My Heart is Made of...

My <3 is not made up of $$'s.

If you were to take my heart out of my chest and hold it to your ear, you would not hear the sound of coins jingling around the sides. Nor would you hear the crumpled sound of paper dollar bills brushing up against the edges.


If you held my heart up to your ear, you would hear the sound of my Love, my Joy, my Pain, my Heartache, my Heartbreak, my Success, my Failure, my Triumphs, my Laughter, my Tears, my Hurt, my Losses, my Past, my Future, my Words, my Hopes, my Dreams...

My heart is missing pieces of itself that I've lost along the way. Some i've given freely. Some i've wanted back. But it's my heart, my journey and I wouldn't change a thing.

Every story I write is a piece of myself that I choose to share with anyone who chooses to read it.  I write FROM the heart, WITH my heart.

It's just who I am.

And dear readers, I can promise you this:  I will never write for the money. I wouldn't even know where to start. 


I love and appreciate it every single one of you. Thank you for being the raddest freaking readers on earth.  :)

Boston Book Signing- I Need You!


So the whole crazy Boston book signing deal-i-o is NOT THAT FAR AWAY (18 days?! 19 days? i'm bad at math)!!!!  I need to order my books and ship them to the hotel...


I have NO freaking idea how many to order. 

If you are planning to BUY a book there, can you please let me know in the comments section of this blog post or on facebook so that I can try to plan accordingly?!? The last thing I want is to haul 100 pounds of books home from freaking Boston to California. I might be strong, but i'm lazy.  lol

If you already have a book that you're bringing, no worries. I just need to try to order / ship / send out the right amount (ish).

Thank you!!!!

I can't freaking wait to see y'all and hug your faces off.  :)  It's what I do.  <3

BOOK PRICES WILL BE one for $12 / two for $20

I can accept cash or credit cards.  :)


ps- I'm still looking for Lisa McGuire- i think that was her name (maybe Lori? Or something with an L). She sent me an email last week and my phone accidentally deleted it off of my mail server and I wanted to write her back and now I can't because my phone ate the email and she is going to think I hate her, but I actually LOVE her and want to tell her, but I can't. So if you know Lisa/Lizzie/Lori/Lana/herfirstnameprobablydoesntevenbeginwithanL  tell her I need her to email me again!!!!  and thanks!

The Game Changer UPDATE!

It's coming back from the editor soon and then I will announce an OFFICIAL Release Date for it! :)

And this is the cover for my follow up book:

Please note that I am getting an almost overwhelming amount of concerned emails, facebook messages and tweets in regards to another book that has been released with the same title as mine. Now that Amazon has been promoting it in emails and featuring it on lists, people are more confused than ever (even going as far as thinking that Amazon messed up the synopsis with what my future synopsis should be?!?!?!).

That other book is in no way related to my book or story. It is not the follow up to The Perfect Game. I'm very sorry for this confusion. I had hoped to avoid having to address this issue at all, but the emails and posts are simply becoming too frequent and I was asked to make a statement.

As always, thank you so much for your continued support and your excitement for my upcoming releases.  I really appreciate it. I hope you all continue to read the books you love and support the authors who write them.  We are nothing without you. 

:)  xo

Holy smokes!

It's like I completely forgot about you, huh?!

I've been writing. And writing. And writing some more.

I've completed 20 chapters so far in The Game Changer and i'm nearing the end.

It's hard to say how close I am because the story tends to grow, evolve and take me in different directions sometimes. 

But I just wanted you to know. 20 chapters down!  Sending to the editor soon!

Which means we're closer to releasing this bad boy!  I'll have a date for you within the next couple of weeks! 

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :)
