Rule #1 Never get caught.

Rule #2 Never admit to anything.
Rule #3 Never get involved with boys.
It's not until Ru Rocklin is caught shoplifting that she considers exactly what has been taken from her. For sixteen years, she's lived on the fringe and in isolation with her older sister, Silky, a master thief who doubles as Ru's guardian—lying and thieving is the family biz.
After she's given the ultimatum to go to school or kick it in jail, Ru meets Julian Freese, and finally feels, well, normal. At least until the shame of her not-so-normal life pushes them apart. But when he reveals his own secrets, she realizes love is one con she can't pull.
When tragedy exposes the mystery of Ru's past, she's determined to finish the job Silky groomed her for: stealing the famed golden dragon, Mǔ long, from the Institute of Fine Art. It’s a heist she can't do alone so she gathers a crack team of liars and thieves to help.
As she tries to avoid the attention of the authorities, the crew embarks upon a wild game of give and take, bluffs and blunders, and twists and turns. Though it felt like the perfect plan, the dragon only leads to more questions. Ru will have to break every rule she knows to find the answers to Silky’s finely-woven lies and get her life back, or make a new one.

With Romeo and Juliet inspired romance and a caper with Ocean's 11 tension and thrills, fans of Heist Society by Ally Carter will enjoy this story of thieves and thugs, love and loss, and high-stakes action.

Chasing Days Release!

It's Tuesday, March 14, 2017! It's Pi Day π aka 3.14... 

Also, it's the book birthday for my latest young adult contemporary novel Chasing Days. I'm celebrating BIG (of course, there's confetti!) Check out my Instagram or Facebook for the latest.

Wondering what this sunny book is all about? 
Here's the blurb:

Two-weeks until Willa Wohlbreuk graduates.

Fourteen-days left for exams and senior pranks.

Three hundred-thirty-six-hours for friendships to unravel and to fall in and out of love.

Twenty thousand-one-hundred-sixty-minutes left to go wild and grow up.

And one million two-hundred-nine-thousand-six-hundred-seconds to figure out what freedom really means.

Willa faces her best friend Teddy—Theo now—as he defies his parents and reveals something about himself she never expected. Joss appears with blue hair and stirs things up. And Grady, finally, after four years, suddenly knows Willa’s name. Meanwhile, the undercurrent of uncertainty about the future dredges up the possibility that Willa isn’t even sure who she is. All she knows is life is about to change, epically.
