San Juan Island Stories #1 “Fatty Patty”, a light sweet romance perfect for a Northwest summer.
“Fatty Patty” is the cruel nickname that followed Pepper to high school graduation. Five years later, she’s back at her reunion to prove it hasn’t defined her. In her slim Kate Spades, she’ll show them all — her underachieving classmates and especially the boy who broke her heart.
But Pepper’s not the only one who’s changed in five years. She’s not the only one who has regrets about the things that were, and especially weren’t, said.
And she’s not the only one who plans to use this chance to rewrite history…
Fatty Patty is the first in a series of new short stories set around the crisp green San Juan Islands in Northwestern Washington. Refreshing as an iced vanilla latte and local as a salad with Ranch dressing and sesame seeds, these stories capture the essence that every journey — no matter how far — is truly about finding a way back home.

Hello and welcome.
I am a writer.
My favorite reads are beautiful books like The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle and Pigs in Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver, fun books like Crazy for You by Jennifer Crusie and Avalon High by Meg Cabot, and adventurous books like Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh and Restoree by Anne McCaffrey.
I spend my non-writing time exploring interests in an academic library, hiking around the Pacific Northwest, and waking the neighbors with Rock Band.
