18 Hours To Us! It’s HERE!

She struggles w/storms of the past. He has the world in front of him & still feels lost.

No matter how many books I publish, the giddy feeling I get when one releases into the world never gets old. I’m excited for you to read Natalie and Colton’s sweet road trip romance, but this story is about more than just that. It’s about having the whole world in front of you and feeling lost. It’s about the storms we face in life, about letting go of the past, about forgiveness.

There are some tough topics in this story, and I have no idea who will read this book or who God intends to use it for, but I pray it will touch someone right where they’re at.

This story also has plenty of sweet, funny, romantic moments. These two characters have been so fun to hang out with since they first hit the page in June. I LOVE a good road trip and have actually taken the route they took to Virginia Beach in the book (minus one national park and a couple fictional stops).

I hope you enjoy 18 Hours To Us. The book will remain on a release week special of just 99¢ thru Cyber Monday.


Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday here in the US.
Happy reading!

cover reveal | 18 Hours to Us

The title and cover for this novel came pretty quickly to me after I started writing it in early June, and so many times this summer I was itching to share. This past weekend, my newsletter subscribers got the first look. So now I’m revealing it to the world. No release date set in stone for this one yet. I’m hoping by the time the leaves fall and the first snow hits the ground that it will be in your hands (or on your Kindles). ;)

If you’re on Goodreads, the book is listed there and you can hop on over and add it to your “to read” list.


When Natalie Rhodes left her house early that fateful morning to catch the bus to her senior class trip, she never expected to end up in a car with Colton Daynes–the guy she’s had a crush on since first grade, the guy who has no idea who she is. But when Colton’s irresponsible driving causes them both to miss the bus, the unlikely pair set off on a road trip from Michigan to Virginia Beach to catch up with their classmates.

From the tiny village of Middleville, the popular football star and the quiet gymnast will navigate back roads and highways, travel from lake towns to waterfalls to mountaintops and beyond, all the while fielding texts from Colton’s friends and mean girl, Lexi, who also happens to be Colton’s girlfriend.

Hours spent together on the road will lead them to places they’ve never been, discovering hidden talents, revealing secrets and fears. And they just might realize they have more in common than they know.
