Our last showing is:


When Mabel's best friend, Amber, drags her along on a double date she finds herself falling for Lance, the obnoxious class clown whom she swore she'd have no interest in. The only problem is, she's not sure if she's really the girl Lance is into, or if, like every other guy she knows, it's really Amber he's after. One thing is clear, if Mabel wants to be the lead in her own love story, she needs to start acting like it.


Hi Rachel and thanks for stopping by!

1. .     If you could cast your main characters, who would you choose to play them?
This isn't something I used to think about, but now that I'm on Pinterest I know exactly who I would pick! Colton Hayes would play Lance, love his big smile! And Alice Greczyn would play Mabel. She's so cute and even has the freckles!

2.      What would your movie tagline be?
The tagline on the book is "The happiest ending is the one you write yourself." I quite like that. :) I doubt I could come up with something better, but if you want something different. . .How about "Now's the time to steal the spotlight."

3.     What was the inspiration for your book?

I heard a song from a musical called Secondary Characters. It was basically about two people who took over the stage while the stars were backstage having a smoke. I loved the idea of giving secondary characters their time in the spotlight, and it made me wonder what it would be like to feel like a secondary character in your own life.

4.     What scene from your book would you most love to see played out on-screen?

There's a scene where they go on a double date, a date Mabel wanted nothing to do with but her best friend dragged her along. It's kind of awkward, but funny. Mabel has a great moment where she gets a chance to one-up Lance and leave him tongue-tied.

5.     What is your favorite movie?

My favorite movie ever is The Princess Bride. Loved the book, too. It's filled with such wonderful characters. It has action, humor, true love. What more could you ask for? 

6.     Have you ever been to a drive-in?

I haven't, but I'd love to! Unfortunately, we don't have any in our area.

Writer In Motion CP feedback

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have

Insecure Writers Group

Today, my feelings are mixed. On one hand, I've faced more rejection and that's not easy to write about or admit to the world. But I am not crying in my "milk" (no beer, folks:) I want to, but what good would it do??? I received a detailed critique from a "Best First Line" contest. The critique was the best I have ever received and seriously opened my eyes to "how" to improve my writing. Nice! Speaking of critiques, I am still looking for a critique partner. If anyone is looking back, please let me know and we can swap info. I'm sending off a YA query letter and first pages to 3 agents this week. Wish me luck. This will be the first time I have directly contacted and agent with a query. Yes, I'm nervous, so I'm saying again, WISH ME LUCK!!!

Operation Agent Ink

UPDATE: PLEASE FILL OUT THIS QUESTIONNAIRE AFTER YOU SIGN UP. Have you ever wondered what agents were dying to find in their inbox/slush pile? There have been many times I entered a contest and not even received a comment, not even from one of the agents. Or maybe the agent was kind enough to leave a comment that simply said, "Sorry, this just isn't what I'm looking for, but I love the premise and your voice." I always walk away feeling unsatisfied. If I had known exactly what the agent wanted beyond, "YA" or "Fantasy" I might not have even entered a contest I knew I wouldn't win! Even more, I wasted a very busy agents time! Well, your time of guessing is up! OPERATION AGENT INK to the rescue! That's right! This workshop will help aspiring authors get on the list of an agent's WISH LIST! When the workshop is over, your manuscript will be ready to view by a group of AMAZING agents who are dying to see what you've wri
