What a busy week. And it’s only Wednesday. My new novel, Love Complicated, released on May 11, 2015. Tomorrow, my 7th grader takes the court as a member of the varsity high school tennis team to begin the defense of their state title at their regional tournament. Before you ask, yes, she is a starter. She’ll probably be playing #1 doubles. I’m not sure which has been more stressful: the book release or the pending tournament. Being a mom of an athlete is hard work. I can’t imagine what it’s like to be the mom of a professional athlete or any world class athlete.
So while I’m chewing my fingernails watching my kid play, you should pick up a copy of Love Complicated and see how Jalen deals with Austin Suter who is slated to become a world class tennis player.

I hope you all have a joyous week.
So…it’s been ages since I’ve been on this blog. The posting page looks different and as usual I’m having trouble navigating all the changes. Big surprise. The purpose of this post is to introduce my new book and tell you how the story came to life. TaDa…Introducing Love Complicated. The first book of two.
Several months ago a story popped into my head involving a tennis player and a music kid who is only trying to survive high school. It’s no secret that I love sports and these days I’m around tennis a lot. My daughter started playing when she was four years old and yesterday she stepped on the court as a member of the varsity high school team. She’s only a seventh grader. She won her singles match and her doubles match, helping her team win their dual meet.
Love Complicated happened because of the countless hours I have spent watching my kid learn the game of tennis. The practices, the tournaments, and all the wins and losses. Her competitive nature and love of the game shows up in the character of Austin Suter. The book will be out on May 11, 2015 and is currently available for pre-order on the Dreamspinner website. I hope you love the story of Jalen Marten and Austin Suter as much as I enjoyed writing about them.
