What inspired you to write Some Women?
I wrote it from my own experiences and the experiences of my friends. As I’ve passed through various stages in my life, my books have evolved along with me. Now that I’ve been married for eleven years and have two kids, the issues inherent in this phase are what’s on my mind. This is my fifth book, so I really wanted it to strike a chord. I examine the intricacies of marriage, friendship, and the power of unexpected connections. My goal was to compose a story that would be both engrossing and thought provoking, while relatable at the same time.
Let’s talk about the three main characters, starting with Annabel Ford. She is a doting mom to twin boys and maintains an envious lifestyle. What triggers the sudden upheaval in her life?
Her husband announces that she's a miserable person and he's leaving her. It's abrupt and unexpected from her perspective. She doesn't understand why he doesn't appreciate all that she does for their family. And he doesn't understand why she doesn't realize how controlling and overbearing she can be. The worst thing for Annabel is that she felt blindsided, so she ends up drawing conclusions that may or may not be true!
As a crime reporter and single mom to daughter Fern, Piper Whitley is able to keep everything in check until two men enter her life. What’s happening in her world?
Piper is a single mom and that’s because Fern’s father Max walked out on her ten years prior after finding out she was pregnant. Now, Piper is finally happy with her boyfriend Todd and—let’s just say—Max might have a hand in stirring things up.
Mackenzie Mead is the envy of all her friends being married to the heir of a thriving media conglomerate. Yet, something is missing in her marriage. What gives?
Unfortunately, I think what it comes down to is that sometimes we marry the wrong person. Whether it’s because—as in Mackenzie’s case—she was swept up in a fairytale. Or because there was the pressure of age or family. It happens. This is why divorce statistics are so high! The question for Mackenzie is whether or not she should stay in the marriage and try to make it work or move on before kids are involved. You’ll have to read the book to find out which path she takes!

Spiked Apple Cider Pops
September in the South is, in my opinion, still summer. The eighties and nineties always prevail and make the traditional fall flavors that I crave so much slightly out of reach. As much as I want to relax and sip on some hot cider, at the moment, I still need something iced. ...read more

The Some Women Collection
. Please share with us all the details.
I’m so excited about The SOME WOMEN Collection! Annabel, Piper, and Mackenzie are the inspiration for this gorgeous and exclusive set of lip glosses created by Gerard Cosmetics—a line designed for women by women who empower each other. Mackenzie wears Wild Orchid because she’s daring and driven, with a bit of an edge. Piper prefers Salmon because she’s understated, delicate, and independent. And Annabel delights in Candy Apple because she’s confident, classic, and composed. The best part is that Gerard Cosmetics will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sales to The Domestic Violence Center of Santa Clarita Valley.
