Arie’s Birthday

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ARIE!!!

Six years ago today, I opened my beat up secondhand MacBook and plunked out the very first words of my very first novel for my very first NaNo adventure—a novel about a fifteen-year-old girl giving her whole soul trying to survive—and I didn’t know it then, but that moment would change my life forever. Arie and I have pulled each other through the very worst the last six years, and I wouldn’t be anywhere without her. Today, as I celebrate with my best friends in a beautiful place, I’m just so grateful to be here. I’m grateful to Arie for giving me strength at my lowest, to God for showing me the gift of words, to every person in my life that has shown support for me and Arie, and to 2012 emilee, who was plagued with ruthless self doubt and picked up the pen anyway 🖤

To celebrate, readers submitted in their favorite quotes from each book in the series. Keep scrolling to read them below!

Again, to all of you who support me and my words, I’m sincerely grateful. And to Arie, I love you forever. Happy birthday, beautiful girl. Thanks for everything.
