Hi John:

It’s usually something small that catches my interest. I start with that and then spin out a story.

In my latest book, the idea for the Trail of Terror came from the road I lived on for fifteen years in the Hollywood Hills. It was a rutted, one-lane track that ran along the side of a canyon past our home and up to a beautiful lot with a view of the city. A single mother lived there with her daughter. Sometimes our homes seemed to me these perfect, secluded hideaways from the world, but on a really dark, stormy night, mine, at least, felt lonely and vulnerable.

Our neighbor was a social creature who always had friends coming up and down the road for parties and gatherings.

I thought it would be fun to write about a single mother living in this setting; thus, the birth of Nicole Adams and her son Justin in What We Do for Love. Nicole, Justin, and my other characters were invented by me and, beyond the initial premise, have no resemblance to any real people; similarly, I made up the events of this book from my imagination.

So, although the people and events of this book are fictitious, you can rest assured that the Trail of Terror is real. I’ve lived there.

Finding More Readers through Wattpad

This was originally posted at www.janefriedman.com


As the author of three indie novels, I was looking for ways to expand my base of readers. This blog’s very own Jane Friedman suggested that I try Wattpad, an online writing community where authors post their work for free. In April 2014, the site reported 35 million unique visitors per month, which is a lot of exposure for one little indie book, if Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Anne Pfeffer  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“That’s when I realized it. I liked this girl. A lot. I liked her super-moist double chocolate chip cupcakes. I liked how kind and patient she was with the guests, the way her forehead crinkled when she was thinking about a problem. I liked her low, soft voice and that long ribbon of platinum-blond hair. I liked the way she looked at the world, as if it were an okay place, where good things were actually possible. ”
Anne Pfeffer, Girls Love Travis Walker

“How can you know if you’re normal when you’re always alone? You have no one to compare yourself to. I mean, I have my mom and dad, and I’m pretty normal compared to them. But then… a lot of people are normal compared to them”
Anne Pfeffer, Just Pru

“When I first saw you, I thought you were both the handsomest andthe saddest boy I'd ever seen.”
Anne Pfeffer

How nice of you to write! I would love it if you read my book. By the way, I noticed you live in Scottsdale, AZ -- that's my hometown, although I haven't lived there for years! Say hi to the place for me.
