There’s a romance trope I really love and I wish I knew what to call it. It’s the one where the characters are unaware that they have two different relationships. In real life, they know each other one way–maybe friendly, maybe co-workers, maybe adversaries. But then there’s another relationship where they don’t know each other’sContinue reading “Review: PLIÉ by A.H. Cunningham”

I never really liked the first cover I made for The Wedding Guests. It was a perfectly serviceable cover, but it didn’t really give much indication of what you’d find inside. So, since I had a few minutes, I decided now was as good a time as any to put together a new one. DrumContinue reading “New Cover!”
Read This: Pride & Prejudice & Other Flavors
It’s been a while since I’ve done a book recommendation post. It’s not that I haven’t read anything worth recommending; I have. More, it’s that I haven’t read anything that I felt like compelled to recommend. Until now. It’s no secret that I love Jane Austen. Jane Austen is the romance novel OG (we canContinue reading “Read This: Pride & Prejudice & Other Flavors”
Are you ready?
Are you ready? Are you excited? Well, get excited, because the pre-order listing for The Reunion, complete with the back-of-book blurb, is up!

Back in April of last year when I announced that I had completed my novel, there was an optimistic little part of me that thought, Hey, finishing a book in 2018 could mean that I’ll be publishing a book in 2019. And guess what? I am! Plot twist: not that book. I know. I’m as surprised as you.Continue reading “Announcement!”
A little change and a big tease!
Look at this! It’s a new photo! Of me! And I look pretty good! I have to give a massive shout out to Kate at Lily Jack Photography in Raymond, NH, for managing to make me look like myself but on my best hair and skin day. And, also, for being super easy to workContinue reading “A little change and a big tease!”
This could be the one…
It’s weird how sometimes writing is like romance. You start thinking, Maybe I’m ready to put myself out there again, and so you start looking around. You think, This person seems nice, but I’m not sure I see it going anywhere. Or you think, I see exactly where that’s going and no thank you. SometimesContinue reading “This could be the one…”
Why Minority Representation in Media Is Good for White People, Too.
Hey, fellow white people. There’s a lot of discussion about how important representation of minorities is in the media right now. From Black Panther, to A Wrinkle In Time‘s multi-racial family, to lingering discussions about how many of America’s most popular shows are really, really white, I get that it can feel like the messageContinue reading “Why Minority Representation in Media Is Good for White People, Too.”
A sweet way to survive the winter
And now we’re deep into winter. The stress and fun of the holidays have passed. The excitement of the first snow is gone. Now it’s just cold and the sun barely seems to show itself. Everyone has a cold. Worst of all, we’ve got at least two more months of this misery before thisContinue reading “A sweet way to survive the winter”
We’re all healthy…until we’re not
On an unremarkable Sunday at the end of this summer, I woke up feeling crummy. I’d had a couple glasses of sangria the night before, which is unusual for me, so I figured I had a little hangover. I’m definitely getting old if a couple drinks is all it takes to make me hungover, IContinue reading “We’re all healthy…until we’re not”
