It's nice to hear from you, and thanks for the question, it's such a good one! ATW definitely has some dark themes, but lighter ones too: beauty and bravery, what makes a real friendship, loyalty and freedom. Told through Julia's point of view, there were times when it was a relief to get of her head! I think that as long as the places a writer goes make sense for the story, and nothing is gratuitous, road blocks won't appear. At least that's how it was for me.

As for what inspired me, I was interested in bravery in its many forms, especially when it comes to girls. We have so many female characters in YA who demonstrate courage through physical strength and daring. I wanted to create two characters who have to use their wits--and in Liv's case, make unthinkable sacrifices--to be free.

Equal parts fierce and funny, Kylene Danners is the friend you wish had your back. Natusch throws the reader into a pulse-quickening quest for justice that left me whiplashed in the best possible way. I want—no, need!—to see what Kylene does next!
