So... last year Jolene Perry and I wrote a book.

I LOVE this book. It's one of my favorite books I've ever written.

Jolene did GREAT with Penny. She's such a strong girl. Love that about her. She doesn't let people take advantage of her and she doesn't let anyone tell her she can't do anything. Plus, she's funny, and she doesn't take Bishop's crap.

Bishop... sigh. I loved writing him. He's very flawed and had a long way to go, but he is special and will always have a place in my heart. And he's funny too. Maybe has a little...okay a huge attitude problem, but he's real and raw and a beautiful work in progress.

I can't wait for August when you guys get to read this book. And because Jolene and I are so stoked about OUT OF PLAY, we made pretty little graphics to share with you.

And Penny...

Rock star drummer Bishop Riley doesn't have a problem. Celebrities—especially ones suffering from anxiety—deserve to party, right? Wrong. After taking a few too many pills, Bishop wakes up in the hospital facing an intervention. If he wants to stay in the band, he’ll have to detox while under house arrest in Seldon, Alaska.

Hockey player Penny Jones can't imagine a life outside of Seldon. Though she has tons of scholarship offers, the last thing she wants is to leave. Who'll take care of her absent-minded gramps? Not her mother, who can’t even be bothered with the new tenants next door.

Penny’s too hung up on another guy to deal with Bishop’s crappy attitude, and Bishop’s too busy sneaking pills to care. Until he starts hanging out with Gramps. If Bishop wants a chance with the fiery girl next door, he’ll have to admit he has a problem and kick it. Too bad addiction is hard to kick…and Bishop’s about to run out of time.

  1. Thanks for sharing and can't wait for August.

  2. Sounds like a good one! I've been with a drummer for 16 years, and despite the band jokes, they're hot.
