It's a story about a small town's first female wrestler who is pressured to take an MMA fight against her ex's new girlfriend to save her family's home. She's trained by her former high school coach's son — a guy she has unfinished business with. He's going to hold her feet to the fire, push her past what she believes she's capable of, and reawaken the attraction she once felt for him all over again. This time, though, it will be finished.

All books that have been passed on to me and recommended by the loner. So, my hit list for this summer currently includes Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, Leaving Time by Jodie Picoult, Shanghai Girls by Lisa See and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

My editor said my new book Keeping Claudia has strong Pride and Prejudice feel to it. Though I've seen the 2005 movie with Keira Knightley, I'm embarrassed to admit, I've never read the book!(less)

Just forget it!

I would like to know who keeps moving my stuff? Things like my cell phone, glasses, and car keys constantly show up in unusual spots around the house.

Is it forgetfulness? Today's technology overloading my brain?

Whatever it is, it’s becoming a trend. Lately I've been reaching for words I cannot find. Names of people evade me. I get to the top of the stairs and suddenly can't remember why I clim Read more of this blog post »

“Focusing on what I want, and what I need to do to get it, seems like such a small change in mindset, but it’s made a huge difference. I feel almost … invincible.
~ Toby Faye”
Suzanne McKenna Link, Saving Toby

“If you give a writer a line, they'll take a paragraph…”
Suzanne McKenna Link

“I’d waited for this opportunity with Claudia for a long time—ever since elementary school when I tried to impress her on the monkey bars and woo her with my crayon drawings. But I couldn’t have been with her any sooner. You can’t expect someone to love a shadow.”
Suzanne McKenna Link, Keeping Claudia

“The best books come from someplace deep inside.... Become emotionally involved. If you don't care about your characters, your readers won't either.”
Judy Blume

“If you love what you do and are willing to do what it takes, it's within your reach. And it'll be worth every minute you spend alone at night, thinking and thinking about what it is you want to design or build. It'll be worth it, I promise.”
Steve Wozniak

“Everybody talks about wanting to change things and help and fix, but ultimately all you can do is fix yourself. And that's a lot. Because if you can fix yourself, it has a ripple effect.”
Rob Reiner

“I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.”
Oscar Wilde, The Happy Prince and Other Stories
