November appearance!

I'll be doing a benefit for the Women's Center of Chapel Hill on November 6th with the AMAZING Lee Smith, author of On Agate Hill, The Last Girls and Fair and Tender Ladies. Lee and I are old friends, so it should be a great time. For more info on tickets and times, check out the Women's Center Website.

Lock and Key now a bestseller!

Thanks to EVERYONE who came out for my appearances, Lock and Key hit the New York Times Bestseller list at #2. Hooray! I am so grateful to all of you for your support and kind words, you have no idea.

I'm home now, done with the traveling, and trying to unpack while chasing around my daughter, who just learned to crawl and is now FAST. I'm exhausted! But in a good way.

Oops, there she goes again. Gotta go! Thanks again!
