She met Chip at an author signing in a Barnes and Noble in 2008. After realizing they had a commonality in Taylor University, one thing led to another, and before she knew it, she was helping him with projects, research, and all the little stuff she now assumes he just didn’t feel like doing.

She released her author marketing book The Extroverted Writer: An Author’s Guide to Marketing and Building a Platform in 2013.
