Springtime Soiree with Love’s Sweet Arrow

Join me on Thursday, April 16th at 7pm central for a live virtual author visit on the Love’s Sweet Arrow FB page. There’ll be cocktails, cupcakes, and confessions! I’ll be doing a live reading of a scene from one of my Sometimes in Love books, answering questions, sharing recipes, dishing on my current project, and giving out some amazing party gifts (like one of these surprise boxes!) to a few lucky attendees. There’s also a virtual signing where you can order signed personalized print books from all of the participating authors! I hope you’ll pop in for some fun and help support Love’s Sweet Arrow, Chicagoland’s romance indie bookstore!


So excited to announce I’m working on something new! I’ve just signed a deal with St. Martin’s Press for 2 new rom-coms. Like my Sometimes in Love series, these new stories will feature strong female friendships, loads of witty banter, and plenty of affectionate nods and playful winks at beloved romance tropes. The first will arrive spring 2021, I can’t wait for you to meet a new band of badass besties, a prickly on the outside sweet and goofy on the inside programmer/gaming nerd hero, and a horrible goose in the form of a kleptomaniac seagull who goes from cock-blocker to Cupid. Watch for more news including pre-order links, cover reveal, and how you can join my exclusive Reading Lush Book Brigade!
