I'm the USA Today bestselling author of more than a dozen books. I've written in a number of genres: chick lit, romance, suspense and young adult. My debut novel, I Do (But I Don't) was made into a Lifetime Original movie.

I grew up in Mesquite, Texas, which for those of you who like livestock shows, is the home of the Mesquite Rodeo. Ironically, Mesquite was named after Mesquite trees, only none of them now exist in the city, which is about fifteen minutes east of Dallas. No, I don't own a pair of cowboy boots, although I do own quite an impressive collection of black shoes. My Dad is a third-generation Japanese-American, and my mom is a second-generation Texan who's mostly English, or at least claims to be because of her anglophile nature.

You can't force words that aren't coming. I usually head to gym, take a walk, or do something else to clear my head. Then, I come back to my computer -- hours, not days, later. If you wait days, you might never pick up your story again. Take a couple of hours away from your keyboard and then try to pick it up again. (less)

I'm only partly kidding. I'm wearing striped flannel ones as I type this right now. Actually, everything about being an author is great. I love that my job is to make things up. Any other job and that's ground for firing, but it's essential in my line of work.(less)

“True love is taking the risk that it won't be a happily-ever-after. True love is joining hands with the man who loves you for who you are, and saying, "I'm not afraid to believe in you.”
Cara Lockwood, I Do -- But I Don't

“...sometimes you just want the comfort of knowing that somebody really does care about you (even if they show it in peculiar ways).”
Cara Lockwood, I Do -- But I Don't

“No dates until you're sixteen. And no boyfriends, either.' I'm not quite sure how to tell Mom, but it looks like I don't just have one boyfriend. I have two.”
Cara Lockwood, Wuthering High
