I'm a pantser, not a plotter, so I didn't know I'd use that idea for the last installment of my trilogy (18 Thoughts--coming Jan. 2015!) until I got to the end of the second book, 18 Truths. And from that idea, I got my title, which fit since book one is 18 Things. It's funny how I only knew the title for book 1 when I got the contract for my trilogy, but all the 'th' titles matched perfectly to what each novel is about :-)(less)

Last night when I tried to think of something to blog about today, I had nothing. I felt defeated, and my heart was heavy. These past six weeks haven’t been easy. If you follow this blog, you might recall how I recently got in touch with my best friend from childhood (you can read about that divine intervention here). Basically, I got fan mail from agirl named Kerri this summer, which lead me t...
