The Crush is Now Available!

Today’s the day! *Blubbers like a baby*

Y’all… the first line of this book was written way back in August 2011, just over nine years ago. When that first line was written, I never imagined this book would ever be published, let alone that it would receive the best feedback any of my books have received to date. I’d like to thank every single lovely person who has read and reviewed The Crush so far, everyone who has sent me a personal message about the book, and for everyone who has liked, shared, and fangirled with me in the months leading up to today.

Y’all are amazing! ❤

Inspiration Behind Writing The Crush

The Crush: Chapter One Preview

What is The Crush about?

Never settle for anything less.

A combination hopeless romantic and old soul trapped in a teenager’s body, closet musician Emery Brooks wonders if she’ll ever find a love as timeless as her grandparents’. Fear of judgment and social alienation due to her older brother’s past mistakes render her incapable of writing a love song. Still, Emery holds fast to the ideals her Grandma Adeline instilled in her from a young age, vowing to allow God to handwrite her love story, to never settle for anything less.

That is, until love cynic Sawyer Alston enters her world. Broken by the wrath of his parents’ failed marriage, Sawyer has been uprooted from everything he’s ever known and now sees love as a void of empty promises. When Emery and Sawyer meet due to their mothers’ rekindled friendship, Emery soon realizes she’s in over her head.

For, despite her resistance, her first crush, her first glimpse at love, involves a boy who doesn’t believe in love at all.

As an author and blogger, my goal is to teach writers that there is a way to write realistic, thought-provoking, redemptive Christian fiction that honors God while not sugarcoating the realities of the world.

  1. It is a great feeling when you see the finished product knowing all the constant editing and revising to finaallu arrive at the idea you want and then share it with the world. Until the next idea comes and the process begins.
