Her first novel, BEASTS OF EXTRAORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCE, was a finalist for the 2017 Book of the Year Award from Book of the Month Club and was a Target Book Club Pick in 2018.

I don't have much of a routine these days (I just write whenever I can squeeze it in my schedule, honestly), but back when I was writing BEASTS, I usually set aside a few hours in the evening to write. I don't like writing in the morning because I'd rather be out and about, but evenings are perfect because I can relax and get cozy on the couch before opening up my lap top. If I get stuck and need inspiration, I go for a walk (which is probably why so many of my stories are set in the woods).(less)

“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“There are no happy endings.
Endings are the saddest part,
So just give me a happy middle
And a very happy start.”
Shel Silverstein, Every Thing on It

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not.”
Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline
