5 Things About Me

1. I was the captain of my high school cheerleading squad AND a huge nerd. I definitely wasn't one of the "cool" kids but I was a pretty good cheerleader (even was voted "Most School Spirit" and "Most likely to be a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader" for Senior Choice Awards LOL). But instead of spending my weekends getting invited to parties and hanging out with the popular kids like one would expect of a cheerleader--I was either working at the movie theater or reading a book. Sound familiar? ;)
I also have ridiculously curly hair.

2. For an entire decade I read the entire Harry Potter series on a continuous loop so when I say I've read each of those books at least 100 times--I'm not exaggerating. I'm obsessed. I even have my own wand! When a UK reviewer compared my books to the Harry Potter series on Amazon, it totally made my year! Best compliment EVER.


3. My husband owns more shoes than I do. True story. I prefer to be barefoot.

4. I'm a total city girl when it comes to most things but I want to live on a farm. Some day it'll happen. Not a huge farm but we definitely want a bigger garden and chickens and ducks (we raised ducks last spring and the kids loved it!)

5.  Whenever anybody would ask "What do you want to be when you grow up?" I always said something expected like a "teacher" or a "doctor" or a "Psychologist" BUT the only thing I ever wanted to do was be a writer and a stay at home mom. I didn't want to admit to either of those things though because I thought people would react negatively and I'm a people-pleaser at heart. Now I'm BOTH of those things and I'm the happiest girl in the world!

  1. 1. I was (and kind of still am) obsessed with the show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I own every season on DVD
    2. I was born cross-eyed and had correction surgery when I was two. I still have a little bit of a crazy eye though lol
    3. I hate clowns.
    4. I'm mildly allergic to tomatoes and avocados but I REALLY love them and still eat them. I just get itchy skin and, oddly, an itchy mouth.
    5. I worked at a coffee shop for 7 years and I miss it a lot. One day I hope to open my own.

Nightingale: Spellbinding YA book about witches

Today I received an email letting me know that NIGHTINGALE has been included in a recently published wiki: Spellbinding YA Books About Witches! 
If I'm honest, Nightingale is my favorite out of the books set in the Lark universe so I was very excited to see it getting some love finally!



Here's what they said about NIGHTINGALE:

 "At #3  is "Nightingale" by Erica Cope. Wren Fairchild has no memory of who she is or how she ended up in a Light Elf kingdom. She eventually meets Greyson St Clair, the Consul to Queen Mia of Ãlfheimr. He doesn't trust Wren, but in order to learn more about her true nature, he'll have to help her regain her memories. Together, the pair must travel to the one place that can reveal the truth about the past, unraveling shocking secrets along the way."

Paper Flowers

It all started as a game—a game I never lost.
Cami Andrews is a girl on a mission. She’s a girl with a plan.
A three-step plan, to be exact, and it hasn’t failed her yet.
Her best friend Oliver doesn’t approve of the games she plays.
He is a boy unwaveringly loyal. Loyal to a fault, but his patience is running thin.  
When Cami sees Peyton Holmes for the first time she knows that she wants him to be her next conquest, and when Cami sets her sights on something, she never fails. Not in life and certainly not in love. She always gets what she wants, even if she has to adjust her personality a little in the process. It might test her friendship with Oliver, but that’s a chance she’s willing to take.

M.I.A as usual!

Hello everyone! I realize that I have been M.I.A. As most of you probably know I have been in grad school the last two years and it's been pretty time-consuming. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel! I graduate in December and after this semester (which has been particularly challenging), it should be smooth sailing until graduation day!

I am still writing. Not nearly as often as I once did because in addition to being a mom, a teacher, and a cheer coach, I am also a student. Whenever I can squeeze it in though I am writing! I finished a chapter tonight which prompted me to realize that I haven't updated my website in I don't even know how long.

I'd say I'll try to do better but let's be honest, I've said that before!

I have two solo WIP...THESE BROKEN DREAMS and SOMEWHERE BETWEEN FALLING. Both are very different from each other so that's kind of fun. Autumn and I also have a little something in the works but her life is just as hectic as …
