I've just finished reading Unremembered and loved it! What was your inspiration for the book?
I can't wait to find out what will happen to Sera and Zen next. Can you give fans any hints?
Phew! That was hard!
Which character in Unremembered did you enjoy writing the most?
This genre was brand new for me. My first time venturing into the world of sci-fi. And as all my contemporaries were comedies, it was oftentimes a challenge for me to write something darker and more serious. Cody, however, is the comic relief of the novel. So writing him was like a little link back to my comfort zone. I always felt like I was “home” when I wrote him. And it gave me the opportunity to make fun of myself a little. While Sera’s storyline is rather dark and mysterious and all these harrowing things are happening to her, Cody can always be counted on to lighten the mood with a comedic crack.
This book is quite a change of pace from your previous work. Why did you decide to write something in this particular genre?
During the editing process I imagine that several scenes must have been cut from the book. Which was the hardest to leave out?
Which other titles would you recommend for those that enjoyed Unremembered?
Some good ones in the YA genre include: ORIGIN by Jessica Khoury, MILA 2.0 by Debra Driza, BETA by Rachel Cohn, and EVE AND ADAM by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate.
