Four important lessons I've learned from writing a novel featuring characters from cultural backgrounds that are not my own.
When I decided to write a novel where science played into the plot, I didn't want to revert to standard tropes. I wanted the science to feel real.
Music is a central component of my debut novel, When We Vanished, so I decided to create a playlist of songs that influenced the book.
Ah, the ubiquitous crow. No matter where you are (at least here in the Pacific Northwest), you can be assured that crows will be there, too.
Go on a virtual tour of some of the locations mentioned in When We Vanished, the first book of the Call of the Crow Quartet.
The stakes are lower when choosing the perfect name for a fictional creation. But I've put as much thought into naming my characters as I did my children.
