Advanced Praise for Tell Me a Secret - Unveiled!

It's on Amazon now, so I guess that means it's public and I can share... My other incredible, top-secret blurb for Tell Me a Secret can now be revealed!

Deb Caletti, NBA Finalist and author of Honey, Baby, Sweetheart and her latest, The Secret Life of Prince Charming, said about my novel:

"Tell Me a Secret is a gripping, emotional story about a young girl with a tragic past and an uncertain future. I dare you to set it down during its last hundred pages. I dare you."

(!!!)

I had met Deb briefly at a couple of book parties here in Seattle, but I had the chance to talk with her at Janet Lee Carey's Stealing Death launch party a few weeks ago. It was all I could do not to gush all over her with gratitude and fangirl-ness. Plus she recently shared the equally top-secret recipe for Caletti Family Corn Flake Pie.

So I am amazed and utterly honored to have been read - and enjoyed - by two of my very favorite authors, Ms. Caletti and Ellen Hopkins, whose works astound me with their honesty and hope. Thank you both!

  5. I couldn't put it down, either. And it's possibly I might have left a certain backyard party to finish. :-)
