A Big Fat Hairy Dream Come True
A while back, Carrie and I got the crazy idea of writing a
quirky little genre-bending YA romance. You know, your typical girl-meets-boy-while-searching-for-Bigfoot
tale.  Now, we’re delighted to announce that SASQUATCH, LOVE, AND
OTHER IMAGINARY THINGS has...

Hooking the Reader in the First Chapter
So, no pressure or anything, but it turns out that first
chapters are pretty important. Readers don’t want to wait until page 50 for a

This year, rather than the usual vows (“I will go to the gym

She’s not scary – she’s cute…
The other day, I was thinking about why I love ghost stories
