants to keep her band, her career and her life, then there is no alternative. The question is, will rehab force her to deal with the things that have triggered her reckless behavior or will she continue trying hard to forget and fade further into the dark.

Jasper Phillips is the kind of guy everyone loves. He comes from a good family, works hard and seems to have it all. Friendly, positive and popular are words people use to describe Jasper regularly. Sometimes what’s on the outside is only what we want people to see, while on the inside we’re battling demons that are too frightening to describe. When those demons manage to catch up to you, the whispers of their world becomes a very inviting place.

Dove doesn’t understand how Jasper fits in at Serenity Lakeview Clinic but something about him calls to her, awakening her desire to feel alive and normal again. As Jasper battles his inner darkness he is drawn to Dove, all the while fearing that if she gets close enough she won't like what she sees. As Jasper struggles to stay in the light, can he help Dove see what she has right in front of her?

Review and Spotlight AURORA CONSPIRACY

Aurora Conspiracy
  Ginger Gelsheimer, Christina Keats

Science Fiction / Young Adult

Aurora Conspiracy Prequel Series
Co-Authors: Ginger Gelsheimer, Christina Keats

Inspired by the Raiders of the Lost Ark, 
Doctor Who and Ancient Aliens

“Best sci-fi time travel story going!” 
                                     – S. Lennon (Amazon reviewer)

Travel back in time with the Aurora Conspiracy Prequel Series and follow Aurelius, a man from another world, on his adventure with generation after generation of the Proctor family through some of the most important events and discoveries in history.   Meet famous historic figures and discover how they were impacted. The possibilities are endless with this cast of characters, who must surely be out there somewhere.

Crash Landing: Aurora Conspiracy Prequel Series - Episode One

“I yearn for only one thing in life…adventure!” – Emily Proctor journal entry, dated April 16, 1897

After crashing at Proctor Farm, Aurelius is pronounced dead by Judge Proctor and the town doctor. Hiding him away from harm and spectacle, they open a doorway that will ultimately change Emily’s life and the world forever.  
Emily watches over him as he lies in a coma, tortured by the unknown. Nursing him to health, she will do the unthinkable and fall in love with him.  However, with a mission of his own, Aurelius must find a way to return home to Erebus, which means he will leave Emily behind. If he’s discovered alive, they’ll have much more to worry about than love.

Conflict Rising:  Aurora Conspiracy Prequel Series - Episode Two

“I can’t wait any longer. It’s time to take control.” Emily Proctor journal entry - December 3, 1897

Devastated and angry, Emily will stop at nothing to get Aurelius home, if she can only find him. On her new adventure, she will meet Liza, the witch doctor, and just in the nick of time… but is it Liza of the past or Liza of the future? Emily will also discover a secret that will change the Proctors forever.
Meanwhile, Aurelius investigates the Underground, the true “Area 51” operated by the military and a strange society. He will cross paths with arch rival enemy and future ally, Syrius, who will save the day more than once throughout the Aurora Conspiracy saga. While he’s there, he is also introduced to Nikola Tesla, who vows to get him home.
Emily will meet Syrius and discover that he knows Aurelius and where the Underground is. When she decides to follow him, she finds herself in the kind of trouble she never could have imagined, with a noose around her neck. Will she make it out alive, and what does President McKinley have to do with it?

Calm Before the Storm:  Aurora Conspiracy Prequel Series - Episode Three

“Then we’re at war.” – Commander Zurtoch refusing to turn over the Hybrid

Aurelius must follow the ruling of the Erebusian Committee after breaking Doctrine Thirteen. Emily’s life depends on it, but there’s just one problem—she’ll never agree to the terms.
Distraught, after Aurelius sends her home alone, Emily finds another nightmare waiting for her there. She’ll have to rely on the help of Syrius, Liza and a sacrifice.
After Aurelius realizes he can’t abandon Emily in her time of need, he rushes to Proctor Farm for the big event. Besides an attempted robbery by two infamous brothers, Aurelius and Syrius will have to survive the massive shootout with the Celphian soldiers waiting for them at Proctor Farm.

Chaos Unleashed:  Aurora Conspiracy Prequel Series - Episode Four

“Like an instant flicker, it was a sudden blow.
As if all the time in the world led to this very moment...”

