I am so excited about this book! It has already vaulted up to become one of my favorite thrillers ever and I think it is going to be HUGE. But you have to be careful how you describe The Salt Line: if you mention it is set in a dystopian future crawling with killer tic...

I'm back! Summer always unglues me, what with the heat and all the travel and the thousands of children running around and the alcohol. (Not that those last two are related.) What I lack in productivity and executive functioning skills, however, I make up for in readin...

A friend recently suggested I should compile a list of book recommendations for Father’s Day gifts. Owing to extreme domestic dysfunction (i.e. my children are out of school for the summer) this list is rolling in a little late. But it’s a great idea! Thank you, Ali Kr...

I won the dork lottery this year: my beloved local library system asked me to accompany them to this May’s BEA conference, held in Chicago. In case you aren't familiar with it, BEA stands for BookExpo America, and it defines itself as the leading book and author event...
