- I wrote a piece for the Perspectives blog at Open Ink Press about time, selfishness, and creativity. A tiny taste: “In my more honest moments, I have come to suspect I like writing because it is selfish, because it is useless. So much of my day is about what I can do, what I can make. My writing isn’t—which is to say so far it hasn’t been—useful. This is extra. This is different. The beauty in this comes from what it is not.” You can read the whole thing here.
- This is one of those things that doesn’t make a huge difference to readers, but I’m now represented by Deidre Knight at The Knight Agency. She’s lovely and excited about my writing, and I’m thrilled to be working with her. If you’re one of the few, the proud, the people who like my contemporaries, I’m working on new series. (Yay!) I won’t have any concrete news for a while, but the wheels are turning and all that.
- I’m so excited about the trailer for Hidden Figures, and I know I’m doing branding right since approximately a dozen people either emailed or Tweeted to me about it. Genevieve and I are currently writing Star Crossed (Bev and Geri’s book); we’ll have news soon on our mailing list about it and…other things.
- If you’re have a manuscript sitting around and need something to do with it, my local RWA chapter’s contest just opened. I can verify that the final round judges are impressive. Go forth and enter!

Congratulations on the new agent.
Thank you! Your advice was so helpful. I appreciated it tremendously.
Yay. Good to hear!
Congrats on the agent! Also, just read your essay. Just lovely :)
Thank so much!
Longtime lurker here, delurking to say this: I LOVE your contemporaries. I’ve been trying to get into romance (long story, but for work —> academic here), and yours and Cecilia Grant’s are the only ones that really worked for me as a reader. Please know we are out there!!
Thank you for delurking! I’m so thrilled you enjoyed my DC series. Hopefully I’ll be able to sell these other books and share them with you. ; )
