Yes, I definitely hope to write more books from Chris Buckley's perspective. My current YA series connects with The Solitary Tales. I hope to launch a series that shows Chris in college. I see it darker than The Solitary Tales with the setting in Chicago. Maybe--hopefully-these could even see the light of day next year perhaps? (less)

On MIDNIGHT

Part One 

Late at night on Christmas Eve of 2013 after watching It’s a Wonderful Life, I felt like I was having a heart attack. Enough to drive myself into the ER (I know—driving myself wasn’t the best idea). After being examined they didn’t understand what was happening. I appeared to be fine but they could see that there was a strain happening on my heart. Since I had just gotten over a terri

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

“I've got a lot of homework to do, and none of it has anything to do with school.”
Travis Thrasher, Solitary

“She ever marry?"
"No."
The no sounds like "not in a million years." Like Aunt Alice couldn't marry, like she has one arm and horns sticking out of her head and she talks in tongues. Or maybe has several tongues to talk with.”
Travis Thrasher, Solitary

“Sometimes you can lock the doors and close the blinds, but the monsters are still there inside your house, sleeping and breathing and just waiting to wake up and terrorize you all over again.”
Travis Thrasher, Marvelous

“Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free.”
Stephen King, Different Seasons

“Writing a novel is like taking a long cross-country journey. The hardest part is getting going, making sure you have all the items you need to take with you, double- and triple-checking that the route you’re taking is the best way. So often you leave your driveway and start north when you realize you actually needed to head southwest. I’ve never written a novel without a certain number of false starts. And it never seems to get easier. Part of me thinks it only gets harder.”
Travis Thrasher, Three Roads Home

“What would it be like to be a white page, starting from the beginning with stories untold and memories unmade? To start with a blank slate and go from there?"-Travis Thrasher, Broken”
Travis Thrasher, Broken

Moriah Leech My dad and I are really enjoying the Solitary Tales!! Just bought them on a whim with some of my graduation money and REALLY glad I did!
Great job! Particularly on dialogue and character development. Chris is literally one of the most believable and lovable characters I've seen in a while. :)
