This isn’t a deep book about first loves or self-discovery. If you want a book like that, I’d be happy to recommend one, but I don’t have that kind of story to tell. Instead my story is about rash decisions and finding out that your dream guy is bad in bed. It’s the story of when I finally went skinny dipping, and how my life was never the same again. Oh, and it’s also the story of my freshman year of college and realizing Mr. Right might have been there all along.
Le Interview:
f you were stuck on a deserted island, would you rather have with you a book, a banjo, a pineapple or a cinnamon scented candle with you? How would you use it?

A book.  I love reading, and if I were stranded I’d definitely need the escape.

What does being an Indie author mean to you?

Being an indie author means challenging yourself as an author and putting out high quality books.

What was your favorite book to write?

It’s a tie between The Hazards of Skinny Dipping and Found (The Crescent Chronicles #3)

Which character do you feel is most like you?

Charlotte from my Afterglow books is a lot like me when I was a teenager. I also think there’s some Becca from Veer in me too.

What is one book that for you, just didn’t live up to the hype?

I tend to ignore hype, so it isn’t too much of a problem.

What is your most anticipated book of 2013?

Jennifer Snyder has her first NA contemporary coming out this fall (Break You) and I’m really excited to read it.

Have you gone to Disney land/world? If so what was your favorite thing to do?

I’ve been to Disney World a few times. I always loved Epcot the best.

Would you rather live underwater or on the moon?


If pigs took over the world tomorrow, would you side with them or form a rebellion? If you would form a a rebellion, what literary characters would you want on your side?

I’d form a rebellion. I’d want Katniss from The Hunger Games on my side.

Speed Rounds:

Coffee or Tea? Coffee.  I’m addicted

Green or Blue? Blue.

Bad boys or good boys? Good boys.

Ebook or physical? Ebooks for the ease of always having one with me.
