I have a fondness for the beach, my family and good books. I love to read (especially curled up with a good cup of coffee). I also like to travel, ride my bike, walk and go to the movies. When I’m not doing these things, I can be found in my little loft office, writing!
Growing up, I always had my face in a book, and at a pretty young age discovered that I also liked to write. At first I wrote romances that paired me and my friends up with certain pop stars from the 1980s. I moved on to the yearbook and newspaper staffs of my middle and high schools (which was great fun and I got out of class a lot).
In college I decided to get a degree in Creative Writing and many years later finally sat down and wrote my first novel for teens. I love to write stories about family, finding your voice, faith, friends and falling in love.
Somewhere along the line I married a Cubs fan/math genius/funny guy and had two super cool daughters. We live in the Houston area with a half-house cat, half-cheetah named Spencer.
Nora Reid believes scientific laws control everything, even love. With her grandparents’epic first kiss story cemented in her brain, Nora develops a hypothesis she’s determined to prove:for each person in the world, there is exactly one other person, and at first kiss, they’ll experience an immediate and intense reaction.
But after four years of zero-reaction kisses, she comes up with a new theory: maybe that pesky crush on her stunningly hot best friend Eli Costas is skewing her results.
She needs to get rid of him, and fast.
Eli Costas is an injury-prone lacrosse star with a problem—the one chance he had at winning over the girl next door resulted in the most epically sucktastic first kiss ever. And now she’s...trying to get rid of him? Hell no. It’s time to disprove her theory and show her exactly what she’s missing.
Disclaimer: This book contains a stunningly hot lacrosse player who isn’t above playing dirty to win over the stubborn girl-next-door of his dreams.
