Why I write

I love when twitter trends on a topic dear to my heart.  I write because wanted to contribute art and not just consume it. After reading an insane number of YA books and NA books I knew I had to give it a try. Little did I know that I would enjoy it so much and churn out two books in three months! But what really blew my mind is when people enjoyed them. I will continue to write, create and dream up new novels because it’s my passion.  I feel very grateful to my creative writing teachers/newspaper staff in high school as well as my Mass Comm. writing professors in college for unknowingly shaping me into the writer I am.

# That is why I write

Lake Sarner we saw from the road and had to stop. The turquoise color was striking.

I will share more from our trip another time but I hope you enjoyed a peek into Switzerland. I have a feeling one of my next books will be placed there. So beautiful and inspiring! Have you visited somewhere that you wish a book was written about?

My latest creation!

Hello everyone I am excited to announce a new book hopefully coming out by the end of October. Single in Silicon Valley is a story about a young widow who is forced to start over. Juliette is a computer prodigy that takes a job at Google hoping to heal her heart with good old vitamin D and an exciting career. But dating in Silicon Valley is unlike any other place in the country let alone for a 27 year old widow with two kids! Will Jules coding skills get her noticed by the geeks? And even if it does will any rise up to the massive job of taking on kids?

My feelings: I loved writing this story. I was inspired by a few brave ladies I know that have been widowed the past two years. I wanted a story that presented a strong character that forges her way to happy ending. This is for them. Living in the bay area I have learned all about the dating scene and how it differs from anywhere else in the U.S. Many people are high educated, well paid and there are more males to females! It creates an interesting dynamic of girls having their pick and yet having to be wary of being some guy’s only pick! I will be releasing more info and cover art as it becomes available!

Fun Facts

Based in the bay area: The story touches Mountain View, Palo Alto, San Francisco and Carmel, CA.

There is a character that has a Man Bun: If you don’t know what that is follow this link to see a parody on cinnamon buns in place of man buns. http://www.mtv.com/news/2227951/cinnaman-bun-tumblr-manbun/

I wrote the book in a month: I thought this would be a short story but turned into a novel! I didn’t know if I had the guts to really take on an emotional tale.

My first time writing both sides: You heard it right! There is a male and female perspective throughout the book! It was tricky to write the lead male character’s view but it became fun and addicting. It added so many details to the book that I hope the readers love!

Meet the Main Characters

“I loved this book! A lot of YA novels are very predictable and the characters can lack depth. This is definitely not the case in Electric Fog! Liv is faced with many things in a relationship that many adults face – losing her sense of self in her relationship, loyalty toward her family versus loyalty toward Austin, etc. I was very impressed with how well developed the character were. I thought that Liv dealt with things more maturely than many adults that I know would have. I thought it was a great fusion between a YA coming of age novel with a fantasy novel. The author was so successful in transporting the reader to another world. I am really looking forward to what is to come in the rest of the series.”

As a fan of YA novels, this is one of my favorites. It’s a well-written story about young love, difficult decisions and becoming who you are meant to be. The story is unpredictable, even though it shares themes with other popular books in this genre. I couldn’t put it down because it was exciting, fresh and I didn’t know how it would end!
Definitely a fun read.
