Well hi there! Come on in, I've got the coffee brewing, or do you prefer tea? I share a hunk of Northern California land with my husband, three kids, and a red Rottweiler named Paco.

I like to write about realistic characters in unreal worlds. The question I ask myself when I sit down at the keyboard is: how can I make this next scene a whole lot of fun to read?

Now that we're chummy, tell me what you thought of my novel, "Tenderfoot."

Sometimes I write on my "side project" or I write a backstory that will never make it into the book. I'll work on another chapter besides the one I'm blocked on. And if that doesn't work, I take my dog for a walk.(less)

I received an ARC copy from my friend and writing colleague, Michelle Keener. I don't usually read romance, but I have dipped my toe in a romantic novel or two. I'm familiar enough with what makes a solid, entertaining romance story and Keener's nove ...more

Abby Drinen liked a quote
To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
“When someone's been gone a long time, at first you save up all the things you want to tell them. You try to keep track of everything in your head. But it's like trying to hold on to a fistful of sand: all the little bits slip out of your hands, and then you're just clutching air and grit. That's why you can't save it all up like that.

Because by the time you finally see each other, you're catching up only on the big things, because it's too much bother to tell about the little things. But the little things are what make up life.”
