Where You'll Find Me

So, I haven't blogged in a few months. Oops. But I have a good reason! I was busy editing my debut novel, WHERE YOU'LL FIND ME, coming to you January 7, 2014 from Entangled Teen! (Cue flailing. And also massive panic.)

For those of you who have known me for a while, WHERE YOU'LL FIND ME is the manuscript formerly known as GARAGE BOY. Here is the gorgeous cover and the description:

When Hanley Helton discovers a boy living in her garage, she knows she should kick him out. But Nate is too charming to be dangerous. He just needs a place to get away, which Hanley understands. Her own escape methods (vodka, black hair dye, and pretending the past didn't happen) are more traditional, but who is she to judge?

Nate doesn't tell her why he's in her garage, and she doesn't tell him what she's running from. Soon, Hanley's trading her late-night escapades for all-night conversations and stolen kisses. But when Nate's recognized as the missing teen from the news, Hanley isn't sure which is worse: that she's harboring a fugitive, or that she's in love with one.

This book started back in 2010, when I walked into a dark garage, sneezed, and thought to myself, "Wouldn't it be weird if a stranger in the garage said, 'Bless you?' Wouldn't it be weirder if the stranger was actually living in the garage? And wouldn't it be weirdest if the girl who discovers the stranger didn't kick him out, but fell in love with him instead?"

The answer to those questions was obviously "yes," and the story was born. I absolutely loved writing it, and I hope you enjoy reading it!
