Although it may sound strange, when it comes to writing, the voice inside my head is that of a teenage boy. I'm sure my own sons are an influence, but one of my female friends has always said I'm a guy inside because of my interests and the way I think - I loathe shopping (unless it's a book store or electronics), 'chick flicks' generally bore me and I prefer 'guy' movies, and I've always told my husband if he ever felt the urge to get me flowers, make it a Best Buy gift card instead. While writing Sarah, Cain and Finn's voices came much easier to me than Lindsey or even Sarah. My next book involves teenage twin brothers, so I suspect my MCs will always be male.(less)

Eby is almost as cool as the cat he was based on - but not quite. Cain and Finn really came to life for me after I interviewed them and discovered things I didn't know. I always knew they had a strong bond, but not how it had developed exactly. Cain was usually more quiet and awkward, while Finn could be thrown into almost any situation and come out on top - and the things that fell out of his mouth were surprising and hilarious at times. But as the story progressed, I thought Cain developed into a more confident person because of what he experienced. The conversations between the two of them played out in my head effortlessly and I couldn't type the words fast enough. They just took on a life of their own.(less)

I’ve been a fan of this author for years and will read anything she writes. All of her books are different – she never writes the same type twice.

I’ve been a fan of dystopian novels for years, and I’m glad they’re making a comeback. With the MC being a fighter, I felt shades of Katniss from the description.
