When I first drafted this back in 2010, I was reading a lot of YA about romance, but not enough about the intense bond you have with your friends when you're in high school and college.

I’m beyond excited to announce the sale of my new book, BLOOD MAKES NOISE, to Annie Berger at Sourcebooks.

This book is filled with music and friendship, first love and lust, dancing and theater, as well as New York City and so many other things that I value and love writing about.

It's also about fear. Fear of not being able to figure out who you are and fear of not liking the answers once yo...
