I was surprised and honored when author Magan Vernon nominated me for this meme. The purpose: to talk about your next book. And after her big reveal of her new project, The Only Exception, it’s going to be hard act to follow. Honestly, my brain has been so completely focused on book 3 of the … Continue reading The Next Big Thing
Yes! She lives!!!! I know I have been offline for quite a while now. But my little co-writer (my cat) and I have been so immersed in this new series I’ve started.
