My next two books are part of a series that takes place on Martha's Vineyard during the summer. See that picture up there, that's me (on the right) and friend/author Megan McCafferty being interviewed for a TV show on Martha's Vineyard last summer. I looked at this picture a few times while slugging through LOCAL GIRLS so I could actually remember that it's sunny and warm and peaceful and perfect on the island. It's kind of hard to remember what it's like on the Vineyard in the summer when you've got left over Thanksgiving turkey in the refrigerator and your Christmas tree is blinking at you from the corner of the room. I'll post a description of both LOCAL GIRLS and RICH BOYS next time, when the sight of the main characters' names don't make me so dizzy.
In other news, am heading to NYC tomorrow to be interviewed for the Today Show in Australia. The interview is taking place live via satellite, and I'm having serious wardrobe issues. What to wear?
One more thing. Received an email from a girl who wrote to tell me she loved THE BOOK OF LUKE, but she had a question. Do Emily and Luke end up together always? And you know what, I didn't know the answer.
So I'd like to ask all the authors here a question: do you know how your characters' stories continue long after the last page is finished?
Must go look through closet for appropriate Aussie outfit. That's all for now!