Emily and her son Reli are on the run, evading the Celphian soldiers that want to kidnap Reli. Reuniting with Barnaby, they travel through time and dimensions, never staying in one place for too long. The old, broken wagon traveler is quirky with its landings, and they run into trouble with the Founding Fathers, when Benjamin Franklin tries to steal the magic crystal.
Aurelius and Syrius hunt down Celphian breeding grounds, hoping to eliminate them before Commander Rydar builds an army large enough to start the war to extinguish the hybrids.  They are pulled away from their mission when they receive a bad vibe about a dear friend and rush to save him.
With Reli growing up before her eyes, the reality of her mortality becomes an obsession for Emily. She begins taking alien blood injections, trying to achieve the same longevity that Liza had. Unfortunately, all it seems to do for Emily is make her a little cuckoo, which is never good when running from Celphians.

Aurora Conspiracy Trilogy
Co-Authors: Ginger Gelsheimer, Christina Keats

Quest of The Hybrid: Aurora Conspiracy Trilogy - Book One

Inspired by Raiders of the Lost Ark, Ancient Aliens and the Hunger Games

“If you are a fan of science fiction such as Doctor Who, Stargate Atlantis and other book and movie franchises (namely Indiana Jones and the X-Files), then you will find this novel incredibly exciting.” – Lucinda (Amazon reviewer)

The clock ticks down for 19-year-old Jesse Proctor as she embarks on a quest to discover the truth behind her mother’s disappearance into a windmill 10 years before--the very windmill conspiracy theorists believe an alien met fate with in 1897 in Aurora, Texas. Desperate to find answers, she uncovers an enigma--a dimension portal, which opens the doorway to some of the most mysterious places in the universe including: the Bermuda Triangle, the Pyramids of Giza and Atlantis. Could it also lead her to the love of her life?

After Jesse meets Aurelius, an alien from Planet Erebus, she discovers a secret that will throw her into the middle of an age-old war with the Celphians, who desires to extinguish the hybrid-infested human race. Danger and mayhem await them at every turn. To make matters worse, her mother is being held captive on Planet Celphi.

Or is she?

Jesse Proctor

“She’s ready, sir… these things don’t affect her.” - Sonya
Jesse represents the Proctor family well with her independence and tenacity.  Very much like her ancestor Emily, who we fell in love with in Episode 1, Jesse is curious and adventurous and won’t take no for an answer.
As writers, we both love Jesse and have thoroughly enjoyed following her on this great adventure.  She is surely some combination of both of us, as well as our daughters, and we are excited and strive to see her reach her full potential.
She is a woman on a mission with a drive that can’t quit
The audience joins Jesse Proctor on her adventure as she winds through the Aurora Conspiracy trilogy.  She matures through her experience from a young girl to amazing future leader.


“Emily stared at the victim and couldn’t understand the electric vibe of energy that ran through her body. His skin was beautiful, olive in color beneath its iridescence, and the shimmer of his violet eyes captivated her.” - Emily Proctor
Aurelius has known and loved the Proctor family through the generations since 1897.  He watches over them and does his best to keep them safe.
We both love Aurelius, as he is our true muse.  There were times we honestly joked about and felt as though he was out there somewhere channeling his story to us.  It literally spewed out at times to where we just couldn’t stop creating.
He is to Jesse, as Obi-Wan was to Luke
Aurelius forms the framework for the entire franchise, as it was his crash in 1897 that kicked off the Proctor legacy.  He represents age, wisdom and exploration and provides the audience with something to hold on to, a way to believe that Jesse will be okay.


“She held his hand in hers. Her skin became warm and she could feel the heat surge through her veins.” - Emily's inner thoughts
Emily lived a very secluded life on the farm. Doing her duties and chores she kept to a schedule. In her free time however, she found solace by the nearby stream in the wooded area that took up a good junk of their land. It was there that she found peace. It was there that she had dreams of the future and outside possibilities beyond the farm. It was also there that she could lose hope in the same day. Until of course...her day finally came-Aurelius.
Emily’s belief in her purpose is what gave us as writers the motivation to make her a key part of to the story. She took her chance and did it responsibly and without greed. She understood what was right and did just that, never veering from that path. Heartbroken yet strong she helped to raise our future.
A quiet dream can sometimes save the world
Take in that small bit of time where it all began. Respect Emily as you would any mother that nurtured, cared, and believed in herself and the love she was given.
“Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” - Alfred Lord Tennyson

