I absolutely love your books. I'm a new "wannabe" writer and you are a true inspiration to me. Thanks for keeping me up till 4 am turning pages. Also, When is "The One" coming out?!? I can't wait, really, I seriously can't wait! Write faster please :)...


Diving into the mind of Aspen and his thoughts of the selection, the royal family, and America. Another side of the story beautifully told.

Cannot wait until May!
