So. My very cool granddad passed away. I’m going to miss him terribly. I looked up to him so much and have always wanted to write as well as him. The upside was that I got to spend the weekend with family that I don’t see often.


My kids start school in ONE WEEK. I’m both sad and excited, making me wonder if things are always mixed. I’m looking forward to having TIME TO WRITE but I’m sad about the schedule and making two lunches and two breakfasts every day…


THREE – books…

I’ve barely read anything. I’m working on THE SUMMER OF CHASING MERMAIDS which is super fun but by the time I’ve made it home lately, I just CRASH. I’ve been to the bookstore three times lately and have bought nothing for myself because I own so many books I’m excited about reading. Dire times, people…



Might be a wee bit obsessed with SUPERNATURAL. How did I not trust so many people telling me I’d love that show? I love that show. Started season 4 last night.


FIVE – what I’m working on…

Got my cover for Love Blind. It’s simple and perfect, and I’ll share soon. Am excited about my next YA that Albert Whitman bought (fall 2016). I’m SUPER happy that my little novella under Jolene Betty Perry is selling so well (Mismatched In Love: Almost Cinderella) because I love it when I write something for fun and people have fun reading it.

SIX – HAS TO BE LOVE IS OUT IN HARDBACK!!! The ebook will be available September 1st! SOOOO excited/terrified to have Clara’s story in the world.


What’s everyone else been up to?

  1. Sorry about your grandfather. Did you say he was a writer? What did he write?

    Wait–So when school starts you have to ‘start’ making 2 sets of breakfasts and lunches a day? Haven’t you been feeding them breakfast or lunch this summer? Or did I misread what you wrote. 🙂

    I’ve seen the little TV Guide blurbs about the Supernatural shows many times and often they look interesting, but I’ve never watched it. Maybe I should. Start at the beginning though. 🙂

    Has to Be Love is just beautiful. Love the colors and font. It’s very cool. 🙂

    1. I don’t feed my children in the summer. They forage in the pantry 😉 And they’re on different schedules, so I can’t make ONE breakfast that will feed both of them. AND digging for snacks or tossing something in the oven is a whole WORLD away from packing an actual LUNCH. lol.

Hey there!! *waves* Thanks for chatting!
