The sheriff's son, Kellan Turner, is not the golden boy everyone thinks he is, and Romy Grey knows that for a fact. Because no one wants to believe a girl from the wrong side of town, the truth about him has cost her everything-friends, family, and her community. Branded a liar and bullied relentlessly by a group of kids she used to hang out with, Romy's only refuge is the diner where she works outside of town. No one knows her name or her past there; she can finally be anonymous. But when a girl with ties to both Romy and Kellan goes missing after a party, and news of him assaulting another girl in a town close by gets out, Romy must decide whether she wants to fight or carry the burden of knowing more girls could get hurt if she doesn't speak up. Nobody believed her the first time-and they certainly won't now-but the cost of her silence might be more than she can bear.
What is the name of your latest book, and if you had to summarise it in less than 20 words what would you say?
My book is called All the Rage. It’s about a girl who is ostracized in her community for speaking up about being sexually assaulted.
How long does it usually take you to write a book, from the original idea to finishing writing it?
It depends on the book—sometimes it takes me a year, sometimes it takes me a few more than that. :)
How do you come up with the Title and Cover Designs for your book/books? Who designed the Cover of your books?
That also depends on the books. My sister thought up the title for my first novel, Cracked Up to Be, and that did create a bit of a theme—all of my book titles are phrases. My covers are designed by Lisa Marie Pompilio at St. Martin’s Press. I love the work she does. She always creates the best possible visual representation of my novels.
