Wow! I’m thrilled to share that I won Creative Loafing’s 2015 Best of the Bay Award for BEST LOCAL FICTION WRITER!
I was a new mom when I wrote BLACK OUT. I was feeling fractured at that point in my life, struggling with the mommy-writer balance, and sleep deprived in the extreme. All of this might explain why protagonist Annie Powers is probably my most unreliable narrator — which is saying something. All I knew about Annie when I started writing was that she was in trouble and in flight. I knew that she was terrified of something, but that the real threat came from something else altogether. BLACK OUT was probably my most intense writing experience. If you haven’t read it, now is the perfect time. The eBook is on sale for $1.99!
Woo-hoo! I am over the moon, thrilled, and BEYOND excited to announce that I will be interviewing the incomparable Judy Blume on stage at the Tampa Bay Times Festival of Reading next month on Saturday, October 24th! I am a lifelong fan, so this is huge honor. I can’t wait and I hope you can be there!!
I loved chatting with Alex Segura over on Do Some Damage! We talked about the germ for CRAZY LOVE YOU, Gregg Hurwitz, Jud Myers from Blastoff Comics, graphic novels, character, fiction vs. reality, my daughter’s love of comics, and more. READ THE INTERVIEW!
