From Author to Awethor

I heart book tour.


My world–a white office with yellow accents and a dirty computer monitor–expands. The influx of new sights and sounds fills me with inspiration and always teaches me something new. Here are some of those things:

On Being in Awe

– It’s official. I am no longer an author, I am awe-thor. I met so many incredibly talented YA writers in the past month. I am humbled and inspired.

– I spent a fortune on YA books.

On Starbucks

– Employees are not charmed by my refusal to say things like grande or venti.

– Starbucks in Columbia, SC does not offer yogurt parfait.

– Everyone standing in line looks anemic.

– I now drink tea.

On Airplanes

– I have restless leg syndrome.

– It’s possible to stare at the seat in front of you for six hours straight. The woman in 3B proved it.

– I do some of my best journaling at 35,000 feet.

Most Unusual Questions I Was Asked by Students.

– Is that your real hair color? (which one?)

– How much money do you make? (That’s up to you.)

– Do you think you look like Victoria Justice? (Who?)

– Do you eat chicken? (Only when it’s raw.)

On You

– Thank you for your hugs and letters and gifts and praise and support and literacy. There’s nothing more inspiring than meeting the people who read my books. It keeps me in my chair on 80 degree days like today and makes returning to the cone of silence a lot less lonely.

– S0 does Twitter.

Until we meet again,
