I love books--both reading and writing them. When I'm not reading or writing, you can find me hanging out with my husband and four sons. At any given time, at least one of the 6 of us is up to no good.:)

My books: NIL, NIL UNLOCKED and NIL ON FIRE are out now; NIL REMEMBERED is a recently released free ebook prequel. Join the #NILtribe...we have cool snacks.:)

I'm so excited too! I'm not sure whether there will be a third...I have an idea I'm playing with so we'll see! I'm going to write it and see what I think.:) It could stop at NIL UNLOCKED, but I also think there could be a third. But there wouldn't be a fourth, unless I went backward in time, I think. Like a prequel.:)(less)

Hi Katrina!:) Thank you for your kind words and all the NIL love!:)

NIL was born in Hawaii, on the big island. My hubby had won a work trip, and it was our first real getaway from our four boys, EVER. As we left the airport after landing, we drove through miles of ancient lava fields. Broken red rock stretched endlessly on each side, gorgeous and desolate. No roads, no buildings, no people–just the eerie sound of wind blowing over the rocks. I remember thinking how much it all looked like an alien planet, and thinking how creepy it would be to wake up there, alone. And I remember thinking how scary it would be as a teenager to not have a clue where you were or how you how got there, and making things worse, what if–because isn’t this every person’s worst nightmare?!–you woke up naked? NIL was born in that moment. That barren-red-rock visual locked in my head, and that's what Charley sees when she first wakes up in Nil. I wrote the first 20K words in the next week and NIL flew from there.

Thanks for the awesome question!:)

It’s Spooky Season!!!

Happy October sweet readers!

Fall is awesome, isn’t it? I love all that October brings. Pumpkins, a deluge of pumpkin everything (no Nabisco--I do not think pumpkin spice Oreos are a good call lol), crisp air, changing leaves, and of course--SPOOKY READS!

All month long over on my Instagram account I’m featuring my favorite #spookyreads... like these!

“Luck is personal; we all have our own. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad, but it's yours, and it follows you wherever you go...And luck can change, because as my nana always insisted, luck was a state of mind.”
Lynne Matson, Nil

“Of course I'd hallucinate a zebra. Why couldn't I dream up Robert Pattinson or, better yet, a river of Gatorade?”
