My second novel, THE GROWN UPS, will be published by William Morrow in January of 2015. It's the story of a group of friends over many years and what they mean to each other. It's about family, about love, about disappointment and heartache. It's about celebrating the small triumphs in life and hanging in there for those you love. It's about longing to be grown up - and then finding out what it really means to one.

THE SUMMER WE FELL APART was published by Harper Collins in January of 2010. It was chosen as a TARGET BREAKOUT BOOK.

I love the cover as well. The talented designers at HarperCollins/William Morrow, especially Julia Gang, really created a thing of beauty! The hidden garden nook does speak to possibilities - a party about to happen, perhaps, an intimate gathering of friends. When I first saw this particular cover I wanted to step right in - and while there were other equally beautiful contenders, I knew this would be the one. As far as genre goes - I suppose The Grown Ups would fall into literary fiction or women's fiction. Again, thanks for asking. Happy reading! (less)

I'd get them to school each morning and come back and ignore the chaos of breakfast dishes and laundry and go to my desk. I wrote whether I felt like it or not and yes, some days were better than others. But after a while I began to see the pages pile up. My daughters are now off working and in college and I still do the same thing every single morning. So, I guess that's my way of saying I don't believe in writer's block. (less)

'REALITY FICTION': Ripped-From-The-Headlines by Elizabeth Searle

Please welcome Elizabeth Searle to the blog. She's a fantastic writer, a contributor to a new anthology from Other Voices Books, Men Undressed and the author of Girl Held In Home from New Rivers Press. Her voice is fresh and funny and satiric and somber. Elizabeth Searle has it all -- and I'm thrilled to have her here.
