I have found that there is only one thing better than reading, and that is writing. I am always torn between the two. I am also frequently torn between chocolate and coffee. However, I emphatically do not like the month of February, lies, and flies. For me, bravery is defined by the courage to do what we fear the most. I live in Connecticut with my husband and two children. Drop a few lines. I would love to hear from you.

It's a spin-off of FOG. I'm hoping for a September/October release. I'll have a synopsis soon.

“You’re the purest, most genuine thing that ever happened to me.- Caleb”
L. Duarte, Fall Out Girl

“I wasn’t brave, or strong, or badass. And all those quirky lines I fed you? A foolish attempt at sounding strong.
The truth is: I was just a lost girl. Someone who was clueless on how to get out of the hole she’d dug for herself.
I didn’t want to be the way I was. I wanted to be normal.”
L. Duarte, Fall Out Girl

“I hated that he made me feel. But, mostly, I worried about the haze clouding my mind whenever he was around.”
L. Duarte, Fall Out Girl

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
Mahatma Gandhi, All Men are Brothers: Autobiographical Reflections

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Albert Einstein

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
Albert Einstein

“Chance is perhaps the pseudonym of God when he does not want to sign.”
Théophile Gautier

“We should trust people to be exactly what they have proven themselves to be, no more and no less.”
Ryan Winfield, South of Bixby Bridge
