New York Times Bestselling author of The Syrena Legacy series.

Grew up in a town called Niceville. No, seriously. And yes, everyone from Niceville is generally nice.

Let's see, things about me....My writer's cat is a mini wiener dog named Puckdoo. I can't walk in high heels, but I'm amazing at standing still in them. I'm the only person in Florida without a tan. I stole a car when I was 12 years old and drove across three state lines with it. Yeah. That's about it.

My books:
Of Poseidon
Of Triton
Of Neptune

Joyride

How To Lose A Bachelor

Degrees of Wrong (Pen name Anna Scarlett)

Nemesis (Coming soon!)

I call this writerly constipation because really you're not totally blocked--if you push hard enough at least a little will come out, amiright?

But what I do when I'm constipated is read. I read other authors who I look up to, who I want to emulate, and it really gets, ummmm, things flowing. It motivates me to be better, to live up to my own standards, to push through it.

Sometimes when you're reading, you'll see how an author solved a problem in his or her book and you'll have that epiphany on how to solve the problem in yours. (less)

It means that I'm not a fraud, that other people enjoy my work, and that I *can* entertain people if I try my best. (less)
