Very happy to share this news …


I just received news from the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA) and I’m delighted to announce that LOOKING FOR ME has been chosen as a SIBA Okra Pic.  And what is an Okra Pick?

The Okra Picks are a dozen new titles chosen each season that SIBA Indie Booksellers are eager to hand-sell.  These books must be southern in nature and can cover any genre, not just fiction. Each publishing season ushers in a new harvest of Okra Picks, and only SIBA booksellers can make a nomination for this award.

This is wonderful honor!







Exciting news to share …


Indie bookseller nominations for the June 2013 Indie Next List“Great Reads from Booksellers You Trust”are in, and LOOKING FOR ME is a nominee.

Huge thanks to the booksellers across the country!







A wonderful day with spectacular news!



Esteemed Norwegian publisher, Gyldendal, has purchased rights to Looking for Me. They are planning to publish in the late autumn of 2013 and I am over-the-moon thrilled!

Quick Update …


I’ve not posted very much on my blog as my life is crazy right now, but I wanted to give a quick update. It seems like each day holds a gift for me in it’s hands. I’m thrilled to announce that foreign rights to LOOKING FOR ME have sold to esteemed German publisher Kiepenheuer & Witsch, and, large print rights have sold to Thorndike Press (the world’s leading publisher of large print books).




Pictures worth a thousand words…

When I’m asked what my new novel “Looking for Me” is about, I want to simply open my handbag and pull out these pictures …
