Sneak Peak! Your Beautiful Heart
25 July 2014

Well, looky here. It’s your first glimpse and first opportunity to order my upcoming project with Lauren Scruggs. Her book Your Beautiful Heart is fantastic, and I recommend it for any teen girl or young woman, or any woman for that matter. You are going to love it! (Amazon gets traffic because, as far as I can tell, it’s the first retailer to go public with this—see others? Let me know!)

In Progress: New Look, New Everything

If you’re thinking I should probably hire a web designer to fix my site, then you’ve probably noticed there’s some polish missing in this corner of the web lately.

Three Books I Want Lately


It’s still fireplace season, even in Southern California. Which means: it’s the perfect time to take a seat and crack open a good book.

Give this a perusal, then let me know what else I should be browsing!

So You Want To Write? Part 2

Long, too long ago, I posted the first part of this series. Then, being in a state of general pregnancy, I never followed up.

At the beginning of this year, though, a former colleague of mine emailed with some great questions about how to get started writing. It prompted the second half of this “So You Want To Write?” series, and made me think that maybe in time I’ll add even more. But for now, you can find what amounts to part 2 over at the WordServe Water Cooler, because I’m one of those fortunate WordServe authors, and because I decided it was OK to double-dip.

Craving Grace Crosses the Pacific!

For all those who have been asking, Craving Grace is about to be released in the Southeast Asia!

With a cover-refresh and in paperback to boot, Craving Grace is heading off to the islands. Courtesy of OMF Literature, you’ll now be able to find my latest project for sale in the Philippines. Upon last check, it hadn’t yet hit the OMF website, but be on the lookout and you should find it there soon!

Special thanks to all those who asked for this—you’re getting your wish!
