Occupying someone else's mind is a wonderful thing, and that's exactly what I try to do when I'm fleshing out a new character. For me, writing is a peaceful experience, a serene reprieve from the chaos of everyday life. Quite frankly, even if I'd never ended up published, I know I could never give up writing because it's woven so tightly into my personality:)(less)

Hi Melissa!

CREED is fully fabricated and actually originated from a dream my co-author had, but we are aware that cults do exist in various forms all over the world. That's what drew us to write this particular story - the "it could happen" aspect is scary, perhaps scarier than your typical slash and gore horror is. We love a good monster as much as the next guy, but we also love exploring the darkness of the human mind!(less)

R.L. STINE BLURB!

I could not be more honored or grateful that literature legend R.L. Stine read my upcoming middle-grade novel, Scritch Scratch, and loved it. His blurb is below. Now excuse me while I go faint.

"This is a teeth-chattering, eyes bulging, shuddering-and-shaking, chills-at-the-back-of-your-neck ghost story. I loved it!"
--R.L. Stine, author of the Goosebumps series

“love Ms. Mancini. She’s the only teacher I have who wouldn’t shame a student for falling asleep in class. I think she remembers what it was like to be in seventh grade and that’s what makes her so good at her job.”
Lindsay Currie, Scritch Scratch

“Hey, I know what would totally cheer up this day,” Emily says, a conspiratorial smile on her face. If you vanished? I think to myself, then immediately feel bad. Girls should be nice to other girls. Lift them up instead of tearing them down, as Mom would say. Besides, Emily hasn’t done anything wrong, really.”
Lindsay Currie, Scritch Scratch
