Recently I opened one of those helpful emails from Amazon—you know, the ones that suggest books you might like. They’ve got me dialed in.

I’d never heard of this author and it’s highly unlikely she’d ever heard of me. She didn’t actually “steal” my idea. I seem to be cursed with this sort of thing, though, because earlier this year, one of my favorite authors put out a book that was eerily similar to another idea…

I'm super excited to share the cover for Undefined! This is the first book in The Elemental Saga, and it releases October 22. The truth about her past may define her future. Sophie loves being an elemental. Being able to bend the natural world to her will is thrilling, even if the need for secrecy is putting a cramp in her dating life.

Birthright Wins Triple!

Birthright has had an exciting summer! It won several prestigious awards, including the National Readers' Choice Award (YA category - in photo), the Golden Quill Award (YA category), and the Athena Award (paranormal YA category and the BEST of the BEST). I love this book (and the rest of the series), and I'm so proud and humbled by this recognition. TRUE CONFESSION TIME: I feel very uncomfortable promoting myself and my work. I feel even more uncomfortable bragging about myself, even if said bragging is warranted. I'm trying to get over it. This post is part of that effort. :)

Teaser Time – TRUST IN ME

The countdown is on! TRUST IN ME will be out in one week! His eyes searched her face and his eyes darkened as his expression shifted. He gripped her arms and yanked her body against his. “You’re forgiven,” he said gruffly. Then he crushed his mouth to hers. She stiffened for a moment before becoming pliant, soft. She felt herself melding her body against his. His lips explored hers, gently sucking and nipping. Her knees turned to rubber and she wrapped her arms around him to steady herself. He took that as an invitation and deepened the kiss, parting her…
