The MC is three months shy of his 21st birthday when the story opens (but yeah, that's still young). Beyond that, I guess my answer has three parts. First, I've always loved exploring a variety of themes and characters. Second, I haven't written a YA/Coming of Age story since The Zero Knot, so the time felt right to revisit that subgenre. Third, and probably most important, I'm appalled by what many kids, GLBTQ in particular, have to endure on the road to adulthood, and what kind of impact those experiences can have on their lives. Since young people can be a lot more psycho-emotionally complex than we give them credit for, there are plenty of YA stories left to be told. I hope that answered your question. :-)

I might be taking a break from writing, but I haven't taken a break from thinking. ;-)

Simply put, I want to see the rating system for books disappear, primarily from Goodreads. I wouldn't mind seeing it disappear from privately-owned review sites, too. Those stupid stars (or marmosets or dandelions or whatever) have caused more grief and contention than anything else in the bookworld -- or at... Read more of this blog post »

“As soon as I saw that doll all splotched with mud, I saw myself, saw how soiled I was. Or thought I was. From that minute on, I felt liked I'd slipped through a hole in God's pocket. Just took a dive right into the dirt and was lost forever."

Greg kissed Faron's hair. "You never hit the dirt. You just slid from one pocket to another. That's what I did too - I took a journey I was meant to take. I know that now."

Absorbing this, Faron slanted a puzzled look at Greg. "Which pocket do you suppose I landed in?"

"This one. The one we're in together. The one I believe we'll stay in."

Faron felt a thrill of optimism in his heart. "I never thought of it that way."

"I never did either. Until today." Greg once again settled onto Faron's chest. His cheek moved noticeable into a smile. "God isn't small, honey. God has a lot of freakin' pockets. And we just found the one we belong in.”
K.Z. Snow, A Hole in God's Pocket

“I'm supposed to quote myself? Seriously? I know I'm a clever wench, but modesty muffles my ego.”
K.Z. Snow

“Because I lay with him… I’ve caught a glimpse of heaven. Or I understand what I need. Or I have the courage to be myself.”
K.Z. Snow, The Zero Knot

“I haven't any right to criticize books, and I don't do it except when I hate them. I often want to criticize Jane Austen, but her books madden me so that I can't conceal my frenzy from the reader; and therefore I have to stop every time I begin. Every time I read Pride and Prejudice I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone.”
Mark Twain

“I suspect that one of the reasons we create fiction is to make sex exciting.”
Gore Vidal

“I have never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.”
Daniel Boone

“When I was six I had a chicken that walked backward and was in the Pathe News. I was in it too with the chicken. I was just there to assist the chicken but it was the high point in my life. Everything since has been anticlimax.

Flannery O'Connor

“How is it they live in such harmony, the billions of stars, when most men can barely go a minute without declaring war in their minds?”

K.Z. Snow Good thing I'm such a demure little straight girl, Thorny, or that protective spouse I've heard about -- what's his name again? Jazz? -- might open a can of whup-ass on me! Those tough guys can really get gnarly when they're sexually frustrated. (Which reminds me . . . has your narcolepsy cleared up?)
