Seeking Peace
♥ Kyle & Stella ♥

Scottish-American Kyle McCoy always knew what he wanted. A life without cubicles. He dreamed of a musician’s life where he could write and record his music. He always knew that was the life for him... until he got what he wanted.

As his concert tour ends, Kyle finds himself at a crossroads in his life. One road leads to stardom and fame, as his alter-ego Keegan, at a cost he isn’t sure he can accept. The other road seems to lead to a claustrophobic cubicle-bound life that he’s certain will be his worst nightmare.

While Kyle contemplates both paths, a chance meeting with an old friend offers him a new path... a path to Peace and Stella Albright, the lovely owner of Peace’s Bed & Breakfast. With his future hanging in the balance, Kyle must reconcile reality with his life as Keegan, while convincing Stella that allowing passion back in her life could save them both.

About The Author


S. H. Pratt: A native Montanan, currently living in Olympia, Washington, I am the mom of three profoundly gifted children who take my lack of sanity as a challenge to make me sane.

I began writing in high school. I stopped writing to pursue my education but quickly realized I had no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up... I still don't know. So I decided to find a "real job". Over the course of the next twenty years, I tried everything from barista, to a restaurant manager, to a purchasing agent and an administrative assistant to the owner of a fire truck construction company and everything in between.

I returned to writing in 2012. By the time I worked up the nerve to attempt self-publishing, I'd amassed a stack of rejection letters and seven complete manuscripts. The first three books that I wrote after ‘growing up’ a bit were published in paperback only and only to those who special ordered it. It will never be printed or released again due to the nature of my mental state when I wrote it. I was in a very bad place, emotionally, and those three books were my therapeutic catharsis. The first book I wrote and subsequently published was Always My Love and it was more of a homecoming, the characters involved, a withdrawn and wary writer (see what I did there?) goes back to her version of “home” which is her best friend/cousin. I wrote the cousin based on my own best friend/cousin and from there I wrote of new beginnings with the cousin’s friend who gives the author a reason to see “home” differently. It was another way to heal emotionally.

I prefer to write contemporary romance with a heavy emphasis on psychology and the emotions of my characters. I feel that if my reader can feel what the character feels and can identify with it, I've done my job. After Always My Love, the books that I’ve written have been a different sort of therapy. They touch on issues such as: spousal abuse, cheating, date rape, PTSD and a myriad of other hot button topics that I’ve seen first-hand in my life via my siblings and other experiences. I love to do the research involved with deep psychological issues and creating the character that everyone loves to hate. The stand alone book I love the most is Shy of Tomorrow. It just touches a place in my heart where books live as it’s about a librarian who finds more than she bargains for in the aisles of the library. One other thing that I simply love to write about is multiples. So far, five of my eleven books have either twins or triplets, with six more WIPs actively being worked on with twins or triplets. As for a muse… life inspires me. rned. She has a personal page too, but you can find it on your own.
