Book News!

The ink on the contract is dry! I am finally allowed to make an official announcement!

My next book, THIS ORDINARY LIFE, will be coming out next October! Check out the blurb below for a little more about the book.


Sometimes Hope is the Most Extraordinary thing of all.

High-school radio host Jasmine Torres's life is full of family dysfunction, but if she can score the internship of her dreams with a NYC radio station, she knows she can turn things around.

That is, until her brother Danny’s latest seizure forces her to miss the interview, and she’s back to the endless loop of missing school for his doctor appointments, picking up the pieces of her mother’s booze-soaked life, and stressing about Danny’s future.

Then she meets Wes. He’s smart, cute, and the perfect combination of funny and sweet. He also happens to have the same condition as her brother. Wes is living a normal life despite his medical issues, which gives Jasmine hope for Danny. But memories of her cheating ex-boyfriend keep her from going out with Wes, no matter how many times he asks her.
Jasmine can’t control everything. Not who wins the internship, not her mother’s addiction, not her brother’s health, and not even where her heart will lead her. But that doesn’t mean she can’t try to live each day as if it were a somewhat ordinary life.
