It's finally here--RELEASE DAY for When We Were Us, Keeping Score Series Book 1. Join us at the Birthday and Release Bash right here.
The Trio. That's who we've been since birth: Nate, Leo . . . and me, Quinn, the token girl. Our mothers met in a prenatal class and became best friends, which meant that the three of us hit every milestone together, from the first day of school to the very first kiss. And beyond. I've always been caught in the middle between the two boys. I've been in love with Leo since I was eight, even though he doesn't see me as anything but his pal. And I know that Nate's hung up on me. I see the look in his eyes. I wish I could say I felt the same, but I don't. It's getting harder and harder to keep him in the friend zone, though. Things between the three of us aren't easy anymore. Leo's popular, the football team's star receiver, and the object of every girl's fantasy. I know he doesn't mean to leave us behind, but now Nate and I are just people he used to know. What used to be so simple is suddenly messy and complicated. Leo is all I've ever wanted, but even if I had the chance to be with him, how would Nate would handle it? When that chance does come along . . . in the most unexpected way . . . I'm helpless to resist Leo. What was always meant to be is finally happening . . . but will it come at the risk of losing both my friends?

Questions and Answers with Tawdra!
Q: I know that your process was different for this story, WHEN WE WERE US. Do you usually write from beginning to end, or start in the middle and work your way out?
A: It was different! With just about every other book I’ve written, I’ve begun with chapter one and just soldiered through. But with this one, I picked it back up from where I’d begun five years ago . . . and to my surprise, I didn’t write it in order. I actually wrote several random chapters out of order and then the end, and then went back and connected everything. It was just how the scenes came to me . . . which was odd, but it worked!
Q: Do you always know where a story is going, or does it sometimes surprise you?
A: I’ve had some unexpected twists happen—characters who become bigger and more important than I expected, or relationships that just don’t gel. But I always know the end; it’s just that sometimes the story takes a different path to that destination.
