I'd been writing a contemporary story about a girl who survived a suicide attempt and the reaction of her classmates when she returned to school. Ultimately it was hitting too close to home. Then I saw a commercial for a medication and one of the side effects was that it could cause suicidal thoughts, especially in young adults. I began to research suicide clusters--which I had heard about before. That became the epidemic. And once I exaggerated the idea, I was able to focus in on the loneliness that Sloane felt. The hope she'd need to survive the series. (less)

HOTEL RUBY--new cover and title

HOTEL RUBY has a new cover and a new title! I'll be honest, I loved the original cover. It was creepy and cool and the model was to die for :) But in paperback, we thought we'd try a little something different.

The new title is HOTEL FOR THE LOST, one of the first titles I pitched when we were working on this book. It says a lot about the characters and their reasons for coming to The Ruby in the f Read more of this blog post »
