This Much Is True
Fate brings them together
Fame & lies keep them apart
One truth remains…
She’s become the Paly High girl with the most tragic story…
At 17, Tally Landon just wants to graduate and leave for New York to pursue ballet. Her best friend Marla convinces her to attend one last party—a college party—where she can be among strangers and evade the whisperings about the heartbreaking loss of her twin that follows her everywhere she goes. She meets Lincoln Presley, Stanford’s famous baseball wonder and has a little fun at his expense—when she lies about her age and who she really is—intent on being someone else for the night and escaping her tragic story.
His only focus is baseball, but he can’t forget the girl he saved on Valentine’s Day…
Fate soon tests these star-crossed lovers in all kinds of ways...
And yet, despite the lies being told to protect the other, and the trappings of fame that continually separate them, and in lieu of the deception by those they’ve come to trust the most; one truth remains.
This much is true.

8 facts about This Much is True
• It took a year and a half to write.
• It should be two books but I decided to keep it as one because I hate cliff hangers.
• This Much Is True is an emotional roller coaster kind of story and it will keep readers guessing. As other readers have commented in their reviews: You want it to work out for these two but you’ll spend much of your time wondering “how”.
• Tally Landon is an enigma as a main character. Readers will love her deeply or not at all. All I can do is remind readers that she is seventeen, talented, worthy, and capable of making big mistakes (huge ones), but she learns from them. Eventually.
• Lincoln Presley (the main male character) is a golden boy in the sense that he works hard and expects that proverbial pay-off for doing so. This works well for him, until he meets Tally Landon. Then, I think it’s safe to say he is off balance the majority of the story until he figures it out.
o As one reviewer put it and I wholeheartedly agree: “He definitely is an American sweetheart, and his funny and witty side comes at some of the most inopportune moments. However, this gives him the power to diffuse the bomb that is Tally Landon.”
• With this book, This Much Is True, I seriously tried not to kill anyone off (character, we’re talking character here) but, inevitably, some had to go. (Others were spared; and I talk about this in the Q & A section at the back of the book.)
