Hey everyone,

It’s been a long, long time… I am so sorry about not getting in touch and giving you some update. A  lot of things have happened in my life and the most important one isn’t writing-related.

On June 10th, I had a baby girl. Her name is Margot Kitty, but we call her Kitty or Kit. For those who love Somerset Maughan’s The Painted Veil, it might ring a bell… She is is beautiful and absolutely lovely and I love her already very much. Here is one of her first pics.

I am also very proud to say that Oxford Whispers has won an IRDA in the romance category. IRDA stands for IndieReader Discovery Award! I am very, very flattered because IndieReader is truly an amazing place for self-published authors. So for everyone who took the time to read the book and vote for it, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! And here is the sticker to prove it 😉

Soon I’ll start teasing you about the release of No Reverse. No Reverse is a New Adult contemporary romance. I am very excited to share this story with you. Cassie and Josh are quite a couple and I hope you’ll fall in love with them too.

In the meantime, lots of love.
