I live and write in Lakewood, Colorado, and if I peek around one corner of my balcony, I have a wonderful view of the front range of the Rocky Mountains.
I was a teacher and librarian, and somehow, with hard work and a little luck, I've found a third career as a writer. I love the sound of that! In the summer of 2012, Delacorte Press published my debut novel, KISSING SHAKESPEARE, a time-travel romance for teens. In the fall of 2013, my second novel will be published by William Morrow. It's a PRIDE AND PREJUDICE sequel about the socially awkward middle Bennet sister, Mary. If you're an Austen fan, I hope you'll watch for it.
I share something in common with you--I love to read! Besides YA, I love mysteries, historical fiction, mainstream and women's fiction, and fantasy. I'm always curious about what other people are reading, because whatever that is might become my new favorite book!
My husband and I have done several walking trips in England, Scotland, and France. That means going from one town to the next, on foot, sometimes fifteen miles a day! It was on one of these walks that I discovered Hoghton Tower, the setting of KISSING SHAKESPEARE.
Nothing has made me happier than hearing from readers.
