New Release is OUT

Finally! This has been a long time coming.

Remember You When has been released out into the wild blue yonder in print and e-book in 13 different countries!

Some context: I started writing this story 7 years ago when we were caring for my mother while she battled Alzheimer's disease--a battle, sadly, that no one wins.  Writing during one of the worst periods of my family's life, saved me from spiraling.

Fast forward a few years and a gazillion revisions, tears, and edits later, voilĂ .  I give you Charlotte and Cesar, two teens navigating the usual high school minefields while also coming to terms with a parent who has early-onset Alzheimer's.

I'm pretty proud and happy that Remember You When is out in world, especially as the number of people struggling with Alzheimer's grows, given our aging populations. I hope that people who read it will gain new perspective while also getting lost in the story. You can read a few sample chapters on Amazon and if so inclined, purchase the book or e-book.  Additionally, there's always good ole Goodreads where you can show some love. :)

I've already been contacted by book clubs, Alzheimer's association groups, and even high school teachers, which has both humbled and blown me away, especially since the promotion for this book has been completely different from my prior books.

But, so far, who's pleased? This girl!

Hope you will check out Remember You When.
