Read full description of the books:
The invitation for her ten-year high school reunion sits in her inbox, but Corie cringes at the idea of actually going. She thinks back to the tragedy that took place back then, the friendship lost, the lives shattered.
Her former best friend, Scarlet, now an attorney in San Francisco, also dreads the reunion. Still, she considers attending, considers facing Corie and all the memories she’s tried to block. But will she have the strength to go through with it—accompanied by the man she refuses to let get too close?
Guest List, a prequel to the novel Letters for Scarlet, begins the story of two women and a friendship torn by lies and betrayal.
What was your inspiration to write Letters for Scarlet?
When I was teaching high school English, my seniors wrote letters to themselves, which I saved and sent to them five years after graduation. I imagined the impact of a tragedy happening in that time span and increased the period to ten years so the characters could be older and more established in their lives.
There are lots of great women's fiction books to choose from these days! What makes Letters for Scarlet fresh?
I switch between two narrators, one in first-person-present and the other in third-person-past, to show their lives from different points of view—both their strengths and flaws. Personally, I don't like characters who are all hero or all villain.
The story focuses on friendship, or rather, a loss of friendship between two former high school friends. What can you say about their relationship?
As teenagers, Scarlet and Corie were incredibly close and thought they would be best friends forever, but with that closeness came underlying jealousy and competition that carried into their adult lives. Tragedy exacerbated these messy emotions and left holes they're both still trying to fill.
Do you have any more books planned?
Yes! Although there is a sense of closure at the end of Letters for Scarlet, I left the door open to explore the characters' futures, together or separately.
What do you enjoy reading?
Primarily, I love women's fiction, literary fiction, and memoir. But any time spent reading is a good time!
