Available in 2013, How Not To Make Friends, is the long-awaited sequel to How Not to Save the World. It is a fast-paced suspense novel set in a world of high culture, high fashion and high-tech gadgetry, about a band of three friends who make a pact solve the world’s problems, big and small.

Remi is a fundraiser for the African Peace Collaborative, a nonprofit focused on conflict resolution across the African continent.  Izi is a designer and inventor who creates gadget-packed gowns for the women’s adventures. Alex is a medic for Doctors without Borders, with an obsession for antiques and Doc Martens.

Based out of San Francisco, the three friends start their adventure in Brazil, responding to a cyber call for help from a young Brazilian woman caught up in human trafficking.

The friends attempt to return to their normal lives only to be called upon again and again as they develop an underground reputation as problem solvers.

Surrounded by an intriguing international cast of characters, Remi and her friends crisscross the globe, saving lives and testing the limits of international law, until one betrays the others and their carefully designed pact falls apart.
