I deal with writer's block by not having it! See, I have a full-time job, am the mom of an active 10-year old and sometimes, I have to sleep. That doesn't leave a time for writing -- an hour a day, every morning between 6:15 a.m. and 7:15 a.m. -- and no time for not knowing what to write. And since I want this new series to succeed, and since I know my time is limited, SOMETHING'S going down on a piece of paper every. single. day.(less)

Hi, Diane!

Thanks so much for the compliments and lobbying -- novelists can never have enough! I appreciate your tremendous support and I'm so glad that you love Lou and her stories. I'm having a great time writing her adventures! The next story, TRAIL OF ECHOES, will be out next year this time. Lou returns to the Jungle after a teenage girl is found dead on a trail in a nearby park.

Can't wait to share it with you!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I feel strange right now -- my daughter graduated from fifth grade and there's no homework to do... except for mine, which is finishing the first draft of the fourth Lou Norton novel.

Best,
Rachel(less)

Rachel Hall answered Cedricsmom's question: Rachel Howzell Hall
Hi, Cedric's mom! Thanks for your question. I'm fortunate enough to have a day job as a fundraising writer for a big medical center here in Los Angeles. That helps maintain my writing muscle. Also, I get up at 4:40 every morning to write before work See Full Answer
