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.

So. I haven’t done as much reading this summer as I thought I would. A big reason for this is having deadlines on TWO books – one for first pass edits (LOVE BLIND – cover soon!), and one to turn in (A FOREVER THING – my Addams Family meets a John Hughes movie)

ANYWAY. The more I read, the more often I’m a third of the way into the book, and I’m not dying to open the pages and continue reading....

Why aren't more people talking about this book?
So very cool.
Great setting.
Fab cast of characters.
Super interesting plot.
LOVE.
THIS is what makes magical realism so spectacular.
Jolene Perry is on page 100 of 280 of Starry Nights: I'm trying to figure out why EVERYONE is not talking about this book. It's incredible.

I'm not even sure how I feel about this book.

There were times when I distinctly felt that she was responding to criticisms or theories from outside of her circle in her book.
Sometimes the writing was really annoying.
This story is fascinating, so I wa

“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

“As much as I should keep my heart in my chest, part of it runs away with him. And maybe that means part of his might be here with me.”
Jolene Perry, Dizzy

“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.

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

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
