Kellyn Thompson is a science nerd who loves playing out the what-ifs that arise in her mind when she reads the latest scientific publications and studies.

Dave Cullen added a status update: Today, "Parkland" debuts on the NY Times bestseller list. In my 50s, officially no longer a 1-hit wonder. 2nd book, 2nd bestseller.

So many thanks to everyone who bought it, and everyone out their helping spread the word. Amazon reviews are SO helpful, plus posting pictures with the book or just telling your friends.

And biggest gratitude to everyone who trusted me with your story. I hope I did it justice.
