Six Sentence Sunday

Hi everyone,

Well in anticipation of the fact that I got a release date for Driven, the second book in my Young Adult series The Warrior, I thought I would show six sentences this week from that book.

Thanks so much for coming here and every week. I love reading all of your entries too and I'm always overwhelmed by everyone's talent. Its so fun to see!

“It’s Glen.” Her face took on a dreamy quality when she said his name.


I nearly threw up in my mouth. “Glen?”


The same Glen who had made my life miserable with his snide remarks and difficult behavior every day I’d been in school with him? She had to be kidding.

    Ah, teenage love--the romance, the innocence, the puking in your mouth.
