I'm so excited to share the news that my next book, MEG AND JO -- contemporary women's fiction based on the characters from Little Women -- will be published by Berkley next spring. The sequel, BETH AND AMY, will follow.

Growing up, I loved
Little Women because I wanted to be Jo. But with every re-reading, I take away something new from the story of the March sisters.

At its heart, the story celebrates the importance of family, the diversity of women's dreams, the strength of sisterhood...and the power of love.

These stories are timeless, but I've given them a very modern attitude, setting them in a familiar location - North Carolina - with thoroughly contemporary characters: young mother Meg; food blogger Jo; shy musician Beth; and ambitious Amy.

I'll be sharing covers - and excerpts! - with you as soon as I can. I hope you'll love these stories as much as I do.

Dear Friends and Readers,
