Top Ten Reasons Why I Write 

I write books because... 

10. When I write, I feel a piece of my soul clicking into place. 

9. I've wanted to be an author ever since I was six years old. 

8. Some of my closest friends are writers -- and if I didn't write, what would we talk about?! 

7. I kinda love the looks I get from strangers when I'm at a restaurant discussing with my friends the best way to kill a man. 

6. When I was a kid, I thought it would be awesome to be able to capture emotion in a bottle. Books have been the best vessel I've found for doing that: the same (or similar) emotions are created each time the words are read. 

5. I get to decide how the story ends. 

4. Just as true character is revealed in the decisions that people make, my true self is revealed in the stories that I write. 

3. I want my kids to be proud of me. 

2. The lives of my characters are so much cooler and more exciting than my own. But when the writing session ends, I get to retreat back to my regular life, which is thankfully bereft of epic tragedies or world-altering decisions (at least, usually 😀). 

1. I can't not write. It is as much a part of me as the color of my skin. I used to think that writing was a choice. A few years ago, I realized it's not. For better or worse (hopefully better!), this is who I am. A writer. 

FORGET TOMORROW SYNOPSIS: Imagine a world where your destiny has already been your future self.

It's Callie's seventeenth birthday and, like everyone else, she's eagerly awaiting her vision-a memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into the person they're meant to be. A world-class swimmer. A renowned scientist.

Or in Callie's case, a criminal.
In her vision, she sees herself murdering her gifted younger sister. Before she can process what it means, Callie is arrested and placed in Limbo-a hellish prison for those destined to break the law. With the help of her childhood crush, Logan, a boy she hasn't spoken to in five years, she escapes.
But on the run from her future, as well as the government, Callie sets in motion a chain of events that she hopes will change her fate. If not, she must figure out how to protect her sister from the biggest threat of all-Callie, herself.
