of the Apple
took four years to write, and I have already invested in professional editing
and a beautiful cover by Kevin Keele. The
advance response to the manuscript has been wonderful, but none of that helps
unless I can get it printed and out in front of people. So, I am coming to the Kickstarter community
in hopes that I will be able to bring my project to a larger audience.
As I was studying Japanese
culture, Ryoki Tanaka began to mature in my mind, handsome, arrogant, and a
Master of the Sandwich, eating his own heart in the viscid darkness of his
life. Then Kate began knocking on my
skull, tripping in her heels and speaking a little elvish, and I knew right
away she’d booby trap his chair.
Together they travel from San Francisco to São Paulo, Brazil where they
gradually come to understand the true cost of paradise.
In Kirkus Magazine Lisa Monroe
called Secrets of the Apple “a
captivating love story,” but it’s also a journey of discovery that I’m hoping
will stick with readers long after they turn the final page.
you for your support!
Born in Rexburg, Idaho, I have
also lived in various parts of the United States, as well as Brazil and I am
currently living in China. I hold a
master’s degree in English from Brigham Young University, and when I’m not
writing, I am reading, traveling, or attending board game conventions with my
husband and three children. Secrets of the Apple is my first novel.

We also are offering 5 signed and dated copies of the manuscript, which can be extremely valuable to collectors!
