In other exciting news, THE GOODBYE YEAR has been receiving amazing reviews from early readers, including bestselling authors like Kate Hilton! Here is what she thought!

"The Goodbye Year is a book about the profound transition that takes place in families as children prepare to graduate from high school and begin independent lives.  Told from varying perspectives – husbands, wives, sons, and daughters – The Goodbye Year offers a fascinating glimpse behind the façade of perfection in small, well-heeled community where image is everything.  As college acceptances roll in, or don’t, and marriages evolve, or don’t, parents and children alike struggle to write a future for themselves that may not be the one they planned.  A compassionate, wise, and suspenseful tale about the end of one life stage and the beginning of another."

Kate Hilton, International Bestselling Author of HOLE IN THE MIDDLE

(If you haven't read Kate's book, Hole in the Middle, you should by the way!)


I can't wait until The Goodbye Year is out in the world! I hope you'll add it to your TBR shelf on Goodreads, too!

In other book world news, I finally have a new headshot. Why is that process so nerve-wracking, I just don't get it? But my photographer Kristin and her partner Deseree of Blue Sky's Studio in Laguna Beach made the experience fun, and I think the photo turned out as good as it, could given the subject!
