Dear Reader,

I’m so excited to tell you about Five Years Gone, my new standalone contemporary romance. About eighteen months ago, the idea for this book hit me in a tidal wave of thoughts—a man deployed to hunt down the world’s most wanted terrorist, the girlfriend he left behind five long years ago. I wanted to write his girlfriend, Ava’s story, how she decides she can’t wait any longer in the state of purgatory she’s been in for five endless years and what happens when she decides to start over and take another chance on love. I’m so proud of Five Years Gone, and I hope you’ll love it as much as I do.

Dear Reader,

Thank you for showing interest in my novel, Fromage à Trois! I’m so glad that I am finally able to share this story with you. Join Ella, who, in a haze of heartbreak after splitting up with the man she thought she was going to marry, makes the only decision that seems rational and buys a one-way ticket to Paris.

Follow along as she struggles to grasp the nuances of French culture and finds herself caught in a love triangle with two men who inhabit opposite ends of the Paris food scene, getting wined and dined by one, and embarking on a challenge to try every type of French fromage with the other.

Rebecca Plotnick, the founder and creator of Every Day Parisian who was kind enough to read this book and give it a review, said that “This book will transport you to the streets of Paris and have you laughing out loud over the complications of love in a foreign city as Ella finds her way and heart.”

Dear Reader,

Have you ever found that a memory is all bound up with a novel you were reading at the time? That’s how it was for me when I remembered a seventh grade music class and a boy whose life would soon be interrupted by tragedy. My memoir is about moments like these when novels were so mixed up with “real life” I could scarcely separate them. Maybe you, a reader, have memories like these yourself.

Dear Reader

We are thrilled to bring you this flirty, sassy and entertaining office romance–a trope we both love, and had a blast writing. Racing around New York City to research the project, we laughed our way through the Big Apple on a quest for muses. Both of us share a passion for storytelling, friendship, and family–and these new characters fall in love the only way we knew how to write them: Awkwardly. Write to us for a chance to win Love Sincerely Yours.
