USA TODAY and Amazon bestselling author of This Is Not How It Ends, Somebody's Daughter, Where We Fall, The Mourning After, and What We Leave Behind.
A little about me. I was born and raised in Miami, Florida among the chaos of three older siblings. After graduating college, I moved west to Los Angeles where I launched my career at the LA Weekly, running advertising and promotions for film studios and record labels.
After a few colorful years, I returned to Miami, landing my first dream job through an ad in The Miami Herald. Yes, an actual newspaper. For the next ten years, I managed the advertising, marketing, and promotions for every record label in the country at The Box Music Network. Our offices on South Beach were the hub for musicians and record executives worldwide. Work consisted of meeting talented superstars and listening to great music. Fun, right?
Marriage and kids soon followed in the form of dream job number two, and The Box eventually moved to New York. Sometime in between raising the twins, PTA meetings, carpool, flag football, basketball, and lacrosse tournaments, writing freelance, cheering on the Dolphins and Heat, and volunteering at organizations near and dear to my heart, dream job number three took root, and I became a full-time author.
Life has a funny way of happening this way. Doors open and close. Avenues await. One path leads to another. I thought life was fun before, but nothing is more fun than this.
