Thank you, Georgeana. To answer your question, I came up with the idea for SOME QUIET PLACE one day when I’d typed something totally cliché, like, “Fear rooted me in place.” I sat back, frowning, and wondered how I could make this utterly unique from other moments consumed by fear. Somehow, that fear became a tall, blonde, snarky creature that roams the earth and instills terror into every human being simply by touch. It became Fear, who is now one of my favorite characters.

As for what I'm working on, I'm always writing! My project is definitely young adult. I don't know if I'll ever write another book set in the world of personified emotions, but that door is never closed! It's just a matter of being inspired and finding the right story. (less)

My First Indie Project

In June of 2015, my agent and I sold a novel on proposal.

It was a middle grade project. I’d submitted a synopsis and the first twenty pages, and at first, that was good enough for the publisher. Up until that point, the biggest challenge for me in my writing career had been turning in quality revisions and meeting deadlines. When this novel sold, I had no idea what was in store. Which was several Read more of this blog post »

“I could hear my heart beating. I could hear everyone's heart. I could hear the human noise we sat there making, not one of us moving, not even when the room went dark.”
Raymond Carver

“There are no safe choices. Only other choices.”
Libba Bray, A Great and Terrible Beauty

“I wondered if that was how forgiveness budded; not with the fanfare of epiphany, but with pain gathering its things, packing up, and slipping away unannounced in the middle of the night.”
Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner

“And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.”
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

“But even when I stop crying, even when we fall asleep and I'm nestled in his arms, this will leave another scar. No one will see it. No one will know. But it will be there. And eventually all of the scars will have scars, and that's all I'll be--one big scar of a love gone wrong.”
Amanda Grace, But I Love Him
