Little Broken Things

Hi, friends! Is anyone still here? I sincerely doubt it because I haven’t blogged in over TWO YEARS. It’s a little hard for me to get my head around that fact because, hello, time flies. How can it be two years since the last time I posted? I must be getting old… (The big 4-0 is coming up this year, but, let’s not talk about that, shall we?)

Anyway, I’m dusting off my blog for a number of reasons, but none so important as this: I have another book coming out. It’s called LITTLE BROKEN THINGS and it’s set to release just before Thanksgiving. And, oh, am I thankful! Honestly, I feel like a debut novelist because by the time LBT comes out, it will have been two and a half years since THE BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS hit shelves. A lifetime in the world of publishing.

And so it begins: biting my fingernails as I hope for endorsements, losing sleep over anticipated reviews, hoping with all my heart that people will love this book and that it will in some small way change them or make them think or reveal something new. And, of course, I get the unparalleled delight of sharing the cover reveal. I’ve been sitting on this cover since November 1 and it has been so hard to keep my little secret! But it’s a secret no more…



“I have something for you.”

When Quinn Cruz receives a cryptic text message from her older sister Nora, she doesn’t think much of it. But when, just hours later, a haunted Nora shows up on Quinn’s doorstep, a chain reaction is put into motion that will change both of their lives forever. Nora’s “something” is more shocking than Quinn could have ever imagined: a little girl. As Quinn struggles to honor her sister’s desperate request and protect a terrified child from the unknown, Nora is facing matters head-on in a life or death struggle that demonstrates the lengths a woman will go to protect the ones she loves.


Do you like it? I hope so. And I hope that it sounds captivating to you. I loved writing it and can’t wait to share more with you about where the story came from and what it means to me. Until then, thanks for sharing my joy!
