The Alpha Drive actually started out as a contemporary, new adult novel that was loosely based on my life in college. I wrote half of it before giving up on it, then let it sit for about a year. One day, while I was doing my hair, the entire plot for The Alpha Drive suddenly hit me. I realized right then and there that I wanted to write YA sci-fi.
