Sophia Destino is supposed to die. All seventeen-year-old Sophia wants is to coast through her junior year. But with her parents obsessed with her Olympic-swimming-hopeful brother, a psychic best friend with a penchant for reading tarot cards, and prophetic dreams that predict her death—that won’t be easy.
As her nightmares begin to come true, Sophia finds herself dodging death and longing for the time when getting over her ex-boyfriend was her biggest problem. Until she meets Leo Knight.
The mysterious stranger seems determined to keep her alive—and steal her heart. But Leo has a secret that is about to change everything and Sophia is about to learn that sometimes…your number is up.
1. Cotton or Silk?
Cotton. Silk seems so fancy!
Alcohol? Ew, no. I’m very against underage drinking and if you don’t know why just ask my ex-boyfriend, Aiden. I’m sure he’ll be more than happy to tell you about the HUGE mistake he made when he was drunk off cheap vodka. He might have ruined me for drinking at all in my life!
Well, it’s kind of a requirement in my family to be a fan of competitive swimming. My little brother, Graham is so close to making it to the Olympics. It is a fun sport to watch though because the races are always so close…unless Graham is swimming. Then he always wins.
My mom’s homemade mac-n-cheese. She’s out of town a lot for my brother’s swimming but when she is home she makes huge batches and freeze it for me.
I don’t think I’ve been enough places yet to have a preference but I do love the idea of living in a house in the woods like Leo does. His place is impossible to get to so if I had all the money in the world I’d make a road lead all the way from town to my secluded little place. And of course Leo would be there with me.
It’s really hard for me to say. I just started my junior year of high school so I should be thinking about college and my future but with everything going on I can’t really think beyond my day to day activities. Almost dying twice really outs thing into perspective and I want to start focusing on what makes me happy. Now that Leo’s in my life I feel like anything is possible and a whole new world is open to me.
Top ten things you don’t know about me:
1. Cotton or Silk?
Both. Cotton in the hotter months but silk in the cold ones.
Yes. Just kidding. If I had to pick one it would be champagne.
I am 100% a pantser and I can’t imagine writing any other way. Though I completely admire plotters and maybe one day I will be organized enough to be one.
It varies. I write all over the place, usually with my laptop but I’ve been known to use my phone in a pinch. I probably enjoy writing in my bed though. I have massive amounts of throw pillows on my bed so I prop them all up and even use one as a makeshift desk on my lap. I think I write best when I’m all cozy.
Sports fan. I love going to hockey, baseball, and football games. I might not know all the rules or understand completely what’s going on but I think sports are fun.
I’m always influenced just by my daily life. I like to incorporate every day experiences into every scene I write. Even though Always Kiss Me Goodnight is a paranormal story I think using little quirks and details I’ve taken from my friends and family help make it seem more real.
Enchiladas. All kinds. Really any Mexican food.
When I was younger I liked to tell stories. I loved making things up to entertain my family. It took me much longer to start writing those stories down. I didn’t seriously start putting words onto paper until I was an older teen.
Well, I’ve never been there, but I would love to travel to Norway. I can’t say for sure I’d like to live there but have you seen pictures of that place? It looks amazing and I think I could be very happy there.
There are two more books that follow Leo and Sophia so I’m working on editing them and hopefully getting them published. I’m also working on a new adult manuscript that I’m loving and I hope to be able to publish that one as well.

Teegan Hallowell might be a good girl, but she’s tired of being teased for following the rules…
When her brother’s sexy best friend Liam Bates shows an interest, Teegan learns all about the good kind of being bad. But Liam’s ex-girlfriend Lucy shows up and destroys everything, especially Teegan’s trust in him. Crushed, she heads off to college in a new city, leaving behind the only guy she’s ever loved.

She’s already formed a bond with the endearing boy, and realizes she’s also still in love with his father. Too bad she’s not good enough for either of them, being a shattered shell of a person, thanks to Oliver.
Liam, however, has his own agenda—getting Teegan back.
Now that the love of his life is back in town, he has no intention of losing her again, and he’s more than willing to leave all other women behind.
