Eighteen-year-old Sophie Shelton has left behind her comfortable, naive life in Kissimmee, Florida for a startling awakening at the University of Miami. When she begins college, she’s determined to concentrate on her education and future career as a writer. However, her life takes an unexpected turn, and she finds herself thrust into a world she never knew existed.
Immersed completely in a world of sex, love, and cutthroat Greek life, she finds herself dating the freshman quarterback, yet developing feelings for his best friend. Her own best friend advises Sophie to stop leading the two guys on, but she finds that her heart is torn. She knows her path could go either way based upon a seemingly simple choice. Who does her heart belong to? Will she be able to make the choice?
Freshman Year, book one in the These Four Years series, will cause you to fall in love with the angst and joy of college, and understand the difficulty of Sophie’s predicament at the center of a love triangle.
How does music affect your writing?
Music greatly affects my writing. I think music is everything. Music sets mood. Music makes us believe in love, in something greater... just like writing. Honestly, I cannot write without music. It feels like there’s an empty space without music. I tend to listen to emo rock and alternative rock. Sometimes I throw in pop and country, but I mostly find inspiration from rock. When something in my writing gets a little sappy (or romantic or electrified or angry), you will know exactly what kind of music I was listening to in that moment. Snow Patrol keeps me on track for the most part. What would I do without Gary Lightbody?
