Everything All At Once

While I continue to try and figure out how this space will grow as I grow (I know I haven’t done much to it for a long while now!) I thought I’d drop off the newly revealed cover for my third book, EVERYTHING ALL AT ONCE. Not one second of your support is taken for […]

Happy book birthday to: The Lost & Found

Last night I couldn’t sleep. I had long and rambling dreams about fountain pens and bookstores. I woke up many times, convinced it was morning—only to have it be more like midnight, one, two. Today’s a big day. My second book, The Lost & Found, is out today. I’m so grateful to have the chance […]

Unboxing The Lost & Found!

The Lost & Found comes out a week from today and the finished copies have arrived!! I made a little unboxing video to celebrate, and I’ll be sharing lots of fun photos and quotes and goodies up until it’s released on July 5. I’ll also be writing up a longer piece talking more about my […]

new ‘do!

The last few weeks have been busy with traveling and writing and editing but I am finally back in LA and ready to share the new (and improved, and gorgeous, and unreal perfect) cover of The Lost & Found! This is my second book, and it comes out two months from today! Check my Twitter […]

and then there were four!

I’ve been sitting on this news for a while so it feels so NICE to be able to send it out into the universe: I’ve signed another 2-book deal with HarperTeen! My second book, The Lost & Found, comes out on July 5, and it will be followed by books 3 and 4 in 2017 […]

eight months to go.

The funniest, most inconsistent friend I have is time: you never know when it’s going to speed up or slow down or pause all together or erupt into a million pieces, leaving you to try and figure out which goes where. Lately it’s been slow and easy: the mornings stretching long and quiet, the sunlight taking […]

cover reveal/ the lost & found.

HERE IT IS! The cover for my second book, The Lost & Found. This one, guys. THIS ONE. My body is practically bursting with impatience to share this book and this story with the world. I basically tore open my chest and let my guts pour onto the page with this book (a gross visual, […]

ten months to go.

The final pass of my second book arrived in the mail yesterday, in a crinkled and oversized manilla envelope that I swung back and forth on the way to my car. It’s been stiflingly hot in Santa Monica, in the high eighties every day, and I’ve gotten accustomed to not doing my hair, to sweating […]

one year since.

  Last year today we were going out to dinner to celebrate the release of my first book, The Half Life of Molly Pierce and today the morning is grey and I am working on a new book, one without a title, one almost done after weeks of doing nothing else but writing- until I feel […]

a thank you, a giveaway.

Today marks one month exactly until the release of my first book, THE HALF LIFE OF MOLLY PIERCE. It feels impossible that in just a month, anyone in the world will be able to get their hands on something I made up and wrote down. THANK YOU ALL for your continued support. I feel so […]
