Thanks for visiting my page. A few words of explanation about how I use Goodreads:

I accept friends here, and I also respond to "Ask the Author" questions.

I find it difficult to rate books with stars, or to review friends' books. I do have a few shelves of books here on Goodreads, listing some books you might enjoy: one shelf for poetry, one for contemporary realistic YA books, etc. On my blog, http://writerjenn.livejournal.com/, I sometimes recommend books using the "recommended read" tag.

Hi, Nia! Thanks; I'm glad you liked The Secret Year.
I would love for it to be made into a movie. I'm not a filmmaker myself, so that depends on whether a producer would be interested. I'm open to that. (less)

Later in life, when I discovered hiking, I also wanted to include outdoor scenes--especially on mountains--in a book. The ideas came together in Until It Hurts to Stop.(less)

I just finished Delia Ephron's book of personal essays, Sister Mother Husband Dog. A quote that stood out to me:

"All I want is for someone not to change something I love. All I want is for someone to keep it simple."

She's talking about the relentless march of technological upgrades, about which I agree--I don't see the point of arbitrarily moving buttons from the left side of the screen to the... Read more of this blog post »

I really appreciate your comments. Thank you.


Maggie You're welcome. Thank YOU for writing it!! I finished it yesterday in one gulp. I'm gonna reread it today. Can I just say that almost everything that the characters were going through resonated with me? I've been having weird relationship issues too and this book helped put a lot of things in perspective, especially in the end. It's really an awesome book. I cried and laughed and I didn't want it to end. I can't wait to read whatever you write next :)

Thank you, Maggie!



Maggie It's raining in California right now and I'm curled up on my couch with a cup of tea and The Secret Year. It's amazing! I can't put it down. I love Julia and Colt's mom -- they're so funny and REAL! The dialogue is so right on, and Colt's voice is actually believable. I've read some YAs narrated by a male protagonist and they didn't always sound like teenage boys, but Colt really does. I just wanted to tell you that :)
