Among other things, I was an English major in college and so I know that I'm supposed to write things like, "Ilsa J. Bick is ." Except I hate writing about myself in the third person like I'm not in the room. Helloooo, I'm right here . . . So let's just say that I'm a child psychiatrist (yeah, you read that right)as well as a film scholar, surgeon wannabe (meaning I did an internship in surgery and LOVED it and maybe shoulda stuck), former Air Force major—and an award-winning, best-selling author of short stories, e-books, and novels. Believe me, no one is more shocked about this than I . . . unless you talk to my mother.

(Frankly, I wish ALL my books would be made into movies or television shows; I think the ASHES series would be a FABULOUS tv show, don't you?) There's been interest, which is always encouraging, but I've also learned over the years not to get too excited. You may get queries and phone calls and all that . . . but very few of these types of things work out.

You know, at the end of the day...you write boks to write books, not movies. At least, I do.(less)

Quotes by Ilsa J. Bick  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Why can't you like me?" he said, his voice breaking. His scent steamed then, hot and heady with a welter of contradictions: apples and fire and electric roil of those cold, black shadows. "Why can't you like me just a little?"

She would never know how she might have answered, because he never gave her the chance.

Instead, he kissed her.”
Ilsa J. Bick, Ashes

“They call it the drowning instinct. It's when drowning doesn't look like drowning.”
Ilsa J. Bick, Drowning Instinct

“Follow your heart. Just don't get lost.”
Ilsa J. Bick, Draw the Dark
