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 […]

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, […]

new headshot.

new headshot, new book, new ‘tude. I worked so hard on my second book (a new standalone) and couldn’t be happier that it’s been accepted for publication. Summer ’16! Many more details to come, but for now here’s my new headshot. Feels good to have a little update. Photo cred: Jaimee Dormer  

the give & the take.

It is so easy to explain happiness! Here, I will show you. I am so happy because my book came out on Tuesday. It was the most perfect day. We woke early and S rolled over and said something like, is there anyone in this bedroom that had a book come out today? and I pretended not […]

the day before.

    This week arrived out of nowhere. This week! I’ve been waiting for this week for two years, for my entire life. I’ve been imagining the way it will go. I’m imagining the ways in which it will be important. I’ve been quiet about it. I’ve been letting it come to me; I haven’t […]

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 […]

first lines.

In November of 2012, I left New York City after three and a half years. I’m sure I’ve told the story on here before. I called my parents one afternoon, told them I was going to quit my job to write a book, and asked if I could move into their spare room. At the […]

my molly & erie.

  I wrote them before I met them. I modeled Molly on the girl I wished I could be more like. Wittier and more charming and more outwardly put-together. We shared the same unpleasant thoughts at that age but Molly is so much better at hiding that darkness. I made her real and she was […]
