And now that it's available, I thought you should learn more about the author, as well as celebrate in all the buzz!
First, from the author:
Creating new characters is my favorite part of writing a new book. My goal is to make them feel real, like someone you’d know or be friends with in real life. For me, it’s not always an easy process. There’s a lot of trail and error, and occasionally, the characters take things into their own hands. Maybe I had an idea of what kind of person I wanted a character to be, but as the story unfolds, they develop into someone completely different. It’s an organic process, which sometimes requires some extra revising, but it’s an important part of connecting with my characters.
After final revisions were made, saying goodbye to the characters of An Unexpected Hunger was bittersweet. After months of writing and rewriting, it was finally time to let them go. My hope is that readers will connect with them as I have and feel a little bit of that bittersweetness when they hit the last page.
