After graduating from MIT with a computer science degree, hacker Emerson True bides her time until she lands the perfect job. To pay the bills, she investigates cheating boyfriends and relationship secrets.
Her newest client, musician Levi Morrison, is a typical heartbreaker – gorgeous and charming. He’s also the biggest sucker in the world. When red flags pop up, he hires Em to check into the identity of the girl he’s fallen for online.
As Em and Levi work together to find his dream girl, they discover they have more in common than they thought. Though Emerson tries to build a firewall around her heart, Levi bypasses it easily. In the end, Levi must choose between his dream girl and the nerd who unwittingly hacked her way into his heart.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Boy Meets Nerd is the new adult I just published. I was inspired by the show on MTV called Catfish. Catfishing is when you pretend to be someone you’re not online to get a date or start a romance. I thought the concept was interesting for a book. My hero, Levi, is being catfished by who he thinks is his dream girl online. He hires Emerson, a cute hacker chick, to investigate. The two make the most unlikely pair as they journey together to uncover this girl’s hidden identity.
Who are your favorite authors?
For my paranormal series, definitely Kresley Cole. A Hunger Like No Other was the first romance novel I ever read. I loved her blend of humor, sexiness, and depth. It inspired me to write my own series and find that perfect balance.
