My first novel, THE RICHEST SEASON, was originally self-published. But through the enthusiasm and support of many independent booksellers, THE RICHEST SEASON was sold at auction to Hyperion and debuted this past June in hardcover. THE RICHEST SEASON takes place at one of my favorite places, Pawleys Island, SC and has been a regional bestseller in NC and SC, as well as in the northeast. You can read more about my incredible journey with this novel at And whereever I go, I try to meet, and sign stock at the independents. You are the heart and soul of bookselling! I am always available for bookclubs and love to come south, so e-mail me at
