That’s right! In addition to my signing at Barnes & Noble in Plymouth Meeting, PA (suburban Philadelphia) on April 1st, I’ll also be appearing at Barnes & Noble in Wyomissing, PA on April 8th at 1pm!
Stop by and see me and drop your name in my drop box for a chance to win a goody pack that includes a $25 Amazon gift card, a signed copy of TRAVELER, and some other fun stuffage!
Now that TRAVELER is out and hopefully being read at a steady rate, I thought it might be fun to share some behind-the-scenes trivia. Some of this stuff will be familiar if you were among the early beta readers at SwoonReads.com, but at least one of these tidbits will surprise you: Continue reading

He reaches for my hand, bringing it to his lips. I stare at him a moment, trying hard not to like him so much. He’s entirely too charming, this Finn. And he knows it, too.
I had the pleasure of being interviewed over at Adventures in YA Publishing! Tune in to hear me talk about book inspiration, the publishing process, my ‘other’ self, and what’s coming next!
Catch the whole interview here.
The leaves were soft like snow, brushing her cheeks and
pillowing her body. The sun was pale, but she felt its warmth.
That’s actually me, doing a reading from my book! The book that I wrote! The one on the shelves! (I know I’m babbling, but it still seems a bit surreal.)
I had my first author event on Friday at Towne Book Center, with a terrific crowd and delicious glittery cake pops and the best damn coffee of my life!
Special thanks to the staff at Towne Book Center who were warm and welcoming – they also extended an invitation to their Young Writer’s Group, so I had a few of their members in attendance as well. They asked the best questions! Continue reading
Just a reminder that tonight is my author event at Towne Book Center in Collegeville, PA at 7pm. If you’re in the Philly area and feel like checking out their new wine bar (and seeing me signing books with my awesome custom-made pen), be sure and drop in!

In this scene, Finn – a fellow Traveler – has taken her through the mirror to an excessively sparkling reality for her first taste of Glitter Mousse.

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be interviewed by the charming Beth Ashley, who’s a podcaster, publisher, and writer in her own right in the U.K. for her podcast on “Beth’s Bookshelf.”
We had a fun and in-depth discussion on the things that make a writer, the issues of diversity and disability in literature, and all the things that make TRAVELER a really adventurous read (that brings in all the feels).
Check out the podcast here.
And thank you, Beth Ashley – let’s do this again sometime!
