I loved your Starcrossed series and was interested in how your stories cleverly blended historical facts with a modern day twist. Do you have a love of history and does this influence your writing, perhaps providing that first idea which slowly metamorphisizes into a book?
I do love history. I think there are so many haunting stories in both myth and in actual events, like with the Salem Witch Trials. I like tying my books to something that actually happened--it makes it feel more grounded to me.
