Every day is your love story

I’ve believed those words since I was old enough to get a thrill from reading Sweet Valley High.

You should see what that kind of personal mantra will do for youthful poetry and diary keeping.

Then again, maybe not…

On November 14th, 2017, Bannerwing Books released Sweet Pease, the much-anticipated sequel Damselfly Inn, and second full-length novel in the Thornton Vermont series. This fictional small town is overflowing with characters and places, and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you.

What does my love story look like today? A house in a suburb, shared with my husband, our fourth-grader, and a pug named Maurice who barks at the scrolling headlines on the nightly news. It looks like working through dialogue while folding laundry, trying not to plot novels at the office or on weekly trips to the market, and writing in my Moleskine during archery lessons.

My earliest stories were very glamorous — Sweet Valley meets Pine Valley (oh, yes, I just went straight to All My Children). Fabulous success, splashy materialism, exotic locales: your basic teenage nightmare. These days, I find the beauty in small town love stories.

Tap into that gorgeous weirdness at the core of your unique destiny: the inspired lunacy that would evolve into genius if you ever learned to make it sing and dance.*
