What are some of the best tools available today for writers, especially those just starting out? Tools don’t matter. There are no tricks. Some things will work for you, others won’t. And it will be different for everyone. The real trick? Shut up and write something.
What do you do to unwind and relax? I knit and play with the giant dog I also love to read and have just started watching the Game of Thrones series which is fun.
Do you have any upcoming appearances that you would like to share with us? Yes! I’ll be at the Johns Hopkins University Barnes & Noble (Baltimore, MD) on August 4th 2013. (http://johns-hopkins.bncollege.com) Copies of White Chalk will be available for purchase at the event for me to sign!
If you could leave your readers with one bit of wisdom, what would you want it to be? Find the beauty. It’s always in there. Every person, every tragedy has a touch of beauty. If you take the time to see it, it will change the world.
When you wish to end your career, stop writing, and look back on your life, what thoughts would you like to have? Damn, that was a good story!
Chelle isn’t what most people consider a typical 13-year-old girl—she doesn’t laugh with friends, play sports, or hang out at the mall after school. Instead, she navigates a world well beyond her years.
Life in Dawson, ND spins on as she grasps at people, pleading for someone to save her—to return her to the simple childhood of unicorns on her bedroom wall and stories on her father’s knee.
When Troy Christiansen walks into her life, Chelle is desperate to believe his arrival will be her salvation. So much so, she forgets to save herself. After experiencing a tragedy at school, her world begins to crack, causing a deeper scar in her already fragile psyche.
Follow Chelle’s twisted tale of modern adolescence, as she travels down the rabbit hole into a reality none of us wants to admit actually exists.
