Synopsis: Charlie is down to her absolute. Total. Last. Resort. Despite a thoroughly comprehensive list of potential cherry poppers, er…suitors, and careful plotting, Charlie is three weeks into her devirginzation campaign, still untouched, and getting desperate. In the movie of her life, this aspiring screenwriter is giving herself a PG, for please, get some. Her project goes into freeze frame when her mom checks herself into rehab and packs Charlie off to live with her estranged, or just plain strange, grandfather, Monty. How is she supposed to get a date when she has to go pick up his Depends?

Enter Eric, a hot rehab grad on the road to redemption, and the only one who can make Charlie rethink her strategy. The more she gets to know him, the more convinced she becomes that is the one, and not just another to add to the list of people who will abandon her. In this hilarious and heartbreaking story of one girl’s detoured road to womanhood, Charlie’s list develops a life of its own – right when she realizes there’s so much more to lose.

What can you tell us about your up and coming title from Bloomsbury?

Here’s the official blurb for MY SOON TO BE SEX LIFE:

If you could celebrate Valentine’s day with any fictional character who would it be and why and what would you do on the day?

Since I adore chocolate and one of my favourite “sweet” novels is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I’d love to spend Valentine’s Day at the factory with Willy Wonka, inventing (and eating!) all sorts of heart-shaped, fantastical goodies.

Thanks so much for hosting us!


Title: Cry of the Sea

Publisher: Fire & Ice Young Adults Novels (February, 2014)

Synopsis: Juniper Sawfeather is choosing which college to attend after graduation from West Olympia High School next year.  She wants to go to San Diego to be far away from her environmental activist parents.  They expect her to think the way they do, but having to be constantly fighting causes makes it difficult to be an average 17 year old high school student.  Why do her parents have to be so "out there?"

Everything changes when she and her father rush to the beach after a reported oil spill.  As they document the damage, June discovers three humans washed up on the beach, struggling to breathe through the oil coating their skin.  At first she thinks they must be surfers, but as she gets closer, she realizes these aren't human at all.

They're mermaids!

Now begins a complex story of intrigue, conspiracy and manipulation as June, her parents, a marine biologist and his handsome young intern, her best friend, the popular clique at school and the oil company fight over the fate of the mermaids.


About the Author:

I always liked writing, but what I really wanted to be was a performer.  I grew up in Southern California and got my degree in Drama.  I wrote a lot, but it was just a hobby.  Well, a really time-consuming hobby.  While in college, thanks to a summer of ghost-hunting with a group of friends after graduating from high school, I spent every Winter Break, Spring Break and Summer writing a horror novel on a lap top my dad would bring home from work.  Technically, this was my first YA novel, as all the main characters were teenagers.  Alas, it pretty much stinks, so I never did anything with it.  Plus, as you recall, I wanted to be an actress/singer, so I was doing back to  back shows all through this time and never really put much thought into how to fix the darn thing up and get it published.  It's still in a box.  Maybe someday I'll come back to it.

I've written a number of novels as I slowly learned that I actually liked writing more than acting.  In 1995 I had my first story published in Catalyst Magazine, and then I was all about moving my career in that direction.  I did act professionally for a long time, and now I do community theatre in Nashville with my family for fun.  I joined SCBWI a while back, and it is because of a couple workshops I took with them that I decided to rewrite my fledgling mermaid catastrophe of a novel into something that a publisher decided to put into print.  I'm a big fan of looking back into that box of good but poorly written ideas and trying again.  I'm doing that now with another book about a young surfer who encounters a dragon hidden in a cave at the beach with the best waves.

What can you tell us about Cry of the Sea?

Cry of the Sea is about Juniper Sawfeather, the daughter of environmental activists that are pushing their careers on her.  When she is helping her father at an oil spill, she discovers three mermaids washed ashore.  Do these mermaids get up, start talking to her and take her on adventures?  No.  It’s not that kind of story.  It’s about Juniper and her attempts to figure out how to save them.  She meets a handsome college intern named Carter who tries to help her, but things keep going wrong.  Thanks to her meddling best friend, a video of the mermaids gets leaked on the internet and people come flocking to the beach to go mermaid spotting.  Her parents are being difficult because they want to use the mermaids for their causes.  The scientist at the marine rescue center wants to use the discovery of mermaids to become famous.  Then the mermaids disappear.  The oil company may have had something to do with it.  Now, along with Carter and the unlikely group of popular kids from her high school, she’s going to try to find the mermaids and rescue them.

If you could celebrate Valentine’s day with any fictional character who would it be and why and what would you do on the day?

Willie Wonka (the Gene Wilder version).  I think it would be fun to spend the day making and eating Valentine’s candy in his wacky factory.

I review based on many different things from the writing, to the story - to the characters and how I can relate to them or how they are developed. I also review based on if an author has worked their magic and was able to draw me into a story so deeply that I don't want to put the book down.
