A. Sure, but I’ll keep it short and simple so I don’t reveal anything. Elana moves to Florida to go to college. She wants to get away from her father so she can start a new life because the past few years had been tough for her. She meets Jaxon who has dealt with things that are just as bad. Over time they learn of each other’s secrets and realize they are both amazingly broken…
Q. How did you come up with your title?
A. It just came to me suddenly because Jaxon and Elana are both broken but they’re also amazing. So I decided Amazingly Broken was perfect.
Q. How did you decide to become a writer and share your work with everyone?
A. I kept reading books and after a while I realized how many were by indie authors, A LOT. I said, “I can do that.” Now I’m trying prove it.
Q. If you could do anything other than be an author, what would it be?
A. Professional speaker for teenagers because life can always get better! I’ve been there.
Q. What was the hardest part about writing Amazingly Broken?
A. Reliving my past since Elana’s past is based off of mine.
Q. Is there something in particular you like listening to or eating/drinking when you write?
Q. If you could pick a soundtrack to match your main character’s life, what would it be?
A. Broken Bones by Rev Theory
Q. I saw you've actually done a bit of writing as a ghost writer. Were there any surprises writing under your own name for the first time? Did it make you nervous?
A. It made me really nervous because it’s my real name on the line now. Before, it’s up to the client to fix the story up. Now I had to do it myself.

"It's just rain toots, nothing to worry about," Jaxon said, walking behind me and cupping my shoulders.
I turned and smiled. "I know. We have it in Iowa too.”
“I know but you looked scared.”
“I’m not. By the way, thanks a lot for not bringing a bunch of drunk girls to the apartment the past few nights," I said.
Jaxon’s dead silence alerted me that there was another side to the story. My brown eyes turned suddenly fierce.
"Oh my god, are you kidding me?" I raged. "I should have known. I swear I should have known."
He looked at me as if to put me in my place. "Why does it matter? You do remember that you said we were just friends, don't you? You said to be quiet next time so I was," he said, crossing his arms. He sat and slouched in the wooden chair.
The statement made me pause. My face went stone cold. "Well, yes. But…"
There was always a "but" in my conversations. I had an uncanny way of changing my opinions at the flick of a switch.
"First, you want nothing to do with me. Then, you are angry that I was sleeping with other girls. Then, wasn't happy to not hear from me at all," he said. "You're f*cking messing with me."
I looked at Tiffany and Lance who were sitting in silence and exchanging worried looks.
"The only way you could be mad at me is if you liked me," Jaxon said. "Unless you…" A smile curved my lips. He pointed a finger toward me and grinned. "You do like me. You're just too chicken shit to tell me. I know your game."
"Hey, don't you ever liken me to poultry?" I said, feeling suddenly scared that the truth was out.
