Yes, I definitely hope to write more books from Chris Buckley's perspective. My current YA series connects with The Solitary Tales. I hope to launch a series that shows Chris in college. I see it darker than The Solitary Tales with the setting in Chicago. Maybe--hopefully-these could even see the light of day next year perhaps? (less)

Never view the work you do as a writer or as an artist in success or failure terms. Creating is a reward itself, even when the end result is not as satisfying as you hoped it would be. Or even when you don’t reach the end in the first place.


Here are some of the projects I’ve worked on in the last 8 years. These aren’t ideas–I have hundreds of those. These are actual projects I worked on in one...

Stephen King had more impact on my youthful aspirations for writing than any other author. But just like King, I've changed a lot since being a teenager and discovering books like THE STAND, IT, and DIFFERENT SEASONS. And honestly, I haven't really l ...more

Love unreliable narrators. Amazing thing is this book really picked up in the MIDDLE, something many novels never do. The much-talked about ending didn't bother me--felt it fizzled out a bit. But still a remarkable work about really awful people.
Travis Thrasher made a comment on On The Sea
" I have it planned out in my mind. Another four books. This time in college.

Poor Chris.
"
" That's a great review, John!! Thanks so much. Appreciate you checking out these books and so glad you liked them. "

“I've got a lot of homework to do, and none of it has anything to do with school.”
Travis Thrasher, Solitary

“She ever marry?"
"No."
The no sounds like "not in a million years." Like Aunt Alice couldn't marry, like she has one arm and horns sticking out of her head and she talks in tongues. Or maybe has several tongues to talk with.”
Travis Thrasher, Solitary

“Sometimes you can lock the doors and close the blinds, but the monsters are still there inside your house, sleeping and breathing and just waiting to wake up and terrorize you all over again.”
Travis Thrasher, Marvelous

Moriah My dad and I are really enjoying the Solitary Tales!! Just bought them on a whim with some of my graduation money and REALLY glad I did!
Great job! Particularly on dialogue and character development. Chris is literally one of the most believable and lovable characters I've seen in a while. :)
