Tracey Neithercott’s first book was written by hand and illustrated with some really fancy colored pencils. It was highly acclaimed by her mother. Now, she writes YA stories of friendship, love, murder, and magic. (None of which she illustrates—you’re welcome.) She lives in Massachusetts with her husband, who suggests improving her novels by adding Star Wars characters.

She is the author of GRAY WOLF ISLAND, a YA novel about the truth, a treasure, and five teens searching for both.

Hi Cintia,

I sure can relate. I've spent a lot of time discouraged or intimidated by writing and publishing. It's true that there's a lot of competition and getting a book published is difficult, but think about it this way: All published authors were in your position at one point. I try to think about this when I lose confidence in a manuscript. If my favorite authors had stopped writing because they worried the competition was too great, I would never have experienced their stories. Another thing I have done to take the pressure off myself is to tell myself the book I'm writing is just for me, regardless of whether it eventually gets published or rejected. That helps me push forward when I'm feeling discouraged.

It sounds like you love to write, which means you'll come across an idea sooner or later. Don't let fear stop you from writing. Writers who are published have one big thing in common: They don't give up. I hope you don't either!(less)

“I give him the kind of smile only shared between two people who desperately hate something and thoroughly enjoy hating it together.”
Tracey Neithercott, Gray Wolf Island

“Ya'aburnee. In Arabic, it's hoping you die before someone you love because you can't bear to live without them.”
Tracey Neithercott, Gray Wolf Island

“I shouldn't want to be like these boys, who cease to exist without each other. It's a dangerous thing, flinging open your chest and begging another person to burrow inside without breaking anything”
Tracey Neithercott, Gray Wolf Island

“I read once that the ancient Egyptians had fifty words for sand & the Eskimos had a hundred words for snow. I wish I had a thousand words for love, but all that comes to mind is the way you move against me while you sleep & there are no words for that.”
Brian Andreas, Story People: Selected Stories & Drawings of Brian Andreas

“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“What do you want from me?" he asks.
What I want from every person in my life, I want to tell him.
More.”
Melina Marchetta, Jellicoe Road

“She leaned down and looked at his lifeless face and Leisel kissed her best friend, Rudy Steiner, soft and true on his lips. He tasted dusty and sweet. He tasted like regret in the shadows of trees and in the glow of the anarchist's suit collection. She kissed him long and soft, and when she pulled herself away, she touched his mouth with her fingers...She did not say goodbye. She was incapable, and after a few more minutes at his side, she was able to tear herself from the ground. It amazes me what humans can do, even when streams are flowing down their faces and they stagger on...”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief
