17-year-old Lily Anderson is ready to wrap herself in a big red bow and give Zach Hewitt the greatest gift in the history of Christmas: Her. But when she pulls a pair of booties from her stocking and learns her forty-year-old mother is pregnant, Lily finds herself adrift, unsure of Zach’s commitment.

Lily hopes Zach will anchor her with promises of love. Unfortunately, his chaotic home-life makes him afraid of those three little words; and Maddie Franklin — in her Amazing Technicolor Dream Thong — makes sure Zach can have her whenever he wants.
With the help of her best friend SarahLily plots to secure her place in Zach’s heart. But after a series of awkward rejections, Lily loses faith in her dream boyfriend, in herself, even in Sarah.
That’s when Lily turns to Adam Connolly, a transfer student whose lash-y eyes and comfortable silences make her question who it is she wants and what she needs. But Adam’s support can’t help her the day Lily discovers her parents’ game-changing secret.
Faced with the truth, Lily must decide how to deal with her family’s past, take hold of her own future, and accept that there are many names for love.

Pain can take a lifetime to heal, but hope lasts even longer…

Corie Harper is twenty-eight years old when she is first visited by a ghost—in the form of a graduation letter she forgot she wrote. Although she spent a decade burying that desperate girl and her regrets, each page resurrects the past, dragging Corie back to a time when all she craved was Scarlet Hinden’s friendship and Tuck Slater’s heart. But she couldn’t keep them both and keep her word.

Scarlet is haunted in her own way, by memories of Corie and of a night that left her wishing she were dead. But Scarlet is not only alive, she’s carrying new life: a baby she never wanted and is terrified to have. Convinced she would be a disastrous mother, she questions whether or not she deserves the love of any man. Especially the father of her child.

Letters for Scarlet traces one friendship from deep roots to branches torn by broken promises and loss.



On the eve of my 40th birthday, I quit my teaching career to become the greatest wife, mother, and best-selling author the world had ever seen. But those goals were clearly too easy so I added one more:

Running my first marathon.

The trials (trails?) and tribulations of training became the subject matter of my first book, a humorous memoir of one woman’s midlife marathon.

Some days she kept the memories buried, but other mornings fragments rushed to the surface. That throbbing behind her eyes. The taste of salt and Corie’s jagged sobs. In all of Scarlet’s recollections, Corie Harper was sobbing.

Former best friends Corie and Scarlet haven’t seen each other since tragedy shattered their friendship and lives a decade ago. With their ten-year high school reunion looming, memories resurface and remind them of everything they lost.

Will Corie and Scarlet have the strength to face each other and repair their relationship? Or has time and heartbreak destroyed the bond forever?
