It’s time to say goodbye to our Johnson Prep favorites before they all head off to college.

After the gossip-worthy events of graduation and the shocking death of one of their classmates, it seems The Queen of Queens wants to give Danielle, Bethany, Calvin, Tucker, and Aman one last hurrah.

Will everything have a happy ending, or will one of our favorites end up 6 feet under? How will the war end with the salacious arrival of returning students, Andrew and Jasmine? They all had one lesson left to learn: Just because high school is over, doesn’t mean the high school drama ends. They’re all about to take their curtain call, but will it end as a comedy or a tragedy?

Discover this sultry and thrilling end to the High School Queens Series.

Author Interview:

1.  What does your writing
process look like? Do you know the whole story when you start?  Or do you
just start writing and go with it (seat of the pants writing)?  If you
plan it out, how do you do that?  Outline, notecards, post-it-notes, etc.?  With
this being a series, did you know exactly how it would all go ahead of time?

I usually being with a beginning
then have the ending. I let the characters kind of take me on a journey. I
think that’s exciting about my novels, and I love how organic they feel when I
don’t even know sometimes where the novel takes me. I use a giant corkboard
with what I have goals for the characters and chapter by chapter what I would

2. Do you edit as you go,
or wait till you’re finished before you edit?  How many times would
you say you go over it yourself before having another set of eyes look it

usually wait till the end to edit it. I’ll go through it on my laptop. Then
I’ll print it out. Then my friend/editor Erika will go through it to make sure
I’m not missing it. Then I’ll go through it one last time before I send to my
publishers who then also go through it twice. So, I would say it’s about 5-6
times it gets edited.

3.  Are you part of a writers
group that gets together and helps each other with their writing?

honestly do everything solo. I think for me that I need to be solo. I’ll help
people if they have questions, but I don’t think writer’s groups are helpful. I
think everyone’s competitive, and they aren’t going to be fully helpful with
good intentions, I feel like.

4.  What tips do you have for
aspiring writers?

Have fun and be obsessed with what you’re writing. You
need to just be obsessed with what you’re doing because if you don’t then your
readers won’t either.


5.   What are your
