Nowadays she writes on her laptop rather than in a notebook, but not much else has changed. She now lives in Portland, OR.

P.S. I tend to only rate books that make my "Best of the Year" roundup blog posts (in other words, prepare yourself for many five star ratings about a year in between). But I may also add a few reviews for titles I really adore.

“I would die for my brothers, but I sure as heck wouldn’t do what they told me to. They’re idiots.”
Shelby Bach, Of Sorcery and Snow

“Chase nuzzled the carpet with his cheek. “You’re my new best friend.”
Shelby Bach, Of Giants and Ice

“You’re awesome,” I whispered to Chase, taking the burger from his hand. I would have never admitted that if I thought he was awake, so I jumped when he mumbled, “I know.”

“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”
C.S. Lewis

“When my mom was alive, she read me stories every night. ”Use your imagination, Lorelei,” she’d say, “and your whole life can be a fairy tale.” I wanted that to be true. But I should have paid more attention to the fairy tales.”
Nikki Loftin, The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

“Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
Roald Dahl
