Kea Alwang lives in New Jersey building worlds, reading, and indulging in severe caffeine and chocolate addictions. Her podcaster husband, film-obsessed son, book-munching daughter, and self-absorbed parakeet are among those who put up with her unnatural attachment to the keyboard. Despite creating characters who can’t wait to leave this planet, she actually loves the Earth, but wishes bullies and the word moist would just disappear.

May the fourth be with you! Here's to another Star Wars Day. Any plans for the occasion this year? Originally, I had thoughts about hitting Disney's Hollywood Studios today, but between independent work, part-time work, and school, my family wouldn't arrive until after 7 pm. Instead, as I go about...

“So is this being in love? I stay with the moment, waiting to find out, the space between us fluctuating with uncertainty. The only thing I am sure of is that each time his lips leave mine they are right back again.”
Kea Alwang, Treehugger

“That’s when I notice Cheryl and Mickey cuddled up on the couch. She’s leaning on his shoulder, his arm around her, her leg across his lap. Cheryl throws glances at Kerry that say, “Look at me!” while Kerry shoots a “You go, girl!” smirk right back. I think of CK, how he and I often sat like that. Not because we were seconds from making out or wanted to look like a couple, but just out of a deep, platonic connection. My heart hits a higher notch on the ache-o-meter, my teeth sear into my bottom lip, and then something inside me snaps as cleanly as a crayon.”
Kea Alwang, Treehugger

“So I’m figuring this is death. The little air left in the cockpit is toxic with marthenine, and I can only wonder how much of it I have breathed in. Is my throat becoming raw hamburger? My lungs, oatmeal?”

Kea Alwang "Treehugger," my YA sci-fi novel is on the front page of Addicted to eBooks today! http://www.addictedtoebooks.com
Check it out if you get a chance! The cool thing is that just yesterday, I was giving myself over to the chaos of life in order to stop trying to control everything so much (see my post: http://www.keaalwang.com/2012/05/the-...) Wow, I guess sometimes you just have to let go and leave it all to a higher power.

Kea Alwang Oh dear ... the trouble with first person characters in a novel is that sometimes they just can't shut themselves up! It seems Chloe (Star) of Treehugger went off without me and did an interview on Alison Bruce's Nighthawk blog! Thank you so much Alison ... I hope she wasn't too much trouble!
