Hey Peeps!

So this blog post has been a looooonnng time coming but life has been a little cray, cray lately. Don’t worry, it’s been cray in the best way possible!

To quote Big Sean “way up I feel blessed.” First, I’ve am a finalist in a few contests, including the Wisconsin Fab Five (Fool For You – Book 1) and received third place for the North Chicago RWA Fire & Ice Contest (It’s Been You – Book 2). I’ll find out the results for Fab 5 sometime in the summer.

And last, but certainly not least…I received a publishing deal! Woohooo! Crimson publishing will be releasing Fool For You, book one in the Crush on You Series.  Here’s a little blurb.

Fool For You: Sports journalist Melanie Foster has a plan. Move to NYC, activate Operation: I’m Gonna Make You Love Me and convince her best friend that his spoiled fiancée isn’t the woman for him.  She is.

The book will be released on July 18th  2016 (breathes in brown paper bag), and I cannot wait to debut my baby to the world! I also have a few more rounds of editing, It’s Been You, which was a finalist in the Fire & Ice contest.

I’ll have more fun updates about me and I have a few book reviews coming down the pipeline. To stay in touch, please sign up for my newsletter:
