Next Up.

Maren Cole survived adolescence by relying on her intellect, but has never felt more different as an adult. The diagnosis she received as a person with Autism makes functioning in a fast-paced city with bright lights and big sounds a challenge. Forget about dating. Forget marriage. She would like to survive a conversation. Independence has never been more isolating or confusing and is complicated by a situation that puts her directly in the path of arrogant lawyer Caleb Allan.

Caleb isn’t interested in anyone except himself and his legal career. The one person he doesn’t need to spend time with is the weird and awkward Maren Cole, but their interactions are unavoidable when she has the potential to push his career ahead. Forced to confront the fact that she’s unlike anyone he’s ever met, Caleb knows falling for her will destroy his work. He may also lose his heart to a woman who may never fully love him back.

Brand new. 


Winter’s Heist is officially here! The idea began over two years ago (seems like forever) after a visit to the Houston Museum of Natural Science where I spent time in the Fabergé Egg exhibit. The book began as a lighthearted romance that quickly turns dark. I love to use my writing to explore how characters cope with unexpected change and how the things we think we want don’t always hold true when we are put to the test. So. What are your questions for me? What do you want to know about this book? I’m looking forward to answering! You can drop me a note on social media or

Insta love and all things Bookish. 

Cozy up.
