It’s almost here!

You all, I can not express how happy I am to announce that Flare book two in the Firebrand Chronicles will be released tomorrow! Pre-order link is below! Check out the description for one of my favorite series!

Brenna travels to Linneah via portal to visit her boyfriend Baldwin, only to find heartbreak.
Betrayal. A serious case of never, ever wanting to see him again. Worst summer vacation
So when her best friend Tiny invites her on a road trip to meet Tiny’s fiancé, Brenna jumps at the chance. Even if her mother disapproves. Even if it’s through a dangerous travel portal. Even if Tiny has never met this fiancé handpicked by her dad. Anything’s better than staying in Linneah.
But the trip disintegrates into disaster. The two friends are separated, Brenna is kidnapped, and not only are Brenna’s Firebrand skills tested to the limit, she must participate in the dangerous event, Starfall . . . or go home. Broke. Alone. With a shattered heart. So not fun.
And then as if that’s not bad enough? Brenna discovers a plot that could spell disaster for everyone she holds dear. And no one believes her.
Can she prevent a bloody government takeover? And what will become of Brenna’s broken heart?

J. M. Hackman loves thunderstorms, bookstores, and happy endings. She’s never met a reading nook she didn’t like and prefers soul talk to small talk. When she’s not writing, she spends time with her two munchkins and her handsome husband who supports her in this crazy profession. Her days are filled with writing stories, consuming massive quantities of dark chocolate, and looking for portals to other worlds. You can find her at

Missing Out

I feel like I have been missing out! Like I have been living in complete and total darkness and have no one but myself to blame. It starts with Mermaids. You heard it…or read it right…Mermaids. Did I know there were these beautiful and sometimes frightening stories filled with these beautiful creatures? Did I even look to see? What planet have I been living on? The answers are no, no, and Rachel’s world I suppose.
This is a problem that must be remedied quickly. So for those of you who see this hit me up and tell me your favorite Mermaid tale ASAP! In the mean time I will be hiding my face until I read a few of these sweet aquatic tales to bring me up to date in the world of fantasy bookeriy.
Until next time…

God Bless,

And breathe…

Over a year ago I was a discouraged writer wondering if a publisher would ever represent me. Fortunately for me the wait is over. The Water Cave has been out just shy of two weeks and it still does not seem real. No matter how many times I wanted to quit trying there was a still small voice in my head urging me to push on. For those of you who write you know what a devastating blow it can be to have your writing rejected, even if you know it is bound to happen. You are left vulnerable to what someone may say about the very thing you have poured your heart into.

But through the rejection, discouragement, and trials there were many of you who kept me going. For those of you who have supported me, this post is for you. Thank you for being there during my frustrations, my insecurities, my failure, and even during my triumphs. Because of your kindness I can now breathe and push onward to the next step in this amazing journey.

Until next time…

God bless,



It is finally here! I never thought this day would come but God led me, I followed, and He remained loyal. It is an amazing feeling to be here with this piece of work that took many hours, days, months, and years of my time. Never give up on a dream, especially when that dream is lead by God.
