Which also sounds like it's short for something, but nope. My grandmother's name is Virginia, so it's sort of a family name. For the record, I've always wished they'd just named me Virginia. It would make a better-sounding byline, I think.(less)

It's probably my favorite of any cover I've ever had, and I've been really happy with all of them. We settled on it pretty quickly--the designers always liked the merry-go-round theme and imagery, so the only other serious contender was an image with just one horse and pole. It was really striking, but this one won out. It feels to me both more compelling and riskier than the first one. And I love the 3-D effect.(less)

Let me tell you the two most common questions I’ve heard in the three weeks since Fierce Kingdom was released: 1) What’s the deal with the movie? 2) What happens at the end of the story?


So here goes: First of all, as for the movie, it is not an actual thing yet. There have been movie rights sold, and there’s a screenplay in process, but that does not equate to a real, buy-your-tickets movie. Th...

" Thank you! I still see it more as a book about motherhood than a thriller, so I'm glad the mother/child angle hit so close to home.
Best,

“I hand over a lot of things when I'm home. Mom tells me she doesn't like my shirt I want to buy, and I hand it over. Not the shirt itself, but my wish for that shirt.

But I think sometimes you need to put a thing in a box -even if the box is inside your head -and store it away for yourself.”
Gin Phillips, The Hidden Summer
