“What, no last kiss for me?” I ask, my pout on full display. Mickey looks at me as if he suddenly remembers that this will probably be our last kiss until January and heads toward me. Pulling me in his arms, he kisses me with such passion and need that it makes me weak in the knees. “I could spend a whole eternity kissing you, my heaven,” he says, breathlessly. “I love you, Laylah. You are my world, remember that.” “I love you too, Mickey,” I whisper to him. Stretching up onto my tiptoes, I hug the love of my life, wishing that we could stay like this forever.”

Sixty days; the length of a traditional Puerto Rican Christmas, starting the day before thanksgiving and ending as soon as January 6th. That’s how long Laylah’s entire family will be visiting. Laylah has been in love with her brother’s best friend, Mickey, since she was ten. Even at such a young age, she knew her love was true. At thirteen, her family moved away, leaving her love and his beautiful dimpled smile behind. At eighteen, Laylah went off to California to attend college. At nineteen, Laylah returned home to her grandmother’s, broken and lost as to where her place in the world was. Six years is how long it had been since Laylah and Mickey had seen each other; six years is how long it took for them to finally be together. Two years later, Mickey and Laylah are going strong. They have built a life together, a life they want to live forever. One problem, only a few select people know that they are a couple, let alone living together. Now, the entire family is coming to stay for sixty days to celebrate the holidays after years apart. Will this family be able to endure the next sixty days filled with secrets, lies, and deceit that threatens to break them apart? Will Mickey and Laylah’s love be able to withstand the next sixty days? Join Laylah as she embarks on this journey of family, love, and finding her true self.

Random Facts:
1.      It took a year to finish Sixty Days; I almost gave up on writing it, for half of that year it just stood there in my laptop without me even touching it, until summer 2013 when I finally finished it.
2.      I do most things with odd numbers.
3.      I love being barefoot; putting shoes can sometimes be an annoyance.
4.      I am a vegetarian.
5.      One time a garden snake went inside our house and I kept it as a pet behind my mom’s back, until she found it and had my uncle kill it. R.I.P. Lilo.
6.      My biggest phobias are lizards and frogs.
7.      I’m a huge Batman fan and have a small collection of Batman items.
8.      I was told I shouldn’t publish Sixty Days because it was too long; the person that told me so had only read 35 pages.
9.      I like to take naps in order to clear my head and get a story straight or when my characters give me a head ache.
10.  Laylah and Kevin had a younger sister when I began to write the story, as the story progressed she got cut out. Most of the scenes were divided between Arianna and Kevin, others were completely deleted.
I rather write on paper first and then on computer (technology and I don’t get along pretty well).

She stirs something inside me, primal and deep, that I refuse to give knowledge to. She's also my wet fucking dream. I want inside that tight little body so bad, but she's important to River, and as bad as I want her, I know I won't want her for longer than my needs take to be satisfied. So I don't pursue her, even though when she smiles at me, all nervous and coy, my dick strains against my jeans. I have to hold him there to stop him from tearing through and slithering up her leg. Now look at me, fucking locked into
a relationship I don’t want to be in with a kid on the way I had never planned on having.

My thoughts vanish when the door to the studio opens and Kyra steps out with fucking Hannah and her sister in tow. Kyra's eyes find mine and she offers a timid wave. She looks so sweet in her skin tight leggings and tank top. Fuck, her body is lean, but she still has curves in all the right places. Her dark red hair looks like the colour of the fancy wine Derek drinks; her pouty red lips would look so perfect around my dick. It twitches to life with my thoughts, but it’s her eyes that do it for me. They’re dark green like the grass
in winter, and they have a sparkle like small pieces of crystal embedded in an emerald.

Fuck! What a pussy I’m being. Crystal in emeralds? What the fuck?

When not lost in her mind of characters Ker can be found reading or spending time
with family.
She has a passion for music which kick started her writing passion. Writing lyrics
has always been an outlet and way to express her emotions.
She can also be found having in-depth chats about book boyfriends on face book in
