I know you're busy working on Ashes, but do you have another realistic fiction title in mind? I bought and read The Impossible Knife of Memory as soon as it was out (twice), and recommend it to my students every day. No pressure, but...I love your books!

Thank you so much!! I've got a couple of ideas circling my head, waiting for their turn to land. Along with ASHES, I'm sneaking in work on a Secret Project for NaNoWriMo this month - totally different from anything I've ever written before and so much fun!