James Proctor

“Dude, really? Why don’t you use a shotgun like normal people?” – James Proctor
James keeps to himself for the most part. Almost like he was waiting for something. Stubborn like his sister, he doesn’t like to step down from his beliefs. His willingness to change, however, comes with the new path life takes him down as a once quiet and stable home he felt he was undertaking, turns into a gateway to new worlds and thoughts that truly take him outside the box.
Invigorated and unadmittably scared, James will stop at nothing to make sure his sister is safe. And he too, has the hunger for truth as he can finally admit, and won’t take no for an answer.
Letting James loose and come to life was a fun part of this story. Like many of us, it’s a step out to admit you believe in the unbelievable. As an audience, in his own way, James learns the truth and has faith in what he truly believes in. His loyalty cannot be matched. Step out with James and together, we can see what others deemed impossible.
A man with a quiet past gives into the truth out of love...and loyalty
The audience will appreciate James for his physical abilities, his charms but mostly his struggle with change. Like him, they will learn that to truly know what is out there in the world, one needs to be open. Against all odds, he finds himself willing to do just that.


““He wasn’t really my brother, but he might as well have been; the three of us had been musketeers since I was five.  Marcus was a natural charmer with his celebrity smile and dark shaggy surfboard hair and he loved messing with me.”  - Jesse Proctor
Marcus grew up around the Proctors from the time he was eight when his mother, older sister and he moved to Aurora to live with his grandparents after his father died unexpectedly.  His family had known the Proctors for generations.
Marcus is no doubt Ginger’s favorite secondary character for his big smile and playful personality.  He’s also a protector and has a deep heart which becomes more and more evident as the story plays out.
He’s the knight in shining armor
who sometimes needs saving
by the damsel in distress
We wanted Marcus to be fun for the audience.  His long shaggy hair makes him look like something off the beach from California and his pearly whites and Cheshire grin are irresistible to most women, but not to Jesse.  The cat and mouse game between them was without a doubt one of the most fun to create.  But he’s also solid as a rock and a strong foundation for Jesse when the going gets tough.

Ginger Gelsheimer became part of the surf & ski writing team in 2009, when the Aurora Conspiracy franchise came to life over a great bottle of vino. What if he lived? We wondered about the alien that crashed into a windmill in 1897... and that's how Aurelius was born.
With writing partner Christina Keats, Ginger took a leap of faith and embarked on her own adventure of a lifetime with the Aurora Conspiracy trilogy, kicking her corporate job to the curb. Together, these ladies have explored the outer limits of where life could actually take them. The freedom and boundary-less adventure in Aurora Conspiracy has truly become a reflection of the freedom they have demanded and achieved in their lives.
Ginger has also started another series called The Dark Days, which is loosely based on a prequel to The Hunger Games. She has written three episodes so far with her daughter, Taylor Anderson.
Ginger lives in Tampa, Florida where the ocean inspires imagination. She lives with Taylor and a house full of black furry animals and four huge fish in the pond.
Stories, movies, writing and the world of creativity have always been a part of Christina's life and in 2009 things took a natural shift. The formation of the "Surf & Ski writing team" set things in motion with her writing partner, Ginger, when Aurora Conspiracy came to life.
A warm Colorado evening and the curiosity of the unknown led to the birth of Jesse, Aurelius and the truth. The Aurora Texas crash in 1897 may be known throughout the world but the true facts of what really happened are not. Hence, the quest to bring out the truth and its possibilities began.
From that moment on, they explored these possibilities through the wild legends and great heroes of Earth, time and space. This adventure continues to unfold between the coast of Florida and the Rockies of Colorado, and this Surf & Ski team are excited to share these new stories with you!
Christina lives her life with true passion and where all things are due a good exploration. Living in Colorado and an undeniable nature fanatic, Christina finds her solace in her home, her family and her spirit for life's possibilities, believing nothing is impossible and nothing is untouchable.

How we came up with the idea for the Aurora Conspiracy Trilogy and Prequel Series...

