New Book Deal Announcement! (and how a story goes from idea to signed book contract)

So this happened: That’s right, I have a new book deal! This book will be my YA debut, and the hardcover will be hitting shelves in Fall 2017. Here’s how this story happened: While I was on contract with Kensington and busily writing my three AB&T books, a germ of an idea occurred to me. First, you have to understand that I’m a big lover of all things Great Britain.… Read the rest

10 Fabulous Books Set In Italy

Last year, I curated a list of my favorite books set in Paris. This year, I’m turning my attention to Italy. For one thing, my latest book (which comes out on June 23rd) is set in Venice.

Cover Reveal for A BRILLIANT DECEPTION!

As an author, waiting for your cover can be a nail-biting experience. Covers are so important, yet most of the time we have little (to no) say in its design. My editor at Kensington is great–he always gives me the opportunity for input, and I usually make up a Pinterest page of ideas and comparables. Even still…you never know how it’s going to turn out.… Read the rest

Top 10 Movies Set In Paris

Is there a more picturesque setting for a movie than the city of Paris? There are so many wonderful books and films from every genre set in the City of Lights. During my Twitter book launch party for A Magnificent Crime (which is set in Paris, of course!) it was one of our most lively discussions. I promised to write a round-up post of movies set in Paris, so here it is.… Read the rest

Blog Tour

My second book is finally out! A MAGNIFICENT CRIME (Agency of Burglary & Theft #2) was released on June 6, and for the past several days I’ve been busy touring around various websites and blogs, as part of my virtual book launch. Here are links to some early reviews and my guest posts: On Strand Magazine’s Mystery Center I wrote a guest post called The Underbelly of Paris, in which I delved into the creepier side of Paris–namely, the catacombs (which are featured in a key scene in my book).… Read the rest

Book Release in 2 Days!

This time of year is incredibly exciting for me…and, I must confess, also a little nerve-wracking. My new book comes out in two days, and while I can’t wait for people to read it, I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t have some butterflies. I hope y’all like it! Some early reviews on Goodreads have been incredibly positive, which is lovely.… Read the rest

A Magnificent Crime on Pinterest

I don’t keep it much of a secret how deeply I love Pinterest. One of my favorite ways to use Pinterest, as an author, is to create a board for each of my books. Recently I’ve been tweaking the board for my next novel, A Magnificent Crime (the sequel to A Beautiful Heist). Basically, it’s a collection of various images that convey the feel and the flavor of the book…plus a few itty-bitty hints about the setting and the story.… Read the rest
