Book Excerpts : Opening of my third novel: Three, Two, One 3 12 Oct 23, 2009 08:41PM  
Dean Koontz
“But once an idea for a novel seizes a writer...well, it’s like an inner fire that at first warms you and makes you feel good but then begins to eat you alive, burn you up from within. You can’t just walk away from the fire; it keeps burning. The only way to put it out is to write the book.”
Dean Koontz, Lightning

Cassandra Clare
“My rapier wit hides my inner pain.”
Cassandra Clare

Ted Dekker
“Live to discover, as long as discovery leads to a love that comes from the Creator... writing was the mirror to life.”
Ted Dekker, Showdown

Ted Dekker
“The four rules of writing... 1. Write to discover. 2. There is no greater discovery than love. 3. All love comes from the Creator. 4. Write what you will.”
Ted Dekker, Showdown

Cassandra Clare
“There is no pretending," Jace said with absolute clarity. "I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I'll love you then.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Glass
