about author 1

Kenzie Cade was born and raised in the South where she spends her days in the sometimes stressful field of private medicine observing interesting people and committing them to memory for later use. When she isn’t reading, experimenting with recipes, or being distracted by social media, Kenzie spends time with her family, friends, and the Pomeranian/long-haired Chihuahua mix who likes to keep her company while she writes. As a young girl, Kenzie dreamed of princesses and their white knights. As an adult (or sort of adult), she dreams of princes and their proverbial white knights, which she attributes to fellow Arkansan S.E. Hinton and her novel, The Outsiders. Writing to keep the fictional voices at bay, Kenzie enjoys the journeys her characters travel to find their happy endings, and she loves the challenge of writing a great love story.

To honor his grandmother’s final request, Trenton Appleton drops everything to visit the family’s ancestral home: Hummingbird House, where he experienced his first kiss and first heartbreak with Callum Eason.  Eight years ago, confused by his attraction to Trent, Callum reacted badly. But with help he never expected, Callum found himself and learned to accept who he was.  Now Trent is back at Hummingbird House, and Callum has his opportunity to salvage their friendship, at least. But Trent is less receptive than he was all those years ago. Still, Callum is determined to show Trent he has changed and keep his promise to Trent’s grandmother. When past mistakes repeat themselves, Callum must break the cycle before his last chance with Trent passes him by.



For a house that had stood empty for the past eight years, it was surprisingly… clean… and warm and bright. The lights were on in the living room to my left, but the clanging of pots and pans in the kitchen through the archway to my right drew my attention. Setting my suitcase and turn down quietly in the entryway, I pulled out an umbrella from the holder by the door. With every bit of stealth I possessed—which is not much—I crept into the kitchen, umbrella raised over my head. My heart raced and my breath sped up, until I crossed into the kitchen to find Callum at the sink.

My umbrella clanked to the wooden floor, and then I slumped over, hands to knees. Callum turned around eyes widened in surprise with an understanding smirk gracing his full lips. I wanted to hate those lips.

“What the fuck are you doing here?” I panted, looking up at Callum as I stumbled over to the nearest kitchen chair and plopped myself into it.

Callum shrugged. “I’ve been taking care of the place for Astrid for the past few years.”

I hadn’t known that. Had I known that? Had Astrid ever mentioned it? No. She certainly hadn’t. Though I’d never admit it aloud, I hung on every word she shared regarding Callum. And trust me, they were few and far between, as if she had known what had happened between us.

She probably had.

Callum had kept up Hummingbird House. The pain in my chest twisted just a little more than usual. I refused to think of it as a betrayal, certain Astrid had her reasons for not telling me. But I just couldn’t imagine what they were.

“That doesn’t explain why you’re here now.”


Book review 77


This is such a cute and warm Christmas story. For the last 8 years Trenton’s life revolved around caring for his dying grandmother. When she passed, her one wish was for him to return to their family home The Hummingbird House. As a child the house held great memories as well as a very devastating one. The loss of the only boy he ever truly love. Trenton wanted to make his Grandma proud so he returned to the cottage even if it meant seeing Callum and his wonderful family Trenton is sure he has now.

That fateful summer has always haunted Trenton when he pushed the boy he loved away. Confused and scared about his sexuality he did the only thing he knew to do, make Trenton hate him. It worked. Over the years Callum accepted who he was and never stopped loving Trenton, but when he went to visit he learned Trenton was in a relationship and he knew he had missed his chance.

Through the years the boys never stopped loving each other and fate found a way to give them one last chance. It wont be a n easy road because Callum will have to prove he is serious. With help from Astrid from the grave, she left letters for the boys encouraging them to mend the love that once was and to be happy. It is said that Hummingbird House is special and true love finds themselves at the house.  Will Trenton and Callum get over the past and have the future together they both want?  Read and find out you wont be disappointed.  I give this story 3.75* 



What’s the hardest part of writing your books?

Finding time. Though I will say, if you want to write bad enough, you will find time. It took me a while to learn that lesson, but once I did, it was almost impossible to keep me from writing. I even carry around a notebook and pencil when I don’t have my laptop on me.

Do you have any advice for other writers?

Write. Write often. And write some more.

Other than writing do you have any hobbies?

Reading. I’m fairly straightforward in that sense. I do love music and listen to a ton of it, but mostly that leads me back to writing or thinking about how a particular song relates to a book I’m reading or have read. I’m kind of a geek that way.

If you were not a writer what else would you like to have done?

You mean there are other things out there that people would choose to do? I tease. I love helping people and in my other life have worked in the medical field for over a decade. I think if I couldn’t write, I’d choose something in the medical field, something rewarding.

Can you share something about your works in progress?

Ooh… this is an exciting question. Yes. I am happy to share a few tidbits. I’m currently working on my first novel, a romantic suspense. I have a thing for cops and investigations so I wanted that to be part of my first big one. I also have a secret-not-so-secret project in the works with a fellow author, and I could not be more thrilled. It’s my first paranormal story, so I’m crazy nervous about it, also my coauthor is an idol of mine who now happens to be an amazing friend. Still, I’m all nerves, but beyond thrilled too.
