A GREAT REVIEW from Kirkus Reviews for Biggest Flirts, in stores May 20! Did you see it? DID YOU??? They are not always kind; it is like Joan Rivers saying she approves of your Oscars dress.
"Tia Cruz doesn’t live by a lot of rules.
She’s the first to arrive to a party and the last to leave. Her aversion to responsibility carries over to school, where she keeps her photographic memory on the down low and intentionally scores a C in Spanish despite being bilingual. But Tia’s no-strings-attached playbook gets put to the test when Will Matthews moves to town. Sparks fly when the two meet, and the one-night stand that follows is both inevitable and swoon-worthy. But despite their undeniable chemistry, Tia is determined not to break the one rule she does live by: Never get attached. Tia’s reasons for never wanting a boyfriend are deep-rooted, and perhaps that is why she is able to convince herself that she’s fine when Will lands himself another girl. Plus, girlfriend or not, Tia and Will can’t seem to keep their hands off each other at band practice. But when the senior class votes them “Biggest Flirts,” things get serious, and Tia is forced to choose between her feelings and her fears. Tia’s breezy narration carries readers through the book with a witty profanity that doesn’t quite cover up her insecurity and ably shows off her innate smarts.
Teen romance fans on the hunt for a flirty fix will find plenty to enjoy in this sexy, fun beach read. (Fiction. 14-17)"

READ AN EXCERPT of my only paranormal romance and *probably* my favorite of all the books I've written, Levitating Las Vegas!
Just received Such a Rush's trophy for the Book Buyers Best. Many thanks to the Orange County Chapter of Romance Writers of America!
SO THRILLED that Star Crossed is featured on the Barnes & Noble Book Blog in "4 Romance Novel Clichés…and Books That Did Them Well." I try. ;)
HUGS. Book blog Rather Be Reading usually reviews YA, but on their Big Kids' Table posts, they talk about books for adults. They've included my novel Star Crossed among their favorite romances. Thanks y'all!
BLAST FROM THE PAST. I'm gearing up for the launch of Biggest Flirts and I came across my sophisticated marketing ploy from 2007. Go ahead, click the link and immerse yourself in the Disney-like realism. I'll wait here.
HOORAY! Because librarians are kind, Dirty Little Secret has won the Alabama Library Association's YA Author Award for 2014! If you're a librarian in Alabama, I hope you'll come to the luncheon at ALLA's convention in April. I would love to meet you.
I'm a Rising Star! Along with Eloisa James and J. R. R. Tolkien! Obvs.
