The Quarantined series is finished, but it was actually the start of what is turning into a web of stories. Last year I wrote the Survival Series that takes place about nine years after Quarantined and follows a new cast of characters as they survive the fallout. There are important cameos by Quarantined characters, though. Both Alissa and Jordan and even a little girl named Beth...
I'm also working on a third series set in the same world called Rising. The first book, Gods of the Dead will be coming out in June. (less)

It made me very nervous to write a character with a mental illness, especially one so bold faced and blunt about it. I didn't want people to think I was making light of it or insulting anyone with any specific disease. I honestly felt like Ali was someone real. Someone living with the disease who was determined to not let it rule her entire life. I wanted to make her strong, but vulnerable. Determined and loveable, but flawed. My inspiration came from a friend who was struggling with an illness very similar to Ali's. It was terrifying both for her and her family, but they made it through, they got the help they all needed, and now she's flourishing. She's making the absolute best of the hand she's been dealt and I found her strength and the strength of her family so inspiring. (less)
