My Toronto HUNTED launch (for the Canadian version by Fitzhenry & Whiteside) was a success! So many people that I care about were there–great writing friends, friend-friends, new friends, old friends, and some people I didn’t know who came to hear about Hunted. Thank you everyone who came! It...

Wow! I was quoted in an article “The Hunger Games: Empowering or Too Dark for Teens?” by librarian Audrey Barbakoff around YASaves! (beaming) She used quotes from my response to the whole Darkness Too Visible article and the YASaves movement because some parents are saying there is too...
