This seemed fitting to share with you all. I invite you to listen to it and get a glimpse…

Growing up, when I thought about the stories that I would write and the stories I yearned to tell, I never set them in the city I consider my hometown. I set the those stories in NYC, Paris, Los Angeles, and on made up planets. Never in Ohio.…

#NaturalLove Release Week: A Few Fan Made Teaser Graphics

Right now, in these last few days before release, NATURAL LOVE has just been read by a small group of people. A small group of  fellow authors, two editors, some bloggers, and a few ARC readers are the only ones who know all of Spencer and Avery’s love story. Having ARC copies out has been a interesting process this time around. I’ve enjoyed it a lot. Yesterday, a ARC reader living in New Hampshire finished the book. Shortly afterward, she reached out…
