There are probably numerous ways to do so but because I am English speaking and grew up in an English household, I prefer this pronunciation. “van” as in the van you drive, and “Whye” as in ‘the question- why did you do this?’. Think of the “e” as silent.
I think I look older than I actually am. I was born in 1993.
I’m represented by Robert Guinsler of Sterling Lord Literistic, Inc.
My fabulous agent and I connected via #DVPIT, an amazing program created by the wonderful Beth Phelan. Robert liked my pitch during the 2018 DVPIT and the rest as they say is history. For more information on #DVPIT please visit: www.dvpit.com I was previously agented before, I cold queried then. I suggest using the Querytracker website, as it was an invaluable tool to me when I was querying.
As of right now the answer is no. Maybe in the future this will change but for now this is stand alone. My next book will feature an entirely different cast and setting.
Yes, it is.
The main source of inspiration for Date Me, Bryson Keller was my own lived experience. The Manga “Seven Days” also served as a jumping off point but only as far as inspiration goes. I explain more HERE. I was also inspired by the Rom-Com “She’s All That” and really wanted to have a romance centered around a game of sorts - and the idea of it being a dare intrigued me. With this book I wanted to put spin on one of my favourite tropes - fake-dating. All of this blended together to make Date Me, Bryson Keller what it is - a coming out narrative with a Rom-Com sensibility.”
The fabulous foreign rights team at Sterling Lord are working on it. I will update the “NEWS” page when I can officially announce anything, so keep up to date there.
I would love if it did, as it would be a dream come true. Fingers crossed that this happens.
The answer is generally no. But I do sometimes mentor in an amazing mentorship program called Author Mentor Match. And if I’m sitting out a round, then there are numerous other wonderful authors who are willing to help. For more information please visit: Author Mentor Match
I am a pantser through and through. Even when I write outlines, I never stick to them. So I have given up, and just write where the story takes me.

What If It's Us meets To All the Boys I've Loved Before in this upbeat and heartfelt boy-meets-boy romance that feels like a modern twist on a '90s rom-com!
Everyone knows about the dare:Each week, Bryson Keller must date someone new--the first person to ask him out on Monday morning. Few think Bryson can do it. He may be the king of Fairvale Academy, but he's never really dated before. Until a boy asks him out, and everything changes.
