February is Teen Dating Abuse Awareness Month!
Coming February 1st: 28 Tips for 28 Days
As I wrote Die for You, I learned a lot about dating abuse. I had no idea that it was so common and so deadly. In honor of February’s push for awareness, each day of the month I’ll post a new bit of information about teen dating abuse. Stats that may shock you. Tips that can help you. Links that can save a life.
Knowledge and understanding are our best weapons in fighting what has become a silent epidemic among teens.

Die for You is now available online and in bookstores everywhere!

COOKIESAURUS IS BAKING!
Cookiesaurus Rex is the title of my first ever picture book and I wish I could show you early sketches because it’s just so stinking cute! (Soon, I hope!) Coming from Disney September 2017, Cookiesaurus Rex tells the story of a dinosaur cookie who demands to be the best and most delicious cookie ever, told from the cookie’s point of view. I’m so lucky to be partnering on this book with fellow writer, Nate Evans, and our illustrations are in the amazing hands of AG Ford. Can’t wait for you to meet Cookie!
NEXT YOUNG ADULT NOVEL IS IN THE WORKS:
It’s called The Fall of Grace and it’s being described as WILD for teens. It’s the story of Grace and Sam who climb a mountain looking for answers, and discover more than they expect. The book is planned for release in Spring, 2018. 🙂
More About HEART:
A Matter of Heart is a story that features a teen athlete with a deadly heart condition, Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. One of the most special things about this book for me is getting a chance to shine a light on a disease that kills unsuspecting teens. I’m very proud to support The Anthony Bates Foundation through the proceeds of this book. The Foundation brings heart tests to high schools across the country. Thank you so much for helping me to support them!
