Teen Carpool series book 2 now on Kindle Vella! Book drops in August!


A sweet teen romantic comedy about being your best self, being a best friend and finding the best boyfriend for you. Available now on Kindle Vella as an episodic story. Paperback & ebook drop in August. Audiobook in September. Meet Beatrix Plumb. 16. Smart. Budding idealist, full-fledged romantic, chronic self-doubter and divinely equipped to have a regular junior year. But Bee’s on the outs, wavering between invisible and miserable because her best friend Kate (16, budding Jungian analyst) now has a serious boyfriend and Bee realizes she has nothing. Hopeful dreamer that she is, Bee takes control of her life with a personal Junior Year Manifesto: 1) Be awesome enough to like herself and her life; and 2) Get Owen to notice her. Owen's the high school quarterback she's been in love with since kindergarten.  


But when Bee tries to give Owen a carpool ride and inadvertently causes an accident landing him in a full body cast, unable to speak, she pretends to be his girlfriend to save his rep (he’s secretly dating the cross-town rival head cheerleader, Jade) and help the team get to the State Championship. Things get complicated when real girlfriend Jade gets jealous and Bee falls for Owen's best friend Nick, team punter, son of the football coach, amazing song writer who totally supports Bee’s quirky passion for Appalachian flatfoot hip hop and poetry. Together Bee and Nick make awesome music and have fun, but Nick thinks Bee's Owen's girl. Finally, the jig is up when Owen comes to and Bee has to find the courage to undo this mess without letting Nick and herself down.

"Honest, earnest and (im)perfectly loveable!"

-- Alessia Costantini, writer/co-executive producer 

   MACGYVER, CBS, Netflix

Meet Saoirse Berger, newly eighteen, hopeful-romantic overachiever, waiting impatiently for life to begin. She has an internship with her famous film director uncle, a hit BookTube channel with her actress cousin Sadie and is fully determined to get her world on track as a true adult, complete with happiness and sparkly love in spades. But nothing’s going to plan. She applied to all the wrong colleges, is the only one of her friends still single and is majorly crushing on 23-year-old cinema genius Leo Landis, even though he may or may not be breaking up with his girlfriend and may or may not even notice her.


But Saoirse's not giving up. She steels herself with hyper-romantic hope and sets out to be her best positive self, which works fabulously until it doesn't and things get complicated. Luckily, life turns in Saoirse's favor as her Hollywood family spins out of control and a sweet, equally quirky street artist, Hector Rojas, spots her magical sparkle and inspires her to see things from a kaleidoscope of angles, even her own beautiful self.
