In this solo episode of the Thriving Authors Podcast, I’m doing something I’ve never done before: reading you an excerpt of one of my novels! After receiving a bunch of listener requests for more details about my new novel Before & After You & Me (which also happens to be this month’s pick for the Thriving Authors Book Club) I decided it would be fun to give you Chapter One, straight from my voice and my heart. So grab your earbuds and prepare to meet my main character Emma on the day that changes her life forever.

Thank you so much for your support and interest in my writing – it means the world to me to share my books with you! If you do grab a copy for yourself, for a friend, for a teen you know, or even for a Little Free Library – please let me know! I’d love to send you a few small book goodies as a way to say thank you. <3

And I hope you’ll join us for our next meeting of the Thriving Authors Book Club on Wednesday, June 26th at 10am PT, where we’ll be talking about Before & After You & Me and I’ll be answering all of your questions about writing & publishing. Register at for the zoom link. 

(And pssssst it’s okay if you don’t get a chance to read the book before our meeting – please, still join us! There won’t be a pop quiz on the book, I promise. This is all about coming together in community and supporting each other as we manifest our writing dreams!)
