Hello! I'm the author of the YA fantasy duology Spindle Fire & Winter Glass, YA speculative contemporary Proof of Forever, and the upcoming YA contemporary Frozen Beauty. I also wrote the poetry collection Acquainted with the Cold, which won the 2012 Foreword Book of the Year Award. I'm one of the founders, and President of Publishing, at creative development company Glasstown Entertainment. I live in Carroll Gardens with my husband, daughter, and a very skinny orange tree.

Writing is not supposed to be easy. And you should not settle for decent--you should strive for greatness, otherwise what's the point!!?? To that end, take classes, share your work with other writers and mentors, and practice-practice-practice. Always challenge yourself--it's not just about putting words down, it's about putting exciting, special words down in innovative, thoughtful, emotionally-committed ways. BE your characters. Live and breathe what they experience, and that will come out on the page.
And, if you're in need of some structural advice or other inspiration, check out Paper Lantern Lit's GET LIT video series!!! Loads of really helpful stuff here, folks, and I'm in two of 'em--and Lauren Oliver's in one as well! :) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...-(less)

“Life doesn't always hand you the answers. Sometimes the best you can do is make a decision and stick to it. Tali's dad always says that the best business decisions rely on intuition, after all. There isn't always a right move, just a move that feels right.”
Lexa Hillyer, Proof of Forever

“No matter how much you try, you cannot change the future. You cannot change. Not really. That's the problem with optimism, with hope. You end up disappointed.”
Lexa Hillyer, Proof of Forever

“You know, I used to love looking at the stars at night. I used to think they were put there to guide us. Now I know they are just watching and winking, mute observers, bemused by our failures and our loss.”
Lexa Hillyer, Spindle Fire

“I was falling. Falling through time and space and stars and sky and everything in between. I fell for days and weeks and what felt like lifetime across lifetimes. I fell until I forgot I was falling.”
Jess Rothenberg, The Catastrophic History of You and Me
