I watched an interview with Mike Meyers shortly before I sold my first book, at a time when I was ready to quit. The interviewer asked him what his secret to success was, and he simply replied, "I never quit." Wow. His words resonated with me, and I doubled up on my efforts to query agents and publishers. What happened? Shortly after I decided to dig in my heels, I sold three books in two genres and signed with my first choice agent. Dreams really do come true...as long as you don't give up.(less)

Thank you so much for your kind words and for your question. Broken Pieces was an emotionally draining book to write, but one that was extremely important to me. I wanted to honor my friend and the battle she fought, and I wanted to do so realistically but respectfully. I'd planned a different subplot, but when life took a turn, I realized I had the chance to use this book as a platform to share awareness. Thank you for requesting an ARC through NetGalley, and thank you for your thoughtful, lovely review!(less)

During a recent book club visit, we got to talking about choices, and dreams, and waiting. Why is it that we so often put off our dreams? Our goals? Our bucket list items? Yes, sometimes the wait is inevitable. The timing is off. The money is short. The goal seems wildly out of reach. But when is the timing ever perfect?
