Thanks for visiting my site!

I am thrilled to be sharing the Summer Island series with you.  Book 1 – Lie to Me comes from a deeply personal place fueled in part by my own experience losing my mom to cancer and growing up on a small island in the Pacific Northwest. The Summer Island series will continue with Book 2 Beautiful Wreck featuring familiar characters and a coming of age story set in the world of Summer Island.

I love connecting with readers and answer all emails personally. Be sure to check back for info on upcoming new releases and to let me know what you think about the girls of Summer Island.
