One of my favorite things about ONE SUMMER NIGHT was the interaction between Owen and his younger brother Jonathan.

Jon’s story is in WHAT HAPPENS IN SUMMER which has turned out to be one of my favorite books ever! But back to Jonathan . . . He projects this “I don’t care” kind of persona and yet he cares deeply about so much. His brother for starters. By-the-book Connie who has never forgotten after their summer love affair. Emma, his female best friend of sorts. Dudley, his little rescue dog. The mother who went missing over twenty years earlier and still plays such an important part in Jon’s life. I loved doing Jonathan’s story and I hope you’ll check it out! WHAT HAPPENS IN SUMMER releases in June 2018, but is available for pre-order now at the following retailers:
