Then I'll probably work on Riley's book, which would be part of the Johnson Brothers series. A book for Riley, Dawson, and Camden. Then possibly a series with Braxton at Eastbrooke. I have lots and lots of ideas. Not sure which one I will do next for sure. (less)

But then there is an epilogue that shows you 10 years later. So you get a big happily ever after picture with that. But I have lots of ideas for spinoffs. (less)

Nancy Drew is MY FAVORITE. It's what really got me loving reading. I literally read all 100 and however many there are. Then read them again to my daughter! I'll have to think about that. Ned was my first book boyfriend! My friend, Tiffany A White just released a mystery called Football Sweetheart. Maybe we'll have to collaborate on something.

It you hit the little plus sign next to the paperback word on Amazon, it will open up all the paperbacks available. The full color version is there. You can also message me and I can autograph and send you one. There is an inscription and autograph inside the Amazon version, it's just printed.


message 111: by Shanna

Shanna So I just finished Stalk Me and loved it! So different from That Boy but just as damn cute. I am pretty sure I want to be BFF's. I also want you to write a YA Romance/mystery series. A Veronica Mars meets Nancy Drew but sexy! Something smart and a little dark like Special Topics in Calamity Physics. So, that's obviously a lot to ask. Just putting the thought out there. Anyway, I look forward to Kiss me and I buying That Wedding asap! Keep them coming!

James Rollins is amazing!! He's a NYtimes best seller and has about 30 or so books out. He writes thrillers that have Six Sigma in them which is an elite special forces group. I wanted to be a spy when I was growing up, so I read lots of books like that. He also has some fantasy novels out as well. I got to meet him recently too!

If it weren't for people reading my book, I wouldn't have any reason to write. So I am thrilled to talk to anyone who has read my books (and particularly the ones that enjoyed them!!) I'm glad you liked them. That Wedding is my personal favorite. I just love how Jadyn got to grow in that book. How we got to see that Phillip wasn't as perfect as he seems and that it all worked out in the end. She went a little crazy when her parents died. "Living life to the fullest" allowed her to do whatever she wanted without worrying about it. It's a very good thing she lived with Phillip and Danny, or I think she may have been slightly destructive. But she figured it all out in the end :) Well, not the end. Next up is That Baby!!

Well, I would be no where if people didn't read my books. Plus, I just get so damned excited when people tell me they like it, or like the characters. I've recently heard a lot of authors talking about having bad experiences on goodreads, and maybe it's because nobody really knows me yet, but I've just had the total opposite. Sure, not everyone is going to love my books, but I don't love every book I have ever read either, so I think you just have to grow a bit thicker skin and respect everyone's opinions. And I'm thrilled to be your role model. Are you hoping to be a writer someday??

I'm thrilled that I made you boohoo (which is so one of my favorite Texas words!) because that means you got emotionally involved in the story, which is like every writer's dream!!

I'm glad that my books made you smile!! Phillip is pretty dreamy. I think there's a Phillip out there for everyone, you just gotta meet him. I think that's the thing I love about the books. They are both just about regular people you and I might be friends with. It makes the idea of meeting your own Phillip seem possible. And that's what modern fairy tales should be about!!!
