Book Launch Date for STORMFRONT

There are two things that should be known about me as a blogger (cue the whole “excuses, excuses” rant): 1. I am CONSTANTLY working – editing for someone, working on my own stuff, and getting grabbed to do a screen play (yeah, that last one was a shocker for me too). 2. I have kids […]

Two Authors, One Free Story

Well, my friends and fellow YA authors, Trisha Leaver and Lindsay Currie, have gone and done the unthinkable in the publishing world – they are GIVING AWAY one of their co-authored novels FOR FREE (online that is). Their novel SILO is a gift to their readers and will be posted in stages to WattPad. Below is a note […]

Four Seas Ice Cream and Undertow

It’s no secret that much of what is in UNDERTOW is “doable” in real life on Cape Cod. It’s like a teen’s guide on what to do on the Cape. Jump from the Town Neck bridge? Yup. Bonfire on Sandy Neck? Check! Drive out on the sand with a vehicle? Damn straight! Nosh on decadent […]

Welcome to Cape Cod

So . . . I have been totally neglectful of my blog, but it wasn’t because I was addicted to reruns of X-Files or something. I was finishing some edits to STORMFRONT which will launch this summer on Cape Cod (end of July  . . . I am hoping). I am also a mom and a […]

Chuck Wendig and Young Adult Fiction

I write YA (upper YA, if we are getting technical). My main audience is in the 15/16 year old range right through adulthood. The UNDERTOW series is a thinking person’s mystery, threaded through a wild cast of supernatural characters. My focus has always been on building real characters who jump off the page and haunt people […]

Bug versus Windshield

My son puked on the bus I drive this morning, and I had no paper towels. A crack formed in the bus windshield and slowly lengthened as I drove. I managed to shrink a favorite top to my daughter’s teenaged-size (she was thrilled). It poured buckets and my parked car ended up an oasis in […]

This day rocks!

Today has been a killer day, not only because two great writers (Lisa Burstein and Jim Hill) agreed to partake in the Blog-Tour-Writing-Process-Thing (thanks Trisha Leaver!), but I also finished STORMFRONT. I could actually run around screaming at the top of my lungs, but I would freak out the neighbors . . . though they […]
