Mixology was born on a trip to the Outer Banks. It was the off season, a few months before the coastal community came alive for the summer. I was struck by the sense of anticipation and had fun chatting with some of the waitresses, bartenders, and store owners about the quiet season. I couldn't help filling in the details of their stories-- and I just knew I'd have I write a book set against that backdrop.
SNS follows Maddy as she navigates the post college graduation waters when things don't go exactly as planned. This book isn't about a girl making big decisions, it's about one handling the fallout of her her dreams-- or at least the dreams she thought were hers. Along the way she meets Colin, a twenty-something who's not quite as lost but needs to learn about balance, and she finds her place living with two guys-- one her childhood best friend.
SNS has the same romantic yet comedic feel of Hazards, but it focuses on the early twenty-something experience rather than college. I had a ball writing it, and I hope you guys enjoy this trip to the Outer Banks!
