Please welcome my guest Leah Cupps. 
Question: What are the best and worst things about being a writer? 

The best thing about being a writing is the freedom to create any world you want. I love being able to take a story thread in a new direction. But with that freedom, comes a lot of writer’s angst. When you can write anything you want to, how do you decide? I think many writers like to stick to a specific genre because each of these categories come with certain rules to follow. As a writer, that might sound confining, however for me it really helps to organize the story that I want to tell…and still give the readers what they are looking for.

 And now, what you've been waiting for, a look at her latest release Never Play Fair. Would you look at that cover! And do not forget to enter the giveaway below.

Can Sydney find her FBI boyfriend in time, or will this gamble be here last?

Instagram Influencer Sydney Evans has seen and lived her share of photo-worthy experiences, but now, she’s found herself entangled in a situation she never saw coming.

After her FBI agent boyfriend, Alex, disappears while working a case involving a notorious Latin gangster, Vincent Estavez, the Department of Defense is forced to change tactics. Determined to bring down Estavez and the illegal online casino crime ring he’s been running by any means necessary, the FBI orchestrates an operation to infiltrate the gangster’s stronghold.

But Sydney only has one motivation for her own investigation: find Alex before he becomes collateral damage.

Desperate to locate her boyfriend in time, she flies to Costa Rica and is forced to seek help from an unlikely ally: her criminal ex-husband, Jack. He may be the last person she wants to see, but she’ll do whatever it takes to find Alex alive.

But Sydney isn’t the only one with a motivation against Vincent Estavez.
