In this modern-day Failure to Launch with a twist, a young newlywed gets more than she bargains for after the Interventionist she hires to launch her clingy dad out of her house falls for him—and worse—he falls for her as well. *To see my vision/aesthetic board, visit: https://www.pinterest.com/starlawrites/screenplay-learning-to-fly/

Neptune Rising is a YA speculative fiction/space opera and is being queried. With comp titles like Dirty Dancing and The 100, how can it not be intriguing? It’s like summer camp but in space. Only this year, the teens aren’t celebrating. They’re putting aside their differences, joining forces, and fighting against the hierarchy. *To see my vision/aesthetic board for this manuscript, visit: https://www.pinterest.com/starlawrites/neptune-rising/

*Undisclosed Title* Book 2 in the Pineridge Series is currently in draft two status. I’m so excited about this one! I’ve only given away bits and pieces about this book on my social media so far. When it’s closer to going to my lovely editor, and we have a title set in stone, I’ll disclose more. For now, all I will say, it’s going to be centered around Valentine’s Day with a Galentine’s Day theme and a “fake dating” trope and includes a fluffy, slobbery, puppy. All of your favorite characters from Eight Days of Christmas, (Book 1 in the Pineridge Series) will make a reprise role!
