What could be worse than starting off the summer finding out your boyfriend wants to break up with you...and he's already seeing another girl? Jennette is about to discover hers isn't the only life that needs mending. A little nor'easter blows her into the life of a new friend. Together they uncover a long hidden secret, which must be resolved in order to unite the clamdiggers and the mainlanders in an effort to save the rural beauty of the peninsula from certain destruction by developers.

First, a little background about me: For most of my life I have lived within three blocks of the Atlantic Ocean in the United States. I've traveled as far north as Magog, Canada, and as far south as Venezuela, South America. For over nine years I taught second grade before pursuing a career in writing. I live with my husband and two sons in a recently renovated 1920 Craftsman-style house, where in the walls we found old shoes (for luck, we're told), driftwood, and parts of shipping crates from the beach.

Some of my articles and short stories have appeared in
The Family Digest, The Front Porch syndicate, the Liguorian, True Romance, Absolute Write, Stories for Children, and two anthologies, Letters to My Mother (Adams Media) and Haunted Encounters (Atriad Press). My first novel is Lost And Found Love, published in 2003 by Koenisha Publications.
