I write novels that explore friendship, self-discovery and the challenges life brings us, leavened with a touch of humor. I'm proud of all my books and perhaps best known for my "Ten Beach Road" titles including the USA Today bestsellers, Ten Beach Road and The House on Mermaid Point, and for While We Were Watching Downton Abbey.

I went, appropriately enough, to Sunshine Elementary School where recess and art class sometimes took place on the beach, and the highlight of every school year was the annual fish broil.

Hi Debbie!

Yes! I'm actually working on another Ten Beach Road novel right now and I'm having a blast being back on Pass-a-Grille with Maddie, Avery, Nikki, Kyra and crew! It will be out next spring.

I'm also very excited that my June 23 release A Week at the Lake will include bonus material -- they've included Christmas at the Beach, my Ten Beach Road novella, in the back. This is the first time it will appear in print!

Thanks so much for your interest in me and my books!

A Week at the Lake (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Jun 02, 2015 12:01PM
Description: A WEEK AT THE LAKE is the story of three women and the Adirondack reunion that transforms their friendship and their lives. Twenty years ago, Emma Michaels, Mackenzie Hayes, and Serena Stockton bonded over their New York City dreams. Then, each summer, they solidified their friendship by spending time at their favorite lake, solving their problems over bottles of wine and gallons of ice cream. The tradition endured for years, until jealousy, secrets and life’s disappointments pulled them apart.

I barely made it through basic science and don't normally read science fiction. This is simply a great read. Period.

Absolutely wonderful

A riveting and deeply moving novel about loss and redemption with two incredibly strong women at its core. You won't want to miss this.

“Because I know what it's like to pour your heart and soul into a book, day after day after day, when it comes to the work of other authors, I either give them five stars -- or say nothing! I simply can't bring myself to do anything else.”
