I don’t know about you, but I love hearing about how authors got their ideas!
Inspiration for DOMINO EFFECT:
DOMINO EFFECT is the last book The Effect Series. The Effect Series is a spinoff from the TRUST Series. You meet Adam Ryker, from RIPPLE EFFECT (book 1 of the 2 book series), in the PROMISE ME. Adam is the sexy club owner of Club Envy who has a partner named Brandt Maddox. From the moment I introduced Adam in PROMISE ME, I was drawn to him and had to write his story.
As I was writing RIPPLE EFFECT, I knew Brandt’s story had to be told too. He lost his love—not any love—but his soul mate. DOMINO EFFECT is the journey of Brandt and Nikola finding each other.
While RIPPLE EFFECT is about two battered souls finding each other and breaking through their self-imposed walls, DOMINO EFFECT is about fighting for the love you had and can never be replaced.
At the end of DOMINO EFFECT there’s a note to the readers that explains why this book is near and dear to me. I shed every emotion while writing this book. There are places I had to step away because the tears were blurring my vision to the point I couldn’t see my computer screen.
Part of me wishes I was just starting out on Brandt and Nikola’s journey. I loved every part of their story with the raw beauty that sprung from it.
Kristin Mayer is a wife, a proud mother, and a full-time Analyst and Import Manager. Since an early age, she has always enjoyed reading and writing. While visiting her father one weekend, he suggested that she should take up writing again. With family and a career, she didn’t give it a lot of thought, until a story entered her mind and wouldn’t leave. It just kept forming and developing over a couple of months.
At the beginning of 2013, she decided to sit down and write it all down, but she kept it to herself. One sentence developed into two, and before she knew it, she had the makings of a novel.
Kristin tries to live life to the fullest during every moment. She loves to travel and meet new people. She holds a degree in International Business and uses it daily in her job. Kristin now adds “author” on her list of jobs, and feels very blessed and thankful.
Domino Effect Synopsis:
One small movement can impact the rest of your life, like a set of dominoes lined up one after another. It’s not until you step back and see the big picture that you realize the damage you’ve done…

He lost his love—not just any love, but his soul mate.
Nikola Kingston has worked hard to keep the past in the past while she focuses on her career and spending time with her grandmother. On a random night, she runs into the one man who will forever hold her heart captive. Her heart knows she still loves Brandt, but her mind cannot forget the dreadful night that cost her the love of her life.
Will the domino effect of Brandt’s and Nikola’s decisions be too much to overcome? Or will the love they never thought they would get back have an everlasting effect?
