I grew up in Kendallville, Indiana,
graduated from East Noble High School,
and then attended Purdue University, from
which I graduated with degrees in English,
English education, and psychology. I also
received my master's in school counseling
from Purdue. I lived in Denver for a few
years, back in Indiana for a few, and now
in my very favorite place, Ft Myers, FL!
Denver is featured in my recent novel A
Stranger Thing, and if you want to know all
about growing up in Indiana (exciting stuff,
I promise!), just check out the Spin the
Bottle series! There are also scenes in
several of my books that take place in Ft.
Myers Beach! And next up, you will finally
get to read about Jansen's life growing up
in another of my favorite places, NYC! :) I
would love to hear your opinions,
suggestions, ideas, and comments! Feel

Everything Happens for a Reason... is the story
of a year in the life of a group of college
friends: Jill, Hilton, Laney, Natalie, Todd, Adam,
and Luke (to name the main ones).
Spin the Bottle is a series of prequels to
Everything Happens for a Reason.... It is about
Jill, Hilton, and Todd in high school and all their
high school friends. The spin the bottle novels
are called really good friends, wrong all
along, best-kept secrets, and game over.
All That Sparkles Isn't Real Sapphire follows the
life of Lorylyn, a main character in the spin the
bottle series, as she goes to college.
I Don't Want the Rest of Your Life starts in
October of 2008, at a wedding, then
backtracks to 2004 to show what Lorylyn and
her friends have been up to since Amsterdam.
LoveMeansZero picks up about 2 years after
the end of Everything Happens for a Reason...
and is about Hilton's, Jill's, Luke's, and Todd's
lives after college. Look for some major
shockers for all of them in this one! :)
Living in a Postcard starts in January 2009 and
continues to follow Hilton's life on the tennis
tour, as well as the lives of Jill, Todd, and Luke!
I counted the big surprises/twists in this one,
and there are 13!! ;)
A Stranger Thing starts where I Don't Want the
Rest of Your Life Ends...but it doesn't answer the
cliffhanger for several pages. ;) This book is
about Lorylyn, Kylar, Zibby, Jansen, and their
guy friends as they move away from their
Only May in Paris Will Tell is the craziest book
yet about Hilton and the tennis tour. Childhood
secrets, pregnancies, divorce, exciting new
relationships, and a random photo taken by
Hilton that may be a clue in a murder are just a
few of the things that happen. :)
