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!

THE DRESS that started it all!


 


This is ‘THE DRESS’ that was worn by my aunt, her cousins, and generations of my family’s brides. That I ‘loaned’ to a character. That led to the book that is now officially on sale!


Like all of my novels, My Ex-Best Friend’s Wedding deals with serious subjects, wrapped in humor. It revolves around Lauren and Brianna who first meet in kindergarten and discover they were born on the same day, w...

Twenty years ago, Emma Michaels, Mackenzie Hayes, and Serena Stockton bonded over their New York City dreams.

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Because I know what it's like to pour your heart and soul into a book, day after day after day, when it comes to the work of other authors, I either give them five stars -- or say nothing! I simply can't bring myself to do anything else.”
