About the Author

Olivia began writing creatively at eight years old. During middle and high school, she attended several writing conferences and submitted poems and short stories to various writing contests. She finished her first long work of fiction, a novella entitled Heaven's Song, in the tenth grade. Her short story "By Its Cover" placed first in its division in the 2008 District III Alabama Penman Creative Writing Contest. She took a reprieve from writing during her years at the University of Montevallo, where she earned a degree in history in 2012. She finished and published her first novel in 2014.

Olivia currently lives in central Alabama with her husband, to whom she's been wed since the age of twenty-two, and their cat, Buddy. When she isn't writing, she enjoys watching quality television--The Office (US), Parks & Recreation, 30 Rock, Gossip Girl, and Friends are her favorites--and cooking without recipes. Along with working full-time at her alma mater and studying English at the graduate level, she is busy working on her next literary adventure.

Hattie Green is your typical college student who wants to succeed and get good grades. She is the one who studies instead of parties. She is not the type to get involved in an affair with a professor, but that is exactly what happens. I had my concerns thinking that this would be similar to other stories about affairs with the professor, but Ms. Ard expertly twists the story and nothing is as it seems. Throughout the reader is guessing what happened to both Hattie and her roommate Claire. Why is Claire so promiscuous and what happened to Hattie over Thanksgiving? What will happen next? Why is Hattie so concerned that Cameron is the new TA? Why did the old TA leave in the middle of the semester? Again, nothing is as it seems. I cannot wait to indulge in the second book of the series.
