Happy #NationalGretchenDay! Don’t forget to put on your tiara today. Share your inner princess with the world!
My world changed at the stroke of midnight. No, I’m not Cinderella—she can suck it.
When fate stepped in and waved its magic wand, my destiny, or what I thought was my destiny had been altered. With a new found energy, I decided things needed to change.
This is my time. My turn to take life by the balls. No one will hold me back, yet one man will give me hope. This is my fairy tale, and I’ll write my own ending.
I’m Gretchen Prescott, and this is my story.
From the first day I met her, I knew she was special. She was taken; we were friends. When the dumbass didn’t realize what he had, he lost her. I suppose one man’s loss could be this man’s gain.
All I wanted was to hold her, be with her and make her mine. She deserves the best things in life, and I plan on giving them to her.
I’m Mason McDermott, and this is our story.

“A dream is a wish your heart makes”
Gretchen Prescott made her own classic story. No, this was not a Disney fairytale, but Charmed made its mark. Gretchen was stuck in a life she thought she wanted. She was in a relationship that no one in her family approved of. Gretchen is not a quitter. She put everything into her relationships. When those feelings weren’t exactly reciprocated, she decided to live life for HER. Mason McDermott was a family friend who always captured her. He was gorgeous to look at and had the most compassionate heart. He wanted one thing in his life and that was Gretchen Prescott. But, he couldn’t exactly make a move. She was still in a relationship. He was too much of a gentleman to put himself and herself in that position. But it was definitely hard for him..in many ways than one. New Year’s Eve is a holiday that is known for couples kissing at the stroke of midnight. What Gretchen thought would happen and what really happened were not what she expected. A video of that night would change her life and turn in upside down. It was her time to live the life she wanted. She went to California. It was really the perfect place. It was relaxing, chill, and had Wi-Fi. What more could you want? Mason? Yep, he was there too. Their friendship was always there and grew so much. Wine, bikinis, and sexy back and forth banter always seemed to confuse them even more. Should they cross the line? Was it too soon for her to be in a relationship? Gretchen was just starting to figure out her life when she woke up. This couldn’t have all been a dream..right? Are her feelings for Mason real? Everyone seemed to think they were the perfect couple that fairytales were based on. Mason and Gretchen’s love story was one for the storybooks. Charmed was a daydream I only wish I could visualize. It was a fantasy that had fireworks for days, sexual tension like no other, tiaras (my fave), and many decisions to be made. I love love loved this book. It is my favorite book of the Prescott Series hands down. Gretchen is feisty, hard working, yet unsure of some of her decisions. It took a dream to give her confidence in her choices and her LIFE. Joanne Schwehm, there is nothing that you cannot do. You are genius at your craft and continue to make me fall in love with every Prescott.
Family and friends are the most important things to Joanne. She enjoys meeting new people, traveling, reading, relaxing on a beach and shopping. She has an addiction to Coffee and Diet Coke; you may want to stand clear if she hasn’t had her daily intake!
Writing has been something that has been private and not shared until the day she decided to publish Unexpected Chance. Waking up one morning to the voices of Alex Logan and Aubrey Ryan changed everything!!
She is an avid sports fan especially when it comes to the New York Yankees & Dallas Cowboys. She also enjoys playing and watching golf.
She firmly believes when that unexpected chance comes, take it. Don’t let it pass you by. You never know what you could be missing.
