The Cat is out of the Bag – title/blurb/cover reveal

The time has finally arrived for me to share the title, cover, and blurb for my fourth novel and I couldn’t be more excited.

Title: How Do You Know?

Genre: Women’s Fiction—-

This is the first book in my new series: Seeking Happily Ever After. Each novel will feature a different character and stand on its own.


What if you were approaching the end of your thirties and all of the life milestones you took for granted in your youth suddenly seemed out of reach?

On the eve of her thirty-ninth birthday, Maggie Piper doesn’t look, act, or feel much different than she did at twenty-nine, but with her fortieth birthday speeding towards her like a freight train, she wonders if she should. The fear of a slowing metabolism, wrinkling of her skin, and the ticking of her biological clock leaves Maggie torn between a desire to settle down like most of her similarly-aged peers and concern that all is not perfect in her existing relationship. When a spontaneous request for a temporary “break” from her live-in boyfriend results in a “break-up,” Maggie finds herself single once again and only twelve months from the big 4.0. In the profound yet bumpy year that follows, Maggie will learn, sometimes painfully, that life doesn’t always happen on a schedule, there are no deadlines in love, and age really is just a number.

Although How Do You Know? shares the humor and sass of my previous novels, it tackles deeper issues as well. I am a life-long devotee to the genre of chick lit and will continue to do my part to keep the genre alive and kicking, but I had a wonderful time delving into uncharted territory in my first women’s fiction novel.  I hold this book very dear to my heart and hope it resonates with a wide audience.

The novel is officially being released on December 2nd.

Please remember to add it to your Goodreads “To-Read” Shelf 🙂
