When my first-grade teacher asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I replied, “An author.” Although I have pursued other interests over the years, this dream has never wavered.
I graduated from Harvard University, magna cum laude, with an A.B. in English Literature and Language. I received my J.D. at Yale Law School, where I was an editor of the YALE LAW JOURNAL.
I am a New York Times bestselling author of YA fiction. My first novel, FORGET TOMORROW, won the RWA RITA® award for Best First Book. My other books include THE DARKEST LIE, REMEMBER YESTERDAY, and the novella BEFORE TOMORROW. I am represented by literary agent Beth Miller of Writers House. I'm a member of Romance Writers of America, Washington Romance Writers, YARWA, and The Golden Network.
I live with my husband and children in Maryland.
