I'm delighted to participate this year in Armchair BEA!  I'm even participating in a giveaway (a signed FERAL ARC and a signed hardcover of THE JUNCTION OF SUNSHINE AND LUCKY).  More on the giveaway here.

Without further ado, my introduction:

Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?

I'm the author of two previously-published YAs (A BLUE SO DARK and PLAYING HURT), as well as the MG THE JUNCTION OF SUNSHINE AND LUCKY and the forthcoming YA FERAL (August 26, 2014).  I started blogging as I geared up for the release of my debut (at the suggestion of my publisher).  I was hesitant to get out there; at the time I sold my first book, I honestly didn't know that the book blogging community existed.  I'm so glad I discovered it, though; I can't imagine writing and not participating in the smart, fun world of book blogging.

Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details -- Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. -- so we can connect more online.

Updates on my own releases, book recommendations, thoughts on the writing life.


What genre do you read the most? I love to read because ___________________ .

My reading interests are as varied as my writing interests (I've published a literary YA, a teen romance, a contemporary middle grade, and my next YA will also be my first mystery / thriller).  Each time I read a new book, it makes me a better writer.

What is your favorite blogging resource?

I find most new bloggers / blog posts through Twitter.

Spread the love by naming your favorite blogs/bloggers (doesn’t necessarily have to be book blogs/bloggers).

Some of my favorite bloggers are those who have been with me since my first book released in 2010 (the feel like old friends at this point): Gabrielle at Mod Podge Bookshelf, for instance, or Susan at Bloggin' 'bout Books.
