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, Fort 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 Fort Myers Beach! And now, you can
finally read about Jansen's life growing up in
another of my favorite places, NYC, in the Not
Like Paradise trilogy! :) I would love to hear
your opinions, suggestions, ideas, and
comments! Feel free to email me at

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. :)
The Not Like Paradise trilogy is another prequel
series...this time about Jansen, Lorylyn's
college roommate, during her wild and
mysterious teen years in New York City! In this
series, which begins with Urban Legends, you
will finally hear the full story Jansen has
dropped hints about in later years!
