Fate brings them together. Fame & lies keep them apart. One truth remains…

She’s become the Paly High girl with the most tragic story…
At 17, Tally Landon just wants to graduate and leave for New York to pursue ballet. Her best friend Marla convinces her to attend one last party—a college party—where she can be among strangers and evade the whisperings about her heartbreaking loss of her twin that follows her everywhere she goes. She meets Lincoln Presley, Stanford’s famous baseball wonder and has a little fun at his expense—when she lies about her age and who she really is—intent on being someone else for the night and escaping her tragic story.

His only focus is baseball, but he can’t forget the girl he saved on Valentine’s Day…
At 22, Lincoln Presley’s star is on the rise—about to finish at Stanford and expected to be taken early in Major League Baseball’s upcoming draft—his cousin’s party serves as a welcome distraction. But then, he sees the girl from Valentine’s Day that he saved from that horrific car accident and can’t quite hide his disappointment when she appears to look right through him and not remember him at all. He vows to learn her name at least before he leaves. What’s the harm in getting to know this girl? What’s the worst that can happen?

They share this incredible connection, but fate soon tests these star-crossed lovers in all kinds of ways...
And yet, despite the lies being told to protect the other, and the trappings of fame that continually separate them, and in lieu of the deception by those they’ve come to trust the most; one truth remains.

This much is true.

***Author's note*** THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

What inspired you to write This Much is True?

The character that became Tally Landon started out as a scene for my writing class with The Writers Studio. At first, her name was Amy. I played around with this idea of this innocent girl hooking up with a bad golden boy. Early readers liked the story so much that it eventually evolved into This Much Is True. And yet, it became apparent about halfway through that I would need to tell the story from Linc’s POV as well which complicated the writing process for me exponentially. I also decided that Tally needed to be edgier—an enigma of sorts—and Linc needed to be kinder. It ended up being a role reversal to all the New Adult stories I’d been reading lately. And I liked that uniqueness that This Much Is True takes on.
I began this project by asking myself the difficult questions: What if she was this incredible dancer—a ballerina—and yet she had this bad girl side to her? What if she hooked up with a baseball player who was older than she was and then she lied about who she really was? What if he instantly got her? How would she react to him? And, add to that: What if fate intervened and the innocent lies told in a single night of fun turned seriously destructive and changed everything for both of them? This is where This Much Is True started from with these essential, thought-provoking questions that changed everything for the story line and this writer.

About the author:

Dark. Edgy. Contemporary. Romantic.

Were we describing me? Or my fiction? Sorry. I drink too, not enough water.

I swear too much for God and my mother, and I slip these into my fiction. Sorry.

I'm impatient, a perfectionist, a wordsmith, a dreamer, which ends up being good and bad. I'm always writing, just ask my family.

I've written four novels in as many years: Seeing Julia, Not To Us, When I See You, and my latest release This Much Is True.

If you love angsty, unpredictable love stories, I'm yours. ♥

I'd love to hear from you here or connect with me on Facebook.
