Current Hot Questions

When does your next book come out?
Missing (standalone YA romantic thriller) – April 2017
Rituals (final Cainsville book) – August 2017
For 2018, you’ll see the third Rockton book, a second Cainsville novella and another standalone YA. You might also see a couple of extra novellas in 2017/18.

When are you going to come to my city for an event?
As soon as an event is confirmed, I put it here. My publisher arranges signings and I have no say in where they send me. For other events, I accept a limited number of invitations (to attend conventions, give workshops, speak at libraries.)

How long will the Cainsville series be?
I’ve finished book 5 (Rituals), which wraps everything up nicely…for now! There will also be a few novellas. The first (Lost Souls) came out in early 2018.

How many books will be in the City of the Lost series?
This is the one that starts with City of the Lost 🙂 I call it my Rockton series. The publishers call it the Casey Duncan series. Whatever the name, I’m currently contracted for 4 books, so it will be at least that long.

Will you be continuing in middle-grade after The Blackwell Pages?
At this point, no. The Blackwell Pages trilogy ended with Thor’s Serpents and my current schedule for YA and adult is too jam-packed for me to add more middle-grade fiction.

Any chance of more Nadia?
Ah, the Nadia books. I’m terribly fond of them, despite the fact they never matched the sales of my other series. They do have their loyal readership, though, so I did write a novella for Nadia and Jack (Double Play)and I hope to do another in 2017/18..

When are you going to write a fourth Darkest Powers book?
While the initial trilogy ended with The Reckoning, the series itself continued with the Darkness Rising trilogy, featuring different teens in the same world, who are subjects of another Edison Group experiment. The two groups joined forces in the last book of the series, The Rising.

So the YA series is finished after The Rising?
That series (Darkest Powers & Darkness Rising) is finished at 6 novels and assorted short fiction, including Atoning, set after the trilogies ended. For novels, the Age of Legends started with Sea of Shadows, and wrapped up in 2016. Next I’m doing 3 standalone YA thrillers, beginning with The Masked Truth.

Is the Otherworld really over?
Thirteen was the final book in the series. The novellas and short fiction wrapped up with a final novella (Driven) in 2016. In adult fiction, I moved on to the Cainsville series (which began with Omens) and a new mystery series starting with City of the Lost.
