Undertow This Summer

    Sometimes I call UNDERTOW the Little Blue Book That Could because it keeps landing on lists years after it launched (not that I’m complaining). Of course, then my friends remind me that the sucker weighs close to a pound and is nearly 100,000 words long, so “little” ain’t so little. Pfft – details. […]

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 […]

Writing to Distraction

“I set a goal for myself everyday when I write – 10 pages a day – and it’s much harder because I’m too dumb to turn off my Twitter and everything so it’s always on and it’s a real distraction. It’s a major distraction.” – R.L. Stine     I’ll be honest: even at my […]

Hall High School’s Epic Student Storytellers

Dear World: This past week I was able to crash the party at Hall High School in West Hartford Connecticut for two days straight. If you are a parent reading this, and your child is suddenly writing until their fingers bleed and daydreaming on a whole new level, that’s probably my fault. Not only were […]

Last Light – Updates (stop screaming)

Dear Reader, Let’s face it . . . it’s been a year, almost exactly, since True North came out and you’re getting anxious. “Where’s Last Light?” you demand. “What has Conway been doing for a WHOLE year if she’s not strapped to her desk, inhaling caffeine?” Well, truth be told, 2016 was a bit of […]

#IGAuthorLifeJan – DAY 14 – National Vision Board Day I’d like to start this post by saying I had no clue what the Vision Board Day thing was. I actually thought is was like, a vision test. You know? Read the letters on the board a mile from ya? Yeah – I’m outta the loop, […]

#IGAuthorLifeJan – DAY 12 – TBT

#IGAuthorLifeJan – DAY 12 TBT In the Summer of 2013, before Undertow even came out, I had the honor of working with some very talented Cape Cod teens – all of who looked like the characters from Undertow. They were bold enough and brave enough to be the faces of a book that had yet to […]

#IGAuthorLifeJan Day 2 – Goals

So, today for the #IGAuthorLifeJan the theme is “Goals.” This is also known as “Lies formerly known as goals before life got in the way,” but hey . . . wadda I know, right? So, if I could shoot for the moon, then my goals would be to wrap Last Light up in March and have […]

Brain Melt

“Puke and rally, puppy dog. We’re needed on the rooftop.” – Kian, Last Light When I first started writing the Undertow series, I had no clue what the characters would do for people. What their lives and their story would mean to people. And honestly, I had no clue the impact that the fictional world and […]

Writer Woe Number 428 (or something like that): Too Many Blasted Characters

First of all, I know what you’re going to say. You’re going to say that the sheer volume of characters in my novels is my own stupid fault. That I was a doofus and basically unleashed the population of a small movie theater (on a Harry Potter premier night) into my imagination and said, “Sure […]
