The Last Word Book Launch Party


 What a lovely group of people! I am so grateful for the friends, family, and even a few fans (I didn't know I had those) who came to support me at The King's English Bookshop in SLC. They were gracious enough to wear the fascinators and pearl earrings that I made. Fancy Nancy would have approved. 
 I was in conversation with Mackenzi Lee and we had a great time talking about Victorian underwear and my book, The Last Word.
The best part of my writer's journey has been the friends that I've made.

(Authors debuting this year: Addie Thorley, me, Erin Stewart, Tiana Smith, Crystal Pasternack, RuthAnne Snow, and Crystal Smith)
There's so many amazing authors in Utah and they are the kindest people you'll ever meet. And sometimes silly, Summer and I are lifting a leg. I'm not sure why.
(More amazing local authors: Emily R. King, Tricia Levenseller, me, Kathryn Purdie, and Summer Spence) 

It was a wonderful night and I am so very grateful.

Readers looking for a light, fun read full of holiday mischief will be delighted by Samantha Hastings'  A Royal Christmas Quandary , perfect for fans of  A Christmas Prince. When you spend Christmas in a castle, anything is possible. 1860. Lady Alexandrina Gailey is looking forward to a cozy holiday at Windsor Castle with her best friend, Princess Alice, and her long-time crush, Lord George Worthington.

The Invention of Sophie Carter

THE INVENTION OF SOPHIE CARTER   is   coming out July 14,  2020 from Swoon Reads / Macmillan 1851. Bounced from one begrudging relative to another their whole lives, orphaned identical twins Sophie and Mariah Carter have always relied on each other for love and support, even though the sisters couldn't be more different. Brash Sophie wants to be an inventor, and demure Mariah wants to be an artist. Both long to visit London for the summer—Sophie to see the Queen’s Great Exhibition and Mariah to study the world’s finest collection of paintings. But when their cantankerous aunt answers their letter pleading for a place to stay, she insists she only has time and room to spare for one of them. So, Mariah and Sophie hatch a clever scheme: They will travel to London together and take turns playing the part of "Sophie". At first the plan runs like clockwork. But as the girls avoid getting caught by increasingly narrow margins and two handsome gentlemen—both

A Dream Come True in the Mail

On my front porch this morning I found a package. Inside there was a beautifully wrapped book from my editor, Emily Settle. I eagerly unwrapped the package and held my finished book for the first time. It's gorgeous! Katie Klimowicz did an amazing job designing both the exterior and the interior of my book.  Dreams do come true. Mine did, only today.  THE LAST WORD
