Drawn Together is about a girl named
Hailey who returns back to her hometown after four years of college in NYC. At
first, she’s disappointed to find herself back in the small town of Medford, PA
and she’s actively planning her return to New York. Things change when she runs
into Cody West, the boy she had a crush on all throughout high school. Hailey
has to decide whether she’s going to return to the city to pursue her
blossoming career as a children’s book writer or stay back in Medford to
explore her relationship with the boy she’d always wanted.

I left town, but I was definitely exuding a whole new air of confidence, and it
seemed to be attracting positive things. I was finally the girl I’d always
wanted to be.

What exciting story are you working on

Together. We’ll find out what happens with Cody and Hailey, and we’ll see
if the second part of their story takes place in Medford or NYC.

only service areas that are close to home, so I get to spend a fair amount of
time writing. Usually, I write whenever I can during the day and then I write
