If you want to send me an e-mail, my address is It takes me several weeks (at best) to respond to emails, and sometimes months. Unfortunately, organization and email are not my strong suits, but I do love reading them.

If you’re interested in rights to any of my books, my agent is Kristin Nelson, of the Nelson Literary Agency.

You can meet me in person (and get books signed to you and your friends) by visiting one of the book signings that I will be attending. There’s a list of signings here. If you’d like me to sign books, please let me know and I’ll see if something can be arranged.

Alternately, if you want to sort of contact me, but, you know, not actually have to directly speak to me (which is okay), you can sign up for my newsletter.

You can also find me on various social media:

Finally, there are four other reasons why people contact me.

1. You want me to speak at a conference. I’m flattered, honored... and already booked through 2020. If you want to talk about booking something in 2021 or later please email my assistant Mel Jolly at

2. You want me to read your book for a blurb. I always want to read books for a blurb, but I am just not good at doing it. There is something about agreeing to read a book that makes me feel like it’s work, and that makes it hard for me to enjoy the book. Please feel free to ask, but again, I’m almost certainly going to say no. It’s really not personal. I say no to just about everyone.

3. You want me to be in some kind of joint authorial promotion group. Again, I’m honored and flattered that you’d think of me, but I do not join quid-pro-quo cross promotion groups. You can ask, but the answer to this is always going to be no.

4. You are offering a commercial service. Do not email me. Seriously. Do not. I am not nice about this. Yes, it is spam even if you personalize it, and yes, I do name and shame companies that repeatedly email me and do not comply with CAN-SPAM laws. I tell people not to use their services. That’s not what you want, is it?
