Ireland Gill has spent well over a decade preparing the story line for this new YA series: Negative Zero. It was originally created with intent to be a graphic comic book, but instead turned into a full length novel...and kept growing. Having experienced the sudden loss of her father as a child, Ireland's fascination with the idea of the afterlife grew, along with her imagination throughout her adulthood which further inspired memorable characters whose stories had to be told.
Having been diagnosed with MS on Friday the 13th of September, 2013, Ireland decided she would no longer sit on her series idea that had been mostly already written. Eleven months later, "Negative Zero" (self-published) is not only the first book of her series, but al

You can have those "blocks," yes...they are terrible. If I've set time aside to write and I have a block, I use music to help me through it. If that doesn't work, I walk away for a while (plenty to keep me occupied - 3 kids). Most of the time, I'm lucky because I like to wait for something I call the "writer's bolt." I can be anywhere (driving, walking in a grocery store, working at my day job) and I'll get hit with a fabulous idea that is like the eureka moment. Once I'm home, it gets written down. I was just "struck by lightening," so-to-speak. THOSE are the moments that a writer needs to embrace.(less)
Ireland Gill Simple. Being able to create characters who readers can connect with so deeply that they almost become real.
