About this author

Hello! I have written three novels - BETWEEN BALLOONS, THE ADORATION OF EMMA WYLDE, and THE TRUTH ABOUT LILLY BARNES. I am currently working on my fourth novel, MONA LOSER.
I’m obsessed with all things Jane Austen. I read a lot of YA but my all-time favorite is a cozy mystery. As far as teen books go I really love Stephanie Perkins, Sarah Dessen, Sara Zara, and Ann Brashares. As far as adult books go I love Sidney Sheldon (he will always have my heart), Stephen King, Sophie Kinsella, and Charlaine Harris.

When I’m not reading or writing I enjoy spending time with my husband, baking, and finding ways to meet Jimmy Fallon.


Here are the two places I blog from:

I have been dreading writing this post for quite some time. Here goes. Since January 2013 I have been working on As You Were and I’ve come to the realization that it’s just not working.

The three stars are my fault and not the authors. I think if my own personal story was more Park and less Eleanor I would have liked it a lot more. I wish there was an epilogue though.

Kimberly Russell is on page 150 of 325 of Eleanor & Park: This is hitting a little too close to home. So much so that I'm not enjoying it nearly as much as others.
