The Calm After the Storm

This past spring was, to put it mildly, rather chaotic. I had several book events, including two the week FADED released, so I took a much-needed break through the beginning of August.

Other writers have been nice enough to share their space with me. Check out my interview with Sharon Ledwith and my guest post over at Krysten Lindsay Hager’s blog. AND I made it to the front page of the Grand Haven Tribune!
