Sample Sunday: from Catch Me If You Can

(this excerpt has not been edited for grammar/spelling, but HAS been edited to remove spoilers. Enjoy!) It was the sound of music, pumping from the classroom where Naomi hosted her classes that brought Marcus to the front of the gym. Curious, he stepped into the area meant for parents to watch their kids during performances,…

About Nothing But Love

So, I did something I shouldn’t have done.  That “something” was promising a sequel to the story from Love and Other Things.  When I wrote “the end” on Tara, Kristin, and Val’s stories, for me, it was the end, but then I started hearing that people wanted more… so, I promised more, because you’re supposed to…

Sample Sunday : From Didn’t Mean To Love You

(side note: I have a shiny new “books” page set up, finally! Check it out here!) “What’s going on with you?” I frowned, then shrugged, suddenly self-conscious under his careful inspection. “Nothing.” Carter raised an eyebrow, taking the last few steps to put him barely a foot in front of me. “It’s definitely not nothing.”…

Talking About Crazy Love

I just wanted to share this video, with me talking a little bit about A Crazy Little Thing Called Love, in advance of the release of the spin off book, Didn’t Mean To Love You. Also, I’ve been nominated for an award!  Best New Author, in the Building Relationships Around Books bookclub.  If you’d like…

Potty Training Redux

So… your homegirl Zoe isn’t interested in a potty. I know, I know, she’s only (almost) two, it’s not the biggest thing in the world. I get that. Big sister, Izzy, wasn’t fully trained until well over 2.5, and she regressed when baby sister was born. So, technically, she wasn’t fully potty trained until three.…

From Quanie Miller : The New Mrs. Collins

So, I’m a big fan of Quanie’s writing. The first book I read of hers, a romantic comedy (It’s Not Easy Being Jazzy) made me laugh, and laugh, and laugh until I cried. And then, I heard she had a new book coming out, and I was like “Yes!”. Then, I heard that it was…

So Random

We went to the pumpkin patch on Saturday.  That was planned.  What was NOT planned was waking up to a car that wouldn’t start (because I left my keys in the ignition, lights on overnight, shut up), and a husband who was out of town fishing and bbq’ing.  So, the friend that I was supposed…
