What I Write

My young adult novels are dark, edgy, and realistic. Although I love paranormal and fantasy books, I prefer to create stories that could really happen (and in many cases, really are happening). For me, the echo of a story set firmly in the real world always haunts me long after I've read the final word. If you like Ellen Hopkins, Jay Asher, and Neal Shusterman, you might like my books, too.

Being a True Friend to an Author

...is a lot of work.  A.L. Davroe explained it so eloquently in her latest blog post, that I just can't top it.  So if you want to know how to be the best friend/spouse/parent you can be, do read it.

And, one more thing, if you know a writer, just hug them.  Okay?  Because doing what we do is HARD work.  It really, really is.

    I can't wait for the day we can read about Cameron & Emma in print. :)


About Me

I'm a writer of contemporary teen fiction. My bookshelf is SLAMMED with young adult novels and I should be on some sort of twelve step program for my spending habits in Barnes and Noble. And, for the record, I LIKE having real books, so no Nook or Kindle for this gal.
