One of my favorite things about doing book events is discovering other author’s works. A few months ago I met the lovely @kimhooperwrites and devoured her second novel, Cherry Blossoms. I loved it so much, I ordered her first novel, People who Knew Me and read it in a single sitting. The subjects Kim tackles are serious, dealing with love and loss, but her characters are so dynamic and she brings such humor and heart to the stories that you simply can’t stop reading. Her third novel, Tiny is out this June and I can’t wait. Do yourself a favor and check out Kim’s novels! You won’t be disappointed. #bookstagram #sundayreads #kimhooper #mustrreads

Today would have been my Mom’s 80th birthday. I love these pictures because they capture her magic and how every day with her was an adventure (and can we talk about those wigs?) 😍Tonight we’ll celebrate by doing mom’s favorite things— Eating good food and telling stories. Happy Birthday lady bird! We miss you so much, but like you always said you’re #alwaysinmypocket.
Happy Monday y’all! When I began writing scripts years ago, I devoured everything I could get my hands on. I’ve been doing a bit of spring cleaning and I realized it’s time to rehome these wonderful books, which discuss both the craft and business side of screenwriting. Leave a comment below and tell me where you are in your screenwriting journey and I’ll pick a winner at the end of the week. *US residents only. #mondaymotivation #bookgiveaway #screenwritinggiveaway

I took a college political science class when I was sixteen. When the professor learned that I was still in high school, he asked what I wanted to do with my life. I mentioned that I’d considered going into politics. He didn’t offer encouragement or support. Instead this man laughed at me. “Are you rich? Are you connected?” The answer, of course was no. From that day forward, I hated that class and put the idea out of public service out of my mind. But over the years, I watched as this man was proven right. The leaders we elected were rich and connected and nothing was going to change that. Luckily @coribush @ocasio2018 @amy4thepeople and @paulajeanswearengin, the four incredible women portrayed in Knock Down the House @netflix new documentary, are proof that change is coming. An entire generation of young girls and women, from the waitresses and bartenders to the self-made executives, to the mothers and wives, will see that they don’t have to sit on the sidelines anymore. They have a voice. These four women give me hope that in a classroom somewhere, a young girl is ignoring the naysayers, planning and preparing, ready for her chance to be heard and to change the world. #knockdownthehouse
Happy #indiebookstoreday! I used to live around the corner from @booksoup so it was a dream come true when they agreed to host The Walls book launch back in 2017. If you’re in LA, this is the perfect place to spend a gloomy Saturday. And if you’re not, pay a visit to your local indie book shop & show love for these tireless champions of authors and their books. #booklovers #bookstagram #thewallsbook #booksoup
Spent a lovely Easter Sunday with a few of my favorite people. Missing mom who always made holidays so special, but she’s #alwaysinmypocket.
