Born and raised in Texas, I don't act like much of a Texan. I like cold weather and hate country music. I have a gorgeous husband, two dogs, and a Literature degree from the University of Texas at Dallas. If I'm not at home reading a book or doing laundry, I'm probably at the bookstore, nannying three rambunctious boys, or stuck on the side of the road with car trouble. I'm a reader, a writer, and a bit of a crazy person.

Favorite Books

At the moment: Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen, Girl Underwater by Claire Kells, anything and everything by Maggie Stiefvater.

Favorite Quotes

"Don't think or judge. Just listen." -Owen Armstrong in Just Listen by Sarah Dessen

Swoon Author Vicky Skinner: HOW TO DROWN Has a Shiny New Title!

So, I know everyone says this, but believe me when I say, I am awful at titles. Seriously. Most of the time, the novels that I’m working on are titled Untitled or simply the names of the main character and their love interest. I have a serious lack of title creativity. But when it came to How to Drown ... Read More
