Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx.

I actually never *explicitly* wrote that Claire was celibate—I wanted to keep it a little vague and open-ended. Ryan says that he knows he was her first, but he doesn't assume she hasn't been with anyone since him—and he still wants to be the best she's ever had, no matter what. So FWIW he didn't go into things thinking that she was celibate, even if he never asks for the details of her dating history. (It was important to me to write a hero who would NOT expect his ex to never be with anyone else again, and who wouldn't be weird or aggressive about her personal life and her choices.) Claire talks about how hard it is to date as a single mom who works full time, which to me also suggests that she has some experience trying to make that work. I didn't think it was fair to either character to assume that they wouldn't be with anyone else for 5 years...but I also know that since they were busy with their own lives and ups and downs, neither of them would have a ton of time or energy to invest in dating. So definitely no serious relationships! I agree completely that it wouldn't be fair to assume that the woman isn't dating while the guy is sleeping with whomever he wants. (less)

Then -- and I know this sounds crazy, but it's true! -- I woke up one morning deciding the book would be called Make Me Stay and the ski place Gold Mountain. I love the way it sounds like it could be a real place but also has a little bit of whimsy. And with a name like that, it has to be beautiful! From there, I had a sense of place and purpose and started writing right away. I have a lot of ideas come to me as I'm falling asleep or when I first wake up. I think I'm more creative then because I'm not thinking (as much) about the zillion things I have to do during the day. (less)

I love Neal Stephenson. A long, knotty, weird, fast-pased female Bildungsroman should be right up my alley. But I admit that I didn't love this book quite as much as I'd hoped. It's set in a future in which humans have perfected the use of nanotechno ...more

Make Me Stay by Rebecca Brooks
“It didn’t matter that she didn’t live here, that a relationship was out of the question. It was probably because a relationship wouldn’t happen that he could let himself get this close. He wrapped his arms tighter around her as though this were all that existed in the world. Just the two of them, the mountain, the clean winter air. The taste of her tongue on his lips.”

Make Me Stay by Rebecca Brooks

“Sweetheart, I have no intention of denying you a thing.”
Rebecca Brooks, Make Me Stay

“It didn’t matter that she didn’t live here, that a relationship was out of the question. It was probably because a relationship wouldn’t happen that he could let himself get this close. He wrapped his arms tighter around her as though this were all that existed in the world. Just the two of them, the mountain, the clean winter air. The taste of her tongue on his lips.”
Rebecca Brooks, Make Me Stay

“She couldn’t stop kissing him. Literally could not. There could be an earthquake, a fire, an explosion—who would notice? The whole world could come crashing down and it wouldn’t be enough for her to pull away.”
Rebecca Brooks, How to Fall

“The kiss was so soft she couldn’t believe this was the same bad boy who’d said such things to her with that mouth.”
Rebecca Brooks, How to Fall

“Her fingers traced his stomach, trying to remember this is real, this is real with each strike of her heart.”

He shook his head. “Nobody.”
