B: Which has been your favorite book to write in this trilogy?
S:Â Definitely FROST LIKE NIGHT! I loved seeing everything come together and getting to really delve into the characters in a deeper way, since theyâd all had at least two books to grow.
B:Â Which of your characters do you see yourself in the most?
S:Â Meira! Sheâs a bit of a wish fulfillment for meâsheâs who I wanted to be as a teen, someone loyal and strong and stubborn, who fights for what she wants and isnât afraid to get out there and make things happen!
B:Â What song best describes you writing habits?
S:Â I always get super sappy when I hear âGo the Distanceâ from Hercules, heh.
B: What has been the best moment of your career as a published author?
S: Meeting readers who love my books/characters as much as I do! Itâs still the most surreal thing, and by far the best part ð
B: What is your favorite carnival ride?
S: Oh god, I canât do rides AT ALLâsuper motion sick! Iâll gladly be the person who sits on a bench and holds everyoneâs bags while they ride, though.
B: What is your absolute favorite carnival food?
S: I have about a million food allergies, but if I could actually eat anything from a carnival and not get sick, Iâd devour the entire funnel cake booth.
B: What is your favorite season?
S: Autumn, for sureâperfect temperature, and the holidays are the best!
B: If someone dared you to write “book nerd” on your forehead while wearing your favorite pajamas – and then share a photo of it – would you do it? (If so, we double dog dare you to do it and share it with us right here!) ð
S: I feel like this should be a Snapchat filter, so:
Open INTL as long TBD ships to you!
