So, if you've been anywhere near Twilight fansites today, you've heard the news about Kristen Stewart donating a pair of black Keds to an organization called Shoe Revolt. They are a for-profit company who uses some of their proceeds to help combat human trafficking. As the author of Girl in the Mirror, a young adult novel about a girl who escapes human trafficking, I am so pleased to hear that celebrities are getting involved in this noble cause. Go Kristen!
What I Write
My young adult novels are dark, edgy, and realistic. Although I love paranormal and fantasy books, I prefer to create stories that could really happen (and in many cases, really are happening). For me, the echo of a story set firmly in the real world always haunts me long after I've read the final word. If you like Ellen Hopkins, Jay Asher, and Neal Shusterman, you might like my books, too.
