I love all my characters so it’s hard to pick but I think writing Matty Jones in EIGHT DAYS ON PLANET EARTH was my favorite. I’d never written a teenage male POV but his voice was so strong in my head! He was also so much fun because he loved all the things I love: Star Trek and space and science and pizza too. (less)

But from current lit, specifically YA, I love Flora & Henry from Martha Brockenbrough's "The Game of Love and Death." Like R&J, they are kept apart; in this case, Flora is African American and Henry is white. But what keeps them apart are Love and Death, two immortal beings who pick sides in a game in which the players are innocents and completely unaware of the rules. Their love story is touching and romantic and heartbreaking. If you haven't read the book, you really should, especially if you're a romantic.(less)

In other words...Turkish & German!

One of the most exciting things to happen to a writer is to have her work translated into another language. It's only happened to me once before when THE LEAVING SEASON was translated into German by a HarperCollins subsidiary, HarperCollins Germany. It was translated by a German writer into DER SOMMER DER UNS TRENNTE, which in English is, THE SUMMER THAT SEPARATED US. Very romantic, eh? It was tre Read more of this blog post »
