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)

The Arc of a Scythe series is one of my absolute favs, so when I saw Gleanings on NetGalley, I might have squealed with glee (I totally did).

I’ve had The Chalk Man in my TBR for longer that I’d like, but so many books! When I was offered an ARC of the author’s short stories, I knew the time had come to get acquainted. And now I’m kicking myself for waiting this long to read her novels.

I never missed an episode of House when it was on, and when I saw that Omar Epps (Dr. Eric Foreman) had co-written a book, there was no doubt I’d read it. And just look at that stunning cover!
