ABOUT



I spend my days doing what I love -- writing love stories from my little loft office in Houston. I'm thrilled to announce that my third book, Love and Other Secrets, will be released on 9/3/18 and available for pre-order on 8/13! 

About the book:

Star lacrosse player Alex “Kov” Koviak has it all. Or so everyone thinks. He’s real good at pretending his life is perfect...until he meets Bailey. The girl challenges him and pushes him and makes him laugh like he’s never laughed before. Their friendship is their little secret, and he’s happy to keep her to himself. Between school, two jobs, and trying to get into NYU film school, Bailey Banfield has zero time for a social life. But then she meets Alex in her express lane at the grocery store, and their secret friendship becomes the only place she can breathe. She refuses to complicate that with more. No matter how charming Alex can be. When Bailey decides to film outrageous promposals for her NYU application, she enlists Alex’s help to plan an over-the-top, epic promposal to someone else. Too bad the only prom date Alex wants anywhere near Bailey is him. For a guy who seems to have it all, he’s about to lose the only thing he's ever wanted.

My second book, The First Kiss Hypothesis, is about a high school senior determined to find true love using the scientific method. Her next door neighbor, best friend and long-time crush, has other ideas.



A third book, as yet untitled, will come out from Entangled Crush in Spring 2019!

If you like a little cake with your romance, be sure to check out my first young adult novel, The Sweetest Thing, about a talented teenager juggling first love, a cake-decorating business, her dad's reality TV show and the search for her missing mother.

my muses
I live near Houston with one husband, two young adult daughters and a mustachioed cat named Leonardo DiCatprio. I have a fondness for the beach, my family and friends, and good books. I love to read (especially curled up with a cup of coffee!) I also like to travel, exercise, go to the movies and eat, especially cake. Always cake. When I'm not doing these things, I can be found on my laptop, writing.

Now that you're here, I hope you poke around a bit. Whether you're a kid, a teenager or an adult, whether you love to write or read (or both!) there's a little something here for you.
