The panic of the two when they realize where they are, the tangled shower curtains, the flailing limbs...every part of that scene had me giggling when I was writing it.

I also had a lot of fun writing the kitchen table scene where Stryder gives Krystal the bouquet of flowers. The way the girls (especially Phee) treated that poor unsuspecting bouquet...and poor Stryder...*stifles giggle*

It's kind of ironic, because there were so many huge and heavy scenes that I enjoyed writing. But the little lighthearted scenes scattered throughout the book were the ones I loved writing the most.(less)

I've always wanted to write a book that involves a time loop--I've been fascinated with the concept ever since I was a teenager. Maybe Groundhog Day is to blame? ;) Anyway, I'm not sure where exactly the idea for Chasing Echoes came from, but I can tell you that the concept was somewhat inspired by the novel REPLAY by Ken Grimwood. In Grimwood's story, the protagonist is forced to repeat his entire life over, and this generated a bunch of "what-if" questions in my head. Teenage years are so volatile, so my first question was "What if a teenager was forced to repeat the same segment of her life over and over?" Then another layer was added to the question: "What if she was forced to repeat the same few weeks of her life over and over with a boy she hates?" After that, the what-ifs were relentless, and Chasing Echoes was born.

My next book (BLACK LILIES) was originally scheduled to come out this December, but due to some major life changes my family is going through, the book's release has been postponed. Updates on my next release date will be posted on Facebook and Twitter.

Thanks for reading!(less)

“I love the rain. It calms me down, somehow, soothes my reckless heartbeats. It’s like chamomile tea for my soul.”
Jodi Perkins

“Fake it till you make it.”
Jodi Perkins, Chasing Echoes

“I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.”
D.H. Lawrence, The Complete Poems of D.H. Lawrence

“Do not fall in love with people like me.
I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth.
I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible. And when I leave you will finally understand, why storms are named after people.”
Caitlyn Siehl, Literary Sexts: A Collection of Short & Sexy Love Poems
