Published in 2013, Exception was my debut novel and writing it was, undoubtedly, one of the best experiences of my life.
Feel free to look around and get to know Taylor, Emily, and the whole gang.  


When all hope for moving on from a life filled with pain was gone, Emily Watson closed herself off to the world, packed her bags, and moved across the country in search of a new life. What she found was a career she adored and friends whom she loved. It wasn’t a full and complete life, but it was definitely better than what she knew before. 

When all hope for being loved and accepted for who he was instead of what he had was gone, Taylor Carter decided that trusting people outside of his family wasn’t really smart and would only lead to disappointment. With his world turned upside down, his life became about his work, and every new relationship was meaningless and superficial. He was safe, and definitely content, but never truly happy. 

When all hope for staying awake during a long day was gone, Emily and Taylor found themselves at the same coffee cart. Little did they know then that the worst coffee they’d ever drank would forever change their lives. 

When hopeless people are blinded by an endless pain. When contentment and safety fells like the best option, and love seems impossible, they may just find an EXCEPTION. ​
