Thanks for visiting my blog! I tend to write humorous yet thought-provoking YA stories about dead or dying people. Like Jimmy Hawkins, the friendly ghost in THIS IS YOUR AFTERLIFE (Bloomsbury Spark), for example. My next release will be LIVE FAST, DIE YOUNG, a contemporary tearjerker. It’s part of the upcoming DANGEROUS BOYS e-novella anthology. Watch out for the release on June 5! THE TWEETEST THING (HarperCollins), however, is not about death or dying, but about connecting online with a rock star. It was inspired by a Duran Duran concert that my boss treated me to because I’m a die-hard fan of the band.
One of my other publishing claims to fame? A place in the Awkward Family Pet Photos book along with my very photogenic cat named Possum. I’m also a three-time finalist in the prestigious Golden Heart® Award, and a winner in the Oklahoma Romance Writers of America’s National Readers’ Choice Award.
On a personal note, I live in Australia with my musician husband, the photogenic cat, and at least one ghost. In addition to writing, I’m a TV closed captioner for the deaf and audio describer for the blind. My pastimes include baking, iPhonography, and traveling the world on a quest to find the world’s greatest fries.
