Love” means never having to say you’re sorry

Whether you’re in a relationship with a BFF or a boy, this is a truism that simply isn’t, well, true. At some point in your life (probably many!) apologies will definitely be called for, and some will be easier to make than others.

The words I’m sorry have to be amongst the most difficult in the English language.  They convey a lot of unspoken subtext.  Sometimes they’re inadequate. Occasionally, they can be very powerful. But always, they should be delivered with sincerity.

I’m sorry you’re an idiot apparently doesn’t count.… Read More »

This is what a young adult book should be. YA authors take notes. You don’t need to dumb down a story that’s addressed to a teen audience. You can have a compelling story that doesn’t have to focus on two people wanting to jump each other’s bones. The main female doesn’t have to be a supposedly every girl character who is actually a Mary-Sue, and the main male does not have to be a controlling stalker. In this book there is no real romance. Sure there are hints of a developing romance but that’s all because the hero and heroine … Read More »

Gifts and Talents

Thanks for inviting me today, Cat. I thought I would talk to your readers about the importance of giving our characters gifts and talents. How do we come up with the superpowers our characters possess? And why is it so important to choose the right one? This doesn’t just apply to paranormal and supernatural beings. Even in contemporary YA fiction, the gifts and talents of our characters speak volumes about who they are.

When I created Jordie Dunn, my heroine from Heaven Is For heroes, I wanted to make her a strong, kick-butt girl that readers could … Read More »
