For my next stop on the Keep of Ages Blog Tour, I’m dropping by Fiktshun to propose a fantasy cast for the Vault of Dreamers series. It was fun to think about which actors would be good to play Rosie, Linus, Burnham, and my other favorite characters.
Will the books ever become films or a series on Netflix? Hard to say, but it’s not impossible. I do have a film agent, and that’s a key step.
Rachel, the stellar blogger who runs Fiktshun, is also hosting a giveaway, so stop… Continue reading
The Keep of Ages Blog Tour begins today! My first stop is at BookhoundsYA where Mary is sharing an exclusive excerpt from The Keep of Ages. It’s a chapter from Linus’s point of view, and to be fair, for anyone who hasn’t read The Rule of Mirrors (Vault of Dreamers 2), I should warn that the chapter spoils a key detail about Linus. Then again, it’s kind of a cool detail, and you might like knowing about it.
The complete list of blogs on the tour is… Continue reading

Another fun fact: when I attended Hopkins, it was… Continue reading
I have an actual copy of The Keep of Ages in my happy hands. Yay! A box of my books arrived from my editor this weekend, and I have to say, it’s a sweet, awesome feeling to hold the real, final book for the first time. It’s like, Wow, this is really done. All those quiet, persistent days of writing resulted in this solid, physical object. Now, as readers step into Rosie’s world and interpret it as they like, this story will take on a life of its own.… Continue reading

“The near future” sounds like a new verb tense, like the past or the pluperfect, but to me it means a writing time somewhere between five minutes and a fifty years from now. My recent novels fall in this time frame, and I’ve been asked why I like to write then.
It’s simple, really. I’m curious about where we’re going as a people. In the Vault of Dreamers series, 50 years from now, a girl from the boxcar community of fictional Doli, Arizona, the poorest zip code in the country,… Continue reading
