My new novel, Dodgeball High, was just published by Eraserhead Press.
It was two years in the making and my first book since 2012. I think it’s my best. I know everyone says that about their new book, but I put a lot of hard work into it and I’m very proud of it. It’s about a teenager who starts a...Read more of this blog post »
Hari pertama bulan Januari. Musim dingin seharusnya berada pada puncaknya. Namun, tak ada awan, tak ada angin, tak ada kepingan salju berjatuhan.
Alih-alih, langit malah melukis sebuah aurora: ukiran warna hijau bak intan meliuk seperti asap dan sihir, berpadu dengan langit malam yang kelam, enam... Read more of this blog post »

Love is pushing the last thing
You loved out the window
Of your memory. Falling
And moving like blowing sand
On a dark day, it happens
Not to bodies but to souls
Looking for a way to sense
The world without tools
Or avatars. There’s no sadness
When souls fall, because we know
That’s how a soul fastens
Onto... Read more of this blog post »

If you frequent twitter or any number of romance blogs, you might have heard about the Kathleen Hale Fiasco. Yes, it’s such a Fiasco that it must be capped. Bolded. Underlined and italicized. I’m not linking to it, or her, because frankly SHE isn’t worth the attention.

Yes, I realize he’s adorable, but trust me, his momma? Not so much. She’s four hundred pounds of grumpiness who had a party in our trash box yesterday, literally tearing off the door (which you can see under the can) to get to our yummy garbage for her babies.

Bears repeating: If your writing is to hit the right note, allowing a reader to immerse herself in the story such that she develops the oh-so-lovely habit of giving in to just one more chapter, love on your edits. Embrace them. Feed them well. Give them plenty of exercise. And make sure they get...Read more of this blog post »
I’m thrilled to share the cover for my next release! One Kiss with a Rock Star comes out in TWO WEEKS, which damn, that’s soon. It’s a very sexy rock star book–in the same world as Three Nights with a Rock Star although it stands alone.

About six months ago, someone sent me a Tweet saying, “I am reading one of your books. I’m half-way through, and I don’t agree with it.”

Driving across the Navajo Nation. It’s early evening, and I’ve crossed the orange cliffs and am on the mesa with scrub brush and easy hills. Not a house in sight. Not a store, gas station, or even a fence to create boundaries. Not in the last 4o miles.
