I went to Rosemary Beach Florida for the first time in the spring of 2012.

Wicked gave us a story that The Wizard of Oz did not. Two sides to every story.

Football games on Friday nights followed by field parties every weekend was how I spent my high school years.

I grew up in a small town in Alabama and there wasnt much in the way of entertainment so like our older siblings before us we drove our pickup trucks out into the hayfield and lit a bonfire.

Fallen Too Far was my first NYT bestseller. That changed my life.

All I can say is I dont encourage younger kids to read my books and actually the biggest age group on my Facebook page is 25- to 35-year-old women.

Until Friday Night is the first book in my new young adult series The Field Party.
