Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
I actually had a dream that sparked the idea for SHE'S POWERFUL TROUBLE. A boy fell over a waterfall, and this girl who loved him fiercely used telekinesis to pull him to safety. It was an idea born during my senior fiction thesis at Chapel Hill, and in its first incarnation, it was a 60-page novella that featured nothing about grief or a struggle between light and dark magic. It's a completely different story now, but at the end of the day, the central idea's still there...first love is this incredibly beautiful, painful, insane, wild thing.
