About this author

I'm a 20-something writer originally from the fantastic (and possibly mythical) land of Central New Jersey. I currently live in New York State with my husband and my cat, who might just be the most intelligent being in our household.



Yesterday, Molly and I stopped by the local Barnes & Noble to pay a visit to my books. A helpful employee let me sign stock, and we laughed and made jokes about the stickers he’d put on the cover:Autographed copy. It felt so normal! But so incredible, too.


It was a rite of passage I’ve waited a long time to make. Not just for the last year, but longer–ever since I was a teenager, I’d look fo...

I was a beta reader for this so you can't expect me to be objective, but it remains, two years later, gripping, haunting, and thought provoking. Steph is the Robert Cormier for our time.

The Midwife by Jennifer Worth

oddly structured and very uneven--the show takes this raw material and crafts a more cohesive narrative out of it, with a bit of glurge and a few liberties.

Pushed by Jennifer Block

An excellent overview of the politics of birth in modern America; birth choice remains relatively unexamined even in feminist circles, and block presents a rigorous argument as to why this should not be the case.

Eugenia Thanks for accepting my friend request :)
Looking forward to reading and discovering more of your work.

Best wishes for more books in the future,
Genie


J. A. Owen  What's crackalackin Phoebe! <3


message 33: by Heidi

Heidi Bwahaha, Phoebe, I'm so glad you sent that slightly awkward friend request! I am nothing if not eternally awkward and loving it. A) Charles Wallace Murray is an AWESOME choice, and I think I'd rather be him than Meg too. B) The fact that you have a blue Pernese dragon tattoo is pretty much the COOLEST THING EVER...I 'may' have once belonged to a Pern fan fiction community in which I wrote a character who was a vintner and a brown dragon rider. C) YES, we should definitely chat books (I totally want to read The Crossing which you are reading atm and I first heard of today).


message 32: by Rebecca

Rebecca Hi Phoebe, I wondered if you'd seen the latest episode of Doctor Who. Tis even more obnoxiously sexist than The Girl who Waited. And pretty dodgy ethically overall. *burns tardis*


Jenn "Awww Yeaaahhh" Funny, I thought we were too! :) Can't wait for your new book, sounds really good!


J. A. Owen  I cannot wait for your debut novel! I'm so excited! :D :D :D :D :D :D

Awesome so far! Really enjoying it.

Weirdos are the best people. :)

Bern Hey Phoebe, thanks for the friendvite! I'm glad you liked the review, I was terrified people would lynch me because I'd liked The Selection but as it turns out, everybody already knows that I'm weird anyway. Now I feel bad and not mysterious. Dammit. But hey, how's Magisterium going?


message 27: by Sarah

Sarah Hi Phoebe! I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your comments on the science fiction/dystopia/romance thread that's been kicking around GR the last couple days. You addressed a lot of hot button issues I have with the way folks talk about books and their respective merit. :)

Angela Hi, thanks for the friend request. Glad you liked that review :-)


Barbara (VampAngel) Hey Phoebe, thanks for accepting my friend invite. I too look forward to discussing books with you and reading your reviews. I'm a bit lazy when it comes to writing my own reviews, but I do enjoy a good book discussion (usually "inside" my friend's reviews).

Shirley Marr Hey Phoebe, thanks for wanting to hook up and be friends, I am very honoured indeed!

Steph Sinclair Hey Phoebe, did you hear that Google will be discontinuing Google Friend Connect for all non-blogger blogs in March 2012? I saw on The Intergalactic Academy that you guys have hit 100 followers! Congrats!


message 17: by Regina

Regina Thanks for the friend invite -- you beat me by seconds. :) I was about to request you. I agree, the Ashfall discussion on Kat's review is one of the best discussions I have had on GR. Thanks for your thoughts. I look forward to discussing books (and maybe more) with you!

Thank you, Ashelynn! I'm excited about sharing it with you.


Ashelynn Phoebe!! Congrats on your book deal; i freaking LOVE the premise of it and can't wait to read STARGLASS! :)


J. A. Owen  Hey Phoebe! Notice you read a lot of genre's. There is a new author out her and her name is Patti Roberts. You've probably seen my status updates not quite sure but you should really give her series, Paradox: The Angels are here a read! I think you will really like it!

Vinaya Andrea Tompa emailed me! And gave me an interview! Thanks Phoebe, I owe you one! :) *hugs*


Vinaya Are you a Twilight fan? Because if you're not, you should thank HarperTeen for not giving you Starcrossed! It's pretty much Twilight of the Demigods. :)


Queequeg I love reading your reviews, Phoebe. Keep up the good work.
