Of course I love writing all my books. The KATANA series was super fun, because I adore comic books and I wanted to give them a comic book feel.

LIFE UNAWARE was more a challenge. Because it does deal with dark situations like bullying, anxiety, and suicide, I had to dig into my own experiences dealing with those subject matters. So, while it was the hardest book to write, it's definitely the one I'm most proud of.(less)

Oh, this book. You know how some authors talk about the book of their heart? Well, this was the book of my gut--as in gut wrenchingly painful for me to write. Writing this book put me in therapy.

Literally.

While this is a work of fiction, I grew up in

“Whenever someone says some- thing about us, it gets written inside us, permanently. The good words, the ugly words, it’s all right here.” I placed a palm against my chest. “Sure, you can scribble out the words or try to paint over them, but beneath the layers of paint and ink, they’re still there, branded to our cores like initials carved in a tree.”
Cole Gibsen, Life Unaware

“The other ninja righted himself and moved beside her. "Any last words?" he asked.
I rolled my eyes. Why did people always ask you that before they killed you? It wasn't like you were going to say something that would make them change their minds.
"Yes," I answered. The first tendril of power pushed though my wound and wisped the hair around my head. If I was going down, at least I would take them down with me. "Why did the chicken cross the road."
She hesitated and glanced at the guy. Her eyes were scrunched in a way that I knew she was frowning under her mask. The other ninja looked at her and shrugged.
I licked my dry lips. "To escape the onslaught of exploding ki headed his way.”
Cole Gibsen, Senshi

“But he was wrong about the sun—I didn’t need it. All the sun in the world wouldn’t stop a flower from dying—if it had no one to care for it.”
Cole Gibsen, Breathless
