It has been a wild week, but The Checklist is officially out in the world!
There are so many people to thank for helping me take this book from Google doc to a thing we can hold in our hands. I’m grateful to my family, friends, my agent, and the team at Montlake. I am also particularly grateful for the fantastic readers who have already read the book and reviewed it. I have LOVED hearing from all of you. Thank you!

Fresh Fiction Book Club – June 9, 5pm PT/7pm CT
Want to ask me about The Checklist? Great, because I’ll be dropping by the Fresh Fiction book club to chat. Come with your questions and your after-work beverage of choice, and get ready to have some fun. Click here to RSVP for this free event.
In case you missed it, PopSugar added The Checklist to two fantastic summer reading lists, including the Best New Books in June and 13 Romance Books That Will Heat Things Up This June. It is so fun to see my book on reading lists that I consult all the time! The Checklist was also selected as one of FictionDB’s June picks (along with one of my Great Aunt’s favorite mystery authors, Sujata Massey). I was also featured in a Publisher’s Weekly interview, chatting about rom-coms and writing!
The lovely team at Montlake put together a book trailer for The Checklist and it is so fun. Check it out!
Back in May, I was lucky enough to chat with Amelia Marckworth and Dan Savage about the business of being a writer as part of the Founders Live Seattle Series. If you missed it, you can catch the recording below.
This and That
And now, launch day photos! Luckily, I have friends and family who are fully vaccinated, so a handful of us gathered outside to celebrate my book’s release. I have to say, MY HOMIES GET ME. They rolled through with a theme (including a pink wig!) and executed the plan like the bosses they are. Thanks to them, I was able to celebrate like all good authors do…dressed to match my book cover with bubbly!
