Last September I had an idea for a character cross my mind--a girl dealing with all the crap that happens in high school who's also discovering that she's psychic. I thought about how freaking difficult high school was to begin with, especially freshman year, and then I thought, it would have really put things into perspective if I'd had bigger problems than boys. But then I wondered if that would be true. Regardless, I felt pretty sure that I knew how I'd start that book if I were the one writing it. And so I wrote it.
Now I'm learning about the publishing industry, gathering feedback,
and preparing to let this girl out into the world. I've found that
writing a novel is only the first step. There will be many more before
Katie finds her way into other reader's hearts. I'm excited and anxious
in equal measures.
