Berkley Massachusetts, here I come (unless I get lost).
Tomorrow (Tuesday, July 12th for those of you seriously upping your “Summer Brain” game and no longer understanding the ebb and flow of time) I will be at Berkley Library with two additional weirdos: Trisha Leaver and Kristy Acevedo.
Trisha writers horror that corrupts your sanity, as well as contemporary that requires you to ingest copious amounts of sunshine after reading or you will melt into the pavement in agony. She also writes a bit of “what if” Sci Fi that makes me seriously question what brand of glue she sniffed as a child. Her books are: The Secrets We Keep, Sweet Madness, Creed, Hardwired, and I See Reality
Kristy has hit the ground running this year with her debut Sci-Fi novel, Consider, which translates loosely to a tale about a panic-attack prone kid who is thrown into a “Crap, we’re doomed to die and screwed either way thanks to the creepy holograms” scenario. Kristy obviously enjoys torturing emotionally frayed characters and her readers happily scream for more.
And then there is me. The sane one. Sorta. Well . . . kinda.
Oh screw it – I’m the most warped of all. I just dyed my almost 8-year-old son’s hair green, but more or less skimmed the instructions, resulting in what looks like a cross between a hairy map of the continents and Mikey the Ninja Turtle after a bender. Luckily, my son loves it (crooked mohawk included) and school doesn’t restart until late August. His hair should grow out by then and the staining to his skin should fade. Hopefully. Eventually. Meh, whatever. My books are Undertow, Stormfront, True North, and Cruel Summer.
Come find me! I have leftover green dye!
