Huntley Fitzpatrick grew up dreamy and distracted in coastal Connecticut. She flourished in a family of bookworms where everyone always had their nose in a book. She kept an exhaustively thorough journal which frightened her boyfriends but has proved very useful in her career as a writer. Her debut contemporary Romance, MY LIFE NEXT DOOR, was published in June of 2012 by Penguin-Dial for Young Readers. Now she laughs with and eavesdrops on her six children who provide her with perspective and material. She is represented by the amazing Christina Hogrebe of the Jane Rotrosen Agency.

Huntley Fitzpatrick More than a cameo. Jase is Tim's best friend now. It's fun writing him from a different perspective. And Sam, of course, is there too.

Not that I don't think the cover artist is very talented. But the boy doesn't look like he plays football and Jase never wore an oxford shirt (I'm ridiculously picky about clothing choices) (less)

MY LIFE NEXT DOOR (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: “One thing my mother never knew, and would disapprove of most of all, was that I watched the Garretts. All the time.” The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, numerous, messy, affectionate. And every day from her balcony perch, seventeen-year-old Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them…until one summer evening Jase Garrett climbs her trellis and changes everything. As the two fall fiercely in love and stumble through the awkwardness and awesomeness of first romance, Jase’s family makes Samantha one of their own—even as she keeps him a secret from her disapproving mother and critical best friend. Then the unthinkable happens, and the bottom drops out of Samantha’s world. She’s suddenly faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her? Or is it time she saved herself?

“Is Jase already gonna marry you?”

I start coughing again. “Uh, No. No, George. I’m only seventeen.” As if that’s the only reason we’re not engaged.

“I’m this many.” George holds up four, slightly grubby fingers. “But Jase is seventeen and a half. You could. Then you could live in here with him. And have a big family.”

Jase strides back into the room, of course, midway through this proposition. “George. Beat it. Discovery Channel is on.”

George backs out of the room but not before saying, “His bed’s really comfortable. And he never pees in it.”

“Maybe if I can just sleep for a hundred years, I'll wake up in a better story.”

“You have to kiss me," I find myself saying.
"Yeah." He leans closer. "I do.”

Topics Mentioning This Author

“There is no pretending," Jace said with absolute clarity. "I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I'll love you then.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Glass

“I don't want to be a man," said Jace. "I want to be an angst-ridden teenager who can't confront his own inner demons and takes it out verbally on other people instead."
"Well," said Luke, "you're doing a fantastic job.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Ashes

“The plain state of being human is dramatic enough for anyone; you don't need to be a heroin addict or a performance poet to experience extremity. You just have to love someone.”
Nick Hornby, How to Be Good

“It is very risky. But each time a child opens a book, he pushes open the gate that separates him from Elsewhere.”
Lois Lowry

“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”

Jaclyn1957 HI, HUNTLEY IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME.

I REMEMBER WORKING WITH YOU WHILE WE CRITIQUED *MY LIFE NEXT DOOR,* AND ENJOYED IT VERY MUCH. TOLD YOU IT WAS A WINNER.

YOU WERE A BIG HELP IN CRITIQUING MY BOOKS. *THE RING* I REMEMBER YOUR HELP, NOT SURE WITH *THE WHIMS OF FATE.* BOTH, I'M HAPPY TO SAY, ARE IN PRINT AND ON AMAZON.

LOU SAYS I TEND TO GET CARRIED AWAY WHILE WRITING AND FORGET EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE. :-)

I'M REWRITING *AUTUMN LOVE AS THE EDITOR STATED THE HEROINE WASN'T RELATEABLE. SO I HAVE TO WORK ON MAKING HER BELIEVEABLE. :-)

ALSO WORKING ON *FOREVER SIMI.*

FOUND DUST ON THE DINNING ROOM TABLE AND WRITTEN ON IT WAS: "DUST ME!" I LEFT THE DUST CLOTH, AND WENT BACK TO THE COMPUTER. LOOKING FORWARD TO YOUR NEXT BOOK. TAKE CARE.

JACLYN
