I’m so glad I can finally show you what I’ve been working on! Here’s a little bit more about the book:

14-year-old Katrina Kamiya’s got some pretty good relationships going in her small, magical hometown of Atlantis, Massachusetts. But when she finds out that her long time friend, Matt Michaels, wants to get married to his controlling girlfriend, Katrina starts noticing something off about them.

Until now, Matt had been keeping his relationship problems a secret, but the closer she looks, the more Katrina believes that his problems, and their heartbreaking consequences, are too important for him to ignore. And now, she’s determined to make him face them. Will he hear what she has to say? Or will her feelings about him only get in her way?

If everything goes my way, it’ll be available in July — which means I have to get back to work!

I’ve been saying
“I don’t need more friends”

Funny how,
now that I want them,
they all seem to have
drifted away.
