Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

It's always hard choosing favorites, particularly between the two protagonists, so I'm going to cheat and choose from the secondary characters. I would say that my favorite character is Cilla. She's spoiled but sweet, well-intentioned but clueless, tough but scared, and traumatized but idealistic. I truly enjoyed figuring out what someone in her situation might be like.

On the other hand, Nolan's sister Pat was the most straight-up fun to write. The book can get pretty gloomy, and I think it really needed someone like Pat as a down-to-earth voice and source of humor. She's also one of the only characters in the book who developed entirely on the page rather than as a result of brainstorming beforehand. In chapter three, someone I never accounted for knocked on the bathroom door, and she grew from there.(less)

Corinne Corinne said: " I'm in this! My story is "And the Rest of Us Wait," which is described on the back copy as such: "Teens form an all-girl band in the face of an impending comet."

I mean, what else are you going to do?

It shares a setting with my novel On the Edge of Go

I've got a story in this one! In the ARC it's called "One, Two, Three" but in the final edition it'll be titled "A Curse, A Kindness."

It's my first queer autistic character, and probably the fluffiest YA story/novel I've written to date.

I am absurdly