We came up with the idea for Aurora Conspiracy on one of our “make sure to stay friends by seeing each other frequently” visits in Colorado. Some good wine and great chatter left us yearning for more than normal conversation. As we settled into the alien and conspiracy TV shows that have always peaked our interest, it was as if direct message flew in and plopped right down beside us. One particular story about a spaceship that crashed in Aurora, Texas in 1897, caught our attention. The evidence that it had actually happened was overwhelming - you had to try hard not to believe it. We thought “what if he lived?” ...and the next minute, Aurelius was born. Now, he is our muse, renting space in our heads, and he is LOUD and “high-maintenance”, demanding that his story gets told.

That sunny and relaxing evening turned into a high-energy night with high-speed momentum. We had no idea it would lead to a project we will probably work on for a decade. From the one story we grew and began to intertwine other conspiracies and events from history into an epic journey that runs through generations of the Proctor family who nursed Aurelius back to health when he originally crashed.

Quest of the Hybrid – Hunted

He threw the fruit down and slowly wiped his face with the back
of his hand. When he looked up at me, his eyes were as black as coal.
A chill ran down my spine. “Marcus, are you okay?”

No response. He just stared at me with cold, dark eyes.
He pulled his knife out of his pocket slowly and held it up, ready to
throw a kill. Looking behind me to see what he was aiming at, I
slowly began to back up, realizing I was the only one in range.
“Marcus! Talk to me!”

He stood motionless with his blade still aimed at me. I continued
back away from him slowly.

“Marcus, please, stop messing around,” I pleaded. “You’re
scaring me.” I could handle a lot of things, but I don’t know what
do with this.

Still not responding, he moved closer with white foam beginning
to ooze from his lips like a rabid animal. My instinct told me to
hightail it out of there.

I ran toward my backpack just in time, as the blade whizzed by
my head. I grabbed the bag successfully, but he beat me to my spear.
 “Marcus! Snap out of it,” I yelled, but it was no use. Raising the spear,
he ran in my direction. He was hunting me.

Quest of the Hybrid – Sam was here

Tracing the letters of my mother’s name, my fingers lightly brushed across the cool, clammy stone. Somehow, it made me feel connected to her even though she wasn’t here.

“Guess you’re going to have to get over that fear of yours. Looks like we’re going this way,” he said, edging toward the darkness.

Knowing my mom had followed this path before me eased any fear I had of caves. I walked outside and grabbed my backpack, his knife, and the spear I had made.

Marcus lightly poked his finger on the tip of my spear. “That’d pierce an armadillo.”

“I’m not helpless. Here’s your knife.” I wished I hadn’t said that right before I thought to ask him to make a couple of torches to light our way.

I looked at him and before I could speak he’d read my mind. “Need something, helpless?”
“Smart ass, make us some torches.”

Quest of the Hybrid – Buried Alive

Her eyes opened wide and she pushed on the lid of her coffin, which didn’t budge. She didn’t expect it to.

“I can’t believe I let that asshole bury me alive to cover his tracks. He better keep his promise this time,” she mumbled to herself. “Enough of him, time to get me out of here,” she shook her head at the repulsion she felt inside the death box.

Quest of the Hybrid – Far, far away

The lightning lit up the entire sky, and there must have been hundreds of ghost planes and ships circling in the mist. It was surreal and I couldn’t tell if it was actually happening, or if this was a new vision.

Struggling to navigate, I managed to keep the plane upright, as it bounced back and forth on each side. As if I didn’t have enough to handle, a huge schooner came out of nowhere and was headed right for us. Dodging it was impossible, we were going to crash.

I braced for the impact with tears swelling up in my eyes, hoping James couldn’t sense my emotions. I wasn’t ready to die. This was it, I was about to throw us into a nosedive; the only thing I thought might save us…

The read the first three episodes of the Aurora Conspiracy. And they are episodes as they read very much like scripts, very short and heavy with dialog. As such, they are well done. My only concern is that everyone is so friendly. Very basically, the background of the story is that two warring races of space aliens are intent on destroying the “human mistake” while individual aliens are trying to save the human race.  I would have liked to see someone freak out that there were aliens walking among them. But everyone welcomed them with open arms and a warning that other people aren’t so friendly. Perhaps it changes in later episodes as I noticed that there is a lot of foreshadowing; people met in passing become important later on. Normally I a completely against cliffhangers and incomplete novels, but this story has drawn me in and I will be getting the next episodes. I give this 4 stars. * * * *
