Love, Hate, and Other Lies We Told Release Day!




Hip, hip, hooray! It's release day! 


Love, Hate, and Other Lies We Told is free and in the wild, ready to warm hearts, make you cry... and, mostly make you laugh; it's a romantic comedy, after all. 

Oh, and it's women's fiction. As you know I've most recently written young adult fiction, but I had to tell Navy's story just in time for Valentine's Day. 

Wait? That's next month? Oh, right. Well, in that case, what I meant to say is the follow up novella will be release on February 14th! Wink, wink. 

Wondering what Love, Hate, and Other Lies We Told is all about? Read on...


Let go from her job and feeling lost, Navy Carrington takes a position as coffee-girl at a publicity firm. Their newest client is Carrick Kennely, the former love of her life and her fiercest adversary. She thought she'd let go of the past by playing it safe with book boyfriends—and avoiding frustratingly sexy guys like Carrick.

When Navy's roommate finds the Boyfriend Book, a silly relic leftover from Navy's teens, it prompts a dare; Navy is to go on five dates and pick one to be her Valentine. Despite her reservations, she can't say no, especially if it means proving to herself and Carrick that she can move on.

Navy chronicles her brief romantic entanglements with the Hottie in 7G, the Man-Bun-Barista, the Gym Stud, and the Book Boyfriend who turns out to be a toad—not the kind that when kissed turns into a prince—, on The Boyfriend Book Blog. She doesn't want to let her readers or herself down, but as Valentine's Day nears, none of the guys comes close to being her one true love.

Except Carrick. He’s infuriating, attractive, confusing, catnip…and it turns out he has a secret.

With a love letter and a plane ticket in hand, Navy leaves her baggage behind and must decide between love, hate, and the lies she told to protect her fragile heart.

Told with humor and heart, Love, Hate, and Other Lies We Told may appeal to readers who enjoy Alice Clayton, Sally Thorne, and Emily Giffin's work.

The Love, Hate, and Other Lies We Told COVER REVEAL!

What happens when you combine love, hate, lies, fiction, and me? 

You get confetti! 


Confetti makes me happy, especially the custom made blends from The Confetti Bar

Jessica Serra Huizenga, an indie author, a unicorn, and all around fabulous gal created this confetti for the book and guess what? It's found its way onto the cover! 

A certain ingenious, wonderful, talented writer friend designed this masterpiece. 

I can't wait to share it with you. 

Are you ready?

Welcome 2017!

Happy, happy New Year!

I'm so excited for things to come in the coming months. 

Why? 

Although I do a lot of talking and writing, my word of the year is LISTEN

Listening means to being more present to each passing moment and not let them flurry by. 

Listening means tuning into my intuition and going with my gut. 

Listening means being more attentive to family and friends. 

Listening means hearing what others have to say without judgement. 

Listening means slowing down when I need to. Slowing down in general. 


EXCEPT when it comes to publishing. I mentioned this in my farewell 2016 post, but I am going all in this year. I'm ready to LIGHT. IT. UP! 

I've written a lot of books, guys. A lot. It's time for you to have access to them. 

2017 is going to be the great year of publishing for me and I'm so excited to share some of these stories I have waiting for you.
