Stephanie wrote her first novel in second grade about a boy heart who falls in love with a girl heart, only to learn her “heart” was already taken.

She's involved in the Austin, Texas chapter of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and is cofounder of Literary Lonestars, a Facebook group dedicated to Texas bloggers and authors. Stephanie will be featured in the upcoming Dear Teen Me anthology from Zest Books, releasing in October 2012. She lives in Austin, TX with her husband and is currently seeking representation.

He's already used you as bait once, and that was just because you were my best friend's sister. Think how much danger you'll be in if we keep this up. He'll know, he'll find out. He'll try and get me through you."

J. I am up late and bored and pimping my GR account a little better. :) Hi! *waves*


Carrie (Care) Thanks for the info! I'm definitely going to read it. I was trying to wait until the softcover came out though. I've been buying too many books lately and hardcovers are so expensive. I don't mind when it's a series I already love, but for a first book in a series, I'm hesitant. And unfortunately library doesn't have any books I have on my TBR list.
