Thank you for visiting my author's page.
This question is one I had to think about for a minute. There are so many good/bad and dysfunctional fictional couples! My knee jerk reaction is Noah and Allie from Nicholas Sparks' The Notebook.
I love their love. It's one of those books that grabbed me and left me craving that type of devotion and passion. I also love characters that love to write (the letters from Noah, Allie's journal, etc.) As well as a social stigma that leaves you rooting for the underdog. Although I haven't seen the movie, the book remains one of my all time favorites!
Of course I also love Gaius and Elizabeth of my novel, The Sinners' Club especially as I format the sequel to their love affair.
Thanks again for the question. Keep reading!(less)

Harriet – My Review of the Movie

I cried the entire 125 minutes of the movie Harriet. It’s well done but it is the opposite of a “feel-good” movie. It is a feel horrible movie (because it is true). After more than a year of research for my book Trials & Tribulations of Modesty Greene, I felt emotionally vested. My book is...

A fun MG story with a brave, sassy and independent female protagonist.
After Constance's mother dies, she runs away with a traveling circus. Maybe not the best idea as she finds herself running from it too, and following her dream to become a writer.
