Can you be totally, absolutely, completely, brutally honest with another person if you are not first honest with yourself?

𝗖𝗛𝗔𝗥𝗟𝗜𝗘 𝗦𝗔𝗡𝗗𝗦

When I was fifteen, my best friend, Greyson, made me promise to be totally, absolutely, completely, brutally honest with him. Not a day has gone by that I haven’t broken that promise.

Don’t worry. I’m not some sort of sick monster.

But how can you be totally, absolutely, completely, brutally honest with someone else when you can’t even admit the truth to yourself? It’s much easier to hide behind the lie I’ve been telling myself since the day I met him, a guy like Greyson Steele could never fall for a Tomboy like me.

𝗚𝗥𝗘𝗬𝗦𝗢𝗡 𝗦𝗧𝗘𝗘𝗟𝗘

Humility is not thinking more or less of yourself than you really are. So, technically I’m being humble when I say that for most of my life I was the best at everything. Baseball. Looks. Charming the pants off women from eighteen to eighty two. But twelve years ago Charlie Sands proved me wrong.

The first time she verbally handed me my balls, I knew I would never outsmart that girl. And no matter how often my mind wandered down the path of lust, Charlie deserves a guy who can keep up with her lightning fast brain. And that guy would never be me. But I’m only human. And worse, a dude.

So, over the years I may have slipped a time or two. Let’s just hope she chalks it up to my stupidity and not to anything more insidious, like me purposely breaking her famous Poe Friends Rules. Because I would never do a thing like that. I promise.

Author’s Warning: California Promises is an angsty, friend-to-lovers romance about a brilliant, surfing tomboy and her anxious, fireman best-friend. One click for a hilarious, double-dating summer goal, a breezy escape to the beaches of San Diego and Maui, and a fantastic group of friends. California Promises is the first in the Warrior Women Series, a RomCom series full of female surfers who happen to have diabetes and other autoimmune issues and the men who are strong enough to be with a warrior woman.

This is an #ownvoices story for its portrayal of type 1 diabetes by an author with type 1 diabetes.

About the author

Erin Spineto started her writing journey in 2011 with Islands and Insulin, her memoir of sailing solo 100 miles down the Florida Keys with type 1 diabetes back in a time when doctors were foolish enough to recommend against this kind of wild adventure with diabetes. She followed it up a few years later with Adventure On, a nonfiction book on using adventure to increase motivation to take care of chronic conditions like diabetes. Since then she has moved on to fiction and is currently working on Warrior Women, a three-book angsty RomCom series full of female surfers who happen to have diabetes and other autoimmune issues.


Erin’s journey with autoimmune conditions started in 1996 with type 1 diabetes. She added hyperthyroidism to the mix in 2007, and has rounded out her collection with a little Anti-Synthetase Syndrome, which she thinks is so appropriately abbreviated ASS. Not letting anything slow her down, Erin is also a long-distance endurance adventurer and autoimmune advocate who uses stories to encourage others with chronic illness to go big. 


Erin started surfing at age five when she stood up on her boogie board and realized waves were so much more fun to ride standing up. Since then she has had a love affair with empty beaches, warm water, and a post-surf lunch of fish tacos and Diet Dr Pepper (though she’s had to give that up to fight the ASS) eaten on a patio in the sun with her own real life hero, Tony, and their two surfing teenagers.
