My name is M.L. Steinbrunn and I am a young adult and contemporary romance author. My work includes the popular Redemption Series and a young adult series, which includes my new release, A Beholden Heart. 
In addition to writing, I work full-time as a high school educator and coach in rural Colorado where my husband and I are raising our four young children. Through education I have enjoyed guiding others on their paths and helping students build their own stories. After countless evenings of discussing story ideas, it was my husband who encouraged me to follow my own path of self-publishing.
I want to send a huge thank you to those who have been overwhelmingly supportive of this journey.

Cover Reveal: TIME WILL TELL by Scarlett Wells

Title: Time Will Tell
Author: Scarlett Wells
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 12, 2016
When Emmett helps Viola on her first day of kindergarten, a friendship is forged. As the years pass, their friendship blossoms. But fate tears them apart just as they are discovering their true feelings for one another. Can their love survive time, distance, and the challenges life throws at them? Only time will tell.
Lola’s parents are hosting their annual New Year’s Eve party. My Dad and Alma are here celebrating with about 100 other adults from town. Lola’s parents relented and told Lola that I could sleep over. We haven’t done this since she was 8 and I was 10; we were told we couldn’t anymore because of something about boys and girls, and birds and bees that I didn’t understand at the time. I understand what they mean now, but they know I want to spend every single last minute by my Lola.
We’re up in her room; away from the party and the adults. We’ve hung more sheets up over the canopy on her bed so it’s like we’re in a tent. We’re both lying on our sides facing each other. Since it will be a long time before I see her again, I’m doing my best to memorize every little detail about her: the number and pattern of freckles on her nose, how incredibly long her eyelashes are, the exact shade of green of her eyes. I trace the shape of her face with my fingertip. She closes her eyes. My eyes focus on her mouth. I trace her lips and lean over and kiss her. Her eyes snap open and fix on mine.
I’ve kissed her almost every single day for the last few years; a peck on the lips or the cheek before I leave for the night. We hug, we hold hands… but something about this moment is very different.
She puts her hands on either side of my face and tells me what I want, what I need to hear.
“I love you, Emmett Allan Davis.”
I hug her to me, putting her head on my shoulder, kissing the top of her hair. We fall asleep clinging to each other like our lives depend on it.
Scarlett Wells has been a voracious reader since she was a toddler sitting in the laundry basket she used to move her library from place to place. Her love of reading has been a constant in her life and ultimately led to her sharing her own stories.
Scarlett is a stay-at-home mom to a sassy, precocious 5-year old, wife to a software engineer (read: geek), and slave to two cats. If she’s not reading or writing, she can be found at Target, trapped under an avalanche of laundry, guzzling wine while she’s cooking dinner, or playing with her munchkin.
