I spent all of my childhood reading and loving stories, scribbling down my own in the journals that are still stuffed in my closet. Later, I frantically typed them into word documents.


Ever since I was six, it was my dream to walk into a bookstore and find a story I'd written on the shelf.

And now it's actually coming true. Like. For real.



It's pretty scary. And awesome. Also I can't quite believe it.

I'm so grateful to all the people who helped me along the way: those who supported me and cheered me on, and those who inspired me even if they didn't know it.


I hope some of you readers will pick it up and enjoy it, and maybe even love it. I'll never be able to explain how much this book meant to me while I was writing it. It was a promise of better things to come, and it kept me going through a lot of scary moments. I'm so grateful I got to tell this story and continue telling it in the sequels. I hope you'll stick with Clementine to see where she ends up.

If you'd like to buy Extraction, you can find lots of purchase links here.

If you do buy it, or check it out from the library, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Your support means the world. <3



Rebellion Cover Reveal

We are down to less than ONE WEEK until Extraction hits shelves!!! I'm so freaking excited for it to be out in the world. And nervous. But mostly excited.

In the meantime, in case you missed it yesterday, the cover for Rebellion, the second book in the Extraction trilogy, was revealed on the Griffin Teen facebook page!

Isn't it so pretty?! I want to frame it and put it on my wall.

Rebellion hits shelves FEBRUARY 10, 2015. I hope you'll pick up Extraction and enjoy it enough to read book 2, because Rebellion is my favorite in the trilogy so far. Just sayin'. (Of course, I'm still in the middle of writing book 3.)
