Too goody-two-shoes for the rebels and too rebellious for the good girls and boys, Christa Miller writes fiction which, like herself, doesn't quite fit in. A professional writer for 15+ years, Christa has written in a variety of genres ranging from crime fiction to horror to children’s, but her favorite stories to write -- and read -- are those which blend genres. She has an affinity for the dark, psychological, and somewhat bizarre, but doesn’t let that stop her from snuggling baby animals as a volunteer at a local wildlife rescue, adventuring with her two sons in rivers, swamps and salt marshes, or relaxing with a good book and a cold beverage in her hammock. Christa is based in Greenville, SC.

I didn't think I had anything left to say in fiction, but during that time I experienced so much that gave me a rich reserve of places and emotions and people to draw from. Now I make a point of writing every day, but if I'm stuck I find it helps to do what I did for 7 years before picking my writing back up again -- do (or even just read) something new, live in those moments, without even trying to solve the writing problem. I've found that the solution works itself out once my brain has a chance to look at life in a new light.(less)

It's also an effective way to learn about new things. I write nonfiction for a living, and I love getting to talk to people about how things work and make the world a better place. I also love how my fiction my nonfiction complement each other -- my nonfiction is more creative, my fiction is tighter and more to the point. Generally I get to go wherever my brain takes me, and that's gold.(less)

The translation is a bit rough on spots, but overall this is a great epilogue and bridge that makes me eager to read METRO 2034.
