Release Date: January 18th 2016
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Chick Lit, British Literature, New Adult
Synopsis: Family can be complicated. Especially when skeletons from the past pop up unexpectedly. For American Evie Gray, finding out her deceased mother had a secret identity, and not one of the caped crusader variety, was quite the surprise. Evie’s mom had a secret life before she was even born, one that involved tiaras.

In this modern day fairytale, Evie is on a path to figure out who her mom really was, while discovering for herself what the future will hold. Charged with her late mother’s letters, Evie embarks on a quest into her past. The first item on the list is to attend Oxford, her mom’s alma mater. There, Evie stumbles upon a real life prince charming, Edmund Stuart the second Prince of England, who is all too happy to be the counterpart to her damsel in distress.

Evie can’t resist her growing attraction to Edmund as they spend more time together trying to unravel the clues her mother left behind. But, when doubts arise as to whether or not Edmund could ever be with an untitled American, what really ends up unraveling is Evie’s heart. When Evie uncovers all the facts about her mom’s former life, she realizes her mom’s past can open doors she never dreamed possible, doors that can help her be with Edmund. But, with everything now unveiled, Evie starts to crack under the pressure of new family responsibilities and the realization that her perfect prince may want her for all the wrong reasons.

  1. Tell us a little about The Heir And The Spare, and your main characters?
The Heir and the Spare follows American Evie Gray on a quest to Oxford and throughout England as she’s trying to discover the true identity of her deceased mother. On her journey Evie uncovers a long lost family member, a strength she never knew she had, and a love she never expected. I like to think of it as a modern day fairytale.
And Evie, she’s smart, hard-working, and loves her friends and family. She can also be a bit immature and jump to conclusions bit too easily. 

As for Edmund, he’s pulled between what his family and his royal role demands of him and what he really wants in his life. Deciding to follow your own dreams and not someone else’s plans for you is harder than you think.

2. What is the hardest challenge you face as a writer?

Balance. Making the time for my writing, but also making sure that I’m present for my family. When I get in the groove it can be tough to pull away, but sometimes I have to. Although, when I’m on a deadline, they’re good and understand.

3. Your top five young adult novels:
--Mrs. Mike
--Harry Potter series
--Anna and the French Kiss
--Mortal Instruments Series
J--osephine Angelini’s Starcrossed series

4. This or That:
-- Katniss Everdeen or Celaena Sardothein 
Katniss Everdeen (Only cause I haven’t read Throne of Glass yet. *winces and ducks* It’s on my TBR.) 

-- Italian or Chinese 
Ooh, that’s tough . . . Italian

-- Laptops or iPads
Laptop, because it’s easier for me to write on.
