This Young Migraineur Fights Her Own Chronic Pain by Helping to Spread Migraine Awareness

9 year old Lindsay is one of the 36 million Americans that live with migraines.

She chose to fight back against her chronic pain by making this video to show others why migraines are a serious medical condition that needs for funding towards research in order for there to be a chance at finding a cure.

Check out what my publicist just tweeted about The Storms That Fated Us

I am still trying to wrap my head around all of what has happened these past few months.

I honestly never thought I would accomplish something as wonderful as making a best seller’s list after unexpectedly taking a very long absence from the writing world because of all of my severe and very debilitating chronic migraines and cluster headaches.But here I am, smiling so hard my face will no doubt be hurting for days. Which I am more than okay with!

Of course none of this would be possible without the help of my publicist, who had total faith in me and my work not to mention my family, friends and readers that kept encouraging me to never give up on doing something I love so much.

I don’t think BLESSED can even come close to describing what I am feeling right now, but it definitely comes pretty darn close.

The Between Boyfriend Collection

Now you can get all 3 of Sarka-Jonae Miller’s ebooks in one swanky collection!

The Between Boyfriends collection combines the award-winning comedy novel, Between Boyfriends, with its two hilarious sequels. The romantic comedies follow the misadventures of twenty-something Jan Weston from San Diego to Sydney, and from one City of Angels to the other.

Between Boyfriends

At first glance, twenty-one-year-old Jan Weston has it all: a gorgeous boyfriend, fun friends, and wealthy parents who take care of all those pesky credit card bills. Then her boyfriend dumps her, her friendships fall apart, and her parents cut her off. Suddenly without money, without a man, and without a plan, it’s time for Jan to grow up.

Determined to get her life back on track, Jan decides it’s time to make it on her own. Can she find her way as a single lady in San Diego? Can she fix her friendships, her job prospects, and her hair? And can she keep her vow that she’ll never date again, even after she meets a guy who just might be perfect for her?

BETWEEN BOYFRIENDS is a sexy, hilarious story of living life, finding love, and growing up…but not necessarily in that order.

Between the Sheets

It’s been three years since Jan Weston swore off men, and her resolve isn’t what it used to be. When a family emergency diverts her travel companion to LA, a fun semester abroad in Bangkok turns into a lonely trip for one. Although she’s supposed to be studying international business at Thammasat University along with Thai massage at the famous Wat Pho, Jan finds herself studying her teacher,
especially his cute butt.

But she isn’t just hot for teacher. Jan also meets an athletic Italian ready to show her a good time and an artistic Thai man who says all the right things. Can she resist the allure of dating abroad? Could she even choose which of the three she wants between the sheets? And if she does give in, can what happens in Bangkok stay in Bangkok?

As Jan struggles to finish her education amidst so many distractions, she must also deal with the loss of a friend, a deep betrayal, and news of a death in the family that could lead to an overdue reconciliation. BETWEEN THE SHEETS is a sensual story of making mistakes, overcoming obstacles, and finding love in the
strangest of places.

Between Heartbreak and Happiness

Jan Weston is heading to the land Down Under to meet her long-lost grandfather, leaving the man she thinks is the love of her life back in Los Angeles. Instead of a pretentious gentleman with a didgeridoo up his bum, Jan is greeted by a Hawaiian shirt wearing surfie to whom she couldn’t possibly be related.

Jan gets to know her grandfather Brady while experiencing everything Sydney has to offer, from hanging out at Bodhi Beach to visiting local spas (if she happens to find ideas to steal for a future business, even better). The final pieces of her family’s puzzling past are revealed and for the first time, Jan feels connected to a blood relation, but her need to return to Pan is a constant pull.

When the lovebirds are reunited, they realize neither have a solution for what to do when Pan’s job ends and he must fly home to Thailand. If she could make her spa a reality, maybe there’d be a place for him there, and with her, forever? But Jan’s life is never easy. As she questions her lover’s commitment, her ability to run a business, and her sanity, Jan realizes that all the things she never considered might be exactly what she needs. BETWEEN HEARTBREAK AND HAPPINESS is an inspirational story of love, family, taking risks, and following your heart.

Welcome to My Reality of Living with Cluster Headaches

This is one of the headache disorders I was diagnosed with last year.

The drugs people with cluster headaches take have side effects, some of them severe. Pain killers are usually ineffective and can be addictive. Steroids can be effective, but their use is limited by the damage they can do to the body. Triptans such as Imitrex can affect the heart, and some say they prolong the cluster cycle or cause rebound headaches. 

Anti-convulsant drugs can affect mental acuity. Some medications are expensive enough to drive the sufferer into bankruptcy.

If you take a few minutes to watch this then you’ll understand why I became an advocate for headache disorders.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZeUha85wM9s&feature=youtu.be

Arielle Immortal Quickening Blurb

 

A fatal night…
College co-ed Arielle Lloyd is on vacation with her immortal love, Sebastian Gaulle, when they receive word of a dreadful accident. Her dear friend Gabrielle hovers near death. But it’s much worse for her beloved friends, Eva and Ian. In spite of Eva’s magical abilities, their lives are cut tragically short, leaving Troy the lone survivor.

An immortal choice…
Troy Vasser’s only love is Gabrielle, but on the night of the accident, his deepest concern is for their dying friends. When the life force within Ian and Eva flickered dangerously low, Troy was forced to make a hard choice. He could either let them die, or take away their humanity and make them live as immortals. He did the only thing he could: he gave them immortality. Now it is up to Arielle to break the news to Eva before the transformation is complete.

A quest for vengeance…
Danger continues to stalk Arielle’s life. Unbeknownst to her, her new professor is an immortal, and he is furious when he discovers that Arielle is wearing an amulet that should only be owned by immortals. Sebastian’s nemesis, Annabel, is still pursuing her quest to destroy Arielle. But what Annabel doesn’t realize is that Arielle’s circle of friends has drastically changed. There are two newly minted immortals that adore her and have vowed to protect her.
