Lola’s not pretty. Lola’s not popular. Lola wishes she could disappear … and then one day she does just that…
For seventeen-year-old Lola Savullo, life is a struggle. Born to funky parents who are more in than she could ever be, Lola’s dream of becoming a writer makes her an outsider even in her own home. Bullied and despised, Lola still has the support of her best pal Charlie and Grandma Rose.
Not only is she freakishly tall, Lola’s a big girl and when forced to wear a bathing suit at her summer job as a camp counselor, Lola’s only escape from deep embarrassment seems to be to literally vanish. Soon after, she discovers the roots of her new “ability”.
Slowly, with Charlie’s help, Lola learns to control the new super power. The possibilities are endless. Yet power can be abused, too…
Then, when tragedy strikes, Lola must summon her inner strength, both at home and at school. She has to stand up for herself, despite the temptations and possibilities of her newfound super power.
A coming-of-age story that will warm the heart.

What can we expect from you this year?
At the moment, I’m finishing up my latest novel, a paranormal romance, titled Incarnate. I probably have a few more months of work to do on it.
What genre do you like to write? What genre is your favorite to read?
The funny thing is that my favorite genre to read is historical literary fiction, but I write commercial fiction and YA. I don’t think I could ever write a literary historical novel. It takes too much time and research.
Where do you get your ideas?
They just come to me. Sometimes I have to turn off my brain and say to myself ‘I’ll think about that later’. Usually though I’ll start plotting a novel and realize it’s just not right and I’ll abandon it and go onto another. So, even though I have plenty of ideas, not all of them are gems.
What was the best thing ever said to you about your work?
The best thing is having people ask for more. I received a fan letter from a teenage girl, telling me how much she loved my book and asking when I was going to write another. Knowing readers appreciate my work and enjoyed my writing is the greatest feeling in the world.
Who is your favorite author? Favorite book?
I have many favorite authors. I love Stephen King, Helene Wecker, Betty Smith, Arthur Golden, Melanie Benjamin, Frank McCourt just to name a few. I could go on and on. My favorite book is Angela’s Ashes.
