THE New York Series

TRULY-thumbnailThree full-length novels revolve around a Green-Bay-Packers-themed bar in Greenwich Village, where Cheeseheads and Manhattanites are thrown together to find happily-ever-after. Eventually.

TRULY – Coming August 2014 – now a free serial on Wattpad!

May Fredericks hates New York. Which is fair enough, since New York seems to hate her back. Just weeks after moving from Wisconsin to Manhattan, she receives the world’s worst marriage proposal, stabs her boyfriend with a shrimp fork in a very public venue, and accidentally becomes notorious. And that’s before she gets mugged. At her wit’s end, May washes up at a Packers bar in Greenwich Village, where she meets a surly, unhelpful guy who hates her shoes and calls her ex a douche.

His name is Ben. He used to be a chef. Now he’s a rooftop beekeeper with anger management issues. She wouldn’t even like him, but he reminds her of home … and he knows where to find all the best food in the Village. She makes him laugh. He buys her tacos and cowboy boots. The longer they’re stuck together, the better May and Ben get along … and the harder they fall. TRULY is a quirky, modern New York love story unlike any you’ve read before.

MADLY – Coming October 2014

COMPLETELY – Coming December 2014


but are you ever going to write. . .

. . . a sequel to About Last Night?

I don’t know. Maybe? I have a teeny germ of an idea for one, but not much to be going on with.

. . . a sequel to Ride with Me?

Possibly! I’d love to write a book for Tom’s sister, Taryn, and I know who her hero is and how they meet and everything. Tom and Lexie are in it. I’ve even written a prequel thingy! We’ll see.

. . . more Camelot books after Making It Last?

Probably. But I don’t have contracts or publication dates for any of them yet, and I haven’t started writing. So it’s bound to be a while. I have a vague plan to focus future Camelot books around the Mazzaras — I think I’m more or less done with the Clarks.

. . . a happy ending for Patrick, Tony Mazzara’s brother in How To Misbehave?

I hope so! I know what happens to Patrick, and in my head I have his happy ending all worked out. I hope to get this one on the calendar for 2015. Fingers crossed! (I’ll warn you though, it’s all very weeeeeepy.)

. . . something completely different and unexpected?

Why, yes! So glad you asked. I like to do new stuff, and I’m in the middle of adopting another pen name and branching out into a new subgenre. It’s all super secret so far, but stay tuned.

My backburner projects include an old-neighbor/new-neighbor romance about a cheese shop owner and a sexy-but-unemployed Green Bay roofer, a reunion romance between a park ranger hero and a free-solo climber heroine, a gubernatorial marriage of convenience, and a historical (gasp!) novel set in late-nineteenth-century Oregon featuring an educated spinster bride from the East and a very angsty, silent, sexy German immigrant. Among other things.

So … yes. Keeping it interesting, driving my editors crazy, etc. Same old! Stick with me, folks, and I’ll take you places. Sometimes they won’t necessarily be on your agenda, these places. You’ll have to trust me. It’ll be good, baby.
