Road to Publication
I wrote several full drafts of the stories that became The Uncrossing, including three early versions with half the same characters in a completely different situation. My break on the road to publication came when I submitted the manuscript to Entangled Teen, and my editor, Kate Brauning, offered me the chance to revise and resubmit. Her first round of notes were so insightful and helpful for that revision, I knew I wanted to work with her and with Entangled.

Luke can uncross almost any curse—they unravel themselves for him like no one else. So working for the Kovrovs, one of the families controlling all the magic in New York, is exciting and dangerous, especially when he encounters the first curse he can’t break. And it involves Jeremy, the beloved, sheltered prince of the Kovrov family—the one boy he absolutely shouldn’t be falling for.
Jeremy’s been in love with cocky, talented Luke since they were kids. But from their first kiss, something’s missing. Jeremy’s family keeps generations of deadly secrets, forcing him to choose between love and loyalty. As Luke fights to break the curse, a magical, citywide war starts crackling, and it’s tied to Jeremy.
This might be the one curse Luke can’t uncross. If true love’s kiss fails, what’s left for him and Jeremy?
