Cotton Candy Wishes is Available Now!

Is achieving the social status of your dreams really all that sweet?

Taylor wishes she were popular. It's not like she doesn't have any friends, but when she tries to throw a giant cotton candy–themed birthday bash, it ends up a huge flop—no one shows up.

So when her dad gets a new job and they have to move, Taylor sees it as an opportunity to reinvent herself. As luck would have it, in the first week of her new school, she's partnered on a project with the queen bee of seventh grade herself, Elle. Soon, she's one of the popular crowd. She's even on her way to a date with the cutest boy in school! All her dreams are coming true!

But Taylor starts to learn that being with the in-crowd involves a lot of gossip and backstabbing—and she realizes that her favorite part of the day is actually hanging out with Colin, her nerdy math partner. However, Elle is not a fan of Colin—and ultimately, Taylor has to choose between them. Will she risk alienating Colin and his friends to maintain the social status she always wished for?

Find it now at Amazon, B&N, or IndieBound.

2017 Writing Highlights

It's New Years Eve again, which seems to be the only time I remember to blog. Was the last post really from 2016's NYE? Ugh, I guess so. I guess me and blogging haven't meshed in awhile. It's not to say I haven't been writing. I've done a lot of writing in 2017- I put out four books in a series under my secret pen name in 2017, plus participated in a box set with 20 other authors. I've super enjoyed writing under a pen name. It's given me a lot of freedom to explore a new genre and interact with loads of new readers. And it's taken off pretty well so yay, sales! :-) That's not to say I'm not still active with my middle grade and young adult writing. I've done a number of signings and festivals throughout the year as well as school visits. And I'm working on a middle grade novel right now that should be out in early 2019-- stay tuned for official news on that. Cici Reno is due out in paperback in April as well. Here's hoping 2018 is a happy, healthy, and productive year for us all!

2016 Writing Life Highlights

It's December 31st again and for the last 8 years I pop over to my blog and sum up my writing life for the past year, month by month. I'm feeling a bit lazy today so I'm going to sum it up in pictures. :-) It's been a great year. My middle grade novel, Cici Reno #MiddleSchoolMatchmaker came out and received rave reviews across the board. I attended conferences, signings, and school visits. And I wrote so, so much this year. My resolution last year was to write more and I sure did. I didn't add up the words but I completed three full books and wrote three partial books. That's pretty awesome for me! I hope you've had a wonderfully productive year as well! Happy New Year!

Until next year...
