C.L. Lynch is a socially awkward introvert living in Vancouver, B.C. She wrote her first novel, Chemistry, because she wanted to write a book which was “the exact opposite of Twilight,” featuring an assertive heroine and a respectful love interest. She ended up with a snarky zombie rom-com which Foreword Magazine called "funny and irreverent" and YA Book Central called "awesomely sarcastic and completely witty".

I've marketed as Young Adult because it is about a seventeen year old girl and it deals with high school issues such as bullying, body image, and first love. Plus zombies. I mean, remember YOUR first zombie outbreak? Talk about embarrassing. Would never want to be a teenager again!(less)

I assume you're asking if the character comes into my head before writing. That is definitely the case, although usually just one or two main characters. The rest sort of populate the world as I write and often those characters are the ones I enjoy writing the most - like Stella's parents, who were not pre-conceived but are some of my favorite to write, and who also appear to be fan favorites as well.

I have some characters floating around my head who don't have a home yet, and I spend a lot of time trying to create a plot for them.

Stella was kind of a special case, as she's the only character I conceived with pen and paper. When I started to write her, she came to life and became so much more than her bullet point list.(less)

I mean, it's better than the first one but it's so long! Also, mashing-up New Moon AND Eclipse together made for kind of a complicated plot as well as a long book. But if you liked it, you can get free novellas about the characters from www.cllynch.c ...more
