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.

Today only! 80+ giveaways for paperbacks, ebooks, and more!

    Hello! Welcome to my page! I'm terrible about updating it but my goal is to do better this year so when Lizzy Ford came up with the Spring into Romance Facebook Hop I jumped right on!  What a fantastic idea, right?! Lots of new authors to meet and prizes to win!  For my giveaway, I decided to giveaway one of my books that is particularly close to my heart,   Pieces of Me Aria Watkins’s life was on the perfect path, or so she thought. She and Sean had big plans for their future together. They were going to go off to college, get married, and have 2.5 kids. But when tragedy strikes, it destroys the heart of Aria and she's afraid she'll never be the same.  Heartbroken and confused, Aria starts college a completely different person. She hardly recognizes the broken girl she's become, but she can't seem to find the strength to put back together the pieces either.  Enter Holden Whitmore.  He's charming, considerate, and he's

The "C" Word

It's probably the scariest word out there. At least I can't really think of a single word that effects me as much as the "C" word does. Just 6 little harmless letters strung together and it leaves me completely breathless. I guess I should probably start at the very beginning. Last August I went in for my normal yearly exam. My midwife Sue asked me how I was feeling and I was literally just complaining like a little whinebag at the time. I told her I had a super bad cough that wasn't going away no matter how many different kind of over the counter cough medicine I had been taking. Nothing was working and sometimes I would wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air. She felt my throat and said I felt "knotty" so she wanted me to get some labwork done. I asked why and she seemed hesitant to tell me. I told her I was just going to go home and google it and jump to the worse-possible-scenario conclusion. So she told me that it could be just a coup
