I am thrilled you enjoyed "The Loop," and I will definitely be checking out "Big Flies."

The hardest character to write was probably Jimmy. Of all the characters, I think he makes the most dynamic (almost circular) arc. He really showcases how terribly flawed, hopeless, selfish, and brutal a human being can be, but also how that same person can quickly die to oneself, turn everything around, and really put family first when pushed into a deadly corner. It's hard to put a pin on what Jimmy finds most important in life until that very thing is threatened, so I think he was the hardest (but the most fun) to write.

The Finches (what's left of them) will be back very, very soon. I am currently penning the sequel, titled "That Which Was Golden." This time, the story will be set in Colorado near the Rocky Mountain National Park, years after the final chapter of "The Loop." Based on the title, can you guess who the main character will be?...

I also just released my second mystery thriller, an exciting standalone set in the wild Alaskan wilderness, called "Three Houses on a Hill." Check it out if you haven't already!(less)

Susanna Clarke is a master of building worlds that seem simple at first, but are actually subtly complex and leave you asking questions long after you've finished reading. And that's a good thing.

Quotes by Nicholas Holloway  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“For the first time in her career, she felt ashamed to be a member of the force. After all, was it really meant to be a force? Do sheepdogs force lambs into their pen? Or do they guide?”
Nicholas Holloway, The Loop

“By the time you read these pages, I will be bones in the earth.
I have thought of you every single moment since the night I lost you. As I lie here dying, I think of you still.
I have cried an ocean of tears in the hope that I will see your cornflower blue eyes again, though I know it can never be. I wonder where you will end up in this hurricane that has become your life. Much of it is my fault, for I am the man responsible for whatever has happened to you.”
Nicholas Holloway, Three Houses on a Hill
