Hello out there!!
I know, it seems like forever that I last gave you all an update on how things were going in my world. If you follow my Facebook page, you know that it’s because I had a baby!! My sweet angel was born in December and has been occupying all of my time since then, putting my writing on the back burner.
Isn’t she the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen???? Well my precious daughter turns 2 months tomorrow, so I figured it was time to turn up the burner on my writing.
To start, I’m very happy to tell you that YES! I am working on a new novel. This will be a stand alone, mature YA mystery/romance. What’s it called, you ask? The title of this book is:
NEVER GONNA TELL
The amazing Regina at Mae I Design has made the cover, and I can tell you it’s my favorite one so far!! I can’t wait to share it with you.
But not yet.
What I can share with you is a little teaser!

“Reagan, I—” His words stop, frozen on the tip of his tongue as he stares at me.
I can’t look away and feel myself lean closer. He does the same. Things around me fade away, blurred into an abstract painting and the only thing in focus is Marco. His hand is still in mine from when he pulled me to a stop, and I can feel his pulse race. Or is it mine?
The sounds of the other students and the cars still dropping kids off are now nothing but a low hum, instead all I hear is my breath as I finally exhale—never even noticing that I was holding it. I lick my dry lips, and Marco’s eyes widen slightly as he shifts his focus to them and his grip becomes stronger on my hand.
I don’t know how long we’ve stood like this, but it feels like forever. I want to memorize all the flecks in his eyes. I want to reach out and brush my finger against the one deep dimple in his right cheek. I want to—
So what do you think? I’d love for you to leave a comment and tell me your thoughts! And remember to stay tuned here on my website and my Facebook page for more information, including the cover reveal coming soon!!
