Award winning author, LJ Evans, lives in the California Central Valley with her husband, child, and the terrors called cats. She's been writing, almost as a compulsion, since she was a little girl and will often pull the car over to write when a song lyric strikes her. A former first-grade teacher, she now spends her days reading and writing, as well as binge-watching original shows like Ted Lasso, A Discovery of Witches, Veronica Mars and Stranger Things.

If you ask her the one thing she won’t do, it’s pretty much anything that involves dirt—sports, gardening, or otherwise. But she loves to write about all of those things, and her first published heroine was pretty much involved with dirt on a daily basis. Which is exactly what LJ loves abo

The story starts at Ava's dad's beach house just like in the song. It was also inspired by Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher because I found this post of hers about their romance, and how she would never have thought when they were filming "That's 70 Show" that he would be the love of her life. Plus, he says all kinds of sweet things about her, too. It all came together in my head about dreams and missed chances.(less)

L.J. Evans Writing about people who live life resiliently is what I love to do. But it's hard in the real world to accept ourselves for all our visible and invisible scars. I hope you find a way to love yourself a little better today.
