Actor/Author Page

Hello everyone!

As I'm sure you can tell, I have been very busy in college, getting my BFA in Theatre Arts. I have slowly but surely continued writing my next novel, Tossed Together, and I hope I can share more about that with you later.

In other news, I want to share with you my official website. This will host a combination of information on my acting AND writing life. These are both important parts of who I am, and I needed a space to combine them. This will still remain my author blog and I will occasionally update it, but my new website will be my central location for everything related to me.

Thanks for staying with me on this ride!

The Lost Girl of Astor Street Clue Hunt: Clue # 7

Hello, everyone! Welcome to Stop #7. Keep reading for your clue!

I am so excited to be taking part in Stephanie Morrill's clue hunt for her latest novel, The Lost Girl of Astor Street.

Lydia has vanished.

Lydia, who’s never broken any rules, except falling in love with the wrong boy. Lydia, who’s been Piper’s best friend since they were children. Lydia, who never even said good-bye.

Convinced the police are looking in all the wrong places, eighteen-year-old Piper Sail begins her own investigation in an attempt to solve the mystery of Lydia’s disappearance. With the reluctant help of a handsome young detective, Piper goes searching for answers in the dark underbelly of 1924 Chicago, determined to find Lydia at any cost.

When Piper discovers those answers might stem from the corruption strangling the city—and quite possibly lead back to the doors of her affluent neighborhood—she must decide how deep she’s willing to dig, how much she should reveal, and if she’s willing to risk her life of privilege for the sake of the truth.

From the glitzy homes of the elite to the mob-run streets of 1920s Chicago, Stephanie Morrill’s jazz-age mystery shows just how far a girl will go to save her friend.

I've been a fan of Morrill's books for quite awhile, but what intrigues me the most about The Lost Girl of Astor Street is that it's set in the 1920's! I am a huge fan of the 1920's, so I thought I would share with you some of my favorite fashions of the era, courtesy of my Pinterest Board.

Thanks for reading! Clue #7 is.... PIPER
