Future Threat Release Day & Tour!


I'm so excited because FUTURE THREAT, book 2 in the New York Times bestselling Future Shock Trilogy, is out today! Plus, I'm going on tour for the book - maybe I'll be near you?

Six months ago Aether Corporation sent Elena, Adam, and three other recruits on a trip to the future where they brought back secret information—but not everyone made it back to the present alive. Now Elena’s dealing with her survivor’s guilt and trying to make her relationship with Adam work. All she knows for sure is that she’s done with time travel and Aether Corporation.

But Aether’s not done with her—or Adam, or fellow survivor Chris. The travelers on Aether’s latest mission to the future have gone missing, and Elena and her friends are drafted into the rescue effort. They arrive in a future that’s amazingly advanced, thanks to Aether Corporation’s reverse-engineered technology. The mission has deadly consequences, though, and they return to the future to try to alter the course of events.

But the future is different yet again. Now every trip through time reveals new complications, and more lives lost—or never born. Elena and Adam must risk everything—including their relationship—to save their friends.

More Than Distance Is Out Now!



More Than Distance, the final novel in the Chasing The Dream series, is out now! If you've been patiently waiting for Carla to get her happy ending, the wait is over!


She’s off-limits, but he’s the only one who can help her…

Carla Jackson has her life all mapped out, so when her plans fall apart she’s more lost than ever. A spot on the reality TV show Road Trip Race seems like the perfect escape, except she needs a partner. The only option is her brother’s best friend: the man she’s secretly loved forever and the last person she wants to be stuck in a car with.

Tech billionaire Ryan Evans has done everything he can to put his bitter past behind him. He’s avoided Carla ever since they shared a forbidden kiss six years ago, but when his best friend asks him to protect her on the show, he can’t refuse—even if the biggest threat to her heart might be himself.

As Carla and Ryan drive across the country while competing on the show, there’s no escaping the undeniable chemistry between them. But when they’re thrown off course, can they find their way home together?

Two Cover Reveals!

Today I have not one, but TWO cover reveals for you - because I have two releases in early 2017! Whether you're a fan of my romance or my YA, you'll have something new to read from me very soon. 

First up, USA Today has the exclusive cover reveal for Future Threat, plus a giveaway! Here's a hint:



My publisher Albert Whitman gave me a lot of input on this cover, which was awesome. My favorite things are the new origami unicorn tattoo on Elena's arm, the sunset colors behind her, and how she looks like she's ready to face anything. Plus, check out the Los Angeles behind her - it's a bit different than the one from Future Shock!

Future Threat comes out March 1, 2017. Pre-order the hardcover here (ebook and audiobook preorders coming soon):


Next, I'm excited to reveal the cover for More Than Distance, the 5th book in the Chasing The Dream series!

I love this cover so much because the models my photographer Lindee Robinson found are so perfect for the characters. Also, I love the little cars and other details my cover designer Najla Qamber added. Carla's book has been a long time coming and I hope readers enjoy her story!
