Dear Reader,

Years ago one of my college students told me her twin had been murdered when she was in high school.

Her horrific story stuck with me. Out of it grew the character of seventeen-year-old Clara. When her twin Moura gets murdered, rumors swirl that Clara killed her. Moura had been a superstar, a piano prodigy who sucked up all the attention and barely spoke to Clara.

Then Clara starts getting threatening emails sent to the inbox of the high school advice column she ghostwrites. Convinced that her cyberstalker thinks she killed Moura and is out for revenge, she bravely undertakes her own investigation. But time may be running out.

Clara's scared, but she's also funny, caring, and feisty. Even as her own life is threatened, she falls in love and tries to help another teen involved in an abusive dating relationship. I hope you'll enjoy her story!

Please email me at to enter to win a signed copy of IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN YOU. I'd love to hear from you!
