I think my mother characters have changed a lot since Sasha was born, just because I understand what a hard job it is now, and I'm coming at it from another angle - like you just love and care about this person so much, and just want to protect them from everything.
Teenagers are a great audience and they are fearless about asking what they want to know.
I love writing about the summer between high school and college. It's the last gasp of really being a teen.
When I was a teen, I was never really into the captain of the football team or the student body president. The guys I liked were quirky and different: They listened to music I'd never heard of, never had lunch or gas money, and could always make you laugh.
I'm famously secretive about my work. Nobody reads my books till they're finished.
