About this author

I wear juvenile T-shirts, worn-out chucks, and eat too much chocolate. I write. A lot. I make up words, drink Shirley Temples, and suffocate a little without my iPod.

Also.
I only rate books I loved.

I took a class by agent Tricia Lawrence at my local SCBWI this fall on social media, and it was easily the best class on social media I’ve ever taken.


Before I tell you the BIGGEST thing I learned there, I’m going to tell you the VERY few things I’ve learned along the way:


1. Only blog when you really, actually, have something to say. I used to blog on a 5-day a week schedule. And when I cut down...

This is EXACTLY what I wish we saw more of in NA.

Early twenties, trying to figute out who they are and what they want and making these big decisions that have LASTING consequences.

The setting in this book was just GORGEOUS.

Tavin's head was a great place to be.

I LOVE authors who can write nice guys that still know how to fight ;-)

So, there was this one twist that when it happened, I was like, okay, yeah... I knew there was SOMETHING here... But it was still good.

“He’s the need and the sparks and the laughter, and he touches my heart in a way it’s never been touched before. It’s terrifying and so honest it makes me dizzy.”
Jolene Perry, Dizzy

“Because brothers don’t let each other wander in the dark alone”
Jolene Perry, My Heart for Yours

“We only see what's close to us, but if we allow ourselves to simply feel, and not see, we can understand so much more.”
Jolene Perry, The Next Door Boys

“A laugh jumps out of my mouth, surprising me. I can’t even remember the last time I laughed and it puts me on edge. I suddenly want to do the same thing to her. Let her see how it feels to teeter on that cliff.”
Nyrae Dawn, Charade

“Everything’s not always black and white, Princess. Sometimes we have to do shit because there’s not another choice. Maybe you should think about that before you snub your nose at me.”
Nyrae Dawn, Charade

“But when he smiles? Really smiles, it’s perfect. Like toothpaste commercial, boy-next-door beauty that makes it really hard to be pissed at him.”
Nyrae Dawn, Charade

“There’s no talking. No laughing. Nothing but eager hands and sad eyes.”
Nyrae Dawn, Charade

“Colt lies on my bed and pulls me down behind him. I expect him to go for my clothes, but instead he kisses me again.
“Blanket.” I mutter, between kisses.
“If you’re cold I’m doing something wrong.”

Stephanie I just wanted to say thank you so much for sending me the extra book because the original was a little late getting to me. It was absolutely unnecessary but I greatly appreciate it. I can not wait to read it. Spill over sounds just as good Manipulation.

Thanks for the add also!


Christina Lyn Thanks for adding me Joleen!


Lucinda Dear Jolene,
I would like to thank you for being my friend here on GoodReads, which is an honor and a delight. It is such a brilliant site where one is able to converse with so many likeminded people including authors and readers, writers and book bloggers. I look forward to future book discussions with you.
Kind Regards
Lucinda x

Fred I just love you Jolene, and your lovely books, so rich and dark and deep and real. I honestly thought we were friends already, but I know you have a complex and systematic approach to Goodreads for your various personae, and am just happy to be part of it! xoxo
Fred
