I read and write books for adults, young adults, tweens, and kids. I always love book recommendations, so please send them my way! I'm partial to contemporary romance, romantic comedy, funny/snarky voices, quirky characters, and original/funny/magical kids' books.

MOON SHADOW - my next novel for tweens - will be published by Aladdin/Simon & Schuster in Summer 2017.
