For this book’s launch, there have been several very cool opportunities that have happened for The Secret Next Door. One of which was when Apple Books selected The Secret Next Door as one of their Best Books for November! When my publicist emailed me the news I practically fell on the floor. I’m so grateful for this amazing opportunity. Thank you Apple Books for noticing and recognizing my latest title. Here is the link to the full list and you can find the Apple Books Review of The Secret Next Door below (they compare it to Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty!!)

The Secret Next Door:
Appearances can be deceiving in Rebecca Taylor’s eerie domestic thriller. Alyson is elated when she and her family first move into an exclusive Denver suburb, but the perfect façade quickly unravels. As the town rumbles over the development of a nearby golf facility and a 13-year-old boy turns up tragically (and suspiciously) dead, skeletons start tumbling out of the elite subdivision’s walk-in closets. We love how relatable and down-to-earth Alyson is as she fumbles her way through the infighting and panic that envelop the town. Taylor draws us into her heroine’s burgeoning friendships (and rivalries) with her new neighbors, especially with wannabe state senator Bonnie and friendly gossip Gabby. If you loved the engrossing, suspenseful feel of Big Little Lies, this showstopping suburban mystery’s for you.
A delightful bookish mystery, Department of Rare Books and Special Collections is the reading equivalent of a warm cup of tea in front of a fire on a winter’s day. Eva Jurczyk has crafted a love letter to libraries and those who make the shepherding and protection of books their life’s work. Her settings are sure to enchant any reader who relishes getting lost in the stacks of their favorite library.
I hope you’ll join me next Tuesday evening, 11/9/21 at 7:00 PM Mountain Time for the launch of my new book, The Secret Next Door. The event is hosted by Bookbar here in Denver and will be moderated by author Carter Wilson.
This past weekend was the Women’s Fiction Writers Association annual retreat in Albuquerque New Mexico. Every year they announce the winners of their STAR Award for published fiction and the Rising Star Award for unpublished manuscripts.
I’m thrilled to announce that Her Perfect Life won the STAR Award in the General category!
The Women’s Fiction Writers Association is a wonderful organization for writers (not just women!) who are actively working on manuscripts that fall within the “women’s fiction” domain. They regularly offer fantastic workshops that provide education on a wide array of craft and publishing topics.
Not to mention, they have some of the most knowledgable, charitable, and kind members I have ever met!
Thank you WFWA for this tremendous honor. And I’d like to send a special thank you to all the judges and event organizers that help make opportunities like this available to authors.
