#IGAuthorLifeJan – DAY 12 – TBT

#IGAuthorLifeJan – DAY 12 TBT In the Summer of 2013, before Undertow even came out, I had the honor of working with some very talented Cape Cod teens – all of who looked like the characters from Undertow. They were bold enough and brave enough to be the faces of a book that had yet to […]
