Undertow Series Q and A

As I count down the days to the Daybreaker release, I thought I’d answer some questions I’ve had over the years related to the series and writing in general.   When you first started writing Undertow, did you know how the series was going to end? HA! Not really. Truth be told, I wasn’t sure […]

Titcomb’s Bookshop the Brave

      Back in 2013, before Undertow officially launched, I wandered into Titcomb’s Bookshop in Sandwich Massachusetts and happened to come face-to-face with owner Vicky Titcomb. I was hoping the fabulous, barn-like bookshop would take a chance on me – a self-pubbed weirdo from the Cape who wrote one YA novel on a sleep-deprived […]

Inside the Concepts of a Killer Nightclub

They say news comes in two forms: Good and Bad. The Good: I’m working on Last Light. The Bad: It’s gonna be huge and my fingers are bleeding. Sometimes I’m stalled in my writing by simply needing to come out of the story to do research so I can feel my way through a setting […]

In Defense of Insta-Love

I do three things when I’m trolling the aisles of heaven (re: bookstore), searching for a few new books to burn my paycheck on: Seek out a kick-ass cover. Read the back jacket. Read the first page . . . and maybe the Goodreads reviews. Let me tell ya – I’ve learned one thing about Goodreads […]

Book Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah Maas So, I’m gonna preface this by saying that I would not put this book ANYWHERE near a teen shelf. This is solidly New Adult, which is  17 / 18+   –  basically a heavy duty (HEAVY DUTY) PG-13, more likely soft R rating. But here’s the […]

Writing Real Characters

So, lately I’ve not been here, on my blog, because I am trying to get the final edits to CRUEL SUMMER done, so you can get your hot little hands on Kian, Ana, and MJ on March 16th, 2015 at the Girl Power Author Panel (deets to come). But I needed to squeeze in some […]

Launch Party prep and other moments of insanity

I have totally ignored my blog, but I swear it was for many good reasons! Well . . . most of the time. That whole incident when I stole my daughter’s jumbo bag of Mega M&Ms and inhaled the whole thing may not have been wise, but I was writing for Kian at the time. I […]

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 […]

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 […]
