Release Date: April 27, 2018

Genre: NA Romance




Two realizations deprive my lungs of life-sustaining breath when I step onto my back patio for the first time in two months. First, the August air is abnormally stifling in Kansas today. And second, Ridley Goss, also known as The Player, my brother's best friend, my childhood tormentor, the star of my daydreams, and the guy who-judging by his current position—can't keep his tongueout of WhitneyReidman's throat, is here. My chest aches. I'm sucking in my first deep breath since walking outside when a third realization punches me in the gut—life in Ellbury is exactly the way it was before I left. Welcome home, Reagan Meeks.


Chasing Cars is LIVE

This book y'all. THIS. BOOK.

When Michele suggested we base Chasing Cars and the Lessons We Learned in Finland of course I was all over it. I've always wanted to base one of my books there, but I've been hesitant. Finnish isn't a love language. It's one of the hardest to learn. And most people know nothing about Finland. How in the world was I going to write about Finland and give the people, the culture, the country justice? Well, I had a little help. My mom who was born and raised in Finland was at my beck and call. Thanks Mama.

This book is my blood. There's so much of me in it. Parts of my parent's love story. Parts of my grandparent's love story. A character that's a mixture of my mom and grandma. I LOVE THIS BOOKS SO MUCH.

But it's so much more than the Finnish aspect. It's a book about a woman who doesn't see her worth and a dedicated man willing to go any length to show her she is more than she sees.

This book tore me apart and put me back together while writing with Michele. There were no days of writer's block or lulls that we couldn't work through. We had a story that needed to be told and it flowed seamlessly. Those are the stories I know I was meant to write. It was so hard to say goodbye to these characters at the end. The time flew by WAY too quickly. I love Olle and Amber so much, and I hope you love them too.



On June 18, 1992, Flight 397 crashed off the coast of Long Island.

After Amber Pratt lost her parents, her life turned into a downward spiral. So, she did what any twenty-one-year-old would do; she quit her life to backpack across Europe.

Olle Holström was supposed to be a fling in the wilds of Finland. A detour. That is all it should have been.

It was so much more.

A Sweet Adult Contemporary Romance, this is the third book in the Paper Planes series. It can be read as a standalone, but books 1-3 follow the members of one family and is best read together to get the complete tale.
#1 Paper Planes and Other Things We Lost (YA)

So many stories, not enough time

I can't believe this year is almost halfway over! After quitting my full time job and becoming a full time writer in January, I had my book year planned out. But sometimes plans change and with a creative brain, who's a 100% pantster, I go where the inspiration goes. So, I figured it was time to give a little update!

You might be wondering what's coming after Chasing Cars and the Lessons We Learned releases on May 16th. I've got so many projects in the mix right now it's hard to tell which one will come out first! So, let's break it down a little.

I Could Be A Monkey is coming very soon. It's in the interior formatting stage right now. The hope is to have it available next month before Utopia Con! Cross your fingers and toes.

At this very moment, Michele and I are writing our novella for the 10 Things I Love About You box set coming this FALL. The story is unfolding into what could be something bigger and we're super excited about it! So be on the look out for that.

But before 10 Things I Love About You came to fruition, Michele and I were working on another story––one that we were almost done with!––and then completely reworked the story line on our road trip to Authors in the Bluegrass last month. We're still hoping to have this one completed before the end of the year, but we shall see!

For my solo books? Willowhaven #3, Stain, and Faylinn #5? Well, unfortunately those got put on the back burner. I still think about them and plot as ideas come to me, but writing with Michele has been where the inspiration is. And I know y'all want stories I love and care about, and don't force. Those books are still coming, I just can't tell you when.

The plan was to get all these books out before the end of the year, but I've got a lot going on personally. Between selling and building a house, moving to Utah (temporarily) at the end of the year to start IVF treatments, and other family and personal things, bear with me! There's still a lot of exciting things to come! Just might not be in the timeline I had planned.
