Every Writer Needs a Hobby

I Asked, She Answered

Writing's my hobby really. Well, that and reading. It's all I do in any free time I have.

Actually, not just in free time, I'll crowbar it in to any time available. I'd read walking along the road if I could get away with it.

Jessie Hearts NYC - Released July 7, 2011

Following a humiliating break-up, Jessie escapes to New York to spend the summer with her mother. If only her mother had any time to spend with her. New Yorker Finn is in love with his best friend's girlfriend and trying hard not to be. They'd be perfect together. But first they have to find each other.

The Book Trailer - Jessie Hearts NYC

This is actually one of the finer looking book trailers I have seen if I do say so myself.

Emma Hearts LA - Released June 2012

"Emma's just arrived in Los Angeles, a million miles away from all her friends, and any chance of a boyfriend. Unless you count geeky Oscar - which she doesn't. Not at first, anyway. Teen heartthrob Alex might have potential too. If she can get him away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi, that is. Two boys, unlimited sunshine, and a new life amongst the stars. Maybe LA's not that bad, after all."

Keris is just revving up the fun in the third installment of this series.
