A year ago, Ashlee lost her mother in a car accident, leaving only her and her Step-father to take care of each other and their dog kennel business.

Never Been Texted is a sweet, cute take on Cinderella. Ashlee just wants her stepfather to notice her – and a phone – for her birthday. When she gets neither she is sorely disappointed. But when she happens upon a phone deal rather mysteriously, things start to get strange. First of all, she’s getting texts from “Prince” – and though they’re obviously not meant for her, she is intrigued. But then the phone starts showi

I enjoyed this book on many levels, including it's contemporary appeal, it's nod to versions of the Cinderella fairy tale and the fun information and dog references. Highly recommended!

Ashlee’s mother died a year ago and she lives with a caring yet distant stepfather. She’s never had a cell phone and he promises her one for her birthday, yet he forgets! She takes matters into her own hands and gets a great deal on a phone. The phone seems to malfunction with sound and light. Also, on it she receives text messages from the most popular boy in town.

The phone number must surely have belonged to the boy’s girlfriend. Derrick is the son of the mayor and the boyfriend of Beatrice, a

Ashlee lost her mom and began pushing everyone away except her best friend and her dog. All she wanted for her birthday was a phone, which her step-dad promised to get her and then he forgot. When she goes out and happens upon a magical store and the phone she always wanted, but can only have for a month she jumps at the chance. Then she starts getting texts from someone named “Prince” and when her friend messages back agreeing to meet she sees her “Prince” is the mayors son and the school queen ...more

This is a cute endearing story with a modern Cinderella type twist. It's a perfect book for teens and pre-teens, animal lovers (especially dogs), and the romantic.

Ashlee longs for a phone but when her stepdad misses her birthday, she finds a wish store she never had seen before and a strange guy gives her a mauve phone. Soon she gets her very first text from a boy who signs it "Prince". It's a case of mistaken identity and even when they do meet Ashlee is too shy to give him her real name. The c

I started writing at 8 years old and when I speak to kids at schools or libraries I show them the stories I wrote as a child. I loved mystery series like Judy Bolton and Nancy Drew, and my DREAM was to write a series of my own. This happened when My Sister the Ghost was published by Avon books in 1994.

Since then I’ve been fortunate to write other series like The Seer, Dead Girl trilogy, Strange En
