TEXT ME Authors Share Their First Love Stories

Today we have a special treat. To celebrate their story bundle TEXT ME: 8 Novels of First Love, the authors are sharing their own first love stories. It is sort of like a box of chocolates. You never know what might be inside until you take the bite.

Be sure to read about the deal they have on their bundle too!

Shana Norris (author of Surfacing)
Hi, I'm Shana Norris. My first love was my cousin's friend, who I met at my cousin's eighth birthday party. We skated together, he bought me a little plastic ring from the gift counter, and then…I never saw him again. Brokenhearted at an early age!

Amanda Brice (author of Codename: Dancer)
Hi, I'm Amanda Brice. My first love was a sweet boy named Matt. We held hands on the bus and kissed at the junior high dance. He moved away during the summer between 7th and 8th grade and I didn't see him again for 20 years. We ran into one another on the Metro in DC one day in our early 30s. He looked nothing like he did back then but I knew it was him because he was wearing a sports team jacket that had his last name -- and it's a very unusual last name. Weirdly he recognized me right away.

Shel Delisle (author of Winging It!)
Hi, I’m Shel Delisle. In seventh grade my first love had buck teeth, probably because he hadn’t gotten braces yet. When we kissed, our teeth would bump and even after we went our separate ways I just assumed that was the way it was supposed to be done, until sometime later when another boy told me I was “doing it wrong.” 

Juli Alexander (author of Stirring Up Trouble)
Hi, I'm Juli Alexander. My first love lasted only a few days.  He was six, and I was five.  He lived across the street, and we used to climb the tree in his yard.  We shared a kiss while sitting in the tree.  To this day, the taunts of sitting in a tree, ki-ss-in-g bring back the memory of the nameless, faceless boy, the tree, and the litter of kittens I loved even more than I loved him. 

Elle Strauss (author of Clockwork)
Hi, I'm Elle Strauss (sometimes I go by Lee Strauss). My current love has been my love for 27 years. We promised we'd grow old together - and we are!

Cindy M. Hogan (author of Confessions of a 16-Year-Old Virgin Lips)
Hi, I’m Cindy M. Hogan. My first love came slowly, softly. It ended the same way. But, somewhere in-between, it hit me, hot and hazardous.

Kate Avery Ellison (author of The Curse Girl)
Hi, I'm Kate Avery Ellison. My current love (and husband of six years) was a close friend of mine who was determined to remain "just friends" until a ruptured appendix landed me in the hospital, and he realized how scary the idea of losing me was to him. We went on our first date as soon as I was well enough to sit in a coffee shop.

Kat Brookes (author of Chasing Puberty)
Hi, I'm Kat Brookes and I married my first love.  I picked him up during a girl's choice couple skate at our local rollerina.  We were 15 and 14 at the time.  Different schools.  Different states (we both lived near our state lines - 5 miles apart).  The next day he rode his bike those 5 miles to see me.  Even got a flat tire and had to have his dad come get him.  I knew he was the one.  And he still is.  :)
