I grew up in Dallas, Texas, and after spending time in Austin, Chicago, New York, and Philadelphia I'm happy to call the beautiful city of San Francisco my home, where I live with my husband and puppy, Elvis Presley. I have a BBA from The University of Texas at Austin and an MBA from The Wharton School of Business. When not writing, I work in marketing for the packaged goods industry. I also spent three years studying improv comedy at Chicago's Second City and IO theater companies.

Thanks for the question. The best advice I got was to focus on doing the types of promo you like and are comfortable with (vs. spreading out to every social media avenue available.) So based on that, I focused on places where I personally enjoyed connected with people - specifically fellow writers and readers. I started a blog with some fellow writers I met at a work shop, started using twitter to connect with fellow writers and readers, built my facebook author page and website, and that was about it. Now that the book has lunched there's been more promo via my publisher (blog tours, interviews and a few upcoming signings) and I've leveraged the platforms I'd previously build to help get the word out. I've also participated in giveaways and contests that help connect me with potential readers (like the YA Scavenger Hunt, Goodreads and YABC) and I had a lunch party with friends and family (which was very fun!)

Hope that helps! And thanks again for the question.(less)

Traveling can be fun, and traveling with boys can be . . . well . . . wonderful, interesting, and fun!!

A few years back, the boys and I took a trip out West to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons.  The trip was challenging at times, but overall fun.  Our memories of that trip are some of the best because while we may not have appreciated some of things that happened at the time, we can go back an...
