I’m here to talk about my contemporary romance, A Facebook Affair. And what I want to talk about is going to surprise you. You’re going to say, “What does that have to do with a romance novel?”
How many of you have gone through it? Been laughed at, called names, ridiculed just because you are different? Maybe you wear glasses, are a bit overweight (which is not hard to be by today’s Hollywood standards!), or maybe you are just shy…?
In A Facebook Affair, Kelly is hearing impaired and when she has a chance at love with a boy she knew long ago, she’s got to get over the fact that his twin sister was one of the girls that tortured her in school…and I’m sure you all remember the type. They thought they were perfect, wouldn’t play with you, maybe shoved you around. So how did you deal with it? And better yet, as an adult, have you talked to YOUR kids about it?
My intention with A Facebook Affair is to not only educate the world about what it’s like to be hearing impaired, but to also bring that question up in all of your minds.

When Kelly and Brandon rediscover each other on Facebook after twenty years apart, it sparks an attraction that even distance can’t extinguish. Do they truly have a future, or is this just a Facebook affair?
Kelly Littleton takes the plunge and finally joins Facebook to socialize without the limits that her hearing impairment gives her. On a whim, she looks up a childhood friend. In sending him that first message, she ignites the memories of a crush from twenty years ago. But will they turn into the flames of romance, or end up the ashes of a Facebook affair?
Brandon Hopkins has a lot on his plate. A recent divorce, a pregnant sister, and now, he realizes he’s in love with a woman who lives states away. Can he overcome the boundaries of internet romance to make this desire turn into something real, or will adversity and distance be their undoing?
