I am an author who refused to give up her dream. I am now an internationally published novelist and three-time American Bookseller Association “Must Read” author. My originally self-published novel, THE RICHEST SEASON, sold at auction to Hyperion Books and became a Target Breakout Novel, a Book-of-The-Month Club pick in Germany and translated into Italian and Spanish.
I now have three additional novels published: CAPE COD LIGHT (previously published as So Happy Together) also translated into multiple languages THE BOOK LOVER, and THE CEMETERY KEEPER’S WIFE, a historical novel based on true events that has become a book club sensation.

Her gift isn’t just finding the right books for her quirky cast of patrons, it’s also helping them to navigate the unexpected chapters in their own lives.

As for Lucy, who’s left a terrible betrayal behind, she’s about to encounter a plot twist she couldn’t have written when Ruth’s son, a disabled vet who rescues injured raptors, causes her to question everything she thought she wanted.
