738 DAYS, my first adult romance, received a starred review from Publishers Weekly: “Readers will long remember the love story between these two complex characters.”
738 DAYS is also now available in audio!
FOR THIS LIFE ONLY is my first young adult contemporary novel. It draws heavily on my personal experience as a pastor’s kid. I hope you’ll check it out!
Kirkus Reviews says, “Kade’s contemplation of life and the afterlife is unflinching, and Jace’s journey through his grief is messy, raw, and, above all, real.”
Bonus Content: WILL’S NEW APARTMENT. I’m so excited to share it with you guys. I get lots of questions about what happened to Will and Alona after the last book, Body & Soul, and there are some answers in this.
STARLIGHT NIGHTS is available for request on Netgalley! ❤️ Confirmed today. Please go and request it! I love this book, and I hope you will too.

Wyatt in a rare moment of snuggling. My facial expression is “concentrating on taking a picture one-handed before Wyatt runs away!”

Made peanut butter cookies yesterday. My job as a kid was always to pack the brown sugar into the measuring cup for my mom. And I still enjoy that part of the process–and the perfection of packed brown sugar popping out like the first building block of a sand castle.
We’re back at the Halloween-themed restaurant. Husband doesn’t seem particularly by giant skeleton looming over him. Or maybe he hasn’t noticed yet! 😈
The second pic is my menu this morning. Appropriate given my Titanic obsession.
The first short story I ever wrote was about the sinking. My heroine didn’t make it. Survivors were beating her off the side of the lifeboat with oats, as they feared she’d tip it. I had–and still have–a bit of a macabre side.
Battle scars. :) I remember asking my mom when my “pencil bump” (the raised callus on my middle finger from holding a pen or pencil) would go away. She told me it would start to fade after I was done with school.
Which probably would have been true if I stuck to writing on the computer, but I don’t.
Hand-writing notes on a story makes them clearer to me in a way that typing them doesn’t. I have notebooks full of handwritten notes for every book I’ve written (and several I haven’t).
So my (ugly) pencil bump remains, getting particularly red and awful after a long day of notes. ✍️ But that’s a price I’m willing to pay for the joy of a fresh notebook, a new pen, and time to think!
Does anyone else still have theirs?
