• 2 Year Publishiversary of Rethinking Fate

    When a friend recently pointed out that it had been two years since Dr. Sheppard’s book, Rethinking Fate, had come out I was shocked and actually went to look the date up online because I knew it hadn’t been that long. Well, guess what? I was wrong. I still can’t believe it, though, and I refuse to do the math and think about how long it’s been since he first showed up in Secrets in the Dark. Time is moving by so fast, and it seems like just yesterday I started writing about him. When Dr. S appeared in Secrets in the Dark, I thought it would be a one-time thing for him to show up, so I didn’t poke […]

  • Hayden Has a Secret – Without Limits Coming Soon!

    I think these might be the cutest characters I’ve ever written. Last month I sat down to figure out what to write next and thought Hayden and Trent (side characters from Beautiful Shame, Book 3) would be a fun and easy book to write.

I just wasn’t sure how that would turn out. The first chapter is where Trent discovers that his best friend […]

  • Jay…coming soon!

    Less than a week to go until you meet Jay. He started out as a random side character and surprised me with how awkward he was. When he showed up in the Pieces series, something about him seemed more lost than my usual characters. Getting to know him and seeing what he’d been going through was an interesting journey. Jay’s book, Untouched, comes out on Friday, and I have to say that while he’s so funny, it’s a bit sad to see how completely confused he is at the beginning of the book. I can’t wait for you to meet him, and I’m curious to see what you think. If you want to see the college world through Jay’s eyes, […]
