Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
There’s a quote in the novel that says, “Don’t be someone who defines her live by someone else’s death.” I think it’s possible to heal, and even love again, after the suicide of a loved one.
Have you started another book yet?
I’m writing 12 novels in 12 months, so I can’t let any moss grow under my feet! I’ve got my final four novels in various stages of development.
Are you reading any interesting books at the moment?
I am currently reading Burn, which is Book Three of the Breathless trilogy by Maya Banks. I’m a fan of all three books and have been looking forward to reading the final book of the trilogy for a few months.
Do you have any advice for writers?
Write every day without fail, even if it’s just for a few minutes. I think it’s important to develop a habit of writing and make it a priority.
What contributes to making a writer successful?
I think the most important thing is tenacity. I think many people don’t realize their dreams because they give up too quickly. I also think it is easy to give up when the going gets rough. You need to stick with it and keep working towards your goal.
This NEW ADULT ROMANCE contains MATURE LANGUAGE and SUBJECT MATTER and is intended for readers ages 17+.
“Don’t be someone who defines her life by someone else’s death.”
Dee Dee DeMarco’s brother, Alex, was funny, free-spirited and creative. He was also gay. Tormented by bullies, Alex killed himself on his 15th birthday.
Two years later, and now in college, Dee Dee believes getting a summer job working with a college-prep program for disadvantaged high school students is a stroke of luck, until she discovers that the guy assigned to co-lead her group is Cameron Connelly, a star basketball player and one of the bullies who tormented her brother to death. How can Dee Dee possibly spend the entire summer working so closely with one of the boys she blames for her brother’s death?
