“God knows, I’m no expert on relationships, but I do know when something’s good. And this thing we’ve created between us is precious and rare. I only hope it’s not fleeting, because for the first time in my adult life, I’ve given someone the power to hurt me.”
Linda Castillo, Gone Missing

“Kinda like trying to hold down a leaf in a tornado, but I'll try”

So pleased to hear your coming to Michigan again. We previously met you in Lansing which is about 50 miles from us. But, we will make the trip to Gaylord if your not coming further south. Really appreciate the heads up, and a new book.


message 7: by Kelly

Kelly Knapp We met in Dallas at one of the Dallas/Forth Worth tea party and I adore your books. I rarely recommend books, because peoples' tastes are so varied, but I recommend your books often. Hope you come this way again...Maybe to Readers 'N Ritas (part of Fresh Fiction's party)?

Thanks for your note, Tara. So pleased you're enjoying the books and really nice to hear I inspired your grand-daughter. My publisher is working on tour events for After the Storm this summer. I'm pretty sure I'll be at Saturn books in Gaylord MI. Is that near your neck of the woods?


message 5: by Tara

Tara Rock Linda, thanks for the friending. We met you in Michigan a few years ago and have been reading your books as they hit the shelves; enjoy them immensely. My grand-daughter was quite impressed and very motivated after hearing your speak. Please, do come back to Michigan.

Linda Castillo Hi Barbara--

I hope you enjoy the book. It's darker than the movie in terms of tone, language and violence. Hope that's okay with you! I loved the movie, btw. Neve was an excellent choice for Kate Burkholder. I think just about every character was well cast.

Thanks for writing and have a great day!

Linda
