Hi Sereleaf!
Thanks for your question! Paranoia will absolutely be translated into Spanish and it will be soon. As I understand it, they expect it to release in Argentina sometime in 2015! I'll post a release date as soon as I know it. :)

Finn is so much fun. He is basically a combination of all my favorite traits in people that I love. I formed him in my head and he isn't based on someone specific that I know, but if I did know him, I'm sure we'd hang out all the time. :) Thank you for reaching out to me and thanks for reading! :)

Take care-- J.R. (less)

Hi Jorge!

I just returned home from Mexico! It was a wonderful trip and I loved my visit. I actually studied psychology at my university. I also did some specific research on sleep deprivation and what it did to the body. It was fascinating (and sometimes terrifying) to study.

My inspiration for Insomnia was my own dreams. They're strange and I started wondering what other people would think if they saw my dreams, or what I would think if I saw theirs. It was fun to consider and then the rest of the idea just kind of grew from there.

I'm so happy you're enjoying the book and I hope my response answered your question. Thank you sincerely for reaching out to ask me about the book!

Take care and keep reading!
