I'm thrilled to be able to share the news with you that my twentieth novel, Every Breath, is set to be released this fall on October 16! In the tradition of The Notebook and Nights in Rodanthe, my newest love story is about two characters who meet in a chance encounter one fateful weekend in Sunset Beach, North Carolina: Hope Anderson, born and raised in North Carolina, and Tru Walls – a safari guide born and raised in Zimbabwe – and the decades, continents, and bittersweet workings of fate that follow. I can’t wait for you to meet them.

In the coming months, I’ll be sending my mailing list subscribers an exclusive excerpt of Every Breath, sharing photos and stories from my recent African safari trips that inspired the character of Tru and offering up advance notice on a number of fun reader giveaways. Until then, I invite you to connect with me on Facebook, Twitter and Instragram. While the book won’t be in stores for a few more months, you can pre-order your copy now!

Sincerely yours,


In stores this fall, Every Breath explores the many facets of love that lay claim to our deepest loyalties—and asks the question, How long can a dream survive? Every Breath will be available in stores on October 16 and is now available for pre-order online at: AmazonB&NBAMiBooksIndiebound and Walmart.
