Jaiden, thank you for your lovely thoughts! It means the world to me to hear from readers who enjoyed the Green Lake gang. <3

I am working on another book right now. It's not a sequel to Truest, but it does have some of the same elements (I hope!): broken but beautiful characters, ideas to chew on, and lots of kissing. ;-)

I had expected it to come out next year, but there are a couple reasons it might get pushed back. I just want it to be perfect.

All my best,

Oh Tess, thank you so much! That's so encouraging to hear. I'm delighted you enjoyed your time in Green Lake.

Solipsism syndrome is something I personally experienced, though a little different than what Laurel's story looks like. At the time, I thought I was just going crazy. For me, it turned out to be intensely connected to OCD, which I was diagnosed with shortly thereafter. Years later, I stumbled upon a Wikipedia article about it, finally had a name to label my experience, and knew someday I would write about it. And so I did. :-)(less)

“I'm seventeen. Seems like I only blinked and here I am. I'm speeding like a rocket toward death. I'm spiraling toward the end of now and the start of infinity. It's a countdown. But to what? Can't gift wrap eternity.”
Jackie Lea Sommers, Truest

“I don't care about probabilities. If something were one-in-a-million, I would wonder if the one had found me. It's the uncertainty that's torture.”

“...what was it like out there? Kind of describe it to us," Jessa says, beaming at them and then at me. Trini beams at her and there's a lot of beaming happening.”

William Faulkner

Joan Didion

“Writing a novel is a terrible experience, during which the hair often falls out and the teeth decay. I'm always irritated by people who imply that writing fiction is an escape from reality. It is a plunge into reality and it's very shocking to the system.”
Flannery O'Connor, Mystery and Manners: Occasional Prose
