Rule #1 to being a writer: Be a reader.
And don’t read what people expect you to read. Read the wild side. The dark side. Root for the bad guy and the good guy. A great book transforms your world. Steals you away to another dimension where the dog isn’t barking and the kids aren’t fighting and the food may be burning.
Great books are like drugs – addictive and hallucinatory. But sometimes finding them, isn’t easy. Sometimes convincing a non-reader to try a book is like communicating the rules of a rotary to a non-Massachusetts driver.
But all it takes is one book. Just one.
On June 1st at the Hyannis Library, I’m teaching Hooking the Teen Reader with Mick Carlon. We are going to talk about how we draw the reader into our stories, as well as our favorite, un-put-downable reads. Our books will also be available for purchase and for us to sign after the event.

Desperate for True North?
Are you on Cape Cod?
Well – you’re in luck, because Eila and her crew are back in a big way and are available TODAY at Titcombs in Sandwich, MA! Their stock is limited so call to reserve a copy, then get your butt to the store, grab the blood-red book, and curl up with a hot cup of cocoa, a warm blanket, and fall back into the twisted world of soul thieves.
Make sure you ask for the cool swag that comes with the first
