Praise For My Books

  • Wendy at Good Book Alert

    Effie at the Wedding is not just for the YA crowd, but also for anyone who has ever wallowed in self-pity, and then had to discover a reason to get off the pot.”

    “I really enjoyed reading this middle grade novel… My favorite line (because it’s probably one I can really relate to) is, ‘Cindy’s left ear is probably cooler than my entire body ever will be.’”

  • One A Day Y.A.

    I read this story and my heart hurt and my stomach got those little butterflies of discovery and I loved everything about it. I want more books like this one. I want more short stories like this one. Beautiful and anything but simple, this story touched me and hit all the right notes.

    “The best thing about Hot Ticket, however, is the plot. It’s a mystery concerned with exactly the kinds of things that its audience cares about. It explores ideas of popularity and exclusion, of peer influence and self-esteem, and does it in a way that can’t help but hold the reader’s attention.”

    Juliet (the main character) has spunk in spades. She may have tunnel vision when it comes to something that she wants, but she isn’t afraid to go for it… Also, even though things tend not to turn out the way she intended, Juliet has a good heart at the core.
