Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words is happy to have SJD Peterson here today talking about her latest release Remember When.  Welcome, Jo!



Remember When

Remember When, is all about second…actually, third chances. Nelson and Luke are best friends having grown up living next door to each other. They had big plans and dreams none that include marriage or being tied down and everything to do with the freedom of the road and the rodeo circuit. Problem is, neither have ever been on a horse and at thirteen it’s their parents and a job opportunity across the country that throws a wrench into childhood desires.

I was about thirteen when I decided I was going to spend my life raising horses and hell, maybe I would have even joined the rodeo. I was in awe of the barrel racers. At fourteen, I received my first horse and it didn’t take but one hard winter to have me questioning my dreams.  Like Nelson and Luke, I never joined the rodeo, but plenty of other dreams did come true.

Good Luck




Life is simple and hopeful in youth. Luke and Nelson are best friends exploring their budding sexuality. They have big plans for the future, and nothing can stand in their way or tear them apart—except a family move that puts a continent between them.

Ten years later Luke and Nelson meet again, but nothing is simple anymore. As strong as the attraction remains, obligations and expectations come between them as Luke is forced to honor family responsibilities over the desires of his heart.

Impossibly, fate sees fit to offer them a last opportunity to see what might have been. Will the third time be the charm, or is trust so badly broken it is impossible to repair? Can they recapture the innocent love they once knew and make up for all the wasted years? In a love story that spans half a lifetime, two friends destined for each other will have to fight hard for their happily ever after.


Meet Jo Peterson

SJD Peterson, better known as Jo, hails from Michigan. Not the best place to live for someone who hates the cold and snow. When not reading or writing, Jo can be found close to the heater checking out NHL stats and watching the Red Wings kick a little butt. Can’t cook, misses the clothes hamper nine out of ten tries, but is handy with power tools.
