Yes, the books are suitable..no such language or explicit sex. (You know The Other Woman won the Mary Higgins Clark award, which is essentially her stamp of approval that the book is appropriate. And The Wrong Girl and Truth Be Told both won the Agatha, for mysteries in th vein of Agatha Christie) I've heard from many teenagers that they truly enjoyed them--the books are smart and fast-paced, and realistically about a woman journalist.
Hope this helps--let me know whatever I can do! And hank you so much fort your interest! (ANd WHAT YOU SEE, coming out this fall, features a teenager and her relationship with her mom!)

Of course the journalism is key--I've been a reporter for almost 40 years (!) --and it's taught me how to tell a story! Beginning, middle, end. Compelling ,and interesting, and entertaining. Important, and where the good guys win, and the bad guys get what's coming to them. And it's funny, after all those years, I get to make stuff up! And that was so intriguing to me--I wondered if my brain would do that, you know? After all these years of "Just the facts," would I be able to create a story simply from my imagination? And it's turned out to be amazing. (THE WRONG GIRL just won the Agatha!)

"Escape"? Oh, dear, Ami. There is no escape. But now, as a thriller author, I can call it all research. Thank you so much for your terrific question..keep 'em coming! (less)
