L.K. Madigan is a writer living in Portland, Oregon, who finds it odd to speak in the third person. Therefore:
Hi. I am married with one son, two big black dogs, hundreds of books, and a couple of beaters, I mean vintage cars.
Fifteen-year-old Blake has a girlfriend and a friend who's a girl. One of them loves him, the other one needs him.
When he snapped a picture of a street person for his photography homework, Blake never dreamed that the woman in the photo was his friend Marissa's long-lost meth addicted mom.
In a tangle of life, death, and love, Blake will emerge with a more sharply defined snapshot of loyalty.
And as for my questionnez dujour:
1. If you had a time machine and could go back to the early days of your writing career and give yourself one piece of advice, what would it be?
Trust that the journey will take you exactly where you’re supposed to go.
2. If you weren't a writer, what would you want to be (or what do you think you would be), career-wise?
3. What did you do to celebrate your book deal? Pop some champagne? Extravagant purchase? Dinner out? Pizza delivery?
My husband bought me flowers and chocolates!
And when I got my advance money, I bought a fancy pen. It feels really solid and authorial. :-)
Flowers, chocolate, and a good, solid pen. Sounds like a writer's emergency pack!
