What inspired you to write your book?
I was totally blindsided on a run one evening. I had been reading many books in the genre, both adult and YA, so I suppose I had vampires on the brain, and suddenly Alex was running along with me. Her character came really quickly, as did the opening scenes of the book. I got home, grabbed a notebook, and began to write. It was the end of the school year and I’m sure I had piles of correcting to complete, but I was totally immersed in the writing. There were more than a few days that I got home at three in the afternoon, wrote until one or two in the morning, then woke up at five-thirty for school the next day. If school hadn’t ended, giving me more time to write, I likely would have suffered some serious medical complication from lack of sleep. As it was, with ample time that summer, I completed the entire handwritten draft in two and a half months. The editing, revising, and rewriting process took much longer.
