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)

“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”

" Thanks! I have those in the works and hopefully plan to get those finished this summer! "
Three Roads Home by Travis Thrasher
“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.”

Loved this unconventional end-of-the-world novel. I love the self-reflection and the introspective nature of the book. The style is very literary and works to its advantage. Taking out quotation marks gives it a whole different look and feel. There's ...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

Moriah Elizabeth 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. :)
