I was afraid to write and even more afraid that someone would see it. Obviously, I didn't have any ideas that someone would want to read about. Until I got an idea that wouldn't let me go. I had to write it down. The second case came about while I was writing. I had too many ideas and didn't know which one to take first. It helped when I figured out how to structure my ideas so I had a framework to use. I could sort my ideas by the age of my protagonist. Writing came easier after that.(less)

Published in 2016. A YA novel. This is book three of the Reckoners Series. I couldn’t get my hands on the first two books but I read book three without a problem. I’m sure a lot happened in "Steelheart" and "Firefight" but nothing in this book begged me to read the earlier books.

The book begins with an attack on a remote fortress by David and his gang of Reckoners. They’re resisting the takeov... Read more of this blog post »
