When she was in therapy, I wrote <em>Sad Perfect</em> based on our family's experience as a way to understand what was going on.</p><h4> What attracted you to this genre: romance, mystery, non-fiction, etc.?</h4><p> I enjoy writing in the young adult space because kids are so impressionable.</p><h4> What book are you currently reading?</h4><p> Currently reading <em>The Agathas</em> by Liz Lawson and Kathleen Glasgow. And <em>The Counselors</em> by Jessica Goodman. I also recently read and loved <em>Family of Liars</em> by E. Lockhart. I'm looking forward to reading my friend Kelly de Vos's book <em>Go Hunt Me</em>. And a fabulous adult novel I recently read was <em>Our Little World</em> by Karen Winn.</p><h4> Are you writing anything now? If so, when will it come out?</h4><p> I am working on a new novel. I am not sure if it is going to be young adult or adult fiction. And there may or may not be a murder in it, and a swimming pool. I hope this book will see the light of day eventually, but for now, it lives not completely written on my laptop.</p><h4> If you weren't a writer, what would you do?</h4><p> When I'm not writing, I'm either editing other people's work or promoting other people's books in my job as a publicity manager for a book PR company. So, if I wasn't a writer, I would still be heavily involved in books and words!</p><h4> Do you use your local library?  If so, which library is it and what do you do there?</h4><p> Yes, I live very close to the Appaloosa Library, but don't get there as often as I would like! I love browsing the shelves and seeing what's new in YA!</p>​<br></div>
