A New GURLS Snippet For You!

GURLS Promo PLW_1

Continue reading for the full snippet…


Best friends are magical beings that soften the harsh realities of life into a bearable experience we can survive. Without them we would be lost, simply floating around the world like plucked dandelion seeds, drifting in a sea of pretty little weeds at the whim of the temperamental winds, hoping to land on something solid long enough to grow into the beautiful flowers or mighty trees we are meant to be. Best friends help us fly higher than we can see, but also anchor us down when we need it, because best friends, the truly good ones, know everything there is to know about us; what keeps our soul fed and our spirit happy, and what can crush us in a millisecond.

So, when we lose a best friend, they take with them a sliver of our heart, something that won’t grow back, something that heals with time, but will leave a mark. And they also take with them our deepest, most trusted secrets, because a best friend knows everything. A secret is something to be guarded and looked after, to be kept under lock and key, shared only with the most trusted people in our lives. Tell me, what are we supposed to do when a best friend leaves and those secrets are released?

Because I’m here. Alone again. Holding on tight to secrets that can destroy everything. Like old starlight in the sky, remnants of what used to be, I feel myself fading away, heavy from the pain, the loss and the terrifying future of a world that feeds off hate. I am broken here, without my gurls. I need them back. All of them.

Snippet Love For the Fans

GURLSComingSoonBanner1

For those who say that happiness is simply a state of being, like choosing which flavor syrup to add to your morning Starbucks, or smiling at yourself in the mirror every morning after brushing your teeth, screw you. Those people have never had their heart broken, or lost someone so beautiful and exceptional that they fuse to your soul and become completely and totally irreplaceable. Maybe those people have been lucky in life. I am not one of those people. And after what happened Freshman year, I will never be one of those people. I don’t want to be, because ignorance is not bliss, and the privileged have short memories. I will never forget.

Tuesday Teaser – WHIL is Coming Soon!

It’s right around the corner – the release of the 4th Find Me book, ‘Where Hope is Lost’. You’ll need to wear your big kid panties for this book, y’all. Things are messy in Riley’s world.

“Stay down,” Jin warned.

Two more shots. That was five total. From all fours, I searched the shadows for answers. They played with my eyes, twisting and morphing into shapes that weren’t real. We couldn’t crawl back to the cabin, but I couldn’t stand either. A shift was happening in my brain; reality and fantasy became dance partners, mingling and moving in tandem. Every shadow of the forest turned into someone I knew. Matt leered at me from behind a tree, with Bobby and Alan shimmering into shape beside him. My head spun. Skip stepped out from behind the skeletal remains of a bush, a smile on his broad face. Fin was there too, talking from across the woods. He waved for me to come to him, to follow him down the trail. At his back, two children, my children, darted from one tree to another, laughing. Fin kept talking, his mouth moving with urgency, but I couldn’t hear him. I couldn’t hear anything. 

“What’s he saying,” I asked. “I can’t hear…” Someone tugged on my arm as Fin turned away from us, fading into the trail like mist. “Wait,” I called. “Wait for me!”

Both my arms were lifted and my heels brushed against the ground as I was dragged away. I felt it coming, another break that would take me out of this world and into another, but then the scenery changed and I was set down hard on my ass. My cheek exploded from pain. Jin had slapped me hard across the face. While a tear ran out of my left eye from the sting, I stared up at him, shocked.

“Are you here?” he demanded, his voice thick with concern. “Are you here with me?”

I nodded, trembling in every joint, unsure of what was real and what wasn’t. “I’m here,” I said. “I’m here.”

He bent forward and yanked me upright. With his face an inch from mine, he hissed, “Then run!”

If you’ve gotten this far with Riley and her crew, you know the stakes for survival in the new world are high, love can be found and then lost, and the dead are still hanging around. She’s always been one to hold onto hope, but in her latest journey, Riley realizes that hope can’t save them all…

“Who?” I screamed in his face. “Who was it?”

He tried to answer, but choked instead. I screamed louder, as if that would force the words out of his closed windpipe. Jin had to peel me off the kid, and I didn’t go quietly. I clawed. Kicked. Screamed. Demanding to know who had died on their way out of the compound. Was it Connor? Was it Jacks? Was it Drake? But the boy wouldn’t answer me – he couldn’t – he was on all fours, gasping for air as Jin half-carried and half-shoved me as far away as he could manage. He didn’t release me until my flailing arms hit home, and I struck his jaw with a right hook. After I tripped over a small end table and landed on my ass, Jin fell into the wall that separated the living space from the bathroom.

The roaring in my ears sounded eerily like the popping of the fireplace, and I looked over my shoulder at the spurting fire, the metallic taste of blood filling my mouth from biting my tongue. It blended with the sweet aftertaste of Jin’s tea, but I refused to swallow. I spit into the fire, and watched the heat sizzle and smoke over the small wet spot until it was gone, leaving no trace of my blood behind.

One of us was dead, and the kid couldn’t tell me who. The rest were out in these mountains somewhere, looking for me, or frozen already from the cold. There was nothing I could do but sit in the treehouse and wait for the snow to melt. I was going to go crazy weeks before that happened.
