Hey, NYC! Headed your way. Find me here, 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday 10/21. It’s my only NY stop for the rest of this year!
Thanks so much. I’m writing for YOU, so very happy my books speak to you.
I’d think writing a novel longhand would be quite a chore. Then you’d have to transpose it. You’ll have to put everything into a computer at some point anyway… you can’t submit a handwritten manuscript. Some people enjoy writing longhand, then moving it over. Experiment.
Thanks. Not sure about a sequel because I never plan them. Sometimes it feels right to do one. I haven’t been drawn to write one for IDENTICAL, but you never know.

Cottage Grove, though there are Eugene references. I did live in Cottage Grove for a short time.
Remember the books are fictionalized, so not everything in them is exactly the way things happened. So Kristina and Trey didn’t get back together (they did think about it, but it didn’t work out). But, yes, Marie is me (sort of). FALLOUT, BTW, is the least representative because I moved it into the future some. Hunter in real life is now 17, but he was 15 when I wrote it, so I aged him. The first two are about 60% fact, 40% fiction.
Many thanks, and no worries… lots of books to come!
You’ll find out in TRAFFICK, the book I’m writing now, which is the TRICKS sequel.
Thank YOU for reading and for sharing my books with your friends.
