About this author

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

I find it difficult to rate books with stars, or to review friends' books. Therefore, I don't list reviews or ratings here. Rather, if I like an author's work, I will become a Goodreads fan and list him/her as a "favorite author" here. I also have one shelf listing some contemporary, realistic YA books that you might enjoy. On my blog, http://writerjenn.livejournal.com/, I do sometimes recommend books using the "recommended read" tag.

I accept fans and friends here, and browse the bookshelves.

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)

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 :)

Thank you, Maggie!



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 :)
