I always wanted to be a writer--from the moment I put fat pencil to brown-lined paper in second grade to write an elaborate story using all the spelling words on our list.

November Super Cover..marshmallows, anyone?

Here's the cover of my November Harlequin. Considering how hot it is right now in Arizona, this looks like so much fun...The book is fun, too, as these two people find a way to be together and love and raise their twin nieces. I've got an October book, too. This one is suspense from Entangled Ignite, the new name for their hot suspense imprint. Read more of this blog post »

Jess Walter is amazing. He hasn't written a word I didn't love. These short stories, while sad, are also life-affirming and full of a quiet joy and hope. Highly recommend.
