Lonely Hearts Day! Preorder now!


January 30th, 2024 my young adult romance novella comes out! Surprise! It's available to preorder now. What's a novella, you may ask. It's longer than a short story but shorter than a novel. It's about half the size of my typical novels. That's why we decided to offer it in ebook format only. I hope you love it just as much as my full length novels. I know I do! 

Book summary:

It isn’t that Scarlett Landry doesn’t believe in love, her parents’ relationship is perfect, after all. It’s just that she doesn’t think she should be forced to celebrate it. Forced to listen to terrible poetry and watch Valentine’s Day roses being distributed to everyone around her at school. If there is a relationship status that deserves its own holiday, it’s single-hood.

So, she enlists the help of her best friend, Jack Bowman, to throw a party for all the lonely hearts of their high school. She’s known Jack for years. He’s fun and nerdy and smart and will make the perfect co-host. There are two problems. One: the king and queen of school already throw a party on Valentine’s Day. Have for the last few years. And they are not fans of being dethroned. Two: when you become known for throwing a party to celebrate singles, you probably shouldn’t fall in love.

This fun, flirty YA contemporary romance novella, takes place over four Valentine’s Days. It follows the ups and downs of friendship, family, and falling in love.

Borrow My Heart out June 13th

 My latest book comes out in just a few days. I adore this cover and I hope you adore this book. 

When a girl overhears a guy getting verbally destroyed by his friends for being catfished, she jumps in to save the day—and pretends to be his online crush. A young adult romance from the critically acclaimed author of Places We've Never Been.

Wren is used to being called a control freak. She doesn’t care; sticking to the list of rules she created for herself helps her navigate life. But when a cute guy named Asher walks through the door of her neighborhood coffee shop, the rulebook goes out the window.

Asher is cute, charming . . . and being catfished by his online crush. So Wren makes an uncharacteristically impulsive decision—she pretends to be the girl he's waiting for to save him from embarrassment. Suddenly she’s fake-dating a boy she knows nothing about. And it’s . . . amazing.

It's not long before Asher has her breaking even more of her own rules.  But will he forgive her when he finds out she's not who she says she is? Wren's not so sure. . . . After all, rules exist for a reason.

My newest cover is here!! Isn't she beautiful? Cover by the amazingly talented Ana Hard

 Places we've never been will be out May 31st, but is available for pre-order now !! :) Can't wait for you to read it.

Here is the summary:

Norah hasn’t seen her childhood best friend, Skyler, in years. When he first moved away, they'd talk all the time, but lately their relationship has been reduced to liking each other’s Instagram posts. That’s why Norah can’t wait for the joint RV road trip their families have planned for the summer.

But when Skyler finally arrives, he seems...like he’d rather be anywhere else. Hurt and confused, Norah reacts in kind. Suddenly, her oldest friendship is on the rocks.

An unexpected summer spent driving across the country leads both Norah and Skyler down new roads and to new discoveries. Before long, they are, once again, seeing each other in a different light. Can their friendship-turned-rivalry turn into something more?

Have I mentioned I have a new book coming out May 4, 2021?! SUNKISSED!!! Here is the beautiful cover in case you haven't seen it yet. And I will include a description below. It's available now for pre-order, just follow any of these links: 
Or your local indie bookstore!

  Avery has always used music as an escape. But after her best friend betrays her, even her perfectly curated playlists can't help her forget what happened. To make matters worse, her parents have dragged her and her social-media-obsessed sister to a remote family camp for two months of "fun." Just when Avery is ready to give up on the summer altogether, she meets Brooks--mysterious, frustratingly charming Brooks--who just happens to be on staff--which means he's off-limits.

What starts as a disaster turns into. . . something else. As the outside world falls away, Avery embarks on a journey of self-discovery. And when Brooks offers her the chance of a lifetime, she must figure out how far is she willing to go to find out what she wants and who she wants to be.

Last March (right in the midst of covid) my thirteeth book came into the world!! I hope you've had a chance to read it! If not, here is the summary: 


 At sixteen, Hadley Moore knows exactly who she is—a swimmer who will earn a scholarship to college. Totally worth all the hard work, even if her aching shoulders don’t agree. 

So when a guy dressed as Hollywood’s latest action hero, Heath Hall, crashes her swim meet, she isn’t amused. Instead, she’s determined to make sure he doesn’t bother her again. Only she’s not sure exactly who he is. 

The swim meet isn’t the first event the imposter has interrupted, but a little digging turns up a surprising number of people who could be Heath Hall, including Hadley's ex-boyfriend and her best friend’s crush. She soon finds herself getting caught up in the mysterious world of the fake Heath Hall. 

As Hadley gets closer to uncovering the masked boy’s identity, she also discovers some uncomfortable truths about herself—like she might resent the long shadow her late brother has cast over her family, that she isn’t as happy as she pretends to be with her life choices…and that she's falling for the last guy she ever thought she would like.  


And for those of you who have read it and are hoping for a brand new book from me, you're in luck! Coming in 2021: SUNKISSED!! Stay tuned for a peek at the cover (which I love so much) and release date!

Publishing Schedule

Just thought I'd put down the dates of my upcoming novels since I'm constantly shouting out about different books and different covers and different ARCs. :)

My next book out is FAME, FATE, and the FIRST KISS. It comes out February 5, 2019. If you like stories about celebrities and fame and love and sabotage, this story is for you. I love it and I hope you do too!

After that, MAYBE THIS TIME comes out. Its release date is July 9, 2019. This story takes place over a year of events that the main character works. Think, Four Weddings and a Funeral (the movie, for those of you not old enough to know what I'm talking about). If you like holidays and parties and love and banter and family relationships and friendships this story is for you. This is one of my favs and I hope you love it!
