Cari Z. is a Colorado girl who loves snow and sunshine. She has a wonderful relationship with her husband, a complex relationship with the characters in her head and a sadomasochistic relationship with her exercise routine. She feels like Halloween should happen every month, which is why you get this picture of her, and hopes that you enjoy reading what she's put out there as much as she enjoyed writing it in the first place.

Hi Rosiina!

I'm so glad you loved it! When I started getting this question, at first I was like, "Really? People want more?" Then I got into it, and the short answer is: yes, if my proposal for a sequel gets accepted by Dreamspinner, there will be one.

How likely is that? I don't know. I submitted the proposal last month, so hopefully I'll hear back soon. I'd love to write about Davis and Tennyson. I've even got an idea for a third book, so...keep your fingers crossed!

Hi Dyan!

Oh, excellent, I'm so glad you liked the first 2! There's going to be at least one more Panopolis book published, and it's written and in edits right now. Where There's A Will will come out this May.

Thanks for asking :)

Chapter Thirteen, Part One


Thick fingers choked Cas just hard enough to keep his airway free, but cut off the blood flow to his brain. Cas slammed his forearms down in an effort to break the hold, but they hit body armor. His attacker was wearing most of a power suit—all but t... Read more of this blog post »

“No, you don’t get to touch yourself in my car.”

“Why not?” It wasn’t a whine, it wasn’t. My voice was too deep to whine. It was more of a… whoan. Or something. I couldn’t think.

“Three reasons. One, I don’t want to get into an accident trying to keep my eyes on you. Two, if I got into an accident, or if we were pulled over for indecent exposure, the mood killing would be the least of our problems. Three,” and here it was, the tone I loved, that I could barely wait for even though I knew I wasn’t going to like what he had to say, “for the rest of the night, that’s mine. Don’t touch it.”
Cari Z., Making It Work

“Well, why don't you whine about it a little more? That's sure to help. (Garrett Caractacus, Pandora)”

Dreamspinner Press: Different Spheres by Cari Z. 1 6 Feb 22, 2012 02:51PM  
“There are no choices without personal freedom, Buckeroo. It's not us who are dead inside. These things you find so weak and contemptible in us---these are just the hazards of being free.”
David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

“That sometimes human beings have to just sit in one place and, like, hurt. That you will become way less concerned with what other people think of you when you realize how seldom they do. That there is such a thing as raw, unalloyed, agendaless kindness. That it is possible to fall asleep during an anxiety attack. That concentrating on anything is very hard work.”
David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

“You can be shaped, or you can be broken. There is not much in between. Try to learn. Be coachable. Try to learn from everybody, especially those who fail. This is hard. ... How promising you are as a Student of the Game is a function of what you can pay attention to without running away.”
David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

“I like the fans’ sound at night. Do you? It’s like somebody big far away goes like: it’sOKit’sOKit’sOKit’sOK, over and over. From very far away.”
David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

“Oh, love isn't there to make us happy. I believe it exists to show us how much we can endure.”
Hermann Hesse, Wer lieben kann, ist glücklich. Über die Liebe
