I write novels that explore friendship, self-discovery and the challenges life brings us, leavened with a touch of humor. I'm proud of all my books and perhaps best known for my "Ten Beach Road" titles including the USA Today bestsellers, Ten Beach Road and The House on Mermaid Point, and for While We Were Watching Downton Abbey.

Hi Debbie!

Yes! I'm actually working on another Ten Beach Road novel right now and I'm having a blast being back on Pass-a-Grille with Maddie, Avery, Nikki, Kyra and crew! It will be out next spring.

I'm also very excited that my June 23 release A Week at the Lake will include bonus material -- they've included Christmas at the Beach, my Ten Beach Road novella, in the back. This is the first time it will appear in print!

Thanks so much for your interest in me and my books!

Description: A WEEK AT THE LAKE is the story of three women and the Adirondack reunion that transforms their friendship and their lives. Twenty years ago, Emma Michaels, Mackenzie Hayes, and Serena Stockton bonded over their New York City dreams.
