Christina Dodd I don't get writer's block. I write books. It's my job. So I do it.

I always try to remember the advice I heard long ago — start as far into the story as you can. But once, with DANGER IN A RED DRESS, I started far into the story and kept having to go back and back and it turned out where I had originally started was about 100 pages into the book. I'm currently writing the fourth Virtue Falls suspense and I think I nailed the first chapter. But this is what keeps me enthralled with writing — it's always different and new and I never really know what I'm doing. Maybe someday…(less)

Sure, you're snorting. But this is the best book I've ever written, a special book about two damaged, broken people who are barely hanging onto life and sanity, and they are so damned funny about it. Of course, not everyone is going to agree when the ...more
Because I'm Watching by Christina Dodd
The New Haven Project by Jessica Marie Gilliland
“In the end, dying isn’t the hard part. Everyone always treats death like it’s such a traumatic ordeal. But death is quiet and unless it happens instantaneously, it comes up to you like an old friend and wraps itself around you and just holds you there. It cradles you as you let your fear envelope you and burn through you. But you can only struggle against the inevitable for so long, and once you get over the panic and accept what’s happening to you, it’s actually almost kind of pleasant.

No…death isn’t hard.

Living, however…now that’s the real ass-kicker.”
Kimberly Gourgon

“All I wanted was a man who could love and who loved me, who I could share my secrets with and know his.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“For as long as I could remember, I had always been the girl who had watched her father kill her mother.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“Elizabeth understood as she never had before. Everyone, all of them had lived secure in the belief that the earth was stable, unchanging, eternal.
Now no one could trust the ground beneath their feet.
Yes, the earthquake was the story of destruction, but not just of things. An earthquake destroyed security. It destroyed complacency. It changed the people who lived through it.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“It was like living with a bad action movie, all excitement and motion, and no character development.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“No matter how they fought they had always been like this: balanced between anger and passion, between hurt and glory.
When they first got together, she didn't understand how two people who had so little in common could be so madly, passionately in love.
When they split, she had realized madness and passion could never keep a couple together.”
Christina Dodd
