Woo hoo! It's done. My very first romantic comedy for adults is finished, and I just hit *publish*, and now you should go and buy it! (If you're an adult, that is. There is some mature content, so don't get this one if you're into my tween books. Seriously, you would not enjoy it.)

CHEATING ON MYSELF is a novel I've been working on for the last few years, and now it's finally available for YOU to buy and read and recommend to all your friends. I really hope women everywhere love this one. Please let me know what you think if you read it!

Here's the description:

Stella Dahl assumed her life was as good as it was ever going to get. But after twelve years with a man who's more a habit than husband material, she walks out on her bland existence, determined to start over. Goaded by her friends and a group of crass retirees she befriends at water aerobics, Stella plunges back into the dating pool. After a few false starts, she meets Joe, the sexy banjo player in a popular children's band. He's cocky, a smirking flirt, and a musician...everything she's not looking for in a guy. Even still, she begins to fall - hard.

Just when Stella is beginning to think she could find true happiness, a family tragedy turns her world upside down. As she tries to hold together everything that's crumbling around her, Stella starts slipping back into old habits - and away from Joe. Soon, she begins to wonder: Is she really destined for anything more than a life that's good enough?

For fans of Jennifer Weiner and Kristan Higgins, Cheating on Myself is a touching, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy about starting over and finding your happily ever after.
