Hello, and welcome to my website, where you can read excerpts from my first two books, We Take Me Apart and Desire. Or view #littlebitsoffit from Fit Into Me, the third installment of my ongoing series.

"Get your shit together. . . . I have complete confidence in you."

I don't know about you, but my dusty fingers are out of practice. It's time to start working them out again, I fear. I've got a manuscript due in fifteen days. Will I complete it on time? And also: why do I always do this? I did it with WTMA, for which I also pulled this little stunt, too: I frantic-emailed my publisher and said, "I need a kick in the ass." She replied, "Get your shit together." And then she wrote, "I have complete confidence in you." (JAT basically said the same thing when I did it to him.) I wrote back, "I will bring it," but that was bravado talking, taking over. Now that it is a new day, I'm back to procrastinating, doing everything but write the damn thing. But, as I've told myself before, in 2 days I'm going to get on a plane, I will be separated from the Internet for 18 days, and I will write the damn thing then, OK? I even have an outline! And I will stick to it! It's just a first draft that's due, anyway. It will be OK.
