I'm working on another book that I think will appeal to fans of Girl Underwater. I can't say much about it because I'm not yet sure if it will be published - we'll see! I'm so appreciative of all the readers who have spread the word and/or posted reviews about the book - those things really help a debut author build an audience.(less)

I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I've spoken with people who survived traumatic experiences, mostly having to do with their time in the military. Their stories really helped to inform the emotions that Avery and Colin experienced in the wake of the crash.(less)

“And he helped you do it?"

"No, sweetheart. He told me I could do it.”
Claire Kells, Girl Underwater

“Once we're safely out of earshot, I crouch down and tilt his head up to mine. "Tim, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to confuse you like that."

He looks down at his boots. "It's okay."

"We should have told you right away that we're just friends."

"I still would've been confused." He pauses. Says confused a second time, correcting the lisp that tends to sneak back in when he's not concentrating.

"Why?"

He gazes up at me with those pale green eyes, a mysterious blend of innocent and wise. "Because Colin loves you.”

“Two hundred and four people died that night,” I say, seeing their faces, hearing their screams. “Shouldn’t you be telling their stories?”
