First, THANK YOU. I've thought about it since people have been asking me, but I'm not sure. There is a lot to their story left, of course. But I have so many other stories to tell, too. I think I would have to really feel like a sequel was needed. If I wrote one, it'd definitely be an adult novel. Which I've never written! But could be fun...(less)

First, thank you so much! I am currently writing my next contemporary, which comes out Feb. 2017. It's called Bad Romance and it's about a crazy bad relationship between a girl in high school and her college boyfriend. It's also about hard family stuff and how best friends are the real love of your life. I'm really excited about it! :)(less)

“And maybe some people are like collages - no matter how broken or useless we felt, we were an essential part of the whole. We mattered.”
Heather Demetrios, I'll Meet You There

“If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?” I opened my mouth to say San Francisco or maybe Madrid—somewhere exotic. But what came out was, “Here. Right here.”
Heather Demetrios, I'll Meet You There

“I don’t really know what it means to move on, but lately, with Sky, I’m starting to feel like I want to because when I look at her, I don’t see you or the war or any of the shit in my head. I just see her, and it’s like suddenly I can breathe again after holding my breath for so long.”
Heather Demetrios, I'll Meet You There

William H. Gass, A Temple of Texts

“If you would tell me the heart of a man, tell me not what he reads, but what he rereads.”
Francois Mauriac

“I am not sure that I exist, actually. I am all the writers that I have read, all the people that I have met, all the women that I have loved; all the cities I have visited.”
Jorge Luis Borges

“I would hurl words into this darkness and wait for an echo, and if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of the hunger for life that gnaws in us all.”
Richard Wright, Black Boy

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
