June First is LIVE! 

Want to know what happens to a man who barely claws his way out of a tragedy, only to fall right into the arms of the one girl in the world he can never have?

Another tragedy, that's what.

When I was six years old, my father made a choice that altered the course of my entire life.
Because of what he did, the only girl I ever loved became the only girl I couldn’t have.

In a lot of ways, I did have her…
I had her first steps, her first words, her first smile. I had her milestones, her heartbreaks, her dreams. I had her heart so woven in with mine, I didn’t know where she ended, and I began.

Only, as the years pressed on, lines became blurred—and the blurrier the line, the easier it is to cross.

They say tragedy comes in threes.
For me, that was true.
The first one changed me, the second one broke me, and the third one healed me.

But at the center of all that tragedy… there is a love story.
And at the center of that love story,
There is June.

A decade-long dream...

I started writing Aria ten years ago. I daydreamed about this love story often, but never thought I'd ever finish it. When that day came, I cried. Then I never believed I would ever know the feeling of holding my book in my hands. When that day came, I cried some more and chugged a bottle of wine in my kitchen. Then, SURELY, I would never sell any copies. Well... I sold hundreds and hundreds of copies in the first two months strictly from word of mouth and rave reviews.

Needless to say, I'm still crying.

And chugging wine.

Never give up on yourself. That goal that looks impossible? It's not. It's just waiting for you to make your move.
