Hi, there! I'm Steph, and I wrote ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS, LOLA AND THE BOY NEXT DOOR, and ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER. I also edited (and contributed a short story to) a romantic holiday anthology called MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME and its companion anthology SUMMER DAYS AND SUMMER NIGHTS. My next YA novel will be horror—a teen slasher published by Dutton.

The Twits by Roald Dahl
“If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”
Roald Dahl

♥Rachel♥ Hi Stephanie. Thanks for the add. Official fan-girl here! Loved Anna and the French Kiss. I was crushed with pain for Anna, having to think of Etienne & Ellie together at night, as Rashmi said, "doing it". Then I was soaring when Etienne told Anna, "Will you please tell me you love me? I'm dying here." You're an amazing writer! Looking forward to more highs and lows with Lola and the Boy Next Door.
