Awed, humbled, and infinitely grateful. Comments like this always make my day. I'm so, so glad she enjoyed SOME QUIET PLACE. I feel no pressure, only an intense desire to make sure she loves the next book just as much! (less)

Thank you, Georgeana. To answer your question, I came up with the idea for SOME QUIET PLACE one day when I’d typed something totally cliché, like, “Fear rooted me in place.” I sat back, frowning, and wondered how I could make this utterly unique from other moments consumed by fear. Somehow, that fear became a tall, blonde, snarky creature that roams the earth and instills terror into every human being simply by touch. It became Fear, who is now one of my favorite characters.

As for what I'm working on, I'm always writing! My project is definitely young adult. I don't know if I'll ever write another book set in the world of personified emotions, but that door is never closed! It's just a matter of being inspired and finding the right story. (less)

You may remember when I made the announcement for THE LONELY ONES, which is coming out in 2016. It felt bittersweet, because while I was ecstatic that my writing journey would continue, a year and a half is such a long time to wait to share another story with my readers. I honestly didn't expect to have a release for 2015.
Which is why I'm so excited to write this post.

It's interesting! The characters are extremely vivid. It's a bit of a slow starter, so I'm pushing through!"


AWESOME! I want to read it.
