Thank you Lynn!!! This book means a lot to me, because it comes from my own experience. I'm so glad it is getting this great reception.

Congratulations, Barbara. WTG!

I wanted to share with you that my new ebook After is getting great reviews: 

Lauren gets a phone call from her father while he is having a heart attack. What will happen to her and her family after the phone call? Will Lauren’s father recover? How will Lauren cope with her new feelings for Joey her best friend from kindergarten?

"The conversations seem so real. I almost felt like I was eaves-dropping in their lives!"

"Full of emotion and heartache AFTER will make the reader hope for a happy ending and doesn’t disappoint for good story telling"

Check it out for teens and up if you are looking for a sweet romance as a gift:
