Thank you.

If He had Been with Me  is  #3 on the New York Times bestseller list for YA e-books!

This is a total surprise. The e-book version was on sale last week, but no one expected this to happen. Clearly, my readers have been recommending my book. Thank you to each and everyone of you who has told friends and family about If He had Been with Me. 

Thank you so much.

My 2nd novel is out! I am the author of 2 books!

When I wrote my first novel, I was processing my past; mapping out what made me the person that I am.  I was trying to tell the readers what I had learned, how hard those lessons had been.

When I wrote my second novel, I was thinking of my future, of my readers’ futures. This is a novel about passions and hopes. I was trying to inspire my readers.

I was sick with Multiple Sclerosis while writing this novel, but I didn’t know it. What I knew was that I was tired, that I felt like I was carrying a burden that I could never set down. Where If He had Been with Me is long and ponderous, This Song is (Not) for You is short and intense.

There will be those who loved my first novel who will not enjoy my second, but I also think there will be those who will like my second novel better than my first, there will be those who love my second but can’t get through my first.

It’s out there now on the shelves of major retails and wherever books are sold online. Here’s the Amazon link, and thank you for reading.

PS My novel was significantly inspired by The Icebergs. Check them out.
