An Interview with the Author:
Did any of your characters inherit some of your own quirks?
Tiffany, Faith’s best friend, has zero dance skills – just like me!

Do you read? Who are your favourite authors and how have they influenced your writing style?
I LOVE to read!  There are so many . . . but a few young adult authors who I enjoy are: Sarah Dessen, Rainbow Rowell, John Green, and Elizabeth Scott.  

What is the best piece of advice you have received, as a writer, till date?
To keep reading, and to keep writing.  

What is the best piece of advice you would give to someone that wants to get into writing?
What I’ve been told . . . to keep reading, and to keep writing.  I’d add: Just do your thing!  There’s no way to please everyone.  

How do you spend your free time? Do you have a favorite place to go and unwind?
If I’m not reading, then I might be spending time with my family.  I absolutely ADORE my little nieces and nephews, so you might find me playing with them.  

Can you share with us something off your bucket list?
Hmm . . . I’d really like to travel some more.  One day!

Tell us three fun facts about yourself.
I’ve been called fun size too many times to count LOL.  I like doing fun things with my food; chili sauce is the bomb.  I’m an amateur photographer.  

What do you have in store next for your readers?
There’s an idea that’s been rattling in my head for a while.  Let’s see what happens!

About the Book:

Faith Lane is the girl who has everything. At least, that’s what everyone thinks when they see her rocking a killer dress while laughing with her best friend, Tiffany. But Faith’s life is far from flawless. Her peers torment her relentlessly, and her parents expect her to be the epitome of perfection. Criticized and pressured at school and home, Faith retreats into silent acceptance and finds an escape in her passion of dancing. Then she meets Alex – quirky, forever with a pass, and concealing a mysterious secret of his own. And through his encouragement, Faith starts believing in her gift for dance and gains courage to stand up for herself. But will she be able to keep her footing when the events of one night consume her with the need to jump off the rocky cliffs near her coastal home? And what has pushed her to the edge of reason?
