Myra goes to Haiti with one goal: take the photograph that will win a scholarship and prove to her uber-traditional family that she has what it takes to be a photographer instead of a doctor. Her camera has always been her shield against getting too close to anyone, but she didn’t expect the hot teen translator who has an ability to see past her walls.

Elias needs his job as a translator to provide for his siblings. He can’t afford to break the rule forbidding him from socializing with a client. Except this girl Myra insists on going outside the city to capture the perfect picture, and he steps in as her guide in order to keep her safe.

The deeper they travel into the country, the harder they fall for each other. Now they’re both taking risks that could cost each other their dreams.

If they get too close—it could ruin both their lives.

Thanks so much for taking the time and spending time with us here at Chapter by Chapter!



Describe your book in 140 characters or less (like a Tweet)

Myra travels to Haiti to get the perfect picture for a scholarship. She doesn’t plan for the perfect guy… who could ruin everything



What was your inspiration for writing this book?  Was it in a dream? A thought while taking a walk?

Two things combined to inspire me to write Pushing The Boundaries. 1) I have always wanted to write a book set in Haiti. It’s a place I’ve loved since I first visited when I was 11 years old.

2) I wanted to write a Crush book! I went to an Entangled conference after they bought my first book NAKED and they were just rolling out a brand new teen imprint, one based off of their adult category romance success. I thought it was a super cool idea! I remember driving from Canton to Columbus to meet some writer friends for the day and plotted this book out as I drove.



Tell us about the main character(s).

Myra is a Pakistani-American teenager who wants to be a photographer to get away from her family and their expectations. Myra uses her camera as a shield, to keep people away.

Elias has never left his native country of Haiti but he was lucky enough to learn English at a young age and get a great job as an interpreter.



Do you have a favorite quote or specific part in the book that you really love?

“I don’t know what you’re afraid of, but it doesn’t have to be me.” Elias



Was there a specific part in the book that you had an especially difficult time writing?  If so, why?

There was one scene I want to write (a scene where Elias brings Myra to his home to meet his family) but it just never seemed to fit anywhere. Eventually I had to give up on it (she does eventually see his home and family but not on the best of terms)



What sort of projects do you have going on right now.  Any new books coming out?

My editor and I are playing with a new Off-Limits book idea, but it’s still being developed. (Football player hiding an illness and his best friend’s little sister who knows his secret…)



It was great having you on the blog today!  We hope you’ll decide to stop by again someday, and we wish you much success!!
